Wise Words, Rooster Love and Food!

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities have crept in ; forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day and you will begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be
Encumbered with your old nonsense.

Wow!! I do believe I was to read this one today.
Seems like this can be me 3 or more days out of the week!
The blunders and absurdities part!!Ha!
I do know that this was my Mama’s attitude, that each day was a new day to begin again.
So I am giving it my best shot!
Got loads on my to do list for the year.
Hope to get some of it done.
I will reassess my list as the year goes on as I may decide to not do something or do it differently. Write nada in stone is my mantra!;-)

Did go out Sunday. SUPER COLD!!
Had a real good time with my niece and pal, Diana.
We did not really do much shopping just had a good time looking and visiting.
Did use my Joann’s coupons for thread and also bought a cute yd of Deb Mumm fab on sale.
Yummy lunch , we split an Italian Sub at a local restaurant .
Left there and went to a local thrift store.
I was surprised at how low on inventory they were. No real neat finds.
I did forget to look at wool skirts though..darn!

The Deb Mumm fab I bought will not surprise anyone who knows me well.
Look below. ;-)
Yes roosters! Ha! I do adore them. Well not every design out there but I will look!
I need some new things for the ‘cooking side’ of the kitchen so will do these up in pot holders and maybe trim a towel.
Speaking of the rooster/hen love thing…I did have to call a halt to my collections per say.
I love my peeps dearly but sadly they were just buying rooster/hens willy nilly and some were getting a tad out of hand… tacky I must say and God Awful Ugly in some cases.
So I let it be known I was NOT needing any more… ha!!
I myself will look but not buy. It has to REALLY BE SINGING to me. So far none in the last year.
I do have some wonderful ones I adore!!
By the way the other day when I did not know what I would have for supper I ended up doing a beef roast.
So I turned that into my version of a Shepherd’s Pie the next day.
I added some cream cheese and Italian Cheese blend tot he potatoes
So pretty!!!! Was yummy too!!!!
Yes that is a rooster cutting board! Ha!!!

So off to do some chores and get on with this day.
Abet a cold and gray one, reckon just another winters day!


  1. I understand the rooster hen thing! I just bought my first, a french country-ee blue and white for the center of my table. I'm in love! When my father passed, we found a folder full of old pictures from a poultry magazine, a different chicken each month. They are from the 30's and 40's, I want to mat and frame some for the wall. They'd be so pretty.
    Here's to spring, wherever it may be!

  2. I'm guessing the rest of the direct TV install went fine as it wasn't mentioned in this post. LOL I seem to have a penguin collection that needs to STOP, I totally understand what you are saying. Once folks know you collect something, they buy it for you no matter HOW it looks!!!

  3. Love the rooster thing too but also limit my collection now, just no more space!
    Enjoy reading your blog.


Luv hear'in from ya!!
