Here's a pic of our little "Toodles" with her Papa.
She's such a good baby. Very content. What a blessing for her parents!
Her mama is not well though. She just found out she has walking pneumonia and she's exhausted.
You'll find me in the kitchen these days, cranking out the chicken & dumpling soup and other meals to share with our neighbors.
Miss Peach is here lots more too.
We're trying to give Mama plenty of quiet rest time.
I finished this fun apron for a friend.
It's a Susan Branch pattern that DIL loaned me from one of her sewing books.
She made me an apron similar to it for Christmas and I love it!
You can see it peeking out in the picture below.
I stitched up this child-sized apron for HP using a dish towel and some red polka dot ribbon for the ties. She and I are messy cooks and we had a big cooking day here today. Miss Peach always wants to help me cook so we made heart-shaped cheddar crackers from this recipe, and then we made cheesy scalloped potatoes. She likes to put the potato slices in the dish and sprinkle on the salt and pepper.
I'm so glad she likes to work with me in the kitchen.
She even does dishes!
(plays in the dish water mostly)
We had warm temperatures yesterday and a little rain here overnight. The snow is greatly melted and now a sheet of ice covers the ground. It makes simple walking a very difficult task. I should have strapped on my ice skates when I went to the chicken coop tonight. I could skate anywhere I wanted to go! HP wanted to make snow angels, but we couldn't. The snow that remains is hard as a rock and then there is the ice. Not good ingredients for snow angels. I did pull her around on the sled though.
