The Prince Pulls a Stunt!

Well, Mr. Eddie Dale decided to take a little field trip today while I was at the office. 

He gathered up some items that needed to go to the post office....and then he just up and took 'em!  Even though we had talked about him not driving for a bit longer, he got in his big honkin' truck and drove to the post office.  The stinker...

The one-armed wonder - in Wranglers and boots for the first time - 9 days after surgery

I don't know whether to hide his keys tomorrow......or let him get out of the house and terrorize the streets with his good (or should I say dominant?) arm strapped to his body in a super-sling!

I guess we will just have to chalk this up to "healing".   Each day is a bit better.  His therapist is able to stretch his shoulder and arm a little farther at each P/T session.  He is now showering, dressing and shaving all by himself.  He wrote some "thank you" notes to friends with his left hand and they were incredibly legible.   He has even been doing a little cooking in the kitchen, with my help around fire, hot water and knives. 

Before you know it, he won't even NEED me!!!  I'm feeling a bit like a momma bird whose baby is about to spread its wings and fly.....

And I couldn't be more proud of his progress!  

Hats off to my Prince....



  1. Just goes to show that you can't keep a good man down!

    Good to see he's healing quickly!

  2. Awwww, he is a prince. Look at him go and trying to help out.

    Glad to hear that he's progressing so well.

  3. He is a go getter!!! Way to go Mr. Eddie Dale!!! Don't rush it though and hurt yourself! Continued prayers for quick recovery!

Loving Our New Woven Blinds......

Hey, ya'll!  Labor Day weekend is winding down.....hope yours has been great!!!
Mine was actually pretty busy.  Since Eddie Dale had to work all three days, I decided I would work, too - only I stuck around the house to do my work! 
I decided to go ahead and give the woven bamboo blinds I found at Home Depot a shot.  I've been eyeballing them online for weeks because the cost was only $16.97 each.  I simply hate the plastic 1-inch mini-blinds throughout our house - they are not cottage-y - at all! 
So, I ran out to the local store (their handy dandy website indicated they had thirteen 27"x72" shades in stock) and picked up enough to do the living room.  I really like the roman shade style and the way these filter the light, creating a nice soft ambiance in the room.  Although they are not completely private, they are fine in the living area.  Oh, and did I mention they are only $16.97 a window?!?!?  So reasonable, yet they give me the "look" I've been…

Super Bowl Sunday - What's for Supper!?!?!?

One of our favorite things to do when there's a big game on TV is make up a variety of "finger foods" to snack on during the evening.  Tonight's Super Bowl was no different and we went for some of our favorites - buffalo wings, sausage balls, pigs-in-a-blanket, and, of course, one of our old standbys,  this yummy spinach dip.

It's a tradition to have this creamy dip at least once during the holidays, but we rarely have it during the year.  So, it's a real treat!  It's delicious and rich; and the basic recipe makes a ton - we snack on it for days!  My favorite way to enjoy it - scoop it up with "hint of salt" wheat thins crackers.  Yum yum!!!
Most of you probably have this recipe down by memory.  But, in case you haven't tried it, I'm sharing it below.

Procrastinating on a Project

Sitting here, listening to the thunder and the pounding rain against the windows and wishing I had made good on my plans to clean out my closet today.

You see, I've been contemplating emptying my closet for months.  And I mean empty it completely!  Then reload with way fewer items.  Some call it a capsule wardrobe - that is a pretty popular term these days.  Others might say it a 'minimalist approach' to dressing.  Either way, it is something that has been wiggling around in my mind for some time. 

And yet, I continue to put the project off.  Why the blazes is that?  It's definitely something I want to do - downsize and simplify my wardrobe! 

The main reason is the sheer size of the project.  It is daunting, to say the least.  Perhaps even overwhelming.  I know it is probably going to take several hours and create a huge mess if I do it properly.  So, I start thinking about the process and begin to lose sight of the end result - which is a simpler wardrobe and less …
