OMG! I forgot to blog...I get so entranced with others blogs I forget my own!

Remember the other day when I said I was going to Wal-Mart?  Well, I didn't, but I did go yesterday and got a few magazines and one came in the mail!  Just in time for the weekend and "kickin' back"....yeah right...I'm retired...every day is the weekend! LOL!  But you do have to be a little self-disciplined in order to stay on top of things.  Retirement isn't all it's cracked up to be....all that FREE time?  You end up spending catching up on all the sleep you DIDN'T get for the last 60+ years, you can't eat anything yummy and you must exercise constantly or you'll drop dead or is it the other way around?  Anyway, for those of you who are not retired, I just don't want you to think it's all fun and games.'s those magazines I picked up......all good ones too!

Why did I stop subscribing to this?  I always buy it when I see it at the store....DUH!

They stopped publishing this magazine which I adored but this is a special decorating issue.  I'm hoping they're testing the waters and going to make a comeback.

This is a special Teatime edition of Victoria magazine.  It's all full of tea and crumpets and scones!  Yummmm...I think I'll be baking this week!

This is my subscription to Mary Jane's Farm magazine which I could never be without.  Look at her....the woman never jowls, no chicken skin on the neck....what's up with's just not natural.
Okay, so you can see how my weekend is going to be is beautiful and I have clothes hanging outside in the Spring breeze but tomorrow is a different story...cold, rainy, windy which means my corned beef and cabbage will be simmering on the stove all day, there'll be a fire in the fireplace to chase the cold and damp away and I'll be "crafting" and reading those magazines and having a cozy Sunday!  I wish you a joy filled weekend!


  1. Sam
    It sounds like a perfect way to spend a Saturday!
    I just checked the mag rack yesterday, but there wasn't a 'Mary Jane' of 'Country Home'!

  2. Me and my daughter were looking at mags today at Wally world. Cottage living I think it was -$9.95- are you kidding me? Can you say library?
    Read'em and send'em back.
    I love your weekend plans! What time will lunch be ready tomorrow? :)

  3. Hi Sam, Thanks for the visit and nice to meet you. I will be keeping in touch its great to meet new readers.

  4. Oh my gosh! I love your furbabies. Nitty and Annie! They are so cute. Are they still holding doggy daycare against you Ha! We can't any good magazines in this country. I used to get a lot of the British ones because they were cheaper, but now can't find anything. I have one or two Mary Jane's Farm and really love them. Hope you are having a great day. It's about time for me to hit the hay. Best wishes, Tammy
