Across The Miles

Tonight was our annual family Christmas gathering. It was fun, as usual, but we were missing one key person. My mother, Dorothy. She lives several hundred miles north of us and has been unable to make it home for the holidays for the last couple of years. We get to see her throughout the year, but it would be nice to have her here at least for Christmas. Maybe she plans it that way so she can avoid things like the following, LOL! I have a video option on my digital camera, so we decided to make this little family video to send to her this year. Merry Christmas, Mom! I love you!!

scroll down and pause the music player then scroll back up for the video

Sandee Needs

My sister Krinkle copied this idea on her blog, so I thought I'd give it a go. If you go to Google and type in your first name and needs (ie: Sandee needs) and hit enter, you will find some interesting things. "Sandee" didn't come up with many, so I used the alternate spelling "Sandy" and had a few interesting results. Here's what I found:

Sandee needs.......

  1. all your prayers right now (don't know what to think)

  2. to grow up (better than growing out)

  3. heartworm treatment (for the cats?)

  4. a roadster (Hell yeah!)

  5. to increase practical courses rather than theoretical courses (should I go back to school?)

  6. a haircut (mine is getting a little scraggly)

  7. to be prepared (for what?)

  8. a shot at glory (was I suppose to be famous?)

  9. a (loving, good, great, new, foster, caring) home (this came up a lot!)
    and the last one you ask? I was dared by Krinkle to post this, so don't judge!

  10. to fuck ASAP (anyone in particular?)
    Here's proof:

    My Favorite Quote

    Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things,
    but just look what they can do when they stick together.

    Do you think in a past life these two people could have been twins?

    I was tagged by my sister Michelle to post the 4th picture from the 4th file of the My Pictures folder on my computer. Which hard drive do I choose? I chose My Book and this is what I came up with:

    What I'm thankful for myspace graphic comments

    It's that time of year for reflection and to acknowledge the things we are thankful for. Here are a few things I am thankful for.

  11. My family - thank you for being there when I need you.

  12. My friends - same goes for you, too. Thanks for listening.

  13. My job - most days.

  14. My health - taking care of a couple issues right now, but overall, still good.

  15. My children - ok they're cats, but they're still my children.

  16. Music - couldn't imagine life without it.

  17. I'm sure there's much more, but it would take all day to list and I don't want to bore you.

    YUM! myspace graphic comments

    I slaved all day Wednesday to make pies for Thanksgiving dinner. Here's part of what I went through.

    **start with the pastry**form into nice round ball**make sure it fits**

    **fold in half*****fold in half again*****place in pie plate**

    **unfold*****tuck under edges*****flute the edges**

    **prick with fork***close up shot***HOT 450 degree oven**

    **bake for 10-12 minutes*** The end result***

    I was too lazy to take pictures of the filling process so you just get to enjoy the end result. Yum! I actually had time to make the pastry from scratch this year. Had a little left over so I rolled it out, sprinkled it with sugar and cinnamon and baked. Forgot how flaky and yummy my recipe is.

    Powerful Women's Motto

    Live your life in such a way that when your feet hit the floor in the morning,
    Satan shudders & says...
    "Oh shit....she's awake!!''

    Laugh If You Must!

    After reading Michelle's blog and seeing her "yearbook" herself, I thought I'd have a go at it. You can do it, too here.

    ***1950 ********** 1960 **********1966 ***

    ***1978 ********* 1982 ********* 1984 ***

    Class of 1985
    (this is my actual yearbook picture)

    These were the years I was having an identity crisis (LOL)
