Mrs. Jim's Lucky Day -- Ruby (Red) Tuesday --
This in a way isn't good luck. Mrs. Jim has nice friends. Her friend, "Mrs. L", gave her this lovely sack of Louisiana long grain rice that she brought back from her recent visit to the East.
Of course she stopped in at her home town, Crowley, Louisiana, to buy rice for herself and Mrs. Jim. and to see family friends and relatives for a bit. Most every time she goes back to her home town she get more rice. Louisiana people eat a lot of rice. Mrs. Jim did also when she was growing up in Louisiana, her birth state.
Mrs. Jim loves to cook so "Mrs. L" also got her this nice cookbook. Mrs. Jim already has chosen several of those Louisiana recipes from this Southern Cookbook.
Click here to see a lovely basket that she gave Mrs. Jim one other time.
On the left is the door prize Mrs. Jim got at the subdivision Ladies Organization today. One of the ladies who does pet sitting donated a one day's pet sitting. Now all we need to do is find some place we can go off to. Then the dogs can get sat.
On the right is her favorite magazine. Mrs. Jim is a gourmet cook in my opinion. She really cooks good when the occasion arises. We do not eat gourmet everyday.
If she hasn't gotten here November issue, then this October one may be the last. The company who publishes Gourmet has filed bankruptcy. We are hoping that means they do like General Motors and keep on printing.
Her "Grandma P" got her this little swing.
Baby KP likes it so much that every time she sits in it and swings just a little bit she goes to sleep. That is relaxation!
Please note the pink dress and the little bit of red on the swing toys. I did want you to believe that this picture belongs to the Ruby (Red) Tuesday meme.
I have to say I remember candy apples from the carnival when I was growing up and this pic has my mouth watering. :)
Baby Kp is such a cutie. I do envy all the time you get to spend with her. Lily and now Lucy love that swing. When Lily was little I used to wish they had an adult version!
Mrs. Jim has nice friends and and an even nicer hubby!
Hugs and blessings,
The grandbaby is adorable and I can tell you aren't spoiling her one bit.
Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)
I enjoyed all of these tidbits and I particularly enjoy hearing how much you love Mrs. Jim and her friends appreciate her. Delightful Ruby Red apple!
Thanks for stopping by. I so enjoy your sense of humor in my comments. I am living up to my renewed goal of posting MUCH more often again, like I used. There's a new post up.
Have a great Tuesday.
Yeah, I'm sorry to hear about Gourmet, my grandma used to get it. I heard an interview with the editor. It doesn't sound like they plan to keep printing.
Please take a peek on my first Ruby Tuesday entry. Seeyah!
Big hug. :)
Happy RT, mine is here!
the gourmet magazine is a beauty!
and the nicest bit of red in that picture of kp is her ruby red lips!
hope you had a happy ruby tuesday...love terry
