At first I thought the Movie Night one sounded like a cool idea. My second thought was: Heck, just make popcorn! The odor always lingers anyway, and you get some fresh, hot popcorn besides!

The storm(s) passed safely last night; happily, it was nasty only for about an hour or so. We were able to put in our little window A/C before the storms came in. We'll need them---it's supposed to hit 90 and above today, Friday, and Saturday.

The latest podcast is full of interesting stuff, and begins with a touching tribute to Louanne. Don't miss it! I listened to it in the car yesterday.

I second that...always up for some popcorn. I love mine buttery and salty...it's so bad for me but tastes so good! One of my favorite things, but I try to limit my intake.

I am heading out soon to pick up some more flowers to plant in the yard. My husband just put this little palm tree in the ground last night.

Thinking of Maris. Hope she heals well. Please give her hugs for us!

She is under the impression that she doesn't need driving lessons. I have driven with her and believe me when I tell you, she needs lessons. She has turned into such a sassy little thing. I don't know what happened to her. I didn't go through this with my other two.
I may have a glass of wine tonight.
Sorry to hear you had a bad driving experience! Makes me think how terrible of a teenager I must have been for my parents! EEK! As snowflake said - this too shall pass! Good luck!!! I hope you enjoyed a big glass of wine!

We were going to make breakfast sandwiches & we put them in the fire to clean them off....needless to say - they melted! EEK!! We know better than to do that!! Guess it had been too long since we used them last! Soooo, we made breakfast sandwiches on the grill instead! They were good, but not *pie iron good*!! I love to make little pizza's in them &/or they are delish with pie filling!



Good morning everyone! Rise 'n Shine!! It's Friday Eve!!! I hope everyone stayed safe in the storms last night!!
