I snapped some of the last zinnias over the weekend. I think they are about finished for the season since it is so dry and I stopped watering them a while back. As of this writing, we've had a little shower but much more is needed.
Hubby took me to the Longhorn Steakhouse yesterday. I had the ribeye on the left and his was, of course, the ribeye with the french fries. We have a little joke in our family about his love for french fries. They are his choice of potato. Always. Anyone see the movie Slingblade? The character, Karl, loved french fries and mustard and Hub can imitate him perfectly saying so with the Uh Hum at the end. You'd have to know the movie for this to make sense. Moving on...I chose the dish in the middle pic in place of a salad. I eat plenty of salad at home, so I chose the brussels sprouts au gratin. It was very good!
We did some other exciting things yesterday like go to Lowe's, Menard's, and Bass Pro. Ha! I did get to run into the Dollar Tree for some silk flowers to add to a fall wreath I'm trying to put together. My fall decorating is coming along slowly. How about yours?
I've had a gift card at the local bookstore that I intended to use on a particular book I've been wanting, but the book wasn't in and so I decided to go with a selection of magazines. I've had such fun looking at these and getting some new ideas. Do you find decorating inspiration from magazines or do the wonderful home and garden blogs give you more ideas? I really love seeing new ways to use things I already have.
Until next time...
