The Weekend Begins

I am back from my journeys, loaded up Barkley and headed out to Midwest Chick  and Mr. B.'s homestead. I don't live in Indianapolis but close enough the traffic is still wicked during race week.  I usually head way out of Dodge.  

Right now, I'm surrounded on the large couch  by tactical kitties Tank and Bob Cat while two black labs (Barkley and the Amazing Schmoo) are on the floor waiting for Mr. B. to cook the bacon and sausage. The backyard squirrels have made their early morning run on the bird food but were fended off  :-)

We're still pretty full from the blue cheese and bacon plus the mushroom and cheddar stuffed burgers grilled last night) but. . .

 It IS bacon and sausage.  . . and waffles.

 EJ is far away saving the world, to return soon, but the Og family is going to stop by, so much of the usual gang will be here.  I have four days off, there's a couple large bags in the freezer from Beef Mart and some steam engine bits in the barn.  Let the weekend begin!


  1. Have a wonderful, enjoyable, extended weekend!


  2. Sound like my kind of weekend, sometimes it is good to have no real plans and go with the flow. Enjoy my friend.

  3. Please have lots of fun this weekend.

  4. I discovered this morning that Small Fry is the only one who has a huge supply of shorts. (Her dinky little waist, zero hips, and tiny heinie all mean that she can--at 5!--still fit into most 24mo/2T shorts.) Medium Fry has more than Large Fry...who has a scant two pair from last summer that will fit her now. Guess what I'm doing today, given that it's supposed to be in the high 80s for the next week.... Have a good one!

  5. What a wonderful way to begin the day. Enjoy!

  6. *wants hanging signs* LOL - & the t shirt is cool, too....

    Wishing all the people and critters a very fun long weekend :)

  7. It was an awesome day. We watched Nascar and other than a moment where Mr. B. is reading the news on his laptop and quietly says "Jenna Jameson arrested for DUI after hitting pole" and I deadpanned "isn't that what she does for a living" and MC about snorted Pepsi, it was a quiet afternoon.

    The Og family, with Og's best friend and partner in grime M., made it over. We consumed fresh baked snackies and spoiled the dogs and I got to have a long and very great conversation with the Oglette about Sabre fencing which she is excelling in. (I am looking forward to watching her do that, she is one very talented young lady).

    The chocolate stout cake was dismembered and all is well with the world.

    You all have a safe weekend, posts on freedom, liberty, and family coming up tomorrow and Monday, while I enjoy more time with friends.

  8. Bacon AND steam engine bits...

    What a great weekend...

  9. "tactical kitties"

    Round here, it's singular. The Tacticat. Tacticats rock. :-)


I started this blog so the child I gave up for adoption could get to know me, and in turn, her children, as well as share stories for a family that lives too far away. So please keep it friendly and kid safe. Posts that are only a link or include an ad for an unknown business automatically to to SPAM..
