last Saturday craft show

 Here 's my friend Nicki. She is a real crafter and wood artist. She made these incredible wooden caddies. She sat there and was making rag rugs. I'm inspired to make one now!!
 This is Deb Parsons' booth. She makes all this lovely jewelry and scarves. I bought myself a poncho that she had made. Love it!
 Another crafter, so cute!
 Mark and his signs.
Chris and her sewn items. She also knits hats for American Girls dolls! Blessings!

Saturday- craft day

Saturday is the annual craft sale day for me. For about 8 years I make my Mom's famous fudge to sell at the American Legion sale. I thought about quitting this after last year, but decided to do one more year. I'll see what happens this year, sales were okay, but the amount of people coming through was down. This is time consuming for me. Not complaining just telling you the way it is. So, if you are out and about, come see us at the legion hall. Here is a snap shot of the fudge. Blessings!!

So now, I'm back with a partial plan! More recipes and more interesting things to talk about with you! We are on a plan to change our eating life style(again), because I need to lose some weight and Gordon needs to lower his cholesterol. If you have any ideas let us know! We are eating more salads and planning more soups/chili meals, but this can get tiring! We also make a few smoothies every week. So here is our favorite smoothie recipe: 2 bananas, 1 cup of frozen fruit( strawberries or blueberries), 1 cup of almond milk, 1 cup of Greek yogurt ( Greek Gods is our favorite), ice cubes, some times spinach or kale if I have it on hand, 2 scoops of protein powder. Blend till smooth or less lumps. Blessings!!!!
