A few things that drive me nuts...

How negative! Sometimes ya just gotta get it out:
1. I dont get it when people on facebook constantly post numerous picture of THEMSELVES in all sort of poses...geez. Your kids are one thing but no way am I gonna post pictures of myself oogling...or peeking out behind trees. Obviously them need more mirrors.
2. Blogs without pictures. I need to connect more with someone I'm following...hey I'm nosey, I'm a stalker, the least you can do is grant me a look into your life...just dont make them all poses of YOU!
3. When the music on AOL radio stops like every hour to see if you are still "listening"...yes I am!
4. When I answer the phone and some peppy little sales person wants to talk to the "person in charge of yada yada yada"...if you dont have a name leave me ALONE! We dont need your junk anyway!
5. People that interupt when you are in mid conversation with another person. Nothing important...just more important (seemingly) than current conversation!


Thats all I can think of so obviously I'm not having that bad of a day, I'll go home and cook and forgot about things that bug me...Peace!

treats for me...

I always try to get myself a treat after something "not so great" like going to the dentist or like Friday, going to get my mammogram. While I do not hate doing so (its way better than the dentist) I still like rewards as if a were a child or something. Here's what I found Friday BEFORE my appointment...ha ha...a "pre" reward! Of course the real reward was today when the doctors office (yup even on Sunday) called to give my my *all's clear report*...if you are due for one gal's get off your butt and get one NOW! Dont forget to get yourself a treat too...I collect cast iron but my real treat is NO BREAST CANCER! Peace!

Florida Fall is here!

Today fall came here in Orlando! Nice cool "almost" sweater weather. I waited so long for this. Even though I'm a native Floridan I am not a heat lover and cannot wait for the cooler months to come and thankfully they are now upon us. Of course the picture posted was shot in Kansas last week of my beautiful Grands and their friend playing in the leaves. We dont *quite* have these leaves yet. This is the kind of weather when we think of hot chocolate, soups, stews and COFFEE! Being the foodie that I am, I'm constantly studying recipes and food blogs for seasonal ideas for meals...I love to cook more than eat! Thankfully the boys in my house like to eat more than cook! Peace!

last night I...




made a nice little dinner after work. I wanted a cozy little Italian dinner so after I got home and settled I cooked this up...yum! I love to cook and wish I had a bit more time in the day to more of it, and bake, I cant get enough of it! That of course is usually saved for the weekend when I have more time. Well Bon Appetite!

WOW! Its been a while...






I've pretty much skipped the summer of blog...but thankfully summer has broken into Florida Fall (ie. rain). Its kind of nice to be lazy and stay inside but I'm a hyper type that would tend to get cabin fever really fast. I would like an occasional snow but thats not gonna happen! Well it did once in 1976 but that ain't gonna happen again soon! Yesterday I canned pickles. We got an influx of cucumbers from the Food Bank at work and our residents didnt want them...they go more for the cakes and cookies. I thought why not, when life gives you cukes dont get into a pickle! So it was a success and I have nice bread and butter pickles for us to enjoy. Today is a candle kind of day and all of mine smell like pumpkins right now so bring on the rain! Toodles!
