A nice Tuesday...

Well, this morning found me vacuuming/redding up the house a bit. ( no, not painting my house red!... we call it redding up... but it's actually readying up..ha(tidying)..I got the term "redding" from my husband years ago..never had used the term until I married that man..ha funny the terms we pick up from one another once we get married)

---------------
Then oldest daughter had her sewing tutor here for several hours.
During the time that the sewing teacher was here, I took that time to wrap Christmas gifts.
---------------------
Then this evening I was able to work a little bit on hand sewing projects that I am making for both my mother and my mother in law.

After that... I worked a little on trying to clean unnecessary website clutter from my "faves" list on my computer. Not an overly exciting day today I know..but I did feel like I got a few things accomplished at least.

I also cooked up a big pot of soup this afternoon using the ham bone left from the Thanksgiving ham.

I put frozen butterbeans,frozen succotash and gumbo vegetables into the pot with the ham bone and plenty of pepper and water to cover, let it cook for several hours..yummy! It made a pretty hearty bean type soup. One of those "toss it in the pot and let it cook" kind of meals.

Seems that those ones that I never use a recipe for, but "guesstimate" on...are the ones that turn out pretty good..ha.
--------------------
Oh, I wanted to tell you all about a drawing that my friend Elizabeth is having on her "My Simple Journey" blog.
Here:

I must say..that I hope I win this one..as we are in the process here at our home on trying to learn how to eat and cook better for our health. But I also wanted to share the news here too. Elizabeth is a real sweety that shares lots of home making tips and recipes on her blog.
-----------------------
Well..I hope that you all have had a lovely day today.
