On cooking....

I went to see "Julie and Julia" the other day and it was such a sweet and funny movie. I may have to buy the DVD on this one!

What fun it would be to do that, although I dont think I am up to Julia Child...anyway, its been done. However, I do have a LOT of cookbooks. So here is what I decided to do. My younger daughter and her friends want to cook. They want to, they just dont know how. So we are going to have cooking school at my house once or twice a month, and I am going to document it and post it to this blog.

Stranger things have probably never happened....stay tuned!

Outdoor Wednesday

Here is my contribution to Outdoor Wednesday. Link here for others:

We went on a little drive this weekend, checking out the place where we are planning our wedding, and stopped at this little country cemetery, because it is so pretty and interesting. It is called Crosses Creek Cemetery, and I think one of my friend's family is buried here.

It has a small, neat chapel....

A lot of the graves are marked with rocks, no names.

It has tables I think they use for decoration day most likely,

And an outhouse.
Did I mention it is in Madison County?

Nice gestures

On Monday I received a nice surprise from one of our graduate students - flowers! In appreciation for helping her. Sometimes they mention me in their dedications, but I think these are the first flowers I have gotten. Really brightened up my day....

It has some lovely full size roses
Some tea size roses and some Zinnias.
And it came in a mug with seashells on that beach stuff! What a great girl, and her husband picked it out. While he was at it, he sent her roses. He is very well trained for an engineer....
