Tuesday!

First, I want to say thank you all, for the encouraging comments and hugs in the last post! I want this blog to be a positive blog but I also want it to be truthful--and Friday, I was just not having a happy day and I wanted to write about it--and I did and it felt so good to share it with all of you! I also hope for anyone who has gone through what I did, I hope it might help in some way.

Okay---August is close to an end, can you believe it? Fred, is almost ready to come out, I am sure he is tired of having a bag over his head--LOL--it is keeping the dust off.

I am also thinking of new ways to decorate my home for fall--and I can not wait to see what you all do. Baking time is almost here--cookies and so much more--I just adore Fall.

Last night for dinner, I made my own version of Chicken Parmesan---I think it came out really good---I had the camera all ready and can you believe I plated the food and forgot to take a picture---oh, well it was good. Tonight Kevin has a business dinner, so dinner will be very easy for me--I have some left over chicken so the kids will have Chicken and macaroni and cheese..and of course a salad.

I just love my Taste of Home magazines, but I wanted to share something about it---one of my favorite parts in the magazine is the Kitchen makeovers---do you ever like the before picture better? I do!!! LOL--My daughter is forever searching for the toothpick--I cheat, I wait for the answer....SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Okay, today is Tuesday and I am probably just going to stay home and putter--I will fill up the pool and let the kids play in it for awhile this afternoon. OHHH, I almost forgot---I took Alexis's training wheels off her bike over the weekend and she is now riding her *BIG* girl bike without training wheels--YAY!!!

I love Taste of Home too. It is always a treat to get it in the mail. I save mine until after the kids are in bed and then just read and read and read. I think I actually like the "old" Taste of Home better, it seemed much more down-home(does that make sense?"), but I love the recipes. I have enjoyed looking through your blog.

I love fall. I'm ready. I couldn't wait and have been putting the oven on more instead of the grill. I have some small "fall" things like mini loaf pans with pumpkins on them. I have a scarecrow sitting in the corner of my living room. I have an apple/cinnamon candle and a pumpkin candle. Ok I'm rushing it but to me as soon as school starts again ITS FALL

The pool is coming down soon its been chilly come 3pm everyday.
