Blog 365 #48 or #50 Something... Foodie Friday
. . . This is how my life is now. Last week's Foodie Friday . . .
Welcome back to Foodie Friday sorry I have been away.
Lately I am just crazy busy.
I bought Christmas Stockings marked down 70%. We haven't had stockings in years.
I put them up for Valentine's Day and look what I got . . .He was so cute. But you know what I did! My stocking was so full. It was a fun treat.
First may I point out the cheap plastic spoon! Seriously?
I am not a fan of Strip Steak because I don't cook it well. But it turned out better than usual. I might be getting the hang of it.

Meet the Character Andi Grace The Low Country Dog Walker Series by Jackie Layton
I’m Andi Grace Scott. I’m a dog walker in Heyward Beach, South Carolina. At thirty years old, I’m the matriarch of our little family. Nate is my younger brother, and Lacey Jane is the baby of the family. We’re a tight group, and there’s nothing we won’t do to help each other.
In Bite the Dust, I’m a suspect in Peter Roth’s murder. In Dog-Gone Dead, Nate is accused of murdering one of the men in our town. Of course he was innocent, and there’s no way I wasn’t going to help catch the real killer.
I never back down from a challenge, whether it’s raising my siblings or trying to make better decisions about my eating habits. Taking care of others is also something that comes naturally to me, whether it’s a person or animal. My German shepherd appeared one day, and she’s been with me ever since.
I’ve always lived in Heyward Beach, and the locals are like family. For example, Tony Russo, owns the local pizza restaurant. The only thing bigger than his smile is his heart. After my parents died, he kept an eye on us to make sure we never went hungry. Doc Hewitt gave me a job in his veterinary clinic despite my lack of experience. A few years later, with Doc’s blessing, I started my dog walking business. The flexible schedule allowed me to keep up with my siblings and their after-school activities.
I’m not a matchmaker for people, but I have a talent of pairing animals with people. My long-term goal is to build a dog shelter where no animal ever fears for his life. They will be well cared for and loved as long as they are with me.
To the dismay of our local sheriff, I have a knack for solving murders. It’s hard to believe Heyward Beach has so much crime, but I’m doing my best to catch the killers. I’ve also had a few close calls, but I try to play it safe and not do anything too stupid.
Come visit us in Heyward Beach for fun and relaxation. Just don’t come our way if you’re planning to commit murder. I’d rather chat with you over a cup of coffee than question you about an alibi. Hope to see you soon!

The Weather winter has been on the island. Cooler days and nights and wind. A couple days last week I could where shorts.
Outside my window
My porch with empty pots. I need to clean the porch
Right now I am trying to stay positive
Thinking and Pondering always my husband's health. The daily roller-coaster and the future

On the t.v. tonight a new Bobby Flay cooking show he is host. Also watching a chef touring Spain with his daughters

Friday Pot Stickers and Ham, Pineapple Fried Rice
My Reading Pile
My To Do List
Clean the front porch. Bring in my empty pots and get them ready to refill.
I wonder if I can get my crochet blanket finished this week?
I think I am going to make a few test blocks to practice the filler pattern I hope to use to fill in the points.It will be a challenge because I can't find instructions but it is a simple stitch. I think I can figure it out. I hope!
Plans for the week Our favorite week! Payday week. We will go to grocery store. Post Office and Prayer Room. I hope to go to Big Lots and look at thier Valentine's stuff. And hopefully get me a mug like I got him for Christmas. Dollar Tree for normal cleaning stuff, Valentine's and flower pots. I hope they still have the ones I saw a couple weeks ago.
What I am creating daily trying to create a Happy and Welcoming home. I fail alot!
My simple pleasure A day with no chores
Lesson learned this week
Looking around the house I need to get some laundry put away and some blankets and quilts put away.
From the camera
Fun pictures to taken at the park . . .
Some days my husband’s health is good and he is able go to the Prayer room at Amy Lane the Christian Gift Shop here in town.
Many days he feels bad and is in bed most of the day.
It is a roller coaster ride and difficult.
His interest in food and appetite changes daily.
Hope you have a great weekend and week ahead.
