    I survived the church dinner. We had 102 attend and lots of dishes were empty, so I am thinking they all enjoyed it. My body is is feeling it today that is for sure. But, I survived another year and I don't have anything for a few months at church to do. I am now planningon a series of End of Life Preparedness for our members. We have a senior, senior congregation and I believe they will benefit from it. It will be over several months, directly after lunch I think on a Sunday once a month.

    On another note I am waiting on approval from my insurance to have a pain pump put in for my back. We did the trial run Friday and I actually felt awesome! I can't wait for it. It will be done as an outpatient surgery. They will take out the neurostimulator that isn't doing any good and put this in. Doctor said it will be done before the end of the year. Looks like another Christmas I have surgery for my present. This one should be well worth the pain though.

    The Sweet Potato Rings are not only yummy, but pretty too when they are all browned. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
    Happy Quilting!

    Mailed my package out to my Sp today, should be there by Thursday the post office said.
    Hmm...My Sp is 1,803 miles from me, depending on which route I took 25 to 27 hours (knowing me tho, about 3 days, I like to stop and look lol)

    I mailed my package today:
    Secret Pal: you live over 2,000 miles west of me.
    we both live in towns along big rivers.
    your town is at a more northern latitude, but my town is colder!

    SP I mailed your package today it is expected to be delivered on Thursday the 16th.
    here is some hints:
    incorporated as a town in 1878 and as a city in 1968/ residents of your state are obsessed with calling it "America in Miniature"/ Old Bay seasoning is the answer to everything/you have a lot of purple Fridays in a year/really into Renn Fest and the Civil War

    I'm running a little late on my SP package. It's getting in tomorrow's mail. I apologize for any agitation or grief I cause anyone. It's going to a location not too very far from me, so hopefully the USPS will get it there on winged feet.

A unique pencil case, Christmas fabrics for my project, a phone stylus, emoji band-aids, a calendar, a wrist cushion for smart clips, quilting magazines, pumpkin-flavored coffee, thread, two pair of socks-(long and short), pocket tissues, and an emery board.

    Thank you so much!

    Big thank you to Marietta for such a a great swap package-so many things I love. I can't get a picture to post-guess I need to ask Santa for a new camera. She sent me 4 cozy pairs of socks, a much, Bear Christmas ornament(love bears),pins, towel ,Raspberry lotion(yum), mango soap(yum), hobby lobby gift card,patterns, lots of fun fabric (yay), fabric bowl, reeces. Thanks for all of the wonderful items. Brightened my day and cant wait to use the material. I am trying to get back into the sewing thing and using my hand more since the surgery. Also she sent some recipes that sound so good. I really have never heard of buttermilk pie. Thanks so much again!

    A package was delivered today and I wasn't home to sign for it
    Will have to wait until Monday.

    Buttermilk pie is our family favorite, it's the only desert that's being brought to our Thanksgiving dinner this year 35+ people , 5 pies, Probably not enough HA

    Mom had two recipes for her pie, She's been gone 25 years. We never know which one she always used so we all just use both lol, and they taste the same.

    BUTTERMILK PIE
    2 uncooked pie shells
    2 cups sugar
    cup real butter (margarine will do)
    3 Rounded Tablespoons flour
    3 eggs, well beaten
    1 cup buttermilk
    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Cream butter and sugar together , Add flour and eggs. Beat well; Add buttermilk and flavoring.

    Pour into uncooked pie shells. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
    ((*Optional* Sprinkle with freshly grated nutmeg))

    Bake at 350’ for 45 to 50 minutes
    Makes 2 – 9 inch pies
    {{{{the other recipe has 2 tablespoons flour and 5 eggs}}}}
