Ain't it so good to be home! I've drank my weight in ice tea while sitting on the porch. Man how I miss a porch! Bojangles biscuits, Taco Bell, BBQ buffet, Claussen pickles, and SQUASH.... tore it up!!!!
One sad thing I found was they shut down the local Wednesday night drag racing. There use to be a copper 70' Chevelle that would make me drool when she hit the strip. Anyhow, these new cop cars roaming around look pretty sweet though!
Update on my Daddy: He is rocking his new cow valve! I saw him in the morning with tubes galore.... came back after lunch and there was only a few left. He was up, talking smack, and cracking jokes. If all is well he should be home next week. Thanks for sending all that healing energy his way!
Bento stuff???? I've been to the Dollar Tree, Walmart, Kmart, and Target. The best I got was the little Hello Kitty eggs. I would have thought to have found some picks or something! Where do ya'll shop for stuff?

Meet the other half of my stress! It's still not finished but I'll post some pictures now and take a video later so ya'll can get all the ''ooooooohhhhhhhhs and aaaaaaahhhhhhs' with all the really neat features.
My Daddy has come through his tests with one dysfunctional valve but all the rest is clear and running smoothly. They will be preforming open heart surgery within the next week to replace the valve. I thank ya'll so much for keeping him in ya'lls thoughts.
My house is almost void of food so I've been sending them to work/school with pocket money for lunch. I don't reckon I'll be making anything more this week so on an absolutely fantastic note... I'll be seeing ya'll on the other side of the pond!
We've already established that I'm not a camera whiz. This picture does it no justice and it's no where near that dark in there.

I don't have any pictures today because they are just gonna get something chucked in a thermos for lunch.
Some of the stress in my life of late is my Dad is about to go in and have some tests done on his heart. They already know there are some serious issues but tomorrow they are going to find out the whole story. If it's as bad as they fear then they will crack him open then and there. If it's possible to delay then they will wake him to discuss further options at a later date. If I can be so bold to ask if ya'll got a spare moment please send out some good vibes for the man.
It's a good thing our vacation is happening around the same time.
One week to go!

This photo is from a snowdrop walk we went on awhile back at Hodsock Priory. It is very beautiful walking through the woods with tons of these dainty white flowers covering the forest floor. Ya'll should look at their website as there are better pictures on there and I don't reckon I'm allowed to upload them. I can only hope that my snowdrops will spread over the years and be as gorgeous.

I love snowdrops. They always make a cold February more enjoyable.
Only two weeks left till we go to the states. We have to start trying to eat down the groceries from the freezer and pantry, so lunches could get really strange :)

The girl and I were walking to town today to do a bit of shopping. She stopped, pointed and screamed at a miniature white poodle, 'You are going to kill me' then she ran.
The woman stood there horrified and I could only shrug my shoulders and smile.
I've no idea where it came from or what it was all about but the look on the woman's face was priceless.
Rice, chicken veggie stir fry, strawberry, quail eggs, cheese, and ham

Man... I should know better then to read blogs before I post my own. I just finished through all the new posts and there it was on Bento Birds blog. It has made me lose all train of thought. Scroll down 9 pictures... just there.... you see it? Oh it's there in all it's yellow deliciousness... the almighty crook neck squash. I can't get them off my mind now.
I've been lost in my own imagination for the last few minutes of all things squash. My own little montage going through my head of being in a serene waterfall backdrop and it starts raining squashes ... walking through woodlands and there on the forest floor little dainty squash flowers... laying on a beach watching waves of squash...going to a stage play with squash characters singing, dancing and acting out their little parts...... Yeah you get the idea.
When I get home and go grocery shopping, that is the first thing I'm gonna make!
I just had a thought... I'd look pretty stupid if them weren't squash in that picture! LOL!!!!!!
Fish, mash taters, peas, french fancy, carrots, satsuma, and a yogurt

I've not really done anything today so I don't really have anything to talk about unless you want to hear about my wonderful world of vacuuming.
