He knew that my one rule in my kitchen is that "if you DON'T like it, don't say that you do, or you just might get it again". He found out the hard way, telling me that he liked something, and he really didn't and I made it again, because he told me he liked it. LOL!
I actually should look into bottling my recipe and making a living at that. I haven't the faintest idea of how to go about it. Not a clue.....
I've always told my family the same thing, starting when my kids were little. My oldest daughter also found out the hard way. Not from me but from a friend she babysat for. The woman served her liver which she hates but to be polite she said it was good, so the next time she came over, that's what the woman made her again! I just about died laughing at her cause she was only 10 years old at the time. (she wasn't really babysitting, just there to keep the woman's child busy and happy so she could get some work done).
Hopefully we will put the window ac in tomorrow, so by the time I get home from doing my grocery shopping I can come into a cooler home, temp in the home now is about 90 degrees.
I dread when our weather will get that hot again, but they say we're going to have a lot of it this year.
Ruthanne it's good seeing you post again. Even though I'm not in here as much as I used to be, I had noticed you haven't been here in awhile and MISSED you! I'm so glad you and Cheryl are able to talk and encourage one another.
Well tomorrow (Friday) is the big day: Daniel graduates from high school! I've been busy all week getting ready for that. My mother is driving over from GA later today, and my sister and two of her eight children are driving in from VA. The ceremony is at 8 a.m. on Friday (whoever decided on that early hour of the day, I am NOT appreciative!!) and we are having a small get-together for him here at the house afterwards, around noon.
Problem is that I don't know how many people are coming and am about to go crazy trying to figure out how much food to fix. We're thinking maybe 30-35 people (family included). I'm not making a meal, just snacks, but with teens/young adults you'd better have plenty! Between planning food and trying to get the house ready I haven't thought about much else all week long.
For those of you not on Facebook, we got a little kitten last week. Total impulse decision that must have been a moment of temporary insanity on my part & has just confined me to many more years of tending to an animal after I have said so many times recently, "I will NEVER have another pet."
We named him Jellybean because he's solid black, like a licorice jelly bean (my favorite flavor in a jelly bean). He is adorable, a whopping 1-1/2 pounds, and is finally warming up to us. He was from a litter of strays and exhibited feral cat behavior those first several days with us. I had to look it up (feral cats), and the description fit him to a T. But he's acting more kitten-like now and is starting to be lots of fun.
So, that's what's happening here.
Lorrie, have a blast tomorrow. it'll all be just fine I'm sure! Jellybean is wicked cute! I love love love all black kittys. our Silly Sally is all black, fat and black! also from a stray cat...She's a love, but still not liking little people. like Jazzy, but she'll get there...
have a great day everyone...
Bruce has been bored at work a lot recently too. I hope it picks up for both of you soon.
Hello everyone.I just want to put it out I need prayer.I am posting today while my comp.is upping and downing the page!The devil really doesn't want me here.And the worse I feel the harder it is to come chat.I would be pulling my hair out but I need all the hair I have,lol.No bald spots yet.
Next,I accidently found Sweet Baby Rays sauce and Larry liked it so much he would remind me on grocery day not to forget it.That was when he was still eating.
Next,Larry's sister gifted me with 2 kittens.I haven't had much to do with them as they are so skittish but now they love me too.I get such joy from them and spoil them rotten.One is jet black and I tried to re-name them.They were Lulu and Mo.I hate the 3 stooges so I had to get rid of mo but he knew his name so now he is Mojo.And does he have some mojo going on.Lulu is still Lulu.She is so sweet and gentle.Mojo decided one day to wake me up and he threw himself into my face.The side of his body!I'm like Mojo,I am going to kill you!And a couple of days ago Lulu woke me up.She took her paw(no claws) and pushed my chin and when that didn't work she started walking on my pillow and playing with my hair.She is so gentle.I am getting them used to kisses(they didn't like it much but yesterday ,while lying down Mojo came up and put his nose on my lips!Yuck but wow.He gave me a kiss.They listen when I say "no"cause my voice is harder.
Ok enough about them.
My friend Sheila came over and spent the night and my kittens used her as a trampoline .Yes they wake up about 2AM and want to play.I cooked tilapia for the first time since Lar died and baked sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts.First and last meal I have cooked since Larry died.I cook instant stuff for me.Oh,once I made chicken and dressing and had cranberry sauce.It was stove top dressing with onions and celery and extra sage.easy -peasy.
Hi to everyone and I will be back when I wake up.meds are working
Congrats to Daniel and may his life be lived in Gods shadow,.
Thank you for the kind words,Cindy,I won't be a stranger,Love Ruthanne
Skype has to be downloaded and I think everyone would need a camera. There is what is called team speak on the internet. It is like up to 8 people can talk for free. My husband used to talk through team speak to some men that were gaming online. I remember one guy was a ballet or ballerino.
I was so tired today after getting home from shopping, I slept for 3 hours. I feel better now but I am going to take a bath and go back to sleep.
That's quite a long nap, but I'm glad you're feeling better. I'm really tired today as I wasn't able to go to sleep until after 1:30 last night. I hate taking the sleeping pills so have decided that even if I can't sleep, I'm not going to take them anymore. Not unless there's a really important reason that I need to get up early and have enough energy for the next day. That's how I "want" to do it anyway, we'll see how long and how well I hold out
I like that idea for party food! And we even have a subway here - well not in my town but one about 25 minutes away. It's inside our Walmart. I think I'll do that next time Bruce decides to invite people over!
I got upset at myself the first part of this week. The year Bruce had the heart attack we weren't able to pay our real estate taxes on our house, and couldn't the next two years either as I was still trying to catch up on all the bills. We finally got the one year paid off but still had the two to go. The problem was that we just didn't have any "extra" money left after paying our very basic bills. Plus it seemed like I always had a whole pile of overdue doctor and hospital bills to pay as well. Anyway, I eventually got everything paid up to date except the taxes. I paid on them every year, but it didn't seem to do much good because of course we also got a new bill each year. I have to admit that I simply wasn't paying attention to the numbers. It didn't seem like there was any reason to as there was nothing I could do about it anyway, other than what I was doing already. Well between finally paying off our car loan and Bruce getting that last raise at work, it finally gave us a little "extra" money. So I started shoveling it onto the tax bill. But it still didn't go down! I couldn't believe it! Well, I finally looked more closely and realized they were charging me over $300 a month interest on it! No wonder I hadn't made any headway. I'd been paying $200 dollars a month and it was still going up $100 a month! After praying (which I'd been doing for a long time) we decided that the only way we could deal with it would be to take out a personal loan at the bank since their interest was LOTS less, so we applied for it yesterday afternoon. Hopefully we'll find out today whether or not they'll give it to us. I HATE the idea of getting a loan, but couldn't think of any other way to do it. There's no early payment penalty on it though, so if I pay the bank what I was paying the taxes, I should have it paid off fairly soon. (I hope) We don't believe in living on credit and prefer to pay for everything in cash. Once our car loan was paid off we had no intention of ever getting another loan for anything, but here we go again....
I wish I had more energy today though as I have a lot of stuff I need to do and some of it involves using my now tired brain....that probably isn't going to work real well.... Oh well. The Lord knew what I thought needed to be done today, so I figure if I can't do it because I'm too tired, that it must be ok to do it tomorrow instead, since He's the one in control. Well, I'd better get going on the bible study now, you guys all have a great day!
