As you all know Halloween is not my favorite Holiday! The party for Trick or Treat is at the Church tonight. The children were so excited last night I could barely get them settled! Alls well that ends well. I will let you know how it goes!

A very Special HAPPY****BIRTHDAY****TO***DEBBIE SPIVEY Today*****She is 29 y.o. oh where does the time go, Debbie? HeHe. I hope it is the best Birthday ever!!!

My dad, husband and his Dad are on their way to Fort Lauderdale to get our Boat up here to our Marina-Yea! So, tomorrow I will let you know how everything went. It will be an early, light supper tonight then off to the ridiculous Halloween Party!

In closing, I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser.

Going to the Islands!

Once the Boat is back at our Marina (I think they’ll be leaving here Friday midday to drive to Fort Lauderdale) Dad, My F-I-L, husband are going together. My Dad will drive them down and drop them off and drive himself back. My husband and his Dad will be bringing the Boat home. Daddy should be back in time for this Halloween Church Party we go to every year tomorrow (Friday) night. My parents get the biggest kick out of it and you know how I feel about the whole thing R i d i c u l o u s!!! I have been preparing freezer meals for Mom (who will stay at my house to tend my family while we are away). My Mother can cook anything but I try and make it as easy for her as I possibly can. Like take it out of the freezer, get to room temperature and pop it in the oven!!! That kind of easy. My husband’s Mom and Dad will check in also (our parents are close friends). I am confident when I leave home on a trip that my family is well cared for. I usually get antsy about 2 days into any trip. I think it is because I miss them too much. I know a sap!

I’ll let you know when we are leaving and all the details etc. Until then… In closing, I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser.

Oh, think twice!

It’s another day for you and me in “paradise’! I had to go over to the Mainland this morning (which I rarely do) and let me say it is a totally different world over there. Close yet so far from our existence on the Beachside/Pennisula/Oceanside! I had not been over to the Mainland in many months;everything I need is on the Oceanside. I really looked around as I was driving on this errand for my Dad I am seeing much gloominess, stores closed, people walking aimlessly in no direction? I picked up the things for Daddy and hauled butt back to my “paradise” do not think for one minute I take my lifestyle for granted. I do not! When I stopped by Daddy’s house to drop off the items I talked to him about what I saw. He smiled and said Cheryl it is life and not getting better unfortunately for many local residents on the Mainland. I know my Family employs many (in totality over 100 people) it is a small percentage of those I saw walking around aimlessly in no direction. At least I know my Husband and Father are doing their part to help the economy for others to survive daily. No, I do not live in a “bubble” however it was a sad awakening too me none-the-less. So, each of YOU look around, seriously look and see if you see what I saw today in your hometown/area?

In the meantime my grocery shopping, errands are done and I am cooking and baking away! Tonight supper is Seafood!

In closing, I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser. Have a great Hump Day Y’All!

So, where is my Passport?

I am late posting to you because I can not remember where I placed my Passport?! Oh, it is in this house somewhere?! I’ll eventually find it (I hope). This weekend my Husband, his Dad and my Dad are going down to Fort Lauderdale to pick up our Boat. The Marine-Guru is down there and has had the boat 2 months working on the Inboard engines. Oh, she’s a beauty and I love water skiing! Even in International Waters you must have your Passport! Duh? I know this. They are bringing it back home because our trip (soon) is on the Boat! Ah, ha I finally found out! I am good with that. So I will keep you all posted on the getaway trip!

I must get on to my chores that I am 2 hours behind on. The oven is baking quick bread and cupcakes. Next is supper I’ll be baking. The gardens are tended already (that’s an early morning chore). The pool is next then I’ll just have to fall in! HeHe. I hope you are having a great day!

In closing, I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser.

MOM was surprised!

The Birthday was Mom’s she is 61 years young!!! Keeping it on the down low was not easy. Daddy helped me along with the rest of the family. Last year was the Milestone Birthday Bash (60th) with friends and family from all over the US. This year a bit quieter. It was a great time had by all!

How was your weekend? I hope you did something fun and exciting! It’s back to the usual Monday chores, yep, laundry piled up!!! Bedding to change and wash. I am baking again today the house smells good! It is a very pretty day out. My “Ocean” is calm and I saw several people jogging this morning.

In closing, I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser.

Turn back time…

If you could turn back time what would you find, a same you, would you recognize you? Of course you would! We have a huge Birthday Party today! I am setting everything up on the Lanai and Veranda. It is a pretty day out! The Ocean is calm and alluring as always. Lots of great food to eat today, some grilling will be done, great desserts (besides just a big Birthday Cake) everyone will be on a sugar rush! HeHe.

What are your plans today? I am hoping something fun!!! In closing, I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser.

T.G.I.F. Where oh where does the time go?!

Yep, another week gone, slipped by, history. Mother time is rolling along like my ocean waves! It was a hectic morning all is good now and quiet. What are your weekend plans? I am not sure exactly what we are doing as far as I know we do not have any company coming to visit. The weather is beautiful in fact I just cleaned the pool and will probably just accidentally “fall in”. HeHe. All the herbs, houseplants are tended.
Supper is in the slow cooker and the baking is done. The house still smells good like pumpkin spice.

Up-date on Pepe: He is doing well, attending AA regularly hoping to earn a 30 day (whatever they earn?) he is eating and feeling better. Daddy said his road will be long but is confident he will follow through. Once Daddy is comfortable with his progress he will start him working part-time at the Motel with Jose. One step at a time Daddy said.

In closing, I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser. Have a safe and Great Weekend Y’All!!!
