I just ate this piece of homemade Pumpkin Pie along with a cup of delicious Keurig coffee...life is good.
Oh, I knew it would happen one of these days...I forgot to put my cup under the machine when I hit brewing. But I quickly caught it. Luckily there's a neat drip pan that catches liquid if you forget - so it doesn't spill all over the countertop.
I accomplished two of my three goals this weekend.
I tried out The Pioneer's Woman's recipe for pastry (here) and made Pap's Chip Dip.
I did NOT get the Christmas tree put away.
I'm not perfect....ha!
Hubby doesn't care if I leave it up.
However, I would like to get it down before the Merry Maids come on Thursday.
I thought Ree's no fail pie crust recipe seemed familiar.
I found a recipe I cut out of the newspaper probably back in the 1980s that was very similar to hers.
Now I've tried both and both are excellent.

I've been crocheting in the evenings the past few days and have a couple more rounds done on my Christmas Round Ripple.
I wasn't sure about it at first but now I'm really loving it. Maybe it's the colors but I'm liking the design too...finally.
I started out with a pattern (here) and couldn't figure it out after the first couple rounds so I started to do my own thing.
And, no, I'm not writing it down because I didn't know if it would work out.
I wing things a lot.
I never would have believed that I could "wing" anything at crochet when I started this hobby several years ago.
It's not perfect but who cares.
It's handmade and one of a kind!
I working on the green, red and green band now.
I may add another variegated red, green and white yarn I have on hand between two reds.
Check out the Flickr group where we are posting our round ripples.
