Last Sunday morning when I looked out our bedroom window, I saw something on top of the fence. Strangely, I had never seen anything there before so I called Steve to come look. He didn't know what it was either but he was fixing to find out. Well it was a young racoon that had decided he needed a little rest. It was a really good thing that he was on the ball field behind the house and not in the backyard with the dogs. He is pretty cute - don't you think?
Today is a beautiful day, the sky is blue, the birds are singing and we are all fat and happy. Why does our world revolve around our next meal? I think one reason for us is that we both love to cook. Although I've been on a vacation from cooking most of the 3 years that we've been married - my craving to be in the kitchen is returning. Last weekend we had a pizza cook-off and the judges were Jackson, Hailey and my friend Lynn. Not one of them could define a winner in the competition but it was so much fun. Great way to spend a Friday night. My mind is now centered on what to fix Saturday night for the LSU game!!! Pictured below are two of the judges and I forgot about Daisy Mae being a judge...as you can see from the picture, she sampled way to much!
Good Morning Everyone! September is here and football is kicking off this Saturday. We are starting ours with a LSU Football Party on the deck. It is supposed to be a beautiful weekend with the lows in the upper 60's - we'll have some blankets available on the deck for those of us who aren't used to the cold weather LOL. Everyone in the state of Louisiana has really suffered this summer with heat indexes around 115. You know it's really bad when you have someone living in your town from Miami and they make a comment about the heat in Miami and how he has NEVER been as hot as he has been in Louisiana. Also he stated he had never been so cold - HA HA HA! Our humidity is a killer!
We have made the most of our hot summer with The 5 Dog Night by piling up in the A/C. Note the 5th dog is never there and that is because he is a very busy dog - hunting for whatever.
I'm married to Steve, we have 5 dogs thus the name The 5 Dog Night. I have one brother, Don and a nephew Donnie who both live in South Carolina. Along with my marriage to Steve came my step-children Jackson, Katie and her husband Cullen, Danielle and her husband Scott and our grandchildren Brooke, Lil Cullen and Anna Kate. Also included in this marriage is a huge family that I am so proud to be a part of Benjy & Alison, Jerelyn & Roger, Jeni & Bill and all the nieces and nephews that I love so dearly and don't let me forget Aunt Ruby and Uncle Lewis!
