T.G.I.F.!!! it is gorgeous outside already..It certainly feels like spring here in Washington State...yesterday was stunning...I mowed the lawn the 2nd time this year..I can't believe that we are doing it this early in the year..but we have had some pretty gorgeous days here this year already..the dandilions are in full force and some are already going to seed..its going to be bad this year I can just tell..so I will need to be on top of my game..I took 3 of my dolls to a garden store yesterday in hopes of selling them..and she is only takin 10% commission!! I am so excited...can't hurt..I am also going to get my etsy account up and running..might do a couple of things on ebay too..got get my stuff sold as it is accumulating here...does give me a jump start on the gift show seasons ahead..but I would rather be selling all year long...Last night in the above Photo you will see what we had for dinner..I got this recipe off of Lidia's Italy and thought I would give it a shot..the dumplings were not on her site so I re-watched it and took notes..and they worked out puurrffectly..it is called Chicken in beer..it also had apple cider, cinnamon stick, whole cloves, onions, parsnips, and carrots..oh and chicken broth and salt..pretty easy...the dumplings had speck, onions, bread, milk, flour and parmasean cheese...you boil them till they float and then cook them in a bit of butter with the broth from the chicken..they would also be good in spaghetti or just a marina sauce...it was all really tasty..:)
Tomorrow I am doing a stampin up party and it is "Celebrations" month till the end of the month...if you order $50.00 in stamps you get a free stamp set..not bad..just go to the site and check it out..so if any one wants to order to help out my party...just let me know..I know she can have them shipped directly to you..
And now for the baby portion of our show..My little sister is in the hospital as we speak being induced to have her baby boy..her blood pressure was getting a bit high so they are inducing her today...she is only one week away from her due date and she is excited..she has not been feeling well these past couple of months so this is good..she is giving me a call first thing..I am so excited..so my cell phone will be with me all day today..:) they don't have a name yet..so will have to wait and see...
