A Quiet Sunday

Yesterday we spent a quiet Sunday at home....went to try and vote twice, but it was so crowded and I can't stand up too long without suffering back pain, we figured after Church everyone would be voting...and we seem to be right...We did notice a lot of young people were out to vote, that was very pleasing.....we will try again today when most are at work.
We just about took it easy most of the day...I made a pot of "Chicken and Dumplings" one of Cecil's old time favorites, and some greens from the garden < that garden just doesn't want to give up.....wish shipping wasn't so expensive...the kids would enjoy some of them, packed up and ready to cook.
I decided to give my Home Weaving project a rest, I am so delighted to have it on the Loom warped correctly and waiting to be woven on....I just want to look at it for awhile and remember the steps it took to get it to this point...This one certainly has been a learning project...I had to work from the front then work from the back....to get it all lined up...the threads were all twisted every which way, and had to be corrected....ugh! but it's done and looks good ....

No weaving pictures? No chicken and dumplings recipe?

I want to make chicken and dumplings one of these days. I think my family would like it. I wonder if it can be done gluten free.

Deborah , I don't know about gluten free , all I use is flour, salt and cold water....(the water I use yellow food color in it , to give the appearance there is egg yolks used).Ginny

A quiet, peaceful Sunday is a good thing, Ginny. :D I bet you and Cecil enjoyed the chicken and dumplings.
