Good morning. My goodness, it is almost noon. I was up early this morning, took my meds, fed Pogo and prepared the peppers for cooking later. Then, for some reason, I was so tired that I went back to bed for a few more winks.
The package of peppers is called "Stoplight Peppers." One red pepper, one yellow and one green. This is good because some folks, like my DIL Janet, cannot eat the green peppers (they upset her stomach) but she can eat the red ones. I made sure to put all the seeds into marked baggies. I'll dry them out and maybe some of them can be planted next year. We'll see.
Last week the Marshfield Fair was here. I don't get to go anymore, too much walking for me. But the younger folks in the family get to go and have a wonderful time. If there's something fun out there to do, Randi is going to make sure the kids get to do it. She's an awesome mother. Here are some photos she sent us from the Fair last week.
In photo #1, Jazzy has a big teddy bear. Photo #2, Jazzy, Lilah and Jack ride the swings. In Photo #3, Alima has a big spotted dog. Photo #4 is Lilah, Alima, Jazzy and Randi. And in Photo #5 we have Jack, Lilah, Jazzy and Alima. Ah, the joys of youth and childhood. And two generations, my grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Right up until his last few years, Michael and I would go to the Brockton Fair every year. And each year, we had our photo taken at a little booth called "Photos By Scotty." For a while, we had them hanging all through the house. You could walk around and see us age (gracefully). After a while, we narrowed them down to just two or three photos hanging on the walls. The rest were put away.
Oh dear, today there have been several ads on TV for Olive Garden Restaurant, and they keep showing Fettuccini Alfredo, Lasagna and Spaghetti. Groan, groan, groan, don't they know how much I love these foods? I can figure out a lasagna and spaghetti sauce that I can have, but I'll have to really work on the Alfredo sauce thing. That's going to be a bit more tricky.
I'll be a bit late with my blog reading today. Deanne will be here in a little while, and I want to spend time with her before she has to go to work. Just before her car gets to the front of our driveway, Pogo will be over by the storm door, dancing and barking with delight to greet her.
I'm off now to go through all my mail, mostly junk mail. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
