What's been going on...

Christmas morning we had about 14 people over for a big breakfast feast! It was such a nice time and so yummy! I made a sausage, cheese & egg casserole, hash brown casserole, three pounds of bacon and a crock pot casserole or hash browns, eggs, sausage and cheese. We also had fruit, coffee, OJ and cookies. Yes, cookies. lol. It was just such a joy to be able to sit around the room with people you care about and talk, laugh and play! Before all this went on my mom & I went over to little sis's and watched her and the kids open their presents. Good times.

This is our little bitty tree. I also wrapped presents in a natural kraft wrap with recycled Christmas cards too. It was nice not having to go out and buy wrapping paper this year.

I also made this. Tatertot casserole. I saw it on Pinterest and even though mine does not look as good, it WAS tasty & warm!

New Year's was quieter. My sis flew in from NC and we just hung out and watched House Hunters! :) We chatted about children, grandchildren to be and all matter of things. It was nice and quiet, except for the fireworks raging outside. I was paranoid that the property would catch on fire. I don't care for fireworks at all and it has been real dry here. Fortunately, God took care of it all with a very heavy blanket of dew so we were good. I didn’t even need to worry about it. J

We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of little baby Kai. My Miss K is due on Tuesday but she is showing absolutely no signs of giving birth. Nothing. Zippo. The doctor has set the date of the 24th to induce in case it has to go that way. Poor little girl is so tired and big and her feet hurt and well, anyone who has done this before understands. :} I go to bed every night wondering if I will get a middle of the night call. It will happen soon, but if you could, please pray everything goes well for her and the baby. Thanks.

Well, I am getting the ‘gardening itch’ again. I wasn’t going to start a garden this coming spring, but have changed my mind. As a matter of fact, I am planting some things this weekend. Not sure what yet, but going to plant something! I want to get all my containers and gardening areas cleaned out and ready to go too. My little sis has started one at their house so we can compare notes and such. My Oregano from last year is still doing well and I want to cut some and dry it. I have found a new love for Oregano! I will take some before and after pictures and do a post on this soon.

I have been working on a couple of quilts. I have the purple and black/striped one pinned and ready to quilt. Santa brought me a free motion and walking foot so I can quilt myself. I just have to practice a LOT!

The “brick wall” top is done, but I just have to put it together now. J The colors are so much more brighter than it shows in this picture. It is truly a "Spring time" quilt.

Thanks for reading! Have a lovely week!
