Under The Weather

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been a bit under the weather and haven’t even thought about posting anything on here..Feeling a whole lot better though! WOOT! Let’s see if I can make up for lost time….

Expecting my sister and brother-in-law in for Thanksgiving and maybe even through Christmas….I’m doing a not-so-traditional Thanksgiving meal….We’re having BBQ Ribs, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, Macaroni and Cheese, Italian Green Beans, Turnip Greens, Yeast Rolls,  and of course, several desserts…..Peach Cobbler and a Brownstone Front Cake….Oh my, if  you’ve never fixed one of these, you are missing out!! Sooooo very good….!! The icing is bit tricky, but patience is the key for success as you have to boil and stir this icing for about 45 minutes……Well, worth the effort though….My mouth is watering already….

I’ve been on a roll here lately……Last week, prior to me leaving for my line dance event in Tampa, I have bid on a Bernina 170 embroidery/sewing combination machine….Well, guess what??  I WON the bid!! It came in while I was in Tampa, but when I got home, the first thing I did was unpack, set ‘er up, and sewed on her…THRILLED!!  She sews beautifully and does an very good job with the embroidery part as well…..THEN, oh yes it gets even better…..A lady I work with at the quilt shop had seven (7), yes, 7 Singer Featherweights……and she had a white one……and she was so cute……..and guess who bought her………ME!!!  So, Merry Christmas to me for the next 20 years…….!! I get so out of control sometimes, but it’s sooooo much fun….Only live once, and I’m on the downhill slide….So live it up, and enjoy the moment…..Can’t take it with me, right!!

Now an update on my line dance weekend……We danced our patootie’s off!!  Let’s see, Thursday night to bed around midnight…..Friday night to bed around 0130….and check this out…Saturday night to bed around……………………0300……..HOLY CANNOLI!!  I’m too old for this!!    NOT!!     Yes, my knee held up fine, but the rest of my body was screaming obscenities at me!!  A fantastic time we had!!!

Well, time to go get some milk and cookies I think………

Life is good…….YOU, be good to yourself!!

Have a very blessed and bountiful Thanksgiving! 

Recipe of the Day!

Line Dancing!!

This Thursday is the big day!  We are heading to Tampa, Fl for the weekend  to enjoy the Tampa  Bay Line Dance Classic……It’s been 4 years since I’ve been able to go due to a bad knee……..After having a knee replacement in March,  with fantatic results, I am 100% back on the dance floor!! Soooooo very excited about going!! I will post pics next week and hopefully a video as well…..

Have a great day and be good to yourself…..
