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- Where Is My Life Going?

Maybe if I try being depressed the time will not go so fast. Nah, to much good stuff going on to be depressed.

A little update on the results of our church auction. Unbelievable is the only word that comes to mind. People were spending money like crazy. $100.00 for a pound of Bourbon Balls, 2100.00 for a quilt, 37.50 for a pint of my Roasted Tomato and Black Bean Soup, actually that Scotty's soup. $375.00 for a yard decoration of dried up corn stalks, with pumpkin and squash around it. It really was beautiful. People were buying Jam Cakes like they were never going to get another one as long as they live.

It was a perfect day, beautiful weather and all. Our total was right at $9,000.00 dollars. We were all very happy at church on Sunday. It wasn't all about the money. It was everyone working together and having fun, seeing people you haven't seen since last year or longer. Some people I hadn't seen since I was a kid. Old boyfriends from the third grade.

Some guys is introducing me to people I went to grade school with and I didn't even know who he was.

I was so busy visiting I missed 4 items I wanted to bid on. Yes, I live in a wonderful little country community that I wouldn't take anything for. Old Union Christian Church's Lords Auction has been going on each year since 1947. I know this how...because Louise(92) told me so.

Yes I feel good just being a small part of this.

  1. How could anyone be depressed with all that love going around? Wow -- I can't believe those bid amounts. That's amazing! Hope you and yours have a super weekend!

  2. I love your cozy and welcoming site! (I found it through The Girl Next Door linky Friday.)

  3. GREAT AUCTION!! We belong to a church the we don't attend very often anymore for a variety of reasons that all lead back to the pastor. He seems to forget the fellowship all the wonderful events create and got all hung up on the money portion. so sad, if we ever get a new pastor we will be back at that church in a flash.


  4. I love charity auctions. Bless you.

  5. What a wonderful report to read. I'm so happy for you. And it also reminds me that I haven't tried the recipe for Scotty's soup yet, although I've been intending to! Have a good weekend!

  6. The prices things so for at the auction always makes me laugh - how wonderful that it hasn't changed over the years!

  7. Absolutely wonderful! What great news. I love the life you lead!
