Aimless Saturday

I am trying to wrap up a few projects…just want to get some things done around here!  I am working on this chair…

I got this in the mail today…Rachel from Lines across my face had a Shabby Apple giveaway for this sweet necklace and I won!

It’s very pretty and I love the packaging!

This past week I made these…

And they were soooo good, OK, maybe not as good as my mom’s but close!  And I used the crockpot!

I fried chicken and it was not as good as mom’s but it was OK!  I cooked it too long, so it was a bit tough, but it was very nicely browned.  While I cooked it I was thinking about Minnie in The Help, Miss Minnie don’t burn no chicken!

I watched the sun come up Saturday over new snow….

Rachel loves the snow…

but running around in it wears this pooch out.  Her birthday is this month…she is now 12 years!  Usually we have a birthday party for her.  She loves cupcakes!

Ellen,
What do you call 'these'? Are they dumplings? They look suspiciously like something my family makes, but with a very funny name.
