Good morning blogging friends!
For those of you not in the wake
of Irma I hope that you are
able to find something to
laugh at today.
Florida folks you are in my
thoughts and I am watching the
news....please do all you can
to stay safe.
Two nights in a row I cooked.
I see some of you shanking your
heads and saying you cook
all the time.
I do not.
(last night dinner)
I cooked every night when I had
kids living here but when they
moved out years ago I realized
that I did not have to do that...
unless the notion hit me.
I made a BIG pot of
chili the night before and
the meal above last night.
But this is what happens when
you don't focus....
and you decided to go sit
on the deck.
This was water!
And this is a metal piece that
was on the bottom of that pan.
This is what happens to a potholder
when I tried to remove that metal
Moving on to sunflower seeds form
almost catching the kitchen on fire!
Who eats these things?
Well I have since I was a young teen.
One of my older and best friends
and I would walk to the store,
buy a couple of bags....eating
them all the way home.
Yep, I love the ones you have to open!
This is the kind Barb and I used to get.
Recently though I found these below.
So I compared the two. I had in my mind
that David and Son's were the best until I
tried them together.
David and Son's are plump seeds and
plumper meat inside.
But saltier than I remember.
Frito Lay's are not near as
fat and plumb but they actually have
a better taste. Still pretty salty.
Went to Walgreens the other day
and picked up these. Never had them
and was not at all sure what I was getting.
Salted but very little. Not plump like
David and Son's but the taste is great.
More seeds that actually have nothing
in them once you open them but...
I really enjoyed these
better than the other two.
Loving the not so salty bit.
You see I have an addicting personality.
I find something I like, and I wear it out.
Like the sugarless popsicle I was
eating after surgery. I could finish
a box in two days.
Sunflower seeds are my KICK now.
Soon I will move to something else.
Good thing I never decided to do drugs...
I probably would have kicked the bucket
Did a 615 Rock drop yesterday when mom
and I went out.
Hoping someone picked this up
Okay.....am I rushing it a bit?
Nope, I am ready.
Leaves are getting lighter on the trees,
some are turning and falling and
Nashville is enjoying temps
in the mid 70's!
With NO HUMIDITY!
The plaque above I made the other day.
I used a leaf from an old
table that I took apart.
See the leaf hanging there?
The drawer I used for something else!
Will dig up a pic of that to
I did run across this pic though.
This was last yr.
Nope...I have not unpacked my
fall stuff yet but I am
thinking of doing that....
Look what I just found when
I went to get creamer for my
Who puts peanut butter
in the fridge?
NOT me....unless by mistake!
Laid down on the guest bed
the other day and looked
chandelier that Theresa (friend)
I do have a question
for you bloggers that have
When it comes time to put
up a Christmas tree, how do
you keep your kitten/cat
out of it?
Wanted to share these with you.
My younger brother can make
some of the coolest things.
I started taking paint classes
when I was 42. I took them
for five years. It was a great
way to get together with other
artist and enjoy an evening of
wine, snacks, laughs and
Anyway, the first yr I
started when my Bday rolled
around I got this from my
Made for just some metal
pieces and things he had laying
Its me painting!
He cut a pic out of a magazine and
applied it here.
So love this.
Another year I got this.
Now is that not some
One year he picked these dogs at
Took them home and painted them
red. Kim, wife, looked at it
and said it looked like a hot dog
so he put mustard on it!
I liked it so he gave it to me.
I love his creative side!
Okay, for now, I will end this
Oh....one more thing...
I got the results to a fibroscan
(liver scan) yesterday...
and apparently I am not
out of the woods yet.
They still picked up minimal
fat in the liver (that is good)
but still showing some hard
places that have not healed..
those places are what go into
cirrhosis of the liver.
I have to do another six
months of a low fat diet,
cutting out carbs and go back
in six months for another scan.
Yep....I was not pleased with
this news. It is better but I was
hoping for more.
Oh....well, life goes on.
Thanks for stopping in,
