My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Feel Good Friday - New Shoes

Not that I normally need any help feeling good, but don't you love new shoes? I am years past the 3-inch heels torture that we have all endured. I love fun comfortable shoes, no not tennis shoes, I hate those.

On Wednesday of this week I went to the mail box, 1/2 mile away, and there was a box for me from a dear friend. I love packages and surprises. Couldn't wait to get home and open it. I had them on until this morning when I had to start canning tomatoes. Had to take them off because I just knew I'd drop a big tomato on them.

The next project was to see how many outfits I could come up with to go with my new shoes. Lots! My favorite is one I'm wearing to church Sunday because my friend Sara is playing the piano. The outfit is basically from our church yard sale last week that my niece, Angie, and I went to the day before the sale to get all the good stuff. A long black skirt with cut-outs around the bottom, 25 cents, pink cami, 25 cents, black summer sweater 25 cents. All J. Crew with the tags still on. I added a black ribbon belt trimmed in gold, a black ribbon tote, and my fabulous new black and pink BIRKIES.

I am hot and boy do I "Feel Good".

Thank you dear friend for helping me "Feel Good", but you always do.

For more Feel Good Friday.

  6. Loved your blog today. You seem to put into words what we all think but never say out loud.
    I'm practicing the songs for tomorrow because I know you will be my biggest critic unless Taren, my daughter shows up. See you tomorrow.
