Just another day.

Well today has been an interesting day. All the chicks are starting to let their creative juices flow!
The oldest chickadee "needed" to make brownies. I suggested that she make them using muffin cups. Reason #1- Less mess to clean up. Reason#2 - MOTHER HEN WOULDN'T BE AS TEMPTED TO OVER INDULGE IN THE DELECTABLE LITTLE TREATS! Everyone would know if I sneak some and I'm trying to be honest and good. Boy, do they smell good! I think they are calling me? NO, no ,no I shall not succumb to their chocolaty goodness.

I wish I had thought of it sooner... The sewing room was all a buzz with creativity this morning. 3 chicks sewing away at once! But here's a pic of chick #3 ( I wish I had one when it looked like I was running a mini sweat shop!). Chick #2 made a pattern and the other chick followed it. Now I'm starting to hear that they "need" better machines like the oldest chickadee. Hmmmmmmmmm.By the way, we found bags of scrap fabric at the thrift stores for 50 cents to a dollar. Perfect for these projects.

Doesn't the horse and owner look well pleased? I'm a happy mother hen and Superman thought it was wonderful!

Well, I'm off to finish up the laundry. I hope to post my simple laundry savings later this week.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path. Amen. I've had these words going through my head most of the afternoon.....

I read in a Paula Deen cookbook to pour brownie batter (use the cake like recipe) in the muffin cup and stick a mini Peanut Butter cup in the center of the batter. Bake for 20 min. It is soooo good. Love your site! Love the Frumpy Prom. Hilarious.
