Spaghetti Day!



Today is Tuesday, and it is the first official day of Fall :)
I am making pasta in a crockpot today .
I will also make a salad to go with it.  I may have to stop real quick at the store for lettuce.  With the Guinea Girl, Juicing, sandwiches and salads we go through A LOT of lettuce!

My husband and I had a date night in July (My Birthday) and he took me to LongHorn's Steakhouse.  I ordered the BEST salad..it was a grilled watermelon served atop a kale and cheese salad, with a really good balsamic vinaigrette..

I have some pictures of the Fall decorations I have been slowly putting up.....Fred of course is out.  He is always the first to come out, he has seniority, ya know...LOL.  I will make a picture post next...stay tuned!  XO

Rainbow :)

This beautiful rainbow made it's appearance outside my front door on September 11th :)  My son came running to me, saying, "Mama, LOOK, LOOK!!!!"  It was quite breathtaking, and I will forever think of God's enduring promise to us, whenever I see these beautiful rainbows :)

10:29 p.m. <~~~~Love..LOL

At 10:29 p.m. it is officially when Fall begins, YaY!!!
I love Fall....I love the leaves changing, the sun setting earlier, the cooler air, pumpkins, comfort food...everything!

We just had a Fall Break, no school or work for all of last week..it was wonderful!
I really enjoy writing in my blog, and I snap pictures all day to put here...but time has a way of evading me.  I do find it easier to write on the kitchen computer, considering I am in the kitchen most of the time.

So tomorrow, I promise, I new post is going up, with pictures :)

Have a wonderful day and remember at 10:29, Fall begins!!  XO XO

Monday's Thought!

What has happened to some people, and mothers especially.  Where is the compassion.  When did a peanut butter sandwich become more important than a child's life??? 
Please help me understand this?

I don't get it, I really don't get it :(

Chicken and Mushroom Casserole!

Good Morning!!!
This is a Chicken and Mushroom Casserole I made for dinner this week :)  Very simple.
I layered the bottom of the casserole dish with cuped potatoes and sliced onion. Mixed in cream of mushroom soup...use whatever you like canned or homemade soup mix. Place chicken breasts over that mixture.  I cut them in half.  Put a whole carton of mushrooms over that, covered with foil and baked it until done....I took it out of the oven and covered it with Cheddar cheese...cheddar is my husband's favorite, but you can use any kind of cheese..I think swiss would be really good! After you put the cheese on you can put it back in the oven for a few minutes..I just put it on the counter and covered it back up with foil..and the cheese melted..as I served the salad :)




 
Today is Thursday, and it is very cloudy outside, it is supposed to rain. Here is a picture of what it looks like right now ~~~~>




 I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Georgia weather..I can't even express how much more happier I am here rather than California!

Here is the start of my Fall decor..trust me, this is just the beginning...LOL.
  

This is a little sign I have right by my front door.  I really want to have one made, like out of wood.  This sign does help a lot..it is a gentle reminder to visiters.
 You can also catch me on Facebook...Friend me, just let me know, you are a reader..I would love to get to know you, too :)  I am also on Instagram posting pictures daily!  The links are right to the side of this post, in the sidebar at the top~~~~~~~>

Have a great Day....Dinner will be Italian tonight..Pasta:)

Thursday!

Well, I went into my office all ready to do a Blog post, and for some reason my computer is acting funny.  I got the dreaded Blue Screen yesterday and Kevin restored my computer.  Then today it was acting all jumbled.  I just reinstalled my virus protection and ran that, so hopefully that helps..I don't know..I am not that computer savvy!
So now, I am in the kitchen using that computer...the only thing about this computer is I don't have anything on it...I just use it to watch my beloved You Tube Vlogs and also my DVD's like Little House on the Prairie while I am in the kitchen doing my many different kitchen preps!
My kids have been in school since August 4th, it isn't easy, letting go, especially my little boy who is anaphylactic to nuts....it is pretty scary!  We are learning daily how to navigate this nut filled world, and let me tell you, it is TOUGH!!!  Nuts are in EVERYTHING, not only food items but non food items as well, such as lotions, makeup, shampoo, fabric sheets, firewood, lawn treatments...so many things, the list goes on.
My oldest son, Tony is back home and he is now working with Kevin again.  It is nice having him back.  I don't care if my kids are 2 or 22 they are still my baby :)<~~~I am sure all you Mamas can relate!
Last night's dinner I made baked chicken, steamed rice, string beans and everyone had salad :)  Avocados are a must!
Tonight I took out ground beef so dinner will be something beefy...LOL.

I really like our new home, I absolutely LOVE the neighborhood.  It is right next to our old neighborhood, but it is a lot more cozier...it is also gated, which is nice!  I live right next to a cow pasture too...can you believe it???...LOL..I get to drive by my beloved cows everyday...I love seeing the babies with their mamas.  I don't eat any meat, and just couldn't dream of eating one those sweet animals.  The rest of my family eats meat, and I don't say a word, it is their choice.  I just voice it on my blog, well..because I can...LOL.

It is supposed to be 91 degrees today, but the heat doesn't seem to bother me, the older I get, the colder I always am...I tend to wear long sleeves everyday, even over my sundresses....I just can never warm up.  I have been to the doctor and I am in perfect health...just always cold.

Alexis got her bottom braces put on this week, and then they tightened her upper braces, lets just say, her poor mouth hurts.  I took her soup to school one day because the poor thing couldn't chew.  I live right next to the school which is right next to the cow pasture...LOL.
Have a great Thursday, and this weekend is a 3 day weekend...WooHoooo!!!

Daily Planner

This is what my daily planner looks like that I use.  I love it!  It is so fun.  I use the time I am in the car line to update it.

Also, I made this calendar and hung it on my office door, so Kevin can help me count down days :)  It is almost Fall, you all...LOL  :)

Fall Is Coming :)



Two of my Favorite things put together, Sunflowers and Scarecrows :)

This cutie was Walmart for .98 cents :)

It is almost time for Fred to make his appearance!
