Sweet "Saturday"

We always say in my family that the weekend should be three days long so you can have two Saturdays and a Sunday. One Saturday for work, one for fun and Sunday for rest. Well, I am having my ideal weekend. I looked at my calendar and I have a bunch of vacation days to use or lose before the end of the year. So, today is "Saturday" for me. You might find me doing some yard work but you will most likely can find me on the sofa with this...

Okay, if Monday's Snowballs didn't get you this has to. Pecan- pronounced peee-can and not pahcahn- twirls. I have loved these since I was a little girl. These aren't the brand we used to buy though. I seem to remember them coming on a foil pan wrapped in plastic. And you can't just bite into them- you have to untwirl them slowly until you get to the center.

And Wise white cheddar popcorn. This is not an oldie but an essential. I won't bore you with my popcorn preferences but I love this stuff so much that Mom would ship it to me when I lived overseas. The PX on post in Germany did not carry it and believe me I put in my fair shair of requests. Mmm.

I hope your weekend gets off to a sweet start like mine. Thank you for the amazing comments yesterday. It was so fun reaching the big 1-0-0!

i say pahcahn. is that bad - it probably means i am from the north huh? i'll work on that. is it creek or crick? we have a battle with that in our house - the boys say crick, karlie and i say creek. to funny. have a wonderful saturday, saturday, sunday weekend. sounds like heaven. and don't worry if one of those saturdays doesn't involve any work - there's always next weekend.

Hi... just wandered into your blog from... um... I forget where I found you... lol, but added you to my list of 'good reads' since it's nice to have fellow Virginia bloggers around. Your blog is lovely and I am sooooo jealous of the store!

I don't eat peee-can twirls, but I do LOVE me some peee-cans!!!

Enjoy your long weekend. Don't worry about working in the yard - it's raining! Just sit back, watch a good pirate movie, and enjoy your snacks:)

Well, I'm in luck b/c I don't like pee-can twirls and I'm pretty sure it's the only sweet that I don't like and I don't like white cheddar popcorn after I overdosed on it in highschool many years ago! But you have an awesome long weekend! Rain = Rest & Relaxation!

I just sent Jimmy to the store o White Cheddar Popcorn! Ah, you are a sneaky one, aren't you! I LOVE WHITE CHEDDAR POPCORN!!!

PS - He was going to the store anyway, it is just that destiny sent him in here to ask me if I needed anything, and thanks to you.....I DID!!!

Absolutely, it most certainly is PEE-can and not that other pronunciation. Enjoy your day off and please just relax and don't feel pressured to do anything except delight in the twirls and the corn. -cbw
