Last night I decided that I have worked too hard this past 10.5 months to chuck it all while DH is in the hospital. So, I cooked up 2 packages of frozen veggies and ate a portion of each and put the rest in the fridge. This morning bef... Read more

Planting Onions! I do not eat onions!! I have never liked them. But with Ray's knee shot I had to help him plant his onions. 100+ of them, Vidalia Onions! Bend down and shove an onion in the ground, straighten up, take one step... Read more
