For those of you who read my blog, you've noticed my absence. Thanks LisaJ for checking on me. Actually, I have no good reason for not posting. Unless being lazy is a good reason. Things have been a little crazy around here, but crazy happens to everyone.
I have a friend who is always using the excuse, 'I've been a little busy'. Well, haven't we all. You are no different, so I'm not going to use that excuse.
Please just forgive me and I promise to try to do better. I have been a little depressed when I see all the wonderful flower photography on so many blogs. I have a confession. I killed all mine. Please don't send the flower police to arrest me. All I had was a bunch of pots on my front porch with some lantana, petunias, and some other things. I fertilized them with Weed and Feed, and I got too much on them. They turned brown overnight and there was no saving them.
I don't have a garden either, and I feel that my family is fresh food deprived. But since the contractor has moved close to home, I'm hoping he'll come till up a spot next year and I can at least have some tomatoes and squash and peppers and okra. But we'll just have to wait and see. I don't have any baby goats to photograph and I don't live on a ranch. I'm just so deprived. See, why I'm depressed?
Ok, I went and got some cheese to go with my whine, and now I'm better.
Today, I'm going to go across the road and take some pictures of the cotton that is changing color and beginning to open. When this begins to happen, I realize that fall is in the air. I like fall, I like Halloween, and I like winter. We had 6 fogs in August, so I'm planning to count how many snows we have this winter to see it that old prognostication is correct. I'll keep you posted on that.
We will play Conasta here at the house on Thursday night. I've talked about our group on my blog before. So as you may remember, we've been playing about 25 years. The hostess gets to decide whether to serve finger foods or a full meal. I ususally serve a full meal and I used to always make lasagna, salad, rolls and desert. Last year I had roast and all the stuff that goes with that. This year, we're having breakfast.
I'm going to make two breakfast casseroles(thank you Christina for those great recipes) biscuits, bacon, eggs, milk gravy and chocolate gravy. I'm also doing a fruit tray since most of the breakfast foods I'm serving are slightly heavy. I also think I'm going to make a fruti punch to drink.
Hey, I know, when I'm cooking my casseroles, I'll atempt to make some pictures so it'll look like I'm a good blogger.
What's on your agenda today? As for me, I'm cleaning. Can't have my card playing friends think I'm not a good housekeeper. Actually, I think I'm a full blown packrat. Gotta go clean!!!
Hope you are having a great Tuesday. Love one another.
