Yesterday my youngest daughter picked me up and we took Andrew to the park.
Then we went to lunch. Her birthday lunch. She’s 38. And she’s my baby.
I had a little stack of magazines for her, and she had books for me. You can see them below. We always trade books.
I finished a book on my Kindle last night. So I will start one of these tonight. Hm. Which one?
I got a year’s subscription to four magazines through Discountmags.com for right at $20 total. If you subscribe to their updates, you will get daily specials.
I ordered Family Circle, Woman’s Day, Better Homes & Gardens, and Midwest Living.
She brought me home and later in the afternoon I cooked a meatloaf in my Breville oven. I’d never done that. But it was delicious!
A couple of eggs, some milk, ketchup, bread crumbs. And I had a packet of meatloaf seasoning.
Moist, tender, and yummy! That and a glassed of iced tea really hit the spot.
I think tonight I will make a pan of cornbread. Also in the Breville oven. I love cornbread. Rarely a week goes by that I don’t make cornbread.
Last week I made taco soup in the crock pot and cooked cornbread.
I don’t know about you, but I was raised on beans and cornbread. Fried potatoes. Sliced tomatoes and onions from the garden. Okra.
I didn’t know what canned food was until I was in high school I don’t think.
I’ll eat meatloaf leftovers for a few days and then I’ll freeze individual meals for later. I love to make my own “frozen dinners.”
I froze at least half a dozen baggies of taco soup in my small freezer last week.
Thanks for all the suggestions for the mice problem in the comments. You readers are a great source of information.
I finished The Woman In Cabin 10. I thought it was actually better than Girl On A Train.
I love books that keep me guessing all the way to the end. And I must say The Woman In Cabin 10 was a consummate thriller from beginning to end. Girl On A Train was a close runner-up.
Would you rather watch TV or read? I’d much rather read.
There’s nothing quite like silence, but for the steady snuffling of sleeping dogs. A good book and flannel sheets to snuggle into. The good life.
City sounds surround me, so I turn on my sound machine, which is always tuned to rain.
I love rain just about as much as a good book to read.
What book are you reading? If you find a book not quite up to your standards, do you plow through till the end? Or do you start something else?
I just can’t bring myself to read all the way through a book that I find boring.
