  1. I just had to drop by and repeat Roy's comment on animals in the house, bed, whatever. His comment was 'What if Mary had taken one look at the manger and said 'I'm not laying down there with animals!'?

    Ceedie Hotel

    A once stylish, now slightly rundown hotel. RGT Franklin Street kit.
  3. Not the same chow chow we have down here, isn't that odd? Ours is mostly green tomatoes. My grandmother made it all the time and her family was from N Carolina! Maybe she learned it after she moved to Texas. It did have some cabbage in it, but mainly green tomatoes, peppers, and onions. And it isn't soaked in brine, just boiled and sealed in hot mason jars. it's all the bell peppers that make it sweet, I think.
  4. I've seen her, she's gorgeous! A perfect British matron. Got the second floor primed, the hallway floored and papered, and started on the door in the dividing wall. That's it for now-back to work tomorrow!
  5. Down here, what we consider chow chow is chopped green tomatoes with onion and some pepper, a mild version of a green picante sauce. Tamales are more involved. you cook your ground meat, usually pork or beef.. Then you take the meat drippings and mix with masa flour, oil, seasonings, etc, and spread the mix over a steamed until soft corn shuck. Then you put a spoonful of meat on it, roll it up, and steam the wrapped tamale. They are loads of work to make, and fantastic to eat!
  6. You can get a laptop for 500 or less, nowadays. Small screens but larger than a phone and would do what you need. I would never have a PC again, spoiled to laptops!
  7. Pretty day here, today. Not too cold, bright and sunny! This is our last day off, so Colten is here with me. I ought to be doing the last of my chores, but I'm not. Mini a bit, play with legos a bit. I've got to go to the bank and to Home Depot to pick up some more paint this afternoon. Then I'll have to do nails, pluck eyebrows, clean the paint off my elbows and behind my ears, and get ready for the routine to begin again!
  8. No school today, so Colten and I are playing. He's been drawing and playing with legos. I am working on the second floor. Since hallways are so narrow, I just floored up to the line where the wall will fit, primed the walls, and am making the landing rails. When the space is papered, trimmed, and finished up to that line, I'll do that wall, door and all, and then install it. that gives so much more room to get around and do things! Then I will do the hotel room on the other side of the wall. Once the walls are up, only skinny dolls can get down that hall!
  9. Sorry you're feeling so bad, Jeremy! I know what that's like. With all the dust and wind here this winter, my asthma stays bad most of the time. When the wind blows, I keep my inhaler close! Jerri, There are several Rosa's, now. And they are always crowded! The bottom floor of the hotel is pretty much done now. I am going to prime the second floor today and start laying flooring there.
  10. I adore tamales! Now, you don't have to go to the 'factory' to get Pedro's tamales. They sell them at United! where I used to work, one lady made them every week and we could order what we wanted from her. That was great, other than having to sit an smell them in our desk all afternoon! A lot of people eat tamales at Christmas, but I was not brought up in that tradition. We did take the entire family out to eat at Rosa's this week, though! Soooo good, and their tamales are almost as good as Pedro's!
  11. There are tactful ways of saying you don't like something, without making other people feel that you think they are inferior- not as clean, talented, or not as smart, etc. Sometimes we get so fired up about a subject that we forget our manners. Understandable but something we should keep in mind.

    Paneling is done

    We have starting aging, yet! Give it time..lol!
  13. Out here it's cabbage that you eat. I steam mine until just tender, with bacon and jalapenos. And Holly, try your black eyed peas with bacon or ham, onions, jalapenos, and tabasco sauce. The instructions on the bag will say to soak overnight and then cook about 2 hrs, but I boil for a bit, and then cook all day, just like I was doing a pot of pintos. They are much more tender. Today is my last day of true freedom. We don't have school tomorrow, but I do have Colten. So I intend to play all day. Not even church, since they are not having the early service we usually attend. Mini awhile, go to

    You're right, Lyssa. I know it will, but it sure looks blah right now!
