Tramp Eggs, Music, Memories and a Face Mask.....

I don't know about you but our already loose schedule has slipped another notch or two.
It seems to take me longer and longer to get out of bed in the mornings.
Actually, it wasn't even morning but nearly 1:00 this afternoon when I finally put my feet on the floor and made up the bed. Last night was a restless one and I was up over a dozen times in the night. It was after 4:30 before I really got to sleep good. That made waking up at 10:45 not so bad when you consider how long I stayed awake. 

I made a new to me recipe this afternoon!


I got it from Estelle's!
 You know she has such great recipes!!!


Instead of breakfast - this was served around 4:00!
Louis Dean loved it and gave it an A+!

I've become used to cooking for two so I laughed when Chandy sent me this pic.....


I may not have mentioned it before but she has lots of mouths to feed!
She and Chris have yours, mine and ours which is a lot of kids.
I think there's 8 and the baby will make 9. 
Thankfully, some of them are young adults now but they still eat!

Louis Dean was so happy to have an audience last night that I asked him to play another song this evening.


He's 83 and a life long learner.
He is just now learning to play without sheet music or chord notations in front of him.

I'm enoying the process of printing my blog into books.
A cover for the front and back of each book involves searching that time period for photos.


I've always loved this one!
Christmas 2011 and we all played Nuts!
I caught Amber at the perfect moment.
Or maybe someone else did since I was playing, too!
I used that one for the front cover......


.....and this one for the back.
Levi and I had gone for a walk on the trail at Fellowship Church in March of 2011.


It was fun chatting with Logan this evening.
I amswered her call on my laptop!
I didn't know I could do that!
I remember the first time my iPad rang with a call.
It scared me!
It was my stepson and he didn't know you could do that either.
He had called me by accident and he had no idea it popped up on my iPad.

Today was Tuesday, March 31st but I got confused and thought it was April first and changed all the calendars last night. Life is strange these days.


Brenda knows how much I enjoy Goodwilling on Tuesdays so she dropped a bag of treasures that she was going to donate to let me have first look!
She is so clever! I got a text message from her this morning saying....

"Mrs. Chapman, since it is Goodwill Tuesday, your Goodwill bag should arrive around 3:00 this afternoon! Please confirm."

That made it easier for me to get out of bed! She gave me something to look forward to!

I was knee deep in cleaning the sewing room tonight so I saved my bag to open tomorrow.
That will help me get out of bed again! Win! WIN!!


I was bound and determined to make at least one face mask now that I could get to my sewing machine. I put this one together and it gave me a good idea of what I need to do. Plus a friend suggested I add a wire of some sort over the nose so it won't fall down.
I'll pay more attention to what I'm doing tomorrow and try to make some more.

Just as I was about to take the laptop to bed and write my words.....I remembered I had fed Louis Dean only once today! The same thing happened yesterday so when I got up this morning, I saw that he had been up in the night cooking - and I couldn't blame him!


After fixing our late afternoon meal, I made a small batch of potato salad to go with a sandwich for our supper. Too bad I forgot all about it until nearly 11:00 tonight!
Better late than ever!

Here's to hoping we all get a good night's sleep......
