How do You Like It?

When I first saw the beginning,, I thot,,OMG! 
But,, it kinda grew on me, and by the time all that trim was done, it looks really good.  After all, I used yellow and chartreuse, (the color of bachelor buttons.)
One time, I had those growing at the back, and my  niece walked around the corner, sucked in her breath and went ooooo wow… They had grown window high, and were just beautiful. 
They came back for several years, but finally died out, don’t know why.
I’m wondering now, if the glucosamine sulfate is actually helping my hip and wrist.  I’m almost totally pain free!  I ordered a new supply, just in case…we’ll see.
My blood pressure and sugar have been up, gotta see what’s going on with that.  Don’t want to add that diuretic back, nor take more metformin. 
I saw on one of those morning shows last week, about doing 1 minute of intense exercise per week to put you in shape and lost weight.  They talked about doing 20 seconds at a time, but didn’t get if that was per day, or 3 times a day, 3 times a week.  lol,,, whatever, I’m doing it.  He has a book out,,of course, but,, gonna do it from what I saw on the tv show.
Thot I remembered how Mother made her biscuits.  I swear she said just self rising flour and water…. HA,, that didn’t work.  Asked everybody if they remembered but nope, so I looked it up online and tried one, and it’s ok.  Lots better than what I had done before…lol.  My sister N said reg. flour and baking powder, etc, but I knew that wasn’t the one I remembered.  I’ll try another one next time, see what I come up with.  Anybody know?
Yall tc, and


  1. As I recall, like bout 40 years ago, I used to make the bestest drop biscuits ya ever eat with self riz'n an' some milk. For dumplin's I'm think'n I used water instead of milk.

    I like yeller an' blue....looks good.

    1. i added a little oil, too. Never cook anything with dumplings.
      That color had to grow on me...

  2. My wife says to add a cup of plain yogurt stirred in the mix. She says that is what she does. Just passing it along.

  3. Just last week I experimented making bread with plain ol' self-rising flour. Here's the post:

    My blood sugar hit 350 today and I hadn't eaten anything!! I ended up sleeping it off. When it gets that high, I go out like a light, AND I take shots. Metformin is too weak to do me any good. Tomorrow I'm going to buy BIOTIN and start taking it. Also Omega 3 fish oil. Can't hurt.

    1. Saw that but not just plain biscuits. Thx anyway.
      My BS was that high just once, and i never knew why. I waited it out too. I have type 2.

    2. Lotta Joy was wondering if the biotin and Omega3 fish oil is for your general health or is it for your blood sugar?
