It's always a GOOD thing when you make your bed up! That means you do NOT have plans to return before night time. Not only did I make my bed up for the first time in 9 days.....I also got dressed in REAL clothes and fixed my face and hair!!
This morning I had company coming for tea!
It was Tea For Two with my good friend, Lynn!
I had the tea and she brought the sweets!
Let me tell you these peaches were DELICIOUS!!!!
A little butter, a little brown sugar, a little dash of rum.......
I have GOT to make some of these!!!
It was fun like a party and I enjoyed every single minute.
After Lynn left, I didn't even take a nap. NOPE! I did a little of this and a little of that and felt more like myself than I have in a long time.
Another Birthday Box arrived today!
This one is from my friend, Dawn, down in Florida.
I am ever so excited that I will be going to Florida this fall to meet my Jutta and visit with some of my Florida friends!
I sent this photo to Amber and told her I'm all ready for a Wine and Cheese Tasting Party!!
Would YOU like to join us?
My next activity was popping corn with the brand new air popper Louis Dean picked up on one of his rare visits to a thrift store with Ruth Ann and me back last spring.
It popped every single kernel!
I made a batch of Popcorn Crunch!!
I could eat that all day long!
So I boxed it all up in a big tin to keep it fresh for a popcorn and movie treat!
1 stick of butter
2 cups of sugar
2 Tablespoons of white corn syrup
2 Tablespoons of water
Boil all of this together and keep stirring and cooking until the mixture starts to pull away from the sides of the pan. It takes awhile.
Pour over the popped corn and stir to coat.
Dump onto wax paper lined cookie sheets and let cool.
Break into pieces and store in airtight container.
This is SERIOUSLY good!!
In other news, Louis Dean and I were watching the season finale of Suits when Cousin Joe came over. Louis Dean was a happy HAPPY man when he looked out there and saw his Big White Truck in the driveway!!!
Tonight LD made a fire for us and we sat out in the gazebo like old times.
It felt a little bit like we were camping what with the night sounds and the campfire smell!
I don't know what it is but I just seem to write better outside and before I knew it I had completed a chapter of my book.
And then - since I was already out here - I thought I would go ahead and do my journal entry for the day. It feels GOOD to feel good!
