My Weekend

A new pillow sham that I picked up on Saturday for $2.99.
It is reversible and ties up at the end.
Brand name too, Liz Claiborne.

Here I am beginning to make my potato soup.
I am cooking up chopped pancetta & onion.

Here I have added creamer potatoes (about 4 cups chopped)
2 cups of water, 2 cups of milk, salt, garlic and 2 teaspoons of chicken bouillon.

Here is the finished product half eaten.
When the potatoes are tender it is ready to be pureed
with a hand blender. Then 1 cup of half & half is added.
It is then ready to serve.

Here are my mashed potato biscuits again.
This time made with a little whole wheat flour.
Brandon requested that I make them again.

Lady Bird spent time outside this weekend. I brought her cage outside and opened the door. She flew out and sat in our plum tree. She flies around the tree visiting various branches and then returns to me or her cage. Today she had to show me how she likes to eat now. She scolded me for not doing it right. She wants to eat on her own, so I set the food down and she tilts her head to look at it. Then she picks it up herself and sort of mashes it up with her beak. Her beak has grown and has a nice point on it so she can peck at seeds. She is trying to get the hang of eating seeds, but isn't quite there yet.

Since I am not taking any hormones I am having menopausal symptoms, which is not the greatest. I feel irritable most days and I enjoy time alone. I think I may be feeling a little depressed due to lack of hormones. Today hubby took me out shopping and told me to pick out what I wanted at the store. What a blessing that was, God is so good to me!
