What's this in my oatmeal?

Sunday, June 01, 2008

Looks like I had a very good week. Weight stayed the same, 1 Lbs. under goal. Oh well I'll get back to goal when I can eat on both sides of my mouth because of the lost crown, I will get it fixed next week. Had more rain, had a total of 4.3 " in May, lucky to have everything planted. The heat units are finally starting to come.
GLBH handed me what I thought was the can of cinnamon proceeded to dump some on my oatmeal, noticed it was black, what's this, why it's pepper. I tasted it and didn't taste too bad so ate it. Goes back to my theory, you can't make oatmeal taste any worse. It shows we men just eat anything the GLBH puts in front of us. OK you men out there, be careful what your wife puts in front of you.
This wasn't as bad as a friend of mind who was brushing his teeth and hollered at his BH, what in the ???? kind of tooth paste did you buy me this taste like ????, she come arunning and looks and says you duff, you garbed the Preparation H! or the time his neighbor ate what he thought was hard cookies left on the counter, when his wife came home from work said honey those were the hardest cookies you've ever baked, she said what cookies, I never baked any, they were dog biscuits, he started reading the label after that.
Have a good week and will see you in church. Life is great!

  Thanks for the laugh this morning. I have relatives who farm in NOrthern Illinois (Zion area).
If you can eat oatmeal with pepper on it, you can probably stand pretty much anything on it!
Hope your crops are still OK through this wierd weather. Someone was saying that with the tornados and floods she wasn't sure whether to go to the basement or the roof.

    u are to funny! I guess your teeth wear comfortable for hours right! I am not a huge oatmeal person either. However, I like it when I add bananas, brown sugar, and sometimes walnuts.

    Oh, come on. Oatmeal isn't that bad. Try the instant stuff; it tastes better. Add maple syrup, brown sugar, cinnamon, or vanilla to it - those are some of my favorites. Oh, and enough milk to make it creamy instead of globby - that texture thing is important too.

    Yeah, getting older is full of amusing incidents. You have to blog them quickly before you forget 'em, though! You don't like the taste of Oatmeal? How do yo serve it? We have a teaspoon of sugar and pour some cold milk on the top. Mustn't forget the right amount of salt, too. Tastes great to me! I'm a Porridge fanatic emoticon You must be getting all OUR rain. We've had hardly any! Took Buster for a walk in the hills yesterday and it was like Death Valley up there! Weird. Have a great week Skeeter, glad to hear you're still successfully maintaining! Well done!

The Home Of The Brave!

Sunday, May 25, 2008

Finished drilling neighbors beans, sprayed all corn 1st. time and planted more sweetcorn and put out tomato plants this week and weight stayed the same. All this seems pale compared to the sacrifice our Brave Men and Women have and are doing for our Great Country's safety. Let us remember them daily in our prayers. See you in church? Skeeter

    Skeeter, Bless you for reminding us about our warriors in service to our country! I wish the politicians were as brave in holding our country above their lust for power!
I admire you for your farming skills. I have lived in the suberbs all my life and when I was in my 20s my hubby and I bought a piece of land to raise horses and grow our kids. we have a whole acre and a half!! not much to a farmer but a LOT to city folk. we are down to two horses now but have had as many as 5 at one time. LOVE having animals and gardening but in So. CAlifornia, there isn't much rain so gardening is a challenge!
Thank you for your blog, Jerri

Life is Great!

Sunday, May 18, 2008

Been a good week finished drilling my beans last night. The sun is shinning, even though it's cold. The bad news I lost a crown this week, will have to get a new one. Dr. said it would cost around $1000, I told him no big deal I'll just put the old one under my pillow and the money will be there.
More good news, after feeding at the trough last weekend actually lost 1 lbs. in the two weeks. You newbies, there's a lesson in that. You can overindulge on occasion's but get right back on the good saddle you learned on Sparks.
Life has been very good to me and I hope with you likewise.

    So you still believe in the tooth fairy??LOL
Yes, a person can overindulge but you have to learn it's only once in a great while. And don't make a habit of it. It's a bad habit that Spark help break--remember?

    Hi Skeeter, congrats on the loss (and the sunshine at last!). I've also found that the occasional blow-out isn't a bad thing (in fact I think it might even help if you've been on reduced calories for a long time - like a kick in the rear for your metabolism). Your last blog had me Googling the Studebaker family (I'm a geek), very interesting story. I'd heard of the cars of course, but I didn't know anything about the people. Poor Heinrich emoticon Have a great week, Skeeter - hope the sunshine lasts for you!

The Hot Pink Dress, Never Too Old To get Hit On!

Wednesday, May 14, 2008

Will try for the 3rd. time.
Finally have some time to write about our 1st/GS weekend wedding.It was just great, very beautiful, outdoors, Lord was smiling down on us weather wise, day before was cold and overcast, day afterwindy,cold and much rain. Bride was soo beautiful, glad to have her in our"strange" Warner family. For some of you who remember the Studebaker car and wagon maker it was held at what was his home. Completed in 1889 at a cost of $250.000, now that was real money back then. Quite a mansion, the reception was held indoors, I must mention how great the BM's looked, especially our GD ASHWARN22, she's some looker, don't know where she gets all the good looks, wait a minute, it must come from me always preaching to my Sons to marry up! You should see her Mom, our DILshe sure looked splendid as usual. Now that brings me to my GLBH, she wore that HOT PINK number that I might have mentioned in a previous blog; she's some looker too. A 25 year old Groomsman must have thought so too, the way he kept flirting with her. After he left my Son, father of the Groom, said Mom, do you realize he was hitting on you? She said no, he couldn't be doing that, I guess that happens when you just celebrate a birthday this past week. I can't reveal which one but it's a biggie! She is really something special and a keeper! Remember what I said about marrying up!
If you think I'm going to weigh after a weekend like that your crazy, my Mommy never raised no dummy!
What a great life and loving family, I have!
Have a great week!

    Sounds a lot like my cousin's wedding this weekend. Beautiful weather, just a bit windy, it was outside under a tent right in front of a lake. Outdoor weddings are great!

    Your blog is always a HOOT! I am so lucky to have you as my baby brother. I too am happy you had a great weekend & all went well. Also enjoyed our breakfast together this morning, we are so fortunate. I still do not know where your sense of humor came from had to be the Warner's! My oldest brother & I did not get any of it! Oh well we have our strong points also -so not complaining. I finally figured out how to add friends to my spark page. I am also a slow leaner! Anne emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Whenever I read your blog I can't help smiling, what a sweetie you are. Good advice to your Sons, lol. I don't know if you have the same expression in America but we call that "punching above your weight" here! I bet you're a hoot in real life, Skeeter. Your family must be as proud of you, as you are of them. Glad to hear you had a good time at the wedding, best wishes to the happy couple. emoticon

    Skeeter, Don't you just cherish those family times. They are the best. My oldest GD just had her 6th grade band and chorus concert Monday night. It was only 30 minutes long, but it was worth the 2 hour drive to get there. And, of course, we got back to their house in time to see the rest of the Cubs game. My oldest GD somehow is a White Sox fan. I don't understand that, but I love her anyway. Linda
