tonight there's an oatmeal pie baking in our woodstove's oven.
i like making extra pie crust and being able to whip up a quick pie!
the other night i made broccoli cheese quiche with the other 2 crusts.
this evening i will have everyone eat leftovers and then they can have pie eating rights. especially since i've done oodles of dishes myself today.

The Wrestling can be hard on a mother's nerves.
Green grass, you are welcome to come soon nd be a wrestling mat.
