We started off with a breakfast of bacon, eggs and Homey Oatmeal Scones, with dried cranberries and raisins! Baked in my cast iron skillet in the wood stove oven..
Topped with real butter and Pennsylvania honey! (the best of course ;)
Then it was out to cut another pick-up load of wood for hubby while I cleaned and puttered in the house. He cuts and splits the wood ...
and it is my job to stack, which I just love. Its great exercise!
Meanwhile in the early afternoon, a package was delivered to the door.... It had gloves and tee-shirts and cookies for hubby, a toy and treats for Izzy, and for me a teapot cozy knitted by my daughter Tina, to fit my Brown Betty tea-pot; along with an infuser that sits in the teapot, and some natural organic Lavender and Chamomile loose-leaf tea, and Stevia from Restoration Herbs. I made some and sipped it all afternoon Sunday! You can click on the photo and bring up the detail on the cozy. See the buttons in the back where it buttons under the handle? Didn't she do a fantastic job??
Since I have pretty much goofed off all day, after goofing off yesterday because my internet was down, I decided to cook, really cook for hubby. We had been eating last week's meatloaf and venison vegetable soup for several days. He came in last night and looked at the soup .... again .... and said with a smile, "Oh, something new I see!" Yah, bread and peanut butter with it!
So I decided to apply myself today by making Scalloped Potatoes and Baked Beans and a nice coleslaw with pineapple,
(I didn't think about pictures until supper was in the oven)
and bake a Country Apple Pie with Oatmeal crust .......
(picture taken before I baked the pie) It is still in the oven. I am not very organized :)
I was working on my "Sunflowers" oil painting this morning, that I had started months ago and never gotten back to. I now have about 7 hrs in it so far. Art work needs to be done in the day time when the light is good ........ I am supposed to be working , you know , at a real job, but things are very slow right now.
Besides, everyone needs a "Me" day once in a while. Don't you agree??
