Finally, we have a "Help I have fallen" system that will actually work. Up to now I have had to call on my cell phone. They in turn have to connect me to the Boston 911 line. Precious seconds lost.

I ALWAYS want them but can't get them. I think there's a reason for that! LOL

All this talk of coconut reminds me I have to make some cookies to use up mine. DH heard that coconut is good for you, so he bought 2 bags of sweetened coconut, then he remembered he doesn't like coconut. So now I will use it up making cookies he doesn't like.

She did such a good job that I have a lot to do today. So I took one before I even started. I will take a second one two hours later. What I love about taking them is the effect they have on me. I get super energized and can work for hours. No naps needed.

It's really good popcorn.
I've always been a bit skeptical of pre-made or store bought popcorn, but this tastes like it was just popped. I just wish the caramel corn had some peanuts with it

I have one that my office received as a gift one year - we divided up the popcorn but since DH and I don't eat it, I got to keep the container. I keep my baking supplies in it, so I can find them all when I need them.

I'm just sitting here...smelling the fresh baked cookies and looking at my finger

IMPORTANT SAFTEY TIP:

Never chop cranberries with a super sharp knife after knocking back the better part of a pint of vodka.

I think the containers are more coveted than the popcorn.

Usually when I cook meat, that is all I make. But today I want something to go with the chicken legs. So I am making a small helping of potato salad. Only this time I will use the Hidden Valley regular dressing with bacon instead of mayonnaise. It should be good. Who says you have to be in season to eat foods you love. Potato will have to serve as my carb and veggie.

It's a beautiful day so DH and I are on our way to the last downtown farmers market of the season. I'm going to stock up on veggies.
