Monday- Stuff and Thangs


I woke up a bit late this morning and right away I started cleaning and I had one last load of wash to finish today. Lucy right away was giving me flack for not taking a rest now and then and I think I should have listened to her. I wasn't wearing my brace and my knee gave out again but this time I was hanging on to the washer when I almost fell. I promptly put the brace on and sat down for a bit before continuing my cleaning. I then noticed I hadn't watered my houseplants for almost 2 weeks so I filled a pitcher with water and gave them all a nice drink. Lucy gave up on me and curled up on the sofa and took a nap. Lazy little girl. So now I'm sitting next to her typing away and loving the quiet that is this house. 
It's overcast and muggy from the humidity this morning. I can hear the distant thunder just south of us. I checked the weather map and it showed a storm near the coast. That's a good 100 miles at least and yet it's so quiet today that I can hear the rumbling. Yesterday we had thunderstorms and rain off and on all day long. It was refreshing to have the rain put an end to all the pollen flying around. The roses in our front yard certainly loved the rain. They are blooming like crazy again and my little lemon trees loved that rain too. I will have to get David to move a couple of bags of potting soil for me so I can repot them when I get back from my doctor's office on Wednesday. I have to repot the ficus and I also need to repot my hanging baskets too. Since David will be off on Wednesday, I want him to cut the overgrowth of the wisteria in the front garden away from the window. It's nice to have the shade but I can barely see out. I also have to have him cut the climbing roses back a little because it's gone crazy and attacking the pecan tree. Well, I have to fold some towels now. The wash is done and I'll just read for my free time. Y'all have a magical day.

I Didn't Feel Like It and a Recipe

I wasn't going to post today. I just didn't feel like it. Yesterday I had a killer headache that I thought would turn into a migraine but I tackled it in its tracks. It's down to a dull thump now. I was also going to do some laundry today instead of tomorrow but I don't feel like it. Yeah, I don't really give a fuck today.
David sent me this weird story about 6 baby squirrels that had their tails stuck together. Apparently, their tails became entangled by tree sap. You have to read the story here. It's strange but it seems to happen now and then. Freaky, huh?
Tonight I'm making a Tex-Mex casserole for David. He loves this one. Preheat oven to 375. In a large **deep skillet, brown 1 pound of very lean ground beef and break it up small with the spoon as it browns. Dice up small 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced small 1/2 cup each red and green bell peppers and add to the ground beef. Salt and pepper to taste. Mix in one package of McCormick Taco Seasoning, 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 cup Kraft Mexican Style Shredded Cheese, 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice, 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, 1 and 1/2 cup frozen corn,  and 1 and 1/2 cups of reduced sodium chicken broth or homemade low sodium chicken broth. mix well and cook while you get a 13x9 inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Spoon into baking dish, cover and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until rice is cooked. Cover with more Kraft Mexican Styled cheese and bake until cheese is melted. Serve with refried beans. This serves 6 people and is great as leftovers.

** I hate using extra dishes when I cook. So, if you want to do as I do and the deep skillet is oven proof or if you use a 4 to 6-inch deep cast iron frying pan and it has no lid, just use foil to cover the pan and bake.
