This is my banter for Friday October 4th…

Hello all you savvy people out there:: Thanksgiving is getting closer with each day.. The stores don’t seem to have the deals on turkey’s they used to.. Like everything else they are getting really expensive like all things we need to keep us alive.. I feel sorry for all the families that find it hard to feed their families.. The food banks will be hard at work making food hampers for the less fortunate.. If you can spare some money or even some food items.. Please drop them off at the food banks near you and make a hungry child’s Thanksgiving a happy one.. You enjoy your Thanksgivings as I will do the same.. Take care and be safe.. Till later.. Remember others who need help on this holiday… 🙂 🙂

This is my banter for Thursday October 3rd…

Hello all you beautiful people:: I trust everything is well with you and your family.. We are all as snug as a bug in a rug.. My day has been pretty laid back.. I cooked up a storm today.. I had home made from scratch chili and spaghetti sauce simmering on the stove.. The house was filled with the comforting smell of food.. When the hubby woke from his sleep he was drawn downstairs by the aroma… As soon as the grandson entered the house after work the smell made him instantly hungry.. I had garlic toast with cheese set up and ready to cook under the broiler.. For dinner I gave the guys a choice of one or the other… They chose both.. The sauce and chili was a big hit.. I did it again.. Well, I’m blowing this popcorn stand.. Take care and be safe.. Till later… Stand up for what you believe in… 🙂 🙂

This is my banter for Wednesday October 2nd…

Howdy there:: As I write the rain is pouring down just as it did last night.. I was not able to write a post for Tuesday as the thunder storm shut off the lights at one point, and killed the internet connections.. I was captured by forces I could not control, so I went to bed early.. Can’t do much in the dark, well I guess you can but I will not go there.. We finally got our kitchen light fixed, as for the past two or three weeks we have been cooking and doing dishes by lamp light.. And we have been using the ones on the hood over the stove.. The kitchen seems to be so bright now.. I told the repair man he could take it back, only because I could now see the parts I missed during cleaning.. He got a bit of a chuckle out of that.. Now the bathroom lights don’t flicker like they did before he came.. It was hard putting on make up as the lights flickered on and off.. LOL!!! Well it’s time to run.. Take care and be safe.. Till later… Live life to the fullest… 🙂 🙂

Treading water…

This is my banter for Friday September 27th…

Hello all you wonderful peoples:: I hope everyone had a great Thursday and you are all home safe and sound.. My day was wet as the rain fell not once but several times.. At one point there were thunderstorms with hail.. “Ya, I thought Hail??” I sure did not see any in my part of town, but I did hear the thunder roaring above.. With all the degeneration of our planet, the weather is beginning to not know what to do next.. I think Mother Nature is running on a wing and a prayer.. Very unpredictable.. I would hate to see what happens when the polar caps melt away.. I read an article about Iceland, and how the ice is melting there…. It is now causing a run off that in the future will raise sea level three inches.. That may not seen to be much, but it will make a big difference.. All this melting has been caused by the sweltering heat in Europe this summer.. I don’t know about you but this is not good for any of us.. I hope some how the planet will revert back to what it was long ago..  Well, I’m on my way.. Take care and be safe.. Till Monday.. Be kind to others.. 🙂 🙂

Rain drops…

This is my banter for Wednesday September 25th…

Howdy all you smiling people:: How has your day been?? Mine has been cool and miserable.. The rain drops fell most of the day again.. Pretty soon I will see the plants hiking up their roots just to stay out of the water.. But, the grass is very green and not brown.. I dressed warmly as I was freezing cold.. If I catch a chill it takes sometime to get rid of it.. Once I find my way to bed, I will be warm and cozy.. Snug as a bug in a rug.. Thinking of that.. I do have to go as I have a few things I need to do before heading to that warm cozy place.. I wish you all a safe Wednesday and good fortune.. Till later.. Enjoy life… 🙂 🙂

This is my banter for Tuesday September 24th…

Hello everyone:: How’s your day been?? I trust your Monday went by quickly and without any problems.. Mine was good, and uneventful.. Got somethings done around the house, then made dinner for the fellas.. Our grandson has been living here for a few months.. He has decided to go back to the place he was before he came here.. I’m going to miss him, and I pray all things will work out for him.. We love him and wish him the best.. We let him know that no matter what we will be here if he needs to come back.. He’s a man and knows his mind… Our children and grand children need to know we love them… Well I need to run.. Take care and be safe on the roads.. Till later.. Share a smile and see how many return it.. 🙂 🙂

gran driving red  lips (2).jpgMAGS.. Have a great Tuesday… 🙂 🙂

Home again…

This is my banter for Tuesday September 17th..

Hello everyone:: How have you all been doing?? I trust all is well and good with everyone.. I hope the weather has been great where ever you may live.. It looks like fall is closing in on us.. I like fall and not because it is cooler, but because of the colors mother nature displays for all of us to enjoy.. It will be time soon to remove the gazebo and the yard ornaments… Time to find places to store them for the winter months.. I know that’s sounds depressing, and it is.. It’s coming and we can be in denial, but it will be here before we know it.. Yuck.. We got the notice from our plow guy and that is a sure sign the white crap is coming.. No shoveling the drive for us older folks.. Well, I’m on the run and gotta go.. Take care of those you love, and be safe… Till later.. Have a good day.. 🙂 🙂

This is my banter for Wednesday September 4th…

Hello all you wonderful people:: I trust your Tuesday was uneventful, and safe.. I have had a good day.. Dried laundry that I had washed the night before.. I took the liberty of cooking a roast chicken dinner, with stuffing, and the works.. It was a nice change from the usual eats we have eaten.. The dinner was later than most dinners.. But the wait was well worth it.. The potatoes had a savory hint of sage and rosemary.. As I write this I can taste the dinner again.. I love to cook meals that bring us all together.. Meals that fill the emptiness within.. For from my table all bellies are full.. Well, it’s time I go out of here.. Have a great day tomorrow, and be safe… Till later.. Speak only the truth.. 🙂 🙂

This is my banter for Wednesday August 28th…

Hello all you fine people:: How’s it been going?? How was your Tuesday?? Mine, well it was wet.. The weatherman sure was right when he said rain.. It rained over night, today, and there is expected to be rain again tonight.. How much fun can one person have?? Wet kind of fun I don’t like so much.. Because of the rain it has become hot and muggy again.. ‘Come on I liked the weather the way it was before..’ I hope the muggy goes away by tomorrow.. This whole week is supposed to be filled with rain showers.. By, Saturday the weather is supposed to turn nice again, just a little more like fall weather.. I’m okay with that.. I can put on warmer clothing.. ‘No problem..’ Well, I got to go.. Take care of yours, and be safe.. Till later… Watch out for Pigeons… 🙂 🙂

Weather change…

This is my banter for Tuesday August 27th…

Hello everyone:: How’s your day been?? I hope the day has been pretty good to you and yours.. My day has been busy with cleaning, cooking, and laundry.. All the fun things I look forward to each day.. ‘Are you kidding me.’ I never look forward to chores like that on any given day..  I just thought it sounded pretty positive.. It’s been beautiful outside, and the wind has been blowing cool all day.. It is going to be a good night for sleeping, if I ever get there.. The laundry is finally done.. ‘Thank goodness.’  Tuesday was supposed to be a carbon copy of Monday, as was the rest of the week.. But, the weather man through a curve at everyone of us.. Now we are looking at rain, and more rain.. Pretty well rain for the rest of this week.. I had so many things to do outside but, now that’s all been filed under ‘G’ for garbage.. Now I have to figure out what to do Tuesday.. I’m sure I can find something rewarding to do.. Well, I’m off to bed shortly.. You all take care, and be safe out there… Till later.. Keep your head above water… 🙂 🙂

gran driving red  lips (2).jpgMAGS…   Thanks for being the great person you are… 🙂 🙂
