Happy Fall

It doesn't feel like fall here, but our temps are so much better. Hope your Saturday a deligtful one!
I thought i'd share a little bit of Autumn with you today...just what we need to start off a wonderful season.

               What better way to do so than with a poem.

"A few days ago I walked along  the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle with each step I made. The acoustics of the season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as Autumn air". ...Eric Sloane

                Happy Autumn Everyone!

Have a Restful and Peaceful Weekend!

I Got Hungry Last Eve

Hello, Greetings and All the Good Stuff!
 I put my foot down! I was tired of eating hotdogs, Micky D's, and subs. I wanted a hot, down home cooked meal! The hubster knew I meant business so, he got up just before the grocery store closed the night before and bought a boat load, (well not that much), of food. I had no idea he was gone until he came into our bedroom and asked me to follow him. Imagine my surprise when I walked into the kitchen and saw all this food on the cabinet. Mercy! I about fainted! He turned to me and with this smirk, "Don't say another word about being hungry. There's enough food there to last a life time."  Well, you know ~that~ wasn't the truth. All I could come back at him with  was, Who's gonna cook it!" He threw up his hands and walked out of the kitchen leaving me to put it all away. He was not going to get away with this!
I lay in bed that night trying to think of a comeback but, I couldn't think of one lousy thing! The next day, Tuesday 20th, I still couldn't come up with anything. I sat at the table and bawled like a dummy. (If I don't stay on top of my game, he never let's me live it down!!) I couldn't think of anything...I was defeated for the first time! I can't give in though! He'll have this going until the kids come home for the holidays! Then, I'll have to hear and re-live it all over again!

  Around 2PM, I went to the kitcken and started slinging pots, pans, knifes, mixers, bowls, etc., and the more I did this the madder I became. "I'll show don't get me like this...I'll never let you beat me!"  Or a close  2nd ...if you get my meaning! But, I finally had a plan...if only I could concertrate on bringing it together. I needed to calm myslf. I needed composure. I had my ammunition...all I need to do was spring it on him!

When calmness finally settled into my soul, I was happy, even started to hum. Ashley, my poodle, came up to me for a nice pat on the head and a big hug. He knew mom was happy now. And he knew mom's plan was on!


I finished around a quarter to 4! That including cutting and rinsing the greens with all that sand! The cake was finished and on the cabinet. Isn't it great how when needed, you can work under any circumstances ! LOL

At 4:15, the babies started to bark. They knew the hubster was home. "Dad's home",  I  said triumphly.

When he walked into the kitchen I was ready. If you could have seen the look on his was priceless! He couldn't say a word as he stood there holding Subway bags. His nose told him the story and his eyes showed his defeated! We looked at each other and I proudly said, "Gotcha Dud"! We both burst into laughter! It took me all day but, I love it when my plan comes together!!!
  Needless to say, we enjoyed the meal and he even complimented me saying, "This is the best meal you've ever cooked"! I didn't need to utter a was a clean and smooth, dare I say, even finish!!

We love this side of our marriage. Playful, yes, and I've learned to put up with this side of him. It is not competition although it may sound that way. I really had to learn, after all, I did marry a younger man! The age difference doesn't make a difference, I just have to keep up. How am I doing? Hanging in, Huh?

Hope you all have a super rest of the week and enjoy each and every minute of your life! Thanks for stopping by. We just love having you. Come on back and see what's next...At Home with Loretta.

Me and My Big Mouth

            I so sorry, can I have a kitty hug?

  It, and that small but might tongue can get you in a world of trouble. Well, I don't think i'm in trouble this time, but I can certainly say, I've taken my big foot out of my mouth and can now get down to some serious business!
  Some of the post that I read are so heartfelt and moving, I just want to reach out an help...share my love amd show you how much I really care, especially when you are sharing your troubles; are worried, depressed; or have lost a loved one...even a pet!
At the same time, with teary eyes, and fullness in my chest, I'm trying hard...being so careful not to say the wrong words that I suppose I may, inadvertly, say something that touches a nerve or causes pain.
  If this have been the case with anyone of you, please know, I am deeply, deeply sorry! Those were definitely not my intentions! I have love in my heart for everyone!
  I promise from this day forward, I will curb my long-windedness ( I didn't see this word in my own), when commenting on your blog!
  To VCG, you have my deepest apology from the bottom of my heart, I am truely very sorry and humbled.

Good Sunday Too All!

Good Morning, hope your day has started on a good note and your doing well. Our day started early with this hefty breakfast.                                        

    We have a full day and what better way to get it started than with a good hearty breakfast.

                         All I have to do is pour the coffee

Then, sit down and enjoy scrambled eggs, crisp bacon, strawberry waffles with maple syrup; fruit...grapes, sliced bananas, slices of cantalope, orange juice and coffee. Hubster will definitely enjoy this one, huh?

 Rain has been forcast by the weather stations. Let's hope our neighbors in Texas get a good down pour to put out those awful fires. So many have lost everything due to them! However, some of these fires were started by some who were uncaring and just down right evil! Authorities have been given information that may lead to their capture. Let's pray these heartless ones will be captured soon.

Importantly, pray for the thousands who lost their lives, homes, livelihood; and pray for the families of those fire fighters who lost their lives! Let's hope all of these friends and neighbors can start to rebuild and get on the road to recovery.
Hope your day a pleasant one, and you have a good week. Until safe! Loretta
