Still have not gotten a new and wonderful computer. Instead, I am making do with Sweet Man's computer. I did kinda tweak it though. I downloaded all the extranious (BS) data that he kept on this baby and make sure I download all my junk to my external drive. This actually runs a little faster than gerbils on a wheel now.
So much for the update.
All of the people at my house like Elvis have left the building for two days in a row. Whoooooo Hooooot. The silence is not only golden but much coveted. I can actually hear the dogs snoring, the refrigerator working and the birds in the backyard fussing. Lovely this spot in time.
I even worked in some time to enjoy the backporch as it has been cloudy for two mornings in a row and the hummingbirds have been quite busy pestering each other and the dogs.I also have taken the time to write 3 more tales of the fantasy variety starring....drum roll please.....gnomes and hobgoblins. Once again it's that consistency thing that accounts for my drifting off into the world of the fae, gypsy fortune tellers and dress up for my grands.
And cooking....it is the sure way to tell that nesting is commencing here at the Cuckoos Casa. I have had an urge to actually cook something after a very hot and fast mealed summer. I would like to invite you to take a look at Deep South Dish. Ms. Mary is a phenom when it comes to hearty and homecooked recipes. Last night, we had her skillet lasagna and for the first time in a very long time the kids actually asked to have this one again. Tonight is Mary's Chicken and Dumplings Casserole.....yummers to the max.
I don't know about you but I get in a rut when it comes to thinking about what to serve for dinner.....that the kids will enjoy and Joe will actually think is real dinner. That's where Mary has made her presence known again. Her site has a really great search feature and you can find everything needed for a party, a casual dinner or snacks for watching football and she can be found on FB as Deep South Dish, with a new recipe everyday. And to top it all off.....she is a really nice person too. Is always willing to answer questions and is just down to earth. I love her. When I get cooking, Mary is who I go to.....hope you will too.
Well I have taxed the gerbils far too long and also need to get back to the listing on Etsy, if it's up and running. Nice to be back among the blogging.
Smooches and Squoozes, OmaLinda
