All's Quiet...

All is pretty quiet here on the home front. Haven't blogged in almost a Week! Bad girl! It's been a sad and happy week for us. My cousin Donna, who lives in Connecticut, passed away Tuesday after a nine month battle with cancer...I'm SO damn sick of death...She has a twin, Roni, who is just "out there" in limbo...I wish I were there...And we Still have the wedding to get ready for, even though things are pulling together nicely. Cake and flowers...etc...are done. Dresses, done...Church decorations, done...honeymoon plans, done...photographer Sarah, done.
I did a bit of laundry and cooking yesterday. Nothing much else. Crystal brought Will so he could spend the night. It was cartoons and giggles for the rest of the night...nice.
Well, guess I'll go find something else to wipe, clean, fix or throw out. Y'all have a Wonderful Sunday!

Oso Pretty in Pink!

This is Pink!
This is Sarah, in Nashville...
This is OsoBucco (sp)?? mah Tummy!!
Hubby said that's what the recipe said, and I believe him! Oso, pretty good...He's the cook and I don't question him too closely....he might up and quit!
It was a fairly quiet day around here yesterday. We ate, rested, hubby went to the grocery (which I can Not stand to do) while I met my buddy, Ellani at the bookstore. We watched a few Midsomer Murder mysteries and called it a day. Of course we had to watch Sarah deliver a speech at the Nashville, TN Teaparty Convention...Thanks goes to CSpan for the complete coverage..LOL..Can anyone say, "Don't Pi** off CSpan?"...Me thinks Obama said a wee bit too much on this subject...
And than this morning, Hubby says, "Look at Buddy!"...Well, Buddy is our unofficially adopted Wild Cat. I look out the kitchen window to see Buddy, Finally, using the PINK hut...LOL...Poor Buddy! He's ALL male, struts his stuff...has the girlfriends to prove his wooing abilities and ends pink. He now hates me...but he's warm.
Please try to have a happy Sunday, Gang...
