    A killer kitty, a beautiful quilt and some LARGE hail! Lots of interesting chatter today.

    I am resting after an afternoon of baking bars. I opted to do a Texas Sheet Cake, Lemon Cake Bars and Chocolate Chip Bars. Unfortunately the pan I used for the Lemon bars was not deep enough and ran over my pan. I really wanted to do the recipe shared here, but didn't know if they would want to deal with the powdered sugar. I had frosting to add so think they will be ok once cut up...at least I hope so. They are chilling now so I will cut later to make sure the look ok. If not I will be baking something else later tonight. The kids of course won't mind as it is killing them to have all these sweets in the house and nothing they can eat.

    Does anyone get the Fons and Porter Love of Quilting Magazine? There is a pattern in the May/June 2013 called Emily's Wedding Quilt that I like...I see I can buy just the pattern digitally, but thought I would check to see if anyone is done with their issue first...or maybe we can work out a trade for just the pattern.

    Lots of great chatter everyone. Wonderful photos and recipes too! Wow, we are a diverse group! That hail is scary. It could probably hurt someone very badly.

    Dear DIL is in labor, so will have a new granddaughter any time now. They are naming her Hannah Jean! That makes 15 grandchildren and 1 great-granddaughter, ranging in age from 24 to newborn. Geez, I'm feeling old!

    Oh what joy--Jeanie! They are each precious in their own special way.

    Ouch to the hailstones! It's such a destructive force of nature--glad the greenhouses withstood it, Janie.

    A boxy (instead of squishy) arrived today. Grands will be excited when they see it! Thanks QNS. Lovely stack and whack.

    Thunder looms again. Had a heavy rain just before I got home from Shop Hop trip with friends. Nice day of relaxing and catching up. Now must catch up here at home.

    I got the call yesterday evenin' & we went & took position o' the house at about 5:00pm. When we got home I wanted ta git right online & tell ya but when we got home they had prematurely turned off my Cable, Internet, & Land Line! It took DH callin' 3 or 4 times ta fit it fixed for th'sevenin'. Sigh! He needs ta go online ta git some work done since he has been off. I'm just as glad as he was that we were able ta git on tanight.
    Wow so much went on while I was unable ta git on. We did do alotta packin' again taday.

    Congrats Jeanie (new GD) and Bev (new house)!!

    We just got back from a family swim in the river (well DH and the kids swam, I just watched). They needed cooling off.

    CarrieM ... I'm confused re your icing sugar comment. In my recipe the icing sugar gets mixed into the crust mixture. Or was it something else? I bet everyone is hoping you decide that one set of bars needs to be re-made, so that they can eat them all up!

    JeanieG ... How exciting knowing another Little Jeanie is on her way!!

    DublB ... Time to celebrate that final step of double home ownership!

    OKSGlad ​... Just like Christmas!!!!!!!!

    Good Night, All!

    QE--I copied the recipe but guess I didn't read all the way through the directions!! Oops....after I read the follow-up on what icing sugar was I was thinking it was sprinkled on top (a lot of times the lemon bars I've had had this on top). DH said to just use the lemon bars I made so the kids didn't get any. I am thinking we will bake something tomorrow though...

    Bev--bummer on the movers canceling at the last minute! Not good business when you are all set to go. Be careful on those backs!!

    Oh dublb - do please be careful with your back. You can't afford to be injured when you have to unpack all that stuff you just packed.

    New granddaughter, Hannah Jean, was born at 5:30 p.m. today in Phoenix, AZ. She weighed 8 lb 6 oz, and was 19" long. Mom and baby are just doing great according to my son. Too hot to go to Phoenix, so it will be a few months before we can make the trip!

    Painter was suppose to start today, but was not able to. He called and said he would be here Tuesday. That is okay, because once he is done, we just have to wait for the cabinets, which won't be shipped until August 7th. I'm just so pleased that there has been some progress the past two weeks.

    YEAHHHHHHH Jeanie, congrats on the new granddaughter. I'm so happy all is well ! ! ! !

    QuiltE, sorry but no black/white ones. I just made a short trip just outside the village. We're supposed to have severe thunderstorms today so I'll try again another day.

    Looks like a herd of Red Pied cattle in the field. Groningen is the white headed cow in the first photo. A nice field of corn (maize) in the background! Wish ours looked that good.

    CarrieM ... those lemon cake bars were meant for the family! Or better still maybe the Lemon Squares are? I have never bothered with the sprinkled icing sugar .... too fiddly for more! And they are sweet enough without.

    DublB ... take your time on the move. It's not like you have new owners moving in as you leave! Maybe wait til you find some other movers?

    Anael ... And here I thought you were going to prove to me that Jerseys were in The Netherlands! Oh but some R+Ws will do! Such a scenic ride for you when out on your bike. ITA with OKSGlad ... great looking maize aka here as corn.

    JeanieG ... Congratulations on Hannah Jean's safe arrival!!! New baby quilts on the way? Too bad about the painter, but as you said, so long as he's done for the cabinets.

    MiraB ... Congratulations on such a success! Rest up my dear ... and when you get to your camera ... heads will be allowed!

    Aneal--some more nice scenic pictures (w/cows of course).

    Jeanie--sounds like the painters new timing will help that you aren't waiting too long for cabinets after it dries...YAY!!

    Karen--can't wait to hear how your day went. Hope you got some good sleep.

    QE--the bars are all cut and put into throw-away containers (don't want to to have to worry about getting the pans back to me). I need lemon juice for your Lemon Bars or they *would* be in the oven today. I was sure I had some in the fridge when I was shopping the other day. Guess they will wait until my next trip to town (Monday). Might just sew instead of baking today.

    Dublb, get creative in your seeking help in moving....call a few churches in the area and check with their youth group directors who have kids willing to help and earn money for their groups....call the football coach at the high school and junior high and seek youth help there as well. Teenagers are often looking for 'jobs' for some money and pizzas. Check with the carry out help at the grocery store for friends wanting jobs or feed store. Run a quick ad for help. Save your back and your family's bad backs.

    Anael, great picture of cows and corn.

    Yes, Carrie, get original squares going and try it with orange...should work out fine. I keep orange zest and lemon zest spices on hand to put into my cookies, etc. And orange juice, too, when I can afford to put it on the list.

    I wanna see more MBsssssss.

    QNS--great idea to call nearby churches. Youth groups are often looking ways to volunteer in their community...of course the reward of pizza would probably be good incentive too.

    Bev-not sure how far apart your two houses are, but you could have kids from a church close to your old house help load and then have a group near your new house unload. You could donate a portion of what you would have paid the movers to each group.

    Off to mix up some oj bars, then get kids up to do some school. I started with two younger ones (11 and 13) this week. Oldest (15) goes back to school Aug 21st.

    School is done (only doing about half of their subjects for a couple weeks) and so are the bars. I added more like 3/4c of the OJ since I knew it wasn't going to be as strong as 1/4c lemon juice. They turned out gooey and yummy, just still not as much flavor as I would have liked. Too bad I didn't have some of QNS's orange zest to throw in there. Oh well we all like them and I don't think they will last long.

    Now to wash dishes and head to the clubhouse....

    Little corn starch in the OJ before blending it in might have helped....add corn starch to cold ingredients never hot to thicken things. I use it in making fresh pies, although others use tapioca instead.

    I'm going to try tomorrow. Maybe lemon mixed with OJ and like QNS said, a bit corn starch.
