Chocolate Toffee Ice Cream Dessert and a bunch of crap.

Before I give you this divine recipe I must explain my absence from the blogging scene as of late.
I have had tens of fans, o.k. maybe 3 asking where I have been.

First, as I have mentioned in the past I have four generations of people living in my house at the moment. YES, I said four!!

Mom and dad who are invalids with alzheimer's disease live in the MIL Apt. I think I am just going to make it the alzheimer's unit of the house and put them in lock down. Things would be safer around here if I did that!

Then there is my daughter, her husband, and their 3 children living in the basement. I think I'll put them in lock down too while I am at it. At the moment my comforter and blanket on my bed are covered in chocolate. It does come in handy for my midnight snacks but however, it doesn't look so swell.

Papa and I just got back from a little vacation. We went to Philadelphia ( more on that later) so I have been gone a few days.

This morning was a typical day around here. I arose with a migraine so I was moving slow, of course I had on one of Papa's 2X T shirts and my darling purple striped pajama bottoms that could survive any flood that came along. I was on the couch enjoying a Pepsi and some pop corn waiting for my meds to kick in when I hear "ding dong" It was my daughters BIL and SIL they had just come from a wedding. Tay (the daughter) knew they were coming but neglected to let me in on the secret. BUT that wasn't all, soon Tay's MIL, FIL, BIL, Grandma, Aunt so and so and uncle so and so, her SIL and niece were all filing in the door while I sat there with popcorn stuck in my teeth and grapefruit juice dribbled down my shirt from breakfast. My hair had a rats nest look from the 60's and in my mind I was plotting how I was going to kill Taylor later in the day.

Now mind you Tay's MIL had called the previous day and asked Taylor if it would be alright if they hung out at our house between the wedding and luncheon because they live an hour away so of course Tay said yes. BUT did not tell me. Papa has died many deaths through the years doing what Taylor did today. He finally wised up. She knows the rules of my house. I want everyone to see my fake life which consists of a spotless house that smells like clean laundry and cookies. I cannot be seen looking like a clown with popcorn stuck in my teeth at any time!

Luckily I dearly love all of these people that came over so it turned out o.k. I have actually traveled with Taylor's MIL and she knows what I really look like in the morning, although it was almost noon when this all occurred.

This truly is what a typical day is like around here, different people and situations but something is always going on, and in the middle of it all you are hearing " I'm hungry." "I have to go potty." "Nevermind I just peed my pants." and that's just from my mother!

Well now that I have gone on for an eternity I need to go to bed. I will post the recipe in the morning, maybe. I have a dentist appt. I hope I have gotten all that popcorn out of my teeth!

A Meme , An Award and Two Sick Little Boys

The expanation to this lovely award is found below. I am such a weiner.


Henry and Will are sick. There are a variety of fun things ripping through our neighborhood, one of which is the Swine Flu. I hope they both just have colds but who knows. Henry wants to sleep and Will, well swinging him like that kept him quiet for awhile.


Then to top it off it has been raining here for two weeks. Today we woke up to sunshine only to have it turn into more rain. It's so bad Papa thought he had a rash on his back side and asked me if I would take a look. He's just got a moldy crack. I sprayed it with a little bleach, he should be fine.


Jane from Jumpin in the jungle tagged me the other day for a Meme. I am supposed to name 6 unimportant things in life that make me happy. Let me see....

1. See's Candy

2. The smell of clothes washing and drying. This is something that brings me great joy!

3. See's Candy

4. Caramel Apples. When I need a fix I make a run to Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, or V's Chocolates. I prefer the latter.

5. Baby lotion, with a clean baby attached. Mmmmmm!

6. Sitting on my deck when it is raining, and lightning, and thundering. It is so pretty to watch unless lightning strikes the house.


O.k. Now for the award:


Noah's mommy from Project mommyhood gave me a sweet award the other day also. I want to thank her very much for thinking about me. Especially since I have been such a slacker in the blogging area as of late. Running out to pull weeds and clean the yard in between rain storms is kicking my butt!

Somehow I don't think they are going to get a sale.
