Tea for Two Tidbits.

I have been busy enjoying the sunshine, cutting grass, rewriting
 my recipes and cooking new meals. I
still need to transplant my house flowers with fresh soil.
No time for tea and tidbits although I would love to have these little
people wearing my clothes around me. lol
When I was a kid I had my dolls and story books and I was in love with the black
shoes in one of them. I thought, when I grow up, I will have a little girl
and buy her these same shoes. Well I never did cause I have boys. lol

The top pinafour was so easy and fun to make and turned out
so pretty with the blue button. It would fit a 6 month baby.

The pink out fit was also easy and fun to make using cluster stitches.
I especially love the hat and the fact that it is a yoke pattern.
 The button on the hat and the sweater is a daisy.
It is certain to keep a little one toasty warm.

I love these as well. The lacy hat and booties are soooo soft.
I will have to make another lacy hat since I have two sets of booties.
The top of the booties have picot edgings.
I could not make pom poms for them .
Booties are so much fun to make for tiny feet.

I love this pinafour. The colors are soft, as well as the piece itself.
I could caress it all day.The picture did not come out well so I will
have to redo it. I am sure it is for a 6 mo to a year old baby.

This little shell outfit is for a new born with silver buttons
and picot edgings. I can't imagine my son today but he did fit
 t shirts as small as

So much for the outfits I made so far.

Today  was a somewhat productive morning.
Put the chicken and potato with okra to bake.
Rewrote some recipes into my journal. I have some really good egg recipes.

I found my old mayo recipe using dry mustard. I used to love making that mayo.
Its french. Nothing you buy in stores today compares to it.

Lately I carry my recipes with me cause I forget what needs to be put into them once I get to the store. So when I get there I look up what I want to make and then buy for that day.
Began a new christening dress in crochet . I already did the neck line and think now the sleeves and skirt will start. I did not check the pattern.

I love christening dresses. We used to have such beautiful ones when I was a kid and today they keep it simple.
But I would love to get the lace and sew a few the way they were made before.

Really have to get that sewing machine out again.

Bella is becoming a pain in the ass lol
Every time I lie down she comes and barks at me to get up.
I have to put my feet up but she says no put them down and then she sleeps beside them. lol

I really love this dog She is so expressive and her young spirit is very attractive to my old one. She keeps me smiling . All young life is beautiful because of its' innocence.

Beau is happy getting his walkies and Tanya just has her eyes peeled to everything the little one wants or has so she can take it away. Lately it is the squeeky ball.

The little one is already longer than she is and quite fluffy. I keep thinking she is a black angora cat. then I see she is a dog. lol
Yesterday we came across a beautiful bandit looking cat.
It had a black bandits' band around the eyes and the rest of it was gold.

Such a beautiful cat. I will have to take a picture of it if I see it again.
 I have never seen one like it before and well Bella saw it too and flipped out. lol

Yup, the old cat thought, well this ain't good and casually walked away.
This Bella will have to learn that cats are out of bounds.
If this was Tatty, he would stand his ground.
The other animals were raised with cats so for them a cat means nothing but
 for Bella this is all new.

Hope you  are all happy and healthy keeping busy with the spring weather.

My Thai

 Thailand is truly a beautiful place to visit.
I always loved these houses the people lived in.
The life style seemed so quiet and peaceful.
If only places like this were not disturbed by
The richest people in places like this were those who could
afford electricity for a light bulb or a TV set.
Today with solar energy, every one can afford electricity
and have the best of both worlds.

We craved for Thai food so found this little place in Langley,BC.
It's called:    My Thai.
 It's not a fancy place but the food is good. The prawns were absolutely so fresh,
its just as if they just caught them.
It's on one of these little streets where cars are parked sideways
on both sides like one would see in a cowboy town where you tie up your horse
in front of establishments.
They had a nice little art gallery which also offered
lessons to stay alive. My Thai also offers cooking lessons to keep the public
Out of the way places like this, could use a little more advertising.
Unlike White Rock which has an ocean to attract people, they just have their
little special kind of attractions worth coming to see.

I think we would go to My Thai just for the Tom Yum soup they make
with rice. It is absolutely delicious!

This link is a recipe for what we had I think.

Man, As Innocent as a Babe

My beautiful lacy baby hat.

Lev Kulikov seems to be a spiritual educator I found on you tube.
He tries to explain faith as consisting of two parts :
Intellect and emotion.
This then falls into how we see faith and how we work to keep it pure and clean.
Intellect and emotion affects every man. If man is not of the right faith or mind, it is difficult to get him out of the hole he is in.
The first thing needed, is to understand that we are not separate from God. Even Karma ( which is a collection of mistakes affecting our health and destiny or future) is not given all at once by the creator, because if it was, we would live a total of six years before we self destruct. 
To enjoy life longer than six years , we have to learn organization and self control and God gives us time to do this. He watches over each individual and so we are always in contact with the creator so our emotion and health can heal from our mistakes, through wisdom. 
The creator regulates mans' karma or extra sensory perception.
A sick man comes to get healed of an illness. He leaves and then comes in again. Why?
 Because the karma program changes in each man with reality of health and destiny.
To stop all these karma programs, is the only way to totally heal a persons intellect and emotion.
We can ask God to do it and he can but instead he gives us karma because something is not right.
Man has to take charge of his life, clean it, put it in order and the first thing required, is faith in God, that he exists and that he has no other objectives other than love for mankind.
The rest man can do with as he wishes. He can take what he can and leave what he can't, push what he can and deal with his existing emotions.
The question becomes then is does man affect faith or does faith affect man?Who is the boss?
The answer is that man is God and King who does what he can.
When a man gets a cold he goes home and takes medicine and heals. When he has emotional problems affecting his health, he seeks help and is given instruction to do this by cleaning up his soul faith and intellect.
Emotions live in space which develop creation, yielding intellect, deciding what a man must do.
Space could be destructive to the building of life.
We must know how to build our faith using 4 things:
right : that everything begins with right beginning with mental creation
Physical realization
Emotion which is electrical
thoughts which is a magnetic field
When we remember we remember in emotion, the electrical part.
God is part of the living reality whereby man understands that he cannot live without him.
Once he understands this his life becomes easier because it has structure.
Harmony is a system existing on many infinite levels.
Parasites live at the lowest level.
Parasites live in what he call hell but the existence of hell is our own creation and is separate from what is.
for example:  A man can eat a mushroom but a mushroom can't eat a man.
Suppose one grows on a finger and we ask why? Well this is because the blood does not reach that part of the finger to give it the blood chemicals it needs to kill the mushroom.
Another system of Anarchy is also a criminal faith.
The middle ground between heaven and hell exists on the 9th-10th level of infinite harmony.

Physically man has a point of termination If someone tells him he will physically live forever he is lying.--
Life is a spirit from God. Its a system with a soul and body
The spirit controls the body.
It has a memory where emotion is kept in many places.
Knowledge contained in the body and spirit yields emotion.
Our purpose in life is education where we learn to correct mistakes through passing an exam.
Info in and of itself is not education unless it is understood.
Worry for example can result in other problems.
Man doesn't understand that he is King over his situations or problems in life.
Spiritual problems requires passing an exam through learning to understand it.
Family and relatives try to teach but learning can take place anywhere.
A mother has a child it tries to teach but sees the child is not learning.
The child does not understand the mechanism of life.
The child does not understand faith
or maybe the child does and the teacher doesn't.
I like the way this man explains things in lay mans terms and this is why he is called a man of wisdom and man who can pass on understanding to other people.
I always found that turning every problem in life into an element of education helps a lot in mental harmony.
Everything bad that happens or crosses your path in life, is about
educating you to become a better person.

Every Mom gets a Red Red Rose
for knowing the passion of what
having and loving children is.

For what is a Mother without the golden hands
caressing her child and leading it by the hand
into a world so foreign, preparing it for the struggles ahead.

What is a Mother if not the aged lady who sits watching her children
with old  devoted eyes, a Mother who would still lay down her
life for each and every one of them.

A Red Red Rose for Mother
The Guardian of strength and power.
The giver of life and love
Preparing a destiny for another.
 A Lady's Life

Little Bit of Lovin

This little new born 0-3 mo. set I made with silver buttons
is so cute.
I got a really nice designer, dark gray ribbon for the booties,
and the hat in the right hand corner.

The hat in the right hand corner is larger so I will keep it for another set.
for the 3-6 month babies.

They are fun to make cause they don't take much time and it keeps me busy
passing time.

It is raining a lot this end of the country. The grass is really long and
 needs a good cutting but we are waiting for it to dry a bit or
 the lawn mower will not cut it. I need a good garden tractor so
 I can do it myself since pushing a mower would be out of the question.

I always take the skins off the chicken . Usually I roll them up and freeze then
and then chop them and
give them to the birds outside in winter.
Now what I did was roll them up and put them into another container to roast with the chicken.
They dry out and cool and now my Rovers have home made chicken chewies.
Pays to make them at home.
With a big dog I guess you would have to roll out a lot of skins to make it thick and long
but with my little girls one chicken leg makes a nice tid bit to chew on.

Hope you all have a nice day.

A Man's Gotta Do What a Mans' Gotta Do

If there is a way you can be sure a man will find it to shorten his work load.

I wonder if this can apply in the army where soldiers have to peel potatoes?

Makes the load easier to bear.
Have a great day!
