DH's parents were in town this weekend and I had been reading The Pioneer Woman's blog and just had to try her Braised Beef Short Ribs. They were wonderful. I didn't have any wine so just used broth. I would like to try it with wine, too. We will be making this again and again.

No snow for us

Nope and I'm not sorry at all. LOL I am so ready for spring. We normally have winters with on again off again cold. This year has been pretty much consistant. Cold! Today was pretty nice, though. I was at quilt club. I cooked lunch for everybody. Spaghetti, garlic bread, salad, and chocolate pudding. We are quilting the purple 4 patch stacked posies that I made for Mickey. She wanted it bigger and added borders and marked it very nicely with hand quilting stencils. She did a wonderful job. I will try to find a picture and post it.

I have been piecing more string blocks and crumb blocks with pieces trimmed from the strings. I work on them an hour every morning and then in the evenings sometimes. These are for C.A.S.A.  I will post pictures soon. Sorry, I am busy right now.

The baby is doing great. She is gaining weight.

Checking In

I have guild meeting this morning. I have been machine quilting lately so I'm busy with that. We went Monday night to visit DS#2 and fanmily. Read that--hold the baby. We took pork chops cooked in the slow cooker and enjoyed some family time. We hope to repeat this process over the weekend. LOL

We still had some patches of snow in the shade and anywhere the kids built big snowmen yesterday. But with the warm weather we have had it won't stick around.  We are forecast for more snow on Tuesday. Can you believe it?

Gotta go get ready for the meeting.
Blessings everyone,

More Snow!

I measured with my trusty Omnigrid Fons & Porter ruler. It read ten iches in the front yard and 10.5 in the back yard. The news is saying that they got 12 inches in the city.  We've lost some limbs in our pine trees due to the weight of the snow.

If you haven't visited in a few days be sure and scroll down to the post about our new ARRIVAL.

Worst Snowstorm in 30 years

Yes, that is what the news people are saying. I let the dogs out at 6am and the grass was covered with snow. Then at 8am I looked out and it was really coming down and it has snowed all day without stopping. 9 inches!

Ya'll be sure and check the post below for our big news! Oh, did you realize that DGD Paisley was born on 2-10-2010? Pretty cool, huh? Her brother has 7-7-07 for his birthdate.

DGD Paisley was born today! Mother and baby are fine. She weighed 6 lbs. 8oz. and came on the 36th week. She is just perfect.

Thank you for all your prayers for our family.
