We gave her 2 boxes of black wild rice, a jar of pimentos and a bag of mini-marshmallows. I had no idea what to get, or how creative she could be.
She cooked the rice, added the pimentos and added leftover diced chicken we had that she marinated a bit in soy sauce.
She made a dessert with the mini-marshmallows and crushed rice chex cereal. She added raisins also. It kind of tasted like rice krispie treats, but tougher to chew. She did pretty good.
I think they had so much fun with this that I may purchase items for her and her younger sister for another round.
Gus came home late afternoon yesterday. He's doing good and getting lots of pampering. He follows my son everywhere now. The vet told my son that the growth/lump was very deep, black and very nasty looking. My son agreed to have it tested in a lab, so we will know for sure. However, my son felt another lump in another area, so he'll be watching that too. Thank you for all you prayers for Gus.
The weather is a teensy bit warmer, and we got more snow last night. The pipes finally thawed by late evening last night - YAY! We get showers!
Although yarn and quilling paper has arrived in my mail, I continue to knit and crochet daily. I am amazed how fast I can knit know compared to last summer. I can remember days where I could not knit when the kids were home. I literally had to take entire knitted block apart, because I lost track of rows and stitches. I'm not an expert at it, but much better. Now, when I get back to tatting, I'll probably have to re-teach myself again. Ha ha ha!
