|Making the Pie Crust.|
I knew it was going to be a good day last night when I came to bed and my 14 year old wanted to snuggle with me. THIS NEVER HAPPENS!
I get a lot of eye roller and back talking all the while I am wishing he was 4 years old again thinking I am the greatest thing.
"Just a couple more minutes I am cuddling with mom..." Austin replied to his dad half sleeping. I gave that look to Andy that reads "Please...."
He slept in our bed till almost midnight. I was in hog heaven.
|Putting the pie in!|
9AM Dentist apt for Austin.
10:30 AM over Maw Maws to bake.
We had a lot of fun. My husbands favorite pie is Buttermilk Pie. This recipe has been his Maw Maws. I have learned how to make it exept I can not make the crust as well as her. Today we made the crust and 2 pies. Even though I made the crust SHE still made it so easy walking me through it.
The wind was brutal out there. The temps were frigid. The air was crisp almost taking my breath away. Within minutes my eyes began to tear up from the chilly air. It was not to long after that that I was looking through icicles on my eyelashes.
I was feeling good. I got a new goody in the mail today!!! I was running in my HOKAS that Kristy gave me. Even though I wear a size 8 in every running shoe I have owned, hers are just bit to big. I can tighten the laces and wear thicker socks to make them work. But my foot is not real snug in them.
I had beem emailing "Chris" about how I really liked his shoes. He SENT me a brand new pair of MY size HOKAS!
They are a very different shoe. I will give a review of them tomorrow. I am stoked to get to try them out. Thank YOU CHRIS for your Generosity!
