In fact, he made me laugh yesterday.
|No, this bathroom decor is NOT my doing. I would never have rainbow colored wall paper with dolphins at the bottom. Barf.|
|Classic Nathan Pose|
|His arms were tired, lol. I can’t imagine why.|
My oven is out of service this week. Eek! (Insert the Dun, dun, dun music)
Cause it’s broken. AND because it is broken, it made me have to look for recipes that could be cooked on the stove top only. While I was browsing for the goodies, I came across these inspiring dishes.
I have forgotten about the Tamale Pie dish from childhood, but I would like to make this twist on it.
I’m making these tonight for the first time!
I want to know how the heck this is made.
This would be really handy in my small kitchen.
I’m totally in love with this bread right now, and I’m totally going to make it.
This is the best thing I’ve seen all day…nom, nom.
Now get in that kitchen and cook!
Maybe most of you know about a book titled, Awkward Family Photos, and maybe some of you don’t. It’s a really funny book of family pictures gone terribly wrong, and it has given Bubba and I a good laugh many times. You should definitely check it out one day.
Any HOO, I am talking about this book because Bubba and I have our own picture that went terribly wrong.
This picture was meant to be a cute picture of the kids with Bubba while we were hanging out in our room shortly after Scout was born, but as you will be able to see, the picture just looks…well, awkward. ;D
AND…if that isn’t funny enough for you, try out my father in law holding his grandson, Scout. He looks like a deer caught in headlights.
Hahahaha!! Sorry Earl!
Dear Karma, once again you win.
The very day after I had boasted about my wonderful vegetable garden, I awakened the next morning, to mole trails!!
Moles. I hate them.
These pesky rodents took out 2 of my lettuce plants and a pepper plant. Talk about lighting a fire underneath my butt.
I just stood there, overlooking my garden, mouth agape. I didn’t know what to do.
So what do you do when you need to know something? You google it.
BUT of course, you need magic fairy dust to get rid of these bastards because basically you have to hunt them or put a shovel at the end of their trail. You know, like in the cartoons? Supposedly they will run into them and kill themselves.
Really? That’s all I can do?
Any way, I was totally bummed and thought my plants were goners. I mean…I
don’t remember the moles being around last summer and all of a sudden
our yard is being ambushed by these buggers. We have tunnels going
So, I said a little prayer, and waited. Looks like God was listening because the moles have left my garden alone since then. Talk about divine intervention!
This whole fiasco reminds me of this verse:
Annnd…the picture I posted a while ago, that I thought was a baby possum, turned out to be a MOLE!! Kitty had killed it.
Good Kitty. ;D
I am having one of the worst cases of writer’s block that one can imagine. It sucks. And it doesn’t seem to be going away. So I am trying out the tried and true method of just sitting my achy butt down and putting fingers to keyboard. (Read: Or if you’re old school, pen to paper)
Annnd supposedly the words will begin to flow into a beautiful & genius piece of literary work…
I don’t think it is working.
But here is a picture.
A picture can speak a thousand words and since I can’t find any to say, maybe this picture will say it for me. 😉
Last year I began a vegetable garden and it failed miserably, which is an understatement. If it wasn’t the weeds that took over, then it was the pesky grasshoppers, and if it wasn’t the grasshoppers then it was the horrible drought Texas suffered through and if it wasn’t the drought, then it was the three months of 112 degree days.
Then there was the gardener herself who didn’t have a clue to what she was doing. (That’s me by the way).
So what is a girl to do after failing to an embarrassing degree?
Try, try again.
So here is an earlier picture of my NEW garden.
