Sometimes you just need


You time. Never feel guilty about indulging. Self-care is so important and it doesn’t have to cost a penny.

No guilt, be happy


I was just writing a comment in a private group on FB. It’s a whole bunch of women talking about dating dilemmas, strategies, the good, the bad, and the ugly lol.

I think I’ve been through every dating scenario possible and I am finally, at age 48, beginning to figure it out. Well, hopefully lol.

I came to the conclusion that you have to throw yourself out there and try everything. Start by asking yourself, what is it that you are looking for? Another few things you have to think about are, is the timing right to get back into the dating scene? Do you still think about your ex? Lastly, and most importantly, are you happy with yourself at this present moment?

I found that unless I have myself together and that the rest of my life was fine tuned, I couldn’t date. Are you happy in your current state of life? That is so important. If something is off-key, then how could you possible date or go into a relationship with an open mind?

Right now I have never been happier with my current dating situation. If it works for you, go for it.

Have a great Saturday everyone!

 

Don’t give up


Never ever give up on anything you are out there trying to get. Whether it’s happiness, a job, love, a house, a car, a dream…..don’t give up.

You are reading this because it was meant to be. I believe in signs. I know it sounds corny but it’s true. I follow and believe in all the signs I stumble upon.

This is your sign and your push to keep going. Don’t stop.

You can achieve anything you put your heart and mind to. It is so possible it’s not even funny.

You want that dream job? Don’t stop thinking about it. Don’t stop dreaming about it. If you believe in yourself and your goal enough, it will happen. Have faith.

I know because I am living proof that dreams come true. There is still a little critiquing that I have left to do but ultimately I have achieved my goal. Now I’m on to my next goal….. eh it will happen but the time isn’t quite right yet.

I have the home of my dreams, the job that I’ve always wanted, the happiness that I never thought was possible. Boom.

It happened because I truly believed it was going to happen.

Please, don’t stop pursuing your dreams. It’s going to happen.

 

 

 

Large Crowd Summer Menu Cookout


Happy belated 4th of July!

Sometimes it’s hard to put together a menu suitable for a large crowd. You’ll have your gluten free guest, your guest sensitive to spices, another guest who cannot tolerate garlic, and your no onions please guest. Oh and your no beef guest.

So whenever my sister and I put together our menu for the next family function, we have to take all these request into consideration. And, we love it. It gives us an opportunity to get a gathering together fast and be creative.

Remember, more isn’t always necessary because people tend to have a few cocktails beforehand and also nosh on the chips and whatever else precedes the main course.

Here is our typical summer bbq menu:

We usually start with a platter of olives and pickles, chips, celery and ranch dressing. On occasion there will be buffalo chicken wing dip, cheese and crackers, etc.,

Next, here comes the burgers, hot dogs, sausage patties, sausage and peppers, and bbq chicken. Then we have the pasta salad, corn on the cob, and deviled eggs! Yum. I’m getting hungry just writing about it.

Lol well anyway this is just a gist of some menu items you can put together pretty quick for a large crowd.

Here are some pics of our family. I hope you all had a safe and happy 4th.

It was a great 4th of July. We even camped out back in the Yert. The boys slept in their hammocks. I’ll have to try that one night. They said it was wicked comfortable.

Oh geez I almost forgot the most important part of the menu lol, the adult beverage we fell in love with. Saranac’s Moscow Mule ginger beer. If you can get your hands on one, try it. They are so good ice cold. It’s really a great summer drink.
