Saturday morning

I'm getting ready to go to the market, and I thought I would start the blog first.  I'll begin with a couple of photos - the first one is a recent sunset and I thought the colors were exquisite.  The second is my cup of coffee this morning.  I use cream in it, then top with whipped cream (0 carbs, 0 sugar), cinnamon and nutmeg.  I can't tell you how delicious it is!

I'm back from the quick trip to the Market.  It didn't take me long to spend $20, but I have more than enough vegetables to last me a week, plus my grandkids will be glad to know I  bought a big bag of tree-ripened California navel oranges.  Can't wait to try one myself.

It's another cool, beautiful morning here, with sunlight so bright it's sometimes difficult to see even with sunglasses.   I think we will get close to 85 today, and then I will be happy to have temps in the 60's and 70's for at least 2 weeks.  I think the extremely hot weather is over with for this year, but you never know.  I wish we could get some of the rain that is flooding Texas.

I'd like to start a jigsaw puzzle, but once I start it I'll have to leave it up til I'm finished (1000 pieces).  It's no longer easy to do by myself because I'm limited to the time of day the light is just right.

I hope everyone has a good weekend, and if you enjoy Hallowe'en then have a good time.  I never did get into it - when I was a kid I don't remember it being a big deal.  I guess everyone was too poor to buy elaborate costumes and give out candy.  I do recall some women baking cookies and other sweets, and they were safe to eat back then.


  1. Hallowe'en was fun when I was a kid. Most of us could only afford a mask. Our bag was a paper grocery sack we decorated ourselves. One neighbor had us line up for group photos as we wonder the neighborhood and then later passed out a copy to the parents as a Christmas greeting card.

    We had to know where we got any homemade treats or pieces of fruits which was easy because it was usually the same families each year. The other was we were not allowed to eat anything until Mom-n-Dad had went through it to make sure everything was safe to eat. Yup, there were jerks even back in the late 50s and early 60s.

  2. We didn't have much of a Halloween either back in the '50's. We lived in the country along a very busy highway and if we got any, they had to drive there. Wasn't safe to be in costumes and walk along that road at night.

  3. Don't know if this will send having issures with google and can't remember my pass word or maybe they don't remember

  4. Coffee looks nice, but I am a straight black coffee person myself:)

  5. No sugar in the whipped cream? Are you sure? We never whip cream without adding sugar. We never had any trick or treaters at the farm since our drive was 3/4 of a mile. We did take Carrie into Charlottesville so she could Trick or Treat with her little friends.

  6. I am not a coffee person but that cup looks delicious!!

    I loved trick or treating as a kid. My dad would take me and some neighbor kids to the wealthy Austin, Texas neighborhoods as well as to the Governor's mansion. I believe the governor was Preston Smith and always wore poke a dot ties. He looked so short next to his tall butler who held the candy tray.
