Also I made 3 home made fruit cakes for Granny M yesterday. College Girl helped out ever so much even though she hates fruit cake. But it made Granny M happy and that is what counts the most. First time I have ever done this so I fudged and did it the way I thought would work out. And it did....nice, light, fruit cakes that are not overly sweet. Perfect for what I was wanting to do. Next I will be making mince meat cookies for her. I want to wrap them up in my new Hen House napkin. I love the bright red and cream colors of it. Hopefully I can get the pot holders to match real soon. But at the same time they have lots of patterns and colors so may be doing a mix and match set instead. How about you? Do you like things to be all the same? Or jumbled up in a bright array of colors?
Since I have been home, College Girl has been really helping me out as I get everything in order again. So to thank her for the hard work I made her a special bath the other night. I took my mom's day rose and sprinkled the petals in a warm bath with scented oil in it. Added in my Nudo Honey & Lavender handmade soap for that extra bit of indulgence. Topped it all off with a glass of white wine and 3 Nudo handmade Italian olive oil chocolates in lemon, orange and pepper. These came from my Mama Mia Gift set. I think she was in heaven. I know she relaxed and looked all the better when she came out of her soak. Hopefully I will soon be able to make this amazing Mandarin breakfast cake using my fantastic olive oil from Nudo. Check it out. And if you can convert the measurements for me then let me know!
Well my laundry is beeping at me. Thank goodness I was able to get my latest batch of homemade laundry soap made this morning. I still need to get outside and mow the yard too. Gosh is a housewife's work ever done? Thinking about dinner too. Humm, what to fix? Any ideas? Maybe some orange chicken over brown rice...that is an idea.
Thanks so to Nudo and Hen House for sharing with me. I am loving my items as they make the days seem nicer. You know what I mean. Just those extra lil bits that make your day a lil richer in spirit. Wonder if I should use that bright napkin as a kerchief and dance to the Mama Mia soundtrack this afternoon. Now that is the way to spend your time.....for we all know the is always time to DANCE!
