I think I have mentioned before the significance of the time 11:11. If not here is a quick recap. My Granny would always read to 11:11 and then turn out the lights and go to sleep. Now she is in the home so I am sure she is not able to do this anymore. After my Poppa died, when we went to the cemetary to bury his ashes when we got back into the car the clock said 11:11 and I told Granny that Poppa was sending her a message. I can't tell you how many times I see 11:11 on the clock and I don't mean I see 11:10 and I sit and wait for it to change, I mean I am doing whatever and just look at the clock and there it is. I smile and say "Hi Poppa" and then what is weird is sometimes immediately after I say that it turns to 11:12 and I think he is answering me. Yeah I know crazy, but still makes me feel good.
So Sunday I am in the house and I look at my cell phone and it said 11:11, then I looked at the oven and microwave and they both said it even though I swear most of the time the clocks are never synced in the house. Then for some reason I checked the news on my phone which pulls up the temperature…and this is what it had on it.
Now lets hear the spooky music…that's weird eh? So anyway, I am like I better call Granny, I mean maybe this was a sign or something. So I called and she was at church, so I had to call back, and I talked to her a bit and she sounded awesome as usual. She has trouble hearing so she can't talk long. I think the home needs to get a better phone…come on already you got elderly people there that need to hear. But I thought I would share that. Do you have any numbers you watch for?
So I went to the doc today and I have aggravated the tendons in my arm, so I am to take it easy for 4 weeks…what? huh? does he know me? He gave me some meds, and a few exercsises to do so that my shoulder does not freeze up. I also had Mark come back and he is going to adjust my computer station as I know that is partly what is causing it, my arm is too high up for working the mouse and typing.
So since I could not stamp today, I baked instead. I have not made Hello Dolly Squares in years.
Here's the recipe. It's one of my Mum's.
Hello Dolly Squares
1/2 cup butter
1 cup graham cracker crumbs (I buy the boxes of crumbs, but I guess you could crush your own)
1 cup coconut
1 cup nuts
1 cup chocolate chips
1 can eagle brand condensed milk (this is different than evaporated milk)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Melt butter in 9×9 pan. Sprinkle crumbs on butter and pat down. Sprinkle nuts, coconut, and chips in layers over crumb mixture. Pour the milk all over this evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool and cut into squares. Let me know what you think.
I shared this picture on Facebook yesterday, so in case you didn't see it over there.
Toby was feeling jealous with me taking pictures of the chickens and chukars so he found some of the staticky dimensionals backing and stuck it on his lip and said "see Mum, I am cute too!" What a love!
Have an awesome Tuesday and thanks for stopping in.
