ANYway....I made my hungry self breakfast and
I've had SO many emails asking if we ever ate CEREAL...
OMGosh, YES...a lot.....a lot of cereal. We both love it and HE likes the kind that gets soggy in milk...like FROSTED FLAKES..
We both LOVE roosters....and we both LOVE our tablecloths....:-)
Drop by to see her beautiful fall creations...and she just MIGHT show you that
...remember...I am the one that CAN live by bread alone.
It is so my downfall.
We go to a nice restaurant and I fill up on their delicious, hot and buttered bread
before my meal arrives....*sigh
You can see our grass is still a LITTLE green...
but....is that fallish leaves I see on it ?
Pots and pans do NOT look good on a table
as you can see, very few flowers left on them....
Boy, have I enjoyed them all summer...
Mr. Sweet said our whole backyard looked like a giant BOUQUET..
* These are the dishes I bought NEW (faint and fall over dead) at
WALMART last fall.
I am just using a larger plate from another dish set for my charger...
Had some of that great STRAWBERRY freezer jam....I hope ya'll will try making some..it really is good and so so easy..NO COOKING ! amazing!!
Just as I got inside....another light and short shower...
Ummmm....I'll take any rain I can get....
I am linking with:
SIMPLE TREASURES THURSDAY
SHOW AND TELL FRIDAY
FRIDAY FINDING BEAUTY
TICKLED PINK FRIDAY
Thanks so much to all these pretty ladies, hosting.
Be sure to go by and see some of the great offerings.
Lots of BLOGGING EYE CANDY..
**NOTE....since these photos were taken, a silly drunken man broke into
our back yard, smashed my pretty table, threw my chairs all over, totally tore up our little ourdoor fireplace...glass everywhere...bwaaaaaa...my pretty table is gone.
Oh, and he broke out the storm window over my kitchen sink....
Never did get inside tho....the police were here in less than 5 minutes and took him to jail.
I never did see the man.
Not enuf damage to collect from insurance.
We met the intruder today..
A not-yet-twenty student at Texas Tech..
He is sooo sorry and says he will take care of everything.
At this moment, he is cleaning all the glass off our patio...
cleaning all the blood on bricks, house and glass (bless his heart..he cut himself when
he tried to get thru the kitchen window)
It scares us so much that, had he been able to get inside, being as drunk and out of
control as he was, he wouldn't have been one to try to talk to...and Mr. Sweet
might have shot him....or, the policeman told us they would have shot had he resisted arrest.
It scared us so bad.
I would have just died right there with him...I just know it.
He isn't working...but trying to find a job. He will pay for everything as he can..and
I believe he will. I really would like to pay for it all..he has bail bond payment, a $300.00 fine for PUBLIC INTOXICATION and not sure what else......but TAYLOR needs to be
responsible and just maybe he will slow down on the drinking. Plus, he said he WANTS to pay for the window, which will be about a hundred, I think...the thick glass for the patio table will be a lot more....the replacement of the chiminea, probably around $200...the broken fence pickets shouldn't be too much.....and, of course, he doesn't want his family to know of this happening to him, way away from home and all alone. Bless his heart.....
I like him a lot...he's a really sweet young man that just doesn't realize yet what
drinking that much can do. He says he didn't start out to get drunk...it just happened..
I said, "I know....I was 20 once....a long time ago. "
He just smiled really big.....
I really don't care one stinkin' bit about that ole table...
I just want Taylor to be safer when he drinks again...
and, being nearly 20, I'm pretty sure he WILL drink again..
Drinking...a scary thing to be out.of.control.
and have NO memory of the night before...
bad things come of this most of the time.
I just thank the Lord that Taylor didn't get hurt...or shot...
