Making tarts

Well, you can tell it is cold outside, my gray cat only comes in when it gets cold, other than that, we only see him at dinner time. He likes my big dough bowl on the table. Good thing I took everything out of it and left it empty.

I wanted to work on something today, but didn't want to sew. So I ended up making a ton of tarts, I used up my 10 pounds of wax that I got yesterday. I made, creme brulee, sugar corn pudding, Kettle corn, Amish Quilt, Hot Cocoa, Apple dumpling and Banana nut bread. The Hot Cocoa smells just like the real thing. I had some marshmallow embeds and put one on top of the each of the Cocoa tarts. My hubby was in the living room and said what smells like chocolate. I think he thought I was baking. He is a chocoholic. I guess that was his favorite, said it smelled like the real thing.

Tomorrow, I go with Samantha and her bridesmaids to look at dresses, then Sunday to a Wedding expo. She still has to book a band, get flowers and a cake. So I guess I will be busy this weekend.
My doctors appointment was a little disappointing. They want to do an ultrasound on my gallbladder to make sure it is alright.They are hoping I don't have a tumor in there. They said some of my symptoms might be gallbladder, so another test. I know my stomach has really hurt today. I just wish I could have a day that I felt good again. This really gets old. But at least the headaches are gone for a little bit. I need to feel good this weekend, to be with Samantha and help her.
Well, take care and hope to get some pics of some bridesmaid dresses tomorrow to post.
I got an email from Diane, she had made up my free Annie on a bobbin and here is the pic of it. I think she did a great job on it.
