those rotary egg-beaters we used back in the day? Before emulsion blenders? I’d forgotten all about them, too, until the oldest and I were having a conversation about perfecting egg whites for meringue cookies, and pavlova, and well, meringue – lol… And I thought of the ones we used at my gr-mother’s house [and our Mom had one too -] So I tucked the idea of finding one in the back of my mind – nothing I had to have right away – but I did have specifications – it had to be useable – and clean [non-rusty]…
Nothing I was looking for seriously –
but I knew I’d KNOW IT when I found it. Ha.
And I love it – this little beauty has a mint green handle on the side [unlike the top handles from the ones of my childhood.] It needed a little tweaking to work smoothly…
pavlova… here I come…
I caught up some art work this week [Have I shared I’m taking an on-line class that gives one assignment a week --- and I added to that a wonderful class from my friend Bernice that is giving us a prompt and technique EVERY DAY this month?]
One of the assignments was shaving cream art –
I made ALL THIS from one mixture. FUN.
And the smell of shaving cream took me RIGHT BACK to church youth camp where we had SCHEDULED shaving cream [& water balloon] battles – are those out-lawed now?
I enjoyed catching up friends this week. Friends who are a TRUE gift in my life – I see some weekly at Bible Study, but also at lunches during the month...
And I met one at a local beauty school to have our hair done - y’all know I’m thrifty! Myu first time to have color put in with foil wrappers - and I love the way it turned out! [Please don't shoot me for posting this photo!!] and I met a couple of others for breakfast Saturday morning – love that we have a more relaxed schedule these days – AND that we’re all making the effort to be together – aaaaannnndddd that I really am making an effort to be a better friend -
It's "crappie season" and Craig and his buddies are having a great time. They caught the limit more than once this week - and he's packaging it up in smaller packages so we can pull one out for a weeknight dinner -
I'll try and remember to share some of the ways I prepare it.
Have a great week, y’all.
I know I’m planning to!
