And try number two

Well my phone screen was dirty causing the camera to not focus right. Here are my new purchases again.

See how nicely my large casserole dish fits. I'm so excited. It even has a rotisserie for chicken.

Here is the recipe I'm using tonite.

Redi set go express

Jim bought us some cooking goodies yesterday that we really needed. First off last month our toaster died after almost fifteen years of use. Also a few months back our toaster/convection oven overheated. It was much older than that. So is our new toaster convention oven. All my biggest casserole dishes fit inside with room to spare.

And he also bought me the express redi set go. We have been wanting this for a while now. I made yummy omelets and m&m cookies.

Of course the omelets were so good we ate them right up before I could get a photo. But the cookies turned out yummy.

Rough morning with Sheba

I feel like the worlds worst mommy. We've been giving Sheba gapentin for pain and she has been weak in her back legs on and off in the mornings. It seems to manage the pain but not go well with her in other ways. The first day was too much then the next two better as I reduced the dose. All this was happening after a chemo infusion so we didn't know what was causing what. Last night she seemed more uncomfortable and so i gave her a touch more and this morning she had an awful time walking due to weakness in her back legs.

Let me just say this....

CANCER SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!

So today I will really have to help her till the neurontin gets out of her system.

I just feel so frustrated and terrible for giving her something that made her feel bad.

Chemo and books

Rent a half pricebooks yesterday while sheba was having chemo. 1 of the books I got is called The Psalms for Today by Mark Link. In my meditation time I had a good talk with the Lord. It seems that I am trying to control things that are in God's hands only. So I've decided to submit to his will. I realize I need to trust him and quit trying to do it on my own. Cancer can be so hard. It breaks your heart. For those of you who don't usually read my blog my medical service dog has terminal cancer. We are doing everything we can to keep her comfy and with a good quality of life. Also I got a bunch of needle crafting books. Have a look see.

I am looking forward to lots of fun crafting real soon. The parchment painting looks awesome. I think i will do those in watercolor. The crazy patchwork is step by step with high gloss pictures like on many of the blog tutorials I see.

I got some other Christian books and a really cool Serendipity Bible . It has lots of discussion questions for group study or individual study.

I also got a wonderful RAN from Marley at

Thanks so much Marley. You shouldp check out her blog I've been reading it since I began blogging over a year ago. She has a nice option on it to receive it by email each post. I follow a few blogs that I get by email and i love read it.

Dont forget to sign up for my giveaway.
I will draw the winner on the 30th of April.

Pray for Jim and I. The stress worrying about Sheba is really getting to us. Cancer really sucks. We try to be positive around her because she can sense our worry or grief and then feel bad herself. We don't
that. I'm jouraling to get he emotions my feelings out on paper otherwise I'm going to end up with an ulcer for sure. Just need support. Thanks....

Beautiful flowers

I was really moved when i saw these ribbon flowers. Aren't they gorgeous.

More from Pam's visit...

We went to the library for their book sale and i hit the jackpot with all these old needlework books. This one is on bargello. I had been trying to figure out what that was when i got a needlepoint book and i saw one of the designs done with vertical lines instead of continental stitches.I'm slow glad I can learn how now. Pam liked this so much she borrowed it.

Here is the lineup of books I got.

This bazaar book has the cutest pin cushions.
