Real or not real

It was cold and wind was blowing felt like it could snow any time.I really felt liked making a homemade pie.Instead of the apples from a can and crust you just roll out from the frig.So hubby and I went to the fruit market and bought some apples.He helped peel and core while I made the pie dough.Hate to say how long it's been since I did this, but it's been at least 30 years.Wow that sounds awful can't believe how fast time has gone by.I've also make the salt dough pies and they looked good enough to eat.Can you tell the difference from the pics?Yes I know you can.The fakes look better lol.I forgot to brush the tops so they would brown,but they sure did taste good.
Today I am going to do some sewing.I cut out a snowman or woman yesterday.It's sewed up and ready for stuffing .Thats when it will start speaking to me what it wants to be.I'll post some pics when I know more.
Have a great day...............Diane

Pity party is over

I am so sorry I made that last post.I tried to delete it but did'nt know how.I have so much to be thankful for and hate when I get in those horrible moods.Why is it so hard to do the things you know will help.For me it's getting my bible out and just start reading or just taking the time to spend a few mins talking to the Lord.
I had my birthday on the 25th.I have to take pics of my present from my son and hubby.Its one of the faux fireplaces.I love it.I wanted one for years but would'nt get one.With my hubbys health we can't have a real one any more so this works fine for us.It looks so real unbelieveable.The kids got me things for me and for my house.They know I love candles needless to say I got those a light up makeup mirror(eyes aren't what they use to be lol),and other things I was really surprised.I am so blessed to have such thoughtfull children and grands also a couple greats lol.
I got all my rooms cleaned and that was such a worry.It's something how things can work on your mind and you don't even realize it.Every time I thought of doing something I really wanted to do like dolls or crafts.First thing popped in my mind was these rooms I really needed to take care of.My bedroom, our sons ,and my doll room.I really did'nt finish them since we moved in 1 yr ago.Well they are done and what a relief feels like a ton off my shoulders.
I don't have pics this time but will post some in my next post.Have a great day and blessing to each of you...................((HUGS))
