How I Got In The Closet ~ Memorial Day BBQ ~ Macaroon Day


Good sunny 49º gonna be hot one morning. Yesterday was warm, in the 80º's. After I mowed the front, turned on the sprinklers and the grass was wet and cool, turned off the sprinklers .... Maggie laid down in the grass! She is not a fan of summer. She's my winter girl!

Yesterday was exhausting... (sorry) with several loads of laundry, bedding (tearing bed apart, washing sheets, remaking it), mowing ... front and back .. and some other stuff.... blowing leaves ... watering and watering..... I heard the phone ringing several times, but I was never in the house all day! Showered and crashed in my chair... luckily had some of that shrimp wrap leftover to eat so didn't have to cook! Fell asleep until time for bed!

This is hilarious... thanks Lynn Helbing for the laugh!

I was going to tell you about Memorial Day at Brian and Jen's.... Jen made a super meal of barbecued 'meat on a stick' with chicken and sausage, veggie salad, fruit on a stick, Jean brought a hot potato dish, Jeannie made ambrosia, I brought my Oriental Coleslaw, and then we had s'mores for dessert! Brian and Bill conversed re 'man stuff' and tossed the ball for Atlas. Atlas dropped it behind Bill and patiently waited for another throw....

Bobo's camera was 'borrowed' by Bill and unauthorized photos were taken....
Mmmmmm...... good food!!!! Thanks Jen~!!!!

Sami was 'smokin' a pretzel....

Atlas patiently awaited the firing off of the logs for the s'mores....

Jeannie kept warm under the heater.. and the next day went and purchased her very own! Cousin Marie and her pal Brad were up from California....

Everyone loves s'mores!

Tucker....Dude.... you've got some marshmallow on your lip!

What a fun afternoon!

1930Clint Eastwood, American film director and actor
"I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?" Love it love it love it!!!!

National Macaroon Day

National Macaroon Day Macaroons are a simple cookie made from almond paste or coconut and mixed with sugar and egg whites. Many cultures have a macaroon-like cookie, but their origins are believed to be traced back to an Italian monastery in the early 1500's.
Because they are unleavened, macaroons are popular at Passover.

In addition to the basic macaroon, you will often find recipes for ones containing add-ins like cherries, orange, chocolate, apricot and more.
