Afternoon Break


Hello, Dear Ones.
 Wanted you to know Mr. Precious and I are out in our RV, Kiki, for a few days and if you haven't heard from me that's why. Sometimes there is internet access at RV campgrounds but so far I haven't had very good luck with them. Oh, well, "glamping" doesn't necessarily include putering! But I miss you and need to check in with my blog family! So here's just a little something,

Oh, Another thing...I wanted to thank Stephanie Lynn at Under the Table and Dreaming,
Cindy at Dwellings-the Heart of Your Home 
and
Maria at Our Home Away From Home
for featuring my little Sun Porch.
Thank you soooooo much and this made me so happy.

Okie Dokie...here's a little something...

  I don't know about you but I need a break.
Each afternoon I pop up some popcorn! I admit it ~ I LOVE POPCORN!

 
 I just adore poking those little fluffy crunchy white kernels into my tiny mouth! 

 Of course my drink of choice is a Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper with lots and lots of ice.
Now don't rub your most gorgeous peepers! Yes, this is a very olden glass with scratches all over it.
 It's big! Very big and I always use it and have for the last twenty years!
I know the bagged popcorn is so easy to poke into the microwave and pop.
It's tasty  and I've used that for years.
But one day I decided ~ no more bagged popcorn for me. 
So I bought some of that ole Orville's corn and then I bought some of his popping oil! 
Honey, that was the day that changed my 'popcorn poppin life'!
I just love these freshly popped kernels so much more than the bagged kind.

Now I'm inviting you to sit down with me and take a break. 
Let me get a glass and pour you some Dr. Pepper!
Oh, I do have another one of my olden glasses with scratches on it just for you! ;)
Do you like a little melted butter on yours? 

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

The Popcorn Song

Now here's a funny story
Hope you understand
Listen very closely
If you possibly can

It's a story of two popcorn kernels
In a red hot pan
One turned to the other
And said, hey, man

I'm too pooped to pop
And I ain't lying
I'm too pooped to pop
Just laying here frying

Salt and and butter's ready
And the fire is hot
But seems like
I'm just too pooped to pop

Too pooped to pop
And I ain't playing possum
I'm too pooped to pop
And I do want to blossom

Don't like the bottom
Wanna get up on top
It seems like I'm
Just too pooped to pop

Iowa's the state
That's where I was born
I really truly came
From a fine ear of corn

My mama and my papa
Were a wonderful crop
You should have seen them
Blow up when they
Put them in the pot

But I'm too pooped to pop
And I ain't lying
I'm too pooped to pop
Just laying here frying

Don't like the bottom
Wanna get up on top
It seems like I'm
Just too pooped to pop

  1. I LOVE popcorn- I know I eat entirely too much of it, and yes, unfortunately love the real melted butter with a few shakes of salt.

    YUM.

    I'll be right over, never camped in an RV before, hope your Mr. doesn't mind a guest haha.

    Hugs.

  2. I just had some popcorn myself Sheila! Most of the time I use my air popper and most of the time I just add salt... But I did melt a little butter tonight:@)

  3. Oh, yes...melted butter on the freshly popped corn, please. I don't like the bagged stuff either. You're certainly having alot of fun with Kiki aren't you? That's great!!

  4. Love popcorn and I also went back to old fashioned "kettle" corn. I think it tastes much better. Enjoy your time with little Kiki! xo

  5. My hubby loves popcorn. Do you know we never had it as kids so I never really developed a taste for it. Hubster could eat a gallon of it. xo Diana

  6. We also only pop popcorn on the stove. It is sacrilegious to use a microwave. Enjoy camping :}

  10. That microwave popcorn isn't exactly as good for you as the kind you pop in the kettle on the stove! I stopped that a number of years ago.

    So glad to join you for some popcorn and something to drink! Thank you so very much!

  11. Sheila, you are just the cutest thing! I love reading your posts. They ALWAYS make me smile. I can just imagine you sitting there enjoying your popcorn and Dr. Pepper every afternoon. And yes, I do enjoy a little (or a lot of) melted butter on mine, thank you! :)

  12. Have a great RV trip.

    My hubby refuses microwave popcorn. He wants Orville's freshly popped. I have to try that kind of oil. The microwave stuff is okay with me when I want to make it fast.

  13. Have fun. I hope we get to do this some day.

  14. Your popcorn looks yummy. Hope you have a great time "glamping". It certainly beats camping...in my book.

  15. Have fun camping. I love popcorn too and the old fashioned way. I hate that microwave stuff, it is so salty I cant tolerate it. Love the vintage bowl your popcorn is in too:)

  16. Oh, you're out having fun! I'm so glad! And now....long long ago...you mentioned Diet cherry Dr. Pepper and it was the longest time before I could find it. I love it now, too! And Popcorn! We pop Orville real popcorn in a microwave bowl and melt a little real butter for the top! OH MY! It's good! HAVE FUN!

  18. Oh Shelia, how fun to be out in Kiki and having popcorn also. I popped myself some this afternoon. I do the microwave corn but I am going to get Orville and pop my own.
    Have fun glamping.
    Hugs, Mary

  19. Hi Shelia, I would love to have some of the pop corn and a glass of Dr. Pepper, please! It look addictive.

    Have a lovely week ahead.

  20. LOVE popcorn. For you health's sake, I am glad you don't do the microwave stuff. The chemicals in those bags are NOT good for you. We do frequently use our air popper,,,, but truly, no popcorn is better than when done on the stove! And, of course, with a little added butter!!

  21. Honey, I have got to have melted butter and lots of it, plus a good shake of salt. I prefer popping corn the old fashioned way - in a pan on the stove. Does anyone else do that anymore?? I always manage to burn the bagged stuff in the microwave. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  22. You are so darned cute and always make me laugh out loud or at least a big grin!!! I'll take a generous portion of BUTTER, thank you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I will take the popcorn....but I will pass on the Dr. Pepper....any of them. But a Pepsi will do! My hubby has a big neon green plastic cup....he LOVES that stupid cup.....I don't even know how long we have had it...but it better survive!!

  24. We love popcorn so much that we bought a small theater popcorn machine. The house smells so good when we us it. I love the bowl that was holding your popcorn.

  25. Hope you are enjoying your time away with Mr. Precious! Of course having a Kiki like you do would make it nice to get away! I too love me some popcorn...but I need my diet coke to go with it! And oh yes...I will have EXTRA butter please! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  26. Everyone seems to be posting about one of my favorite foods, popcorn. And I can't have any for another two weeks, thanks to oral surgery for wisdom teeth yesterday. No wisdom, no popcorn. Your's looks delish!

  30. Do you enjoy time in your RV? We've been thinking about one, but don't know that we would use it enough to warrant a purchase !!!

  33. What a great song, I like to find your songs on youtube so I can hear what they sound like. Oh yes, I would love to share a bowl of popcorn and have a diet Cherry Dr Pepper too!
    Have fun while glamping!!!
