It's hard to find a good TV show.
One I have enjoyed over the last few years has been TNT's "The Closer". Well, there are only two episodes left.
Do any of you watch it? I was tearful at the end of last nights episode! So sad. BUT, there will be a spin off that I'm looking forward to.
Another show I am enjoying is "Perception", also on TNT.
I pretty much stay away from reality shows. I did become a fan of "Swamp People" and "Mountain Men". The interaction among the families on "Swamp People" was/is encouraging.
If you are a follower of "Swamp People", isnt it so sad about the death of Mitchell Guist! What will happen to his poor brother Glenn.
A first look at the "Swamp People" and it may be easy to think these are simple, rednecks without a job. I am envious of them!! These are hard working, smart individuals that were not afraid to support their families in such an unconventional way! What a life!!!
Now I will have to confess something here. In the 90's when I was furthering my degree, (not working)my husband worked construction at the time. When in between jobs, Danny would trap...and hunt...and fish. Trapping was a pretty impressive job. One of true skill. Maybe I wll share more of the old Trapper Dan days (as we call it around here) in a post one day.
We didnt know it at the time, but we were living a pretty good life. Dont Knock it!
So that's it for TV....
Kinda got a little off subject there didn't I? LOL!

I haven't blogged in so long. I have debated if I should try again or not. But for now...
It is HOT & the humidity is at 98%! We got a 1/2 an inch of rain yesterday and expecting more today. We need it.
On my reading pile:::
Six Hours One Friday by Max Lucado
Dare to Discipline by James Dobson
On my tv:::
Mountain Men (Im on the last episode)
On the menu for this week:::
I dont have a definitive menu yet but I am making a trip to my butcher Wednesday to get some fresh pork sausage, bacon and riblets. I spent the afternoon yesterday going through my recipes...weeding them out. So hopefully some good cooking is a comin!
On my to do list:::
Which to do list? The imaginary one that just gets things added on & never taken off, OR the one that is just down right necessity?
Washing & hanging out clothes
Vacuum & mop the kitchen & living room.
Sounds like I should have an easy day, huh...NOT!!!
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
I dont think there will ever be anything in this
catagory for me...
TILEX...this is the best stuff man created! It is a bleach cleaning product but is wonderful! I use it on my ceramic sinks, bathtubs, toilets, shower, swimming pool, on my ceramic tile, porch railings, outdoor furniture...the list goes on & on. I love it!
Looking around the house:::
Grandson is playing with a book on the floor...evidence of his playing is ALL around, (hence the need for cleaning the floors!). The house is dim this morning..it is over-cast outside. There is a mess of tomatoes on the counter that need to be processed.
From the camera:::
I'm dreaming of all things Fall during these dog days!
On my prayer list:::
A family situation that is requiring a lot of patience and forgiveness.
Family memeber recovering from back surgery.
Hospitalization of a a family memeber yesterday.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
My parents-n-law gave me a "Streams in the Dessert". It always has something to hit home, to encourage, to uplift.
Go over to Sandra's for more Happy Homemaker Monday.
