I am following the the Weather Channel and keeping you all in my prayers.  Please stay safe  XO XO!!!

Monday :)

I did some shopping on Friday.
 I was going to put this post up earlier, but I didn't get a chance.  I did a small grocery trip on Friday.  I wanted to show you my shopping bags :)  I use my own.
 Do you see my creamer??  Publix only carries the small sizes of the holiday creamer....Walmart has the big ones.  I do my small shopping at Publix and my big shopping at Walmart and Costco.  Lots of veggies.  Dog food, and some Pringles......I also needed some more coffee...I drink A LOT of coffee.
 I had a very busy weekend......
I went shopping for my Step daughter, for her baby shower, which was on Sunday.  Very nice Baby Shower......I wanted to buy everything I saw at the store for the baby...LOL.

I am also oragnizing my closet....Remember my closet....I have never in my life seen a closet as big as this...LOL. My closet here is bigger than my first apartment.  So I am really trying to oraganize it and make it look nice.  There is no reason for anything to be smooshed anywhere, there is lots of room.

On Sunday, I cooked a roast in the crockpot.....Saturday we had Grilled London Broil, aspargus and butter beans....on Friday I made breaded pork and chicken strips with fried rice..and I made salads to go with my dinners :)

My husband took charge of the pumpkin carving...YaY!  The kids helped of course.

It is very cold and windy here, it is 45 degrees right now as I type, brrrrrr.

 We just got home from shopping...I snapped these pictures of him fully dressed..LOL...once we walk in the door, shirt comes off.
 Always a sonic shirt on when we do get dressed :)
Okay, that's enough...LOL....Bye, Mom ;)

Dinner pics :)

 Last night's dinner we had Sausage, butter beans that I soaked and then cooked all day in the crockpot with hamhocks...I also made greens and homemade dinner rolls.  As always I served it with a green salad......

Pictures on the wall.....

My SIL gave me some really pretty pictures.  I hung them up and they really look nice :)  I try so hard to be a good decorator, but I think I may lack in that department.  I know what I like.  I like warm cozy tones, and I like the country theme of things.  I am in no way into abstract art or contemporary...I like things dark and cozy....LOL.

 Pictures in my bathroom above my tub.  They are pretty pictures of bathrooms, so I figured they belong in a bathroom :)
 Pictures between two windows in my bedroom
 Pictures in the hallway going down the stairs to the basement
The shelf above the fireplace, which I can not wait to use..I love fireplaces :)

Do you see that picture of us?  As soon as I get my new teeth, I am planning on getting a new family picture done :)

Happy Tuesday!
50 degrees outside right now :)

I had my camera in the kitchen with me, but can you believe, I kept forgetting to snap pictures of my dinners...OOPS!

This one dinner we had that I did remember to take a picture of.  I took fresh broccoli and mushrooms and sauteed them in butter with a little salt and pepper.  I did blanch the broccoli first for a bout 5 minutes.

Along with the veggies, I made meatloaf and mashed potatoes  with mushroom gravy.  I also served it with a fresh green salad (of course..LOL)

We also had grilled steak and grilled corn and asparagus one night.  Baked chicken with carrots, we ate out one night, and I can't remember the rest...brain freeze...LOL....

Also, I am on facebook daily...if you are a frequent reader, friend me and we can keep in touch on facebook....sometimes it is easier to make a post there than it is here.

I love my blog and I will always write here, I want one day for my kids to be able to have this.  I would have loved to have something like this from my mother.....I so wish I had known her better!  Her birthday was this past week, and I hope she celebrated in heaven:)


I have lots to do today.  We played a lot this weekend, so now, I have to get some things done around the house :)  I got a new cover for my ironing board, YaY!!  I also got some more yarn, I am determined to finish that afghan I am making.

The weather here has been lovely, and I love seeing how all the houses in the neighborhood decorated for Fall, beautiful!

Have a great day !!

Time for some Pumpkin Spice coffee..YaY!!!

Along with salad, for dinner last night we had baked chicken with Emeril's Seasoning, stuffing and steamed carrots

Here is a picture of today, outside my kitchen door, pretty day :)

Tonight's dinner will be something with pork..I will post about it tomorrow :)

This is last nights dinner.
We had Italian sausage, cheesy potatoes, lima beans and a salad:)

It was chilly this morning!  I had to drive Tony to work this morning, early!  It was cold, I had the heat on in the car, hot coffee....and my thermals on...LOL.  He likes to go to Chik-fil-A for breakfast before he starts work.  He is very close to reaching his goal financially to get his car.  Once he hits his goal we are going to give him $500.00 to add to his car fund.
I hope that since he is working for his car he will appreciate it more.  When I turned 18 my father bought me a brand new mustang...BIG MISTAKE!!  I am still appoligizing to this day for I what I put my Dad through with that car.......It is one of those things, I often pray about, but the guilt is big...and, oh boy, to try and Let Go, let God!!!!

I am not a big eater.  I may cook a lot, but I don't eat a lot. I eat little meals during the day. I love salads....SOOOOOO, I decided I also needed to change it up a bit, I was going to make granola, but I saw this at the store and decided to buy it...I sprinkle it on my yogurt...something a little different from salad.

 Also, now that it is getting chilly, I bought some oatmeal for the kids....two different variety packs.  They can try each one and decide what they like.

Along with salad, I will also eat bread with some cheese on it.  I don't eat much meat if any.....before I was married, I was a tofu kind a girl...LOL.....I am all about veggies.  I also juice a lot.

I just wanted to share a few things I bought at the grocery store:)

Tonight's dinner is Italian sausage:)

Purple Splendor and Honey Gold potatoes!

 If you all have been reading my blog for awhile, you all know I am all about produce!  I have to have a fully stocked kitchen with all sorts and fruits and veggies.  Also, with 2 guinea girls, we go through a lot of veggies.
 I peeled the potatoes just around the middle..and then I boiled them until tender, about 25 minutes, and then I sauted them in butter with salt and pepper :)

Wontons with cream cheese :)

I want to thank you all for visiting my blog.  I enjoy the comments very much, they are like the icing on the cake.  I just want to say to some that are sending me comments about promoting my blog, my answer is no.  I will not sell anything on my blog, I will not have ads on my blog, I will not have guest posts from people I know nothing about promoting something.  Everything I post about or promote is solely because I like it, I get nothing for it.  Once blogs go in that direction they have lost that special something that drew me to their blog in the first place.  One blog is all about links, she never posts anything without promoting something and wanting every one to click on the ads...Good for them, but not for me:)

Some blogs are even like highschool, you know they all go have even came upon bully blogs....

Anyway, I love all my visitors, and most everyone that comments have been the same commenters for years..even certain anonymous comments are from the same are all so sweet XO XO :)


Are you all ready for fall?  Have you gotten your pumpkins yet..they are $3.88 at Walmart right now!

 I took some pictures while we were out the other day.  My husband is driving, so it was safe:)
Look at this old house above, there must be so much history there...I am sure years ago, there was a happy little family living there.
 Georgia, they have hanging stop lights, pretty neat, huh?
I took that picture for that old coca-cola sign...has anyone seen that building :)  There is history there.
Can you see in the top right corner the water mill?  Reminds of Little house on the Prairie..I wish I could have gotten a better picture of that.

Gas :)

This is a picture of a gas station we drove by the other day.  I am putting it on my blog to keep a years from now, I can look back and see how much gas was :)

I may say to myself, WOW!!  that was cheap...LOL

Happy Saturday :)

My husband is over at my MIL's this morning, finishing her deck :) SOOOOO, I am going to clean the house from top to bottom...LOL.  I have 5 bathrooms to wipe down, and two sets of stairs to vacuum and a dishwasher to unload and breakfast dishes to wash......the list is never ending, but I love it!!!  I took out Italian sausage for dinner, I will let you know what I come up with :)  Happy Saturday!

Thursday :)

Fresh Green Beans :)

Clean the beans and snap the ends off

 Boil in water for 3-5 minutes, I did 4 minutes, a happy middle..LOL

 Get your ice bath ready while they boil

After 4 minutes, put the beans in the ice bath to halt the cooking:)

 In a skillet melt some butter

 Add the beans and I used salt and pepper to season:) Cook for a few minutes, not too long....taste them to see if they are done to your liking.....
..a little garlic would probably be good too

 I served the beans with pork chops

 a salad

 I also boiled some eggs to crumble on the salad, along with some tomatoes and cheese:)

I also served it with augratin potatoes, the picture didn't come out that great..but the potatoes were good :)

Georgia Fair :)

We went to the fair on Saturday, and it was a really nice time :)

It was overcast, so it was not hot at all.  Kevin enjoyed the rides.

The food was EXPENSIVE!!!LOL
Kevin won Little K a Sonic stuffed animal.  My son has an obsession with Sonic the Hedgehog :)

Me, in the mirror...LOL
