Home Sweet Home


It is so nice to be back home.  While I do miss my Texas family, I am glad to be back home with my husband and dogs.  I have some photos to show to you of my trip.  Don't worry, I did not take any photos of my DIL's incision so there are no squeamish photos.

This the view across the street in Texas.  It is a huge green belt and so nice to look at.  There were lots of bunnies running out of it and going in and out of yards in the neighborhood.

My DIL's family use to own a restaurant.  Her job was to make the guacamole for the restaurant each week.  While I was there, she was kind enough to teach me her recipe for this wonderful treat.  I must say, I did pretty darn good making it.  It was almost gone 3 days after I made it.  Yup, I think I did ok on it.

The next thing she taught me to make was her bloody mary recipe.  Oh my!  They were so good.  It was fun to learn all of these things.  She also taught me her spaghetti recipe.

Now, you may ask, didn't I know how to make any of these items before I went there?  Yes I did, but it is always fun to try new ways to make items.  The guacamole will probably be the one recipe I will repeat here at home.  We seldom drink hard liquor at our home so bloody marys will probably not be made here.  The spaghetti sauce may be used but with a few twists on my end to just step it up a notch.  We like our sauce a bit spicier.

If you have not flown since the pandemic hit, be aware that face masks are required, by federal law, once you step foot into the airport and must remain on through your flight and are not to be removed until you exit the arrival airport.

I took this photo while waiting for my flight in Dallas.  Everyone was compliant.  

When I saw all these planes waiting to take off, all I could think of was how much longer I would be behind the face mask.  We took off 30 minutes late but managed to land 10 minutes early.  Go figure.

This week, I am dog watching and picking up the teen from school each day.  Next week, I am hoping life will return to a more normal schedule.

Tonight was trivia night.  Hubby, our daughter and myself were the team members.  Surprise!  We took first place!  It has been a while since we took first place.  There were a total of 10 or 11 teams so we felt pretty good about the win.  Now to go back next week and try and defend our title.

Time to go to bed.  I am still trying to get back onto our time zone.  

Until next time.........................................
