About Me

I'm a mother of four grandmother of seven and great grandmother of one. I have many hobbies and interests but gardening and rug hooking are my main interest at the moment. I live with my husband in the house that we built with the help of my brothers and have been married for 51years.

Today I had difficulty keeping my eyes fully opened. I was tired from too many late nights and early rising. I ran several errands in town after work like picking up a package of 25 ear tags for my little bull calves for ($120.06 tax included) , gassed up the car and picked up some grocery. I rush home for lunch and picked up my Friday mail. Such sweet surprise to find an envelope from Deb Reardon with her CD in it. I rushed home and put it in the CD player and listen to her calming music while I ate.  Such a treat. Thanks so much Deb, your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Then I grabbed my peeler and made my way to church to peel potatoes for the church supper, no photos of that because it never dawned on me to bring it along. I peeled along with others for about three hours and was thrilled when they asked me if I wanted the peelings for the squash and potatoes. One of my compost bin was totally empty and the other had about a foot of material left in it. Now it's full to the brim and the other has good foot of peeling.

I baked three carrots cakes which I will ice with cream cheese frosting tomorrow. Two for the church and the other is for my husband' s sweet tooth...

Two Carrot cakes for the church supper.

Tomorrow I work in the morning and after brunch I 'm back to church for mass and then to cut about 130 pies with my helper, Margaret until 6:00pm. We do this every year, twice a year. So I need to catch up on my zzzzzz...
