One of my favourite blogs...

I, absolutely adore everything about Lucy's blog over
at Attic24....completely smitten...


....so I've decided to work up a baby granny square blanket
similar to one of Lucy's blog for someone I know who is having a baby...

 

just a sneak peak..I.can't wait to get the first few blocks stitched together
then it might feel like a blanket and not just collection of squares.

Hopefully I will be able to get these worked up
and stitched together soon....so many projects....so little time!

Is there a blog you are completely smitten with?
Leave the address in the comments so that I can stop by
and visit the blog that makes your heart sing.

Bantam Chicks Available...limited delivery available...No Kidding!


Last fall, a very sweet blogger and her hunk of a husband
met my children and me in parking lot in a torential  downpour
and gifted us with a box of Bantam chickens...
inside the box was one insane rooster and 5 happy hens...

nine months later and OOOOHHHH...baby!


Actually it doesn't really take that long to get baby chicks....
it takes only 21 days...


and there wasn't just one baby....there were 8!!!!!

 

So here's my chance to bring a little chicky love to your home....
the chicks are now going on 5 weeks old and they are feathered out
and ready to find a new home....we have 7 chicks that need a new home...

On Wednesday of this week,we will be driving from
Wisconsin to Buffalo, New York for a hockey tournament....
so if you live somewhere in that general direction
we will bring the chicks to you....no charge....just a chance for you
to have as much fun as we've had raising a small back yard flock.

pot roast and pie

i don't worry much about the crust on the bottom being perfect ...


... a little cream around the edges and thick fluting...no one will notice....


...my sweet little pie bird, you make me smile....


...pie by hand...
I've always used lard and cream to make the crust.
thank goodness we have berries in the fridge....
this pie was eaten for breakfast by my littles....
so good to have you home!


and now on to the pot roast....up until two weeks ago I had never
made a pot roast...Two pot roasts later, we are completely smitten
with this recipe from The Pioneer Woman....
and the potatoes are to die for...absolutley nothing compares!!!

Sundays will never be the same in our home again...
