Advice From Another Blogger [ not me ]

The advice comes from a very successful blogger with years o experience, tons of talent and surely as much energy. That would be Ree Drummond who shares so much of herself on .
Her advice to bloggers [ that's me & you ] is no matter if you are posting something pages in length or just sharing a photo you should post regularly, often.

Sooooooooo here goes. I dont think there is anything creative or inspiring or entertaining left in me at the end of this hot summer day in south Alabama -so todays post will be just this, to share  The Pioneer Woman's blog site with dash on over there. There is more to read, copy, mull over and make use of than you can handle in ...who knows, quite a while.  You just have to stop by her ranch regularly. You'll be in good company and I might add a large gathering of visitors.

Laundry Day~Don't You Love it?

Yes, I do love laundry day at the Harrison House. You didn't know anyone has a specific day [ & only one] to do the family laundry? Well we do.  It's one of the changes we  made about five years ago when we both became  officially retired. 
For so many years any day could be laundry day..and most days did find at least one small load being done. 
There is something comfortable about knowing when we wake up on Thursday [ that's our day] we know exactly what is about to happen.  Since I am most often the last to get out  bed I begin removing the sheets and pillow cases. Next the laundry basket comes out of the hamper in my bathroom and colors & whites are grouped & dropped into a basket outside my bathroom door.  That way "the help" can't miss it or forget  that  today is laundry day. 

If you are not yet at that 'loving laundry day' place in life then I must remind you that the HELP is my laundry service or to be more specific [& truthful] the HELP and laundry service are one and the same: My husband. That's his choice.

Now you understand why I celebrate this special day.  There is nothing quite like seeing those clothes come in the door on hangers or in neat little perfectly organized stacks.  I cannot wait to rush and take those beautiful stacks of white sheets and towels [ just being thoughtful] from him  and begin to put them in place.  That way everything is in perfect order..just the way his wife wants it.  You realize 'trust' just goes so far ladies.  The right way to store and stack is MY WAY...period.

What's Better ?

What's Better Than Having a Wonderful Pear Tree Loaded With  Fruit ready to pick?  ANSWER: Having a neighbor who has that tree in her yard and she never uses them.

Thanks my dear friend!  These are just begging to be used for those crescent roll turnovers that have mountain dew soda as the last ingredient. Yes, it works with Granny Smith Apples too.  YUMMO! [Quoting Rachel Ray, of course]

Do you NOT HAVE that recipe? Just go to  Ree Drummond's  website and search using some of these key words: apple dumplings, crescent roll, mountain dew.  Apples or Pears it spells delicious!

 If you don't find it just ASK ME. It's super Easy! She not only shares the recipe but she does it step by step WITH PICTURES.
