Miscellany Monday

1. i'm not sure there is anywhere else in the u.s. that one can live and actually see spanish moss growing in trees like you can here in louisiana. it has always been so interesting to me and you would not believe all the ways one can use that moss to decorate. trouble is that you have to figure out how to get up in the trees to get it. ~smile

2. we enjoyed going with friends to a habachi grill Saturday evening. this was only my 3rd time to go and i love  the food. we had a very fun waiter/chef last night. it is so amazing to me how they rattle those utensils, flip the food, squirt the seasonings and never miss a beat.  i wonder how long it takes them to learn to do this? i think it would be much like learning to juggle and am quite certain that it is a task beyond my ability. ~wink~

 3. i think that most habachi grills are also sushi bars (it obvious that i don't know a lot about either one) one of the folks with us last night ordered sushi and while i cannot imagine putting something by that name in my mouth, it had a most attractive look.  i think he thought i was pretty "  out there" when i told him i wanted to take a picture of it before he "dug in."   it was absolutely perfect and uniform and the plate presentation actually made it look yummy.

 4. hubby's thoughts are beginning to turn to hunting. he is quite the golfer but it has gotten so unbearably hot that he says he may not do much more until next spring. it's too hot to golf but not to hot to go and ready the woods for deer hunting. (go figure) hubby has been an avid hunter for over 50 years. there isn't a trick that he doesn't know and his deer stands look like the "Hilton on a stand." 

 they are equipped with carpet, heaters, nice swivel chairs and windows that open.  he spends some of his happiest times in his deer stands and says he does some of his best thinking while there. he is able to get "up close and personal"  with mother nature. he's one of  the reasons that louisiana is called "   a sportsman's paradise." 

5. i'm in love with my keurig coffee maker.  i've had it almost a year and i like it more everyday. it is just the coolest one machine.

i love the little pods and all the many flavors of coffee available in them.  it's so much neater and quicker than a regular coffee pot and your coffee is always freshly brewed.  i love me some coffee first thing in the morning!

6. our sunday school lesson yesterday  was on how god desires to be involved in any and all of our decisions. he's not just about the big things in our lives, but even what we might think of as mundane. i know that and have known it for many years, but i sure did need to be reminded.  it's so easy to forget to consult him on any and everything that concerns us. may i be rededicated to this in the days ahead.

as always, miscellany monday is so much fun! i don't know how carissa finds the time to host us each week, but i sure am glad she does.  she is a sweetheart!  perhaps she is like many of the rest of us, blogging is her therapy. ~smile~

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. I am with you on #6. The best thing about it all is that he cares about every little detail in our live. Just like you said. He's AMAZING!!
    As for the Hibachi!!! I love love it! I haven't been there in a few years but I remember how tasty it was. Thanks for sharing your randomness. Have a fabulous week!


  2. I wouldn't know what to do with Spanish moss even if I could climb up and get it!

    I love habachi grills. There is a place I love to eat at my local mall called Hibachi Son.

    I once had a Keurig coffe maker, but gave it to a friend. I miss it so much. I would love to buy the Mini Keurig one day!

    Happy Monday!

  3. My husband is a hunter too, but more of an avid fisherman! I'm sure he would like your husband's hilton in the trees! I love your ~winks, ~smiles, and ~chuckles!

  4. We saw a lot of Spanish moss in NC when we vacationed there early Spring. I feel in love with it then. My son calls the japanese steak house restaurants, "chop chop restaurants". And I'm totally in love with my Keurig coffee maker. I think it's the greatest thing ever!

  5. I enjoy seeing the spanish moss in Charleston, SC. They have it too. So lovely.

    I love Japanese food! Yum!

    Ha, my husband builds those hotels on stilts too. I understand. :o)

    Thanks for visiting me. Have a great week!

  6. Mmmm ... Oh that sushi!

    We don't have a lot of that in northwest Iowa. :-)

    But we are huge sushi fans. So a few times a year, we take our little girls up to a little sushi joint in Sioux Falls, S.D. The girls get a kick out of trying all the mysterious foods -- and they think it's great fun eating with chopsticks.


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
