Tuesday 4 Meme ~ Weather or Not...



I am happy to see that Annie from Cottage by the Sea is continuing on with the Tuesday 4 that Toni started.


Questions will be up for you here at 9PM on Sunday nights which will give enough time to answer and post on your own blog on Tuesdays.

Welcome to Tuesday 4. I am sure Toni would be so pleased you are here.


Weather or Not...



Let's discuss the weather...


1. Spring is here. What do you like or dislike about it weather wise? The rain... while its needed to help boost along the new life of things... it just makes the days gloomy!

2. How do you fare in humidity? Do you fade or come alive? fade...most definitely fade

3. Do rainy days bother you or are you happy for an occasional break from the sunshine? they bother me... the gloominess of the day puts me in a mood... not the seasonal depression mood of winter.. just a mood...lol

4. In your opinion, what is the best thing about each season? winter.. the only thing good about it is, I get alot of craft projects started and or finished... Spring all of the new life/growth... Summer - sun, sand, flip flops! Fall.... the changing colors, the smells, warm cozy sweaters/sweathshirts.

Happy Homemaker Monday

Good morning everyone! I went MIA for the last weekish. We lost my husbands uncle March 31st. It rattled me... was not expecting this... when you hear you have 6 months and a week later you are gone. The funeral was last Tuesday, it was sad, but yet a good day. I don't think I ever laughed at a funeral service. So many fond memories of Uncle Wayne were mentioned. He will be missed!

And now one with HHM


I am linking up with Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. Head on over to find some other great bloggers.

Tuesday 4 Meme ~ Books/TV

I am happy to see that Annie from Cottage by the Sea is continuing on with the Tuesday 4 that Toni started.



Questions will be up for you here at 9PM on Sunday nights which will give enough time to answer and post on your own blog on Tuesdays.

Welcome to Tuesday 4. I am sure Toni would be so pleased you are here.

This week let's talk about books and TV programs you enjoy....

1. Are you enjoying a book right now and would you tell us about it? Where The Crawdads Sing - haven't picked it up in while - I need to work in some time to read through out my days - so far I am liking it, but it took a bit for me to get into it. I need to start carving in more reading time.


2. Do you have a list of books you are looking forward to reading in the near future? not really

3. What's on television (or YouTube, etc.) at your house? Chicago Med, Fire, PD, The Resident, This is Us, New Amsterdam, The Rookie, Big Sky, Blue Bloods, 911, 911-Lone Star, Prodigal Son, Walking Dead, When Calls the Heart, American Housewife, Call Your Mother, American Idol....... I'm just a bit of a TV junkie

4.What series have you followed religiously and why? (can be TV or book series) see the above list of shows.... I have watched from the beginning of all... when some of these have their series finale I will be sad... you get so attached to some of the characters!

Tasty Tuesday ~ Cherry Cheese Coffee Cake

CHERRY CHEESE COFFEE CAKE

INGREDIENTS
Coffee Cake & Filling
2 pkg (8 oz each) refrigerated crescent rolls
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla or almond extract
1 can (21 oz) cherry pie filling

Glaze
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2-3 tsps milk

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 350°F. Unroll crescent dough. Separate into 16 triangles, reserving 4 triangles for decoration. On Large Round Stone with Handles, arrange 12 triangles in a circle with wide ends toward the outside edge of baking stone and points toward the center. (Points will not meet.) Using lightly floured Baker's Roller®, roll dough to a 14-inch circle, pressing seams together to seal and leaving a 3-in. hole in center.

For filling, in Classic Batter Bowl, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, egg and vanilla; mix until smooth using Classic Scraper. Spread cream cheese mixture over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges; top with pie filling.

Using Pizza Cutter, cut each remaining triangle into thirds starting at the wide end opposite the point and cutting lengthwise to the point. Arrange dough strips evenly in spoke-like fashion over filling. Press ends to seal at center and outer edges. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown; cool slightly.

For glaze, mix powdered sugar and milk until smooth; drizzle over coffee cake using V-Shaped Cutter. Cut into 12 pieces and serve warm using Mini-Serving Spatula.
