I also have always loved homemade noodles, but never made them. I thought they would be soooooo hard to make. Ila always made a batch when she visited me and I would freeze them. I would make her a 5lb bag of flour into biscuits and she would freeze them. (I miss her so much). Well, my friend Nancy also makes wonderful noodles and always brings me some when they visit. I think every Ohio woman makes her own noodles. Well I learned to make noodles while Nancy was here. I was surprised it was a lot like making dumplings for chicken and dumplings.
After my company left I rearranged furniture. Just a little. You know my fireplace is electric, but it has a heat element. I usually sit in the reading nook when I am reading or on the computer. I moved the chair and the ottoman over by the fireplace, where I could feel the heat. It also gives a little ambiance, which is important, right?
I took the old quilt off the rope bed and put the coverlet on for the winter.(Hopefully I will sell and move before winter, but if not I will keep it on.)
PS: I have a real treat next post. We are going on a field trip. Yep, to Amanda's. She has decorated for Halloween and even though she is not prim, I KNOW you are going to love it!
PSS: I am in the process of getting ready to have a realtor take over the sale of the house. I am packing away a lot of things and storing some things. My pictures will be a LOT different. Please bear with me, as I go through this process.
PSSS: I cannot close without asking you to continue to pray for our blogging friends. Almost everyday someone is e-mailing me, asking for prayers. We don't need names nor the problems, all we need to do is pray. You bloggers are a wonderful group, and I feel blessed to be a part of your community.
