How good it is to see you dropping in this afternoon. I hadn't planned to post until next week, after Dasko got so many comments on his post, I figured no one would want to hear what I had to say. However, with this beautiful background I had too. My blog fairy is at it again. She does make me look good. At least I think she does. I love her and am in awe of her abilities.Visit her blog where ALL of her backgrounds are FREE.
Anyway, I am remiss, help yourself to a cup of Charleston coffee. I got it for my birthday and was waiting until something special to have it. SO today was the day. When Amanda was under going chemo I would take breakfast ingredients out to their house and cook a country breakfast, just to get her to eat, and to help Clay. Well, Andrew loved it and has been asking me again and again, when can we have one of those breakfast. So today I got up and cooked here, and they came and ate. I invited Deb and Michael too. When I cooked at their house, I always let the kids help make biscuits, so today was no different.
Here they are working hard. They are using my Mother's biscuit cutter. I bet it has cut hundreds if not thousands of biscuits over the years. We had homemade biscuits every meal growing up.
See that jar of honey in front of Mollie? That is a gift sent to me by my buddy Ken. He and Lisa send me a jar every year and I LOVE it. (I call Ken my "honey man".He is the sweetest young man, and so is Lisa.)We enjoyed it today too, along with our cubed steak and gravy. What a wonderful start to the weekend. I need to do this more often.(Have my family to eat) Linz will agree with this as she loves my biscuits, which I don't make as often as I use too.
While speaking of growing up, did any of you like country music? I loved it and was blessed to go to the Grand Ole Opry often. (My dad loved it too).
Anyway, I loved Carl Smith, along with many others, but especially Carl Smith. He was from close by and when he came back to his hometown of Maynardville to do a concert, Daddy got us almost front row seats.Do you remember when we cut out "words" to put in front of our pictures in our wallets? I had a boy "friend", who had "the worm who used to be the apple of my eye", in front of my picture in his wallet! I will never forget that.lol We took him to see Carl Smith and that is what triggered that memory.lol
Lucky me, for my birthday, I got some gift cards to Amazon,(because of my love affair with my Kindle). I found some Carl Smith cd's on there and I am in heaven.lol. So I just play my cd's and sing. Kinda like Trace over at
My cousin also has a wonderful cd, called Leave A Well in the Valley. I have been listening to it and singing along too.The words in that song have gotten me through some difficult days. He also wrote a book with that title, that is available on Amazon.
Yesterday I worked at The Hen. She has some really neat drieds all marked down. They are beautiful.
If you need paint, she has a good selection right now. It sells fast.
I still love this redware. I want more!!!lol Especially those tumblers.
Look at all the FW coverlets in stock.
Johnnie made this wonderful stepback cupboard.
I thought you might enjoy a visit out there again. This is the neatest store.If you like you can like her page on FB.
Well I am so glad you came Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS:Monday the high school girls are coming to lunch. There will be laughter here that day. Can't wait.You know God's timing is never off and I know he knew it was time for us to reconnect. I bet they agree.
PSS:Amelia is just doing great. Your prayers has helped her get where she is
PSSS: Again, bloggers, some of our blogging buddies are going through some dark days. Will you pray? God knows who they are.
