Treating Cecil with Kindness :o)

Cecil has been so patient while I was "Ginning" the Cotton, I thought I'd give him a reward, so at night I'd ask "What do you want for Breakfast" This morning it was Bacon and homemade waffles...with a glass of milk ..(after we sat around for an hour having a cup of coffee watching the news)
It's going to be another slow Saturday unless I decide to do laundry (that may be the excitement of the day) we both have reached the stage ,"if it's not done today there is always tomorrow, and if I'm not here, someone else will have to do it":o)
I was going to "snap" a picture, but in haste of serving it hot, the "snap" had to be put on hold (sorry Ladydi:o)
Last nights supper was another photo I "intended" to snap,Lamb chops, boiled Sweet potato,broccoli and cauliflower with butter and Parisian cheese...I found a nice way to make it, first i steam it in a square pan with a round grate(for lack of right word) then I empty the water when the veggies are soft to the fork, I sprinkle cheese and salt over it and kind of "toss" them around to get the butter and oil on them, and that's it..Cecil loves it and always remarks how he never thought he would eat Cauliflower and Broccoli.I want to tell him "I'm a better cook than you Mama!, but I leave it alone hehehe....( I copied a lot of her recipes :o)
Thus far there isn't anything else new here today...unless you want to see the cotton again, scroll down :o) hehehe I'm silly this morning , maybe it's the syrup!I only have it if my blood sugar is at a good level and today I was lucky...

I love when you post about Cecil. You have a great deal of affection for each other I think.

I think after 60 years of marriage we should have some affection and concern for each other.
There is a joke that when your together for such a long time you start to look like each other. I think we still look like ourselves and that's a good thing :o), I don't feel up to shaving in the morning :o), and I better not see him in Lipstick! Ginny

Hi Ginny, tell Cecil I am sorry my cotton has taken you away! Maybe you can spin something for him! You have worked so hard! You might not want anymore next year! blessings, Kathleen

I guess it is more important to serve it hot, than take a photo! You're funny! I'm glad Cecil is getting his tasty meals. I really knew he was. :>}

Kathleen,don't think for one "Cotton picking minute" that Cecil is going to get this Cotton,
I've already made plans for it to be for Me! Me! Me! ..He was supposed to help,but started doing it messy and I took it away from him (I think that's just what he wanted :o)....Next year my hand is still out! :o) Ginny

Ginny, I think you probably treat Cecil with kindness all the time. You seem like a very kind soul to me. :)

Those veggies sound good and so do the waffles and bacon!

I often forget to take pictures of something I intended to also. Later, I'll think of it--too late then, of course.
