Good morning.  Can't believe I was up so early.  Before 5 am.  Definitely will be crawling in for a nap at some point today. Another warm one here.  I heard, though, that by the weekend cooler weather will prevail. I went to the mall yesterday and found some awesome sales.  It's nice to find things that fit me now.  In fact, a 1X hung off me when I tried it on. Thank you Weight Watchers.

I'm in the house now until Thursday morn.  Not much to do since school let out, and I don't have any money to spend, so I plan on taking out my paints and trying a Christmas scene.  It's been awhile so I expect to be a bit rusty.  Still wish I could find another class. 

Almost had a catastrophe here the other night. One of our dining room chairs has seen better days so I told Ralph just to get rid of it. Definitely need new ones all around, but that can wait until January. So because  we moved a chair out from against the wall to take its place, I decided that moving  the table back against the wall would make more room. But, the table wouldn't budge. Even Ralph tried. Finally he  looked underneath to see what was stopping it, and low and behold, the legs had lost their screws. It's a round, glass top table we had bought many years ago and all the legs are intertwined in the center and bolted to hold up the table. It was those screws that were missing. What a mess that could have been. And like Ralph said, everything happens for a reason. Company could have been sitting at the table having dinner when it actually collapsed. 

Made the most awesome pork cutlets yesterday.  Served them with homemade fries and corn.  Simple, but good dinner.  Cutlets and fries were baked so not unhealthy.
Whole wheat bread crumbs, egg, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil. (I love a lot of spices).

Have a good one.


  1. Yes, that table was an accident waiting to happen -- good thing you discovered the problem when you did!

  2. How lucky you discovered the problem before disaster struck.

  3. Oh my goodness! Your cooking feels like I am home(I don't know if you can possibly understand what I am trying to say, lol), I wish we lived close by....
