Sunday Morning Coming Down.....

JOHNNY CASH made it a hit ....

but it was
 KRIS KRISTOFFERSON , one of the world's best song writers, that WROTE it.

That song plays around in my mind quite often while I make our 

I like to serve our breakfast on a tray but......

 ....all my trays are packed down deep SOMEwhere at our new place...

I've prepared my favorite wicker desk for a light breakfast, with some of my
favorite things included.

I've decided that Mr. Sweet and I should have at LEAST one serving of fresh fruit a day
and breakfast is a perfect time.

YES....I KNOW they have been telling us that for YEARS....:) and blackberries....favorite fruits.

A beautiful potted plant from my sweet boy and his generous family on MD....

(every mom MUST know that I will save that pretty little pink, net flower forever and ever, Amen. :>)

Flowers ALWAYS make any meal about 1000 times
 ......beautiful, heavy glass paperweight with
that my two sweet children gave me for 
a Mother's Day many, MANY
years ago.
 It's one of my heart's most loved TREASURES.
 My most favorite magazine of ALL TIME
Mary Engelbreit's


I think ....I'm pretty sure....
that I cried a bit when it was

I have saved several of the magazines
and I love nothing better than to browse thru one
while I am having breakfast.

 THIS was such a great breakfast...
that pretty blue and white cup held cup after cup of

(It is usually around $8 but I found some at WALGREEN DRUG on sale ....1/2 price....
so, don'tchaknow that I bought  


so the HEALTHY BLUEBERRIES came in the most delicious
SISTER SHUBERT package of sweet rolls...


promise !!
*heavy sigh
they are sooo good for the soul.

I hope you have a FRUITY KIND OF DAY...

But did you stumble through your closest for your clothes and find your cleanest dirty skirt??? LOL
I love that song - love Kris ( did you know he wrote Bobby McGee for Janice Joplin ( who he was living with at the time - and apparently was madly in love with her? ) I just found out that bit of trivia a couple of years ago - you've probably known it forever...........
Beautiful photos btw - I got a little sidetracked!
( somewhere far away a lonely bell is ringing )

I hope you have a wonderful day too! Enjoy the long weekend and that hot coffee in the morning.

Best wishes,

Kris - and Willie Nelson - and Roger Miller are our FAVORITE song writers! I am listening to Don Williams sing 'I Believe in You' - not by any of the above three but still pretty and one of my favorites!

So are you IN your new place? I'm not sure where to PUT you - in my minds eye!

And I LOVE learning from Suzan Sweatman that Kris K wrote Bobby McGee!!! I am going to visit HER now!!!

Blondie's Journal said...

What a beautiful, healthy way to start the day! And just as pretty, tray or no tray! I love KK, that whole generation of singer/songwriters, Carole King, James Taylor...the stories those songs tell!

Hope you're having a wonderful holiday weekend!


Pondside said...

I love Kris too - and that song!
I'm glad to read that you ate lots of fruit to make up for that sinful sweet roll!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love fruit in the morning! :) muffins work for me! lol. Oh that Kris, he can write a song for sure! Enjoy your weekend!


Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

Your food always looks so good. Have a great weekend!

Sarah said...

BJ, this looks like a delicious way to start the day. You know I adore ME too. I have all the issues I ever received of Home Companion. Love revisiting them!
Enjoy your weekend.......Sarah

Vee said...

You're the master at creating a cozy mood. Makes me want to get up early and bake scones. : >

The Tablescaper said...

Your new header is adorable!

Thank you for being a part of Seasonal Sundays.

Stacey said...

Some of my favorite things in this post! My husband always know KK songs. Cracks me up that he knows the writer.

We are eating lots of fruit right now too. I'm surprised how satisfying it is. :)

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Breakfast looks so yummy....
I loved ME also and had all her magazines, but I finally had to share with my friend as I was keeping way tooooooo many magazines. Sure wish she would start up her magazine again.
Have a great weekend.

susie @ persimmon moon cottage said...

Great photos!

ME's Home Companion was such a great magazine. I'm so glad that I saved every one of them. They are still fun to look at. I met her at a book signing and she was very nice.

One of the folk art snowman that I made back in the 1990's is in the photograph on the book cover/dust jacket of the Mary Engelbreit's 1995 Christmas book, so that was the book at the booksigning.

Lynn said...

Looks like a great way to start the day BJ! Lovin' your R,W&B header too! Happy Memorial Day:@)

Madeline's Album said...

I can not have sweet rolls but I do eat lots of fruit not only at breakfast but all day long. I love your new header. Have a blessed day and a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Madeline

Theresa said...

Good Sunday morning SWEET friend! You always make me smile:) AND HUNGRY!!! Have a blessed and fruity kinda day in your neck of the woods! HUGS!

Beverly said...

Happy Sunday, dear BJ. It all looks good and pretty, too.

I love Johnny and Kris and that song.

I just finished in the kitchen for a while. We are having company for a hamburger cookout this afternoon, and I wanted to get as much ready as possible.

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

The most important part of Juicing, for me is.... We get lots of fresh veggies/fruits, all in one cool drink.

Otherwise, we just don't consume the fresh veggies/fruits, which we should.

We Juice once a day.


Cheryl @ TFD said...

I loved this post! Your photos are just beautiful. So many things to comment on, but I'll just say that I love KK's music and ME's Home Companion, too. I'm sorry to say that I've only got a couple of her magazines left. Wish I'd saved them all.

About fruit...I'm on an orange eating kick right now. Love them.

Have a happy weekend!

Rettabug said...

Not being a fan of country music, I had never heard that song. It is playing right now & I can see why you love it!!

I, too, miss ME's Home Companion magazine & could kick myself for not keeping any issues. Phooey!

Your photos are charming but its your thoughts & the words you use to express them that make your posts so much fun to read, BJ.

Have a safe Memorial Day!

Penny from Enjoying The Simple Things said...

Love Kris...and Johnny both. Your breakfast sounds wonderful BJ.

Lady Jane said...

Ya sure you ate more fruit, lol... Enjoy the weekend.

Carlene @ Organized Clutter said...

Why is it that stuff we like is always disconinued. That even happens with makeup. I wear the same make up every day and then can't seem to find it again after a few years. Your sweet rolls look wonderful. It's nice to get flowers from a son!

Audrey said...

Beautiful photos and delicious breakfast. I eat a lot of fruit too and I would not mind having one of those sweet rolls.
Have a happy week.
Thanks for sharing.

SmilingSally said...

Love that beautiful blueberry blue.
Thanks for playing.

Happy Blue Monday, BJ.

Fashion Momma said...

Everything is so pretty. I played too. Mine are here and here.

Ann said...

Yum, French vanilla coffee-a favorite of mine too. How lovely is everything as always. I agree the pink flower is a keeper!! Hope you are having a great Memorial Day.

LV said...

I would think I had died and gone to heaven if I had a meal like that. A bowl of cereal just is not the same. Enjoy it and your day of rest.

Annesphamily said...

I think you better get a hold of LV and get her over to your place for a nifty breakfast! You have a way with words and telling stories about fruit! Hee Hee!
Kris K is also a favorite of mine. He served our country in the military too. A shame most all of the politicians today do not! I think it ought to be law!
Always fun to stop here for a visit!

Jeanne said...

Hi bj, Thank you for your comment today. We are in Fl. celebrating our grands HS graduation. Fun times.

We love to eat our fruit each day as well. Your breakfast, the flowers and missing your dad is the perfect post. I too still miss my daddy. Johnny Cash and Kris K. are Icons in the country music world.

Happy Memorial Day too bj.
Love, Jeanne

Unknown said...

Oh my, you make that breakfast look so yummy. I think I am going to take a break and have some fruit.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

We may have some things we differ in, but certainly not many. Kristofferson is a favorite singer and songwriter of mine...and that song is one of my favorites!

I am hoping you have had some lookers since last I heard! I imagine you are anxious to get moved. You are certainly handling it well. I felt like bonking my head against a wall before it was all over.

The food looks wonderful and the flowers are delightful!
