Jamie Oliver - Videos - Home-made pizza, Jamie's pizza podcast, Part 3
Here's the new book I'm reading this week and I highly recommend it. Especially if you love British mysteries. It has everything in it, from the vicar in the village to the quirky characters who live there. Delightful, full of dry humor, a really good murder mystery.

Tomorrow is thrift shopping, maybe all day. As long as hubby can stand it, anyway! I'm thinking of opening a booth here in town at our favorite thrift shop. I need to part with some of my goodies. And it would be fun to set it up, and I don't even have to be there to run it, I can still work my day job! Will see.

I found this camera in the barn the other day. It belonged to one of my uncles. He was the town photographer, took all the school pictures and pics for the newspaper. If this camera could talk! I'm sure he had a much larger camera for his school portraits, I think this may be an old brownie. I ordered a new camera this week, can't wait for it to get here.

Lake Jackson in Florala is calling my name. And the town is full of antique shops. Love to go there. Maybe even buy a Florida lottery ticket while I'm there. One day my ship will come in.

This is some artwork in a shop there, all made from driftwood. They had some beautiful pieces in this shop.

Real dogs....

and toy dogs, aren't they cute!

Pictures from this years family reunion.
October is already rushing in.  Soon we will smell wood fires from chimneys and fall leaves burning in piles. I love fall weather, it just doesn't last long enough in Alabama.

Sunny Skies after the Storm

I am looking forward to cold weather, we have had too many days of three digit heat in the South. But we will miss the summer veggies and herbs and flowers. Until next year! Roses will bloom again.

A few new pics. Check out my niece's Auburn Univ. toenails!

She's a big Auburn fan!

And some hot peppers in the garden!

What a stormy Wednesday!

Good morning, friends. I drove VERY slowly to work this morning, it was raining so hard! I love to read on a rainy day, and what better place than the library to spend the day! Our library is so cozy up here on the top floor, we even have a sitting area with a loveseat and chairs and lamps and fake fireplace, it looks like a cozy room in an old home. I love coming to work every day.

Good Monday Morning

I hope you had a nice week-end, mine started out very well. We enjoyed celebrating mom's birthday with her Saturday.

My beautiful niece, Ashley, made a delicious carrot cake and decorated it nicely, too.

Then we took mom to her favorite family diner, where she and her lady friends from the retirement center are regulars!

Sunday morning, I got up early and cooked breakfast and went to church. Our church is a little country church in the woods built by my grandfather and uncles. I'm kin to everyone there!

Sunday afternoon, my loving hubby decides we needed to work off lunch, so off I go down the dirt road on my trusty Huffy bicycle. BIG mistake! After several hours in the emergency room and several contusions and bruised ribs later, I decided that the sedentary life-style is for me. After all, reading is mental exercise, right?

Have a blessed week, everyone!
