My husband was away helping his parents over the weekend so I used some of my alone time to freshen up and clean our home.
So today, I had plenty of time to sew.
I made 3 aprons for the 3 grandchildren that don’t live near us.
Two of them were sewn from some printed panels my mother in law asked me to sew.
But I know all 3 of the siblings will want aprons so I made a 3rd one for the oldest. It’s fun fabric, aprons printed on an apron
I stopped at Walmart to get some cookie mixes to mail with the aprons and found these 2 along with lots of other flavors in the same brand.
They look like flavors children will like. They also had gingerbread, several colors of sugar cookies and several kinds of edible cookie dough mixes in the same brand and all at the same price.
When I got to the post office to mail this and another gift, the line was so long- I felt like leaving but I got in the line and thankfully everyone was masked and standing at a distance and the line went much faster than I expected.
My husband asked for raisin bread so I baked some in the bread machine. It tastes delicious but didn’t rise much,
I tested my yeast afterward and the yeast was quite active so I guess next time I should let the raisin bread dough mix in the machine but then let it rise in a baking pan and bake it in the big oven.
Supper was chicken tacos with canned refried beans and corn.
It’s cold here but no snow like I’m hearing other bloggers talk about in other states.
Tomorrow is December 1 and I’ve been thinking all day that I’d like to try to blog every day until Christmas - kind of a Blogmas like youtubers that do daily December videos and call it Vlogmas. I don’t expect I just invented Blogmas, but I don’t remember anyone else calling it that.
So, I’m planning and hoping to do daily posts for the next 24 days -
Christmas gatherings will be different this year but I still plan to do Christmas things, they just might be on a smaller scale than in the past.
I’ll be blogging about that and about just my normal home stuff.
Hope you all are well.
See you tomorrow
❤️ Rhonda ❤️
