Hey Tex! One of my brothers and his kids are in from MI. My other brother and brother in law were suppose to come down too but he was too exhausted from our trip down to MO and work so they stayed in Michigan.

Anyway, won't be on here much till probably Monday. I should be out enjoying this 80 degree weather though.

Relax enjoy the peacefulness.....grab a book and a tall glass of tea and go lay down on a blanket near those beautiful roses of yours.

Hey TG, I was out doing the grocery shopping today, and what a mad house it was! I guess everyone in town decided to do the same thing There was this one annoying little girl maybe around 10 years old that was running around looking in everyone's shopping cart, and I could see people were getting annoyed, and finally one lady said to her "this is not your cart", girl says " I know" , lady says "then stop looking in my cart" And then this lady with three little ones was in front of me in the grocery check out, and the kids were trying to help unload the groceries, but for god sakes they were taking forever, and the person bagging was like in some other zone taking forever Needless to say, I couldnt wait to get out of there. I usually shop on Sundays, but they are closed tomorrow.

I thought I was in trouble when I started for the grocery store. The parking lot was full, but I zoomed right in and didn't even have to wait or a cashier. I had a very busy morning so decided to give myself a treat and have my hands and feet done. I went to a new place (for me) and they were so nice. It is a family owned place and the atmosphere was so much better than the place I've been going. They did the entire routine even putting my hands and feet in the parrafin treatment.

TG, if you really are bored, what about giving me an idea for a salad that is delicious but won't compete with the rest of my menu. I'm having a time with that. Hope you have a wonderful Easter.

Here's a little entertainment for you... Just click on the link to watch the video for "Pay Me My Money Down".

Zydeco Springsteen

I like this a lot... very 'organic'. I hope you like it, too.

Hi Tex, sorry for that.

I am here because I had a tiring week and don't want to go outside and till the garden.

But if you want some fun will posit a question.

Suppose you have just moved to a new place. You have your spices and cookware, but nothing else, foodwise.

And you find your new boss or in-laws are coming for dinner.

Everything is closed except the convenience stores.

Come up with a dinner recipe.

I enjoy doing stuff like that, it makes me go outside the box.

Just a thought. Holiday weekends are always slow.

God bless.

Auntdot, I can't tell from your posts where you live. Is that too personal?

I just finished spending 3 hours reading/editing part of a report - for the umpteenth time, only this time with the sections re-arranged (poorly).

Took a break to go to the bank for the SECOND time today because there were too many people in line the first time and I had ice cream melting in the car.

Still have about 100 or so pages to go for Monday, which I need to finish this weekend so I can start on the really BIG re-arranged section next week.

Good thing we aren't having company tomorrow. About a dozen kids coming over in two hours for a big end-of-Easter-break cookout.
