Wow, What an Absence ~

There's so much that's happened and I've been busy trying to keep up with it. In fact, I rarely even pick up the laptop now that it's so easy to check email and Facebook from my phone. It would take too long to fill you in tonight, so let's just say we have moved! We are loving the area!! We are loving the house!!! BUT we have burned out for the time being on painting and trimming things out. Took February off to rest, enjoy exploring, and having family in. The Mardi Gras parade here was my first one (The hubs was sick) and I cannot wait until next year! Such fun and happiness in the air, although it had rained the day before. I took photos of the house before we moved any boxes and furniture in and have taken photos during the reno. It will take time but we are having fun doing it. Built in '94, it had not been updated since and an older couple had owned it so you can imagine the time era it was caught in. However, in retirement there's time to work, time to nap, time to eat, time to ride around down by the coast and smell the salty air and hear the seagulls. Never, ever thought we'd be here but it came down to where would it be easier for our daughters to visit. Our favorite spot will remain a favorite vacation spot, as well as Disney World now.

So have a great weekend, sorry there hasn't been much on here and remember, people who rain on your parade are jealous of your sun and tired of their shade {wink font}.

Happy Valentine's Day!

How Do I Love Thee?
 Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and heigth
           My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
            For the ends of Being an ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
           Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;          
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
           In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
           With my lost saints,
I love thee with the Breath, Smiles
Tears, of all my life! and, if God choose,
           I shall but love thee better after death.
~ Elizabeth Barret Browning
Never Have I Fallen
Your lips speak soft sweetness
Your touch a cool caress
I am lost in your magic
My heart beats within your chest
I think of you each morning
And dream of you each night
I think of your arms being around me
And cannot express my delight
Never have I fallen
But I am quickly on my way
You hold a heart in your hands
That has never before been given away
~ Rex A. Williams
Happy Valentine's Day!
Feel free to copy these vintage cards and
spread the happiness. Enjoy the day,
and sleep well tonight,
my sweet princess and adoring princes.
Happy Valentine's Day, I love you ~

Bread Roll Biscuit

Not sure how this will work, but I found this on Pinterest. They are called Bread Biscuit Rolls and they look yummy! I'm going to go ahead and write the recipe here in case you can't connect to the page!


2 cups Bisquick mix

1/2 cup of sour cream

1/2 cup of 7Up soda

1/4 cup butter

Directions ~
1 - Cut sour cream into your Bisquick mix.

2 - Add 7up - it will make a soft dough.

3 - Sprinkle counter with a little Bisquick mix, place dough on top and pat it out.

4 - Melt butter and pour it into a 9" square baking pan.

5 - Cut your biscuits and arrange in pan. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

One of the ladies that pinned it made two batches and noted that her family finished them up far too quickly. I'm sure when I make these for the family I'll use more than just a 9" pan, that's for sure! If you make these, let me know how yours turn out!!
