About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Make ya wanna slap ya Mama......

Fresh picked green beans, cornbread, potato salad, roasted corn on the cob, onion, and can't forget the glass of sweet tea!!!

Growing up we didn't have the traditional sandwich and chips. Especially after the garden started coming in. Mama would start our 'supper' right after breakfast. She said it was to keep the house cooler. Give the house time to cool off before the heat of the day set in. So our lunches looked a lot like this picture. Then for supper we would either warm up leftovers, or Daddy would come home after work and build a small bon fire and we would roast weiners and marshmallows and thats what we would eat. Yes, the green beans came out of our garden this year. Its our first batch and let me tell you, the whole time I was eating this meal I kept thinking back on all the fun carefree times we had as children and how good everything tasted fresh from the garden.
{Raising my iced tea glass} Here's to you Mama for showing me all the simple comforts of home.

Until later, gardeners everywhere......Gotta split......TFL!!!!!!
