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

Thank Goodness for Air Conditioning - Feel Good Friday

A wonderful friend has been suggesting(bugging) I write about "air-conditioning for Feel Good Friday. It's not that I'm not grateful for air-conditioning, it's just boring to write about. I guess I feel good because I have it but I think it's one of those things I take for granted.

Our whole nation has has an unusually hot and humid summer. Here in the country in Lexington, Ky, we have had over 25 plus days of temperatures over 90 and the pass week over 100. Normally I'm not a big fan of lots of air conditioning but this week I am very grateful for it.

I don't care how hot it is there is a limit to the cold I need to be comfortable. There is something wrong with having to take a medium weight jacket to the grocery so you don't freeze to death before you come out to the 95 degree temperature outside. That is just not healthy! What happen to conserving energy?

When I was growing up, about the time Moses was 9, we didn't have air conditioning. Granted we lived in the country with lots of shade trees around the house and we did have fans. But I never remember being really hot or uncomfortable. We played outside all day and had little rubber swimming pools to cool off in. We are all so spoiled!

I really believe the reason the heat doesn't bother me as much as some people is because I don't have my air cranked down to 69 degrees. A nice comfortable 78 degrees is just fine with me and if the outside temperature drops to 65 at night the air goes off and the windows go up.

Yes, having air conditioning makes me "feel good", but remember too much of a good thing is not always healthy. For more "Feel Good Friday" please visit The Girl Next Door Grows Up.

Are you happy Lucy?

  1. Yep, I have been very thankful for air conditioning these last couple of weeks. Love the new "In My Opinion", by the way.
