Pickles!

I love all kinds of pickles. Sweet pickles. Sour pickles. Tart pickles. Pickles. All kinds of pickles! 

Fuzzy Slippers are Good For the Soles!

I had a surprise package show up to my front door awhile back and it was from MtnMan, which  happens to also be his front door. But, that is besides the point, this package was for me and inside was a pair of nice, fuzzy slippers that could be worn in public, but I choose to treat them as house slippers and they do my feet good! Sometimes I even wear them outside when I give Abby her daily brushing and they keep my feet warm when it is snowing! That was way more information than any of you needed, or probably even wanted, but seriously, these slippers are good for the soles! Thank you, Beebs!

Home Cook

I never knew I would find joy in cooking, but here I am, cooking and always looking for new recipes and different foods to try. Last month I received a new cookbook, thanks to Michael, and I cannot wait to try my hand at some non-crockpot dishes. With that said, I wonder if some of the casseroles and oven bakes would turn out in the slow cooker. I have yet to put any of the recipe’s from this cookbook to the test though because I find myself busy right now, with not much time to spend in the kitchen.

Michael, thank you so much for being so thoughtful and generous in sending a cookbook; one that I was about to buy myself. I appreciate you  more than you realize.

 

Happy Holidays

Okay, bare with me, please. I never thought I would be anything short of a grinch. It was not that I didn’t want you all to enjoy your holidays, but I didn’t see what the big hub bub was all about. And, in reality, I still don’t, but I do appreciate the simple things, such as putting up a tree. We even have a wreath for our door, thanks to Dawn Marie! That will be as much decorating that will get done at our house, but I am actually looking forward to going to cut down a tree on Saturday. It is something that we could have easily blown off, but I think it will be sweet to see Abby staring at the lights and hopefully not trying to eat the branches of pine needles, or step through the sticky sap that drips all over the skirt. Either way, I am not the grinch I once was, but I also feel that the change in my #newbeginnings deserves some holiday cheer. With that said, I live with a grinch now, and I am okay with that. He lost his scrooge and I gained one. I am embracing that with much love! lol. 

Also, I am still not big on holiday songs, or christmas lights before December 1st. So, keep that in mind. Thank you. 

 

Argyles, Argyles, Argyles . . .

. . . is there such a thing as too many argyles? The answer is no, no there is not! There is just something about argyles that make my toes happy! So, needless to say, I was quite excited to open a surprise package from Bubba to find over-the-knee argyles!!! They have a splash of red, which makes them different than all of my other pairs of diamond patterned socks! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Now the problem I have is trying not to wear them once a week because as soon as they are washed and back in the drawer, I am wanting to slip into them for a happy day spent in argyles garb!

The Last PG Photo . . .

I would like to get some interaction back on this blog, but I need you all to play along. What is the last PG photo you took on your phone? Yes, I am specifically asking for PG so that everyone will enjoy this thread… or, at least, that is my hope.

Of course, mine is of Abigail. 

Abby loves riding with her head out the window…

Shocking . . .

I am just as gobsmacked as you are about to be, but I am going to buy some holiday decorations for the tree this year.

 

Traditions and Memories

With Thanksgiving behind us, and the Christmas season still to come, I would like to know what is the one tradition that you enjoy because it is full of memories.

For me, it would be driving around to look at all of the lights. When I was a kid Dad would take us to Johnson City to see the courthouse lit up. That was 35 years ago, and today the entire town is lit up into a winter wonderland. It used to be a small town event, with just the locals enjoying in awe, and now people from all over make that drive to see full trees lit up from roots to top of branches, thanks to the electric company. Although, I am not a fan of the crowds, it is still an amazing sight to see. I still find myself enjoying a drive about town to look at holiday lights, even in my new surroundings. It makes me smile to remember what it was like as a kid.

Thanksgiving is For Sharing

What is the one thing that you did over the Thanksgiving week that you enjoyed? Now, I do realize this excludes those who are not from the US, so let’s extend that to everyone. What did you do this past week that made you smile?

For me, it is simple. I woke up with MtnMan and got a lot of love from Abby, before going to his sisters house for an amazing dinner with family. It was low key, quiet and perfect.
