Guess I've been posting a lot lately. No need for you to read or comment... just finding it necessary to get it all down these days.
I figured out how to add pages (thanks to Apache Dug's tutoring post). So I added a poetry page first as I haven't decided what stories to put out there yet. But I will probably start with a few of my children's stories I wrote for the grandkids. And I am wondering if there's a way to put the 'pages' across the screen rather than in the right column... (Dug?)
These last few days have been busy working on the sequel, playing Animal Crossing with my granddaughter, baking dark chocolate brownies with miniature Reese's peanut butter cups inside, playing Wordle, and putting together cookbooks for my kids who constantly call and ask me for recipes.
So I finally went to Office Depot and bought several binders and plastic sleeves. Printed out a good number of the recipes that they always ask for... inserted them in the binders and will mail them next week. I also left empty plastic sleeves so they could add other recipes to it. While doing this, I also cleaned out my own recipe book... throwing out ones that we didn't use and retyping some of the old ones.
DH spent yesterday making stuffed peppers with ground meat, seasoning, rice, and pecans. We had some for supper last night and froze the rest. We did have some of the stuffing part left over... so I made some beef pasties with them. I just added some cheddar cheese and put them into little pie shells. Here's a pic.

And my sister-in-law just texted us about the Wordle word for Saturday. She said that her husband got it in 3 and she never got it. Asked what we thought of it. I told her that DH got it in 4, but it took me 6.... and it wasn't a woman's word. I've probably never used the word 'epoxy' in my life. But that's how it goes...
And I now have the fabric for the border and backing for my jungle quilt. So... I may start on that next week.
And one other thing.... I'm writing this post in a very small text because for whatever reason blogger won't let me get past a certain point on the page. When I get there, if I'm writing in large text, I can no longer enter more text??? So I go in and change the text to small and continue on. Guess it's fine as I can always just make it larger later before I post, but it's a bit strange.
Lastly here are a few pics the kids have sent me recently:

That's it for today. I was watching Face the Nation earlier... but there's only so much Putin I can take... so to save my peace of mind, I turned it off. Wishing you all a quiet peaceful Sunday. Thanks for dropping by.
