Outside my window… a little sun is peeking through beautiful fluffy clouds.
I am thinking… it’s a good day to get some outside projects done.
I am thankful… for my family and their love.
In the kitchen… we have a few more new recipes still brewing for the January’s menu. I’ll post the successful ones on my food blog ALWAYS EAT ON THE GOOD CHINA.
I am wearing… my daily uniform LOL – 515 Levi’s, a cotton weave turtleneck and my favorite hikers.
I am still creating… some Christmas gifts for next year – quit laughing, these things take time. I’m also creating some new recipes for:
- Salad w/ Poppy Seed Tarragon Creme Fraiche dressing
- Baked Potatoes w/ Shallot Corn Butter
- Tangy Ranch Dressing
- Kentucky Hot Browns
- Parmesan Corn Muffins
- Beef & Barley Stew
- Cream of Tomato Soup w/ Rice
- Cream of Vegetable Soup
- Lemon Tuna Noodle Casserole
- Country Bistro Dinner
- Paprika Pot Roast
- Apricot & Tarragon Pork Chops
- Pork Chops w/ Roasted Apple & Onions
I am going… to spend the next few days scanning in ALL the VA documents and compose more letters to our congressman in hopes of clearing things up – yay, like that’s going to happen, but I have to follow procedure. For every step forward we seem to take 3 backwards!
I am wondering… just who to contact next regarding the VA mess.
I am reading…

I am hoping… things turn around soon
I am looking forward to… getting rid of some physical books now that I have the new kindle.
I am learning… how to be patient, but also how to squeak the wheel for oil!
Around the house… baseboards are getting painted and fine dusting is being done.
I am pondering… to live in the day and not worry about the future as much.
A favorite quote for today…
One of my favorite things… my morning coffee
A few plans for the rest of the week: Creating a few new recipes and getting into a new exercise routine to keep getting my energy back.
A peek into my day… laundry, research and blog catch up.
