It Has Been A Perfect P.J. Day

Yes, for real.  A perfect p.j. day for this lucky lady.  Where can you go in your p.j.'s early in the morning and feel right at home and comfy??? To your daughter's of course.  And that is just what I did in the early morning hours this Wednesday.  Why?? Well,, the reason is not such a good one.  No, they were fine, no one sick , well not a person.  But my poor Saturn VUE is very sick.  It has to go to the hospital mechanic for a lengthy stay. Got to have it's transmission replaced.  Yikes!! Not much prim shopping in my future for awhile. Oh  but I miss my ride .  You all know how Holly and I love to go.  So..... that is why I got out so early this morning.  MR. P. delivered me to Holly's door before daylight on his was to work this morning.  I have to admit it has been quite a while since I have seen this time of the day.  Fog was so heavy, you could barely see.  I even commented I didn't know what our neighborhood looked like this early in the morning.  Was a nice ride in with the mister. .

Got to be at Holly's when Darbee Rae woke and got her gift from the tooth fairy for the first time. Saw her off to school. Got some good loving in too.  Holly brought us back a biscuit and we sat leisurely and chatted while she drank Coke and I had my coffee.  We looked on our computers, and then I got busy stitching and she made the goodie bags for Darbee Rae's "Country Hoedown" Birthday party this weekend.  I think they turned out too cute, don't you?  Hobo bags will go with the theme just perfect.

Still in my p.j.'s we had this for lunch after Darbee was home from school.
After helping Darbee Rae with her homework, and playing "school" for a bit, we are settled down again in front of this
Are you envious of my day yet??  Yes it has been so nice, and I have been spoiled. Mr. P is coming by after work and she has prepared supper for us.  The house smells so yummy. We are having homemade chicken pot pie.
Then we are all off to watch Darbee Rae play T-ball.   I will exchange my P.J.'s for clothes before we head out the door. {smile} Yes, it has been a fun filled day.  In fact October has been such a busy and fun month so far.  On the 4th  we celebrated my birthday and the birthday of Kathy's youngest son.  He turned 21!!!  Tyler is 9 years younger than Holly but we took him on many trips with us to the Casinos when he and Holly were too young to go inside.  They kept each other company in the game rooms.  Since he was a wee boy, I had promised on his 21st birthday to go to the Casino. 
We all had saved just a little tad of money to go have fun.  Took us longer to drive to the neighboring state to the Casino than we were there.  Those machines took our money in no time.  Did they not know it was our birthday and could have been kind to us??
We left and had a wonderful dinner at Country's BBQ where we had a great time and the food was delicious.
Happy Birthday yet again Tyler.  You have come a long way since entering this world weighing in at 1 pound.  We love you!!
Holly and family came out when we got home and brought presents.  Of course Darbee Rae was so excited.  She loves making a big deal on everyone's birthday.  She had drawn me a cake at school and said she spread chocolate icing on it and added candles.
Then she hands me another picture.  She said it was a picture of me and one of her. 
She of course had the pigtails.  She informed me I had black hair and she added  a little silver on each side.!!!!!  Guess she was telling me it was past time for a color job, huh?
Here at the homeplace we have been preparing for winter.  Mr. P has been cutting and splitting wood.  This year he has a good helper. 
We haven't had our first fire yet, but don't think it will be long.  We have plenty of seasoned wood just waiting for those cold winter days.
And what better way to welcome cool weather and fall than with a Carmel Cake.  This has become a favorite of mine.  Love this never failing recipe.  Betty at Through my Back Door shared it with me a long time ago.  She posted the recipe of her last post on her blog.  http://bettyjcrowe-throughmybackdoor.blogspot.com/  Stop by and check out the recipe.  You won't be sorry.
Well my friends this has been scattered, but now you know what has been going on in and around the homeplace.  I know you were suppose to visit me in the kitchen and I promise next post we will.  Until the VUE gets out of the car hospital , I will not be on schedule.  If someone comes by and honks the horn, out the door I will be.  So until next time, take some time for yourself.  Hope you can enjoy a P.J. day with someone you love soon.
