Well I decided to take an impromptu trip to Tammys today. Now that she is at her new house she only is 1 hr away in Hazleton. All the leaves are changing up there, very scenic trip up. Loved spending the day with my neices. We put together a Little Tikes jungle gym thing in her playroom for the winter.
Now its off to the grocery store so I can make dinner. I am starving!

In the car on the way back to Portland. Was supposed to be such a fun weekend, right before we got to my brothers house, he got a call that his mil had passed away. 2 weeks after her cancer diagnosis. Was very sudden :( My mom and I tried to make the best of the time we were together. Had us some martini's and wine and came clean about our first experiences with weed-I musta been drunk!!
Anyways, we're taking him to Tacoma on our way back to inlaws house. Hopefully the rest of the day will be a happy one!

Hope y'all had a great weekend!

times change as i'm sure learning.
Change is good :lol: did i really say that :o

Hey! Juuude! Sounds like all good news. Yeah, things are changing as we are all getting older, and everyone around us seems to get younger. Why is that? Anyway...I believe we are soul sisters.....love of flowers and playing in the dirt, gardens....I hate cooking too! Probably the worst thing about this diet in the increase in kitchen activity! Too poor to hire someone else to do it :( Telehubby claims to like cooking......wish he'd do more of it. :D

Nik-a-nik....sorry to hear that you're pheeling so bad! Most of us in my family get migraines...no phun a'tall. Get better soon.

Guess it's the weekend...always seems a bit slower here then. Hope everybodees doin' all rite. Sloozan is cooking up a storm (no snoaugh please). Send some phood here....if you got some extra.

Manda-Ville.....sorry about your troubles. My heart goes out to you all.

Later.....Tea

Well, I is back. My ears are completely blocked and sore -- a rather tumultuous, bumpy, turbulence-ridden flight. No one cleaned up 'round here in me absence. I have all of my laundry AND all of theirs to do. :angry:
Man, I just wanna go back to where I was. The ocean, no little people to listen to, clean up or feed.... . . ...'twas heaven.. .. . <_<

Feel better, Nik! Sorry about your loss, Rachelle ... ... . ..
And thinking about Lyle . ....um, or is it Lefty? :unsure: .. . . . ...

Where is Pahteee? And Soooozle? And Jyaghnutt's back, but haven't seen much of her. . . . ......

It sounds like a downer weekend for a lot. Let me tell you about my train trip.

It started in Alliance, Ohio at 1 am. Couldn't sleep before cause I have sleeping problems (no biggy, light sleeper). Boarded an Amtrack train. Sat in the lounge car all night talking to my Grandson and smokin. God, the good old days when you could actually smoke in public, and thank God, they're gone. Pulled into Union Station in Chicago at 8 am. Spent the day doing tourist thing - Sears Tower, Art Insitute, ect. Boarded train at about 8 pm. The Cresent city. On our way to "The Big Easy".

The party started on the train. We ran into a group of travelors from Australia (they were wild and crazy guys) and a Rastifarian. We partied with them all night! Landed in NO the next morning, really tanked! Spent 2 days in NO.... Ate at Emerel's, I danced with a young punk guy, ate Alligator, and I GOT BEADS! And, a huge hangover!

Boarded train again. Goin to the Grand Canyon. After a train ride via El Paso. to Phoenix, we embarked at 3 am. The Australians were on the same train! Got a hotel room for 4 hours, took a shower and a nap, and headed back to the train station. There were the Aussies! They had spent the night in a bar and were heading for points west. They were all drunk! We got on a train to Flagstaff, and then a bus to the Grand Canyon.

It was AWSOME! Had a cabn, and spent 2 days there. Grandson got a hell of a sunburn on his earlobes. Grandaughter lost 12 lbs.

Back on the bus, then train to LA. Up the coast to San Fran, where both my son and sis live. Stayed first night in San Fran, and then spent 4 days with my sister in Pittsburg, Ca. In SF my Grandaughter turned 13. On Pier 54, I arranged a steel drum band to play happy b-day to her, and for my sis (who has a great voice) to sing "Bad Boys". One night, I made potatoe encrusted salmon and spinach salad at her house. We ate at a couple of great restuarants, and had a picnic of sandwiches and Corona on the Bay. We ate at an Ahgan restuarant in the " Haight"

Back on the train for a grueling 3-day trip back home. By this time, I was so sick of my granchilden that I never wanted to see them again! Got over that.

I'm ready for another road trip,
but this time, I won't take the Grandkids!

Susan

Have you been to the doctor?

Hey, Amanda!!!! Were those soups condensed? That's my biggest problem with recipes that have cream soups.
No Wegman's here, though.

Souzun.......your trip sounds awesome!!! I absolutely hate car trips, but I think I would love a vacation on a train.
GAWD!.......I never get to go anywhere! :(


Hubby decided he wanted to be a pirate for Halloween, so we picked up some stuff at garage sales on Saturday. Such a gorgeous day! Went dancing today!
I am pooped!!!!!

Of course! Bacon!!! :lol: Did I ever tell you this little story? When I was growing up, there were many of us. My mother was often concerned about feeding us all enough (btw, we all had all we needed....this is not a poor us story.....but then again, times were very different then). Anyway, many times we all got small portions of what ever we were having...especially things that we didn't get often....like BACON (!) So, when I was (so-called) grown up and on my own, I decided I could have as much as I wanted of anything I wanted (wonderful phreedom), and proceeded to buy, cook and eat an entire pound of bacon. Well! You may be able to imagine just how very sick all of this greasy bacon made me. Couldn't touch the stuff for years without feeling queazly. I am proud to admit that now I can eat bacon.....love bacon.....could be tempted to eat an entire pound in one sitting....except for my stupendous-iron-self-control (and the fact that I do not want to be sick from it ever, ever again). Love bacon.....right up there with coffee...it is.

How're y'all doin this loverly a.m.? Probably holidaying whilst some of us poor stiffs has to work!
