I have nothing new to share in the kitchen today.  I did cook yesterday, but time got away from me!   I also started working on some masks for us.  Got to talk to each my oldest son and oldest daughter.  Clapped for the Carers at 8 PM until my hands got sore.  Its a very emotional time, this Clapping for the Carers. I always cry.  With gratitude I suppose in large, but there is also something else there  . . .  a feeling and emotion that I have never felt before.  Its like a mix of joy, fear, hope, gratitude all rolled into one. 

Have a great Friday. Hope your day is filled with lots of the things you love.  Don't forget!

  4. I loved looking at all the cute ideas. Some of them are one I know my daughter and grandchildren would enjoy. I really liked the Pom Pom Shoes. I really like shoes and it is almost time for summer ones. Also, I like cloth covered books, I have a couple. I especially like cloth covered notebooks.
    My mother was really good at doing mod podge. I didn't get that creative gene. Anyway, I liked all the art and wish I had that talent too.
    I can see you have a beautiful day. I loved the photo of it.
    Sending hugs your way!
