Daffy's Stitchy Friends

Completely Random Stuff

It is November 16th and that means NaBloPoMo is halfway over. I've been able to post every day so far. Hopefully my posts have been interesting and fun. The last thing I want to do is bore you!

I was feeling homemakerly today. When I got home from work, I readied this beef roast in the crock pot. I'll put it on in the morning and dinner is nearly done! Doesn't it look pretty? I also made a tub of Onion Butter for snacking. Onion Butter: 1 pkg cream cheese, 1 stick butter, 1/2 a medium onion-diced very fine, 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of mayo, a sprinkle of parsley or chives. Mix all together (easier if you let the butter & cream cheese soften) and chill. Yummy on crackers or celery. It also makes hubby's feel loved.


My blog reader is still full. I've gone through a few posts but I keep running out of time this week. My laundry is clean but unfolded. The dishes from tonight's dinner are done, it was just frozen fish sticks and Kraft mac & cheese, lazy. Where does the time go? It isn't fair.

Do you Stumble? Jessie told me about it and it's a lot of fun. Careful though, it's addictive! She's found some pretty cool sites, like this one, Animals On The Underground.

No stitching in two days...can you hear my withdrawal groans? However, 123 Stitch! has emailed to say my order was shipped. Woo Hoo! We haven't gone anywhere in AGES due to football season. Every weekend, poor Rick asks me what I have planned the weekend? I don't have the heart to scream, "STASH SHOPPING! To hell with football this weekend!" *sigh* When I sweetly say, "Oh, nothing." He gets that relieved look on his face and I feel like an understanding wife. So I went Internet shopping instead. *insert evil laugh here* :o) Chiloe, by the way...I got your thread while I was at it. I'll send it along as soon as it gets here!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Laural said...

That looks SO good. I would love to eat that for breakfast right now.
I stitched Holly Reindeer Monday night.

Annie said...

That makes me hungry!

I always try to stitch a little every day even if only 10 minutes. I understand that withdrawal thing. And I understand the 123 stitch thing too! Your order arrives almost before you place it.

Jackie said...

Everything I put into a crockpot ends up getting over cooked. Any tips? I use a lot of chicken breasts. I would love to come home to an almost completely done dinner.

I find internet shopping very dangerous. I was looking at someones blog 2 weeks ago and loved what she was stitching. Within 2 mintues, I had the chart, thread, linen and a pinkeep kit on the way. 2 minutes!

Julie said...

lots of nice things to make a tummy rumble on this post

Annette said...

I'm very curious what you ordered!!.
Hope to see it soon.

Carol said...

That "stumble" site looks like it could definitely be addicting! Thanks for the tip :)

Your dinner looks soooo.... tasty!!!

Doris said...

looks very delicious food. Internet shoping is a great invention, I'm addicted amazon.co.uk, I bought amigurumi books, painting, some to learn English for my daughter, etc. .. At home we follor Fromula 1 season 1, but are on vacation until April or May, so we have to go visit my in-laws. It's very cold where I live (sierra de madrid) so we go into town to see them. and with this cold, I just want to sleep late and do nothing...
