Too windy to work in the garden...

We had such a beautiful day on Saturday...
so, on Sunday, I was looking forward to working on our patio..
puttering in my container garden...
potting some bright, new flowers...

and then it started again...
we've had furious winds  all spring....almost every single day.


 I hung my gardening hat up on a peg
and put on an apron
and made.....

a biscuit can brighten my day about as quick as anything I can think of...

♥ ♥ ♥


 ...the cute set of Blue and White spreaders...

I found them at Goodwill for $2.00...

6 little spreaders with porcelain a decorated wooden holder...

...when I find something this cute, I always wonder why/how they ended up in a thrift store.

something missing....

 I have to say...
those biscuits were delicious.
I'll wait out the fierce winds and work in my container garden another day.

 he is still looking good, I think...
his smile is strong...
his eyes are bright...
and he is pleased with losing over 25 lbs
and we go out most everyday in the sunshine and fresh air
and he is getting a tan....
(the fella behind him in the pink shirt is a very good friend that
came to visit him from another state.....we were all sooo glad to see PAT)


  1. He does look good! So do those Buttermilk Biscuits... you have the best food pictures! We've had those strong winds too, all the way up here in Michigan. But, some gardening did happen this weekend. It's always so nice when a few beautiful plants are put in the pots and the ground. Enjoy your day!

  2. Those biscuits look like my Mama made them, I know they were DELICIOUS! Mr. Sweet looks great and I know he was happy to see his friend! Sending HUGS and PRAYERS your way!

  3. Mmmmm, biscuits! Glad to see Mr Sweet is looking so good!

  4. BJ, You make biscuits as tempting as cookies. I am not a big fan of high winds either. Mr. Sweet is looking fine. So glad he still smiles. Nice that his friend visited from so far. I am wishing all of you blessings. xoxo, Susie

  5. He looks fantastic. The biscuits look amazing. I'm sorry it was windy. We didn't have wind out here in Arlington but it was overcast and gross. We had a beautiful day for yard work yesterday.

  6. Bill looks great. Glad to hear he is doing well. The biscuits look delicious. Hope the wind dies down so you can work on planting your flowers. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  7. He is looking wonderful! I know it's good to see him smile. Love the little spreaders in a holder, so cute. I use those all the time. Oh yummy biscuits. Enjoy your day.

  8. Such a lovely photo of you all - and yes, your special guy is looking so good!
    Have a great week dear.

  9. It looks like your summer is off to a great start! I was just thinking what I would like for breakfast - but I think it will have to be toast as I have sat in front of my computer too long...oh, well! I remember the winds in Lubbock. Hot and full of dirt! We would arrive home after school with it packed into every pore. Filthiest kids ever! Ha! Have a great day!

  10. Biscuits looking might fine . . .
    I wonder too, now why would someone get rid of these pretty little blue/white spreaders!
    Your guy is looking great . . . sunny days, (with no wind) will make for some good healing days.
    Hugs bj . . .

  11. Wonderful smile and bright eyes!

  12. OHHHHH Those biscuits!!! You never fail to bring a good fun post. I know your itching to get out in the garden. We have calm sunny days with windy stormy afternoons. I don't mind as I love a good thunderstorm. I'm glad yall are getting out in the sun. Its good for you!

  13. Daisy will sometimes will call me and say "Can I go to Bojangles, I'm off work" and I'll be like "grab me a biscuit or two"

  14. Hello BJ, I am really happy to see everyone's smiling faces, now shall I put the kettle on, I see you have made gorgeous biscuits?!

    Healing wishes your way with a great big hug.

  17. Your sweetie does look good. I've been praying for both of you and won't stop now. Your biscuits had me at the first photo! Great find at the Goodwill. I'm always thankful when someone didn't want something I find that delights my heart.

  18. SO GLAD Mr. Sweet is looking and doing so good! YUM, Biscuits!! Need to find the recipe.

  19. He really does look great! Looks like you've lost some weight too...and it's no wonder! We keep you both in our prayers. I bought buttermilk at the store this morning to make biscuits this week. I'll save you both one...or two! Hugs, Diane

  21. So nice to see Mr. Sweet looking tan and happy with his dear ones.


  22. Mr. Sweet looks very happy. Glad he is out getting a tan.

    My those spreaders are cute.

    God bless.

  23. It's wonderful to see Mr. Sweet looking so well! Hope the wind has died down so you can garden. But making biscuits is a great option - you've made me crave one that's dripping with butter and marmalade.

  24. I swear I had a set of those exact same spreaders at one time! Mr. Sweet looks fabulous! So glad he is doing well. We have wind like that all the time, it is crazy!

  25. Awwww sweet BJ! -- thank you for visiting my little front porch and your sweet comments today MADE MY DAY!!

  26. Great picture! So good to see your smiling faces. And those biscuits, oh my word those look delicious!!

  27. I need one of those biscuits! YUM! Such a precious picture of family BJ. Prayers are still abounding. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  28. What a great picture of your family and Mr. Sweet looks so good. I sure could eat about 12 of those biscuits with some jelly on them and lots of butter. On the farm that my mothers family had my twin uncles and would not sit down to a meal unless there were fresh home made biscuits on the table.
    Now being on a carb diet no biscuits for me, but look out when I lose my weight I am having a couple. LOL

    We have had a lot of wind also, I can't even open my umbrella's.

    Take care BJ and my best to Mr. Sweet.


  29. Mr. Sweet looks fabulous, so do you. Love me some buttermilk biscuits. Pretty table setting bj. Take Care

  30. BJ....I love visiting you and your colorful world. Sending warm hugs to you and your darling husband. I know those biscuits must have been heavenly!

  31. Even in all your unsettling times, you can still cook. Those biscuits certainly should make Mr. Sweet feel better. Think of you more than I tell you. Take care and hang in.

  32. Awe Your Mr. Sweet looks Good! look at that sweet smile- he is too cute! What a great photo, and blessing. I've got to tell you BJ one look at those biscuits and my mouth was watering...BIG TIME. I hope your recipe is here somewhere or you can point me in the right direction? If not no worries I'll just come back here and drool or break out the Bisquick - my go to when I want a biscuit fast. or KFC is pretty close lol :::Smile:::
