THIS AND THAT THURSDAY

No, I'm not on a padded motorcycle!  HaHa.  I'm down in the clubhouse getting ready for a free massage provided by CareMore Medical for the residents of Villa Ramona.  They come once a month, and you get a 15 minute deep massage of your neck, shoulders and back.  That tight knot that I feel on my upper back was completely rubbed out.  Oh what a relief it is!


Received the sweetest package and thank you note today from the Kitty in Texas.  She was the person in the Tea Cup Exchange I had the fun of sending a tea cup to and some other little tea items.
With her lovely note, she sent me several kinds of tea to try and a pretty pink crocheted dish cloth.  

One of my new favorite snacks is tuna filled baby peppers.  I get a bag at Costco of red, yellow and orange.  Cut the top off take out the seeds and fill with tuna.  Healthy too.


Not so healthy, but really good is the crispy strips I made with some leftover pie crust.  Was perfect this afternoon with a cup of coffee.  
Speaking of coffee ~ I found another creamer that really hit the spot.  Italian Style Sweet Cream.  Makes coffee a dessert.


Love our little Coffee Station on our antique Tea Cart.  Found the perfect place for it.  I always make the coffee the night before so all we do is get up and turn it on in the morning.


This was our sunset tonight!  It's been a really nice day!

    1. Isn't that the cutest. Jill gave it to me. It was Jaya's grandmothers, and when she passed it was given to Jill and she wanted me to have it. I love it dearly and her for sharing it with me. She knew I had always wanted one.

    1. Linda, it happened by accident. I had a spoon of tuna salad left, and had a pepper in my hand ready to bite off the end, and walla....the idea came to put the tuna in the pepper. it tasted SO good, I decided that was a super idea.

    1. Suza, These are the sweetest small red, yellow and orange peppers. I have been eating them plain as a knack, but as I mentioned to Linda...had the last spoon of tuna salad in one hand and a pepper in the other...and "idea" put them together. HaHa. New snack.

    1. I told my dearest this morning on our walk with Molly, I think the verse "Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart." 50 years in ministry had it's share of sacrifices, and I think God is honoring our faithfulness with the perks of living where we do.

  5. Now, that monthly massage is what I call a nice perk!! How wonderful to have the knot in your upper back relieved! Thank you for sharing the idea of the tuna salad in those mini peppers. I love those little things! I just grab one out of the fridge and bite into it. ;) Your coffee station is perfect, Wanda... I can smell it brewing. blessings and hugs ~ tanna

    1. I do the same thing...grab one and bite into to a cold crisp crunch of good. The tuna added a touch that would be cute appetizers.

    1. I too love my cart, A gift from my daughter. Her husband's grandma passed and it was given to them and Jill knew how much I love that kind of thing, and gifted it on to me.

  10. I should try stuffing those little peppers. Usually I stuff them into my mouth, but having them full of something tasty would be more fun. (Sofie likes them too.)

    1. Molly is a snob.....turns her nose up at veggies unless they are cooked soft...haha. I love those peppers.

  11. We buy those mini peppers, too! So tasty and convenient! I'll have to stuff them with some tuna...what a great idea!

    I shop at Kroger, so I'm going to look for that creamer. I've been on a hazelnut kick for a while. Time to try something different!

    I envy that massage...how wonderful! I need one. I was at the orthodontist today and they were commenting on how tight my jaw is. Of course this is no news to me. I need to figure out a solution. Maybe a face massage once a week? ha. Sounds good to me!

    1. We have a big Food-4-Less store that carries a lot of Kroger brands. That's where I found the cream...right next to the Hazelnut. Your poor jaw...wish he could have worked on you yesterday.

      Would a face massage be something the Mister would be interested in doing....????

  12. Dear Wanda, You look so pretty and happy waiting for your massage. Glad it made you feel better.
    The tuna/bell pepper is a healthy and tasty snack.
    Some of the coffee creamers do make the coffee so tasty and like a dessert.
    Take care and blessings, Catherine

  13. You know, I make for a great husband and dad. Hate to get massages but LOVE to give them. I especially am good with feet! :) Every night I would massage my mother's feet and back from about 9 to 19!
