Sweet Mini

Locally it's not peak season for tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers, but it must be somewhere.
The flavor of these mini cucumbers, sweet peppers and cherub tomatoes is like a taste of summer.
I was in Sam's this week and picked up the 1.5/2.0 lb packages of these and have had a plate with every meal since.  I have to say the yellow peppers are the best I have ever had. 

Yesterday I not only had a taste of summer but 80 degree weather to go with it.  It was wonderful.  I sat on the deck, read for awhile and even had a short nap.  It was so relaxing.  Today we are back in the 50's...oh, well.

I hope you have a great weekend and buy some Mini's!!!

Scenic Sunday

The sun is shining so brightly today, let's go outside and find some color!

It's been cloudy and gray for days, but not today!

The moss seems to glow in the sunshine.

One of my newest additions to the yard, (don't know the name but I love, love the colors)

As I was walking in the yard I noticed this bloom.....I must have dropped a bulb last fall.....It decided to take root and bloom.  Now you know why I love Jonquils.....H.E.A.R.T.Y!

I hope you are having a bright, happy, scenic Sunday.

Mixed Veggies

First of all I want to thank you all so very much for your well wishes and kind words.  You will never know how much I appreciate you all.  You are the best!

I've always been told that dreading surgery is the worst part.  I am happy to report that this was so true for me.  Yes, I had pain when I woke up in recovery but 2 sweet pills did the trick and the pain never returned.  I spent hours on the couch with knee elevated. Being catered to by Carrie and Lila couldn't have been more fun.  Meals prepared, dishes done, wow I could get use to this.  I have rested so much that I am about to bust loose and run......well, maybe not yet but I feel sooooo good!

Ice every two hours.....don't know about you but I find that frozen mixed veggies works so much better than ice cubes:

My family use to make fun of me using frozen peas for injuries, now I think they have all made the switch. ha

Caught up on lots of TV shows, read some, cleaned out recipe file.  Next week it's back to work and start on the awful tax preparation!  Ugh!

Once again, thanks to you all!

Oh yes, remember the picture of the eagles I shared recently?  They got a spot on the Little Rock news last night.  There have been as many as 15 spotted nesting in that area.  Traffic is getting congested on the road with cars stopping to photograph them.  I'm sure it will be worse now that it was on the news.  I'll have to go back and see if I can get a shot of them while they are still here.

Have a good weekend all!

I cannot sit still long enough to compose my thoughts.
I have been moving at fast forward speed lately. 
I can't get everything done.
Truth be told there is no reason for me to be in such a state!

Monday morning I am having the dreaded knee surgery!  I think I will make it fine but can't help but be anxious.  I don't like the thought of anesthesia.  I will really miss my morning coffee....oh, how I will miss it!

Carrie and Lila will be here to pamper me.....for which I am so thankful.  Maybe Lila will read  to me next week. She has her books memorized and loves to have story time. Holds them up and shows you the pages, just like school.

Speaking of books, I am reading a fascinating one by Stephen King:

It is so good, I just want to sit and read all day (if I could sit still)
The book references watershed moments, "a crucial turning point affecting actions, opinions, etc". King takes readers on a incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

I haven't read a Stephen King book in years and I am really loving this one.

It's Worth a Try.....NOT

Found this on pinterest and had to share with
