I haven't been doing much in my studio today as I've been creating in my kitchen. I think the correct terminology is a bad 7 letter word for me - "cooking". I'm not much for cooking, baking, housework etc, but they are necessary evils, and with all of the groceries I just purchased I thought I had better get some meals prepared and frozen for future use (when stamping is all I want to do). So far I have made 8 servings of Leek/Sweet Potato Soup, 6 Servings of Beef Macaroni dinner (something like Hamburger helper), and 12 servings of Sausage Lasagna - yum yum. My poor husband has been really getting dish pan hands, and my freezer is groaning having to freeze all that prepared food. I've still got a couple more days of cooking, then I will have enough meals prepared for an entire month - YIPPEE!!! Oh, I've also made 20 jelly jars of Strawberry jam - double yum yum!!!! The jam I put in a closet for safe keeping until this winter. I make my own jams and jellies and give them as Christmas presents, along with other handmade items. Well, back to the grind stone called a "kitchen". Enjoy and if you would like any of my recipes, just give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org

Today was a sort of blah weather day which was perfect to go grocery shopping. I wouldn't mention this fact other than I shop for one months worth of food at a time, so you can only imagine that 4 1/2 hours later I got out of the grocery store. Also, you'll have to believe me when I say I'm still not done - I have to go to the meat market yet. Needless to say I am bushed, I've got my feet up and you're right "...no playday today..." There's always the weekend and yes I plan on using some of my backgrounds that I've made so far for some more cards. I'm trying to stock pile a few dozen or so, so I can send out RAK's - shhhhh, don't tell anyone. Well, back to my recliner and the news. Have a creative weekend, enjoy my blog and please leave a comment or two.
