I also bought the pedal pushers die and stamp set from Papertrey. I have already lost the quotes stamps, not even tried them out. So pissed off. Tripper must be running a cat group. I made a couple of cards that I gave to people. This is a first venture in that direction. I want to make a bunch that I can just get to and send instead of rushing around every time an occasion calls for a card. Things like get well and a note for various things like thank you. That appears to be a great way to learn to stamp.
A friend called me to tell me that she just watched a program about a hoarder who bought scrapbook supplies and went into debt. She is buried under mountains of cute but no made scrapbooks.
This is Tripper, our sweet, now old, baby who rushed off into the bathroom on hearing Momma Cardinal hit the window. The nut case bird is attacking her own reflection.
The past week we have had. Heavy rain. The aquifer is -12 feet above normal and the temperature is around 86 and it is 80 inside. Today we made marmalade as a friend and neighbor, who lives in Houston and is a gardener, Carol, gave us a bag of grapefruit from her garden and some lemons (see previous post about lemon bars and lemon meringue pie made by Kay with some of the lemons)so here is the results of our labors. The jar with the label is half full. To be eaten soon!
This is the shot from across the kitchen catches the light from the windows above the cabinets. It was the first time making it on the induction top and we were unable to use the enamel canning pot for making as they do not have stainless bottoms. We used the pasta pot to process the jars and it worked OK. They are beginning to make more Induction pots. To Europeans it must seem strange as they have had induction for years. now natural gas is expensive so induction is a great alternative to gas and for us much better than propane.
Well time to dig out the left overs but first here is a toast to you Julie, the liquid sort so no marmalade.
