Dog Tired Friday


Wishing you all a great day and happy holiday weekend. 

I/we had an eventful roller coaster of a week with many more ahead. 

I am traveling between home and rehab several times a day.  

Thankfully it is only 9 blocks and free parking.  I can park just steps from the door.   

My Cowboy is very needy and clinging.  It is draining me.  

His illness is straining his recovery. 

I/we cherish your prayers.

Foodie Friday

 Good Morning.  Are you happy it's 


I have had an odd week.  It's been hard to tell what day it is.  

The Cowboy went into the hospital last Tuesday.  He is stable but they are having trouble in figuring out where and what the infection is.  

Please say a prayer for us! 

And now here are the dinner plates I fixed myself . . . 

Frozen Chopped Collard Greens.  They were way better than I expected.  I cooked Bacon and poured half the drippings in and then covered with homemade Veg stock. 
I had Mushrooms sauted in Butter and some drippings.  And 2 pieces of Bacon. 
And here is a little better pic.  I was happy with this meal. 
My meal Thursday was O.K. I had this plan . . . 
I cooked my Rice and then went to get Chili Rellenos out of freezer.  

As you can see I ended up with a piece of Grilled Corn from freezer.  And Jalapeno Poppers the Cowboy bought.  They were not good. 

This was the Cowboys meal on Wednesday or Thursday . . . 
He ate a few bites of Fish and Rice but was not chewing well yet. 
Left over store brand canned Black Eye Peas.  The best I have had in a long time! 

So good I love fresh Spinach.  This is the last.  It sure doesn't go far.  A few Tomatoes brand an Egg Roll.  They cook great in the Air Fryer! 
Tuna Casserole for 1.  Wasn't it sure of ratios but it worked.  I used half a can of Cream of Celery which I liked much better than Mushroom.  I don't see a difference in flavor.  
I don't care for the bits of Mushrooms in the Soup. 

LOL this is the person that had Mushrooms as a main course!   

Dinner tonight? 
Stay tuned!

Wordless Wednesday Cruisin'Galveston


Tea Time Tuesday


Good Morning today I have a little  different Tea Time post.

For the last several  weeks we have been unable to go into our Music Craft Studio . . . 

I saw this on Fb . . . 

I thought it would be fun to collect some Tea Pot birdhouses to share  . . .

I love these clever ideas.  I think the Birds do too.
