I agree Ann!

Catherine, how fun a tea party. Can wait to see the invite and what your girls come up with for the party.

DON'T. EVEN. TRY.

Just because asparagus is big does not mean it is woody. Big just means the plant is more mature. Woody generally is when the plants branch out and start to go to seed. As long as you pick them before they start to branch, they should be fine. Also, if the weather is really dry, they will get woody. I usually pick until sometime in July, when the weather is hot and dry. But I have to pick at least every other day to keep up with the growth in warmer weather. My nephew lives next to my sister about 1/2 hour south of us, and they said they've already frozen about 50 bunches. Mine is just barely up. Of course, if I tilled and weeded mine, I'd probably get better harvest. Last year we didn't give any away. We ended up eating all of it.

One loaf gone from the boys and another flew out of here to my oldest sons house!

Jan - it's a good thing there are only the two of you there. We would be in trouble if we were down to one bathroom with the four of us here.
Kathy, thanks for the link about gooseberries.
Ann, I think I had two consecutive weeks where I uploaded my card on the actual day. I think I have lost that trend this week. DD2 is using my supplies and has taken over my crafting area for her prep for the tea party. She was cutting white cs in a certain size and then scoring it in half. I looked at it and said, "Place cards?" She got a little exasperated with me! lol
Melody, I was always surprised to see how expensive asparagus was in the store because it truly grows like a weed, or dad's did.
DD2 made chocolate chip cookies again last night, but this time they were chocolate chip free. So tasty!
Gracie, here is the invitation DD2 made, along with the embossed vellum she put in front of it in the envelope that she sealed with sealing wax.

Thanks, Ann, I thought she did a great job with the invitation. DD2 doesn't play with my crafting tools often, DD1 is the one who makes cards and uses the supplies, so I really thought she did great.

Yes, I agree, DD2 did a wonderful job on the invitation. I love the wax seal too.

Awww, so cute with Wesley sitting in the window. So sweet and innocent! LOL

Default Hello

Good Evening,

Karen- thank You for the very beautiful card and the embossed pages you sent!

Ahhh, Catherine is back! Lovely invites and sweet kitty!

Ann, LOL, week one, yes, I think you will go crazy! The chirping birds woke my DD2 and I up this Am.....!

I attended a zoom rosary meeting this AM and everyone is FOR the gathering back at church for mass- thay all miss it very much. I an not the only nurse in the group, but am so suprised by this. And, one of the ladies (who was not present) just lost her mom, who was in a facility, to Covid.

Melodie- I have never liked asparagus, but hubbys mom used to grow it- there will never be any like his mom's!

Ann, yummm! That bread sounds delicious! You are so fortunate to have the kids so close by!

We are going to be so sad when the daughters leave! We are really enjoying having them at home here with us.

Tonight, DS called and chatted, baby was already in bed. DIL was out watering flowers. The baby will be one on Sunday, Mothers day... we will have to celebrate when we can. We had planned to head to Colorado to visit at the end of May, but that trip is off.....

Hope all are well !

Shelly

Kathy thanks for showing the gooseberries! I only just managed to see the cute puppy video, for some reason it’s been a blank until this morning, very funny.

Catherine I don’t particularly like cats all the men in the family are allergic to them, very cute photo though I love the startled look, or was it a guilty look!

I love the invitation card, it’s beautiful and the seal too.

Jan, I'm a dog person myself. DD1 has an adorable little dog named Honey and DD2 just got this kitten, Wesley (female), last August, I think it was. She was little then, she has grown so much. She is cute and yes, I think her look was guilty. But I do prefer dogs!

Glad your internet came back on!

Catherine, Steve’s Mum always had cats and they would always make a beeline for me, I’m sure the did it on purpose, one would climb on my knee and want me to stoke him and then Open his paws and grab my leg sticking his claws into me.

I meant to say Steve was so bad with his cat allergy if he had to go to do a job for his sister who had three cats he would do the job as quickly as possible and then Stand in the garden, if he just went on a visit he didn’t even go inside, he had an inhaler for a few years until he realised it was only bad after going to his Mums and sisters houses.

I think cats can tell when you aren't a cat person and, for some reason, make a beeline for you then...contrary critters! Thankfully, I don't mind Wesley for the most part. I don't like the way cats jump up on counters etc. that is probably one of my biggest reasons for not liking cats. When Wesley gets up on the dining table or even just goes into the kitchen, she goes to kitty jail, which is her carrier, for a time out. She knows she isn't supposed to do those things but still does them anyway.

Our son and DIL adopted two dogs from the rescue centre and one was a small terrier type, our son noticed the French stick had been chewed, our DIL said it was splodgy, he didn’t believe her, so we were over there and had just been shopping and I had left the French stick on the worktop, just went back in the kitchen and there he was on the worktop, how he managed to get up there I don’t know, they used to put it on the shopping list as splodgy bread, poor boy died five years ago.

Catherine I forgot to say good to see you back. The invitations and photo of Wesley are great. I am a cat lover although I do like little dogs. I’m afraid of big ones due to a childhood memory when I was attacked by a border collie. I used to have 2 cats in the UK....they are very perceptive animals and knew when I was leaving. It broke my heart. I also had one here but he got skin cancer which was sad. My cats used to jump onto the bath at the side of me and up onto my shoulders when they were kittens. I have seen friends have their small dogs on benches and my cats used to jump up onto the bench and I would be wiping lots afterwards...a bit like now LOL. It didn’t bother me as I always think of cats as being clean animals LOL. Our son’s dogs must be perceptive too and know my DH isn’t an animal lover...they make a beeline for him...and me...as soon as we visit LOL.

Kandie, our couch arrived and guess what....it’s not right. Murphy strikes again and I cannot believe it. It is a module couch and just as they were about to leave we were checking it out from the front and one seat is lighter than the rest of the couch. We ordered a light grey and the other is in a stone colour and much lighter. We are hoping that when they get to their next delivery that they find that they opened one box that was meant for the next client and they have our piece. If not we have to wait until they get us a replacement. In the meantime I have set my memory seat and it is so comfy. I can’t wait to watch the box tonight. I’ve now said to DH that now all we need are 2 new chairs, a new tv unit and a couple of small glass tables. He just rolled his eyes at me LOL. I just wish that when I ordered items for home that they were right. This is not the first time but at least they are going to fix it.

No more news from this end ladies. I am trying to have a day or two off from too much screen time and to try and get on top of my jobs at home. I keep telling myself I have lots of time but in reality if more restrictions are lifted life may change a little. Yesterday I was so productive and sorted out 2 boxes of memorabilia and managed to scrap and do my jigsaw.

Have a fun day and if anyone is thinking of arranging a video call sometime please let me know otherwise I may go ahead and just see when it suits Karen and see who would like to join in. Thanks.

Waving to you all.

Good Morning,
we just had lunch.


I don't eat gooseeberries, my DH loves them.
We love Asparagus, because of Covit19 it is very expensive this year. They didn't get enough harvesters.
My Sofa didn't arrive until now.
I'm on my way to my garden, I have to plant my Potatoes.
Sending hughs to you all.

Just been shopping, no lines but so many people without masks, I saw two neighbours , I waved to one and the other didn’t recognise me with a mask on so I snook away, I wasn’t risking talking to anyone without a mask
I was sweating with the mask on, I told the young man serving me it was too hot and he said yes wiping his brow!
I Bought salad stuff now as it’s too hot for normal meals.

I was looking for recipes to use old bananas up but they all seemed to have some ingredients I didn’t have when I spotted a recipe for butterscotch tart, so I thought it looks simple I could slice the banana on the top, very simple to make but used biscuit crumbs for the base instead of pastry to use them up, it turned out beautiful, had a slice for afters, guess what I totally forgot to put the banana on the top, LOL
If anyone wants the recipe I will put it up as it was so easy to make.

Everyone is geing a new sofa/couch and I really need one! It looks in good shape but it has gotten so uncomfortable that its hard to sit on.

DH's zoom meeting starts in 15 minutes so I need to prepare. I take the house phone back to the bedroom so it won't interrupt him if someone calls

Steve had a new chair delivered just before lockdown, he wanted a off white recliner I said it wouldn’t match the other cream sofas, I chose chocolate and it looks lovely as the carpets has dark brown in it but he tells our boys that I wouldn’t let him choose his own chair, I told him Seeing as he colour blind he’s not allowed to pick colours!

Trash barrels are out by the street already, so it must be Thursday.

I have seen gooseberry jam at our local farmer’s market but have never tried it.

And I’ve always disliked rhubarb until someone made strawberry rhubarb pie, and wow was that good!

Husbands and projects... mine dislikes change, but when he decides to do a task, it’s because it was his idea and not mine, lol. It took me three years to get him to let me take down the heavy brocade drapes with liners that had been hanging, he told me, for over 30 years. I’m still nagging him about the 20-year-old carpet. I want natural floors that are underneath, with a nice rug! But he has really made house changes in this last year, so he must be 1, agreeing with me that change is sometimes good and can add value to a home, or 2, he’s getting sick of listening to me complain and showing him photos online on Pinterest.

He’s putting siding on his shed now, so I get my daily housework done and then binge on tv shows while I work on hankie dolls.

Jayne... I can’t begin to express my shared frustration on couch issues. Tomorrow is a week since ours was returned and no one from service has called. How could someone where you are make a couch in two different shades? (Scratching head). It’s just beyond me. We’re ready now to go someplace next week, when furniture stores may be opening, and look for another couch, and then wait another 4-6 weeks for delivery. Meanwhile, we both hate these recliners; that’s why they had been banned to the basement!

What will you do now? I hope that company’s service department is more efficient than this one.

I have finally run out of hankies. I have about 30 dolls made. I’m waiting for a future time when visitation to nursing homes and similar places will be safely allowed again. Meanwhile, I’ve been on EBay and have 16 coming by mail next week.

I believe we are going to the plant nursery today for a few more plants which we’ll have to keep in the back porch for a few days due to a freeze warning for the next three nights. And I need to stop by a drug store and find another eye brow pencil color. What few eyebrows I have left are either white or nearly black, but black pencil is too harsh, and all the brown colors are the wrong shade and the dark hairs stand out. What a total pain! I’d forget about color entirely if I didn’t have only half an eye brow on the right due to scarring from the psoriasis!

Judge Milione on The People’s Court on TV is yelling at the plaintiff and defendant and she’s drowning out my thought processes.

Good morning to everyone, have a marvelous and crafty day!

Here’s how much room I have to sit in my recliner.

Ann, I forgot to mention I am so sympathetic with you at having a DH who hates to work on projects! How about your DSs? Are any of them handy?

Good morning. I woke up thinking it was Friday, where has the week gone? Then when I put on my fitbit, I realized it was only Thursday.

For those of you who do not like rhubarb, the muffins I made yesterday do not taste like rhubarb at all. I think I could give one to my daughter, and she wouldn't know there was rhubarb in them. Of course, she probably wouldn't try it until I told her what they are, and then she wouldn't try it at all. The recipe called for diced rhubarb -- not exactly sure what they mean by that, so I just chopped it pretty fine. It was a new to me recipe that called for buttermilk. I had some half n half that was starting to go bad, so I used that (added some lemon juice). I also added cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Forgot to put the streusel topping on, but they are so tasty.

Morning!

Kandie, the son that is handy is married and has three daughters and lives about 20 minutes away from us. And he is renovating their 1905 home, so he is always working on something. He is son number 2 and can do and put together anything. He has helped us in the past put works 65 hours per week and family so no time for helping us.

My mother loved rhubarb, and had a small patch of it on the side of the house. I like it but not if it is real sour in recipes.

It's sunny today but the day has already started badly as Athena started to barf so I took her by the collar and quickly took her outside. I had to hold on to her bent over by the collar as she was throwing up so now my back is more sore then when I woke.

Poor girl has such a funny stomach, I think she picks up pieces of food that my DH drops from not sitting up to the table! She can not tolerate much except chicken and her dog food.

Back later, have to get some things done today!

Steve’s brother lived in a town house with a small garden but it was quite long and at the bottom he grew rhubarb, he never even watered it, it just grew wild but it had massive thick stalks, very pink and sweet, he used to send the family home with arms full, loved it.

Jan, I'm sure you could substitute another fruit, like granny smith apples or something else. It's a pretty basic recipe. It uses brown sugar, so if you were using a sweeter fruit, you might want to adjust the sugar.  The recipe I used did not have cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.  I added those.  I also did not put in walnuts, but threw in a handful of raisins.  Attached recipe.  Make it your own.

Melody, those muffins sound so yummy! My mom has rhubarb back in Wisconsin. It will probably be gone by the time I get back there.

Jayne, I'd love to be on a call with you and Karen! Let me know. I'd organize it, but you no what happens when I try to call...ha ha! Hope your couch section gets replaced soon. At least you have it to sit on.

Kandie, so sorry about the couch...what a bother. My DH and I always say customer service has gone down the toilet!

Ann, sorry about Athena. Poor girl and your poor back!

Catherine I used to have many cats before I married hubby. My DH says I've had enough cats for one lifetime now. LOL Dogs are easier to travel with, so I'll wait until I'm realllllllly old, and stay home all the time, to get another cat. I love potbelly pigs, goats, horses, cows, hamsters, guinea pigs, squirrels, birds, muskrats, otters, turtles...I guess I'm just an animal lover. Hah! Oh wait, I hate snakes!
