there was a nice gentleman at the store
helping with the sale of the pumpkins and he took
such joy in finding this BIG one for me,
that I just couldn't say "No" to it.
They were all the same price, so what the heck.

to be eaten on a day I'd rather play than cook.
"Thaw, Heat, and Eat".
Sure hope the "Sloppy Joe Police" don't come to take me in!
Two pasta dishes, ready to go into the freezer.
Think Lasagna, except with the corkscrew pasta I had on hand, rather than lasagna noodles. I used my favorite type jarred spaghetti sauce, ricotta and parmesan cheese, etc. etc.
I should have a "Guess what this is?" contest -
cause this lame photo really leaves one to wonder.
That's what it is - "pie crust", the type you make in the food processor. I only made my own because if our arteries are gonna clog I want them to clog with butter, rather than Crisco. I don't know why I have a preference, but I do. I'll use this when I make a quiche.

Mister and I are both trying to find that something special that will make us feel happy again. These are difficult days. Yesterday he said we were "not going to sit home" like we did last Saturday. So we got in the car and he just began to drive - no thought of where we were actually going...We ended up in Leesville, La, about 3+ hours from home. Ironically, Fort Polk Army Base is located there. This is where Mister took his basic training for the National Guard many years ago. We drove to the entrance of the camp and were given a visitor's pass and allowed to go onto the base. It turned out to be a very interesting, restful, day. I had never been there and Mister had not been there since he left way back when.
Our life continues to be very bizarre.
Most days bring a new 'punch" of some type.
Bad news knocks us down, but it doesn't seem to
keep us down quite as long as it did at first.
Most of you write happy blogs and I enjoy
reading them, especially since my life is
to the left of happy at the moment.
I take joy in being able to live vicariously
through your sunny days.
Bloggy ((HUGS)) to each of you
and a special thank you for staying with
my blog, even when it is not a happy read.

to celebrate a BFF's birthday.
to celebrate "people"!
I know it sounds "cheesy",
but everyone who is special to us,
in any way, should be celebrated, IMO,
and birthdays are the perfect time to do this.
Birthdays are not just for kids, ya know.
people God has gifted our life with?
I can't even imagine!
And who doesn't enjoy being celebrated?!
enjoying the birthday celebration
that I forgot to take a photo.
you know who you are.
(she reads my blog!)
Got a favorite way to celebrate birthdays
or a favorite birthday memory?

There are no happy campers here.
I want my money back.

but I felt I had to disclose this since
I blog about my life
and this is where I am in my life
at this moment in time.
