Getting’ Twiggy Wit It…

(Click on the music…it will all make sense eventually!)


You really don’t want to be in my head!  My mind is like a steel trap and believe me, you don’t want to get trapped in there!


Okay…on to what I really want to show you!  I’ve been “Getting twiggy with it”!  Bwahaha…get it? “Getting’ Jiggy Wit It?”  The song?  Never mind…

…I love stars and needed some to decorate with, so…field trip!  Really!  I went out to the field and picked up some sticks, added some glue and string and…Viola!

                                                   STARS!  STARS!  STARS!  STARS!  STARS!  STARS! 







Actually they look better in person!  So come on over…see for yourself!

Mama got a new tractor!

That’s right!  Y’all don’t be jealous!  My man got me a new…bigger…tractor!


Got a hay spear coming!  (My little tractor couldn’t handle a roll of hay.  That’s why I got a new one!)

Can you say “Redneck?”



Turkey and ham and dressing…Oh My!


Countdown to Thanksgiving!

But guess what?  ‘Bama Girl, Fiance’, and MFR (My Favorite Roomie!)  won’t be here…no, they won’t!  Neither will William! 

It’s just going to be the six of us…Me, David, Donna and Woody, Mr. Turkey and Mr. Ham!

I’m smoking a turkey, cooking a ham, dressing and gravy, rolls, deviled eggs, a pumpkin cheesecake and a plain cheesecake.

Donna is making chicken and dumplings, sweet potato casserole, broccoli salad and a peanut butter pie!

For four…4!…people!

I’m also making a green bean casserole and deviled eggs for the in-law dinner!  And a birthday cake!

David and I will be going to his Mother’s  for lunch on Thursday.  Then, we’ll come back to our house to eat dinner with Donna and Woody.

Friday, we’ll be going to Tuscaloosa to take the poor and pitiful (i.e.:   “… can’t cook ‘cause we have no money!”), over-worked  (i.e.:  “…exams next week!”)  law students!  Gotta love ‘em!

And then zoom back here for dinner with William!

Saturday?  Iron Bowl!

It’s coming…dum da dum dum

I’m not ready…


…but I did make a wreath…for David’s mother. 

I’m not sure she was ready either!

New word:

Miscellania…Welcome to my world.  Full of miscellaneous items of interest and randomnous!

November…so much going on!  Birthdays, holidays…busy, busy, busy!

                               Happy Birthday!


We went to Rosie’s Cantina in Huntsville for Donna and Woody’s birthday dinner.  But first, we also went **SHOCKER!** to an antique shop!  We didn’t buy anything, but will be going back!

OMG!  Did you realize that Thanksgiving is next week?  I was thinking (gotta stop that!) I still had 2 weeks…but no! It’s next week.   I’ve got to get my act together!

BamaGirl will be home…!  She’s been working so hard and we haven’t seen her in a while.  Law school is hard!  And takes up all your time!  I think when she graduates, they should name a library for her…or at least put a name plaque on a chair for her!  Anyway…I’ve got lots of can berries (cranberries…story to come later…) ready for Thanksgiving dinner!  Hopefully Dain will be here, too!  He eats…EVERYTHING!  Which I love, ‘cause why else would I cook?  **Note to self:  Find out if Dain, roomies, or other people will be here.

Okay…here’s the story on Thanksgiving cranberries!  When BamaGirl was little (4 or 5 years old) she thought we were saying can-berries instead of cranberries…makes sense, right?  Cranberries…can-berries…berries in a can!  She did the same thing with clams.  She thought we were saying clowns!  Such a cutie!  She’d go into a restaurant and order fried clowns!   We thought it was hilarious, until she went on vacation with a friend and ordered fried clowns…!  Everyone was a little perplexed!  As I said…such a cutie!

                         BamaGirl and her first day to step on the campus of UA…


November is also her birthday.  It’s also mine and David’s anniversary.  It’s also 4 weeks until Christmas and my birthday!  OH MY!  I’m late…I’m late!

Gotta go get my busy on!

I’m Easy!

I’m easy to please and it only takes simple things to make me happy!

Donna and Wood (my sister and brother-in-law for those not in the know!) stopped by today and made me very happy!  I had mentioned that I really wanted something and they went out of their way to get it for me!  “Thanks y’all!)



See?  I told you I was easy!  I love it!
