About Me

My photo
I'm a bit silly & I like to make people laugh. People tell me I'm rather loud but I am usually quiet until I get to know you. I love life, I live life to the fullest & treat others as I would like to be treated.

Is Mother Nature Confused?

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here...but something is missing!! Now please, pretty pretty please, with sugar on top...Mother Nature...WE NEED SNOW!!!!!! I think she might be confused as to where we are located but in the Upper Peninsula of MI we are supposed to have snow...and lots of it. We've been walking around in t-shirts for crying out loud. We should be bundled up in hats, mittens & scarves, tromping through the snow, drinking hot chocolate on a cold winters night...not drinking lemonade!!! So, if it's not too much to ask.... Jack Frost, Mother Nature, Kris Kringle, Frosty The Snowman, Rudolf & all you other snow loving people, let's get together & demand some white fluff!! Don't make me staple fake snow on my rooftop & shred Styrofoam for my front lawn this year!!

The new 'do'

I finally did it!! Made a big change...cost me about 6-8 inches but I LUV it!! I feel quirky, sassy & a smidgen sophisticated. I'm just sad it wasn't long enough & that they do not accept dyed hair for donations to Locks Of Love...=(

Christmas tree lights shimmering, fresh out of the oven cookie & a glass of milk....that was my night last night. I totally tried a new recipe that I found at a fellow bloggers page & knew I had to try it out. With only 4 ingredients needed how could I not try it out? You can find the recipe here: http://down---to---earth.blogspot.com/2009/11/ridged-ribbon-dishcloth-and-biscuit.html and below :

1 pound butter
1 can condensed milk (390-400 gram)
1 cup sugar
5 cups wholemeal self raising flour (or plain flour and baking powder)
toppings like choc chips, smarties, jam, cinnamon and sugar

cream butter and sugar, add condensed milk. stir in flour. roll into balls and flatten. top with choc chips etc, or thumbprint and add jam for jam drops.bake at 350 degrees for approx 10 min until golden brown. cool on racks

It makes 6-7 dozen delicious cookies...or about 5 dozen if you like em big =) The possibilities with this very simple recipe excites me. I foresee chocolate chips, walnuts, toffee chips & who knows what else I will put into this recipe.

Change of plans

So, there's been a change of plans. To make a long story short, Ken did not take the job after all. There were a few things we needed answers to & he was to be reimbursed his plates for the semi...and well, the owner didn't see that he had to. So, Ken's still truckin along for the time being. Just sucks cuz he should be starting the new job tomorrow & just knowing the dishonesty of people eats at my inner happiness.

On another note, we went to a Halloween party last night sponsored by the Lion's Club. Had a much needed good time with some pretty fab friends!!
