Sublime to Ridiculous


My life has gone along a fairly normal course up until now. I have been taken over by a file on my computer. Sure I know what you are thinking that happens to every one on occasion.Usually you go into that file and clean out all out dated information and the world is back in balance once more. Today I realized that I have a burgeoning file where there is no hope. I have come up against the proverbial 'rock and a hard spot'. I want to taste every recipe in that file. I don't want to delete any of the tasty sounding culinary delights. So what is the problem you say. Cook your way through the list and once again my life will be in balance. I can't! If I did 1) I would have more food that I, myself could eat in a year 2) I just want a taste, 3) I am in a lifestyle of very low sodium and no refined sugar and these recipes do not fit those criteria. A problem of gigantic proportions. Oh! What should I do, to eat or not to eat that is the question. After pondering for what seem like many hours, in actuality is was several nano seconds I have decided to do----- nothing. Of course I will add another tasty sounding recipe soon, oh well. Maybe I will just will it to my grandchildren and let it become the burden of another generation. 8^)

Have I mentioned?


Have I mentioned how much I dislike being sick? One of the things that I miss when I am sick are the sunrises. I love to watch the sun slowly creep it's way up in the eastern sky. I sit in the porch swing waiting,confident in the fact that tomorrow it will rise again with new variations of tones and hues. It is a great way to start the day.

Cloudy Days


Today is one of those days where it is hard to get up in the morning. I heard the wind raking through the wind chimes on the porch. Hard wind means generally one thing, thunderstorms are on there way. Let the Dynamic Duo out before the rains hit. The rains came hard and all at once followed very closely by the roll of thunder. This will go on until noon-ish it is a great excuse to knit and that is what I will do, while listening to the rain and waiting for the next flash of light. I love rainy days in the Ozarks.

Pathetic


I have been pathetic about blogging. Trying to turn over new leaf. We will see how it goes. Today I would like to introduce the "Dynamic Duo". They came here when they were only 8 weeks old. Someone deserted them (hopefully it will never happen again to me) and I never found homes for them. So here I go. I will try and at least post once a day. (Promises, promises)
