A Day at the Park

Yesterday Nicole took Addie to the park and I love this picture.

Addie on the Slide

Look at her pushing the limits . . hands in the air and one leg folded backwards. I think she’s going to be a bit of a dare devil.  She’s going to be a lot like her mom. Nicole can dress up, be dainty and pretty, but she can also put on camo, go hunting, skin a critter, build anything that needs building or fix a broken electrical outlet. I don’t think there’s much that scares Nicole and she’s willing to tackle any project.

I am so thankful that I have a daughter-in-law that I love, is easy to get along with and . . loves to quilt!  :)

Split Pea Soup

We love split pea soup and technically, it isn’t on the diet because of the peas but . . I made it anyway.  There was still one ham left in the freezer from last year’s pig we bought so I cooked it earlier this week. I didn’t want to have ham for the rest of the week so I cut all the meat of the bone, froze the bone, froze part of the meat and used the rest to make a big pot of split pea soup.

Three pounds of split peas is about as much as this pot will hold once the soup is made.

Seven quarts of split pea soup with  ham and carrots. That’s something we will both look forward to having!
