Food, Food, and More Food.....

Got your attention, didn't I? LOL.... Trying to stop eating out so much and trying to eat better. Last night I was in the kitchen washing my Halo's off when the phone rang. I knew it was mom or Amber cause basically they are the only two that ever call my land line. It took about the 4th ring before I got to the phone, I answered and mom asked me what I was doing.... my reply, washing off my Halo! LOL Dead silence on her end and I realized how that sounded. I started to laugh then she chuckled. Yep, she knows better! Just like I tell people who realize my birthday is on Valentines day, that I have tried to tell my mom I am a little SWEETHEART but she still don't buy it! My Halo's! So good and tasty but so little I have to have two. Dinner I fixed one day last night. Roasted red taters, carrots, red bell pepper and brussel sprouts! It was great!
Now off the path of eating better.... my addiction since I was a young teen.
Like Lays chips, can't eat just one! I h…

Around the Yard

Saturday Mother Nature was messing with us folks in Nashville.... it was close to 70 degrees, still a bit cool but sunny and pretty. I had a wedding to photograph that evening but I just had to get out around the yard with the camera earlier in the day. Spring is coming up all over...
Tried for yrs to get ivy to grow on my creek bed and never could. A couple of years ago I threw some clippings out and look what I found!

Wow....winter took its toll on this pot. I got this when I was teenage and I have used it forever for plants. Should have remembered to take it in this winter. Thursday for the weekend we had some storms fly through looks like I need to untangle the chime.
The creek that runs right along side my driveway.

Look it even has little fishies.
Over the 21 yrs that I have been here in this house I have noticed changes on the bank. This being one. Used to you saw the tip end of the tubing and you could not see that metal sign sticking out that apparently was buried while …

Chick a Dee and the Squirrel

Just a couple of weeks ago this is what my birdfeeder looked like when I looked out the front door. But Saturday this is how it looked.
At least that is how it looked before this guy found the feeder.

I love this next shot.... grabbing for the saucer and spilling seeds all over the place. But I finally had to run that hog off so this little baby could get to the feed.

So pretty..
Thanks for stopping in, Pam

Decorative Towels and Table Runner

My post are getting harder and harder to come up with.... If nice weather don't come and if I don't get out with my camera soon or start crafting again I am not going to have anything to say.... HAHAHA Yeah, right! My mother finds things that she has put up and to not get rid of them she gives them to me, I think she knows that I will not let somethings go! I got it now, clear her house out and send it all to mine... This is a table runner that my mom made years ago. Not sure of the amount of years but I know its been a long time since she has done stuff like this. Great job mom. These next two are decorative hand towels that I made .....oh lets see, about 29 or 30 yrs ago! Actually since I was never good on the sewing machine my mom made the towels and I embroidered on them. I had totally forgotten about doing these and giving them as gifts.
I gave up embroidery a short time after that and started on cross stitch. Funny that these showed up when they did cause about a week or so ago I posted on FB in my s…

The Ring and Other Stuff

I have a new friend that actually went to the same school as I did, I think she was a couple years younger. Tracy is a sweetie. I posted on FB a month ago about stopping at Kohl's because I was in need, yes in need of a new ring. I love rings and they sell silver ones, with my discount I got in the mail it was not going to be much. But.....I looked and looked and I did not find one that I just had to have. Tracy sent me a private message that she was a silver smith! WOW! Yesterday I got this pic on FB with a message that said' "your ring is ready"! And here it is on me after I picked it up!
She did such an awesome job. I love it! Been playing around with bottles and paint. My daughter likes bottles in different colors so I thought I would make a couple. I did the blue one a couple of weeks ago...but the red orange one I just did.
My birthday continued from Friday till Tuesday. My partners in crime....(joke) took me to lunch.. Thanks Cindy and Deborah. Cindy gave me my gift Friday bu…

Dakota's Birthday and My Birthday Plus Extras

I got Dakota AKA THE KING in August when he was 6 months old. But he was born in Febuary, Amber (my daughter that originally had him) thinks he was born between the 10th and 14th. I split that and went with the 12th. THE KING turned 7 years old on the 12th. Mom sent him a cupcake and I got him his favorite vanilla ice cream. And he chowed down.
LOL.. Now my b-day is on the 14th right after Dakota's, only I am a tad, just a tad bit older than him. I bought myself something for my birthday. A pair of sterling silver earrings made by a new friend of mine, Tracy.
They are pretty cool in the ears! My friend Cindy knows what store I love! So does Theresa cause she got me one of these also and bought me dinner. They are so sweet.
My lovely friend in Ohio, Nancy sent me this. Isn't it beautiful?
I got other stuff also, a metal set of keys (larger) to hang on my wall from Debbie. Got them a couple of weeks ago so I forgot to take a pic of them to post. And my mom got me shoes and…

Baby Shower

One of the dear women I worked with until last July is having her second little boy. So we had a nice shower for her today. Love this cake. Publix....they did a great job. Pred's diaper cake....cute.
Plenty to take home for the little one.

Gotta love that bag.
Happy couple!
So much fun. Congrats Angel and Ben... Thanks for stopping in, Pam
