Happy Monday

Good Monday morning and welcome Through My Back Door. Grab a cup of coffee and a piece of fallen angel food cake! Yes "fallen" as it just went to nothing after I removed it from the For years we would get the best angel food cake mixes in Amish country. Mother, Deb and I would buy so many we would laugh if we got stopped the police would at first glance think that it was something Any way the last few years the ones we have gotten were less tha n we expected. I was excited to find some again last month when I was there. Well, I am really disappointed in them. I made 2 Saturday for Michaels Fathers Day cook out neither turned out the way I wanted. They both "fell". The taste was heavy too, not light. Anyway, I am glad you are back on this Happy Monday. I love Mondays, and no I am not doing laundry!  I am just being today. The last 4 weeks my life has been on fast track and today is a nothing day.
I hope all of you had a wonderful Fathers Day. If you are lucky enough to have you father, you are lucky enough. My friend Carol has a pillow at the beach that says that, except it says beach instead of father.
Dodd called me yesterday and is coming up next week for a work day. He asked me if I had made a list and I said yes. I think he thought I really didn't have one ready. He doesn't know I have been adding things to it for a while  and there are a lot of things on it. SURPRISE! I keep saying my house is falling down around me. BTW I had a call about it last week.
 I need to remove the hearts from this basket, but I like them. I told Deb I had to get with it as I haven't had anything on my table all summer. Just didn't have time.
I love when the house has its 4th of July clothes on.
Have enjoyed sitting out here when I am home. One of the things on dodds list is to pressure wash my porch! I had scrubbed it before I took this and it wasn't dry. Looks dirty. Have I told you I LOVE red geraniums?
 I am still using my stove board. Are you? I need to do something different with mine. I haven't been inspired lately, but am looking for my mo jo..
Well, I hope your Monday is as happy as mine is going to be and I am always happy when you come Through My Back door where life is good.
PS: Thought you might enjoy seeing a picture of Amelia and how she has grown. She says. "Mamaw". Yeah, that makes me happy too.
I hate this back side of me, but wanted you to see her. We are so happy to have them home.
PSS: Andrew found out I couldn't swim yesterday and was shocked! He kept saying over and over, this just
isn't right. He then preceded to show me what to do.Who knows maybe, he will be the one who teaches
PSSS:Remember to continue praying for our fellow bloggers who are still having difficulties.



  1. Your house looks so inviting in its summer clothes, Betty! I am still using my stove board too. I haven't done any summer decorating yet but I am enjoying seeing what others have done!

  2. Your home looks so pretty as always. Hope the call turns out the way you want it to. We listed ours two weeks ago. We are excited and hope it sells soon! Can't believe how much Amelia has grown. She is a doll! I know you are happy to have them home. I am not using my stove board right now. We got a new stove and the one I had was for my old HUGE stove. Daddy is going to cut it down for me to fit this one. I will use it again soon. Enjoyed your post. Have a good day!

  3. Did I miss something? I thought you decided to stay in your Anyhow..nice to see your post this morning and I am planning to have about the same kind of day. I did strip the bed, so I guess I will have to make it at some point, but I am on my last 'free' week here. The grands get out of school on Thursday, and then Grammie is the Summer Sitter! Amelia is such a cutie...nothing like a baby voice calling your name!:) Have a wonderful day, Betty! ....Lynne

  4. Home is a wonderful place. Especially on Monday.

  6. So nice to have you back in the swing of things...of course, you take such great trips..I would not blame you if you stayed on the road..Ameia is so grown up.. I am so glad you had a call about your home.. if you still interested in selling? All your talk about angel food cakes makes me want one.. I have been trying to loose weight...I can have angel food...not to I hope you do not work Dodd then again, he asked to put him to work... :) I am having a "do nothing" sorta of day too.. I just feel so guilty when I do..I know..shame on me! I am doing laundry. That makes me feel somewhat better.. Just to hot to work outside and that is where I have been working lately.. Have a great day! Blessings!

    I so enjoy your home, I bet it's where all want to come and be, it's so warm and full of love!

    PS... about the sign... if it's a pain to ship... then don't worry... just let it go... otherwise... maybe just wrap it up in paper... send it that way and see what happens? OLM
