good day...







Today I went to the Farmers Market with my sister...fun fun.fun! We walked around and then decided on a cool Mexican cafe for a snack...with $3 margaritas and they were so good! Then we did the market and I didnt buy anything because I have all this produce...notice I didnt say FRESH cuz it aint getting any fresher...so eat it up first girl! Then on to cooking...some good gumbo...in honor of LSU...I'm a Gator at heart but GO TIGERS! We started to plant some trees I got in the mail...redbud, crape myrtle, dogwood and golden rain tree...10 in all...hopefully a few survive as its not exactly the best time to plant ANYTHING with cold weather possibly creeping up on us. Well we did put off the planting today but the holes are dug. Tomorrow they will have soaked enough. So today was a great day in all sorts of ways. Wish I had brought a camera to the market but too much to lug around...Peace, Barbara

Beautiful Daze!

WOW...its been absolutely gorgeous today...a very springy kind of day. Howevvvvahhh...I took the tree down today which bums me out every year. I hate clutter so the Zen looking house makes me all calm and everything but the Christmas stuff I have saved for so many years and its a nice comfort as well. I always wait until Epiphany to take the stuff down...dont know if its a habit or just laziness because we all know that its just plain work. I take good care of my ornaments so its wrapping and packing. Then K drags the tree through the house and needles are everywhere so on to vaccuming...and so it goes. Its a clean fresh feeling though like just taking a shower...nice! I cannot imagine being a collector of anything much...Okay I collect cast iron and kitchen gadgets but its all hidden in the kitchen and not all over the house. I have a friend who actually has a spoon collection and thats just one of them. She collects about a jillion things and although I have never been to her house I can only imagine! So my new year has started with freshness...yay!
Today ET has traveled to another town to visit a very good friend and its just me and K and we are grilling filets and having salad, baked potatoes and rolls. YUM. Life is good! Peace. Sorry no pictures...you know how I hate blogs w/o pictures!

Last Holiday til Good Friday!


It was a nice day today, sort of. I trekked off to Publix, just to get out, and when I came back my car was sequestered for many hours of " what is that coming out ot the car". Sooo it was something about a gasket...but it took the better part of the day with the guys in the garage. Me...feeling all abandoned and all took to cooking...hello! I started with queso...Gator queso...for the game which I had to watch ALONE. I got the pretty blue corn chips too. Ehh...not as good as the mexican ones but prettier. Then on to chili and Dutch apple pie. Hello! I've been abandoned and hate any lack of attention. Surprised I didnt get really crafty but will save that for another day when I feel ignored ha ha! So Hoss (my Jeep) is fine now after some surgery and Life is gouda since Anthony Bordain is doing a "Layover" in Amsterdam tonight...wish it was me! And work starts up again tomorrow for all of us...getting up at 5:15 bumping into one another...trying to make coffee and lunches...life is good...always! PEACE!
