That time of year……for chicken soup and some baking



Everyone that I talk to has had some sort of cold or flu. It’s that time of year. We have been taking Airborne and keeping cold medicine handy. Well the kids and grandkids have all had something lately. Our daughter had it bad yesterday, so we took the kids for the day so she could rest. We  also have and elderly couple in our church, and the wife has dementia and we have been helping him out by doing weekly meals. This was our week, so we made a big batch of chicken rice soup, biscuits and cranberry bread. We brought the meal to them and I also sent some home with the kiddos to my daughter.

The chicken soup is pretty easy~ I will share my recipe next time.


We had lots of fun times with the kiddos. Layla and I did a little sewing. We made a pink heart for her and a little doll dress for her Barbie.

Isaiah went out to the workshop with Papa and got to build with some wood scraps and tools.( Papa is busy working on some new projects for me. )They played hard, but didn’t want to rest. Surprise!

While we were sewing we made a few more hearts to put around the house. A few here in my wall box.

And we tucked one in the arms of my favorite snowman.


I have been working on a few new items for spring. Not quite finished yet.  A little decorating for President’s day as well. Constant change. New pics next time. What have you all been up too?? 


I will leave you with a quote from the assistant principal at my children's High School. Every morning they would here this~
