Just Saturday

We are having our kids and grand kids over tomorrow for dinner and a nice day of  visiting and the kids hunting Easter eggs. We are going to BBQ. I have all of the ingredients out on the counter so I can start getting my food together. We have a water purifier under the sink. It broke. The water is turned off. We have to buy a new one and Ron will have to install it. I am becalmed. I am dead in the water.

I don't know why, but it seems like before every holiday and I am supposed to be fixing food, we have some water issue. I know it will all work out and we of course won't starve. I am fixing this cake called a Strawberry Sheet cake. I can't wait to fix that. I try to fix things that my grand kids like. One thing that I love about them is they are not like their parents were growing up, they were picky eaters. Our grands are not. They will eat anything. That makes cooking so much fun.

We have blueberries. I took the picture before I ate the three that were ripe. They were nice. I wish I had about 10 times more blueberries.

I worked on some more goodies in my sewing box. I have one more thing to finish then I can put this thing away. I have had so much fun making it.

I have enjoyed sewing like this again. Ron and I have been listening to a Librivox recording of Treasure Island. I sew and he makes trees. I will put a link to his Etsy store soon. My blog has gone wonky and I had to jump through hoops to write this post. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to even find my dashboard. All of the links are gone.

Have a lovely Easter.

"He isn't here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying."

  1. Cooking without water...that ought to be a challenge! I cooked most of my dinner yesterday because I knew CW was coming for the weekend. It is a dreary day here...rainy and overcast. All the egg hunts were cancelled.Hoping it is prettier tomorrow so we can at least hide them here at the house. There will be 10 here for lunch tomorrow. Hope you enjoy your family!!

  2. i hope your water issue will be resolved soon so you can get back on track. :) and i know you will enjoy time with family no matter. :)

  3. Have a beautiful and blessed weekend. Catherine xo

  4. We have water issues too, only it's about flooding but we are still OK.We have water in the basement and we're pumping.

    It will be so nice having the family together to hunt for Easter egg. I used to hide eggs everywhere and I would fine some long after Easter.

    I hope that your water will be hooked up in time to prepare your food.
    Happy Easter.

  5. He is Risen indeed! Praise Him!
    Wishing you every Easter blessing in Him!
    Have a wonderful day with your family.

  6. Happy Easter to you and your family!

  7. What a great day of fun you will have tomorrow, Kim! Easter blessings to you and your family! xo Nellie

  8. Happy Easter Kim to you and your family! Strawberry sheet cake sounds wonderful!

  9. Happy Easter! You do always seem to have holiday water issues.

  10. I hope you get your water problem fixed...I know you will have a very lovely day either way. Family togetherness is always a blessing. xo

  11. Happy Easter, Kim! Have a lovely meal, a lovely gathering!
    (BIG HUG!)

  12. Oh dear, hope the water got fixed! I remember my 22nd birthday, I hosted a party in my little home in Bali and we were going to cook on my neighbour's gas ring but the gas canister ran out and we couldn't get a new one, then we tried to cook on my little 1 ring electric hob and then we had a electric power cut (and had to sit by candle)- finally we resorted to building a fire in the garden to cook on! It was quite funny.
    That's great your grandkids are not fussy. My husband apparently was extraordinarily fussy as a child and for one year, only ate macaroni cheese but luckily nowadays, he eats anything and loves his veg! x

  13. I treasure my sewing box you made. I keep it the top draw of my night stand.


Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
Think of this as coming onto my porch and having
a visit.
