My wife loved it when she saw it.

I'm so jealous!!!!!

Does camping in front of the television, watching the ballgame in your motor home late in the evening, count?

You should have just put the bail money part and left the rest out. LOL!!!


I wish you could have been here too. I was disappointed in the chocolate store though. Their homemade peanut butter cups use to be huge!! Now they are about the same size as the big cup reese's and almost $10.

It has been a busy week. Hubby is on vacation. He moved everything out of our spare bedroom upstairs on Monday, ripped up the carpet, yesterday he wiped down the walls & painted the ceiling. Last night he got a couple walls painted. Hoping to finish the painting before we leave for the weekend on Friday!

Monday night I picked a 5 gallon bucket full of tomatoes & got them all washed up & made some fesh salsa! Last night I ran the rest of them through the strainer & I have about 11 or 12 qt of juice ready to be boiled & canned! AFTER my hair cut!

Tomorrow is my hubby & my sisters birthday! We are planning to go out to eat at a restaurant/tavern where my nieces boyfriend is singing/playing (guitar) - Friday I'm off work - heading to Put In Bay! Wew! What a week! My brother & his whole family are in Put In Bay now (they come home today) - I have been dog sitting for their Mini Yorkie while they have been gone. She is so sweet!!

Yesterday I rec'd the Taste of Home "Comfort Food, Slow Cooker & Trick or Treat time" - I don't know why I was surprised to see it so soon. It made me smile...but it's bittersweet!!! Made me think of everyone here looking so fwd to fall & cooler temps. Gotta love the comfort foood time of year. Mmmmm!

Hope you are all having a great day!!
Happy Birthday to your hubby and sister!! Have fun celebrating!!

I could go for some comfort food right about now!!

xx

I may need a new hammock though. I have a few new holes because of the embers from the fire.
