Happy Tuesday!!
Y'all have really been so kind and awesome with all the emails and messages about Scooter. I'm not posting any photos of him with his stitches because some of you might get a little woozy. I have to admit that no amount of preparing myself with looking at other pups who had the surgery, I was still not prepared. Though I'd like to say he's is perfect and free of pain, I can't. He's in pain from being cut on and we are taking it day by day. He is eating and as you can see, I've had to put up the leg gate so Charlie can't get to Scooter's food.

His spirits were so lifted on Saturday when the boys came home (photo minus Brady because he had to go to work) and Aunt Tracy came over. The boys were a little upset and for sure weren't prepared. I will put together a photo album of Scooter's progress in next week's newsletter where you can actually click the link if you do want to see what he looks like and continued progress. I&…

Tuesday Coffee with Tonya and Weekly Giveaway

Good morning! y'all remember in an earlier newsletter in like May, I said that this summer was going to be quiet because all my boys were out of the house? Apparently, I lied. I've seen my kiddos more this summer than when they lived here.
Over the weekend three were home and brought a few more with them. I have to say that I loved cooking for that many again and hearing them laugh and cut up. It's nice the boys like to bring friends home.
And Eddy...he just can't relax. He's decided to build me a She Shed! I was cracking up because he and Austin were discussing all sorts of plans. Austin is studying to be an architect and he was excited. He even drew his image of my She Shed with me inside.

I'll keep you posted on the progress of my She Shed....
Also over the past few days we've had a mean game of Scrabble brewing on our kitchen chalk board. It's not your traditional Scrabble game and it was a perfect way for my kiddos to play and actually t…

Tuesday Coffee With Tonya and Weekly Giveaway!

Happy Tuesdee! That's how we say Tuesday where I'm from.
Let me tell you....we need a hillbilly Siri! Or the gal in the hands free phone thingy in my car needs to understand me better. I'll say to call Eddy. She says "did you say call Penny? Did you say call Susie?" I end up going through my entire contact list. I thought I got smart and put Eddy's number under husband. appears that I wasn't so smart after all. She replied, "did you say call David." Dang....
That's just the tip of my last week...
Y'all aren't going to believe this. I'm not joking and hand to heaven, there was ANOTHER SNAKE!! Didn't I tell y'all last week that I could hear my Papaw say that if there was one there was more...mmmhmmmm. Do you think he was talking to me from the great beyond? Anyways, this one was bigger and fatter!
I have to say it was hilarious watching Eddy wrangle the thing into the garbage can to toss back into the creek. He w…

Be sure to grab your copy while you can.
In the first of a delectable new Southern-set baking cozy series, Sophia Cummings, pastry chef extraordinaire, must craft the perfect cake for an old friend’s wedding while sifting through the suspects in a murder. 

Bucolic Rumford, Kentucky has glowing fields of bluegrass, a fine selection of bourbons, and now a professional pastry chef. Broken-hearted Sophia Cummings has come home from New York City. She’s not there a minute before she’s charmed into making her high school friend Charlotte’s wedding cake. The kitchen at the Rumford Country Club seems perfect until Chef Emile’s body is discovered, sprawled near the stove, a cast iron skillet on the floor close by. 

With one look at the shiny, new frying pan, Sophia knows it’s not Emile’s. She offers her knowledge to Sheriff Carter and her talents to Evelyn, the manager, who needs an interim chef. The mood in the coun…
