Aarrggh.  I don't know why my print keeps turning blue in the post above.  I keep correcting it, and it keeps turning blue!

I DO NOT HAVE A LOT TO SAY, LOL.

I DID SEE THAT THE TWO VOLUNTEERS BOTH LEFT THE

HOSPITAL CURED.  PRAISE THE LORD.  MAYBE NOW THEY CAN 

PUT AN END TO EBOLA ONCE AND FOR ALL.  THAT WOULD BE

A WONDERFUL BLESSING FOR THE WORLD AND LORD KNOWS

WE COULD USE SOME.

NASTY HERE TODAY...HOT AND HUMID AS HELL.  WE CLOSED

UP THE HOUSE AND PUT THE AC ON.  IT IS WORKING WELL

AND IT IS NICE IN THE HOUSE. THE WHOLE NEXT 5-6 DAYS

ARE SUPPOSED TO BE NASTY.  I SUPPOSE THESE ARE THE DOG

DAYS OF SUMMER.  BUT I WOULD NOT LEAVE A DOG OUTSIDE

IN THIS WEATHER.

ATE LEFT OVER CHINESE FOR SUPPER TONIGHT AND I STILL

HAVE A LOT LEFT.  PROBABLY 2 MORE MEALS.  WE GOT SOME

REALLY BEAUTIFUL TOMATOES FROM THE GARDEN.  I CAN

HARDLY WAIT TO EAT THEM.

MY BROTHER WAS THE NICEST KID.  HE LOVED TO VISIT 

PEOPLE AND TALK.  HE COULD NOT READ OR WRITE MUCH 

MORE THAN HIS NAME BUT HE KNEW SO MUCH. HE COULD

CHAT FOR HOURS WITH PEOPLE.  I WILL ALWAYS FEEL

GUILTY FOR NOT BEING CLOSER TO HIM AND NOT

EMBRACING HIM.  HE DIED AT THE START OF MY SENIOR 

YEAR AND IT WAS A DIFFICULT TIME FOR US ALL.  IT WAS

THE FIRST TIME I QUESTIONED MY BELIEF IN GOD.  IT WAS

SO UNFAIR.  BUT I KNOW THE LORD NEEDED MIKE.  IT IS

HARD SOME TIMES.  I CAN NO LONGER REMEMBER WHAT

HIS VOICE SOUNDED LIKE.  I CANNOT REMEMBER ALL 

THAT MUCH INVOLVING HIM.  HE HAD HIS OWN LIFE AND

WAS ALWAYS HAPPY.  HE WAS A LESSON TO US ALL.  HE

ALWAYS HAD A SMILE AND ONLY SAW THE GOOD THINGS

IN LIFE AND PEOPLE.  THE WORLD COULD HAVE LEARNED

A LOT FROM HIM.  

I DID DO A CHALLENGE TODAY AND IT WAS A TUTORIAL

CHALLENGE.  WE HAD TO USE A GROUP TUTORIAL FROM 

APRIL 2013.  I LIKED THE ONE I PICKED BUT MY TUBE

HAD TOO MUCH DARK IN IT AND IT MADE THE TAG DARK.

STILL, IT TURNED OUT FINE.

HUGS,

Today is Ride the Wind Day.  

You are the Wind beneath my Wings.  smiley96

I tried to pop in here last night and Aimoo had all of the servers completely shut down.  Fortunately I could get on the Facebook Help Group and see that they were working on it.

Our visit to Freddy's yesterday was a bit disappointing.  It was still good, but not as good as the older Freddy's that is such a long way from us.  "Close, but no cigar".  Still a good meal and a fun outing.  

Mike decided he didn't want to go for groceries yesterday, so he may do that today.  We don't need a whole lot.

We lead such exciting lives.  lol  We watched several episodes of Haven.  I had really liked that show at first and then lost enthusiasm for it.  Now I'm thinking that I probably watched a lot of it while I was on the PC so I didn't pay close attention, because this re-viewing of all episodes has been a real eye-opener.    It really is so much more fun to watch the episodes without commercials , and two or three a day when there is nothing else on.  Everything just flows so much better.

As I told you, we've been re-watching The Closer the same way. Two or three episodes without commercials in a row in the evenings when there isn't anything else on.  It was such a good show. I have been loving it, and so has Mike.  It's just so much more enjoyable when you don't have to wait a week (or 4 months!) between episodes.

 This is sort of "Ride the Wind", right?

Oh, dear.  I'm watching the news again.  Seem to be serious threats of ISIS attacking us here in America.  I can't imagine how they'd get in ~ our Border is so secure.  Joe Biden told me so.  (Lord, help us!)

Right now our weather is just my style, but you know that can change in a heartbeat.  I'm glad you are using the AC!

Kids like your brother seem to be the sweetest, most loving people.  We look at them and feel sad for all they are missing, but I wonder who really is missing the most.   They seem to understand the important things and don't get caught up in all the crap that we do.    I remember how I would feel after spending time with them ~ just happy.  They made me feel good, and loved, and of value.  

Mike is grilling burgers tonight and he has promised me a Root Beer Malt.   (I got him a malt/shake machine for Christmas)   Sounds lovely.  I'd never heard of Root Beer Malts until a few years ago when I had frozen malts sent to Mike for his birthday from Whiteys (a wonderful ice cream store in Davenport IA that his family always used to visit).  I casually asked about different flavors of malts and for once in my life didn't give my plans away.  Anyway, he told me one of his favorite flavors was Root Beer.  It sounded positively weird to me, but then I'd never been a huge malt fan anyway.  So he gave me just a little of his Root Beer Malt ~~ and I was hooked.  Seriously yummy.  I'm really looking forward to having one tonite.

Oooh, another lovely tag!  Thank you so much!

Have a GREAT day!

What terrible news to wake to.  The Earthquake in Napa, the British Rapper who cut off James Foley's Head, more attacks in the middle East and Lois Lerner still not sitting in a jail cell.  Is there never going to be a day when we aren't afraid to turn on the news again?     I couldn't tear my eyes away from the horror in Napa.  

Ok, I'll move on, or try to.  While we have been celebrating Mike's birthday all month, today is the official "kick off'.    Raspberries for breakfast and we're going to the Keg for dinner ~ they give him his dinner "free", though I have to pay for mine and any extras we might want.  

It's supposed to be in the low 80s today with zero chance of rain (they Say), so we're going to take the clean Lincoln out of the garage for the first time since it's bath and detailing in the driveway.  

Tomorrow we are going to Lucile's in Longmont for breakfast ~ the very best eggs Benedict.   On the way home, we will pick up one of my treats for him, an assortment of cupcakes to have after dinner all week.   I know all of you would bake them for him yourselves, but I made my famous ~~~~ call to the Bakery to order them.   I also ordered a Boston Cream Cake for next weekend.    His mom used to make him Boston Cream Pie and/or German Chocolate Cake for him, so last year that's what I ordered (German chocolate CUPCAKES) and Boston Cream Cake, and he loved it and wanted the same this year.  We won't pick up the cake until Friday, but we'll enjoy the cupcakes all week.  In addition to the German Chocolate, he wanted (and got) Red Velvet, Lemon and Chocolate.       Gee.  It's hard to imagine why we are fat.   

And BTW, Mike did make Root Beer Malts last night and they were seriously delicious!   When we went to Freddy's we picked up two quarts of their frozen custard and he used that for the malts, along with some milk, malt powder and root beer flavoring, and mixed it all up in his Malt Machine.  Yum!

I could not get in her yesterday.  My internet was in and out

and sites would not load and if it did then it would crash.

Today is somewhat better but still issues so I am not going to

try and be fancy.  Nothing much going on here.  PSPing and

reading...not much else.  Tomorrow is supposed to be 87 and

humid so the air will stay on for another day.  The only day not 

listed for rain next week is Wed.  So humidity will remain up

but the temp will come down a bit into the 70's.

Here are a couple of new pics.

Samuel is 2 months old now.



And Sailer is 1 week old


Isn't she beautiful!

We did have some wonderful corn on the cob today that my sister

Suzanne brought us from her garden.  It was delicious.  We love

the all yellow corn.  But all you can ever get anymore is the 

bicolor.  It is too sweet for me.  I like the solid yellow.  I am glad 

she grew some.  Our tomatoes are doing well and are also

delicious.  You just cannot beat a homegrown tomato for taste.

Finished another challenge.  It had to be forum style, 

600x250.  Had to use 2 different fonts....one

starting with A,B or C and another starting with X, Y, or Z.

The same with plugins...one starting with A, B, or C and another

starting with X, Y or Z.  The fonts are Anna Nicole and Zanzibar.

The plugins are Xenoflex Constellation and AAA Frameworks.

I also used Xero Porcelain.  So that's it for me.

Hugs,

Good Morning.  Welcome to a Brand New Week.  Are you ready for it?

Mike had a bad night sleep-wise so he decided he didn't want to go out for breakfast this morning.  We'll still pick up the cupcakes later but otherwise it will be a nice low-key day.
Dinner last night was very nice.   Mike had a Shrimp Cocktail with very spicy cocktail sauce, he tells me, just the way he likes it.  I didn't have any of his shrimp because I had my wonderful Brie appetizer (Brie on crostini with a very hot red pepper jelly and pesto to add).  That red pepper jelly is so hot it makes you mad, yet I kept adding it onto my brie atop the crostini.  After the first one started a fire in my mouth, I added just a little bit of the jelly, and topped it with the pesto to cool the flames a bit.  I did share some with Mike and he loved it.  I kept complaining how hot it was, but I didn't stop adding it each time ~ LOL

Reminds me of years, no ~ decades ~ ago when my Aunt Jean had us for a ham dinner for some holiday and she made what became "her famous Horsey Sauce" to go with the Ham.  She added horseradish sauce to whipped cream and served it with the ham.  My big brother took some, made a terrible face and said "This stuff is awful!" ~ then proceeded to pile it on and ask for more.  With each bite he'd declare it "terrible stuff", but he didn't miss a single bite.  LOL  That, apparently is me with the red pepper jelly.  Ha!
A side note:  Even though Mike never had Jean's 'Horsey sauce', he now makes it every time we have ham.  It's tradition!  

After stuffing myself with the Heavenly Brie, I just had a Spinach Salad, with strawberries, glazed pecans and cranberries.   Mike had filet and lobster and brought enough steak home for today's lunch.   We shared a piece of carrot cake for dessert.


We should be in the high 70's today, with a small chance of rain.  We really should get out and add some Miracle Grow to the flowers.  They are coming back, thank goodness.

Last Friday when they mowed and trimmed the lawn, they also trimmed the bushes.  I was delighted looking out from inside the house to see them trim the Potentilla bushes which were really getting out of hand.  Looking at them from outside however, was not quite so thrilling.  They are ok, but they don't "match" and they really could have if they'd taken a bit more pains with them.  Better than before I guess.
smiley35

Oooh, what wonderful baby pictures!    How adorable is Samuel?  And you are right, Sailer is simply beautiful!

Sounds like you had a nice feast.  I really do like the sweet white corn best, but I can't imagine turning up my nose at delicious yellow corn either.  I've never been a big fan of tomatoes. Can't say why.  I love tomato juice and sauce and I won't take a slice of tomato off of a burger ~~ but I won't deliberately put one on, either.  Ha.

I LOVE my new Cat Tag!  You are doing such beautiful work.  I enjoy having you tell me which filters and other elements you are using, too, even though I do almost nothing in PSP anymore.   Thank you so much!!

Cupcakes!  Let the celebration begin!  Please help yourself.  We have German Chocolate, peanut Butter, Chocolate, Lemon and Red Velvet.  Enjoy!

Very quiet day, just my speed.  I'll make a meatloaf tonight so we can have meals ready to heat and eat for the next few days.    Marcela comes tomorrow morning, so if you don't see my smiling face until later you'll know why.

Did you watch the Emmys last night?  We didn't.  We haven't watched more than three or four of the shows that were nominated and didn't know many of the actors either.  A few wins that I would have been happy about if I'd been watching, but for the most part nothing to interest us.   We are soooo our of the mainstream of tele-viewing.   Ha.

I'm so sorry you had a miserable headache.  I hope you woke up headache free and feeling fine!

Have a happy day.

 HEADACHE IS ON AN OFF AND REALLY ANNOYING.  I THINK IT'S THE HUMIDITY 

AND WE DID NOT HAVE THE AIR ON TODAY.  WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE 

GETTING A BREAK IN THE HUMIDITY.  I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT.

IT ALSO COULD BE BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN READING A LOT.  HARD TO SAY.

LUNCH TODAY WAS HOMEGROWN CORN, TOMATOES AND CUCUMBERS

MADE INTO PICKLES.  IT WAS DELICIOUS.  I HOPE MY SISTER WILL SHARE

MORE OF HER CORN.  I DO NOT KNOW HOW MUCH SHE GREW.  THE 

TOMATOES ARE COMING FAST NOW.  WE WILL HAVE TO FREEZE OR

MAKE SALSA WITH SOME.  MOM TELLS MY SISTERS TO STOP AND GET

SOME, BUT JOANNE AND SUZANNE GREW THEIR OWN THIS YEAR AND

DIANE HAS NOT COME BY.  HER LOSS.

I WANT ONE OF EACH CUPCAKE.  THEY LOOK SO WONDERFUL.  WHAT

AN AWESOME WAY TO CELEBRATE.  SOMETHING DIFFERENT EACH 

DAY.  WHAT DAY IS ACTUALLY HIS BIRTHDAY?

BRUCE WAS PHOTOGRAPHING SAILER THIS PAST WEEKEND.

AND NEW TAGS FOR US.  HAVE A HAPPY HUMP DAY!

TODAY WAS A BLESSING.  HUMIDITY DROPPED WAY DOWN.
LIFE WAS BEARABLE.  NOTHING MUCH GOING ON.  I FINISHED 
THE 4TH BOOK IN SERIES I WAS READING.  GOT THE FIRST ONE
FREE AND OF COURSE I HAD TO GET THE OTHERS.  1 WAS A
NOVELETTE AND WAS ALSO FREE BUT THE OTHER 2 WERE 3.99
EACH, OR YOU COULD BUY THE COMPLETE SET FOR 6.99 WHICH
SAVED ME A BUCK, LOL.  BUT I NOW HAVE 2 OF THE FIRST 
BOOK, LOL.
NOTHING MUCH GOING ON HERE.  EVERYTHING IS QUIET.  OUR 
PUBLIC SCHOOLS DO NOT START UNTIL AFTER LABOR DAY SO
THAT ALL THE KIDS CAN WORK LABOR DAY WEEKEND, THE LAST
BIG BASH OF THE SUMMER.
I HAVE TO SHARE SAMUEL'S 6 WEEK PHOTO.  IT IS SO CUTE.



ISN'T HE JUST ADORABLE?  I AM SO GLAD THEY ALL SHARE PICS.
WELL, CANNOT THINK OF ANYTHING ELSE TO SHARE, OTHER THAN
THE NEW TAGS I MADE.  THIS CHALLENGE WAS ONLY THAT THE

At least I certainly do!   

Trash and Recycle Day today.  Mike got the cans out before 7 and they were both picked up early   I need to bring them in.   I've had my shower and we've just had breakfast, so the rest of the day awaits!

We finished watching all the episodes of Haven and it makes a lot more sense to me now.  I want to re-watch the last episode before the new season starts.  Lesson learned?  I need to actually watch rather than 'sort of watching' over the top of my lap top.  I obviously missed a lot when I watched it all the first time.

We're also closing in on The Closer.   I have really been loving watching all the episodes from the first.  That really was a great show.   I like Major Crimes, but I liked The Closer more.

smiley4

How Infuriating!  I posted yesterday, commenting on the darling pictures, asking if you made Sailer's "outfit" and thanking you for the beautiful tag in addition to prattling about some of our goings on.   Now I come in, and my post is gone!   I'm going to assume that while I most definitely did write it, I may have left the site without actually hitting "Post", though I surely thought I did.  Infuriating!  

I'm glad your humidity finally went down.  High humidity is miserable for me, and I don't have your kind of breathing problems.

Samuel is too adorable!   I love seeing the pictures, too.    And another beautiful tag!  Thank you!   I have it saved.

Terrible stories on the news ~~ yet again!   First the 9 year old girl who shot and killed her shooting instructor with an UZI!    That said, I can't understand why anyone would think an UZI was a toy to be played with by kids.   Mike was in the military 'back in the day' and he was an expert marksman, but he said HE didn't want to handle an UZI.  Not to go along with the Anti-Gun crowd, but why would you WANT to have or use one even as an adult?   That poor child will have to live with that for the rest of her life and the instructor's family will have to live without him.  Senseless. 

Then my friend Judy in Omaha sent a note telling about a situation there.  The TV Show COPS was filming there and they went to the location of a Cop requesting help with a burglary suspect.   The Bad Guy had a pellet gun that looked like a real gun and was threatening the people there.  The COPS crew came in to film and one of the crew members was shot and killed by the cop.   Apparently the bullet went in just the 'right' location not covered by the Photographer's bullet proof vest.  What a horrible thing for all of them!

I think the only solution is to avoid the news all together and leave my head stuck in the sand.   I did pay FULL PRICE for the new Louise Penny 'Inspector Gamache' book on kindle yesterday.  I have been doling these books out to myself to make the series last longer, but I finished the last one a week ago and decided I couldn't wait t start this one.   It really galls me to pay large prices for Kindle books, which don't cost the Publishers anything to produce, but I did, and I'm reading and enjoying it now.    I can't remember ~ Have you read any of those books?

Stay away from the news and have a Happy Day.

Morning.

I've been watching P.M. David Cameron's speech on terrorism so I had to delay saying Hello.  Very impressive ~ if he means it.    Ok, I admit I'm still annoyed at our President for interrupting my Soap Opera yesterday afternoon to say Nothing, except that he doesn't have a strategy to defeat ISIS yet.  Gee, THAT needed to be shared.    During my Soap!  (Guffaw) smiley73 

We are going out for Mike's chosen Birthday dinner tonight ~ Chinese with lots of carry out. I offered to take him any place he wanted to go and that's what he chose.  He just had a cupcake for Pre-Breakfast, and we have a Marionberry Pie for breakfast!  Hey, you can have eggs anytime!  Ha!

Have a good one!

Well, we have a mystery it seems, as I swear I posted last night, yet there is not a post here.  But I seem to recall posting and making sure it was there.  I usually do.  Or was it a dream, lol.  Maybe I did not.  
Now I am thinking I might not of, because I do not recall posting about my INR.  I am too low.  Under 2.  Could think of no reason for it when talking to the nurse, I said less greens than normal but that would work the other way.  Then I remembered....CABBAGE!!  I ate Moo Shu 4 or 5 times last week.  There was so much of it and I love it.  We are sure that is what it was.  So dose stayed the same with just an extra 1.5 last night to boost it. Then recheck in 2 weeks to make sure that was the issue.
Tomatoes are coming really fast now.  We are getting a back up so I may make some salsa.  I may make my own as the boughten packs of seasoning are too hot for me.
That Uzi one struck me as so stupid.  Why would anyonelet a child use an Uzi?  And they had to know the kickbackwould be too much for her.  So stupid.
We watch COPS a lot.  I guess that is an episode they will not be airing.  This is something that definitely should not have happened.  It just goes to show that it does not matter who's hands the gun is in.  
Today we are back to hot and humid.  It was hotter than the forecast called for....it was supposed to be high of 81 but it hit 87 with high humidity and our air was not on.  I should have insisted on it even though mom was ignoring my whining, lol.  If it gets this bad tomorrow I am unplugging my lap top and taking it into my room.  I do not need the squawk box on to keep me company.  But cool dry air will be wonderful.  I am looking forward to going to bed.  Well, off to finish up so I can close this down...so hot on my lap.  Will finish up on ipad.  
Have you got any plans for the holiday weekend?  We do not, lol.  What else is new?  Hugs,

Oh, HAIL!      So yesterday afternoon we were watching TV in our different locations before it was time to go out for dinner.   It had been a lovely day and we had an 11% chance of rain, so it was a bit surprising when the winds started really whipping and the sky darkened, and then it started a tremendous downpour.   It was so loud I had to turn the TV up ~ and that was before the Hail started!   Then it got so loud I had to turn the TV all the way up to hear it!  I have NEVER heard any storm so loud before.  


It lasted for nearly half an hour, and when it was done it looked like it had snowed ~~~ and our poor flowers were trashed. smiley68    Our Bloomerangs had just bloomed and the petunias were looking good.  WERE, being the operative word.  Now they are stripped.  


Haven't looked around the rest of the yard yet or checked out the roof or siding.  I don't think they were damaged, and while some leaves were knocked off our trees, the damage doesn't look bad.  Some of our neighbors around the corner had nothing but leaves in their yards.  So sad.  Everything had been looking really good.   Still, if this is the worst thing that happens we won't be able to complain.

We debated about going out for dinner as we had planned.  If it rained again we probably wouldn't have melted, but we sure wouldn't want to have the car out in the hail!    Ultimately we decided to go, and we had a lovely dinner and brought home tons of leftovers, enough for tonight and tomorrow night!

We started with a Flaming Volcano and appetizers (Pot Stickers, Crab Rangoons, and Fan Tailed Shrimp) and then I had very mild Sesame Chicken and he had Orange Chicken (not so very mild).  We skipped on dessert, and Still full an hour or more after we got home, we split a German Chocolate Cupcake.  smiley73

Sort of funny story about the Flaming Volcano.  We used to spend the morning in the pool, then come in and shower and dress and go to a favorite Chinese Restaurant to share a Flaming Volcano and appetizers.  We wouldn't order a meal, but tons of delicious appetizers.  Then we'd come home after all that sun and fresh air and pool time, and full of "volcano" and appetizers, we would crash and burn!   Lovely memories.  LOL

Today is Mike's birthday and we plan for a nice, low key day ~~ his choice, bt I'm looking forward to it, too.   Pie for breakfast, Gifts and a glass of that outrageously expensive Scotch in the library in the late afternoon, and after our leftover dinner, I have a Boston Cream Pie for dessert.

Lou Ann, I'm glad I'm not the only one!  That happened to me a couple of days ago, as you remember.  I definitely posted ~ or at least I definitely wrote a post ~ but when I came in the next day, no post from me.  Maybe we have a poltergeist!  

I had my INR going over 3 a couple of times, not back to back.  We left my pills alone and on Thursday it was a lovely 2.6.   Wishing you the same!

  I think you really need to use the AC with your breathing problems.  If your mom won't put it on, do go into your room and read and be cool.  There isn't a heck of a lot worth watching on TV anyway.  smiley60

For Labor Day, Mike got some wonderful looking rib eyes to grill and I think we'll have them with some sweet potato fries.  Maybe an ear of corn, too?

I have very deliberately not "learned" how to grill.  Folks are always telling me how easy it is, and I glare at them and say that I can NOT do it!  What part of 'I don't WANT to' don't they get?  Ha!

Another lovely tag!  Thank you so much!!

Have a great day!

HERE IS A RAINBOW FOR YOUR RAIN.  IT RAINED HERE TODAY 
TOO!  NO HAIL AND WE DID HAVE A RAINBOW.  IT WAS COOLER 
TODAY BUT HUMIDITY WAS WAY UP.  I GOT UP THIS MORNING
TO MOM HAVING THE FRONT DOOR SHUT AND TELLING ME TO
LEAVE MY DOOR OPEN.  THE HOUSE WAS NASTY WARM AND 
HUMID.  TURNED BY AC UP AND TURNED MOMS ON.  AFTER
THE HOUSE COOLED OFF, WE TURNED HERS OFF AND LEFT
MINE ON AND IT IS HANDLING IT WELL.

TELL MIKE HAPPY BIRTHDAY FROM ME AND THAT I HOPE HE HAS
MANY MORE AND THAT THE YEAR AHEAD IS HIS BEST ONE EVER.
WHAT IS THE FLAMING VOLCANO??  ALL THE REST I RECOGNIZE.
IT IS FUNNY, ORANGE CHICKEN IS NOT A SPICY DISH AROUND
HERE.  BUT IF YOU GET SESAME CHICKEN FROM CHINATOWN
KITCHEN IT IS HOT AND YOU NEED TO ASK FOR IT TO BE MILD.
BUT AT CHEF KING, IT IS NOT A HOT DISH.  YOU JUST NEVER
KNOW.  IN THE FUTURE, IF I GET MOO SHU I WILL HAVE TO
FREEZE HALF OF IT SO THAT I DO NOT THROW MY INR SO
OUT OF WHACK.  I CERTAINLY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER.

TODAY FOR LUNCH WE ATE CORN ON THE COB AND TOMATOES.
DELICIOUS AND I POPPED FOR PIZZAVILLE FOR SUPPER.  I GOT
MY BROASTED CHICKEN AND MOM GOT HER BBQ RIBS.  WE 
HAD ENOUGH CHICKEN COUPONS THAT MY MEAL WAS FREE.
SO I ONLY HAD TO PAY FOR MOMS.  CAN'T BEAT THAT WITH
A STICK.  WE HAD SOME PEPPERS FROM THE GARDEN SO
MOM STUFFED THEM AND FROZE THEM FOR ME.  SHE REALLY
DOES NOT LIKE GREEN PEPPERS MUCH.  I DO!!  NO SOONER
HAD SHE DONE THAT, THAN MY SISTER MESSAGES HER TO
BRING HER A PEPPER TO CHURCH TOMORROW.  OH, NO...
MOM USED THEM ALL AND THE OTHERS IN THE GARDEN ARE
NOT READY TO BE PICKED.  OH WELL, MOM TOLD HER 
EARLY IN THE WEEK TO COME GET SOME AND SHE DID NOT
BOTHER, SO SHE IS JUST OUT OF LUCK.
I FINISHED THE BOOK I WAS READING AND ENJOYED IT, SO 
WILL HAVE TO CHECK OUT WHAT ELSE THAT AUTHOR HAS TO
OFFER.  THOUGH I HAVE TONS OF FREEBIES IN MY KINDLE.
I PREORDERED THE NORA ROBERTS BOOK THAT IS 3RD IN A
SERIES I HAVE READ.  I TOO HATE WAITING FOR THE NEXT 
ONE IN A SERIES TO BE RELEASED.  NO I HAVE NEVER READ
ANY OF LOUISE PENNY BOOKS.  IF THEY ARE EXPENSIVE,
I WILL NOT BE PURCHASING ANY TO SEE IF I WOULD LIKE
THEM.  I CERTAINLY HAVE ENOUGH TO READ.
WELL IT IS TIME TO SAY GOOD NIGHT TO MY LAPPY, SO THAT
MEANS I SAY GOOD NIGHT TO YOU TOO!  SLEEP WELL AND 
HAVE A BLESSED SUNDAY.
HUGS,
