Wednesday, Happy Valentines Day!

If you look closely Sluggy and I are in this photo somewhere....Happy Valentines Day!

I woke up to the doorbell ringing luckily Hub's was up to answer the door. It was a policeman needing uniform alterations.  Mom was up earlier than usual and I have her showered and dressed.  Lil sis is taking her out to dinner this evening so she is excited.  I am excited as Hub's and I can be alone for a couple of hours.  Hub's had a box of chocolates for each of us, and I will make him a nice dinner.  I also made a pan of my favorite  Valentine shortbread.  I need to go toast some almonds and melt some chocolate to dip it in.  I will take a couple of pieces over to the neighbors and check on them.

     Mom and I went out last night and went to two stores.  I spent a total of $2.11 so it was a big shopping run.   Came home and cooked fish, asparagus, and cauliflower for dinner.  Mom does not like asparagus or cooked cauliflower.  So she had a plate with raw cauliflower, ranch dressing for dipping and white fish.  This is a meal that would have scored an F on appearance in home ec.  All white on a white plate.

     I have enough sewing to get through the day, so that is a blessing. It is now 1/2 way through the month and money wise in the shop it has been slow, slow.  It looks like I will just meet my goals. Wouldn't it be nice if I could over do them a little? I am always pushing, I just want this debt gone!

     I want to run up and throw together another pan of short bread and get a few other things done today besides sewing.  Maybe the laundry, clean the cat box, do some ironing, polish the flippin silver.  You know all of those important things in life.  *snort*

 Actually I am going to practice my square dance moves, I don't want Sluggy to show me up.  (hint: she has on a red skirt)

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.



  1. And I do look lovely in my jet black dyed hair and frilly blouse!
    I actually did take square dancing for gym in high school once so get your allemandes ready girlie!!


      Life indeed is GRACE, I'am Daan Sophia currently in California USA. I would like to share my experience with you guys on how I got a loan of $185,000.00 USD to clear my bank draft and start up a new business. It all started when i lost my home and belongings due to the bank draft I took to offset some bills and some personal needs. I became so desperate and began to seek for funds at all means. Luckily for me I heard a colleague of mine talking about this company, I got interested although i was scared of being scammed, I was compelled by my situation and had no choice than to seek advise from my friend regarding this very company and was given their contact number, getting intouch with them really made me skeptical due to my past experience with online lenders, little did i know this very Company "PROGRESSIVE LOAN INC. was a godsent to me and my family and the entire Internet World, this company has been of great help to me and some of my colleague and today am a proud owner of well organized business and responsibilities are well handled all thanks to Josef Lewis of ( So if really you are genuinely in need of a loan either to expand or start up your own business or in any form of financial difficulty, i advise you give Mr Josef Lewis of Progressive loan the opportunity of financial upliftment in your life Email: OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565 and not fall victim of online scam in the name of getting a loan. thanks

  2. Well I got my ale modes ready with chocolate and bakery treats. I have the bright red badly dyed hair and those stylin white shoes.

  3. Nothing says Happy Valentine's Day like an all red square dance. I have been doing the whole 30 thing for 14 days now and would almost kill for a cookie of any kind, and you talk of cookies dipped in chocolate. My downfall! (Who am I kidding, I would almost kill for a piece of toast or a cracker)

    1. I have carb dieted most of my life, as I had to when I was dancing and had to weigh no more than 105, but they wanted me at 98. I have low carbed myself into 40 more lbs by eating too many treats but I always have to go back as I will not buy new clothes. I also hate it. Try those high protein shakes, that are chocolate they will really help the cravings, at least they work for me. I am beginning to hate eggs, and meat, salad hurts my stomach, just too many years of starving myself.

  4. No fair, I see three red skirts! It sure looks like a lot of fun!

    1. I really would love to square dance but my husband refuses.
