Hi BJ, it IS so good to be home. Would you believe I slept the afternoon away? Guess I was worn out. I do like to forget my age and do too much. I guess it caught up with me. Smile.

I just read your peach dumplings post. I had a good laugh but I KNOW they tasted great. You put a whole peach inside that pastry???

Your milk glass basket is very pretty. Baskets are always catching my eye. Your knock out roses are the same color as mine. So pretty in pink. This year mine have grown soooo large. I just put them in last fall. I too love Lynn and all her pigs. Lucky you to win such a lovely vintage giveaway.

Gotta cook supper. MY dh is loving that I am cooking. All I am cooking is a burger tonight. We have home grown tomatoes to go with.
He loves a burger.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Love ya, Jeanne

BJ, You are the sweetest. You just have that good old Texas goodness. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such an uplifting message. I was feeling quite inadequate with my blogging and abilities. You made me feel so much better. Thanks for following me, I hope I don't disappoint. You are the greatest!

Life on the Edge said...

Oh BJ, that is just the most beautiful basket! You made it even prettier with those roses and candles. Yes, I have been bad and not been on blogger again, but am back again. I'm really going to try to be better. My new sweetie keeps me so busy though, and so does my home! Life is good. I finally re-dressed my blog and posted again, and have a few more posts that I am getting around.

Take care!
