Why Am I On The Computer

A frosty morning
now sun is shining and prediction of afternoon 60 degrees.

Picked last night, love fresh herbs, not the little envelopes of dried herbs at the market,
sorry I put none in the freezer this summer.
Basil, Dill, Cilantro used frequently and need my Sage for Thanksgiving corn bread dressing.
Cooked a favorite meal yesterday
so have for my 2:00 meal today.
Salmon Croquette's, mashed potatoes, black eyed peas and corn bread..
Is it too proud to say that I like my food better then restaurant food.  Last pick up
after being at the market did not agree with me.   I love to cook and bake, always have
and the last year with health issues baking was rare.  Still heath issues but I am forcing myself
to bake.  Takes me longer but I put every thing out the night before and bake the next early morning
but do not like the cleanup as it takes longer at this time.

My Jamie offered lodging for writing about Gatlinburg, Tennessee, oh my beautiful
cabin - looks like more then a cabin to her mama.
So welcome is this weekend home by myself and much to do.
Many books week after week I say I am going to organize - need to do it.
My son recently sent me more book marks and need to pull many special ones
out of books that are sitting everywhere.
Received an Email from a university wanting to know if I would be interested in reading
my blog to vision impaired.  Checking on it and thinking...

I just wanted to check in
and day is rapidly going by
and this one has much to do and also New York Times and local paper by my special chair.

Do dread leaving for an appointment soon to have crown replaced.   For 70 years never any tooth
problems and seems from then on at the dentist frequently.

Do not like  leaving this cottage....

Is that your home? Oh my, oh my, how wonderful it is. Look at that view!!! And that gorgeous fireplace! Oh thank you so much, for sharing your beautiful home.

Hope the tooth crown, went smoothly.

I seem to have spent the last year, having my teeth "fixed"... The result of a bad dental experience, for years previously. -sigh-

Gentle hugs,
Luna Crone

I don't like leaving home either. :-)

How interesting to be contacted to read your blog posts to the visually impaired. You have a lovely way of writing that is lyrical and I am sure would be enjoyed by many more through this medium.

Love, hugs & prayers for you dear Ernestine ~ FlowerLady

Do not punish yourself when the computer goes glitchy. We all have that problem from time to time. Technology changes and we who are home alone instead of at work must learn for ourselves. Write when you can on your blog as we love to read what you are eating. You give me ideas when I am in a slump on what to cook. Our children are busy and our lives are not so busy.

Tabor, thank you so much for encouragement.
Seems I may have found problem
