Breakfast time....what is on the plate this morning::::
A big cup of coffee and then a homemade fruit smoothie (banana, pineapple, strawberry and cherries) before I go to the gym.
On today's to do list::::
- Gym and then the pool in time to wait for the washing machine repair man in the afternoon.

- If the wind isn't blowing this afternoon I'll finish painting the baker's rack.
- Pick up my new glasses.
On the TV today::::

New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::
Hubs and I were having a SERIOUS chocolate craving the other day. I had the main ingredients for Kraft Fantasy Fudge EXCEPT the chocolate so I had to improvise and pray it would work. Not only did it work, it was FANTASTIC in fact they were just short of orgasmic! So if you are having a chocolate craving try my version of Fantasy Fudge. Pumpkin Pull Apart Bread and Malibu Chicken are both on the try this week menu. Malibu Chicken used to be a frequent menu item in many restaurants, but you never see it anymore and I've been craving it so will try to develop a recipe this week.
In the garden::::
I've been sterilizing the ground in the planter out front and hope to finish with removing the rock, putting down new and thicker tar paper before rearranging the whiskey barrels and running new bubblers.
Favorite photo from the camera::::
There are beautiful sunsets here in the desert, but I cannot wait to be out of this heat!
Buy the extended warranty on appliances! Mom didn't and the washing machine repair was half the cost of a new machine and this machine is only 2 years old.
Visiting with Blog friends (blog you want to share, blog post that caught your eye)::::
Diary Of a Stay at Home Mom - I love that she still takes blogging AND homemaking seriously!
Guidance and patience with the woman handling the house sale - she has no follow through, common sense or common courtesy and I pray that she receives help in ALL of those areas.
