Breakfast Fit For A King!

July 24, 2012

Good morning.  Have you noticed how quietly, and quickly, July has been slipping by on us?  It's time to start thinking seriously about gift shopping for the upcoming holidays.  Believe me, while you're enjoying August and getting the kids back to school, December will pop right up. 

I've been tucking things away for a while now in my giftee draw.  Plus a few bags set near by.  I like to have all the small stuff done early, leaving me just the bigger items to tend to as the holidays grow closer.   It works for me.

On my way home from work Sunday morning, I stopped by a dairy farm that I pass to get a few photos.  These are some of the gorgeous critters that were grazing in the pasture.

The second photo was my last shot.  This critter was starting to look at me a bit weird, so I thought it best not to upset him and went on my way. 

I'm watching a paid infomercial program about the "Tummy Tuck" belt.  Wow!  You put the belt on, and in just ten minutes, it whips all that belly fat into shape.  Voila!  Slim belly!  Amazing, how some elasticized material can get rid of 40 pounds of unsightly fat bulges.  Hmmmm, food for thought!

During the night, the noise from the thunder and lightning woke me up and after that, sleep was not forth coming.  So around 5 a.m. I decided to get up and make some breakfast.  I cut up potatoes that I cooked yesterday, and browned them in the frying pan.  Then I scramble two eggs and pour them over the browned potatoes.  Add some black pepper and mix well. Add three or four slices of bacon, and a slice of toast to your plate, and top it off with a cup of coffee.  Breakfast fit for a king.  (or Queen)  Mmmmm!

I had my appointment with the doctor yesterday.  A lot of the poison is gone, but there's still a ways to go before it's all gone.  80 percent of the itch is gone too.  Spider bites are just plain nasty! 

Today is supposed to be hot and muggy, so I think I'll just cool the house down a bit, and maybe catch up on some cleaning.  Not my favorite thing to do.   However, the dust bunnies are beginning to annoy me so it's time to clear some of them out. 

First on my list for this morning is to finish my order for the next blog book.  I ran into a problem while placing my order, so I need to speak with customer service and get some help.  That's it for the news today.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

My Goodness Edna, I didn't realize I had missed so many of your posts. This morning I read them all and got caught up. Your breakfast for a Queen sounded so good, but if I ate a tenth of that they would have to role me out of bed every morning. But, I can see an occasional splurg ... yummm...

As for your last Friday Photo Art Picture, it is beautiful. I love how you have combined things. I assume you do that by layering, something which I haven't really learned to do yet. Jasmine is gorgeous so you have it make with her in there from the start. Love your artwork :) Your little critters are adorable too. I hear you when you say it breaks your heart for so many to be needing homes. I would have a hard time choosing not because I couldn't find a pet I wanted but because I wouldn't be able to walk away from the others. But, when you find your new friend, you will know. Good luck in your search.
I think you should look at the other meme's, especially Mandarin Orange Monday if your favorite color is orange. It is perfect for you. It will be interesting to see how much orange we can dig up over time ... hmmmm. Sounds like you are doing well ... Hope the rest of your week is enjoyable. I am with you when it comes to how many dust bunnies I can tolerate ... I think I have to be tripping over them, then I know it is time:) Be well Edna ...

Okay, now my cheerios seem really boring and I may have to fry up something better.

Nice livestock. I adore cattle, not sure why, but I have a soft spot in my heart for them.

My breakfast this morning was McOatmeal on the way home from Dayton. McDonald’s Fruit and Maple Oatmeal is just incredible! My normal breakfast is cereal, fruit and yogurt. At least 6 days out of the week I crave sweet breakfast, but when I do want something savory in the morning, I want the potatoes and bacon and the whole bit!

My brain is starting to organize for Christmas too, but just my brain right now, not the rest of me yet.

Gorgeous cows! I think that last one isn’t so much looking at you weird, but maybe it’s how cows smile! :D

Have a fabulous evening!

Hugs, Nani

Your breakfas sounds good! Now I am not the type that is doing breakfast, (only on holiday, then I love to have breakfast, quiet and all), but it can serve as well for lunch or even a quick dinner in the weekend!
That belt that says it will take care of some belly fat, don;t buy it.! Usually those things that promise wonders don't do it.! Best is to continue your excersises as soon you can again after the sopider thing is gone.
Have a great day(here too some dust etc, is starting to annoy me, so work for me too)
