Happy Friday!

Straightened and cleaned the refrigerator today.
Now, remember, I have another fridge in the basement, so if you don't see something you like, it may be in the other fridge...LOL.

I had some fruit that wasn't getting eaten fast enough, so instead of letting it go bad, I froze some.  I have some blueberries and strawberries and grapes.  Perfect for smoothies.

Daddy is the one that buys the "fun" food.....:)

Here is my fruit drawer...I love to use lemons in my makes everything taste better :)

It is a 3 day weekend and I am thrilled.  Everyone will be safe and sound at home with me~~~YaY!!!

New bag!

We did a "BIG" shopping at Walamart on Saturday and they had these bags on clearance..for $, yes, I will take one...LOL.  I love bags and purses...and this is perfect for trips to the pool.....long days out, over nights...etc...I just like it and couldn't pass up $3.00 :)

Go to Walmart and get one :)

Cloudy Thursday :)

Good Morning!
This is a picture out my front door.  Dark and Cloudy.

This is a picture from my back door.  That is part of our deck.

It is supposed to rain today.

I have already had a battle with ants this morning.  You think you got rid of them, and then BAM, they show up in the oddest places.  They were coming out of a tiny hole from the bathroom from Kevin's room.....The other morning they were just scattered all over Tony's room.  The thing about these ants, is they BITE.  The bite isn't so bad, but it itches a lot after wards.  I know...I have been bitten 4 times now....and counting....LOL.  My kitchen is completely ant proofed...everything is in airtight containers....and such......

Stay Safe!

I am following The Weather Channel, and I am praying for everyone's safety!  I was living in Georgia back when Katrina hit....oh, I remember those images:(  My dear friend at the time, was driving across country and got caught in it...and there was no gas for him anywhere......

Also, I had to pick up Tony from work today and it was POURING rain...You all know I am not a fan of driving, and this really tested me today...I did it though.  ::::whew::::

I don't think I will be sleeping much tonight following the weather......Please everyone stay as safe as you can !!!!!

Wednesday !

  It is the middle of the week, and I can already feel the change in the weather.  The mornings are starting to be cool, with warm afternoons.  The humidity has lightened up a lot.  At night you can hear the symphony of all the bugs and frogs at night.  Fall is coming and I am so thrilled to be able to enjoy it here in Georgia.  It sometimes seems surreal to me when I look at the map and see where I was and see where I am now.  Never in my dreams when I was younger did I think Georgia was a place I would end up...LOL.  I love Cali, don't get me wrong, it will always have a very special place in my heart and it is missed by all of us.....BUT, we do love it here so much. 

I made extra chicken last night for dinner, so I would have some leftovers for tonight's dinner, I am going to make the famous Chicken Bwak-Bwak....It is a simple dish of shredded chicken and egg noodles..simple but very good.

I also picked up some hamhocks, so I am going to soak some beans for tomorrows dinner and add the hamhocks for flavor.

I bought some big Ball Jars to use in my pantry.  I am really trying to organize it in a good way.  Easy to see things and get to things.

I am also learning my way around here...I am not a fan of driving and I would rather not be the driver, but you have to do what you have to do.  I like my little circle here...the store, school and Tony's work are all around my neighborhood....the only thing I don't like is going on Highway 41 but I have to get to certain places so I have to use that road..... I do have a GPS that helps me tremendously:)

The Holidays are just around the corner and Fred will be making his appearance VERY soon...Yay!!!

Well, time for another cup of coffee...Have a wonderful day xox

Sometimes it is very hard to forgive.  Your heart needs to forgive to go on and be happy.  Forgiving does not mean you have to let that person back in your life...but it releases you from the pain and bitterness that can build up.   I am sure we all have people in our lives that have hurt us.  I tend to forgive and move on......

If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all. Rom 12:18

Pastor Rick once told me, that some people, God knows, can not be reconciled with, they will twist everything you say.  Forgive them, but it is also okay to avoid them too :)

I thought this was cute :)


(Photo courtesy of Google)

I'm feeling something creeping on...LOL.....I was starting to feel a little sick last night and this morning, I was feeling it a little stronger. So, I made a super duper juice.  It has carrots, celery, apple and garlic.....hopefully it will kick it out. 
I just scrubbed the shower in our bathroom...and I am listening to court tv as I clean...I just find these trials fascinating.

I think I am going to pull out chicken for tonight's dinner.

Last night, we had pork, buttery garlic noodles, blacked eyed peas and peppers, and of course a salad :)

Hi there.  I can't remember if I mentioned that the first weekend in August, I went to my husband's banquet dinner....we stayed at a very nice hotel.  When we lived in Cali, I flew out to Georgia every other year for of the best parts of the evening is a blogger I met here through blog land also attends these dinners with her is so nice to meet up with her and her family and get to talk :)

It was exciting and fun.  My Fil and Mil came over and watched the kids for us.
It seems that not a day goes by with out a little rain...I LOVE IT!!!  I woke up last night to the sound of thunder:)

Not a fan of having to drive in it, but love to be home and watch it :)

Last night's dinner was leftover tacos and chicken enchiladas.  On Sunday we had a birthday dinner for my MIL and she requested tacos..we had tons of leftovers so that is what we had last night too.

Tonight I took out pork chops.

I found a recipe for chicken spaghetti after I saw it on the Food Network.  The Pioneer Woman made it..Love her blog and her show.  I am going to make this, but I am going to tweak the recipe a bit.  Instead of using cream soups I will make my own cream sauce.

I have a new TIVO since the lightening destroyed my last box...things like that don't happen in Cali...LOL.  It took the cable man 3 hours to hook it up.  For those of you that aren't familiar with TIVO, it is like a DVR.  BUT, after a while it gets to "know" you and starts recording shows it thinks you might like.  The other day it recorded a show about trucks...LOL.....HMMMMM.  BUT, it also recorded an episode of Dr. Quinn :)  I love my new TIVO.
