Well, I decided to be lazy today.  I have the just don't want to do anything feeling.  With the hubby out of town I find it very easy as everything stays in place when it is just me.  a big LOL.
Do you remember when we user to have these
I remember my mother collecting them and looking at a gift catalog to see what she could buy with the stamps.  Once she got a set of pillows.  Oh the good ole days it was.
I think we will get more rain today and seems cooler this morning here in Tennessee.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Hello from Tennessee, a nice sunny day out today.  Thinking of going to wal-mart and do some looking around.  I don't need a thing but sometimes they get different items in and I like to get ideas on crafts.  Christmas isn't to long away so need to get busy. 
We had rain yesterday and was much needed as the corn is getting very dried out.  I fixed some fried corn and it was very good if I do say so myself.  Hubby really enjoyed it.
I would like to show you a picture of my family here in Tennessee

Baby Landyn is doing better but still a long way to go with his healing.  Another surgery comming up in about a week.  God will hold him in his arms that is for sure.
I wish you each a lovely and Bless day.

Well, just in case I haven't told you I really do get impressed with the Amish.  I found this on a Amish page I was looking at. 

Root Beer

1/2 cup warm water
2 cups granulated sugar
1 quart hot water
4 teaspoons root beer extract
Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water.

Mix together dissolved yeast, sugar and root beer extract in gallon jar.
Fill jar with warm water and stir until all ingredients are well combined
Seal Jar
Set in warm sun for 3 to 4 hours
Refrigerate 12-24 hours
Serve cold
I remember as a little girl my Mom making homemade rootbeer.  But, she bought rootbeer in a bottle then added water and yum it was really great. Can't find that anymore.


Yep, it's the jolly ole fat man.  This is what greets you at the door where I went to a flee market.  I do not know how you feel but flee markets, yard sales and garage sales are as high old as Wal-Marts new.  You have to really want it to buy these days.  More like a store now than a used place.  I did find this and loved it
This was all I found.

I wonder how many of you will get to have fire works this year?  It is so dry here in Tennessee that they have said No fireworks this year.  Oh goodness, we need rain.  My doggies are happy as they do not like the loud bang and will run and hide.  Really, neither do I.   I hope you have a good day with your friends and family, eat lots of burgers, hot dogs and fries and stay safe.

Andy Griffith Dies at 86

Oh how I remember as a wee thing watching this show, in fact I still watch it today.  By the way, every morning, I also watch Golden Girls and love it.  Now if they would show more movies like these what a better world this would be.  I do wish my children could have grown up like I did when we had NO tv or Telephone.  I was 16 before we got our first Tv.  Don,t remember the phone but do remember we were on a party line.  6 people shared the same number.  Oh the good ole days.

Today it is not as hot and rather windy.  Looking for some rain as everything is so dry out.  I hope you have a nice Evening and a Happy 4th of July tomorrow.  Be safe.
