Hi Ladies!

Dee-Thanks for the prayers!

Daddy's Girl- Happy Fall! My favorite time of year! I'm looking forward to going to Pere Marquette in Illinois in less than 4 weeks now! I will get to see leaves changing colors and everything. Lol!

Princess-Sorry about your computer! Glad Apple will fix it but it's awful to lose pics and stuff. I have Google Plus on my phone and it automatically saves all my pics that I take with my phone. I like that feature knowing I won't lose them. Otherwise, I haven't used Google Plus much.

GGB-So sweet of Barbara and her crew to do your floors. I bet they look great!

Barbara- I remember days that I couldn't wait to get out of the house and now a day at home feels like a luxury. Wish I had more of them too!

I'm with my "hard" patient again. She is hard for lots of reasons. The drive is an hour one way, mom is super picky about everything, even how the laundry is done, the patient is clinically difficult, and is also spoiled and undisciplined. I don't get much down time, even once she is asleep. She is 7 and weighs 76 pounds, so it's physically difficult too. It's a good thing that she has her sweet moments and that she loves me! I actually really like the whole family and get along with even the picky mom really well. They are Christians. It's just still hard. I would prefer to only work this case twice a week and have another easier case close to home. But until they find another night nurse, I'm stuck here 3-4 nights a week.

Blessings,
Stacey

Barbara so glad you could stay home today! Those are nice kinda days!!

Princess got her computer to the Apple Store and it should be fixed in 3 - 5 days. No data retrievable, sadly! But praise the Lord she has a good computer and Apple Care that will replace the hard drive with no cost to her!

Good Night All!

Happy First Day of Spring Everyone!! emoticon It is beautiful weather here. Princess, Sebastian and I went for a walk today! Hurray!! I have to take control and get back into the pattern of exercise and eating right! I don't want my children to have to take care of an ailing mother because she didn't care of herself! That is not fair to them! So I am cracking the whip and getting myself back together!! Thanks Friends for bearing with me!!

Dee yes, it is a lesson hard learned but learned! I wish I understood more about computers!! I left much of that to my DH. I don't know how to back things up but am going to have to get someone to teach me! I think Princess does know how. It is hard doing all we used to do and learning and finding time to do all the things DH did as well.

Good Morning Creative!! (Do you still prefer we do not use your first name?) Yes, this is my biggest complaint about the FB group. We don't post here if we can chat there. Not that there is much chatting there right now either. ;-)
I am glad you are going to get to spend time with your Dear Aunts!!
You are right, computers are such a part of our lives now. I am glad she has a smart phone and can do email and fb so she hasn't totally lost contact with friends.
Glad this time of year gives you many options with your littles.

Hugs to all!

Good Monday morning! Am I the first one on here today???????

The craft show was good. I didn't do as well as last year but I also didn't have as much either. Been filling orders which is a good thing. My scrubbies sold out quickly so next year I will make sure I have plenty for that show. Another show this weekend at my aunts in GA.

Vicki- Hope you are enjoying a fun, relaxing vacation!.

Gali- I did hear from your SIL. I e-mailed her back. Now just waiting to hear how many and what color. Thank you for spreading the word. You sure are doing lots of traveling since you have retired. It is good to stay busy.

Daddysgirl- sorry about Princess's computer. They can be frustrating but useful and when we don't have it we don't know how to act.LOL

Anjay- By no means are you letting anyone down! Sorry you are in so much pain. Keep your head up high and only do what you can do. No one expects any more than that. Will be praying for you my friend. And please keep coming on here to let us know how you are doing so we know how to pray for you.

Dominique- how are you doing?

Faylei- it is letter H and leaves this week! Love this time of year with lots to do with the kiddos.

Well better go get the things out we need to learn. Going to sing "The Leaves Are Falling One By One"

Hello Dear Friends!!
Watching the last few Cake Boss shows of this competition. Yep, Barbara, they are stressful!! ;-) Guess I feel so much what others feel. :-)

Anjay so sorry you are in so much pain. Do what you can do, don't push yourself. You are not letting us down. We are here cheering you on and wanting to help in anyway we can. Please check in so we know how you are doing. We are praying for you!

Dee I have no doubt that your Dad misses your Mom. So sweet of you and Brian to include him in so many meals.

Princess has had a tough weekend. Her hard drive failed yesterday on her computer than is just a bit more than a yr old. I am so thankful she got the extended warranty. They will replace the hard drive but she has lost her pictures and her CM Storybook program that can't be replaced.
;-( Please pray for her. She will take it into the shop tomorrow. So we are sharing a computer again. ;-)

GGB thanks for sharing with us about your floors!! I am sure they are beautiful!! Such a sweet family!

Ali hope you made it to your party. Hope the last assignment went well. Hope DD and her DH got some good bids on their house!! How nice they could spend the weekend with his parents! That had to make it much easier to show!!

Hugs to all!!

We're in the home stretch!! About 20 miles from home!! DH actually has one more job to do after we get home, but it is close to where we are having our adult social tonight. I guess I'm jumping in the shower, sprucing up, and sitting at another Starbucks, then seeing friends. We already paid for tickets, and they are having Italian food catered. My son will be on assignment in Calgary next year. I think they get a lot of snow. Rebekah's house looks amazing. The photographer's camera made the house look huge!! They went to her I laws house for the weekend so that they didn't need to be cleaning up between people looking. With kids, there is always mess everywhere.

Good morning! I haven't posted since last Friday! Wow! I'm caught up again!

That's about how life is feeling right now. Can't quite keep up with everything... Thankfully Mom and I have each other. We both feel the same though. emoticon

I am making some hair bows for a friend who just had her 3rd little girl! Hair bows were a must! LOL Her oldest is a boy, then 3 girls! Ali, I'm sure you can understand!

Autumn at the arboretum starts today! I'm looking forward to going to see all the pumpkins, etc. one day soon!

Happy Saturday!

Hi Friends,
Yesterday was a busy but fun day. Princess, a Friend and I had a girls day out. We took care of errands we each had to do and had lunch out and then did some clothes shopping. I got a couple new outfits and found that blouse to go with my new skirt! Then we had dinner at home and our tatting/craft night.

Ali it is fun seeing the different cakes and desserts Cake Boss and The Next Great Baker competitions. We haven't stopped watching but can only watch one at a time and not before we go to bed. lol It is sad to us that many of the bakers don't try to get along but seem to cause trouble for one another, sadly.

Barbara you must have a lot of stress at work and I so wish you didn't. Working with babies and new moms seems like it could be so much fun. The friend Jennilyn and I went shopping with yesterday was a new born nursery nurse before she retired. She has a miserable manager and they lost 54 nurses in one year then finally they fired the manager.
Yes our children grow up quickly! Hope your new business adventure works well and you can be at home more with them!

Dominique that is very sweet. It reminded me of an older couple in our church a few years ago. He would pray, "Lord, please let me live just one day longer than my DW so I can always take care of her." He died 6 weeks after she did.

Stacey yes thank you for sharing Cake Wrecks with us on FB. You posted some on fb and Princess and I have enjoyed them ever since.
Congrats to Brett. He may not care about a graduation ceremony but he will in years to come. You are right, that accomplishment needs to be celebrated! ;-)
Sorry you have a hard patient to work with this month. Is it just her Mom's expectation that make it so much work or is she a hard patient too?

Vicki hope you don't have any difficulties with the lay over. I didn't see this until later. We were actually out walking Sebastian and I could have watched the skies! ;-) Hope you have a wonderful time and hope you can check in with us while you are gone!

Hugs to all!!

Hi, Ladies!

Dominique-Aww! That was sweet of your DH to say!

Barbara-11!...time flies! My baby is 10. At least you have grandbabies to hold.

Daddy's Girl- I like seeing the pretty cake creations too. I also enjoy the Cake Wrecks FB page. There are some hilarious wrecks. And then on Sunday, they post pretty cakes.

G Ali- Sorry DH is having to put in so many long hours and miles. Hopefully this will be the last for a while. Crazy that such a poor hotel room cost so much! Enjoy the rest of the trip.

Vicki-I bet you are getting excited!

Heidi-Good luck at the show!

Brett will have a formal graduation ceremony in January. He doesn't really care, but I do! I think it's an important milestone memory to have. We are going to take his Senior pics at Pere Marquette next month.

I am working 3 nights a week this month. But all 3 are with my hard patient. I love her, but she is a ton of work! 3 nights with her are more exhausting than 6 with other patients. Please pray they hire another good night nurse. The mom has fired the last 3 the staffing company sent out. She is super hard to please!

Blessings,
Stacey

Hello,
Not much time but I just wanted to share this, yesterday my hubby said to me:

I could live without you.
But I don't want to.
I chose to live with you.

How sweet is THAT?

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...
It's about learning to dance in the rain.

It takes the same amount of energy to live a good life as it does a bad one. Choose wisely. Author unknown

You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you, and allowing that goodness to emerge. Eckhart Tolle

Even if I think I am failing or I'm not good enough, GOD had full confidence in me- and that's all I need.

Happy Thursday!!
Barbara - congrats on Graham wanting to become a Marine. What fine goals your children have. Did Grace get to go to Canada on the business trip?

Daddy's Girl - we haven't watched Cake Boss in awhile. It is pretty stressful, but I just loved seeing the beautiful creations. The competitions were just the opposite, so much catastrophe!! We just had to watch each episode to find out what would happen next. We were surprised to be sent to El Paso too. His boss says there needs to be one more trip before they close it down. I certainly feel photographer's pain. I had an office manager who not only claimed my ideas but also my work right in front of me. She delegated everything and then would proudly say how she had accomplished it all. I think he knew most of the time or at least would have when I left for the another job.

Heidi - hope both craft shows are totally successful. So great for you to go to the one just because your aunt wants too. Hotels are just getting so expensive. Usually, DHs company won't even put him up in a hotel in Odessa or Midland but had no choice because he had so many jobs in that area. It was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in and his company had to pay $260 for one night! It was also supposed to be a non smoking room, but I was choked up all night. DH used to get migraines from that, but thankfully, he didn't. It was a tiny room with a double bed. The hotel here in El Paso is really nice. King size bed, sitting area with couch, refrigerator, big bathroom and $100. Still glad we don't have to pay that. Also had a nice steak dinner with the best sweet potato on the company last night.

Stacey - sorry you have to wait so long to find out about the job. At least you do like where you are. Your boys are doing so well. The rainbow on your way to work last night was a sweet blessing.

Dee - praying for you.

Happy Thursday Everyone!!
Julie you are most welcome for the birthday wishes!! Once again I need to update my prayer requests. All is well with Aunt Izzy and the baby but Photographer and Aunt Izzy have caught nasty colds. I remember how miserable it is to be sick when pregnant.

Dee thank you! Maybe I can keep your sisters straight now!! Goodness all of them sure have had their trials and you as well! How is Dad doing? I may get used to being "alone" but I am not going to get over missing DH. I can only imagine how your Dad feels. Thankfully he has you close by!

Hugs to all and hoping you have a wonderful day!!

Creative glad things are going well. I understand missing the trip with the football team but it will be easier on you to get a good night's sleep before the craft fair. Have a good time next week with your Aunt.

Ali I forgot to say I have watched the Cake Boss competitions. They are so stressful! But then his regular shows are too. I can't watch too many too close together!

Hugs to all!

Good Morning! Almost afternoon! Last day of work for me this week. Tomorrow I will be cleaning house. Friday I will be getting everything to take to the craft fair to set up. I am a bit sad we are not going to Knoxville for football Friday night. But ds is not playing and it is a 5 hour drive to the high school and I would have to come back after the game which would be about 2-3 in the morning and be at the show at 8 AM. Not to mention the cost of gas and hotel because we were going to leave tomorrow to go.

I sold a pumpkin hat last night off ETSY! I think it was due to me being linked to "Handmade Nashville" on FB. The person lives in TN. I have decided to only do shows the next 2 weekends then just check other shows this Fall to possibly do next year. I am getting lots of info on shows from fellow crafters. Along with more exposure.

Barbara- congrats on the magazine exposure. Hopefully it will bring lots of sales for your book. Congrats on your newest Marine!

Thank you for the prayers for this weekend! I did well last year at this show. The one the next weekend I havent done well in about 5 years and I was not going to do it but my aunt really wanted to and I am the only one who could take her so I am going to go. Hopefully we will do well.

Stacey- glad you got more info on MO job. God is good and in His timing you will know answers. It is hard to be patient sometimes.

Vicki- are you getting excited?????? emoticon emoticon

Well, better go feed the kiddos. Then it is outside time and NAP TIME!!!!!!

Hello Friends!
Am getting things back in order here today. Did I think this was going to be a calm week!! LOL Don't thinks so. ;-) But all is well and I am accomplishing things so what more can I ask for?

Dee thanks for explaining about all your sisters. I will try to remember! The sister with cancer is not the one with cancer and young children a few years ago? That is about the first thing I remember when we became friends ... you were caring for young nieces and/or nephews when because their Mom/your sister had cancer.
So is sister doing better since she knows her cancer didn't spread? I still can't imagine losing my eye but at least she doesn't have to worry about cancer somewhere else too!

Julie so glad you DH is home and all is well. Hope he feels better now and has some wonderful memories! Hope you had a wonderful emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Vicki so glad your taxes are done!! Wonderful answers to prayer!! Hoping your neck and arm/shoulder are much better too! So glad you can think about your vacation now!! Time to relax, relax and enjoy this time away! Although traveling is not relaxing in my opinion. Glad you shared your play by play of the week! I could feel the breeze of the sigh all the way to my house! ;-)

Creative hoping and praying this craft fair is a great one!!

Ali hoping you do have a good week of rest and solitude!! I thought DH was going to have to go to West Tx any more. It's a nice vacation for you but not him, but glad he has your company in the evenings!!
Hope your daisies transplant well! Hope DD and DSil's house sells quickly too! Thanks for sharing pics. Am surprised they got so much done to it so quickly! Amazing what you can do when young isn't it?!!

Barbara so glad you were able to spend time helping GGB! Glad it looks great!!
So glad your book was reviewed!! That is wonderful!! Now maybe you can get some good paying speaking engagements!!! Praying for both of your Marines although only one is official.

Stacey thanks for the update on the MO job. Glad he has some time reference so he can relax about it for a bit. Wish his boss would be better. DS Photographer faces the same issue. He gives suggestions to make the work flow better and they are ignored and/or talked down. Then when upper management talks to supervisor he gives the ideas son gave him and gets the credit for it. It sure is a dog eat dog world.
Congrats to Brett!! Will he have an official graduation ceremony?

Ok off to get more caught up on SP teams.

Hugs and blessings to all!

Hi, Ladies!

Sorry I have been MIA lately.

Dee-So glad to hear the good report on your sister!

Barbara-Prayers for Graham. Congrats on getting your book reviewed in a magazine. How exciting! Hope it leads to some sales.

G Ali- Safe travels! I would love to be able to travel with DH and have lots of time to read. DH had a conference at a really nice resort last week and he didn't enjoy it because there was no one to share it with. Maybe next time I can arrange to go!

Teri-Wave at Barbara and GGB for me! I was happy to hear TJ was doing better. Hugs to you!

Vicki-Hang in there! It's almost vacation time! So happy for you!

The job prospect for DH in MO will probably not even be posted until January! So we are "patiently" waiting on God and praying for clear direction. We are still happy here in TX. DH's job continues to be interesting, challenging, and stressful. There are times when he loves it. If his immediate boss was not so awful, I think he could handle the stress better.

I'm so proud of Brett. He is finished with high school! By working at his own pace, he finished the last two credits he needed in less than 4 weeks! He will take community college classes next semester. In the meantime, he is working more on music and working more hours at the food trailer. Btw, his and Brock' s music is now available on iTunes and Spotify. The EP is called Breakthrough and the band name is New Lengths. It's all instrumental...guitar, bass, and drum mostly and pretty mellow. I'm so happy they are past the screamo stage! They wrote, performed, recorded, and produced it all themselves. So proud of them!

Blessings,
Stacey

Glad you stopped in Barbara!! Will be praying for your newest Marine. Teri is in Raleigh tonight and just realized how close she is to you and GGB.

Safe travels GAli.

Dee, at least that is a big relief that the cancer has not spread. Will pray for calming spirits to embrace your sister.

Working too slowly through all I have to do. Too many detours today.

Hugs and Prayers, Vicki

Good evening ladies! I am resting up from our week at GGB's. We worked hard, but it really looks wonderful!

My son Graham took the entrance exam for the Marines today. He is still there, will have his physical tomorrow. Please keep him in your prayers. This is something he really wants and is committed to. Please pray his path is a guided and protected one.

I had my homeschooling book reviewed in the magazine Practical Homeschooling!

Happy birthday to our sept birthday girls!! Hugs, Barbara

God bless you as you write the story of your life, day by day.

Barely keeping up with posts, but things are slowing down for me this week. We are on the road to ALL of West Texas (at least it feels that way!!). Abilene, Midland today. Spending night in Odessa. Then El Paso. 2 nights there. On way back Lubbock and Amarillo. Hope to be home by Saturday afternoon. Probably about 1500 miles plus 16 hour days for DH!! Yesterday was a whirlwind trying to get everything done at home, go to Rebekah's to help, get daisies (it's an hour each way to and back from her house), plant the daisies, make yummy dinner for DH, and get to Bible study by 6. I'm looking forward to a week of books and solitude!!

Daddy's Girl - we have watched a bunch of cake boss. Beautiful creations. Did you watch any of the ones where he held the competitions?? Also, thanks for tip on the flies. When I re-planted the daisies, Rebekah didn't think I had enough sun at the front porch and thought my big round flower bed out a little farther would be better. She grew them all from seed and has had them a few years. Hoping they will do good at my house and we can divide them again for her new house. Her realtor open house is this Friday. They are going to her in laws house for the whole weekend in hopes that lots of people will come while they are gone. I'll post a link when she gets it of the house. My profile is of her roses blooming and her morning glories.

Dee - So glad for the good news that at least the cancer was just in her eye and didnt travel to any of her organs! Still hard to bear that she lost her eye. A lot of responsibility falling to you as the oldest of 6. Praying for your niece and the family.

Vicki - WOO HOO! You deserve some relaxing days!!

Heidi - hoping this craft show is the best ever!!

Happy Tuesday!!

Huge sigh of relief!! Did you hear or feel it!! Lol. Hope I got it all correct but it is done and in the mail so that chapter is closed. Lots of busy work to do but nothing intense like the last week.

Julie, hope you are having a fantastic!!!

Hi Anjay and Dominique!!! Good to see you in here.

I'm glad I have gotten in most days so I don't get behind. Thinking of the fresh ocean air and warm sandy beaches. Can't believe it's actually almost time. Like Julie and others say don't mention it on fb except our LOH private site. We will be gone a full 10 days sho don't want to advertise.

Love you all and thank you for putting up with my play by play this week. It helped me to get through things.

Julie, so glad hubby is home. A day early too!!! emoticon to you!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Preliminary tax return is done. I am going to bed to rest up so I can have a clear head to review it tomorrow and get it mailed out and deliver the State early afternoon. As soon as that is done I can get in vacation mode to get everything done by Thursday. This was my biggest stresser for a long time. My neck and arm are hurting some but only about a 6. With some rest I think I can get back to where I was at.

Love you all so very much, Vicki

Hello Dear Friends!
Ah, Sunday night. Dinner done. Need to do dishes in a little bit but am totally tired but had so much fun!! Fireman is back at training and had a test first thing off the bat. I hope he did well. If he doesn't, he doesn't get his next weekend off. Poor kid is really working hard. Photographer and Aunt Izzy got sick. Aunt Izzy stained home on Friday to rest and hopefully shake it. Photographer was running a low grade fever on Saturday but wanted to carry on with the family activities. What a wonderful time. The girls really worked hard and the house looked fabulous.
Princess has a pot of coffee on and we are watching Cake Boss. Then I am going to do dishes and hit the hay. ;-)

Cupbutter thanks so much for copying what your DGS wrote about you and your DH. How very sweet! Obviously you have been there for him over the years and he knows and appreciates it!! You are blessed, as is he!!

GGB you also have a very good and loving family! How nice of them to lay your new floors!! Sounds lovely.

Barbara thank you for being such a wonderful example for your children by working so hard and caring so much for GGB and GGE. You have a wonderful family.

Ali my Mom loved daisies and we planted some by our front door when she lived here. Flies are really attracted to them so please keep that in mind when you plant them. We translated them farther out in the flower bed away from the front door. They did well and look good there too. I hope yours do well and hope DD's flower beds look fabulous when she is done.
I am enjoying this Autumn weather too and am not looking forward to the 100s again.

Dominique so glad that you had a wonderful birthday celebration too!! Sounds wonderful and agree ,with family all around how can it be anything but great!

Julie sounds like your DH is having a lot of fun! Glad they know their limits and are adjusting their plans. Happy Birthday to you Girl!! ;-) emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
So sorry about your friend. I know you will miss her every time you walk into the co-op. So glad you know you will meet again.

Dee I am so sorry! How awful for the kids. Wish someone could have reached him to help him through his troubles. Praying for your niece and his family.

Vicki praying for you! My!! So much to do!! Glad you are making progress and even better that you have this wonderful vacation to relax and recoup!! Have a marvelous time!!

Hugs to Everyone!!

Took me until 5 AM to get al in balance. Working on Corporation ta return now. Just thinking of how much money I save by doing this myself and thinking of RELAXING for 8 full days very soon!!! This will be my/our longest vacation ever and no driving from place to place and different hotels every night. My family went to California when I was 18. It was supposed to be a two week but my dad could never stay long in one place so we were home in 7 days. LOL

Okay, back to work. I don't see anyone in here yet today so hopefully you are all relaxing on the Lord's Day.

Love and Prayers, Vicki

Good afternoon! Dominique - hey girl! Good to see you on here. To be on here during the same day - that is something else! LOL! Glad your birthday was nice.

Yes, GAli - it is Monday. He will be coming in that day. They have started back today and will spend two nights on the road instead of one. It was just too hard on them to ride 15 hours one day and 12 another. They are going to ride for about 8 hours then stop. They have to stop every 100 miles or so to stretch and get gas. The man who is with him has a bike that can go only about 100 miles before filling up. Hubby's bike can get a little over 200 miles to a tank. It is good for them to stop a lot though.

Please pray for my dad. he is sick. He does not heal very fast anymore.

I am going to a memorial service for my friend who passed away last weekend. She fought her battle well but Jesus decided to take her on home. She is a rock in our homeschool group - meaning she has been with the group since its formation. I love her dearly and know I will see her again one day!

I hope you all have a wonderful day! It is in the 60s here and boy am I loving this!!!!
Blessings,
Julie

GGB - new floors sound wonderful. Fritz will be happier than ever!!

Daddy's Girl - Weather is so wonderful. So glad to have early Fall. But I'm with you that we still could have some 100 degree days still. I'm always afraid to plant pansies until October because of that. Rebekah is digging up her Shasta Daisies to give to me. They are so hardy that hopefully they will replant fine.

Julie - I see you have a birthday on Monday. Will hubby still be gone? Praying for his safety!! And yours too while he is gone!!

Happy weekend all.

Daddy's girl 6 here is what our GS wrote about us.
These two people have been happily married for 55 years. I can honestly say that you two are my inspiration for my entire life. You two are the one thing that has always been there for me no matter what. You both are my biggest fans and always come to everything I do. You cheer me up whenever I see you and you are the music in my life. I love you so much and thank you for everything. Happy Anniversary!

Dominique Happy Bday.

Grammyali my goodness what a big garden you must have. They are a lot of work. Ours is almost done.

Vickie Cold huh. Its cold here as well.

Hugs Cupbutter

Good Evening!!
We just got a Text that DS is on his way home. Praying for safe travels for him. I should take him about 4.5 hrs It gets dark so early now I had to see him drive so far when he is so tired. He must rise at 3:30 each morning and then they exercise for 2 hrs. Lights must be out by 10 PM each night.

Ali that is about what our weather is too. Just lovely! Back yard is so muddy am taking Sebastian out to the front yard but he doesn't want to go out. LOL He is big enough now it is hard for me to make him go somewhere if he doesn't want to. ;-)

Julie I have to update my prayer list. Thanks for keeping these lists for us!!

Vicki so glad you are getting the work done. Enjoy the weather!!

Princess you are welcome!! Hope Fireman is as pleased!! ;-) It will also help us with the waiting!!

Hugs to all and Hope you have a great weekend!!

Howdy!! I am feeling better! Thank you all for your prayers and concern!

The 6# of chicken is cooked!!! It only took an hour. I was really surprised! I had a large cookie sheet for the oven baked chicken and 2 cast iron skillets for the fried chicken. I tasted a few tiny pieces and it was good!!! The oven recipe called for crackers and flour as the coating. I used Panko bread crumbs instead and decided that was good for the fried chicken too. So, same recipe, just different cooking method. Then the 'Cheaper by the Dozen' principle applied there and it went fast!

DB will hopefully be starting his weekend off training any minute! Then he heads this way!!!! We are having a neighbor couple over for coffee and cookies when he arrives. Lots of ya'll are praying for him and we wanted to give the local ones a chance to visit with him. Great idea Mom!!!

We have had some wonderful rain today and the temps are glorious and in the 60's!

Need to run and see what else I can accomplish today.

Happy Friday!!!
Dad's Princess

I have been slowly working on decluttering - yes, that again! But - I realize that I really need to declutter my computer files too! So much stuff on here! I have looked for my special list but have not found it. I need to update it with our newbies. By special list I mean birthdays and anniversaries! I will find it - in fact, I just had an idea of where it is located!

Catching up today at home. I survived a very busy week and had 2 great days off with DH and 2 grands on Wednesday and Thursday. We are trying to grow some Fall tomatoes, beets, and a cabbage. We've never done a fall garden before. Meanwhile I am still getting tons of veggies in my CSA box every 2 weeks. It's fun to figure out what to do with some of it. I got sweet potatoes, onions, scallions, sweet potato greens, Bok Choy, Basil, rainbow Swiss chard, butternut squash, purple bell peppers, cucumber, yellow squash, okra, egg plant, apples, and beets. Whew! I'm making chicken soup for dinner with the Bok Choy. Made it 2 weeks ago and DH loved it. I also made pumpkin custard. I made it 2 weeks ago too, and he requested more. It makes 6 servings, but he loves pumpkin so much, he could eat it every day. I still have pumpkin, pecan muffins left over that he takes to work. I have left over pumpkin still and will make pumpkin soup tomorrow. This is SOUP weather.

Daddy's Girl - it's been raining lightly all day and the temps are in the 60s!! Wonderful!! Also, there is a new tearoom in town near the square. It is owned by a girl in my Bible study. I can't wait to try it out.

Vicki - praying for your sister. Also for your work to get done. I use at least one of the gadgets you brought for Round Robin almost every day. It reminds me to pray for those people that have given me little things.

Cupbutter - Congrats on 55 years ! That is absolutely wonderful and what a great tribute your grandson gave you both. It gave me tears too.

Dominique - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Hello All, We are getting rain!! Ali hope you are too! it is just 72 degrees outside!! Wish we could open windows but ... well I guess I just want too much! I will be grateful for the rain!! ;-)

Vicki so glad DSis made it through the 2nd bone marrow transplant!! What wonderful news!!
So glad you can get work done! Praying it all goes smoothly for you!

Dee you are a wonderful, listening, patient Sister!! So sorry she had to loose her eye. Is the artificial one in place yet? I don't know how quickly they can do that procedure or if it was part of the operation. Please tell her, (if it will help) that others care and are praying for her.

Dominiques Happy Happy Birthday! Hope you will be surrounded with family this weekend!

Good morning! Half day today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And it is FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Baking cakes for dd to decorate for a party tonight. Cleaning out more stuff. Then off to Chattanooga for football. Busy day.
We got the fabric last night for kitchen curtains in dd's friends house. We looked for fabric for the bedroom and living room but couldn't decide. So will go back another day.
Wishing everyone a wonderful Friday and a great weekend. Our neighborhood is having a yard sale tomorrow and then Sunday I have a house warming party for dd's friend. The curtains won't be done by then but she knew that. Will have them next week though.
