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 - Am I Having Fun Yet!

Last week or sometime, my niece had suggested I go to the tanning salon. If nothing else just to get warm. Why hadn't I thought of that! Well let me tell you how that went.

First you shovel the walkway. I do this before I shower, because I will be frozen when I come back in and can jump in the shower to defrost. Now for the getting dressed, two pair of long underwear (the silky kind, in case I'm in an accident), jeans, sweatshirt, socks, that are good for 45 below zero and boots. Now comes the scarf, hat and down coat. I also put those little "hot hands" in my gloves. Of course I have to go to the bathroom now.

I have used the remote starter for my car so it will be toasty warm when I get in. Wrong! The last time I was in the car I turned the heater off when I got out. It doesn't matter I can hardly get in anyway with all the clothes I have on.

I am at the tanning salon. Do you know how long it takes to get all those clothes off? I don't care, I have 15 minutes of pure wonderful heat. I don't care if I look like a lobster when I get out. Absolute heaven!

Have you ever tried to put long underwear on when you are hot and kinda sweaty? It took twice as long to get dressed again. Plus now I'm getting that burning sensation like I might have stayed in too long, and I'm really hot.

I'm out, might as well get a little exercise. There is a Super Wal-Mart in the same shopping center so I thought a good power walk inside, that would be perfect. You know how all the old people do. You don't power walk with that many clothes on, plus everyone looks at you like you're stealing something. I'm going home.

Undressed again. I have never seen a lobster as red as I am. It is jammie time and please don't ask if I'm having a Feel Good Friday.


  1. Oh, my God - I needed that laugh this morning! I guess that's what you get for taking my advice, huh?

  2. No tanning salons for me, Bev. I've already done enough damage to myself enjoying the Nebraska summer sun.

    Laughing at all the clothing you put on. How cold is it there?

  3. I laughed out loud. I hope you aren't sunburned too badly. I have done that before. I do admire your adventuous spirit. I can hardly get myself out to my car and it is only in the 30's out there.

  4. oh, now that's just plain sad! wishing you a better saturday!!

  5. That tanning sounded wonderful! Nothing like sunshine...fake or make you feel warm all over! I hope you're still not glowing...:)JP

  6. LOL.... You can keep the tanning salon. I would rather hang out at Walmart with all the other Old Geezers :-)


  7. Soak in a hot bath. Much easier than getting dressed to go to the tanning salon, only to have to take it all off again.

  8. Sounds like another good reason to join the jammie girl movement! You'll be safer!

    Hope your weekend is wonderful.

    Also, your new background is very pretty.

  9. Oh my gosh Beverly I have laughed all the way through this post while I’m having my Saturday morning coffee. I was right there with you and feeling your exasperation for the crazy day that it was. I’m glad the heat felt good though--now get some cocoa butter and aloe and dream of being at the beach :) LOL
