A Lazy Weekend -- Maybe

My dad and mom have a pear tree  that usually produces quite a bit of fruit. When I visited on Monday, my brother had a bucket of pears picked and ready for me. So this morning, I made pear sauce. This is my second batch for the season. I made 5 1/2 pints.

I put away quit a few jars of applesauce also. I will use most of it when making applesauce cake. I also put quite a few bags of sliced apples in the freezer.

My mom had a recipe for applesauce cake that has always been a big hit. We grew up with it so we were used to it. But it became a favorite of several of the Grandkids.  For some reason, mine doesn't seem to taste near as good.

As always the weekend was busy. I spent Saturday and Sunday morning cleaning some. Didn't get as much done as I needed to.  We attended Mass in Fort Smith (about 40 miles away) Sunday evening, then had a nice dinner with the kids at the Outback Steak House.

I still haven't made it to the sewing room.

What did you do this weekend?

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!

Welcome to the family

The wedding was beautiful Saturday.

Welcome to the family, Zak and Aiden!

 I don't have pictures yet but will post more when I get them.

I need to get back in the groove. I have a baby quilt to make.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.

Life is Good!

My journal entry this morning!

You Remain.
                            Hebrews 1:11

Now, I sit outside drinking my morning coffee with a view like none other. It is early morning. The birds are singing. A dog is barking in the distance. The temperatures are cool enough that I had to put on a sweatshirt to be comfortable. I hear a hummingbird buzzing around searching for its morning nectar. The cats think they are sneaking up on me, but I can hear them munching on their food. A hunting season must have opened because I can hear gun shots in the distance. I heard  them yesterday, also. A cool breeze in blowing through the tree leaves causing them to rattle. Yes, indeed, You remain.

Have a Blessed Day!

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.
