It IS Friday!


I have had two dreams in the last week that referenced my lip balm.  How weird is that?

My husband has hurt his back, also has had to take his car into the shop this  morning.  I have a sore throat and a stuffy nose.  At least we’re on track for our normal vacation. 🙂

I am very excited.  I’ve printed out all of the itineraries and boarding documents.  I’ve collected all of my capris and shorts that I will be taking.  Today I will stop and get a prescription filled and pick up a few odds and ends that one needs when away from home.  Tomorrow after work I will go work out, then home to finish the workout then I will start packing!  Saturday will be all of the last minute things.  Making sure we have enough dog food and any things we may have forgotten.

Then Sunday we’re off!

I took my daughter to Yoga last night.  She did not like it, but it’s like guacamole; you can’t let the look of it put you off, you have to try it!  I’m happy she did.

I’ve been typing this on an off since about 8:30 am.  Everytime I’m sitting on hold I open it up. 

I’m really feeling like I’m getting a cold so I will add pick up Zycam and Airborne this afternoon.  I don’t know if it works, and don’t care.  Whatever I have to do to not get sick!  I’m listening on a large conference call and the call leader in Stockholm has a cold.

Well, it’s hours and hours later now.

Now I’m on lunch.  I think I’m going to take off and run to the drug store and take care of all of that stuff. 

Good bye!





Todays Soup

With a few minor changes, including the addition of red curry paste.


    * 1 onion, diced
    * 2 red bell peppers, diced
    * 3 cloves garlic, minced
    * 1 carrot, sliced
    * 1 can chickpeas (optional)
    * 4 tbsp olive oil
    * 1/2 tsp cumin
    * 1/2 tsp coriander
    * 1/4 tsp cayenne
    * 2 1/2 cups diced tomatoes
    * 1 cup coconut milk
    * 1 cup peanut butter
    * 1/2 cup vegetable broth
    * juice from 3 limes –
    * 1 tsp salt
    * 1/2 cup fresh chopped basil or cilantro –

Saute the onion, peppers and garlic in olive oil in a large pot until onions are soft, about 3-5 minutes.

Add the remaining ingredients, except for the basil and bring to a simmer. Allow to cook over low heat for one hour.

Transfer half of the soup to a blender and puree until smooth, then return to the pot. Add basil or cilantro and enjoy your coconut soup!

It’s cooking now.  It was fun to put together because there are so many ingredients that you just toss into a pot! 

This will be my last soup experiment for a few weeks.

Lap Dances For Haiti? Ohio Strip Club To Donate To Relief Efforts

“You know, just like everyone our hearts went out to Haiti and we were thinking ‘What can we do?” said manager Kenny Soprano.

When asked if he thought organizations would refuse the aid based on its source, Soprano shrugged it off. “Charity’s charity. Who’s to judge who and where it comes from?”




The family that dresses together…

Mother, Father and Child.  All wearing Pajamas pants for Sunday Grocery shopping.  I don’t get it.

How do I look?

I moved my computer from the living-room, to the no name back room.

How candy can make you feel better.

So I bought this bag of Sugar Free candy.  It’s green apple flavored. Num!
Except I went to open it and noticed something odd.

Do you see it?

That’s right there is a CVS Pharmacy Cough Drop in my Candy Bag!  And it looks dirty.  How weird is that?
