Today was hubby's 55th Birthday.  Since he isn't overly fond of cake, I made him a Buttermilk Pie and it was DEVOURED!  Lol!  I had a photo of the remaining slice but can't get it uploaded right now.  Pie recipe from the Garvin County Cookbook:

1 pie crust, uncooked
1 1/2 c sugar
1 c Buttermilk
2 T flour
1/2 stick butter, melted
1/8 t salt
1 t Vanilla
3 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all ingredients, pour into unbaked pie shell.  Cover edges with foil.
Bake for 40 - 45 minutes.  Pie should brown on top.  Remove foil for final 5 minutes of baking to brown crust.  Remove from oven  when pie no longer jiggles.  Let cool and set for a couple of hours before serving.

Eli's Hat

Here is the Crocheted Puppy Hat I made last weekend for my youngest Grandson, Eli.  Eli LOVES puppy dogs!  He was really excited to get a puppy dog hat!!!  His Mom told me that he wore it around all day the next day, saying "my Grandmommy gave me this hat!"   : )  I was finished with this pattern in about 2 hours.

I have also been working on making several crocheted ear warmers this week.  I found a nice pattern that I really like, and it works up quickly, which for me is essential for instant gratification.   I am currently trying to decide between various crocheted flower patterns to make for attaching to the earwarmers.

Happy New Year!  We spent a quiet night and I went to sleep at 9:00pm.  LOL!  So much for New Year excitement!  Hubby will be starting a new job soon, so he is gearing up for that.  It will be a longer drive, but I think this job will be much better for him career-wise. 

I worked on a bearded beanie (photo above) last weekend.  The pattern is listed on and My daughter has been wanting some for herself and the kids so I was experimenting with it.  I scared Hubby when he saw me!  LOL!

I am also wanting to knit myself an earwarmer soon, pattern can be found here:  I'm also getting interested in finding a good plain knitted scarf pattern.

We will see how much I manage to get done.  I moved to a different area at work and I work all the time now and don't get home till 6:30 or 7:00 sometimes!
