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 - And I Really Do

Thank you all so much for your get well wishes last week. I got more sympathy from you guys than from some of my family. Not unusual, I think it's a guy thing. Anyway I'm back to normal, as normal as I can be.

It really was a little "touch and go" there for a few days. Got my flu shot on Wednesday, came down with the cold/flu thing on Thursday. Had a big knot on my arm from that. And on Saturday while walking the puppies a big walnut fell out of a tree in the yard and smacked me on the top of the head. Now I had a knot on the arm and on on the head. Both hurt like hell.

People kept bringing me stuff to can, tomatoes, green beans, pears. It was just too much, so I went to bed. I have also discovered the reason children need a nap. They don't get tired and grumpy. I need a nap everyday for the same reason. So everyday at 2:00 I'm taking a nap. So if you happen to call between 2:00 and 3:00 the only thing I can say is God have mercy on your soul. I am not a happy camper if you wake me up for any reason.

So my advise to everyone is "Take a Nap Every Day" and visit Feel Good Friday every week. See you next week.


  1. That is the best plan I've heard in a long time. I LOVE naps!!

  2. I love my nap at 2:00, too. Such a luxury. Glad you are feeling better. I'm sorry, but I did laugh about the walnut on your head.

  3. I tried to take a nap one day last week and the phone had not rung all day until my head hit the pillow. I am afraid I was not very nice to the politicians people who called during that time from both parties no less and even snapped at my husband who called because I wasn't answering him on the computer and I even sent him a message that I was going to try to nap! I would love to catch a little shut eye in the middle of the day, but I don't think it is in the cards. lol


  4. I am happy you are well and yes naps are fantastic. And yes I LOATHE people who call during a nap too. I have to keep the phone on in case school calls (Emily) and 9 times out of 10 somebody calls so it is a rarity for me to close my eyes, but if I do - it is bliss.

  5. I love naps too. I meditate every day and often it is like a nap.
