~ Way behind, and a lot of catching up to do. ~

My Valentine from Mother Dearest. This cute cute, poodle dog and a cute card with a sucker. Thank You Mom. You are the greatest!

For Valentines Day I gave the boys their little gift from me,and for the whole family... I cooked this nice big juicy pork picnic ham... the ones with the big bone in the middle of it. Cooked it in my big electric roasting pan. As you can see it fell apart.. that's when you know it's good and tender. And tender it was. I also cut up some cabbage to go with it... I had a few potatoes so I decided to throw those in there with it. I don't hardly ever go by a recipe. This is what you call a Irish meal, right here. Cabbage and ham! I grew up eating alot of cabbage and potatoes also Cornbeef and cabbage. Yum! I have a Little Irish cook book and you wouldn't believe what one of the recipes is.... cornbeef and cabbage and another one is Potato soup. Like I said, I grew up eating that kind of food. I'm over half Irish and part Indian. Makes me feel a little special.

Here is my new and improved side table that I use as a end table in the living room. Don't you just think it's lovely... I think so! Here is the before picture of it when it was a ugly brown. HEW!
I know I am so behind on my blogging. So much has been going on everyday! I am now working three days a week... four hours a day. Sitting with an elderly lady... she is 98 years old. She was born and raised in our home town.. you know she can tell some story's. I love to here them.
Findly what you all have been waiting for... the BIG SURPRISE THANK YOU... it goes out to Robin from bittersweetpunkin, for sending these beautiful camo valances for my boys room. As you can see they love them very much! Thank you Thank you..

Thank you all for stopping by. Sorry I have been away so long. Have a bless and wonderful day.

I figured you were probably busy. Nothing wrong with that. Good to see ya post though. Nice Valentines from your Mom. That picture looks yummy!! That side table needed to be white, great job!

Are you writing down any of the stories this dear lady tells you? They would be very interesting. Any of them you could blog about? You are probably learning so much from her.

Those valances are great!!

Great to see you, Regina, and thanks for the comment on my post.

Take care.

Regina!! How wonderful..I LOVE the photos! The valances match perfectly! I had to supersize one to see the smiles on your sweet boys' faces...I am so glad they like them! I am very happy that you could put them to good use after having them just sit in a box in my garage for the past 2 years!! That was a wonderful Thank you..it really touched my heart...you are all welcome!
Hugs to all,
