A little us time and a little me time...

Last weekend when my hubby came home, while I was making dinner (a nice big pot of Navy Bean and Ham soup) I spotted my espresso pot... sitting so quietly on the stove-top. Hmmm. Haven't had espresso in a while. So, just before the hubs was due in the door I put on a pot.


My largest espresso pot. A great deal at Homegoods. Had to have it. It holds about 8-10 espresso size cups.


I found a bag of espresso ground coffee from a very well-known gift shop around my hometown. I freeze my coffee that doesn't get used for a while. The flavor is Snickerdoodle.


Don't you wish you could smell this?


Espresso anyone?

And earlier this week... a little me time.

Well, maybe some "we" time. Morning coffee and a little time with Betty Crocker Triple Berry Muffin (tops). Yeah, they're out of a bag mix, but sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

Hugs, Penny Sue

OK, just shoot me now...

Well, Thanksgiving visits came and went and I never once reached for my camera. I guess I'll stick to smaller projects. My husband and I had Thanksgiving Dinner here at our house along with my Dad, our son and daughter-in-law (and grand daughter) and a friend of our son's, who was not able to go home from college to have Thanksgiving celebrations with his own family. We had such a good time. The only thing was we didn't sit down to eat until an hour later than we had hoped. But hey, this is only my second Thanksgiving dinner... and this time I told myself NO stress. Sometimes I get so caught up in sticking to such a tight schedule that I lose perspective and get tense and stressed out and then I know my family can sense that. So, I tried a NO stress approach. My husband saw a slip here and there, but for the most part, I think I did pretty good.

Apologies all around... and hugs too... Penny Sue
