Latest Thing to Wear to a Business Seminar

Let's pretend that you have driven from the far corner of the great state of Texas to attend a business seminar. You are representing your county judge and your county. And you wear these:


Walking the dog shoes.
Beach shoes.
Kayaking shoes.
Running shoes.
"Barefoot" skiing shoes.
Shower shoes.

But wear them to a seminar?

Okay. I do not wear my nicer office clothes and heels to seminars. I go for more of that "Office Casual Friday" ... slacks and blouses...generally a couple of layers because most of those meeting rooms can be like an ice box...and I'm usually the only one in the room who is uncomfortably hot.

And. I wear loafers. Not sports shoes. Not Crocs (I do not own a pair of Crocs...they are garden shoes and I can purchase much cheaper shoes to wear in the garden). Not 5-finger shoes.

Wear these things? To a business seminar? I thought about dragging my camera out of my purse but was afraid I would be too obvious. You really should've seen the whole "presentation." You may have done a "double-take" too.

Fried Chicken!!

I planned on meatloaf for supper Friday. When I got the ground beef out of the refrigerator and was thinking about the rest of the ingredients...egg, onion, cracker crumbs, tomato sauce... Tomato sauce? My eye landed on the leftover spaghetti sauce in the refrigerator. Spaghetti sauce? :-) So, I smushed some spaghetti sauce into the meat mixture. Patted half in a loaf pan. Layered some sliced cheddar cheese on top. Topped with the remaining meat mixture, onions, and more spaghetti sauce. Then ... My cell phone rang. Carol asked us to meet them in Pittsburg for pizza. Sam walked in the back door at the same time. I turned to him and asked, "Meatloaf or meet Carol and Elton for pizza." He responded, "Pizza." So...I covered the meatloaf tartare and refrigerated it.

I cooked it for lunch yesterday. It was good! Sam not only went back for seconds, he ate thirds! "Guess you like it." "Yes. It's really good." "I used leftover spaghetti sauce in it." "It's really good!" LOL

This morning I put the fixin's in the bread machine and we had meatloaf sandwiches with fresh baked bread. Mmmmm.

Sam watched the race. I read a bit. Napped a bit. Worked on a Dear Jane block. Oh...have I mentioned that yet? I'll read the last few posts so I won't repeat myself and get back with you later.

After the race I told him that I wanted Chicken Express chicken. So we went to Mt. Pleasant. This is the place that puts the Bible verse on the bottom of the receipt. Today's verse is:

"He is your praise, and He is your God, who has done for you these great and awesome things which your eyes have seen." Deuteronomy 10:21.
