Peach State says: It’s All Theirs?

It’s All Theirs?. I think an extra space would be appreciated!
Happy Tax Day everyone!

I am so glad not to be scurrying around, like a chicken with it’s head cut off, panicking over this deadline! Instead, I am stuck at home…without a car…

I promise to work very hard to find something to do. It won’t be that hard to do seeings how I have not been home much for the past two weeks! I could begin packing for our trip to see our son in the Army…oops! Started that yesterday!

Yes, we are very excited to see him. He has 2-12hour passes and we haven’t see him in a few months.

I did quite a bit yesterday and managed to walk more steps than my hubby who worked all day…wait a second…I worked all day too! Lol!!!

The rainy morning will facilitate a slower pace to start the day but, I should be breaking the sound barrier later today! It will be beneficial to focus on something other than a yelling teenager. (Not a good start!)

Precious Princess is sleeping soundly at my feet and my breakfast espresso is half gone…of course I will have seconds this morning. (Insert chuckle here)

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: One Of My Favorite Things!

20140211-081427.jpg
One Of My Favorite Things…is sitting at the table just off my kitchen with the window blinds wide open watching the falling snow! It has been falling for just a short time. The fluffy flakes are quietly filling in the rain soaked area on the ground as a slushy mix is replaced by a pillowy white covering.

20140211-082303.jpg
The best is yet to come! The weather personalities in our area have forecasted an ice storm tonight and tomorrow. “Can you say goody?” ( please repeat the previous question using a sarcastic tone!!!)
I have had many experiences with “ice storms” and by the time I was married knew how to survive one. The longest and most memorable was in Washington State…I saw the pattern and prepared! Others were not as lucky! By the time is was dark I had my hubby home from work, 4 hours early, and food on the stove with the fire going. Hubby was thrilled to walk in to a cozy fire especially when he realized the power was out. “It stayed out for almost 45 hours!” Ahh…memories!!!

Once this event is over I will share more pics with you! “I know my friends will post some great pictures on Facebook.” (Hint…Hint…) For now I will sit back and sip on my “Oh So Wonderful Cup of Coffee Espresso” and enjoy this quiet and serene snowfall.

That didn’t last long…the youngest is up! LOL!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: Short But Sweet Facebook Funnies!

20140123-125648.jpg
Coughing…scratchy throats…constant blowing of the nose… These symptoms are running ( excuse the pun) rampant on my FB page. It seems to be all anyone is really talking about…unless you add the weather! So I will share the few funnies I have in this

Short But Sweet Facebook Funnies!

20140123-130106.jpgPre-Valentine thoughts! Noooo! Not yet!

20140123-130236.jpgI have a cure for that…cover the mirrors.

Peach State says: And So It Begins…

20140107-080039.jpg
Staring me straight in the face, reminding me of my promise, is my tasteful and healthy “Special K” protein shake!

And So It Begins!

You may notice my constant companion standing nearby…sadly almost empty! “That is okay…

20140107-080519.jpgreinforcements are standing ready for battle the day ahead! At least that is what the cup may think…I had a major coughing episode early this morning and needed some special help from my constant companion. I have been fighting this ridiculous itchy throat and cough for almost a week now…and that is long enough! I think it is time to try another route of medication. This feeling of drowning is not working for me! At least I am keeping hydrated! So it is the least I can do to brew about another 8oz and combine with the leftovers! “Can’t let it go to waste…right?”

I am quite wiped from my late night and issues from coughing. I was up past my bedtime due to the BCS National Championship. It was a bit emotional as I watched my favorite-all-time-prick-my-finger-and-I-bleed-Orange-and-Blue Auburn Tigers almost defeat the number one team in the National Championship. They said we couldn’t make it to the championship and…WE DID! It was a great game…nail biting and heart-wrenching! Time to move on to the next item…the college football season is over and our focus now turns to our favorite NFL team from my hubby’s home state and guess what…They are in the number one seed for the division!

I am chilled, as I sit here at the kitchen table, feeling the cold penetrating the window panes. It is about 5 degrees this morning and there is a breeze! “Yay!” I have watched the sunrise, with all it’s glory, quietly brighten the morning sky. The golden shimmer has finally spread across the surrounding browning landscape. The deceivingly warm glow from the rising sun has captured the tooth-pick trees in my backyard.

20140107-084446.jpg “I wish I was under my blanket! My luck I would get warm and cozy and start coughing.” I have had enough of that so no blanket time! I think I will head upstairs and pull everything out of my linen closet. There are sheets in that abyss that have no bed to fit and towels that should have been left at camp when the boys came home after a week of use! (Lol…I just pictured wet, icky towels being hidden away in the back of the closet, by my sons, and oozing all over like an infection!) Fortunately that is not the case…just over stacking of badly folded and mixed up towels and sheets!

I am still sitting here…procrastinating spending time with you! Although you are more fun to talk to I really need to go! My “constant companion” is ready to go and I must follow suit!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

20140102-100834.jpg
Well it arrived…with a bang and a boom, flood and storm, with and without football…it is 2014 and time for

HAPPY NEW YEAR…Facebook Funnies!

Before the clock had even reached midnight the continuous sounds of bursting fireworks penetrated our family home…even with a movie on! ( My family loves having a realistic movie experience so hubby installed a sound system in the living room that often sets off the glass break sensor!) We toasted and cheered the New Year and each other…then sent the youngest to bed! The rest of us were up until about 2AM…can you believe I stayed awake? Let me share one reason I was up so late…

Peach State says: The Simple Joy of Coffee!

20131227-080523.jpg
There was tingling chill as I reached the kitchen this morning in my bare feet. The flick of a switch sheds light on my morning as I press the VIP switch “ON” and proceed to clad my shivering toes in warm socks. I finish and return to the routinely important process and wait for it… I pause and breathe in….Ahh!

“The Simple Joy of Coffee!”

A genuine-shoulder-relaxing-scent wafts it’s way capturing all of my senses.

20131227-081300.jpg

It’s true! Very few words are spoken in the first 15-20 minutes of the morning….
Translation:Hubby and I are too busy sipping and enjoying the first tastes as we finally come to the realization another day has started! Sadly there are days when we cannot seem to get enough coffee and we find ourselves a bit out of sorts! ( What? I was trying to say it nicely!). The neatest thing happened Christmas evening…my hubby, feeling quite neglected by his oversized coffee cup, found his way into the kitchen…ALL BY HIMSELF! He pressed the required buttons and filled the correct filters and came away with a flavorful brew. “Now if I could just get him to possibly make me a cup when he strolls into the kitchen….” (Whack!) It’s okay…I am awake now!

I will be content to making my own…whenever I want a smile-provoking-cup-of-caffeinated-warmth!

20131227-082909.jpg

Enjoy and repeat! Ahh, The Simple Joy of Coffee!

Is your cup still full? Do you need more? “I do!”

Peach State says: Facebook Funnies Friday!

20131108-081115.jpg
The truth is that this freakish-red-nosed-clown was holding me captive yesterday and I could not write my post. “Okay…That is not true and it’s highly unlikely!” I think I will still blame “IT”! So let’s see what we can find for “Facebook Funnies Friday!”

Now that Halloween is over we must move in an orderly fashion to the next holiday…What to do?

20131108-081801.jpg
Clean up!
