I love, love, love cooking in pie irons over the fire. TIP OF THE DAY - don't put your pie irons in the fire & walk away!! We did this on Sunday morning. 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!!
Good morning, Holiday!!

How is your weather?

It is nasty here =]
Still rainy, humid and very windy.
It's days like this that I dream of FALL!!

Good morning, all! It's a bright sunny day here, 78 degrees and humid. Supposed to go up to 90 degrees today. I am now officially looking forward to Fall.

Good Thursday morning, my Christmas friends!

I am seriously giving thought to offering my (and my fellow bandmate and cousin, Ed's) services to take over supervision of the Praise Band at school. The young teacher that was supervising them has taken over as Pastor of his church, and has quit teaching. The lady who has taken over is very nice, but she oversees the chorus, and she's turning the praise band into another chorus. "Turn down that guitar", and "we don't need a bass or drums on this song, piano and voices only." That's terrible! I think Ed and I can offer a lot with our years of experience with live music. I'm going to have to pray on that idea.

It's getting hot down here, like I'm sure it is most everywhere else in the US. My pool is still a little cloudy, and it's making me mad. I just dumped $50 worth of additional chemicals in it, and I bet I have to do it again. Oh, well. It's summertime, so we gotta swim.

I hope y'all have a great day!

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.
The latest podcast made me cry again as I listened to her voice wishing us all a merry Christmas.
Well done as always!

Hi Snowflake! It's a warm & sticky one today!! I'm thankful for the breeze!! They are saying chance of storms later this afternoon/tonight! I drove the convertible to work today ~ sometimes in the mornings it's cool with the top down.... not today! I'm not ready for fall just yet! It was just 30º here a couple weeks ago! Ha ha! The weather has been perfect for our morning walks! I'm loving the no gloves/ear muffs/big coats for awhile! I have a lot of bike riding, walking, convertible & pontoon riding to do before I have to bundle up again! Lol! Have a great day!!
