Darn It Day 8

I was so busy yesterday away from the house that by the time I made it back, I was so tired to write anything.
Spent the day at Mom and Dads then had a class that evening.
I've been taking our county's  Master Gardener program since last month. It is a 10 week course, which we are about half way through. Last night was on Annuals and Perennials, so love ever moment.

While at moms I had taken a couple of the corner blocks for the Retro Air-Ship Propeller to work on.

Have one more left to prep and I'll be one step closer to the finish.

This morning I was able to get an hour in quilting on Scandinavian Christmas and this is what was accomplished,

outlined the animals and a portion of this sections frame. This wall hanging has been a pleasure to work on for me.

Yesterday I realized I needed to do more for my parents and making more meals for them is where I can step up.

Found a couple of cookbooks to get me started. These here are based on the DASH diet. Gave a link here if your interested in knowing more about a low sodium/ heart health eating plan

This evening I made Chicken and Rice soup and a Pasta Chicken Salad. I'll take these to them tomorrow and talk to them about what they would like next.

Update on the mung beans, I believe they are on the old side. Here it is 3 day now and they are just now starting to sprout out. Will need to pick up some new ones the next time I go to Tulsa.



  1. Both your projects are coming along so well--that embroidery is lovely...and the Air ship Propeller is one of my favorite blocks anxious to see yours all together...hugs, Julierose

  2. I noticed the 2 pages book marking your new cookbooks with the heading heart failure recipe of the month and was wondering where you got them. My DH has a bad heart with heart failure going on 13 + years. He’s currently in the transplant list so something like these could be helpful.

    Any insight on this would be appreciated.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
