Life is good!

Sunday, April 20, 2014

Well, now; accomplishments all around today!
I have my last load of laundry in. Yup wouldn't ya know it just when I thought it was all caught up LOL
I have dough rising for fresh whole grain buns to go with my Hawaiian ham and scalloped potato Easter Dinner, my house is clean and I've face timed with family. Life is good!

AND I'm about to embark on a new journey and start story writing again! I woke in the middle of the night with the inspiration! On what? My secret for now emoticon

Happy Easter to all those who celebrate and to those who don't, I trust that you're enjoying your long week end.

A father's birthday!

Saturday, April 19, 2014

I just got off of Face-time with my father (parents) for a first time! We five girls got the funds together and bought him a brand new netbook. At age 76 he is now finally online Now that just proves you're never to old to learn!
Plus being as I am thousands of miles away it makes my heart so much more at ease being able to talk to him face to face and be able to e-mail him letters and pictures.

We had wanted to do this for them several years ago but it didn't work the way we had wanted it to. So all in time.

And my pies, tarts and muffins are all cooling on the kitchen counter. Strawberry Rhubarb, Apple cinnamon, blueberry.
That should keep Walt's sweet tooth going for good while!

Have a wonderful and blessed Easter!

    What a small world! I actually flew to Florida on Monday to visit my father for his 84th birthday on 4/15. We also got him all set up on his iPAD to skype and face time. My son who was home in Virginia walked him through it. So you are so RIGHT! It is never too late to learn. My Dad does not look or seem his age at all...seems maybe 60! I miss him terribly as I do not get to see him much but we will do skype or face time now that he has it.

Now my Mom is another thing....she does not own a computer or cell phone. Our only communication is by phone and she lives in California. I wish she had a computer but she just does not want to learn now. She also will be 84 this year and is an great health. I will fly to see her this summer.

Enjoy your father -- I know it is so much better to be able to see them...I am so glad we have all technology to help us! emoticon

Another busy day ahead!

Saturday, April 19, 2014

Whew Couldn't sleep last night Mind was too busy. Once I did fall asleep though I slept rested and deep Woke up at 8:30!
Now I've gotten Walt taken care of: breakfast etc. I've had mine and my half cup of coffee while I already have my strawberries/rhubarb, and blueberries sitting waiting to be made into pies and tarts fro Walt. I already have an apple pie baked and cooling on the counter.

I need to quick finish up my morning chores; nasty cat box, get my last load of laundry on the go and run my few errands. Then it's to the baking and I want to also tackle the rearrangement and cleaning of the bedroom today.

And what's Walt doing? Staying out of my hair and watching his Star Trek marathon LOL

Spring!!!!!!!!! Fever!!!!!

Friday, April 18, 2014

Today I've completely re-organized my kitchen; fridge, cupboards everything.
I now have a space for my good china, a space for my every day use dishes. My pots are in the bottom drawer of my stove. My baking pans have their own drawers. My bowls and measuring cups etc have their own cupboard. My lazy Susan is organized I have one cupboard for cereals. I have brand new canisters for flours sugars etc and separate glass ones for my pastas and rices Something i've never had! I even have a box for my breads! The next things I want are bins for my potatoes and onions! So now it's just the overall cleaning; sweeping mopping dusting and putting away the clean laundry! I should be done by bedtime LOL

    Have been toying with the idea of selling my china and using space for decluttering another kitchen cabinet. Have only used it twice in 40 years and it was not my first choice of a pattern. Purged my kitchen cabinets/drawers about 15 years ago but somehow gadgets and dishes have found the way back in.

Enjoy the re-organized spaces.
