What a most beautiful thankful time of it three sisters reminiscing around the table eating pumpkin pie making fun of each others past follies and giving our husbands a perfect opportunity to add a few of their own stories! What a fun day we had!

Creating & Crafting

I started making labels for homemade jam & banana bread now I am making dish towels and already dreaming up my next project. I found the how to at: http://www.citrasolv.com/

Cooking Hubbies Favorite Treat Tulumba!

Tulumba is a Balkan & Turkish sweet treat of fried dough soaked in a sweet syrup. I used the recipe from "miss igs" blog they came out ok for my first attempt I am going to try making them again and see if they come out a little better "Binnur Turlish Cook Book" blog has another recipe a bit different, less eggs, I will try also. I added a teaspoon of Rose Water to the syrup, my favorite Persian Restaurant "Ali Baba" serves them that way.

Fibro Fit Again!

ICK I have been having one of my fibro fits no fun at all,  I am sort of better now  getting back into the swing of things. We had a nice hard rain on Sunday which we really needed so it was a good day to stay home and paint in my PJs. I worked on two paintings so I don't feel so bad about staying in with my pain. I really hate this disease things could be so much worse but this is just an on going hit after hit.
And I never know when I am going to be knocked off my feet with it. I can see where a person might develop into a grouch I have to fight against it sometimes. Typically I keep my attitude in check or try anyway.
Now I am going to make my husbands favorite dessert Tulumba like mum used to make. I found a recipe on a miss igs blogsite with lots of pictures that gave me the push I needed to try it. I'll let you know how it went. Unless I forget!
Here is my latest painting "Rain"
