I have Two Guys to wish a Happy Birthday to in August!
My Brother's Birthday was the 21st. I don't have a picture of him to share, but would like to send him a belated wish just the same!
Happy Birthday, Ron!
My step~FIL's birthday is today!
See him grinning below, ...he is always this jolly!
Happy Birthday, Terry!
I was surprised at the response and questions I got about the Boiled Peanuts. Some of you asked what they tasted like. Well, it is really hard to say. I can't think of what they would compare to. But I have found, that you either love or hate them! LOL!
My brother had a suite mate in college that was from up north. We introduced him to the fine Southern Cuisine of Boiled Peanuts, and he loved them! ...Couldn't get enough of them! However, my SIL, Tiffany, is from Ohio, and still hasn't acquired a taste for them! This is actually the only kind of peanuts I like.
Boiled peanuts come from raw or "green" peanuts fresh out of the ground, before they start to dry. You boil them in very salty water for about 1 1/2 hours.
They are of course seasonal, and this time of year, it's not uncommon to find a gathering of folks around a huge metal pot, making a meal out of them! Now that is good eating! :)
Yesterday, Brenda, from the Brenda Blog, hosted an event to share where your blogs are created. I am a day late, so I missed out. But I decided to post my blogging spaces anyway! :)
So here we are in my husband's home office. I have taken over his desk, and this is where I "create" my posts. I download the pictures and graphics to this computer.
Kevin's precision tractor and truck collection.
Vintage tractor catalogs are stashed all over this room. The old receipt beside the book is kept under the desk glass. It was found in the farm house when we were tearing out a wall, and first began the renovations. It is dated 1954, and a receipt for $25.00 that Kevin's grandaddy paid on his account at the local general store.
My african violet is just full of delicate flowers!
The office is considered part of the "Master Suite," and the spiral stairs ascend to the Master bedroom. I painted the railings after Christmas last year, and they were suppose to be a bronze color, but they ended up an army green. After a slightly difficult project, I am learning to live with the color! LOL!
When I am just browsing and leaving comments on everyone's blogs, this is where I am. In one of the comfy recliner's with the laptop.
Hope you have enjoyed your tour of my blogging spaces. I have a few awards to post, but I will save them for tomorrow....since this post is getting a little long! :)
Hope your week is off to a great start! ~Rhonda
