ON THE BACK BURNER

May 19

How can you drink a regular sized cup of coffee and then weigh yourself and you've gained two lbs. What is wrong with the scale. It can't be me. Coffee has no calories. And a cup of coffee is 6 ounces of liquid. It has to be the scale. I never cared that much for breakfast. I blame it on my Mother. She never got up to fix me breakfast,or to fix my school lunch. I ate what ever was left over from dinner,or not. No one really cared in those days that a student learns better when they eat a breakfast. If I could pick my favorite breakfast,I'd have a hard time.I don't like eggs all that much. Grits are good, but they take too long to cook first thing in the morning and no southern gal would use instant grits. Oatmeal is Ok.Interesting, I love the smell of cooked oatmeal. Quick cooking oats are fine. Salt, pepper and butter. Nothing else. Pancakes and waffles give me a stomach ache early in the morning. It's the sweet syrup . A piece of left over pizza is good. Or cold spaghetti. That reminds me so much of my Mother.I wonder what my kids remember about me. Hope it is better then cold spaghetti.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
