Yep, lazy Saturday's are rare

Good morning AR friends!!!! Welcome to the weekend.  Woke up early this morning.  A chill in the air as South Dakota awakes to a cloudy morning with no view of the sunrise. I know is there in the distance in it's glory bursting with various shades of red and yellow.  Coffee on and thoughts go through my head as to what might this ole gal get accomplished today.  The house is so quiet.  I truely miss the Saturday's gone by with little boys morning smiles and yells of "MOM, WHEN ARE WE GOING TO EAT! Then again, relish the peacefulness of the  morning as well.
  As my mind rolled through it's rolodex of optional things to do, groceries were a priority.  Only a few things needed for the week, milk, yeast and a few other odds and ends. Small list makes for low cost this week! YES! Have other errends to run and the day seemed open to whatever may come. 
  My first cup of coffee joined me in the office, with taxes to send in for my college bond son. Which I was 'suppose' to do last weekend, but that didn't happen. (The blizzard and all had me all in a glorious state  much like that of a child on Christmas Eve)  He should be plesantly surprised that the government will be kicking him a few bucks back.  I am not letting him on though....will keep him guessing until his money makes it to his account.  Can't wait for that phone call when he discovers his refund amount.
   As I was just finishing up, there was a knock on the door.  My ears were filled with the sounds of my granddaughter (she's 8 months old) and my son, so ever softly singing "Grandma, can I come and play".  Grandpa, the ole fool,beat me to the door. We pushed and shoved each other like two black Friday shoppers racing for the last sale item.  There she was, our little princess, smiling ear to ear as GRANDPA scooped her up.  In my mind I knew the rest of the day would be on the floor playing and talking.  As morning turned into afternoon, our little girl grew weary of our constant attention and basically relayed to us, 'Ok you two, enough for now, I AM POOPED!"  So now she naps and the house is again silent for short time. Found myself compelled to visit here and see what everyone was up to before her nap cycle had completed. Do believe everything is on hold for the day, as my priorities for this particular Saturday have changed. The day will just have to be spent on the floor, or in the rocker with a very deserving attention thief.  With that our lazy day continues. 

Sorry for any typing or grammer errors, but then again, it IS a lazy day!

The morning coffee only tastes right when it is enjoyed with a quiet morning. And the grand kids? We thought our turn with the younguns was done when pop! we have a bonus one! So the pitter patter of overzealous feet are savored once again.

About Me
Married American Female, mother of 5 all American boys,Grammy to 2 girls and 2 boys! Yep, that's me. I find I love to cook more and more. Relaxing, keeps my mind on things other then stressing over things that don't matter.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is soups. Split pea, veggie beef, chicken noodle and so on. And YES, all from scratch, not a can. I find myself feeling Julia Childlike (so wish I had her talent for cooking) while dicing and chopping!
My favorite family cooking traditions
That's an easy one. In Grandma's recipe box, this is where I will find our cooking traditions from bread to homemade ice cream.
My cooking triumphs
I have never tried to make homemade bread, other then a bread maker or frozen bread dough. Nor have I even dared to dabble in using "yeast". That was my sisters department. I baked cookies and made soup! Well this year, after 50 years of believing that making cinnamon rolls would be a complete failure, I tried the recipe from AR called Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls. It supplies a how to video, so I gave it a shot. I DID IT. They turned out so good, that I make another batch the next day.
My cooking tragedies
LOL, the thought of it still burns my tongue! On the Food Network there is a cook called the Pioneer Women. She made a pulled pork recipe one day and raved how her family LOVED it. It had a a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce in it and this was something I had NEVER used before. I gave it my best shot and was so excited for my family to eat supper that took ONE small bite and you could see flames shooting from the tips of every strand of hair on our heads. My husbands bald head(bless his heart) was pouring with sweat as he tried to politely relay to me that I should NEVER make this again! Needless to say it was trashed, sadly as I dumped it in the garbage, my confidence slipped from adventuring off in a direction unknown by us week tongued people.
