Red, White and Blue?


To be honest,
I really didn't feel like celebrating our Country's independence this year.
Too many people are giving up their freedom's and it makes me sad.
It seems that everywhere you turn,
the nation is corrupt.
Our government, city, state and federal, and the justice system.
 Our schools.
 Our news media, TV and internet.
Families.
We have become a me, me, me society...
If it feels good do it.
Love and equality for all.
Which is just a rue, for, I want my way, no matter what
and be damned you religious people who oppose
my right to blatantly sin.
Don't judge me they say.
Well I am judging.
I am judging right from wrong.
Every man, woman and child was born with the innate sense ability, of right from wrong.
It's called a conscience.
I have known from a very young age, when I am doing something wrong.
Sexual relations with another man or woman of the same sex
is wrong. No matter how you fluff the issue.
That is not Gods plan for creation.
I fear, that society as a whole, has tossed out their conscience,
in order to feel good.
The latest ruling from the high court, is just a tiny piece of what has gone wrong with our Country.
I fear that someday,
we will be sitting around our dining room table,
 talking about what once was.
God,
have mercy on our souls...

At the Beach











I do not have to tell you
 that my favorite place in the world is the beach,
since I have professed it many times on this blog.

We spent a week in San Diego and the weather was glorious...

Making memories with family is priceless...

The Weekend

Doesn't this look like the best place to
stay in bed
all weekend long?

Arizona Clouds



I was driving home the other day,
when the scene in front of me, stopped me in my tracks
I stopped right in the middle of the road
and snapped a picture
windshield and all
The Arizona skies have been beautiful lately

Life Lately



Eggs and cereal
my main food source lately
My girls are only laying two eggs a day
that comes out to around $1.42 an egg
pretty soon they won't be laying any eggs
and I will have to consider them my pest control

About a year ago,
I discovered breve lattes at Starbuck's
I don't drink coffee anymore
I drink latte's
I have a venti size every morning
The only down side to this, the starbuck's next to my house,
is not a drive thru

I picked up a book at Goodwill the other day, Churchill's Triumph
I have yet to read it, maybe in Nebraska

I started watching Schitt's Creek, love it, it's so funny
RHOBH is "crazy", can't wait for the reunion, my hubby is so disgusted that I watch it

Lost Immigrant's, I love their music

Missing my monkey's and wishing they lived closer

Getting excited for our little wagon adventure, buying sinks, lights, etc...

Still addicted to estate sales, auctions, thrift stores

Lent is changing me this year

The picture was taken at my Mom's house
where we had the family Christmas party
and I have no idea what I was doing
apparently, entertaining everyone

Goodbye Mrs. Kiddelhopper


death
it's all around
half way across the world
and right at my door step
there's no escaping it
the last year of my life looks like a used afghan
a little unraveling here
and a little unraveling there
and no matter how you try to fix it
it's still there
you do your best
but,
it just doesn't look the same
there's always a hole and tattered ends of the yarn that came apart
you wish you had taken better care of it

Goodbye Mrs. Kiddelhopper, you will be missed

It's Monday








Would somebody please have a garden party?

So, I have been home for a week and I miss my hubby, ughhh...
I miss cooking for him and making him his favorite cookie
I have a million and one projects for him to do
he will be home in a few weeks and I will be writing how he's driving me crazy
never happy...

Lest you get the wrong idea,
in my mind, those pics from above are happening in the summer
not the spring
I loathe the spring...

I think America eats to much chicken
I have my reasons...
so I have dubbed Sunday's
chicken only

Petie's Sunday Chicken

I soaked a whole chicken in whole milk for a few hours,
drained it,
sprinkled it with olive oil, gave it a squeeze of lemon juice,
poured a little melted butter over it and some salt
and baked it for a couple of hours

Trust me when I say, you won't even have to set the table,
the chicken will be gone before you even get it to the table
it's that good...
