Happy Birthday Dancing in the Dark!

I can finally show the lap throw that I've been working on. It was for my Sister's Birthday. I love the colors!!!
We had a great day together. Lunch was a yummy Mexican place. The day was beautiful. Of course it warms up right when I give her a blanket. Oh well, I think she had a good Birthday. Love ya sissy.

Buddy has aways loved to go on the computer with me. I think he likes Frontierville!
So if my Frontierville looks a little off. It's because Buddy is playing it.
Gotta love him.

Look Out!

Watch out Buddy. Mom's got her vacuum out! Do you think she sees me here??

Maybe if I duck down!
Awww shucks she knows all my hiding places. But this green lawndry basket is pretty cool.
Maybe I'll just take a nap. And always with great color!

.....Zen Cooking.......

Ok, last night I watched a good documentary on Zen cooking. It was with Edward Espe Brown. It really made you think about what you put into cooking. People don't seem to think about what they cram into their bodies. And the love from the heart that is put into each homemade meal. I wanted to show my cookie sheet. It's old, stained and bent. But so am I!!
And I'm worth much more with my wisdom and worn out body. Then a youngster with no wisdom lines (wrinkles). We have worked hard to get to this age. We have knowledge of many things. Not just the newest CD's and tennis shoes. Old things tell a story of life. Be it a human or an old cookie sheet.
I decided to make up my own cranberry,orange zest scones. So here we go.
Since I prefer to do things quick and easy, I used Good ole Bisquick. Plus I like the flavor of it. I just used the Biscuit recipe. Added cranberries, and since I only had a tangerine and not a orange. I added tangerine zest. lol
Then I dumped it out to roll and cut. Notice my little Buddy helper?
Then they were placed on my good ole worn cookie sheet. Which is an old air bake sheet. Still works wonders!
And WalLa!!!
I brushed them with butter and sprinkled sugar on top before baking. They are so tasty with coffee or tea. Aren't you glad this ole fart can still bake from the heart?? Love ya all and always with great color!

Sleep Over!

I told my sweet Sister that while peanut is on winter break, I would have her over to spend the night. A good ole fashion sleep over. We had such a good time. She is such a sweetheart. Here is a picture of her playing Xbox Kinect. She love love loved it. My sis, her grandma said she had sore legs the next day. lol We made hot chocolate with mini marshmallow's and watched a movie. She took the couch and I took the floor. UGH!! Man the floor is hard. Next time I'm sleeping in my own bed. But she wanted me close this time.
Peanut loved playing with Buddy too! The next day she played with some of the neighborhood kids. I think she had a good time and it gave Grandma a nice break. Hope to have her stay again. Hugs Peanut!
