Wednesday Chat – Complete Lack of Sleep

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to all the new patrons who are hopping on board! I’m blown away by the success I’ve had on patreon in less than one year! If you are a content creator, artist, singer, or whatever, you can have your own patreon page too! 

It’s Wednesday.

My brain is fried. I could not sleep last night. Too many thoughts were running through my mind. It was a tossing and turning nightmare.  I considered getting up and working but I knew I didn’t have the mindset for that. I finally slept a bit this morning.

Now it’s past 2:00pm and I am not even dressed yet. Must jump in the shower then start this day.  This is so not how I planned things.  But all is not lost. I’m sure I can get a few things done. One is recording for ASMR. That’s on the top of my list.

Yesterday, I finally uploaded a quilt top video!  It had been over 4 months since I tackled anything quilty. It felt so good to have that video on my channel. I know many of my subscribers miss my crafty side. I was hoping my mood for those videos would come back, and it did! Much more to follow!

I was also able to record for patrons last night. I gave an update on my struggles with my primary care doctor. I really feel I need to shop for another doctor, but I hate to do that in the middle of surgeries and stuff. Just a hot mess. It’s no wonder I don’t sleep.

I need to take my shower before it starts to get dark. lol  I love that it’s getting dark earlier. I can’t wait until it’s pitch black by 5:00pm. I come alive when that happens.

Here’s what I have on the blog since my last update…

When shopping on ebay, always read the descriptions. Some items ship from overseas and can take a few weeks to arrive. Usually the description will state how long shipping might take. Also, for clothing, overseas sizes usually run on the small size so it’s good to order larger by a size or two. Always check the shipping charges. I’m not familiar with these sellers so please do your homework and shop accordingly. Some offer special deals like getting a free item or a percentage off if you buy a certain quantity so be sure you pay attention to that too!

Applesauce Pancakes Recipe

Please remember that I don’t eat this stuff so I did not test this recipe. I’m just posting so you can try it!

Applesauce Pancakes Recipe
a General Mills Recipe

Check out this huge selection of Betty Crocker Cookbooks!

INGREDIENTS:

check for ingredient coupons here
2 cups Original Bisquick mix
1 cup sweetened applesauce
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 eggs
(see my tips below)

See All My Patreon Video Titles!

DIRECTIONS:

1: In medium bowl, stir all ingredients with wire whisk or fork until blended.

2: Brush skillet with vegetable oil or spray with cooking spray; heat skillet over medium heat.

3: For each pancake, pour slightly less than 1/4 cup batter onto hot skillet. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook other sides until golden brown.

Search for stuff you need on Amazon, on eBay and at Walmart!

Darlene’s Tips:  You can use apple pie spice instead of cinnamon or skip the spice, not necessary and will still be delish! Or you can buy cinnamon flavored applesauce. Serve with a dollop of whipped topping or even a small scoop of ice cream.

It’s Tuesday!  And it’s Skylar’s 10th Birthday!

Derrick got back from Austria just in time. They left Austria early yesterday morning and he got back to Memphis late last night. Skylar has school today (they start early) but he will be there to celebrate with family and friends after school. Just a small pool party with good food. Skylar’s big celebration will be on the 25th at a water park.

Skylar’s mom, Janet, just sent me a picture of Skylar’s birthday cake. Skylar made it all by herself last night. She’s getting very good at making cakes from scratch!  It’s red velvet with cream cheese frosting and chocolate chips. Ten candles, of course!

I wish I could be there, but I’m forever grateful that I get her for a few weeks every summer.  And I hope to get out there to see here this fall.

Today, I must hurry up and finish the quilt top that I started recording yesterday. My mother’s aide comes today and I need to wrap up that video before she gets here as I really can’t record while she’s here.  Expect a video tonight!

Here’s what I have on the blog since my last update…
