    Thank you 🙏🏼
    My son and I got our recent Covid results back and they were negative again. SO now he feels like bragging. We went to the place with worst Covid numbers in the world (South Dakota) and we did not get it. Not that its anything to brag about…..we just did the basics…wore our mask and carried our hand sanitizer around with us…[Read more]

  • Your meal sounds delicious. As for vegetables…..I made Brussel sprouts with a balsamic vinegar glaze and bacon. Not enough veggies I know…but I had limited space and time.

  • Those pictures do look amazing…..I found them online. Ha! I posted this the day before Thanksgiving so I hadn’t cooked my meal at the time so I found pictures of what I was having.
    Your ham sounds delicious. I only bought a small boneless ham to cook because of the big Prime Rib we were also cooking. The ham came with a berry glaze which I…[Read more]

  • Hi Friend πŸ˜‰
    Happy Thanksgiving to you.
    Like you….we are giving “Turkey” a break too. It’s Prime Rib here….. big enough to feed an army and there are only 4 of us. It may take some time…but it should be eaten up by Christmas. Ha! Oh…and a small ham.
    You enjoy your day….. 🤗
    🥧 🍗

  • I notice it too. But I also know…..after opening the car door during 40 mph winds in South Dakota I watched 3 mask take off from inside the car fly down the parking lot never to be seen again by me at least. Sometimes its not intentional….but I felt horrible about it.
    I also keep a box of gloves & Mask in the car and I always make efforts…[Read more]

  • I didn’t put a Turkey picture because we are not having Turkey. We decided….no one really likes Turkey so why are we cooking it? How will Thanksgiving be at your house?

    • That looks fantastic! We didn’t have turkey either. I’ve had everything from Chinese food to pizza for Thanksgiving over the years, haha. This year we had a wonderful ham with a cherry merlot glaze (yum), a green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, and pecan pie.

        Your ham sounds delicious. I only bought a small boneless ham to cook because of the big Prime Rib we were also cooking. The ham came with a berry glaze which I did not make. My sons are not into too much flavorings added to their meat. As for sweet potatoes….I only made one because my sons don’t eat it. Also only made a small serving of cranberry sauce since they also don’t eat that. I make it fresh with a granny smith apple and fresh orange zest and juice. It is so good…..but since no one in this household eats it besides me I just make a small amount.
        We had brussel sprouts with a balsamic glaze and bacon…twice baked potatoes with 4 types of cheese in them….and bacon bits. Sausage chest nut stuffing……and pies I ordered. Oh…and one of my favorite desserts….cranberry cream salad. Which really isn’t a salad but it has pineapple, coconut….fresh cranberries…marshmallows and whipped cream. It’s addicting.

        We use to have giant get togethers but my parents retired and moved away and my siblings moved to be closer to them and its just my little family here. I have relatives scattered around California but I do enjoy the holidays with my sons. Every other year it seems we have been making reservations and eating out and coming home to pies I made or ordered. Our holidays seem to evolve every year. And until I have Grandchildren and if the pandemic gets under control I may just take a cruise next year.

        Glad you a wonderful with your family.

  • I returned home from South Dakota/ Nebraska on Saturday but didn’t wake up until late Sunday and was gifted this beautiful Sunset. I think I mentioned that my son who returned from England wanted to visit my […]

    • Wow Monica, I’m glad you’re safe and sound now. Sorry for the loss of your uncle. Thank you for sharing your sunset!

      • Thank you 🙏🏼
        My son and I got our recent Covid results back and they were negative again. SO now he feels like bragging. We went to the place with worst Covid numbers in the world (South Dakota) and we did not get it. Not that its anything to brag about…..we just did the basics…wore our mask and carried our hand sanitizer around with us every where we went. And depending on the size of the place and how many people were in a store…we doubled our mask.
        So far….5 of my cousins contracted Covid in South Dakota and 2 ended up in ICU.

  • Funny thing is…..without a planet to survive on ….it doesn’t matter what any party wants or thinks. It’s going to be all about survival and possibly the human race dying off.

  • YES! It can feel like a bunch of craziness. And YES….personal growth is such a beautiful thing.
    I always believe….we need to live our best lives. Be the best people we can be.
    I do my best to keep an open mind to everything. I do my best to understand different trains of thought.
    And you are right….we only have control of our lives…[Read more]

    Ain’t that the truth.

  • I just heard Georgia and Arizona called it for Biden and North Carolina for Trump. I don’t know if those numbers are going to stick but from listening to all kinds of statisticians/number gurus that it is […]

    • It’s a bunch of craziness, isn’t it? I do agree with you about personal growth – it’s the best thing we can be focusing on right now. We may not be able to control the outer craziness but we do have control over our personal lives.

      • YES! It can feel like a bunch of craziness. And YES….personal growth is such a beautiful thing.
        I always believe….we need to live our best lives. Be the best people we can be.
        I do my best to keep an open mind to everything. I do my best to understand different trains of thought.
        And you are right….we only have control of our lives and depending on how old your children are…their lives too. Ha! So I pretty much agree with all you said πŸ™‚

    • I would love to see the Green Party be ascendent. But right now we have to fight the “republican versus democrat” game. Maybe when more people wake up about the environment, the Green party will have its chance.

      • Funny thing is…..without a planet to survive on ….it doesn’t matter what any party wants or thinks. It’s going to be all about survival and possibly the human race dying off.
        And IDEALY we illuminate parties all together and just have people running on their own ideologies. And if that can not happen any time soon…we need at least 7 different parties.

  • Ok…..I get it now. Yes…being forgiving and understanding can be difficult for many people. I understand where you stand. LOVE the way you invested your stimulus.

  • My sister made Potato Soup the other night for dinner and it brought back so many memories of when I was little. I was so young that I didn’t realize we had potato soup a few nights in a row from time to time […]

  • I really don’t watch or follow Trevor Noah….don’t find him THAT funny. But once in a blue moon I crack up. With this video…I actually learned a bit of history.

  • Where have I been? This is the first I am hearing about this story. As you can tell…..I do live in my own little world..HA!

    You made an Error up in Paragraph 3. It’s not Biden who is suggesting people should not fear the little boys….it was Trump.

    As you know…I don’t care for Trump or Biden…..but I did vote for what I think is the…[Read more]

  • Well….I guess that was my round about way of saying that.
    My thought process can be so confusing sometimes.
