To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

HATCH CHILE FEST TIME...and ENJOYING THE LAST OF SUMMER
It has become one of our "traditions" to
enjoy a Saturday afternoon shopping at one of our favorite grocery stores
in late August to enjoy the Hatch Chile Fest!
This is a great seasonal event in many of our local groceries where
they feature delicious foods made with the Hatch Chiles!
The aroma of roasting peppers permeate the air....
it's very hot weather....but football season is beginning, school is starting
and you can just imagine the fall season is soon to arrive!
I so love this event and cannot wait to see what goodies are awaiting us....
I wish y'all could smell how delicious this is......
I love this store...it's a feast for the eyes...all those gorgeous fresh flowers!!
They also have a darling little shop in the store
where you can find all sorts of pretty home goods...Texas style!
How sweet is this longhorn pillow?
Gotta love Texas y'all!
Now let me share some of our grocery haul......
I have been searching for this syrup for a while and was thrilled
to finally find some....
I also was intrigued by this brand of pancake mix and I am SO
glad I tried it....
My Daddy made the children chocolate chip pancakes every time we
visited....this mix is fantastic!
While the darling is golfing on Sunday mornings, I treat
myself to a relaxing and delicious breakfast.....
This was marvelous......
I knew it was going to be a great day!
I love their deli and pick up some favorites of ours
every time we shop there....
this makes a fabulous luncheon for us....
their chicken salad is the best!
I love having freshly baked goodies in the kitchen...
today were these divine brownie bites and cranberry loaf!
What better time than to enjoy some afternoon entertainment
when it's 100 degrees....taking in a movie with a box of popcorn and
