I still owe out a trillion blog visits and emails but wanted to put down my thoughts and adventures while they are fresh in my mind.
We had a great weekend with our daughter.
First we went into town on Saturday morning and hit the flea market.
This is my dear friend Rose in the front - she met us at the flea market (danger danger with us two together at a market - only sometimes it helps if one of us is short a few coins... we enable one another) And the beauty in the back with dark hair is our daughter!
We had a good time and I even found a little travel iron for 50 cents - HA!
Rose came home with us and we all made cards for about four hours.
Later, Melanie and her friend allowed us to pamper them the first evening but the second one we were pushed back into our chairs and ordered just to enjoy!
First took fresh chicken breasts, patted them dry, then stuffed them with a mixture of goat cheese, mushrooms and shallots and then wrapped them in prosciutto.
See, all ready for the oven!
Next, she baked a spaghetti squash in the oven, whole! What a great way to make this. Was soft and succulent - steamed in its own self. She also steamed fresh cut green beans to accompany.
Cooking up a storm!
With aid from her boyfriend who was very helpful!
They turned out wonderful.
A veritable feast!
And all too soon the weekend was over and I was waving goodbye. Thank you sweet daughter for everything - we loved having you.
And its been snowing, snowing SNOWING here all day. Lots of wet and heavy stuff. Not pleasant for much at all. Most of it is melting too. Hopefully it will stop in the next day. They tell us it will but we will see.
Seeing as I have a trillion things still on my list I'm going to keep this short. I am able to give you a sweet 8 x 8 inch Quick Page that my friend Valinda (big hug) made for you using my Junkyard Garden kit. Hope you enjoy. You will want to visit Valinda's site to see the (gasp!) gorgeous doll her daughter Christy made. She's got incredible talent. She also made the pretty cross which was part of the surprise Christmas package Valinda sent me. (Thank you Valinda!)
I did not take a closeup of the cross because a little bird told me that my Sister in Law Judy might recieve one as well and I did not want to wreck the surprise. You can see a picture of the cross at Judy's BLOG and also find out her BIG news! And see cute baby pics. :) Who can resist a baby pic?
This pretty QP has three windows in it - I just darkened the bottom for the preview. Simply click on the graphic to download!
