What are you doing?

Dang. I couldn't find the original recipe, but here's what I'm doing:

Dumped, boiled up, strained and drained a whole bunch of Keurig cups we didn't like for coffee. Didn't care for the Newmans. I used about 9 K cups, and a half pot of water in a 4 quart pot.

Added about a cup of brown sugar, and a quarter cup of agave syrup, along with a couple of split vanilla beans. You could probably use vanilla extract. Right now I'm waiting for the mix to reduce. After it cools, I'll strain it again and add vodka.

Thanks. It never occurred to me to make Kahlua at home. Can't wait to give it a try I have homemade vanilla extract so I'll use that.

GG, wish I could send you a taste. Even without booze, it's outstanding! I see a white Russian in my near future.

It's a great way to use up coffees that aren't something you would usually drink.

A lot of the Kahlua recipes online use instant coffee. I like mine better!

I saw a post on Pinterest where the person used masking tape on the cloth as a seam guide. Made sense to me!
No sewing machine here - I think I'll take it to a quilt shop here in town. The ladies there do wonderful work, and know their stuff.

Then I would go for it! Sleep with your "new" quilt.

I think we don't use our stuff enough. You reminded me to rotate my quilt, Cheryl, thanks!

If anything ever happened to DH I would either have to hire someone to cut the grass or get an electric mower. Right now I'm leaning toward hiring someone. I would never want to play around with gasoline.

Our yard is so lumpy and sloped, I would hire someone to mow it too.

Right now, we have a few neighbor kids I could hire. But they're growing up fast, and DH is still capable of mowing, though he complains bitterly.

One of the greatest pleasures of condo living is that I don't have to do any yard work or pool care, and very little snow shoveling.

DH needs something to complain bitterly about. Mowing and snow shoveling make his life complete.

Need to make some more hummingbird food, I see the feeder is empty. I bought a new one this year.

TB bought a tiny electric mower from a garage sale a couple of years ago. It is perfect for our tiny bit of grass we had put in for Violet.

I am enjoying a little peace for a few minutes while TB, Violet and our weekend guest go for a walk. Every Thursday night we have our friend Kay's almost 4 year old son stay for an over night. The on Saturdays we pick up his 5 year old sister for the night. This gives Kay a chance to have one on one time with her kids and to get some housework done! And it gives us kid time which is great! This is a very sad situation with an abusive husband/father who is now totally out of the picture. But there are still pieces to pick up from the damage he caused.

We will probably take her to the park again before taking her home.
