This is my favorite flower in the bunch. I don't know what it is called, but it was really pretty.

Tuesday night=Date Night
Charlie and I had an impromptu date night this past Tuesday. Beth was at work, and Trevlyn spent the night with a friend so we had the house to ourselves. I already had a meal planned and since it was Charlie's favorite we decided to just stay home & enjoy the quiet house!
To my surprise Charlie brought me flowers. 5 dozen roses wouldn't have pleased me more! This is the first time he's brought me flowers in...well, I can't even remember!
Aren't all the different colors beautiful?
Our meal wasn't fancy, just Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Creamed Corn.
Then I made Honey Oatmeal Wheat Bread in my new Breadmachine. It is really really good bread! This is the 2nd loaf of bread that I've made. The first was just a basic white bread. The picture is of about 1/2 of the loaf already sliced. I am hoping to make 1 loaf of bread a week to supplement our bread intake. Charlie eats a sandwich every day for lunch, and I was hoping by making homemade bread that it will get some of the preservatives out of his system. He has had a few health problems over the last few months so I am trying everything that I can to make him feel better.
I don't have a picture of my breadmachine because I simply forgot to take one. I purchased the breadmachine at Goodwill for $4.20. It makes 1, 1 1/2, & 2 lb loafs. It has so many different settings that I had to print the manual from the on-line website just so I would know how to use it. So far though I could say that I've gotten my money's worth, wouldn't you?
Sorry if my pictures are blurry. My computer is still broken. I took the pictures with my cell phone then emailed them from my cell to my personal email. Today, I uploaded them, while at work but on my lunch break, from my personal email to blogger! I hope to have my computer repaired this weekend.
