I knowwwww Its been awhile since I have posted. Would love to offer an exscuse but it seems like life just gets in the way and before you know it time is slipping by.

I just had to tell you about where I have been for the last half an hour. Someone on one of my groups posted a site that was all about lefsa. Well being Norwegion i grew up on the stuff and it was such fun to go look it over. They of course have all kinds of different tools to make it but back then my mother made it with nothing more then a ricer and a cast iron frying pan" or when we were at the lake she would make it up on one of those old fashioned wood stoves that you cook on. It brought back lots of memories. For the most part" I loved my norwegion food" with the exception of lutefisk. I was never really fond of the stuff and have not eaten it since I was a kid and had to eat it. soooooooooo many memories. Just in case there are any norwegions out there that would love to go see this site.

Lets see what else has been going on. Well we have finally gotten through with most of the remodeling. the walls are painted, the floors have been layed and the carpet is down. We have gotten rid of our dinning room table and chairs and tomorrow we are going to go look for cupboards and hubby is going to create a kitchen island with lots of storage. We need storage soooooo badly. I love to cook and I love to bake so I seem to be forever buying utincils and new pans ect. with no place to put them. Along with the cooking ware there is the grocery issue. Both hubby and I grew up where you always had a full pantry. My mother used to can veggies, deer meat ect. so we always knew that no matter what else happened we sure wouldn't starve. I am the same way except for the canning. Between working ect. I just don't seem to have the time but I still enjoy watching the sales and keeping a full pantry. So all of this extra storage is going to make me a very happy camper.

Can you believe that we are half way through november alreadyyyyyyy this is scary. I need to get busy and get all of my gifts bought so that I can send off the ones that need to be there in time for christmas. I have not been in the mood to do any sewing lately for some odd reason. I seem to go through these moods at least once a year. I just found the cutest bag pattern today that might get my interest renewed again. I did get some wood carving knives from my hubby for my birthday because I would like to try some carving It is called chip carving and I think that I am going to enjoy learing how to do it. I have also been thinking about knitting again. The problem is that I just have to be in the right frame of mind and lately I haven't been able to concentrate on any one thing.
I did find this little doll for my youngest granddaughter. I fell in love with it because of the wings. It reminded me of her halloween costume. I hope she likes it as much as I did" I will send her some baby doll quilts too.
Well I can't think of anything else to report right now" the other day when I thought about posting I had all kinds of things to write about but have lost most of them now. Wellllllllll what do you expect after alllllllllllll I did just turn 60!!! Have a great day!
