Random thoughts on a Saturday morning

Saturday mornings are my time to unwind from a fast paced work week.  I love my job, but it requires a lot of physical and mental energy, not to mention more patience and tenacity than it took to raise my twin sons to adulthood!  There are times I really want to bring a playpen to work and put one or two individuals in it.

I buy my meat from a grass-fed farm over in central New York.  On the last Friday of the month, they make the trip to Rochester with a van loaded down with orders from customers.  This time I ordered a large roast that will be cooked in my camp dutch oven, along with carrots and potatoes, at our annual cousins reunion coming up very soon in Alabama.  The rest of my order was made up of good stuff to cook on the grill, baby back ribs, hamburgers, strip steaks, and chicken.  Cooking on the grill is one of my favorite warm weather things to do.  I encourage you to google the benefits of grass-fed meat and find a local farmer in your area.

No, I did not buy a mega millions jackpot ticket.  Did you?  As crazy as my life can be sometimes, I don't need that kind of money to make it even crazier.

The rest of my day will be busy with the usual, mundane Saturday Stuff To Do. . . laundry, cleaning, errands.  But for now, I'm enjoying reading the blogs I follow and waiting for that second pot of coffee to be ready!  Have a great weekend, folks.


  1. Ah, yes, our resident lottery ticket buyer made sure we had a ticket for the family. That buyer is, of course, our daughter, Catherine.

    I think I will recommend that playpen-at-work idea to someone near and dear. ;) I think he will like it!

    Sunday hugs,

  2. Hi Sherry!
    I have a cast iron dutch oven that I have never used--your roast sounds good. No, we are not millionaires either and didn't have a chance because we didn't buy tickets. I am content with our blessings.

  3. Oh, Marie! You have a cast iron dutch oven that you have never used. Shame on you. My "camp dutch oven" is for use outdoors. You put charcoal briquettes (after they are hot) underneath and on top of the oven. It has three legs on the bottom to allow air to pass through. Learn how to use it - it is very simple - and you'll be glad you did.

  4. We grill out all year long...try to avoid the windiest times though. A hamburger from the grill is as good as any steak one could buy.
