Tonight I am sitting on my porch listening to an extremely LOUD thunderstorm. Goodness the thunder is just rocking our world over here. But I love that I can actually sit outside during a storm with the rain all around me and yet I'm safe and dry!
I am, however, considering calling up the Dog Whisperer to come talk some sense into Rocky. He has been freaking out for about an hour now!!
A few updates...the laziness has continued over the past few days. I wish I could work a little, then be lazy a little, then work a little more, then be lazy a little more. Unfortunately, once school starts I won't get to be lazy again for a very long time. :(
Also, still no word on Ashley's job. Today she said she was going to do "teacher-y" things in hopes of getting some positive vibes her way. She said she was going to buy some newly sharpened pencils and eat an apple and take my niece Bailey on a field trip. Haha!
She did take Bailey to Discovery Place, but unfortunately, it didn't change anything. :(
And, I have been connecting with SO many friends on facebook that I seriously haven't talked to since I was about 8 years old. I lived in Nashville, Tennessee at the time and went to Two Rivers Baptist Church and just this week, I have had about six people "friend me" who I knew back then! How fun is that???! I just love re-connecting with friends from my childhood. It reminds me of the sweet friends God has blessed me with through the years...some I haven't even thought about in forever! But when I see their name and friendship request, I get so excited to catch up with them! I have LOVED being on facebook!!
I watched the Bachelorette last night at my neighbor's house. I haven't really watched it much this season, but I've watched it enough to know I wasn't pulling for Ed! No thank you. I hope she is happy with her choice!
Ashley's boyfriend's mom sent me some homegrown tomatoes from her garden this week and they have been soooo good. I have made BLT's with them for the past two days! I used turkey bacon this time and it was every bit as good and not as greasy as regular bacon! I would highly recommend it.
Tonight I fixed oven fried chicken and mashed potatoes and lots of veggies. I also made one of our favorites...broccoli cornbread.
I had this for the first time when we were visiting Steve's family down in Mississippi and loved it. It is in his family cookbook now, so that's where I got the recipe. I thought I would share it with you!
10 oz. chopped broccoli, cooked and drained
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick margarine
6 oz. sour cream
1 box Jiffy cornbread mix
Mix all ingredients together. Pour into a buttered 9x13 Pyrex dish or iron skillet. Cook at 400 until lightly brown. Serve hot.
I hope you are having a good week! :)
