If you do stuff, stuff gets done.......
Photo was taken around Christmas 1962 when I had just turned 5. That is my pretty mom behind me. She made the cross stitched clock on the buffet. The stocking with my name on it was made her mother and delivered to me before my first Christmas even though I was not even a week old. My apron was made by great grandmother. I come from a long line of homemakers who did stuff and got lots done.

Monday to do list

Good morning everyone!
My list is shorter this week,  I did all the laundry and some cleaning last night.  We are waiting to hear when my husband's shoulder surgery will be scheduled so I mainly plan to be flexible and to keep things done up at home as much as possible, 

My main goal is get that flag quilt finished!

Images are rubber stamped and colored with pencils, old fashioned notebook paper on a clipboard.

Have a good week everyone. 
If you do stuff, stuff gets done!

Special Days

We celebrated St. Patrick's day a few days late with a play day for these 4 sweet cousins and siblings.  My daughter made this rainbow fruit pizza.
It was delicious and was enjoyed by the little ones as well as the adults.


My husband and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary. He ordered this beautiful bouquet straight from Hawaii and it arrived a few days early.
I just love them.  We first saw bird of paradise flowers when we were newlyweds and stationed in Southern California and have liked them ever since.

Fancy vegetables

We found these varieties of fresh produce at Sprouts, a chain grocery store sort of like Whole Foods.
One night I cooked some of the fresh green beans with some of the whole tiny potatoes - just delicious!
Another night, I oven roasted some the tiny potatoes with just a little olive oil and coarse salt.  

The rainbow organic carrots are good too, I am not sure they are any tastier than regular orange carrots, but they are pretty.  
I peeled the whole bag and chopped them and some celery.  They are great with a little dip for a snack or side dish.

My list is just old fashioned notebook paper on a clipboard. 
Designs were made with rubber stamps and colored pencils.
