Hi Y'all, what a glorious day it has been. I was watching HSN 24 hour craft show, off & on today. Of course there were so many things that I wanted, especially the new Cricut machine that I can't afford. I wish the show would of been on the end of the month, then maybe I would of had a little money to do the flex pay. Oh well, I guess the good Lord was saying, Dee you really don't need that right now.
In between keeping up with craft day, I started to Fall clean my kitchen. I took down the dusty curtains, washed them to put away & started to wash down the walls. I started in one corner of the room & worked my way around, but didn't get very far. I had to constantly sit down & rest cause of the pain in my back & leg. It is going to take a few days to get everything clean & to polish my cabinets. I wash them down first with wood soap, dry & polish. My cabinets are over 10 years old, but still look like new. I sure wish I was young again when it was so easy to clean my house, now it takes forever, then by the time I get done with the whole house, I'll have to start all over again, lol. One thing that I miss in my kitchen is all the decorative things that I have made. See when we were supposed to move almost 3 years ago, I packed up the things that I didn't need everyday. Boy by the time we finally move, it will be like Christmas when I start unpacking. I even have some new things that I had bought & didn't use yet, cause I was saving them for our new home.
While I was resting I decided to make a homemade apple pie, so I got out my apple peeler, corer & went to work. So tonight we had homemade apple pie for desert, also with homemade whip cream. The house smelled so wonderful with the apples & Cinnamon baking, YUUUMMMM. The birdies even got a treat, cause I put all the peelings out in the yard. I thought I'd post a pic of my apple pie & apple corer for the ladies that never used one. It was one of the best things I ever purchased.
For dinner I made veal stew, that was so warming in the tummy on this cool day.
Then I took some time to make this Fall centerpiece for my kitchen table with a hurricane candle holder in the center. I purchased the flowers & greenery at AC MOORE a week or two ago when they were on sale. The hurricane candle holder I've had for many years, but I really need to buy a new candle that is scented or better yet I'll make my own candle, we'll see about that. Oh I took the pic of the centerpiece on my bed, being that I had all my baking stuff on my table. If you see a little something in the left side of the pic, it's just my little doggy Bruiser, he always has to get into the act, what a ham.
Well it sure was a busy day & I'm exhausted. I hope everybody had a great day & I'm looking forward to your comments.
I hope you have a Wonderful & Blessed evening.
See you back here tomorrow.

    What Don't you do, dear friend.
    You are a crafter of all things.

  2. The pie was very yummy.
    Thanks for the compliment.
    I like to do a variety of things.
    But I don't like to knit, unless I use my knitting machine.
