Montana Trip

  WOW Ive been gone awhile I havent I? Well I did go on that month long trip with my friend Karen and we had a blast! I took my little pound puppy Bella along because she was having such a hard time here at home with Max. She loved it too!
  When we go to the camp ground at Hungry Horse, Montana there was a nice grassy meadow behind our camp and we were able to let Bella and Karens MJ off their leashes and they had a blast, Bella had her nose to the ground the whole time. She discovered grass hoppers and she love chasing them. I loved watching her have so much fun. When we arrived home she was so let down she was sad for a few days. Now she is back to her old self.
  Terry showed up on the 10th day of trip.We had rain the whole time till he arrived and then there was sun shine all day long after he showed up. He had a blast too. We went up to Glacier National Park and we hiked about 1 Terry says 2 miles on the Trail of Cedars. It was so pretty. I did take lots of pics but my camera does not work right now to transfer my pics to computer. When I get my new computer I will fix all that pic posting for sure.
  Ive started with the Christmas Lapghans this year Karen and I have over 35 lapghans made so far. I was hoping for 70 but I think we will make around 40 for sure. I need to start my booty making for my mom and sis oh yea son n law wants some too. I was thinking I could make socks but I will try Ive never made them for others so I dont know what size to make them all in. Ive just always made them to fit me. But I am taking knitting lessons so maybe next year I can have them all made for them all.
  OK Ive been jabbering now for a while. I was over at for so much needed recipe go check it out if you want I know she loves visitors.
  Ok Im out of here have a blessed week my friends:) Tata for now....

Shepards pie

Ok I tried for the second time to make Shepards pie. My son tells me Im not using a correct dish to cook it in. I used a cassarole dish about 3 inches tall and the recipe as follows.
   My Shepards Pie
1 pound hamburger
1 onion
can of peas, carrots, corn and beans
4 or so cups mashed potato

   cook the meat with chopped onion. layer in dish meat first them veggies one at a time then the mashed potatoes on top.
  Bake at 350 f for about 30 to 40 minutes.

Is there a better recipe out there? I had alot of juice and my son says I should of used a shallow pie dish and to really drain the veggies (which I thought I did, Karen says I should use frozen veggies not canned because of the water content) What do you all think? Ill take any suggestions you can give me.

  Ok dont tell Izabella but Im makiing her the Abby doll from NCIS for her birthday this year so I need to get started right now because her birthday is September 12th. I dont have lots of money this year so I thought I would buy her clothes and make her a doll. She loves dolls and she has been begging me to make the Abby doll. OK Its out little secret if I can I will find my camera and see it I can upload a pic when I get done.
Tell me friends what have you all been doing ? I go to your blogs and on Facebook and keep track of you as well as I can. Do you have any new sites for me to check out you know how I love me some crochet sites. Ok Ill chat with you again really soon if not sooner heehee

I know I lnow Ive been gone awhile

Ive been busy with my life and God has been busy with me too! I hope you all have been great this summer. Its been way hot here in Vegas. But from what I hear its hot hot hot all over this country.
  Ive been busy with crochet as always but Im getting a little down but I know I can make it through. We have a little over 20 lapghans and I was hoping for at least 50 or 60 this year but I will continue on till we have to stop.
  Im trying to plan for my christmas list but I dont know if I will crochet gifts this year. I was thinking of just doing myself a new afghan this year instead of making stuff for everyone. Thinking of taking a little break I think. What do you all think ? Should I take this year off?
  Ive been baking lots of cookies and making new and exciting dinners I hope. If you have any recipes for easy and quick dinners send them my way Ill try them all.
  Ok my friends if you think of me while your saying your prayers please pray that I grow in Gods word and stay in His word.
