If I were rich…







I would have fresh flowers all the time.100_5849

We received these from our Sunday School

class this past Sunday.

I took an unexpected trip

to the ER by ambulance on Thursday night.

Leon had a throat procedure on Friday.

Northing serious for either of us.



We are truly blessed as this could have been bad news.


I saw no sense in separating these flowers

into a yellow bunch and still another red bouquet…just put them together.

Used the red candles from Valentine decorations

in the yellow candle sticks

( a recent purchase from Goodwill. Left some of the rest of Valentine

items to complete the look.

February 14th


A day set aside to pay

extra attention to our loved ones

There does not have to be a lot of money spent.

Just show lots of kindness, sweetness, and love.


Happy Valentine’s Day

Take cold weather


comfort food



weight gain.


I enjoy cooking so wanted to show

you what I have been creating

in the Watkins kitchen.



Cherry Pie

Home made crust naturally.

Made this Sunday afternoon.


Then today Leon wanted Mexican cuisine  from the


Watkins La Casa house.




Fried beef burritos, Mexican rice and refried beans.

All created from scratch.

So spicy and tasty.




Had a couple of apples so decided to

make apple tarts. First I peeled and cored them,

added some cinnamon sugar to the center ,

spooned a bit of caramel topping to the center also.

Brought the crust up and around to completely

encase the apple. To show my love to my honey

I added three pie dough hearts to the top.

Served them with a tidge of ice cream and a bit

more caramel.




Spring time had better get here quickly

so the added calories can be worked off.


I love to cook – for those who love to eat!

Picky people make me nervous.

I goofed

Most times I post my decorating pictures on  this blog.


Brain not functioning properly – old age? Or too much snow?


Anyway, to see what I have been doing for Valentine decorations at the Watkins love nest, check out my other blog.
