This is a picture of my dad when he was in the army many years ago. He died in March, 2000 at the age of 78. Happy Father's Day to all the Dads, Granddads, Sons and Husbands everywhere. Have a blessed day. Jo
Take all these fresh vegetables and make a wonderful dish. Don't know what it is called, I made this several years ago when I had an abundance of ingredients. Cut the onion in slices, chop the tomato, zucchini and the basil. Italian seasoning, fresh ground pepper, salt, olive oil and butter.
Put the olive oil and butter in a hot skillet. When the butter melts add the onions and zucchini and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook about 2 more minutes. Add the basil, let cook another minute, stir well and you are done. Eat and enjoy. If you have any leftovers the next day it is good served over pasta.
We have blueberries. Go away birds!! We have plums! Last year the frost killed the little ones but not this year. Now if I can just keep the birds away from the trees. I found some flowers that wanted their picture made. This one was hiding behind the leaves. This one is on the top step of the front porch. These are blooming in several places in the yard. I got these from a friend several years ago. And look what I found in the garden! Can't wait to try the tomatoes. These are the first one, but I know they won't be the last. The vines are hanging full. Let's start eating!!!
Yesterday when Roger got home from work as he came down the steps in the front yard there was a big black snake laying in the way. This makes the third one in less than a week. Where are they all coming from? Well as you can he was back again this morning and I got several pictures of him. He's about 4 foot long. He's living under the crosstie steps in our front yard. Click on the picture to make it larger.
This is Motorboat, MoMo for short. He got his name because he purred so loud when he was little and he is also crosseyed so maybe he would see 2 snakes. I hear that a cat can charm a snake. Maybe I need to send him outside and see what he can do. But........... as you can see from his big mouth he is getting very sleepy. Of course he loves to sleep so maybe not. He could be dreaming about the snake. We will never know. Thanks for dropping by and until more snakes everyone have a blessed day. Jo
Our little home away from home. The weather was nice except for a few rain showers.
Roger getting ready to do a little fishing. Maybe we'll have fish for supper tonight.
Needless to say we had no fish for supper. The clouds came rolling in and we had a good storm. Lots of thunder and lightning. So back to the camper until it passes by. Good time to take a little nap. We had a good time and did get plenty of much needed rest.
I live in Alabama with my husband, 2 cats,3 dogs and a tank full of fish. We've been married 11 wonderful years. We have 3 grown children between us and 5 grandchildren. We live a simple life. We love going camping when we have the time. I love crafting, making cards using rubber stamps and the Cricut Expression, scrapbooking, yard sales and collecting things. I worked for a local newspaper until the end of October,2009 when I lost my job. I had been there for almost 41 years. So now what do you do, you either start over somewhere else or just retire and I choose to try the retired route. I'm sure it will be fun not having to go to work everyday with all the stress. This will be my first summer at home in a long time but I'm sure I can find plenty to do. We are both christians and attend a wonderful church.We put God first and everything else just falls into place. We are truly blessed.
