I have discovered some entertaining TV shows this summer. I AM NOT A FAN OF ANY REALITY SHOWS AT ALL and neither is Danny. Even though it seems to be the "Craze" these days....well I have never been one to want to do what the "Jone's" do.

Any who......I am loving the new series on USA called ROYAL PAINS. I just love Hank!
HawthoRNe on TNT is another new series...I've only watched one episode and so far, I like it. So the DVR is set to catch more. Both of these series revolve around the medical field. Since I am a nurse....I guess that is some of the attraction for me.

Not a new series but new to me watching is BURN NOTICE. I love spy shows & movies so this is right up my alley....and funny too!!! Michael Weston, Sam & Fi are slick as oil!

THE CLEANER on A&E seems pretty good too. Again I have only watched one episode and have the DVR set to catch more. Benjamin Bratt is the star here. It is based on a true story about a guy with a drug addiction. He is rehabed and sets out to help others kick their habit.

THE CLOSER on TNT with Kyra Sedgwick has been one of my favorite shows since it started. She is girly but smart, not super woman tough but will use a gun if she needs too. A good drama.

So if your looking for a little's what my DVR is set to catch this summer.

So what's your favorite shows this year?

The weather in my neck of the woods:
Hot & Sunny. It was 96 yesterday. Should be about the same today.

One of my simple pleasures:
Mornings on the porch with Danny drinking coffee together.

On my bedside table:
The last few pages of Gone With the Wind. What a classic! I cant wait to see the movie again.

On my TV:
"Gidget", the first season. I love those old shows. Clean & funny. (I love Netflix!)I have also recorded some old classic movies from TCM. One is "Bringing Up Baby" with Kathrine Hepburn & Cary Grant. It is soooo funny!

On the menu for tonight:
We will be eating out at one of our favorite restaurants this evening. Chinese from "Wongs".

On my To Do List:
Buying some new furniture for a spare bedroom.
Looking at paint. Getting the necessary supplies for various paint projects.
A doctor's appointment.
Father's Day gift buying.

New Recipe I tried last week:
I made hash using cube steak from Venison. I usually use stew meat but I have a good bit of cubed meat that I need to use up. It turned out good.

In the craft basket:
I just dont have one!

Looking forward to:
Eating out again with my husband today. We had a day out sight seeing yesterday & ate out. Today we get to hang out together & eat out again. Danny has not felt like doing anything for a a year so it's nice to get out.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
I cant think of a thing!

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Despite her pain & suffering, my friend Miss. Mavee is still able to be humorous in it all. I love her courage.

Favorite photo from last week:
There is a huge wall of black berries growing on the edge of the woods here. The deer & rabbits come to it every day.

Lesson learned the past few days:
Getting out of the house with no known agenda, even for an afternoon, can give you a new perspective on things.

On my Prayer List:
Many Family members that are sick.
Many unspoken burdens.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
I continue to read from "Streams in the Desert". It is a daily encouragement to me.

Go over to Sandra's for more Happy Homemaker Mondays.

A Delicacy?

My boys decided to go frog giggin in our pond several nights ago. They gigged 8 all together. Danny fried them up along with some shrimp. I Could not bring myself to eat any despite their raves on how good it was. The legs fried up with the prettiest golden brown crust. Looking much like chicken....But I just couldn't do it!
