Sunday Stealing and Aw...Mondays and Love is...

 I did not participate the past two weeks with Sunday Stealing. There were technical difficulties and I simply forgot to join them. Hopefully next week....


We did not take many food photos but as everyone was leaving we took a group photo. Minus Brody who said he had enough of everyone and wanted to go home! His ipad needed charging and he did not want to wait for it so he is the missing kid in the photo. Brother Blake and sister Addy were happy to take a group photo. It was a nice day with good weather too.

Just a few  belated Thanksgiving wishes .

Love is....has been with me since I met my sweetheart in 1975.

Tea Time On Tuesday , Happy Tuesday and Maxine Cracks Me Up


A pretty Tea Time find at Pinterest.

On a cold day like today I like to drink tea. My son Jeremy brought me a Chai latte, hot this morning. I made a cup of Earl Grey Lavender with a nice frothy top later. Makes me happy and very content. 

Although these petit fours  look lovely for a tea time break I would prefer my mom's Saint Joseph Cream Puffs:


Although this is a Pinterest find, my mom filled her's with real whipped cream.  Many people fill the St. Joseph Cream Puffs with a custard filling. My mom made her cream puffs so they were light as air. I have never found one that could compare.

I thought my Tuesday Tea Time would fit in nicely with Happy Tuesday.

Maxine is always on target with life matters.

 Bev is having some technical difficulties  so I decided to post Ten Things About Me here today.

1. I love Dr. Kevin Lehman and his books on the Birth Order. My kids think I favor their younger brother Nick. It just isn't true. He is the youngest and I was the youngest, so we relate to each other. Have you ever read the Birth Order books?

2. When I worked a full time job I had helped several people in difficult situations. They were people I knew nothing about and it gave me great joy to see a smile creep across their face.

3. A high school chum crashed my car in front of a funeral home and I never let another soul drive my car when I was a teen and young lady. Nope Never. Nada.

4. I was on a bowling league when I was in the 4th grade. I loved it, but to be fair, my mom was a great bowler. She loved Earl Anthony the pro bowler and I followed him because of my mom. He was left handed and we both were left handed too.

5. When I was small two of my older siblings teased me that I was adopted because I had blue eyes. Both of my grandmother's had blue eyes so I wondered, if anyone was adopted, it sure wasn't me. hahaha

6. Maybe you know this favorite fact about me but my father was a semi pro baseball player long before I was dreamed of. I miss him every day, I miss his knowledge of the game and I am very proud that I was his daughter.

7. I remember playing on the playground at my Catholic school when the nuns gathered us all and told us President John F. Kennedy had been shot and killed. I remember that day like it was yesterday.

8. I met two of the four Monkees when I was 13. My friend Bobbie, a California girl was visiting relatives in my hometown and we baked them a cake and took it to their hotel. We met Mike & Micky.

9. I love music and don't have a musical bone in my body! I have been to at least a dozen concerts from Edgar Winter, Led Zeppelin, John Denver & Loggins and Messina. I saw Barbara Mandrell with my oldest girl Noelle at the Colorado State Fair and we waited forever to get her autograph. I remember seeing Alabama with my sister there too and Charlie Pride. 

10. I loved growing up in my neighborhood in BoJon Town where everyone knew each other and neighbors would correct us and we never had a care because we were so well loved.


I like to dress up our Thanksgiving Table too. Thanks to Dolly and Billy from The Family Circus. They have always made me smile and I enjoy these simple pleasures . The come from a time when life was simple and more people were kind.
