Snow Day, Pioneer Woman, and Netflix

What a combination!

The Pioneer Woman, Season 1, is now on Netflix. I have been watching it and getting some very good meal ideas and recipes. Yesterday, I made her Beef and Bean Burritos from Episode 13.    They were very good. I used green enchila sauce with some tomato paste because I didn't have the sauce she used. I also used corn tortillas and love the flavor they gave it.  I also put my leftover hamburger meat filling on top just to use it all.

I plan to accomplish today  . . .

spend at least a couple of hours quilting
reading about gardening and hobby farms on my kindle
enjoy the beautiful few from the warmth of my den
package up some chicken breast that I had a friend get me from the Tyson chicken store

The only reason I am telling you this is that I hope if I write it down, I will actually do it.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.

Half a Snow Day!

We got a little bit of snow on Sunday. But, we still made it to school this morning. I had a feeling it would be short lived.

Sure enough, by 11 o'clock, the decision was made to close school at 12 to get the children (and staff) home safely.

About an hour after I got home, the snow stopped, only to start heavily about 2 hours later.

So around 4, I got the idea to sit down, read a magazine, and sip on a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy the snowfall.

What a life! So relaxing.

I just got the phone call. No school tomorrow. I guess I can have another relaxing day of quilting, reading, and drinking hot cocoa.

I did take some time to quilt on this quilt . . .

It has been 10 months since my mother died. Each time I quilt or pressure can food, I think of her and so want to call her up.

Monday evenings are when I sit with my dad. This week and last week, we had snow so I couldn't make it. Hopefully, I can get out tomorrow evening and visit with him, then.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.
