and I am up an at ‘em basking in the warm glow of my furnace set at 70 degrees. The end of the week is to be warmer here, warming up to 80 degrees. Off with the furnace and on with the fan.
Now to get caught up with the weekend. I went to the Texas Roadhouse in East Peoria Friday night with my daughter and son in law. They have the best homemade rolls there that are served with honey butter. Yummmmm! The kids had steaks and I had chicken with enough to bring home to eat on Saturday as I was making the pies.
New crisis here at my place. The stool in the bathroom is leaking a small amount around the base on the floor. When I called maintenance this morning they hurried and sent someone over. It will probably be flooded in there when he gets done as it is the same guy who has been working on my back door for over 2 weeks. Which isn’t nearly finished yet.
Boston Boy asked if I had taken the picture at the top of my blog. Yes, the picture was taken at my old home in the fall last year. I always called them painted daisies although that is just the common name for them. Carole has published a photo of this flower on her flickr page that is awesome!! She can also tell us the proper name for them. I do miss my flowers at home as I had lots of perennials that came up every year. I do have photos of them all so I can look at then in a slide show and it is almost as good.
Well, the kid (22 years old) has left my bathroom with a promise to come back this afternoon and finish the back door. I just took a look in the bathroom. No water on the floor now, he said he tightened some bolts. As for coming back this afternoon to finish the door, I will not be holding my breath as that is detrimental to ones health.
Now to put all of those negative thoughts behind me and focus on the positive. That is the only way to deal with life, along with a daily talk with The Man Upstairs. Remember that old song with that title sung by Kay Starr? I do remember it and if I was posting this to spaces I could post it for you all to hear. I haven’t figured out how to get music on blog spot yet. If any of you know please be kind and pass that knowledge along.
Thank you to the ones, especially Lady Jude, who gave me tips on how to make my blah wordpress recipe blog look better. I really appreciate all of you and I think we will get through this blog moving stuff and end up with our blog family still strong. I do like my blog spot a LOT better than the wordpress ones though.
OK time to go as I see my daughter coming to the door.
Have a good week and above all be happy.
