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… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

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..Β  Well, I’m on my way.. Take care and be safe.. Till Monday.. Be kind to others.. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Hello everyone out there on this planet called Earth::Β  I trust everyone is healthy and happy.. I hope you enjoyed your Wednesday as I did.. I got a chance to venture outside and enjoy the sun shine, and cool breezes.. I harvested a few seeds and set them aside to dry.. I will later place the seeds in containers for the winter.. About the middle of May I will plant them in small containers so they can get a head start on the planting season.. I know I’m a bit ahead of myself.. But, why wait till the last minute.. For now I get enjoy the flowers that are blooming in the garden.. Enjoy the blooms out and about… Their color will only be here for a bit longer.. Well, I’m heading out into the traffic.. Take care and be safe.. Till later… Keep your eyes on the road..Β  πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my banter for Thursday August 29th…

Hello everyone out there in the world:: Today I found myself deciding what I should do today..(Wednesday)Β  The devil one my right shoulder didn’t want to relax and do nothing.. She wanted to go out and paint the fence red.. Not a bad idea.. The angel on my left shoulder was all for relaxing for the day.. She wanted us to drink tea and feast on glazed donuts, and read about princes and fairy tails.. ‘ How boring is that idea.’Β  ‘Every bite of a glazed donut would work it’s way straight to my butt.’ ‘No thanks.’Β  I’m trying to shift a pound or two away from my body.. I thought hard and long… Finally I flicked the angel off my left shoulder, and did what I wanted with the devil riding high on my right shoulder.. I relaxed and did very little for the whole day.. ‘I love days like this.’Β  Well people this lady has got to go and arm wrestle with the devil.. You take care, and be safe on the roads.. Till later… Don’t run from a bear… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my banter for Tuesday August 20th..

Hello everyone:: Monday has gone, and we are into Tuesday. Before we know it the weekend will be upon us.. I hope your Monday was prosperous, and a blast for anyone you came in tough with.. My Monday was quite enjoyable even if it rained the majority of the night.. I love how even the brown grass turns to green.. There are a lot of brown lawns out there, and I see them when ever I’m out.. The day started out warm then got cool enough too sit outside, and watch the world go by.. The best way to spend your time.. I find there are so many people who peak our interest.. The differences between people is not limited to size and hieght.. Just sit in the mall and you will see what I mean.. You may be looked at by a watcher like I am.. Well, This gals got to run.. You take care, and be safe.. Till later.. Never stand in the shadows of others.. Stand tall on your own… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my banter for August 8th.

Hello everyone.. Today was my chance to get away from home and go visit. I wanted to see my grand-baby Parker and his mom. Today he was three months old, and he has grown like a weed. My how time flies.. It’s nice to get away for a few hours. I don’t do that as much as I should. But I’m doing my best. Grant you, during the winter I will likely not be out as much.. I can drive the roads with no problems. After all I’m an old trucker.. When I did that job, I loved the traveling to different place in the USA. I even got to see the ocean for my first time. It’s beautiful. If you’ve have never seen it before, make the trip it is worth it. I met a lot of nice people and some pretty nasty ones. I want to travel, and live in a motor home for a couple years. But that seems to be nothing more than a dream.. Well I must go.. You take care… and I’ll see ya tomorrow… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is the next part to my story for Wednesday July 24th.

Hello all you wonderful people out there: Tuesday has passed us by and Wednesday is here. Today will be our inspection day for Fire Safety. Clean out the dryer vents each time you do a load of laundry. Clean and vacuum out your bathroom vent on the ceiling. Put a new furnace filter in the furnace. Check all smoke detectors, and the carbon dioxide detector. All batteries are to be replaced with new ones. This is done twice a year. So now you know what is going to happen in this house today. It’s pretty quick, and makes you feel much safer. If you don’t get inspected, just follow the directions I have written and you will feel safer too… Till later… Keep smiling.. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my next part of my story for July 22nd.

Hello all you wonderful peoples. How was your weekend, and your Friday? Ours was very hot, and when I walked out the patio doors it was like I’d run into a wall. I found my self feeling like I was having a hard time breathing. Like that elephant you see sitting on the guys chest in the commercial about POCD. I didn’t spend much time out there. Just spent my time inside cleaning up for company on Saturday. That day was one of the hot days too. I cooked on the barbeque so the house did not get hot. Going out made me sweat like crazy. But the dinner turned out really good. I made beer can chicken and pork tenderloin. They turned out just right. Strawberries, and whip cream to end off the dinner. I love cooking for others. It’s my thing… Well, this gals gotta get moving… Take care of yourselves and be safe…. Till later… Keep cool… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my new edition to my story for July 16th.

Hello everyone out there. I hope your Monday was a good and safe day for you and your family. My day was really nice. I blew up a small pillow, and instantly got a migraine.Β  I have never had that happen before. I have a way to get rid of most of the pain and the partial blindness I experience. The pain I have left is like a dull ache that I am willing to live with. As long as I don’t bend over, the head fells okay. I usually end up with the ‘don’t bend over,’ pain for two days. It’s better than not being able to see right. For our Anniversary we went to Red Lobster. The biscuits they serve are so tasty that they make it hard to finish your main course. Then we had crab stuffed mushrooms. To die for, and oh so savory. I hadΒ  garlic shrimp and a salad. I ordered breaded shrimp, but the batter was icky. So, I peeled off the batter and ate the shrimps. All in all, it was a fantastic day… Take care of those you love, and be safe… Till tomorrow… Keep smiling… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This is my next edition to my story for July 11th…

Hello everyone. Wednesday was really hot here in my corner of the world. I hope that all of you had somewhere safe, and out of the heat to hide out in. I stayed inside most of the day, and as the sun was going down I ventured outside to sit. I hope those that work in factories, plants, or whatever you may call them. I hope they have ample air conditioning. The work and safety board, I believe has set a temperature that is the max it has to be set at in most places. The temperature they have chosen for factories is way too low to help beat the heat. Sure there are fans used to blow the hot air around, which I believe that is futile.. My son works in a place that only has air conditioning in the lunchroom. WOW!! He said where he works it was 42 degrees Celsius. That should be against the law.. The company should be fine by the law for not providing a safe temperature to work in… I recall a man that died in a bakery a few years back and the temperature there was 44 degrees Celsius. He Died in that heat.. I hope all of you are keeping cool and drinking lots of water.. If you feel dizzy, or faint get help right away… Till tomorrow… Be safe… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
