Before I got cleaned up I decided to take a break and go outside and just walk around for awhile and breath some fresh air. Also, I bought a pair of brand new rubber boots and I just had to break them in. I had an old pair and the last time I went out I came in with one very wet foot. Obviously, I had no idea they were split out. With Spring coming and "April Showers" as well, I had to have some decent boots. I spend a great deal of time outside and I've got to be prepared. Sometimes when it's raining (with no lightning) I go outside with my umbrella and walk around. That probably sounds dumb but I love Spring rains. There's something so cleansing in them. Of course, there are always the trips out to feed the animals in the rain as well. So, when I went to Rural King yesterday I picked up a new pair. They are polka dot and look perfectly hideous. I just love them!
When my husband got home we drove into town and got our tax returns signed and sent off to the IRS. Always glad to have that completed.
We're having some friends over for dessert and coffee either Saturday or Sunday. I thought I'd make a couple pies. I've decided on Custard and Apple Pie. Custard is good as a dessert or as a breakfast dish because it's mostly milk and eggs. So if there's any left over it will make a nice breakfast for us. The Apple Pie will please those with a sweet tooth. Both pies go well with coffee or hot tea. Tonight I'm heading into the kitchen to make the pie dough, I'll wrap the dough up in 2 separate disks and put them in the frig and make the pies in the morning. I have fallen hard for this pie dough recipe. Everyone just loves the pie dough. Considering I am not a big dessert person - to have someone tell me how good the pie dough is, is quite a compliment except that, of course, it's not my recipe. Check out my Recipe Page and I'll see that you get the opportunity to try it yourself!!!
Gosh, I really feel badly that I haven't a whole lot to say to you today. It's a subtle reminder that my life is pretty tame. You know something though - I wouldn't have it any other way!!
