I smell garlic

Yesterday Nikki was sick. Today Ryan is not feeling well. Two of the marines are fighting cold. So I got up this morning and decided that they were not going to get me sick! o I made a big pot of homemade chicken noodle soup, and I added some extra garlic! LOL

Yesterday I got all of the stuff done that I needed to get done. So I actually got to sit down and do some sewing. I am trying some of the patterns from this book that my mom got me for Christmas. I figure if I screw them up then I will turn them into pet quilts because the pets don't care. I will have to take a picture of the block that I did yesterday.

I finally got to see Ambers pictures from Costa Rico. The are so cool. Man I wish I could have gone. Oh well. Amber got to plant a tree in the rainforest. Now to me that would be cool. Heck I would have gone just to plant trees.

Rusty did our taxes last night. That was a roller coaster ride that I did not want to be on. I swear I hate tax season. At least we are getting money back this year so that is a good thing.

I told Amber that I would show her how to fill out her 1040ez form. Amber said " well why don't you do it for me?" Oh I don't think so. You want to play big girl then you can learn to do your own taxes!

Well I think I am going to go have some of that soup. It just smells so good.

In a nanosecond! I'm constantly planting something on my own property. You talking to the animal-tree lover here. I think that is so awesome she planted a tree in the Rainforest. That is a statement to be made. Sorry everyone is so sick lately. My daughter actually went out and bought a Hello Kitty Sewing Machine last week. Her future MIL makes quilts and is going to show her how. I plan on getting my own sewing machine sometime next month if money isn't tight. I told her she can show me, what she learns from her MIL. I like the idea it'll help her pass time while her fiance is in Iraq.

Speaking of which thank you for offering to be there with advice for us both. That really touched me and meant alot to me. (Hugs) Indigo

I always made chicken noodle soup to make people feel better.  I made the noodles, too, and my kids just loved it.  Now I make vegetable soup since I am a vegan.  I put saurkraut in my last one.  I learned to wash some of the sour out of it from Doc who ate it all  his life, and it gives a different flavor to soup, even better than cabbage.  I use a V-8 base, hot!  Gerry
