The Bulletin Board pictured above is hanging in our Hallway.  I put it there when we bought our house, and moved in.  Nothing ever seems to get taken off of it although for some reason we keep cramming things into it through these years.  I have no desire to remove any photo or tiny scrap of paper. 

As cluttered and as tacky as it all may be, that Bulletin Board in a nutshell, is ME!

Hello and Welcome to our Current Website Events

We actually have a few Bulletin Boards around our house. 

These 2 are in mine, and Gordon’s Bedroom.

(Rachel Ashwell’s Books and DVD’s are Favorites of Mine.)

This Bulletin Board is to the right in the photo above. 

—————————————————————

Our Microwave/Our Bulletin Board

I get asked a lot about what post or page that I am working on currently.  We do have a very large website and in addition to creating new posts, I also tend to update old ones.  So, I decided to create a post letting our reader’s know what is current, and has new content.  Not that any of the above mentioned “Bulletin Boards” helps to keep us organized.  But they are kinda fun!  🙂

We do appreciate your interest in us and our website and you are always welcomed here.

Kind Regards,

Julie and Gordon

Happy Birthday Brodie Rondo Keith

This is my great-uncle Brodie who died at 11 months old from Diptheria.  I named my son after him.  I always like to remember him because he really didn’t live long enough for anyone to know him.

New Year’s Day

We made it to 2021. 

That is very lucky considering everything that is going on right now in our country and the world. 

In the south we celebrate New Year’s Day with a Linner, my word for Lunch and Dinner combined, which consists of any version of Black Eyed Peas to bring us luck, and any version of Collard Greens to bring us money, Cornbread (Duh!), and any kind of meat such as Keilbasa in a Hoppin’ John, leftover Christmas Ham, or in our case, fried SPAM!  🙂

Cornbread with Onions, Cottage Cheese, and Broccoli

Oh, and everything is usually eaten in a few bowls.

My pathetic fire works display.  I actually think that it is very representative of the new year to come.  Some sparkler’s would never work, some fizzled out quickly, and some only blew smoke my way.  But there was one that did it’s best to shine brightly.  I guess that’s called hope.

2021, we have no where to go but up!

(Actually, that’s not quite true.  Things can always get worse.  I’m not a downer, I’m a realist.)

DECEMBER, 2020

Because of our home renovations I cannot photograph a December Calendar to start out this December month. 

  But I can write in the important dates of this month.  And I will.  Stay tuned for updates.

I Found the Calendar!

Sadly, there is really nothing going on for us this month other than our home renovations.

December 31, 2020

New Year’s Eve

Frozen Margarita’s and Pork Rhine’s

Because we still have boxes everywhere from our renovations and just us trying to get things back in order, we didn’t want to do a lot of cooking so we made things nice and light and easy. 

NACHOS!

And other things that I am just to tired to mention right now.  🙂 

Hey, we have been working hard trying to put things back in order.

Gordon’s Brother Jeff turns 60!

Therefore, we sent him a $60.00 gift card to use at his favorite restaurant HOOTER’S.  (Of course.)

P.S.  On a past visit Jeff once bought me a Hooter’s t-shirt and told me to wear it one morning and bring him breakfast in bed.  Yea, right!  (What do YOU think I did?)

Gordon, Julie and Jeff 1985 Charlotte, North Carolina

Jeff’s Chevy Nova

You can’t talk about Jeff without acknowledging his car.  It’s a classic.  He just did sent Gordon this latest photo of it.  He’s had it forever.  But, if you think about it, he being a car mechanic he is able to fix it and work on it without being beholden to some dealership where cars are now computerized where we are beholden to the dealership to fix them for us.  Computer chips embedded in our automobiles that decide when we need oil changes, tire changes, and regular maintenance.  That’s one reason why I like my 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe.  🙂  I’ve got my boy Brodie to work on my car so that I am not beholden to some dealership.

Happy Birthday Brodie!

28 Today!

Brodie and Mackenzie Babysitting Loki

Brodie and Mackenzie are very often babysitters of this dog, Loki, and they will spend anywhere from a weekend to 2 weeks doing so.  And whenever they do they take advantage of the lake they live on and do some kayaking.  But they also do some grilling.  Here are some of the foods that we sent over to Mackenzie’s parents as a thank you for hosting Brodie for a few months while he and Mackenzie find a place to live starting next year.

When we were hosting Mackenzie during the lockdown, her parents were very generous to send us all a cooler full of foods.  Steaks, potatoes, lots of red meat stuff that I don’t eat so I can’t even name the kinds of red meat foods but, Gordon, Brodie and Mackenzie loved them all and that is all that matters.  🙂  And I did so love the fancy baked potatoes.

So, when Brodie and Mackenzie were dog sitting Loki they took over the hamburgers and hot dogs that we had sent over in the food cooler, to grill out. 

It makes me happy that they enjoyed them so much.

Although we have something nice for Brodie this year, we can never go wrong by giving him food.  🙂

I wrapped Brodie’s nice Rice Cooker and he gets a big bag of Basmati Rice and a bottle of Kraken Rum. 

I went shopping in our bathtub for the rum.  Only those that read my blogs will understand that statement.  🙂

So, happy birthday to my baby boy Brodie!

Love, Mom and Dad

Patriot’s Day

I suppose that Patriot’s Day was created in honor of 9/11.  It’s interesting that we’ve been living a 9/11 over and over again since February but having an invisible threat that kills people just doesn’t seem to upset the population as much as airplane’s full of Arabs do.

Another misconception of a lot of American’s is that the person who flies the biggest flag is somehow more patriotic than another who doesn’t.  Some people just wear their patriotism on the inside.  They don’t feel the need to flaunt it.  I realize that on some of our July 4th. posts that we go all out with the Americana.  That is because some of our posts are parody, and parody is just an exaggeration.  The real Julie and Gordon are more reserved when it comes to pledging our allegiance to the flag of the United States of America.  But on that note we do acknowledge Patriot’s Day on this September 11, 2020.

AND,

I also added something to my:

Julie Vintage and Treasure Hunting Continues

I also have a very fun project that I will get to soon that I want to add to this post as well where I am going to turn one of my vintage suitcases into a jewelry box.

I miss working on projects.  We’ve been doing so much food lately that I want to get back to some of my crafts.  I miss working on them.

Happy Birthday Brian!

Our son-in-law’s birthday is today.  We really couldn’t think of anything that he would want so I wrote our daughter Veronica and asked what foods she and Brian would like, and she told me Rib Eye Steaks.  O.K.  We then took it from there and created an entire dinner with the works!  It was fun! 

4 Rib Eye Steaks, Idaho Potatoes, Texas Toast, Baguette, Dozen Eggs, Red Grape Tomatoes, Multi-Colored Heirloom Mini-Tomatoes, Purple Lettuce, Green Lettuce, Shredded Carrots, Bell Peppers, Lots of Corn-on-Cob, Blue Corn Chips, Blue Crab Salsa, Our Dill Pickles, Bag of Onions, Some Russian Tea, Bag of Gummy Sharks, Pecan Pie, Butter Pecan Ice Cream…..

We were thinking, Salad, Dinner, and Birthday Dessert. 

With Leftovers…

Happy Birthday Kona!

Kona was our very first dog as a family.  I grew up with lots of dogs, usually entire packs, but as a family we have not had that many dogs.  Kona, our Black Lab was given to Brodie for his 8th. birthday from my parents when we were living in Maryland.  Kona grew to be about 142 pounds.  He was so tall and big and loyal and sweet.  He loved us very much and we have never forgotten him.  He died years ago.  Thank you Kona for being such a good dog and being such a great member of our family.  We will miss you forever.  Kona was born August 28, 2000, so was our niece Kate Jude.

Happy Birthday Kate!  Look out for her to be something great.  I promise it!

My style is to create something nice and then stick a toy in the photo and make it fun.  🙂

—————————————————–

I did try and revamp my:

Sand Globes

This is one of my first blog posts when I started my website and it has been hacked and disfigured so many times prior to my finally being able to have good security on my website.  I have tried to fix it.  But, it will take a total redoing to make it look as good as it needs to be.  That will come much later.  But for now, here it is.  Safe.  I assure you.

Happy 33rd. Birthday to our Daughter, Veronica!

In addition to her regular birthday gifts, I wanted to pass along some things to her from when she was a baby for her to keep forever.  For example the framed photograph of the 3 of us in our backyard in Honolulu, Hawaii.  Some delicious Hawaiian Host chocolates that we love so much.  And her silver baby cup and two baby spoons.  It took us forever to clean that silver cup.  🙂

Sadly, because we are still in lockdown we just drive things over to their house and leave them outside their front door.  We do long for the day when we can safely see each other again.

July 6, 2020 is also the anniversary of our website debut.  I do have something fun planned to commemorate it but it’s taking longer than I thought it would to get together.  But, I’m working on it.  🙂  Happy 9 years to us!

Our 35th. Wedding Anniversary

I came across this needlepoint which I think was done by my old friend Judy from Sevierville.  I had forgotten all about it.  It is very beautiful.  She took the time to make it.  No one does that nowadays.  No one bothers.

35 years.  So hard to believe that we have been married for so long.  Just yesterday we were young but not anymore.  🙂  Gordon is preparing a nice meal for us, and for Brodie and Mackenzie.  I’ll bring it to you soon.

Oh, and I created a new post today:

Happy Easter!

Nellie Mae Keith Haskin

Today is my deceased Grandmother’s birthday.  She always loved it when her birthday fell on Easter Sunday.  I wish she were still here with us but I never forget her and in fact I based our Easter this year on all those happy Easter’s that I had growing up with her and my Grandfather and Great-Grandparents in Rome, Georgia.  I also based our Easter on a favorite restaurant in Dahlonega, Georgia where we lived for a few years in my youth.  The restaurant was called The Smith House.  I created a new post based on our Easter and I cannot wait to do the write ups, but if you know me then you know I will get around to it eventually.

From The Smith House to the Whann House, Easter

——————————————————-

I also updated the home page with some new current posts.  Some need some work from when they were switched over from the old website to the new one.  I will get around to those this month as well as working on some new posts.

I hope that everyone has a nice day,

Julie

Whenever Brodie walks by I call him over to ask him what they did here in this photo, and how much olive oil was used in this other photo?  Brodie is more like a Gordon Ramsey, he just wants to make and create and not write anything down or pose for photos.  Just capture him while he’s in his element.  Yeah, right!  🙂

I have spent the past few hours updating my home page with some Spring and Easter posts.  Some of them I need to tweak and update.  When I transferred my website over to a new format last year some of the colors of the posts are just too light to read properly so I need to fix those.  There is always something!  🙁

But, I do the best that I can given that most of the time I am a one woman team. 

And in my case there is an “I” in Team.

Nice weekend ahead for us.  Looking forward to it!  🙂

I just did finish…….

Click Here For:  Weeki Wachee Weekend for Christmas

Granted, I probably need to look for spelling errors and Gordon does have a fritter recipe to write up but other than that it is finished.

I have also been noticing that so many of my blogs that originally had photo backgrounds need to be reworked.  When my guys in India redid my website and removed all those background photos I had a lot of light colored printing on each page which now is very hard to read on a white background.  It’s such a pain but I have been spending a bit of time trying to change the coloring so that it can be read more easily.  I have so many posts on my website that there are probably many that I need to fix but I do the best that I can. 

I now want to work on updating some already existing blog posts and then I will probably tackle a big one.  I’ll let you know what all I have done and what I am working on.  Just keep tuning in here.

I also just redid my Homepage of my Website with new content and even updated some blog post photo sliders:

I realize this blog post wording kind of reminds me of some fake psychic, but I had to fill a line with text and that is what came to mind…..  Oh, well?  I don’t mean for it to sound commercial, but it kind of does.  Yet, oddly enough it does fit.  So, why not?

We had a nice New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day.  Same old foods.  Nothing really new.  Gordon had been gone for 15 months and all he wanted was his old favorites, which I happily obliged. 

Fill you in soon,

I also changed the name of it as I only want to add the “fancy” extras here and not the casual ones.

I also added a few photos to my very old post, Casual Christmas Touches.  I’ll have to revamp that one eventually.  I still want it nice and small and tidy but it does need a few new things that I will eventually get around to adding.

We did NOT do any pickling today because Gordon had a migraine.  But, we do want to pickle the Brussel Sprouts and the Pearl Onions that we roasted the other day, (my idea to roast them.)  🙂

At this writing we aren’t planning some special New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day anything.  We just want to finish up what we have going on right now and then clean up and pack away.  And besides, we are kind of sick of all this food!

But we are planning a Kayak Adventure with our kids and their partners.  And Gordon and I are planning our Honeycation to take place without your knowing it.  🙂

Have a nice evening,

Julie

We will be doing more pickling this weekend and I want to revamp a Star Wars post of mine and add more content to it.  I’ll bring that to you once it’s created.
