Mommy Is Going To Cook Tonight

Today my sister had sent me a few receipts over the Internet that her and her family seemed to enjoy, and I find them to be very different then what we usually eat in my household. My son and I are going to go shopping for the ingredients we need to make something new and tasty that the entire family will love to eat for dinner, plus I think I need to do more cooking, I’ve been slacking in that area lately.

By the way I do love my husband’s attempt in “Southern cooking”, but I do think it’s time for mommy to step in and take charge of the kitchen once again, and have a part in sitting down with the family and smiling and enjoying our delicious new food experiences.

Full bellies before it’s time to go to bed of course, I always say, or you wont have a good night’s sleep. My son had told me that he wants to help mommy cook dinner tonight, which by the way I think is an absolute great and fantastic idea. I can’t wait to try out our new food creations, and hopefully we won’t burn the kitchen down in the process!

Eminence Speakers I Like It Spicy!

People that know me well, know that I do intend like it spicy. Life is just too short to take things too seriously. Music is one of the best things that help entertain me as well as keep me healthy, mentally and physically.

One of the best things my parents did for me was to keep me playing some type of musical instrument and having our next door neighbor willing to teach me on any of the various instruments that I was interested in learning. Mrs. Crandell played just about any instrument and had a great attitude about life and music that she passed along to numerous neighborhood kids through out the years.

Piano was the first thing that I wanted to play and I figured that if I could play the piano it would make the learning of any other instrument an easier task. After I had a decent understanding of the piano and was feeling pretty secure in my self I started with the weekly guitar lessons next door, using her kids electric guitar until I knew I was going to continue and then she would encourage my parents to go ahead a purchase an electric guitar all of my own.

That guitar and the eminence speakers made a huge difference in my life from that point on. One day I might buy another guitar but not any time soon. There are so many types of guitars on the market these days, I wouldn’t even know where to start.

A Day at the Pool

Today was the perfect day to go to the pool. Everyone slept in a little late this morning. We didn’t get back from the fireworks until nearly midnight and everyone was wired up from all of the excitement of all of the wonderful displays that our local recreation center produced this year, in celebrating the 4th of July.

Happy 4th of July America

Once the house started waking up and everyone had fed their face with some type of nourishment from my fully stocked kitchen. I went shopping yesterday and spent a fortune on items to take with us to the show, things like beer, wine, wine coolers, sodas, Gatorade, bottled water, chips, dips, crackers, cookies, fruits, well you get the point. So the kitchen is now over flowing with munchies that should last all week-end long, maybe.

Anyway, we decided that today was the first nice day that we have had in a while so we packed up all of our swimming pool gear and took off for a day in the sun and water fun. It was great, fun was had by all, even Hubby came along this time, which is rare these days, and now I’m totally beat and sun burned and ready for bed.

By the way, a belated Happy Independence Day to America, may God Bless us all!

My Sister Drives Me Crazy!

My sister is a lot older than me, so we were never really close while growing up. She got married right away and moved out of the area with her new husband, who my parents could not stand. So I have not really had the advantages of being sisters with her.

But now that we are older, I was hoping we could rekindle a relationship. After all, we are family. But it can be days, if not weeks, before she returns my phone calls and emails. I hope it is because she is just very busy with her family, but I wonder if she just doesn’t even want a sister in her life?

Girls Night Out!

I was thinking that tonight being a Friday night, that I was going to stay home and watch a little bit of TV and relax. Well one of my girlfriends from work had called me a few hours ago and wants me to go out with her to a nice bar/restaurant with two other girls from work.

Well I haven’t had a girls night out in a long time, I had no idea what to wear, so I asked my daughter to help me pick something out to wear that’s casual but formal. As soon as we got to the mall, she dragged me into an awesome store with beautiful night out outfits all around. I wanted the whole store, but my daughter within 2 minutes of searching brought me a beautiful baby blue night dress with Rhine stones that went around the neck, and my first thought was “Yeah right! Maybe 20 years ago!” But I went into the dressing room and tried it on, and come to find out I wasn’t disappointed at all.

I looked in that mirror and felt 25 again. When we came home, I tried it on and did my makeup and hair and went out to show my family I got a response I wasn’t expecting from my husband. He had said how beautiful I looked, and wished me to have a great time with the gals, and my daughter was smiling like she was proud, and my son was just plain out and out surprised.

Now I’m off to a great night out and enjoying the company of 3 wonderful girls whom I never thought would even talk to me, just for the fact that they are much younger and I’m much much older. But I do believe Ill have a wonderful time tonight, and maybe get a few good friends out of it too.
