Peanut Butter ~ The Nothing Box ~ Throw Back Thursday ~ What Bird Are You? ~ Tim Alden ~ Happy Birthday Bear ~ Two Mikes! ~ Cold Cuts


Good 46º pretty clear morning. 

Warmed up yesterday and the sun was great. I had both doors open with just the screen doors closed.NICE!!!
Breakfast yesterday was plain waffled corn biscuits topped with three kinds of peanut butter (Chocolate Cheesecake, The Bee's Knees & White Chocolate Wonderful)  and on one some Simply Fruit Strawberry Jam ... and the leftover deviled eggs...


 I had to laugh, had face-time with Sami first thing and she was eating breakfast (her choice for her birthday no doubt!) .. a donut, kiwi fruit, and a spoonful of peanut butter.

This is hilarious ladies... and men you will enjoy too! From my pal Brooklyn Vivia... The Nothing Box
Today is Throw Back Thursday...
Christmas at my parent's house. I think about 1958. Here are 4 sets of sisters all of different generations! #1 & #2 are my great aunt, Auntie.. Sarah Dunbar and her sister my grandmother, Isabel Mills aka Nanno. #3 & #4 are my Mother Margaret Laney and her sister Agnes Williams. #5 & #6 are me and my oldest sister Betty Mueller. #7 & #8 are Betty and Joe's (he's on the far left) girls Nancy & Mary Ann. Their younger brother Joe Jr is on my lap.

I got this for Sami for her birthday.... will give it to her when we get together ....

Pain in the neck day yesterday ... my sink stopped up and I thought I had it somewhat fixed when the dishwasher overflowed! SH*T!!!!! What a watery mess. I called Mike Artoff and told his wife Sue what the problem was. She said she didn't know when he would be out. BUT, great guy that he is, he came by on his way home and got it all fixed!

Mike Hannan, Jennifer's BF and former RR Fire Chief, got here in the early afternoon and started on some yard clean up projects. Lots of tree fall, fences across the creek clogged up, and there was a bunch of stumps and stuff down by the front of the barn he brought up and put in the burn pile.


He also fixed my footbridge out back..


When he was done we sat with a cocktail and chatted a bit.

Reruns for dinner, chair, wine, and TV. Zzzzzzzzzzz... and a nap!!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.

March 3rd
National Cold Cuts Day

Lunch meats - also known as cold cuts, luncheon meats, sandwich meats, sliced meats, cold meats, and deli meats. These are pre-cooked or cured meat, often sausages or meat loves, that are sliced and served cold or hot on sandwiches or on party trays.  
As my friend Trish Bowler told me, wrap some deli turkey in a lettuce leaf for snacking. 

Mmmmmmmm..... I love it. Good for you, tasty, and quick and easy! No guilt here!!!

GOOD morning. This is an experiment. See if the day goes better when it is greeted in all caps.

Tyler Florence is one of our favorite TV chefs. Classic American man-food presented with class.

Love the yellow warbler on the Audubon site.

Today, I iron. Let the fresh scent of starch steam in my face...

Blessings-

Yes, the Warbler is pretty! What bird are you??? xo

LOL I just took the bird quiz and got the same as you, Rufous Hummingbird. That's fitting I guess because our "pets" are Hummers. :)

You set my mouth to watering with our turkey in the lettuce wrap. I also put a stick of string cheese in it too. Filling and oh so good with mustard slathered on. Low cal too. :)

Oh man, when it rains it pours! The life of a home owner! We just had to purchase a new garage door opener, new rubber molding and lube the rollers. Couldn't believe the cost of all that! A great company tho and got a discount because I was a repeat customer.

Wonderful family photo!

XOXO Trisha

Thanks T! Yes, nothing cheap about repairs. Jerry used to do just about everything around here and the costs were a lot lower! Just had to keep him happy with tequila, cigars, and western movies!! The turkey wrap made me hungry, so had a couple for breakfast today. xo
