A Free Day!

I took a page from Diane's book of Crafty Passions( and took a day to relax.

Pop and I went out for breakfast at the little country restaurant in our small town. He ordered up fried Bologna with biscuits and gravy. One of his favorites. I had my usual, when I eat breakfast there, a veggie omelet. Yum! It is so good. They dice up lots of great tasting things to go inside. I'm not sure what all they do put in, but I know there are mushrooms,onions,green peppers,and maybe a few tomatoes, and I top it with a scoop of salsa.I think they throw in a little cheese, too. I'll bet they scramble up 3 large eggs. It is huge, and it is truly scrumptious.

Then we were off to Sears to spend a couple of long lost gift cards.We get them for Christmas, and put them up, and never remember where we put them.We finally found 2 or 3 of them and decided to use them today. I think Pop got tools. I slipped off to the other end of the mall to get a couple of pairs of new shoes.I just needed some nice, "in case I need to rush out during the week", shoes. Most of my everyday shoes look well used. I caught a sale, 'buy one get one at half price'.

Then we were off to look at Ford trucks. Pop has spoke of trading trucks for awhile, before his 2004 gets too many miles on it. He says one more new truck should last him out. I really don't think he needs another truck, since we have 4 now, but he thinks he does.I guess it could be worse. He could run out and get a new Mustang, and get us both killed in a bad wreck.He loves fast cars.

Our next stop was at the Tractor Supply Store. I don't know why they call it that. They have lots of different things, but not the one thing I wanted from there. Diatomaceous Earth. ( is the website where I did some reading about it, to mention one.It sounds like something I'd like to try. I read Lottie's blog from New Zealand, ( she was using it for various purposes, and peaked my interest once more.TSC didn't have it, but they suggested I try Lowe's, but we didn't make it that far.We only bought a really big tomato plant that was already blooming(hoping for some earlier tomatoes) and an inner tube and a tire for the boat trailer. Maybe we'll hit Lowe's another day.

Then back home to finish up the day. Pop watched a few cowboy shows with our neighbor/coffee drinking friend, while I watched my one SOAP. Then I worked on my great nephew's quilt awhile, while Pop rebuilt an old wheelbarrow which was falling apart. Now we have a refurbished "like new" wheel barrow saving us $50.I use wheelbarrows alot in my "yardening".

Don't know if the Martins stopped by today, since I was not out in the yard that much. Maybe another day.Hope your day was as relaxing as mine.Later.


  1. sounds like you all had a nice day together. Pappy has been on fry bolonga and eggs and gravy , biscuit for about a week, now he ready for something different. It sound nasty to me, that is something that I don't like. I just don't like eggs at all. Catch you later!
