It's Veronica!

Guess who's having a birthday tomorrow????

Do you know who this is????

We've been friends for more years than either of us care to remember and I talk about her all the time on these pages.

If you don't recognize her from these pictures, check back tomorrow, and I'll tell you who the birthday girl is.....

This is why I love T. J. Maxx...

I found these plates and bowls a couple of weeks ago, I got six plates, six bowls for $44, including tax. Is this a great deal or what???? The oversized square plates are wonderful, I'm going to take them for a spin this weekend when Ry and Linds come home.

I used to think sunflowers were summer, but that's not necessarily so, I see them used often in fall displays. Love that price!!!!

Yeah, yeah, I know it's a lot of stuff on the table and the sideboard groaning board, I'm a nester, remember? It's the bounty of fall, works for me..... *wink*

The brownies were a hit!

I made the black bean brownies, pureed the beans with my immersion blender, baked them in a 9x9 pan - they were thick, they were rich, they were..... GOOD!

I topped them with some sugar free cherry pie filling, a dab of Cool Whip, and YUMMO!!!!!!!!!

For you Weight Watcher types, they were 2 points for a small brownie... Amazing what you can substitute for fat, isn't it??? And no, you would never know there were beans in the brownies. They were totally undetectable. So don't turn up your nose 'til you try them. Gotta go outside your box, girlfriends...

I NEVER go to Hardee's

I hope none of you go there, either - just read what they've come out with, they should be stopped from doing this - talk about a walking heart attack -

Click here for article...

I'm making this for LC today....

Wonder how this will turn out? I'll let you know....

It's from the WW Message Boards, I've always wanted to try it, today's the day...

1 reduced brownie mix
1 can black beans rinsed well and drained
1 cup water
put water into blender with well rinsed and drained beans puree them till smooth.,add to dry brownie mix, mix well prepared as directions on box , bake according to directions. (no one will be the wiser that it has beans in it.) They are like a cake brownie.,

You gotta love Maxine, especially at MY age....

I, MAXINE , being of sound mind and body, do not wish to be kept alive indefinitely by artificial means. Under no circumstances should my fate be put in the hands of pinhead politicians who couldn't pass ninth-grade biology if their lives depended on it, or lawyers / doctors interested in simply running up the bills.

If a reasonable amount (24HOURS) of time passes and I fail to ask for at least one of the following:

Glass of wine
ice cream

Chicken fried steak
cream gravy
ice cream

Mexican food
ice cream
French fries
ice cream

ice cream
cup of tea
Ice cream
KFC Chicken

ice cream

It should be presumed that I won't ever get better. When such a
determination is reached, I hereby instruct my appointed person and
attending physicians to pull the plug, reel in the tubes, let the "fat
lady sing". . and call it a day!

I'll see ya`all on the other side.

Energizer bunny here...

It's now almost 11pm, Sunday evening, and I have added more to milly scraps. I still have about fifteen pages to add, but if you would like to take a look at what I've done so far, go for it. You can access it HERE at

Things don't always go as planned

I've spun my wheels a lot today, working on milly scraps, not as far along as I wanted to be, but hopefully tomorrow.

Tomorrow, tomorrow,
It's only a day, away...
