Dab of This and That

I was sitting here at the computer one morning, drinking my morning coffee, looking at flooring and paint colors and happened to look up and saw my own personal rainbow across from me. The sun was shining in on a crystal candle stick on the dining table and created a pretty reflection.
Took pics., sat down and about a minute later looked up and it had traveled up the wall! Nice way to start the day! :D
I know one thing for sure - It is a good thing I never tried to be an interior decorator! I would have starved to death if I had to make a living as one. I have spent so much time lately trying to make decisions on what color to paint a bedroom, what flooring to use in the kitchen/dining area, and my brain felt fried just looking at all the choices of tile for a bathroom. Not to mention the permanent crick in my neck I have acquired from looking up at hanging lighting fixtures. I can walk into a room full of what ever I need to buy, no price tags on anything, and I promise you the one thing I pick out will be the most expensive and out of my budget !! Bottom line - I have champagne taste with a beer pocketbook ! Now you can see why my "To Do" list is so long (well that, on computer to much , and procrastination).
Now on to more important things - FOOD!!!!!
On one of my "drain bamaged" non-decision making days, I decided I wanted something to eat that I like, but I don't make very often - kraut and and smoked sausage. I can hear some of you now going Ewwwwwww! :D Photobucket
Growing up, it was kraut and wieners and we always had mashed potatoes with it. I prefer the smoked sausage and mac and cheese as a side (Stouffers' - saves a lot of work). :D And of course - I served it on fine china by Dixie. :D Hey, it saved a lot of cleanup.

Just another Dab of This and That !
Hope everyone is enjoying their week.

Oh my goodness, soon as I saw the kraut and sausage I had a mental image of kraut and hotdogs with mashed potatoes. It's been awhile since we've had this...I think I have our Thursday lunch planned!

I love your rainbow.

Your own rainbow looks beautiful, but it is that plate of luscious food I want.
Talk about bringing back childhood memories.

I am adding that to the grocery list.
