Mint Juleps

I'm trying my hand at Disneyland's non-alcoholic version of the Mint Julep. Supposeday, if you request one at the Cityhall of Downtown Disney, you will get one! :) I didn't have any creme de menthe, so I took a large bunch of mint (I grow my own), crushed the leaves and boiled in some water for about 20 minutes. I removed the leaves and add the mixture to at big pot of water (about 4.5 cups), added 3 cups of sugar and let it get to just about boiling. Now, I'm letting it cool. Once it is, I can refrigerate it and add about half a cup to a pitcher of water and some lemon/lime extract. Should be good! I need to make some ice to go with and a leaf on the cup. :) A good warm day drink for everyone. :)

Had a nap

Feeling better! I forgot to dry my hair this morning and got a headache. Happens EVERY time! lol At least I know I'm predictable.

Need to do a few things but want to sit for 5 more minutes...

Nearly done with both posters for the VBS and then they're off tonight for set up. I'll be working on the tarp for the background scene with my art team. Should be good!

It's too bad I fell asleep...missed some sunshine. Oh, well. :) Glad there is some warmth and rain.

I was feeling blah about the upcoming surgery but feel better now. I guess I was grumpy. There was a lot of medical stuff to go over yesterday and I was overwhelmed by it all, I guess.

Well, I'm off to gather supplies, take care of the kiddos and breath a bit. Oh, and glad that my eldest's teacher was all right w/the animal project (L. forgot to tell me about, apparently!) lol!

Oh, the gore

I really don't like doing blood work but I had to for my upcoming surgery. I thought it was going to be 1 vial, perhaps, but it turned out to be 5. Now, I feel sort of blah like. I hate all of this and if I think about everything at once, it will not be a good feeling and way too overwhelming. So, I will think of it on a day-to-day basis. This helps me quite a bit, let me tell you.

My mom is helping over here. I just hope she doesn't get overwhelmed in the whole thing. I just hope I recover normally and get through all of this well. That's all I can ask and pray that it goes smoothly. I'll give it to God, as the saying goes, and not stress out (too much). Did I mention my mom is a great worrier? She worries so much it makes me nervous. So, hopefully, she'll calm down and let me forget about everything and not be all anxious.

Anywho, I'm worried about my brother...he has some sort of stomach flu. I hope he clears up soon and all. He thinks he ate too much plus a migraine.

I need to do some art stuff to get my mind off of everything. I also feel a little sad that my fave show, "Ghost Whisperer" isn't coming back next season. At least there is the "Medium" show. I hope there are some good comedies or else some decent supernatural shows (less gore, however).

One thing about having this operation is my mom is closer to leaving back home...which makes me very sad. :( I sort of want her to stay, or stay longer but she can always visit us again! So, I will focus on that.

Have a great evening!

Rainy day

I love the rain when it's this warm! It feels like spring and oh, so wonderful! :) It does, however, make for restless kids syndrome. They are bouncing off the walls. Thankfully (I think), they pulled out the tent and are playing with this. This is a first...I usually set up our tent and they are becoming very independant. I'm going to have to watch out.

Tonight, I'm making meatballs. My mom gave me a basic recipe, 1 cup milk, some bread mushed in the milk, some turkey meat, and Italian spices. Place on a pan and bake with olive oil. I added extra milk/stuffing and parmesian cheese. I think it's going to be good...and it does smell really good! :)

The dogs were really crazy today. They have restless doggie syndrome from all this rain (it poured yesterday)...so we are all sort of bouncing off the walls. I even cleaned out the 3rd floor a bit and let the kids play up there. I also slightly twisted my ankle but that's part of the risk, I guess. There is SO much to do up there...it's like walking through a forgotten time capsule of stuff we have grown through the last 8 yrs. Amazing. And so many dead bugs! YUCK! So, I've been cleaning and found lots of material to donate to church. I think I might have a yard sale to clear up some of the last baby items. Amazing how time flies.

Oh, these meatballs smell good.

I've been working on several things to list on eBay. Mostly, Halloween related...and I want to finish some ideas for the 4th of July. For some reason, this year I actually made an American flag garland for my tree! It looks really cute. I'll take a pic and post that soon.

Besides all of this, I'm working with a great bunch of people on the VBS project. I think it's going to be really cute and the energy is great with everyone working together. Such a relief to be around positive people!

The only apprehensive thing is the surgery coming up. I wasn't nervous about it, really, but now I'm starting to get slightly anxious. But I will focus on the recovery and not anything else. It helps to have my mom here and lots of loving people. I feel blessed by so much, so I shouldn't worry.

I just wish I could make our new doggie, Penny Olive, a raincoat and some dresses. I measured her and she is about a medium size. My mom said they have actual patterns for dog clothing! I was amazed. I would love to find a sailor outfit for Mr. Nelson and something sweet in this category for Penny Olive. I hope my kids won't feel neglected...I'll have to make them some sweet things too. :)

Love to you all! Have a great week!

Rice Krispies sort of day...

It's cold and chilly...thank goodness, we sat outside when the sun was out earlier or we would have been stuck in the house all day. I got a small chill from damp hair and the rain pouring in. I curled up for a "power" nap and Miss Penny came in and curled up on my knees. What a great heating pad! I love this dog!

I trimmed Mr. Nelson's hair...really, really short. It was part being matted and part, I let the electric shaver get too close. Oh, well. It's just right for summer. Plus, he was panting so much yesterday when we were in the warm car yesterday. I had to turn up the air conditioner.

I'm trying to get some pics of Miss Penny. She is shy and Jon was trying pick her up, but she started getting scared and hiding. Poor baby. I'll try again, this evening. I can hardly wait to make her some outfits! We are thinking of all sorts of things for her. I might have to pick up a new raincoat to match Mr. Nelson's, what with all this rain!

In the meantime, I've been working on the VBS posters and getting a late gift for my sis/bro-in-law finished up. I can make this rain work and do some art stuff, without worrying about working in the yard for once.

Tomorrow is the last episode of "Lost". My mom's fave show and I can tolerate it. I find it a bit interesting and it's fun to watch people who are into it and their excitement.

The one annoying thing, artwise, is I'm out of paper clay. I used the last bit of it for some sculptures and now I need to get a new supply. It would be a nice day to do that too.

Jon made the best lunch...scrambled eggs and fried potatoes. Very filling and comforting. I'm thinking of rice krispies for the kids and us. I hope I have enough rice cereal. We could make chocolate chip cookies but it's a lot of work. I feel sort of tired (trimming Nelson, gave Jon a hair cut, scrubbed all the kids, housework and laundry/vaccuming up dog hair). Yep, I'm waiting on my coffee to recharge me (plus, a spoonful of peanut butter).

I have to photography Miss Penny and some artwork. I love the sign I made and want one for me now! :) Hope you all have a good weekend! Love and good thoughts!

Of grass and keeping up appearances

There should be a law saying it's all right to have long shaggy grass and not to worry about what everyone else is going to think. But as it is, my neighborhood at least, has a mow your grass attitude or risk getting a hairy eyeball stare from someone. I understand that having a "neat" looking lawn will mean less people trotting around your piece of ground and throwing junk in it. However, I really like the longer grass and the freedom not to get a splitting headache every time it is mowed. This is what happened when Jon took 2 days to mow (1 for the back yard and the next day, the front). Too much dust/grass/gas stink. Ugh. I'm having headaches/dizzy feeling and nausea, again. Hopefully, this will go away soon. I even started to think I was allergic to my dogs.

Yes, I said dogs! We have a new arrival, a puggle! She is part pug and beagle. Very sweet and gentle. Thankfully, I'm 99% sure it's the grass that is irritating me (plus, I've been going on more walks and I think the pollen is a bit too high...I'll have to go to the gym). We have named her Penny (previously known at Baby). We really like her and my gals adore her. They are excited to make her outfits and paint her toenails (sorry Mr. Nelson). It's nice having a female dog as you can do a lot more dress up with her. Very cute! :)

I walked them (I know I should wear a mask or something) around the block and they were thrilled. They get along so well, I didn't think it would be that good, honestly. Of course, it's only the 1st day...1.5 days. We might make May 20th her birthday (if I can't find out her b-day from the vet). She seems very spring like and happy to be here. :) I'm glad we were chosen to be her new caretakers/family. :)

Pics will be coming soon. I also like that she reminds me of a fave TV show we would watch..."Wishbone". Do you remember that one? It was on PBS and was about a dog (beagle, I believe) that would solve historical mysteries. Really cute and sweet. She's not the same color, but her size and sweet attitude remind me of that character dog.

New things


Well, let me just start off by saying, we've been getting a lot, A LOT, of rain. It's beautiful and refreshingly warm, thankfully. Plus, it's making my yard so green! I love the feel of everything, even if it's a bit muddy out. Of course, the sun peaked out for a bit when Mr. Nelson and I went for a walk. It was really funny as Mr. Nelson was sniffing a bush and a squirrel came right up to us. I thought, oh, no...don't you dare think I'm a tree. It scurried away once it had a good look at me. Being tall can be fun at times! lol

Well, one of the many nice things having my mom visit us is sharing ideas. She showed me a lot of her fave blogs and one is all all sorts. I really like it and will have to add her to my blog list. Plus, I found another blog on allsorts called Sassy Radish. 99% about recipes and people who enjoy the food stuff. Yum! There is a really cute picture of her little boy (I assume) and reminds me of my kiddo. I really like the way she photographs everything too...very in the moment and use of natural light.

This reminds me of my dream I had. I dreamt I put my camera in a big clear glass of water and was very annoyed that I did this. I pulled it out and said, "Please work, I'll let you dry out, just work". I was very upset. In fact, I felt so sad about it, I'm laughing now as I know my camera is fine and was not put in water. I was really freaking myself out about that one.

Another new thing I'm trying out is working with my church. We're going to have VBS (vacation bible school) and I'm on a team to make the decorations. We went over things last night and got to meet some wonderful people. I think we'll be able to do a lot of fun stuff. I just wish my surgery was over and I could really relax and enjoy this. But everyone knows and is not pressuring me in the least. :)

I truly feel blessed to be around such wonderful people. It's a good feeling to know you're in the right place, finally, and not feel lost or alone. I have this vague memory of Charlie Chaplin staring inside a home, wishing he could be inside...that's how I used to feel about finding the right church. :)

Rainy Monday

I really don't care for that Carpenter song, the one about rainy days and Mondays being sad. Monday's are not that bad...certainly, the weekend is over and it's time to get into the typical work week, if you're typical that is. And rainy days are not bad when it's spring or summer. In fact, they are rather pleasant after a few days of sun. I started to think of this quote:

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. ~John Ruskin

Maybe I'm being a bit Pollyanna, again, but I do think there is something unique about each kind of weather. A poem came to mind:

Swift Things are Beautiful


Swift things are beautiful:
Swallows and deer,
And lightening that falls
Bright-veined and clear,
Rivers and meteors,
Wind in the wheat,
The strong-withered horse,
The runner's sure feet.

And slow things are beautiful:
The closing of day,
The pause of the wave
That curves downward to spray,
The ember that crumbles,
The opening flower,
And the ox that moves on
In the quiet of power.

Elizabeth Coatsworth

We had to learn that poem in 7th grade...and I'm very glad we did. When I read the words, I not only think of the poem but the class and my teacher, Mrs. McCain, I believe. I will have to look her up, just to see if I'm right.

I sometimes feel like there is something magical about words...just really catches my heart, at least. My mom claims I've always been sensitive...hopefully, that's a good thing! lol

I was a bit disheartened to learn two baby bunnies didn't make a cold snap we had a few days ago. I thought they were fine but there was a bit of smell and we had to lay them to rest. Poor dears. We're going to put flowers on their grave.

We want to get a dwarf rabbit (or two) to live with our guinea pigs. They would have to be dwarf (not to grow much bigger and squash or piggies) and I think I may need to make a bigger run for them all. I have a ping pong table down there and Maybe I'll sacrifice it for their cage...we shall see. We have a very large hutch in the garage but it's in the garage and we'd have to pull it out for Spring-late Summer usage. I wouldn't want my critters out in the winter, let alone overnight (raccoons, cats, possums, etc). My dad used to have an outdoor pigeon coop and they were constantly harassed/killed by possums and cats. He finally put in a cement floor and that solved 99% of the problem. Over here, that would be too costly and too cold. So, I'd rather we convert the other half of the basement into a pleasant area for my critters.

I have two more weeks till my surgery and then, I hope to recover and move on. I wish I had planned it sooner, but it is what it is.

I feel like things are really very good this year...surely, it's not perfect and I don't think I'd want perfection. Just doing something useful and active. I'm thinking of church, family, feeling blessed with so much love and friendship and best of all having my mom here to visit. Now, if she can only talk my dad into visiting and perhaps moving over here. It would be really crazy, fun and amazing.

On another note, Jon wants to go fishing...and suggested I try it out, again. I'm not keen on this, in the least. I feel immensely sorry for the worms and I don't know about catching/perhaps eating the fish we'd catch. It's one thing to buy it from the market and another to do the thing your self. Jon said he'd do it...but why do I doubt this? I wish I was more like Julia Child...did she do stuff like that? I remember something about lobsters (from the movie, Julie and Julia). I don't think I'd want to do that. Anyway, we shall see. I'd rather set up an easel and paint people fishing! :)

We had a celebration for my niece and sister-in-law...their birthdays. My brother-in-law made the best pizza from scratch! I have to get his recipe. I've been using a 1970's version of pizza crust from my Betty Crocker cookbook. I will have to try his, now.

Oh, and I've been baking like crazy! Oatmeal cookies, chocolate chip, quiche, casseroles with ham/veggies and so much more. I've made several pasta salads that were, if I do say so myself, quite good. :) The magic touch is olive oil and a balance of vinegar and some Italian seasoning. The kids are ambivalent about my attempts but all the adults go crazy for what I make. Success! Of course, my littlest guy will eat all I give him, usually.

Writing about all of this has reminded me, I need to start another casserole. This is the basic recipe I do: Powdered milk mixed with water, 3 eggs...mix together w/salt,pepper and Parmesan cheese...this makes a custard. Shredded bread in the greased (spray)casserole dish, pour on 1 can of creamed corn, 1 can of diced tomatoes, 1 can of ham, 1 can of mixed veggies or 2 cups of frozen veggies. Shredded cheese (cheddar) sprinkled on top. Pour custard over top and add more cheese. Bake at about 375 for 30-40 minutes. Let set for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy! :)

Mailing out a submission

I've finally packed a box of submissions for a design company I'm interested in. I hope it is accepted but if not, I'm submit more work. :)

I've been finishing up lots of projects and will probably be able to start some new things. It's a matter of getting it all done, I suppose. Today was a great day...full of finishing up's, finding some unfinished objects (UFOs) and so forth. Plus, I cleaned the bathroom and did lots of laundry, dinner, kid watching and hanging out with my mom. :) Good stuff.

The only downside of the day is, our bathroom. For some time, I had thought we had a "ghost". There was a mysterious water patch in the bathroom. Well, it's not a ghost but a leaky pipe, I suppose. I think it has something to do with the wax ring in the toilet...all disturbing, either way. I'm annoyed and we might have to get a plumber out to fix this annoyance before it becomes a disaster!

So, all in all, most of today was good. I even picked a huge bunch of grass for our piggie dears. They are happy. Plus, it's Friday!! Have a great weekend!

Glee-fully

It's funny. I never really watch TV, just Ghost Whisperer and Medium on Friday nights (if it's not too scary and the kids are asleep). However, when my mom came over to visit she started mentioning shows that she likes. My mom is sort of an encyclopedia of TV shows. She can name various story lines from way back...esp. Twin Peaks and shows that have a mystery bent to them. Lately, she's into the murder mysteries that crop up late at night...thus, inducing nightmares for me if I stay up and watch with her.

She does love comedies as well. I've enjoyed learning about a few like "In the Middle" and "Modern Family"...welcoming-ly humorous with a twist of wit. But the crème de la crème, has to be Glee. Mom had mentioned it and I was like, well, I don't know. Then, my sister was like, it's pretty good even with some annoying characters. And I was like, maybe I'll take a look. Then, folks at my church were all, Glee is great! And I was like, oh, let me see what the heck it's about. So, I watched (thankfully, a gal posted a hulu.com link on facebook). I was like, okay, that was pretty good...sort of tasty and filling. But whatever. Then, I kept watching and really, really liked the coach character (brass, a bit of sass and that inner turmoil stuff makes for some very good TV depth) and her love of Madonna, well, that just was perfect (I love Madonna!). Now, I want to get the first season on DVD. I tell you, my mom really does know good writing and will give something a chance to percolate. So, now I'm addicted to Glee. Great. I guess there must be a soundtrack with the singers on it, somewhere...

Joyful surprise!

Looks like I was totally wrong about the baby bunnies! They are very much alive and quite well. Jon went out to dig a grave for them but to his surprise, there was the mother rabbit and when he lifted up the hay, there were the baby bunnies blinking stirring in surprise! So, all is well and everyone is very healthy. I'm very glad about this as it was really depressing to think they didn't make it. Now, I can truly relish their beauty and and feel morbid about it (when I thought they were dead, they looked so sweet and beautiful). :)

God, Da--, Dog

These words hung in the air...why was he barking a frenzy...Harrison just threw up all over the floor and I'm trying to scoop it before Nelson, our dog, decided to give it a try. My mom ushers the dog out and he starts barking bloody hell. I'm trying to clean off an awkward ball toy in the sink and curse loudly to the window. Then, I hear the doorbell. The DOORBELL! ARGH! I think, no. My mom shakes her head...now, your in for it. Cursing like a sailor...argh! I yank some hair out of my pony tail and decide to go for the half crazed look...might as well fit my potty mouth.

I go the door and sheepishly look outside. Thank the stars, the person(s) left and only put a flyer in the door handle. I take it. It's for the Baptist church on 4th street. Oh, the shame.

********************************

Well, besides screaming out foul language the deacon came by from our church to help with a computer program...we didn't get it going but he was so nice to help spend an hour tryig. I feel even more badly. I need to remember to be patient and take a deep breath. I guess everyone does have an oopsie moment. I seem to be Queen of this.

****************************
I'm debating trying to make a pizza quiche. Will it work? Will it be worth the work? Will the children eat all the work? I do not know. Do I dare? I have tatter tots just in case and boca burgers.

***************************

One thing I'm feeling blessed to have is access to jazz. I feel like it's a total blessing...Julie London singing "Cry me a river". So nice and captures a bit of my earlier embarrassment.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Was supposed to go to an art opening in Hollidaysburg, Art4. But I don't know how I'm feeling now. Cleaning up kid barf sort of makes you just want to lay down

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We're finally getting car stuff taken care of, thank the Good Lord. It just seems to take so long and I just want it all finished for once. We've been procrastinating the whole inspection but it's a-okay. :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There was some family illnesses. Prayers are needed and I want to put a request for my dear family friend and adopted grandma, Joyce. She's in big need for prayer.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well, it's time to check on some dinner stuff and attempt the pizza quiche. There was a minor family complaint but so minor, it was sort of like, why even mention it? I just felt bad that it was even complained about and I was blamed.

Anyway, there was a tragedy in the small animal kingdom that reigns in my backyard. Some wild bunnies didn't make a cold snap or else their mama didn't come back to them for whatever reason. It makes me sad to think of it. I know there are many sweet buns out there but it's always sad to see such innocent frozen for all time. May God bring the back to be reborn as happy wild rabbits, safe in some woods far from danger.

Spring days with a touch of frost

I'm annoyed at the weather. I never really have felt like this before...as if the weather was a person and I feel like scolding her/him. But I do. Basically, I want my mom's experience in the East to be of a warm Spring and now, we get this cold, cold breath of what it feels like in Autumn. Annoying!

The funny thing about this type of weather is my eldest daughter and I had the same thought. Halloween costumes! Something about the chill made us think of October, Halloween and dressing up. This year, I am definitely going to dress up. I would love to be a giant chipmunk but I don't think I'd have enough fake fur (let alone want to buy all that fur). Lydia suggested a "Stop Sign". That has possibilites. lol

Anyway, it's cold and it's made all of us feel like we're 89 years old. I turned up the furnance...oh, well.

I was thinking about how kids deal with a lot these days. Way too much, if you ask me. It's a vicious cycle of trying to fit in, trying to be the best, trying to find the right path for your self, etc, etc. And there is quite a bit of misconception by some grown-ups that if you don't jump through certain hoops now, you'll never do it. I can see how this is some what encouraging for some kids/grown-ups, but for those late bloomers, what a totally yuck/snarky thing to say/do! I admit I'm a late bloomer. I didn't drive till I was in my 20's, I got married closer to 30, went to a community college and then to a 4 yr and graduated later and found my path (religion) later as well. You can't force these things, you just have to see what works for you.

Sometimes, there are blocks in the way and a person needs to find a way around those blocks. The thing is to keep trying and see what works. I guess I've been watching shows that are directed at kids (Glee) and it seems like there is so much pressure to fit in, to be something more than what we are. Honestly, the best thing a person can be is a friend. Now, I'm going to sound like an old f---, but one of the things I would do in HS was say hi to as many people in a day as I could. I just wanted to make kids feel good and oddly, it made me feel good too. Strange.

Anywho, it works wonders to be kind. It works and it makes a few folks feel like they aren't forgotten or lost in the wilds in our crazy world. Have a great day and don't forget to give a little smile to someone.

ready for Summer!


New Artwork!




Hi, there!
Lots of new artwork on my eBay site! Take a look! I've been painting owls, guinea pigs, mice and lots more! With Spring arriving, there is A LOT of inspiration. I'm thinking of doing a flower series and some other critter's as well. :)

Lots has been happening since my mom has come to help me out with everything. I've been teaching her how to use eBay as well and she's helping with childcare. When I have my surgery, it will be a big blessing having her here. Thanks, Mom!! :)

I've been doing more and more artwork and finishing a lot of stuff I had put away or had to wait for better weather...you can't use certain paints indoors or with bad ventilation. So, I'm glad to get things finished and moving on to new projects.



Not too much happening...just wish we'd have more sunny days! They really keep me motivated as well as getting things done. Speaking of which, I'm nearly down with a miniature art quilt featuring a snowy owl. I'm excited by it and really think it is coming out well. :) Have a great week!

Spring

I feel good right now. It was a really hot day for us with a warm buzz that made everyone sweaty and sticky (esp. me). Must be the air or something, as we finished up this busy day with a late evening walk. My feet are killing me and yet, I feel so relaxed and happy. Maybe it's having my mom here and just feeling good with all the kiddos and being home.

Jon is working tonight. Should be home soon. He's got an achy tooth, poor guy...might be a left over from his wisdom tooth. He has to have it removed.

Lately, I've been doing little bits of work here and there. Painting some sculptures and finishing up projects. Seems like I'm finishing up a lot lately (at last!). Just glad to have time to get it done. There are several things I'd like to finish.

I wanted to work on my owl quilt tonight but I feel really tired. We moved furniture around, cleand, scrubbed, danced in the heat for my sweet gal's 8th birthday. It was so fun having it in warm weather instead of cold and snowy as in early April it usually is.

We have lilacs about and the lillies of the valley are popping up everywhere. This is just heavenly and makes all the labor of preparing for a party all the more wonderful with these bits of nature. Plus, Jon found an actual wisteria bloom on our vine! This is a miracle as we have wondered and waited for over 7 yrs! :) It just seems like a blessing and an insight of good things to come.

Best of all was seeing my happy kids. Surely, they are a tad spoiled and hopefully tomorrow they will be back on Earth filled with a sense of contentment.

I know it's almost a cliche but I did sing this a few times when looking a my sweet dears...

(Tevye)
Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?

(Golde)
I don't remember growing older
When did they?

(Tevye)
When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he grow to be so tall?

(Golde)
Wasn't it yesterday
When they were small?

(Men)
Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Let the child within you, be able to play and embrace that joy.
Don't forget to see from their perspective, those little ones you are blessed to know and have in your life, and take a breath to understand.

Have a great weekend!

kisses
