Yesturday, as some of you may know, I attempted to make red beans and rice for the first time. I was quite anxious about it the whole day wondering about the beans being old and using the frozen ham bone!!
Well, my hubby walked in the door from work and the first thing he said was "It smells like HOME". That to me was such a compliment!! Then to further boost my ego, he circled the kitchen like a buzzard every few minutes tasting, complimenting, tasting, complimenting It took a while for the beans to soften enough, but he probably ate half the pot while the beans were still hard!! After dinner he kissed me on the forehead and thanked me for a amazing dinner
So...thank you all for inspiring me to try new recipes and for giving me the advice I need!!

Watching a Robin bathing in the birdbath made me smile.

I had given Ethan a package of sugar free bubble gum yesterday. Well then, when I went to bed last night, guess what I found stashed under my pillow?

you should get them a little curtain, for god's sakes, elsie...

today, my son's schoolteacher told my wife that the little guy has won over every single teacher in the school. they all talk about him, saying that he's so polite and friendly, and he always greets them with a big hug and a sincere comment that always make them smile. he tells them how pretty they are, and how much he missed them while we were away.

thatsa my boy!
