Where does the time go when you're retired?! I've had my hands in quite a few projects lately. Between that and the change to Daylight Savings Time, I need a vacation!
Over the weekend Mr. Squash and I decided to drive to a few small neighboring cities. Along the way we saw that Izzy the Camel was out enjoying the sunshine with his buddies. We pulled over the get a photo and he was kind enough to give us this wonderful pose!
Across the road the sun was shining on the winter wheat making a gorgeous pattern. I just love driving these roads all year long. The wheat in it's different stages is always amazing sight.
Yesterday I got the bug to make my Coconut Cream Pie. I usually like to make it for Easter, but this year we're going out, so I thought why wait? The meringue turned out really good this time. From the counter to the top it measures six inches! You can find the recipe for the Pate Brisee here and the recipe for the pie here. I've never been able to make all the cute little loops at the top like Martha does, but I guarantee the taste is really good!
I finished quilting my little Churn Dash quilt and am applying the binding now. I also tried putting a nice quilt on top of our new blanket chest - it's a winner - don't you think?
