What a busy day today

Work was really busy tonight just enough to keep me busy but not to over whelming so that was good.  Did a little bit of shopping after work, needed to get a container to ship some cookies to a friend who is here in the United States for the first time visiting her Sister and family in Chicago.  She knows I love to bake so asked me to make her some of my banana bread and chocolate chip cookies and brownies for her to take back to Saudi Arabia to her husband and kids. I could not believe it when I heard my baking will be going to another country.  I just hope they all like them. 
 It is a little chilly tonight so have a cup of hot tea and watching a little bit more TV before I need to get into bed.  I have to be at work at 6 am tomorrow but will be out at 2. Then it is home to get the rest of the stuff baked and packaged up to send off to her. 

I need be looking online for some cookie cutters to some cookies for the fall and see if I can get some sold at work. So far everyone Loves my Banana Bread.  I am going to put together some Cookie Bouquets ( well hoping anyway) to get some online to sell.  And for a friend to auction off for a group she is in.  

Well, Off to get in my warm nice bed and get some sleep.

Wednesday 10/12/2013

What a  lazy day it has been here in Texas. We are on our 2nd day of rain and we sure needed it. But it really has not helped our lakes at all sense the ground is just soaking it all up.  The weatherman says this should be the end of it.
 My plans today are to do some more baking. I have a banana bread order along with brownies and cookies to make so send to a friend who is here from Saudi and is visiting family in Chicago. She is wanting to take some goodies back with her to her family.  I am running out of time but this month went by faster that I thought it would.  I got 8 loaves of the bread done yesterday now I just need to do the cookies and brownies.
 I have been looking at Pinterest in the wee hours of the night looking at all the different cookie ideas I can do and WOW had no idea there were so many neat Ideas out there.  I cannot wait to start collecting cookie cutters.  They just do not sell them like they used to anymore.  They are soo hard to find these days.  So guess I will have to do a lot of my ordering off line.
 I am starting to get some ideas on some Cookie Bouquets I want to do for family and friends. I will try and start posting pics to share with who ever might be reading this blog, and if no one is reading it that is fine it will be a little journal of my Journey of cookie decorating lol.

Starting a new Life.

I am starting over in Life these days.  I have not quite decided to change the blog or just leave it as it is.
  Here is what has been happening in my life sense I have last posted.
 I have thought long and hard about my life and my Marriage of 21 years and I was just not happy anymore. I did everything I could to turn my Marriage around on my part but my husband guess did not think it was important.  There are other aspects to why the marriage was having trouble but out of respect for our marriage I will not post it here.  I left him back in April and filed for my divorce last month so it will be finale around November the 10th.  I will need to go to court still and sign all the paper work.  My Marriage has been over in my heart for a long time and I felt it was time to move on. I did discuss this with my 3 older daughters and they agreed with me as well.  They see that I am a lot happier now, I have a new job that I love going to and making some good friends with co-workers.

I had to give up my home and farm not by choice but only because my husband guess did not think it was important to pay on it.  I was kept in the dark with a lot of things in our Marriage that I am slowly finding out, But soon those will be his problems to deal with and not mine.

I have started to bake a lot more and bring the goodies into work and have had people ask me to bake my banana bread for them and I get paid for it too it's great. I am starting to get into cupcake and cookie decorating as well. I have a co worker ask me to make her some pies for the Holidays and some gingerbread men as well.  I am slowly collecting supplies that I need and those I know I will need in the Future. I am finding out that they sure do not sell cookie cutters like they used to in the stores.  Would love it if they had a cookie cutter store in my Fort Worth Dallas Area but I am not aware of any. So for now I have to order what I need from websites.  I cannot wait to embark on my new adventure. I have lots of Family and Friends that are supporting me.  I am sooo much happier than I have been in a long time I guess I never really knew how sad I was till I got out of the situation.

I really need to start posting more on what I am doing even though it just might be me reading this but it will be a nice way to remember what I have become in my new life.

Hugs to me.

Homemade Laundry Soap

If any of you follow the coop Keepers Blog she has made this video on how to make your own Laundry Soap.  I have heard from a lot of people this really works nice.  And in a tip from another poster  (tony300smith) she posted...", I added a cup of lavender hair conditioner per 5 gallons, or what ever kind you prefer, this give the soap a fabric softener to it, plus a nice scent. I get it at the dollar store, or walmart."
 I plan on making this myself.

Redoing the page layout and color scheme

I am in the process of redoing the blogsite. I will be searching the Internet for some new backgrounds and think g of another way to set my blog up so it says more about who I am and what I like to do, and other blogs I like to visit as well. Sense this blogs tends to more about my craft life than the farm I may change the name as well that represents both my craft hobbies and farm life.
Well off to search the world wide web to see what other templets are out there

Sunday Nov 1st

Wow wonder where the month of October went too.  We all do not have much time to get ready for Thanksgiving.  I am going to start my list of things I need from the store now and each time we go to the store just get a little off that list so it does not seem so over whelming when we have to get all the goodies for dinner. Specially the cranberry sauce they always seem to be empty of that by the time I can go and do my shopping.
 I have several pies i am going to make. Pumpkin, chocolate family fav. , apple for my uncle, and found a recipe for a pecan and pumpkin pie just might have to try that one out.

And do some snack things for during the day and a light breakfast.

Today not to much is going on. Melissa is still at her friends house she will be home later today, kelsey is hiding out in her room watching movies, And I am on the computer as always lol.
Did the dishes earlier, vacumed, and just picked up. Still need to go pick up the room a bit but will do that later.  Thinking of doing some more sewing today just not sure what i am going to do as of yet.
  Might try my hand at the pillowcase again.  I had trouble with it last night. You would think that is easy to do and it was, just could not get my Brain  to do what i needed it to do lol.
 But it all wrked out in the end.
This is the pillowcase I made, that is Kelsey holding it up she did not want to get her pic taken. lol
Well off to see what else I can get into lol
