Two months...

MOOBEAR'S ANNIVERSARY FLOWERS Well don't seem that long ago, but time does fly when you are having fun. So today is my second month anniversary of blogging. I have yet to regret starting my blog as I have gained so much more out of it than I have ever put into it. I have made new friends who, otherwise, our paths would never have crossed. I may have lost one along the way but that was their choice, not mine. It is rare that I make decisions and even more rare to make a good one!
Thanks for all of you that have stopped by and for those that returned I send a special thank you.

Also, I have had many nice and kind comments and I have not taken them lightly. I appreciate anyone that takes the time to comment and most of all the thought behind the comment whether it big or small.

I topped my day off with a well deserved and much need haircut. As usual my Thursday trip to my hairdresser won't no different- in respect- as to having fun. They are all a wonderful bunch of folks, even some are witty and dang right funny, which fits me and my life to a "t". Before I left , my beach house friend dropped by and gave me a good mess of butterbeans and okra right fresh outta her garden. She knows how I love crowder peas, but she was fresh out of them, but reassured me that I would get a mess out of the next picking. I do dearly love crowder peas. I thank the Lord I was raised poor cause poor folks actually ate much better than the rich folks did, in my opinion. They can have their a la carts and them horderves and such. I will just be hunky dory with my fried chicken, fried taters and such.

Also ain't nothing better than cooking those things in the old cast iron frying pans handed down from generation to generation, you can't just wear them out. I have assembled a mass of them from my aunt and my mother in law. I like to keep mine treated so they be slick as a baby's butt and makes frying lots easier. I don't wanna fryer that my food is going to stick too. Now I won't say I ain't used a teflon pan once in a while; they good for grilling pimento cheese sandwiches or frying an egg in good hot bacon grease, but they ain't made for real cooks. I don't really like cooking actually, but getting a little nicer with it since I have more time. It was always hard to work and come in and jump right into cooking a meal. Now I can pace myself and cook ahead of time if necessary. I can also get the hubby to string the beans the night before, because I do not like to string no beans. He can sit still long enough to get the job done and I just can't. Guess that is why Roxy is his lap dog, not mine, cause I am up and down too much. I always did want a lap dog. Wasn't always that way, but now I just cannot sit still for long at a time, dunno why. Same way in them little rooms at the doctor's offices, pace and pace and always grab one of their kleenex and blow my nose, just a habit I reckon. Mine has windows now, that helps too. Docs just don't get in no hurry when I am in those little rooms.

Welp since I have congratulated myself and patted myself on the back for the anniversary and not to forget my flowers, I will just shut up. I just wanted to make sure you good folks know that I have been here that long. Many may be hoping I just go away and that too can happen. I do live day to day and with that way of life, bout anything can happen. Time will tell...until....
something does....outta here for the day...

God Bless!

Happy Blogging Anniversary!!

I really enjoy the blog world but also enjoy the human contact of friends in the real world.

I am in the process of cleaning my china cabinet....I am on the 2nd of 3 shelves. I haven't done this since my mom died...and am afraid it won't all fit back as well as she did it. I should have taken a photo before I started...oh well.

I am on the final stretch of my vacation!!

Enjoy your day..evening...sleep well!! Happy Anniversary!!

awwww happy aniversary!!!! I am glad you are enjoying blogging. I lasted less than 2 months, but I don't think it's my thing. Anyway, you're half right about poor people eating better than the rich. I have to say that poor, COUNTRY folk eat better. We lived off the garden when I was young. I am here to say nothing in this world tastes as good as fresh corn right out of the garden.

Thanks lovesjazzlovescoffee and high fives for cleaning out the china cabinet. LOL, a before picture would have been a big help.

Thanks to you too teresa. Yeah ,Well I did leave out the country part, but I pretty much figured folks could tell I was country by my blog. :P You are also right about fresh stuff outta the garden. For the bloggin, you can pick it back up and make a lot of folks happy!

Bless you both.
God Bless!

Really liked your blog today. Happy blog anniversay....also loved your roses & teddy bear! I look forward to reading your blog everyday, in fact sometimes I become downright impatient waiting for it!! I agree with you about the country food. I like my gourmet dinners, but there is nothing like old timey country cooking! I miss my Mom and her cooking so much; she was one of the best country cooks ever!! You are a good cook too, hope I get to have some of your pinto beans and cornbread again!

Congratulations, Claudia ! Only two month blogging ? I thought much longer. Anyway you may not have a lap dog, but I am sure you have a lap top and that's good too and THERE you have to sit still.

Thank you ALL for the really nice comments on my anniversary. I want ya'll to know that each of you are on my morning rounds of visitation and very special to me Your blogs inspire me and makes my life less stressful. Cept for you Paulette, and I would suggest you start a blog, but I know how busy you are, you beach bum you!!!

ok ordinaryjanet, I will tell ya how I do my frying pans, not saying there might be better ways, and if any of you good folks do know a better way, please share it with us. I rub the pan real,real good with olive oil. I prefer that to regular cooking oil. Then I pop it into the 300 degree preheated oven for about 2 hours. I always let a little stand and cover the bottom good. If you get any age crust on the bottom, you need to crash a "weeny roast" and put the fryer in the fire and let it burn off like they used to do way back when. Lemme know how it works for ya. Again thanks friends for your comments and your visits.

God Bless!
