Split Pea Soup

We went to the Coast this weekend. It was a little chilly, but enjoyed the relaxation. Jim would like to move our trailer to Lot 87, but no one in the office knew how much that would cost us or even if it was available. It is on top of a little hill, so we might actually get internet and cell phone coverage. But, I will miss our neighbors. Guess I will have to ride my scooter over to see them.

Our favorite place to eat breakfast in Rockport. Best food ever! I cook breakfast when we are there but on Sunday we go to this Mexican restaurant. Great food!

Now to the split pea soup. My Mother cooked every dried bean there ever was. My Daddy lived on dried beans. We had them everyday. I always loved dried beans, but now I eat them almost everyday, just like my Dad. We never had dried green peas. We have dried black eyes all the time. Did they make dried green peas then? That is a question I would really like to ask my Mother, but I don't know if she would really remember. I think green peas taste like canned green peas but, NO the dried ones are awesome. No pasty taste. Omg, this soup was awesome! Bacon, dried green peas, carrots, leeks, garlic, Mrs. Dash, bay leaf and chicken broth. YUM! went back several times and got another spoonful of YUM.

Kaitlin being baptized.

Jim and I.

Duece laying by the heater because it is cold.

The "before" photo of my messy scraproom. I am working on cleaning it. Just not ready to show an "after" photo yet.

I decided that I would try to blog every Sunday this year. We will see how long it last. hehehe

I am sort of doing Project 365 where you take a photo every day. I am not putting any pressure on myself, so if I get 4 out of 7, I am good. I am doing Project 12 at Tallyscrapper, so I will be doing a layout for each month. Which brings up the best news ever! Pinky aka Cristal Hobbs has taken over Tallyscrapper and we are back in the ballgame! I am so excited about this! Tally has always been the best scrapbooking store/forum that I have ever visited. I have done a layout everyday since I heard the news. Pinky gives me so much inspiration.

And we ended the week (I know Sunday is the beginning of the week but I do payroll so it is week ending to me.) with our granddaughter, Kaitlin, accepting Jesus Christ in her life, as her Savior! It was awesome! Although the heater was out on the baptistry, and she was FREEZING. The preacher said that he was telling Kaitlin how sorry he was that the water wasn't heated, then he stepped down in the water and his waders had a hole in them. He was freezing also. Jim's entire family was there. We all went to Bill Miller's BBQ to eat afterwards. Now, they live in the city where there are so many restaurants, why did we go to fast food BBQ? Sorry, a little gripe there, Bill Miller's is like McDonalds in bbq. It has its own unique taste.

Looking forward to next week and hoping it is as eventful in a good way as this past week has been!

Getting the house ready for sale

Putting in a new pool liner.
William thought it was a giant playroom.

But Jason and William just played in the yard, for the most part.

Two little monkeys.
We really want to sell our house and get something smaller with a smaller yard. If it were up to me we would live in an apartment but Jim doesn't want to live that close to other people. We have done a lot of work on our house to get it ready for the market. All that's left is a new driveway and cleaning out closets, cabinets and drawers. We may be done by summer.
Jim and his son, grandson and granddaughter got the new pool liner in quickly. It seems Amanda has done this several times and new all about it. Her Mom helped her and they got 3/4 of it done while the 3 guys worked on the rest. I had my video camera ready, just in case I could capture something to win $10,000, but nothing very interesting happened.
On to the fun part of cleaning and getting rid of a lot of crap!
