Monday Miscellany

Funny how at work I can think of all these things I want to blog about, but when I get home and sit down at the computer, I can't remember a single one of them.

Yeah, that's my life.

They've cut out all of our overtime at work.  That means, no more 4:15 mornings for me!  At least not for a couple of days, until they decide that yes, the brazers really do need to come in early.

Former Group Leader Rod has really had a rough couple of days.  He came in this morning and asked me how my weekend was.  I said it was OK, then asked him how his weekend was.  He said, "You don't want to know."  Then he walked around all day with those up and down wrinkles in his forehead --those are the bad kind-- so I'm making him some peanut butter cookies.

Those ought to make his world a little brighter. 

I made myself some liver and onions for supper.

Liver is one of those things I'd never had until I got grown.  My mother didn't make it.  She didn't make sausage gravy or tomato sandwiches, either.  What was she thinking? 

You know, I've tried all the tips and tricks for chopping onions without crying.  You name it, I've tried it.  None of them work for me.  I've just given up on that one.  I guess my eyes are just really sensitive. 

Speaking of, I made the Worlds Best Breakfast Casserole for them at work that last Friday when I was off.  They've been asking me all week when I was going to bring breakfast again.  I guess I'll have to get around to that soon.

But enough about food...

Here's a little something about me I'll bet you didn't know.  I've never been a big jewelry person.  But that's something you probably did know.  The part you probably didn't know is that I love anklets.

I always have.   Having something around my ankle makes me feel  So does wearing cutoff blue jeans, but we won't go there...

When I was in the Navy, I had quite the little side business going.  I made friendship bracelets out of DMC cross stitch/embroidery thread.  Most people wore them on their wrists.  I wore mine on --you guessed it-- my ankles. 

I'm up to 434 books on my Kindle, and so far, I've paid a total of $2.07.  I wasn't sure if they would do it, but yes they did.  Amazon actually charged my credit card  $.01.  Yep, that is one penny. 

Right now, I'm reading Right Ho, Jeeves, by P.G. Wodehouse.

I got another knitting commission going.  A friend of mine has her own yarn dying business and she wants samples knit of the yarn, so's people can see kind of what it will look like worked up, and the different things you can do with such yarns.  She sells sock and lace weight yarn.  I volunteered to make, um, yeah...a hat.  Betcha didn't see that one coming, did you?

One last thing before I go: 

The World's Best Breakfast Casserole

2 cans crescent rolls
1 lb ground sausage (your choice of flavors)
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese

Preheat oven to 375'.  Line the bottom of a baking dish with one can of the crescent rolls.  Bake 5-7 minutes, or until they just begin turning brown.  Meanwhile, brown the ground sausage and drain the grease.  Melt the cream cheese into the sausage and stir until well blended.  Put into baking dish and top with the other can of crescent rolls.  Bake 15 or so minutes until the rolls are well browned.

Try not to eat it all at once.

I love anklets, too!! Funny, I just saw a conversation on Facebook about ankle bracelets being age-inappropriate for women after marriage or childbirth. Huh?? Belly button rings, maybe, but ankle bracelets?? I'll wear them until I'm too frail to bend down and put it on, thankyouverymuch!

Also, Mmmmm... Diet casserole, eh? ;)

Really? What if you get married at 18? Or have a baby at 14? Are you still to old then? I don't think so.

Speaking of, I saw a lady in church this morning. She looked to be in her late 50s or early 60s. She had a toe ring on. That just didn't look right, but her anklet was fine.

Belly button rings are never appropriate in my opinion.
