That....THAT would be a chunk of money laying in the parking lot.

Mixed with my tears.

THAT is NOT blood, but that would be a present for that guy that I like so much. An expensive aged in oak for 18 years from Portugal present for that guy that I like so much.

Or should I say that WAS a present for that guy that I like so much.


And if he reads this before Christmas, which he probably will, then Merry Christmas and smell my left shoe, cuz it smells really good right now.  In fact, it smells like it was aged for 18 years in an oak barrel rather than smelling like a shoe.


Today was my Meals on Wheels day and more importantly, it was my last day with my dear friend Josephine.  At the young age of 95, she is moving out of state with her grandson and his family.

I will miss her.  Lots.  Close to 3 years of weekly lunches...3 years of spending time with a woman that I have grown to cherish.

I decided to run a few errands when I got a call from M inviting me to lunch, which I gladly accepted.  I had to wait a few minutes in the ugly winter weather for him.


I'm telling you...nothing beats blue skies and palm trees in December!
Greek salad from Daphnes...oh my.  You know me and my greek salad...we go hand in hand.
Came home carrying a rather large gift for my littlest I LOVE being an Aunt, to a bunch of trumpets.  Lots of trumpets.  Little house.

But I do love my son who is moving home for break.  He is beyond excited to be moving home and sharing a room with Brian...BEYOND excited.

(but I am!)
Tonight is the 1st night in 9 days that we are all home for supper.  Unbelievable.  I am actually cooking a meal that we will all sit and eat together....pork roast, roasted potatoes and green beans.

Unless I drop it.



  1. Why don't you try getting a really exciting Christmas gift for your husband like I am doing? We're going to buy each other a new office chair!

    The blue skies and palm trees in December? Check out my blog tomorrow, and I'll hopefully have some photos of what a REAL winter is. Storm predicted to hit at 2am with about a foot of snow.

  2. At least it wasn't a 25 year old single malt scotch. Now THAT would be sad!

  3. I was just reading your profile and you said you like any kinds of music that has words EXCEPT "real" country music. What's "real" country music? Is it anything like Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Sugarland,and Kelly Pickler.

  4. Anonymous is Matt on the previous posting. He thinks you have some issues since you take photos of food. And now that you don't like country music, well..... Let's just say he adores Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Kellie Pickler and Julianne Hough. (young and blonde)

  5. The only reason he likes them is that they are hot and he is a male.

    You should have seen, I mean heard Linda Ronstadt in her prime Matt!
