What are you doing on the Fourth of July? Beach, Picnic, River? Well my family is coming up and we are going to be eating the standard Catholic Church Chicken Stew (a local Catholic Church always makes chicken stew and barbeque) and a smoked Boston But from the local High School Football team fundraiser. So we are pretty much going to sit back and eat. My daughter is planning on making a rather difficult patriotic dessert. I will post a picture if it turns out. To make my blog more patriotic, I'm posting some patriotic cards! Happy Fourth of July!
A good friend of mine has introducted me to a new hobby. OH NO! Says my husband. Everytime you get a new friend, they come with a new hobby. Knitting is fun so far. I haven't done anything hard still just practicing. Can't wait to really do something neat!
Had a really fun day today. We lost our kitty Lulu. She does not go outside, so we knew she was in the house. My other cat, Mittens, knew something was wrong and talked to me all day, but I couldn't understand what he wanted. He was saying that Lulu was locked in the linen closet! We didn't find her until this evening when my son opened the door to the linen closet and out fell a very sleepy Lulu. She has kept all of us in her sight the rest of the evening and Mittens was so tired of trying to tell us where she was that he has gone to bed. What a day! Ok so my neighbors house got in here and I'm not that computer savy and can't get rid of it. Oh well, better luck tomorrow.
Can't believe we have been snowed in again in the "Heart of Dixie" We have missed 3 days of school and are getting a little cabin fever. The whole neighborhood had a great time playing in the snow and making snowmen and women and sledding. For some of us who have lived here our whole lives this is the only the second time we have had a snow like this in our lifetime.
The first pic is of most of our street, the second is of dear daughter sledding! Thanks to Nana for taking the pictures!
I saw this page on Delta Phi Scrappa website, they will do this at their annual convention. I really like it, it's simple and elegant and I think I can case it pretty well! I'll be snowed in tomorrow and no school, soooo, I'm going to try to scap!
I finally made a card, actually an invitation. I belong to a "supper club" and it was my turn to host. There are 6 couples. My theme was "southern home cooking" . The picture is of my invitation. I know it says 'Bon Appetit", but anyway, you know I love French. We had country steak and gravy, homemade chicken and dumplings, candied apples, cabbage casserole, mashed potatoes, and Jack Daniels Chocolate Pecan Pie. I must say it went well and everyone loved the food.
I have always loved France and the French language since I was in kindergarten and learned all of my numbers and colors in French. It was no suprise that I became a French teacher. I love everything that's vintage, pretty, girlie, frenchie, etc.
