When it's hot it's hot!

It has been so incredibly hot in Middle Tennessee this summer!  I live in my sleepwear around the clock so I go for the lightest but prettiest thing that I can find. When you have got to be "covered", but want to feel "naked" this is the route to go!   https://www.shop4simplepleasures.com/collections/sleeveless-gowns/products/sleeveless-short-gown-cotton-lace

It's Fall in beautiful Tennessee!!

Time for pumpkins, dandelion tea, and hot homemade soups!  I love to cook when I have time, and soups are my favorite thing to make.  Always different because I throw in everything but the kitchen sink!  Vegetarian Vegetable with Pasta......Loaded Potato with Cheddar.......Italian Sausage......yummm!!!! My pumpkins will eventually be scooped out for the seeds and the rest backed for delicious pies for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Pumpkin is oh-so-delicious and oh-so-healthy too!

I am such a fan of this and all Jane Austen movies. I have been known to...

"....let her own works praise her in the gates."

Proverbs 31:10-31 10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. 11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. 13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. 14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar. 15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. 16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the...
