Sunday, Dinner and Movie.

Photo: Pink on the left is from Hanalei, as is Green. Pink is mine, Green is Larry’s and they watch over the kitchen.

Yesterday, I made Sunday dinner.

It has been awhile since I have felt like doing it


hope that going forward I am more consistent.

Larry helped me cook and we had the best time.

I made a pascade….a French goodie. {and it was delish}

Our dinner plates were full, but with clean, proteins.

Larry made the faites maison frites……they were amazing. Home made fries.

I made steak with maitre’d  butter and we had the pascade with dinner.

Our wine was a pleasant surprise.

The Bunny Malbec. LOVED it.

For dessert, I made homemade shot glasses out of dark chocolate.

Filled with chocolate mousse…was lovely.

Our movie was To Catch a Thief. Oldie but goodie


it always inspires me to make a vintage garment. {I have something planned!}

I have something planned…but must find the “right” fabric from Mood Fabrics in NYC.

Have a great day… often.

Love you beyond shopping for fabrics on the Internet.


Instead Of A Frown

On Sunday, we had dinner and a movie.

I do not cook very much right now since I lost my appetite.

But, on Sunday I cooked…and we enjoyed the meal.

Pasta, with veggies, wheat bread and wine.

Our movie, was SUDDENLY.

We liked this old movie. It was very different from what we usually watch.

Today I read a blog that I like very much.

It was about change and how difficult  {and important} it is.

I wish that I wrote like that.

To write a blog about change, bravery

and accepting life with a smile instead of a frown.

Yes, well shoot me. I am grouchy today and  just cannot shake it.

Don’t you hate when that happens? A case of the grouchies….

Have a good day…..I hope you are smiling….

Love you.




Even Though I am Scottish

I LOVE St Patricks Day!

{Even though I am Scottish}

We had a perfect Patrick’s Day.

Our card from Matilda makes me smile each time I look at it

{I love  matilda so much,  my heart could burst}


on THE day, {St Pats day}

we had brunch in Wataga, Texas

then went to the Kimbell Museum to see the new exhibit.

Larry was happy and content.

Sunday, dinner and movie was a kind of bust.

I cooked even though I was not hungry.

We had beef Wellington, potatoes and a salad.

Our  movie was GIRLS TRIP.

I was a bit down and thought it would cheer me up.


I love the actresses in the movie,

but  GEEZE.

What a mess that movie is.

We watched about 30 min of the movie.


I have been struggling.

My medicine has lots of side affects

and frustration is setting

in with the basic eb and flow of what seems to be

what we know as diabetes.

In a few minuets, I will call Dr L’s office and make an appointment.

I WILL figure this out!

Love you.


Sunday, Dinner and Movie

It is a foggy Monday Morning.

I have been tired and sad.

Such is life, oui?

Yesterday, Larry took me to the Dallas Arboretum for an “airing”…..

It was perfection.

We came home and I made dinner.

Whole roasted chicken, rice, salad and cake for dessert

The movie for Sunday was PICNIC.

A 1955 classic.


I would like to thank the awesome people who

have donated to Komen Race For The Cure in my name.

I will be writing to you personally, but till then,

I send crushing hugs.

I am honored to be remembered  in such a way.

Love you,




Getting My Family Fix

It was a great weekend.

Larry and I asked our daughters

to join us for a Saturday FEAST!

{Larry and I were in France during Thanksgiving}

A 22 Pounder!

Jamison had to work, but stopped by

on her way home for a little visit,

But, Lars, Josh, Matilda and puppy Ellie joined us.

Let The FEAST Begin

I roasted a huge turkey,

used holiday table settings


smiled as the day was filled

with my wonderful family.

I cooked the dinner, Larry  carved the turkey


my kids were in charge of the entertainment.

It was  perfect.


Sunday night  was dinner and a movie,

we ate left overs and watched

the holiday movie Prancer.

PRANCER is my favorite.


And it always makes me cry.

So, it is now, Monday Morning.

Larry is away  all day today.

I am alone to work on holiday gifts, laundry

and practice my Yoga.

Will you  try to {yoga} breathe today?

Smile when you can and please remember

that this is the Holiday of LOVE and JOY.

No Grumpies allowed.

Love you very much.


My Wonderful Life

Good morning, cast of characters!

Yes, this is the group that greets me  each morning.

My worktable is a complete, wonderful, disaster

that I find inspiring and colorful.


Yesterday, Larry and I took a drive out to Farmersville, TX.

I spent an hour in the yarn shop,


touching, daydreaming, planning

and much to Larry’s happiness

finally checking out with with new yarns.


We came home for Sunday Dinner and Movie.

We grilled steaks on the grill, baked potatoes,

steamed green beans

for dessert I made an old fashioned  Lazy Daisy Cake.

It was good, a little to sweet,

WAIT! What am I saying? Never to sweet!

It was perfectly delicious.

During dinner, our movie was:

While We’re Young

We LOVED it.

It is relevant to what is happening today


Larry and I are still chuckling about some things in the movie.


This  is my last post for a few weeks.

{and I am closing down Face Book}

I wish you happy days and many smiles.

Love you beyond the moon.



Bueno Sunday

Yesterday was awesome.

Larry and I had Sunday LUNCH and a Movie,

because we were going to a Halloween gathering in the evening.

We had Taco Bueno Tacos for lunch,

and watched a movie,



It was smart and soulful…..

We ate our tacos, then I cuddled up next to Larry


watched the movie.


I had a dentist appointment this morning at 7:50

{and had to cancel}


I was very sick during the night.

I am feeling a little better better now,

but I will rest today..

Enjoy this beautiful day…..Love you.




What A Weekend

On Saturday, we watched Matilda play soccer


visited friends at the Gunter, Texas School carnival.


Then….Sunday was wonderful, happy and sad.

the sky looked like Autumn.


We went to the Dallas FT Worth Pug Rescue

Pug-O-Ween celebration.

{this is where we would bring LIbby each year in costume}

Lauren, Josh and Matilda  were there


so were Dima, Levi, Ayah and Salma.

We had fun watching all of the PUGS in costume.


Larry and I  came home, and enjoyed Sunday Dinner and Movie.

We had chicken tacos {recipe tomorrow} Salsa, and watched BEGUILED.

That CRAZY movie. I kept thinking that it was boring, then things heated up.


Then…. I had a reflexology appointment with Larry

and then off to bed.

I had started the weekend arguing with someone dear to me.

It weighed heavy on my heart the entire weekend.

Don’t you hate that?

Have a lovely day.

I love you beyond the beautiful autumn sky.




Days Of September

Yesterday was odd.

I worked on Christmas gifts,

Prayed for the victims of 9/11,

Reminisced about adopting Libby Pug Dog

the week after the Twin Tower disaster.

{16 years ago}

{Libby’s AKC name is 

Elizabeth’s Stormy Liberty}

I am tired of odd days….

I am looking forward to

halloween decorations,

the Texas State fair,

dinner at the fire pit


you know….

that happy feeling that comes in Autumn.

I shall be patient.


I forgot to post about Sunday dinner.

We had it on Saturday last weekend,

because Grandparents Day was on Sunday.

I made a chicken pot pie.

Awesome baking dish from Aggie!

It was delicious.


Off I go, in to Tuesday morning.

It is absolutely beautiful outside this morning.

I am inspired  and humbled.

Lionel Richie is singing – YOU ARE

Looks like it is going to be a great day.


Love you.


Sunday, Dinner and Movie

Can you hear me sigh?

Sunday, Dinner and Movie was spectacular.

We had stuffed eggplant, zucchini and a cheese plate.

Blindfold, white wine

and our movie was

My Old Lady.

I must admit, we started laughing

in the middle of the movie and could not stop.

{we kind of missed the end of the movie…}

Did you  know that My Larry

Peels off wine labels for his wine journal?

I LOVE his wine journals…

they are ART and moments wrapped all together.

Was your weekend spicy?

Happy Labor Day.

Love you.
