This is why I haven't blogged in the past week:

My laptop screen died on me last weekend.  Let me just say how much I hate -HATE- Dell computers.  I've had this laptop a little over a year and a half.  Just long enough that the warranty has expired but not long enough that I thought something as major as the screen dying would happen.

My husband hooked up an old monitor so I can at least have something to use.

Seriously annoyed with DELL and it's crappy computers.

Fab Five Friday

I don't have five pictures to share this week but I thought I'd share the few I do have.  I went out Monday morning and took a few shots of the snowflakes as they hit my jacket.  These are much more detailed snowflakes than I posted a few weeks ago.

I'm linking up with Nichole  :o)

Homemade Applesauce

So we had another snow day yesterday (yay!).  Since I was up early, I decided to run to the store quick and get some supplies to make homemade applesauce.

Do you have any idea how easy it is to make it in your crockpot?  I had no idea.

So this is all you have to do...

buy or pick some apples (I used Gala)....

peel them....

chop 'em up and throw 'em in the crockpot.....

dump a little water in, sprinkle a little sugar on top, a couple squirts of lemon juice, and put the lid on.  I had my crockpot on high and about 2 1/2 hours later it was ready.

So easy and so good!  I put some on my oatmeal this morning.  My new obsession is this website and all her oatmeal creations.  Who knew there were so many ways to eat oatmeal?

Anyway, back to the applesauce.  I used this site as a guide because I wasn't really sure how to go about making the applesauce.  Easy to follow, she even says it'd be hard to mess up.  And the name of her blog makes me giggle, cuz I'm mature like that (please tell me I'm not the only one).

Shots from Saturday and Sunday

Bought these super sexy shoes at *Walmart.  I know, I shouldn't have shown you, now you'll want some too ;o)  Story behind these to come later.

Cleaned the office after our annual Christmas explosion.  It went from this

to this after a couple hours of cleaning.

Still needs a little organizing but at least we can walk in without risking injury.

Went out for supper Saturday night and finally got my salad I was craving earlier last week.

A car pulled up outside Sunday afternoon  with icicles "growing" out of the roof.

Ended the weekend with homemade custard and apple dumplings.
