Thankful 7th


Today was quite cooler than the days before....we were only to a high of about 57....I hear tonight is going to be close to the freezing mark.  It doesn't get too cold here, at least not for a long period of time.  We have spells of it.  But on a sunny day, the mid 40's are pretty decent as long as the wind isn't blowing. 

So tonight I am thankful for warm food, a warm house, my warm clothes, my bed, coffee that is brewing before I get out of bed in the mornings (or else Miss T would be nasty), fall collards and for my warm car.

Fall collards you ask?  YES....once the first frost or two has nipped them, mmmmmmmmmmmmm that is some good eatin.

It's actually the only GREEN leaf I will eat beyond lettuce.  I don't eat turnips, brussel sprouts or mustard or cabbage plain....rarely do I eat spinich, unless it's on a pizza or rolled up with bread crumbs and cheese.  The family cooks always tried to get me to eat the others, but LISTEN UP PEOPLE I DON'T LIKE THEM OK????!!!!!!

Now Miss T....that's another story.  She LOVES turnips and collards.  Don't think she's much on mustard greens or cabbage.

That is why I'm thankful that I was raised in the COUNTRY!!!  None of this city-fied eatin for me.  Cans of this and bags of that.  Mr Man thinks veggies come in a bag,, how'd ya think they got there dude?

Don't get me wrong, I have and still do open cans and dump them in a pot.  But the very bestestinthewholewideworld is fresh speckled butterbeans or field peas or sweet corn or tomatoes or potatoes or cucumbers or watermelon......right out of the garden.

Wonder if I can talk Nanny into fryin up some chicken this weekend and breaking out some veggies for me. 

Boy oh boy would I have something ELSE to be thankful for!

LOL...what's up with all the thankful stuff...hehe?  I saw Shelly doing this too.  Ugh, I might have to scratch my head and come up with a new entry this month.  Thanks for the bday card.  I'm planning on doing something like drinking too much.  I saw you have a nasty headache.  Hope that goes away soon.  I used to get them all the time.  Love ya, Chris
