I didn't mean to be rude and not thank you for Cindy's cake recipe.
I thought I had, but see I haven't. Thank you!
I'm going to bake one when we go to the mountains
next month, meeting up with close friends and family.
It will also include three big dogs~~
Let the fun begin as they all vie for pecking order.
Oh, that sounds like such a fun trip!
I have made the cake just in a rectangular pan and spread the frosting on top, rather than messing with 3 layers, and I think it tastes just as good.

My son just took me out to look at some land he is interested in and there was a big car/pickup wreck just 7 blocks from me. They were loading people in ambulances. Looked like the picup nailed the little white car in the right rear and pretty much turned it into a tin can. Seen locks from me is the intersection of the highway amd Main Stret.

Good morning, Liz ad Allbodies. I hope you have a lovely Saturday.
If I can get my feet to move so I'm not lurching like a drunk, I will go to the Farmer's Market.

Farmers' Market wasn't much this morning. I got a cucumber, a zucchini, and a cantaloupe.
Gosh, I remember when I used to have a huge garden every year and I would go around the neighborhood giving this stuff away. My husband always teased that he'd bet the neighbors locked their doors and pulled their shades when they saw me coming with an armload of zucchini.

My 'garden' this year is 4 tomato plants and one green pepper plant.

My dear friends, I am in desperate need of prayers for my neighbor, she found out a few weeks ago she has stage 4 lung and liver cancer, yesterday they told her she might live 2 more months, our town is holding a benefit for her today, BBQ dinner, silent auction and other activities. She retired fro the VA as an RN, her husband retired from the Air Force and their 28 year old daughter served three tours in Afghanistan and is in a wheelchair from an IED exploding. They need our prayers so much, they are some of the most, loving, giving, USA loving people I've had the pleasure to know. The husband had to quit his job and is struggling very hard just to feed his family. If you would like to help them, please contact me and I will give you their contact info so they will be sure to receive it. Love y'all!!

Good morning, Allbodies. I hope you have a lovely day.
We are Finally getting some rain. It is just a sprinkle, but I think it has been sprinkling since about 2 AM.
Liz, I have never eaten spaghetti squash, but I know a lot of people who like it.
A woman at the Farmers' Market said she used yellow squash to make bread, just like zucchini bread. I was telling her about my cousin's pork n bean bread.

Well my garden produces more then we could possibly eat, so I end up giving a lot away. I know a couple family's that really appreciate getting my fresh veggies give to them..
Have you ever had cantaloupe with vanilla ice cream? It's really good.

I have never eaten that, Missy. Sounds good.
With cantaloupe, I have always had a huge bumber crop or not a single one. Planted them all the same, treated them the same, and usually the weather didn't vary all that much from summer to summer,but it has always been boom or bust.

I love cantaloupe and all kinds of melons but never tried it with ice cream before.

Do you grow watermelons?

Take advantage of it. Put your feet up and have a nice glass of wine and a good book. I'd start a little later than 8 in the morning though.

+Good morning, Allbodies. I hope you have a great day.
We got a little more greatly appreciated rain last nigh and this morning.

Liz, I agree. Get a good book and prop your feet up and get a much deserved rest.

I am going to try to get done everything that my friend who helped me got done on Mondays. Lord help, with no feet and no hands, I can see this being an all day/ all night project. Actually, with frequent breaks, I think I can get most of it done. I can't run the heavy Dyson, but I have an Oreck that I may be able to handle.

God is So Good! Earlier this morning, younger daughter called and asked what I would think of having a friend who used to work with her, help me. I told her I couldn't think of anyone on earth I would rather have. She told me to give her a call.
This is a woman I had asked y'all to pray for a couple of years ago when she had a spot on her lung. The spot turned out to be nothing but, after getting home from the biopsy, she realized that a lung had collapsed and Drove Herself to the hospital. She is one of the sweetest, kindest, most decent people I have ever known.

She took early retirement about a year ago and daughter didn't know if she would be interested but said it would sure be worth looking into.

I called and she said she would be delighted and is going to start tomorrow!!!!

Murph, I don't really know what your health issues are but it seems you really need someone to help you.

This is wonderful news and I hope it works out for both of you,

You're such a kind hearted lady I wish the best for you.

Keep us posted.

Did you know...

... that today is Nutmeg's Birthday? Nutmeg, the fox mascot of Women's World Cup for soccer, made her first official appearance during the U.S. national team's practice in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Happy birthday, Nutmeg!
