Happy Halloween


I hope your day is one big sweet treat!

Versus being out in the streets tonight, the kitties and I will be snuggled under the blankets doing what we do.

I don't get many trick or treaters in these parts but just in case, I do have candy in the candy dish. The good stuff too.

How about you and yours? Going out? Taking the little ones trick or treating? Costume party? Staying in too? Whatcha' got going on this fine fall night?

Peace and Love Peeps.

More than Condiments

I do survive on more than condiments. Really I do!

Here is my fridge after a trip to Costco Monday and the grocery store Sunday.

What did I add?

Light Soy Milk
OJ (no pulp...I don't do pulp by choice)
Yogurt (strawberry, blueberry, and peach)
Cheese (sticks and slices)
Hamburger Buns
Bella Mushrooms
Assorted Bell Peppers
Pineapple Spears
Fresh Spinach
Fresh Broccoli
Garlic Chicken w Pasta (frozen Bird's Eye)
Fresh French Green Beans
Snack Size Hummus
Continental Salad
MorningStar Sausage Veggie Patties
Red Potatoes
Turkey Sandwich Meat
Red Seedless Grapes
Butternut Squash
Multi-Grain Light English Muffins
Soft Taco size Tortillas
Jalapeno Cheese Bread Rolls
2 Liter of Pepsi

Why now and not before? I am home for more than a few days and this woman can not survive on condiments alone. Going out to eat is not good for every meal either. I feel better and do better when I have the healthy choices available.

If we were to peek in your fridge, what might we see?

Hey Brad, do you see your blackberry jam on top of the pumpkin butter? Soooo good.

Peace and Love Peeps.

Please Forgive Me

First off I hope y'all enjoyed the guest blogger post and more insight into my world. Next month we will have another guest blogger. It will be none other than Mars. There is no telling what things will be shared. I have a tiny bit of apprehension but it's all good.

Now you may be wondering why I am asking you to forgive me. The folks on the West coast should be just fine. My family in the South might be too but y'all on the East side of the country I fear will not be.

I only just mailed the Halloween cards this afternoon. Yup, I waited until the very last minute to finish them. Next time I will do them early versus waiting until the week before or rather the week of. I didn't want them to arrive too early and now, now they will most likely arrive late.

So I hope you can forgive me and enjoy the greeting just the same. They were made and sent with nothing but love and the best intention.

So, when you get yours, smile a little for me and know it was meant to arrive in time. Really.

Peace and Love Peeps.

~Let go Mo, Let GO!!!

Hello Everyone! You may know me as "Mel" in Mo's friend world. If you could oblige me for a minute, I would like to take over and give you a little more insight into the world of MO!!!

As we all know, or have gathered, Mo is a little obsessive-compulsive-Virgo-ish most of the time. This is shown in her detailed Blog photos of everything she eats, drinks and likes and dislikes. This brings me to my latest observation. This leads me to the latest detailed account...if you will...

Monica and I were looking at her neatly chronicled photo albums in her bedroom today. I had a great time making fun of her 90210 (Remember Brenda Walsh)bangs she had in the late 90's til 2001. Good times!!!

Then, as I was walking out of the bedroom I noticed, on her dresser, coin jars. But no, these were no ordinary coin jars.
I said "What the.....!"
Mo said "WHAT!"
I said "You are out of control!"

Ya see folks, most people do have coin jars. Most of us, when we get home...empty our pockets and coin purses and casually drop our bitty coins into our personal collection as we are walking by....not giving it a second thought. Then one day they add up, we go to the nearest Coinstar and CHA CHING...We cash in...and start over. MOST OF US!


NEEEEEEOOOOOOOH not Mo! She has 4 JARS, each designated for a certain coin value. (Note: evidence A,B,C & D)
So, this is what separates us from her! Unlike us, she walks into her house after a long day at work or on the road. Instead of casually dropping some coins into a collection jar... she lovingly removes the tops of all 4 jars and sorts out all of her change for the day, week, month. This fulfills all her O.C.D. pleasures and she feels right with the world....just this small act of organization.

I hope I am not alone in finding this to be a little off-putting....and HA-LAIR-IOUS! I find myself to be a reasonable person. I do love Mo to death but sister, "Let go of the control, Let go I tell you!"

Thank you for letting me interrupt your daily "Mo" programming. This was just a test. This was only a test.

Weekly Challenge #52


Can't seem to escape it.

Gotta' stay on top of it or else.

I run my handy dandy Swiffer over pretty much all surfaces at least once a week if not more.

What I don't do often enough is run it over the places out of my reach. I'd love to say I do it once a month but nope, the top of the fridge, the bookshelves, and the entertainment center tend to be neglected.

I also wouldn't pass the white glove test behind the tv or on the picture frames hanging on the walls.

So this week I'm challenging myself to break out the Swiffer Duster on those out of reach and often forgotten locations. I hope you decide to join me.

Peace and Love Peeps.

Creations for the Kiddos

I believe it is safe for me to post these as the intended participants don't read the blog, at least I don't think they do!
The black ribbon is for the boys. The orange and white polka dot ribbon is for the girls.
The stamp is from Rubber Soul.
The wiggly eyes were fun for me to play with. I hope the kids like 'em too.
I adhered them with mod podge, which caused a grrrr moment last night. Jasmine, in her quest for attention, decided to jump from her chair onto the table...right into the mod podge.
Yeah, that was fun to clean up. She's still shaking her right paw this morning. I don't think I got all of it out but hey, you play with the podge, you get the podge.
Peace and Love Peeps.

Trouble or Blessing?

We've talked about pho before.

I pho.

My girls pho.

We love us some pho.

I know some of you don't have pho in your neck of the woods and I feel for you.

It's good stuff.

We have an overabundance of choices to get pho in these parts. Literally from my place, in a mile radius, there are at least 7 establishments to choose from. And these are only the ones I know of.

I just got back from the final road trip of the week and decided to stop in for some pho tonight, even though I already had it once for lunch this week.

I brought my laptop in thinking maybe I would get to update a file or two. Then the inner voice that likes to speak to me said, "Wireless?"

Yup, not only are they open until midnight Sunday through Thursday and until 4:00 AM Friday and Saturday, they offer free wi-fi.

This seriously could be a baaaaaaaad thing or it is a blessing in disguise, especially since they offer more than just pho. The choices on this menu are endless. The prices are right. They leave you alone too, unless you ask for something.

I love when things work out like this. I'll be sure to let you know if these people start to recognize me on sight like they do at Thirsty Thursday and the sushi joint. Sometimes I am a creature of habit.

Seriously though, this could be dangerous. Dang, now this song is gonna be stuck in my head for the rest of the night.

I'm gonna go finish my #1 and get on home.

Peace and Love Peeps.

You know what this represents dontcha'?

A couple of destinations for the week. One out of state. All are day trips, which usually means looooooong days. The road, the radio, and I know each other well.

Will you keep the babies and me in your prayers/thoughts? They have a tendency to go a little bonkers when I leave them after spending quality time like we did over the weekend, especially Jasmine. I believe she suffers from separation anxiety. Or maybe I am just full of myself and think this is so.

Be well y'all. I'll {see} ya' soon.

Peace and Love Peeps.

Happy Monday

Happy Monday y'all!

If you were to look out my car window, this is what you'd see.

Rain drops.

Beautiful, on fire, fall foliage.

The wind chimes were blowing fiercely this morning too.

We are experiencing a typical fall Pacific Northwest day.

I'm bundled up in a pair of black slacks, my fashionable rain ankle boots, and a hooded cardigan topped off with a sparkly brooch to add sparkle to the gray accompanying the day.

What I would like to do is curl up on the couch with the love kitty under my fuzzy blanket, enjoy a warm mug of tea, and finish reading Eclipse but it is Monday and this means the start to the work week in my world.

Speaking of which, I need to get back to it.

How are things where you are? Cool, warm, sun shining, gray, windy...?

Peace and Love Peeps.

Weekly Challenge #51

This week's challenge is one I hope many of ya' are already doing.

It is simple to do.

It can be done pretty much anywhere, anytime, by anyone.

And best of all, in these trying economical times, it is free!

The benefits are numerous and include an increase in flexibility, improving your joints range of motion, improved circulation, promotes better posture, reduces stress, helps prevent injury, and it feels good.

Remember back in the day when you were a kid in gym class? Coach used to have you stretch. Well, that is the challenge this week.

Be your own coach.


I believe your body will thank you.

Peace and Love Peeps.

Poo. Word of the moment for a few reasons.

Cold sores. They suck. I have one. It arrived late yesterday afternoon. It hurts. It is ugly. It is large and in charge on my upper lip.

I have things I need to do in the public today. Know what this means? I do. People who don't want to look will not be able to tear their eyes away from my herpes. Yes, my herpes. It flared up. I have a pretty good idea of why but really?

Abreva is my new best friend. I'm choking down my lysine and praying it goes away soon. Send the vibes people. Please and thank you.

Said cold sore also took away my pampering today. I was scheduled for a facial. I need one. My skin is all kinds of confused. Dry. Desert dry AND breaking out. Not a nice combo. Treat one and the other flares up. What are you gonna do? I do have the need for a pedicure too so all pampering will not be lost.

I'll stop my negative whine. Jasmine keeps coming over and wants to cuddle. That sounds good right about now.
Peace and Love Peeps.

Mo's Music Mix

Don't fall out of your seats y'all.

I am currently separated from my iPod.

It is at home. I am not. I know once I do get home I am not going to want to be back on the computer.

That being said, I thought I would do a random selection from my project playlist and while doing so give you a little bit more insight into why they were chosen and/or what time of my life they represent.

1. Glamorous by Fergie
My girls. This song was on constant rotation in 2007. We played, and continue to play it, at Thirsty Thursday. It was, and still is, a pre-funk mandatory jam. It is a sing-a-long tune and is the ring tone currently assigned to my sisters by choice.

2. Closer by Ne Yo
New to 2008. On many of my playlists and driving cds. It gets me grooving. I dig the video. The song also reminds me of the man.

3. Girls by Beastie Boys
1986. One of the very first tapes, yes I said tapes, I owned. I played the heck out of that sucker. I can remember jamming out to the entire tape on the way to and from swim practice.

4. Sunday Bloody Sunday by U2
High school graduation after party. This was on a continuous play loop. Also, after seeing them play this song live in concert twice, it has stayed in the recesses of my mind. It gets me going {insert rocker type fist pumps and kickboxing aggression}.

5. The Humpty Dance by Digital Underground
Another high school tie in. Senior year of high school. The first couple years of college. Football games. School dances. House parties.

6. Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice
Pretty much the same as #5 with the exception of a few kisses I shared with Mr. Van Winkle. Yup, back in the day, our paths crossed at a few keggers. I didn't know him as Vanilla Ice or Rob. He was Robbie. This was way before he sparked the dance dance revolution.

7. Never Again by Kelly Clarkson
Summer of 2007. Poolside. BBQs.

8. Can't Get Enough of Your Love by Barry White
College. Ally McBeal. Spring break serenades.

9. Wild Thing by Tone Loc
The Creek. Sucking Budweiser through a 7-11 straw. High school dances.

10. It's Tricky by Run DMC
Middle school. My green and white Adidas. Another tape I played the dickens out of on my Walkman and boom box.

Woo wee. That was a trip down memory lane.

Peace and Love Peeps.

Random 6

Kim did this one. So did Ace. I figured why not?

6 random things you may not know about me

1. I like to sleep on the left side of the bed and must be cuddled up with my teddy bear when at home or a pillow when I am in another bed.

2. I have ink. It is a butterfly with cat eyes. Princess' eyes to be exact and is a "hidden" spot. It symbolizes freedom, independence, rebirth, awareness, and landing on your feet. I got it at a point in my life when I was starting to self realize and for a lack of words this morning, coming into my own.

3. I watch reality tv for mindless entertainment.

4. Although I love my cats, I do miss having a dog.

5. I name things. Plants, toys, cars, cameras, etc. Everything is fair game and in my mind's eye deserving of a name versus being simply an object.

6. I am the baby of 6. I have four brothers and 1 sister.

If ya feel like playing, lemme know so we can come by and get to know more about you.

Peace and Love Peeps.

They Say it Happens

They say it happens.

That one day you become more and more like your Mom as you get older.

It has been happening in my world bit by bit through the years.

Her influence is ever present in my life.

This morning I have to say, as I puttered around the kitchen, I couldn't help but smile and get a warm fuzzy when I realized the small things with her influence stamped all over them.

I boycotted the gym in favor of an extra 90 minutes of sleep this morning. Darn you New Moon. Darn you for keeping me up past my "bedtime".

So when I peeled myself out of the comfort of my warm bed, in which I was snuggled up with both of the kitties, I was in my nightgown.

Mom and nightgowns were one in the same.

It was cold in my place this morning. Instead of grabbing my robe from the back of the door, I put a hoodie on over my nightgown and slid my feet into my slippers.

Mom used to wear sweaters with her nightgown from time to time and you could pretty much find her in her beloved ballet looking slippers at any time of the day or night.

I have not made the switch over to those kind of slippers. I'm still rocking my plush elephant ones in case you're wondering.

Yes, go ahead and take that in for a moment. I was in a burnt orange and gray Longhorn hoodie over a pink and black pinstriped lace nightie sporting pink striped socks and padding around the place with my baby blue and pink elephant slippers.

Hey, I didn't say I was going for the sex appeal factor a'right?

As I rubbed the sleepies from my eyes and made way toward the kitchen, I decided I wanted toast and tea for breakfast. That's it. Nothing more. Nothing less. Toast and tea.

As I fed the babies, talked to Pacomo, made my chai tea latte, and placed the bread in the toaster, I smiled. A big ole smile. Mom used to start her mornings off with buttered toast and a cup or two of coffee.

It's happened. I am my mother's daughter.

And you know what? It is more than all good.

Peace and Love Peeps.

Some of Last Week in Food and Drink

Mars surprised me with a half rack of pumpkin ale. It has just a hint of pumpkin and is sooooo good.
These are so fly and deserving of the "Most Refreshing Cocktail in Seattle of 2005" award.
Duke's Chowder House Cucumber Mojtos: Cucumber infused vodka with fresh mint, splash of soda, sweet and sour, sugared rim.

One of us bucked the table's trend and ordered an Orange Mojito: Captain Morgan spied rum with fresh oranges, mint, sweet and sour, splash of soda.
We shared an order of chicken quesadillas and Dangerously "Killer" Prawns.

The chicken quesadillas were filled with blackened chicken breast with Tillamook extra sharp cheddar with zesty cucumber pico de gallo and guacamole.

The "killer" prawns lived up to the hype; sauteed wild Gulf prawns in a garlic white wine butter sauce with roasted red peppers served atop sourdough garlic bread.

The three of us who ordered the Cucumber Mojito also ordered Duke's award winning chowder in a bread bowl.

The other person was being good and ordered a grilled chicken club. What is a week in my world without some Mexican food? Lunch size chicken fajitas and one cheese enchilada.
The best thing Red Lobster offers in my opinion, Cheddar Bay biscuits. Lunch size portion of Chef's Signature Lobster and Shrimp Pasta, which is Maine lobster and tender shrimp tossed with fresh asparagus and tomatoes in a creamy white wine and lobster butter sauce over linguine.
Missing is Wednesday's dinner, which was a lunch sized portion of lasagna from Olive Garden, and Friday's lunch buffet at The Rock, which was salad, a bit of pasta, and a slice or two of pizza.

Now you see why I have a love affair with the treadmill in the wee hours of the morning?
When you eat like this, exercise is mandatory!
Peace and Love Peeps.

From the Road

I had the pleasure to drive the 100 mile National Scenic byway referred to as the Mountains to Sound Greenway on my day road trip last week. Roundtrip mileage was approximately 305.
It was me, the road, the XM radio, the camera, and these views:

This is Western Washington and what it looks like on the sound side of the byway. It is also the area of the state I live in.
RVs are a very common sight in these parts. I counted a total of 32 during the day. I couldn't help but wonder where they were going and what the people's lives in them would reveal if asked.
This is what I saw as I entered the pass/mountain area. Soothing 'eh?
Now I am getting into the desert grasslands of Central Washington.
To break up the monotony of the desert and to show you the interior of the rental, which drove me bonkers by the end of the day, here is the gratuitous self portrait. I intentionally made the seat the focal point.
This is the most common view from the driver's seat. After I changed the picture to sepia, it has become a new favorite. I am also pretty proud the shot is in focus, especially since I was going at least 76 mph. Remember the snow I said I saw on the top of the mountains? Not a whole lot but it is there. Give it a few more months and there will be more snow than you can shake a stick at. A little bit of fall foliage. As with the snow, give it a few more weeks and there will be more fall goodness than you can shake a stick at. I may be OTRA later this week again. If so, those views will be different but nowhere as scenic as this drive is.
Peace and Love Peeps.

Weekly Challenge #50

This week's challenge is on the recommendation of Ace and is derived from an Oprah show last week.

Yes, Ace and I watch Oprah. From time to time, we'll discuss the show. Don't hate. This is how we roll. I bet you thought we only clowned on another and talked about music. We're deeper than that people!

Ok, enough digression. This is important.

The challenge this week is to forgive.

To quote Dr. Ned Hallowell, "To understand forgiveness, you must understand what it is not. Forgiveness is not turning the other cheek. Forgiveness is not running away. Forgiving someone does not mean that you condone what the person has done, nor does it mean that you invite them to do it again. It doesn't mean that you don't want the offending person to be punished. It doesn't mean that you forgive the offense, nor does it mean that by forgiving you tacitly invite bad things to happen again. It doesn't mean that you won't defend yourself."

You can read more of his wisdom and what it does mean here. Really good stuff and is from a book I plan to pick up one of these days too.

If a man can forgive the son who killed his family, I'm pretty sure we can find it in ourselves to forgive too. Besides, it is one of the best gifts you can give to yourself.

I speak from experience. Forgiveness has the possibility of setting you free.

I challenge you to entertain and quite possibly embrace the process of forgiveness.

Peace and Love Peeps.

Voice and Choice

The first thought upon waking this morning was one word.

The voice inside my head simply said, "Choices."

It wasn't a whisper nor was it a shout. It was just there. Speaking to me.

I take this message as a definite sign and as a timely reminder.


Applicable in all areas of life.

For me, what it boils down to is we make choices every day defining the current state of our being.

For me, choices define.

For me, choices make a statement.

For me, I choose to remember choices are personal decisions. What we decide is no one's truth but ours. What is right for me may not be right for you and this is more than ok.

We have the power of choice. I am thankful for this and for the reminder first thing this morning setting the tone of my day.

Peace and Love Peeps.

Thank You, Mo's Music Mix, and Weekend Plans: Edited

First, a big ole Texas size shout out to all of the prayers and good vibes you put out there for me yesterday.

The day trip went well and I was safe. I did not encounter any snow, other than what I could see on the top of the mountains. News reports this morning indicate it was cold enough for the area I passed through to accumulate some as night fell.

Stay tuned for random pictures I snapped from the car later.

Friday. My music mix. I'm kinda' all over the place this week with DJ iPod deciding it wanted to do a throw back to the past, which is all good, as I rock out to 'em to this day.

If you decide to check out the links, I think you'll enjoy seeing the throwbacks.

The hair. The clothes. The dancing. Good stuff.

1. Got to be Real by Cheryl Lynn

2. U + UR Hand by Pink

3. Bubbly by Colbie Calliat

4. Hypnotized by Plies feat. Akon

5. Let's Stay Together by Al Green

6. The Tin Man by Kenny Chesney

7. School's Out by Alice Cooper

8. Pon de Replay by Rihanna

9. The Boss by Rick Ross feat. T-Pain

10. Boogie Oogie Oogie by A Taste of Honey

My weekend is still kinda' up in the air. What I have planned so far looks like this.

Friday: Work. Brows. Nose. Dinner with Mel, Big Suge, and possibly Kyla then off to a movie (either The Express or Kung Fu Panda) Fall into bed early.

Saturday: Only one of the biggest days in football for a Longhorn fan!
It is the Red River Rivalry. Texas vs Oklahoma. Texas is ranked 5th. Oklahoma is ranked 1st. Both teams have 5 wins and 0 losses. It so going to be ON. Saturday night is dinner and a night out with friends I have not seen in quite some time.

Sunday: Usual household stuff. Football. Plans to tap into my creative energy and definitely whip out the Halloween cards and whatever else strikes my fancy.

You? Whatcha' got going on this weekend? You know I am interested so speak to me. Come on now. Don't be shy. You are amongst friends.

Peace and Love Peeps.

Any idea what this stands for?

I'll give you a hint.

Think Willie Nelson.

I'm taking a day trip Thursday. I may even be treated to a bit of this.

It is hard to believe the snow has already started to fall in the mountains.

Last year we had some killer skiing conditions. Maybe this year will hold the same but only time will tell.

For now, will you say a travel prayer for me? It's gonna be me, the road, the radio (providing the rental has Sirius again), 2.5 hours each way, and the chance of snow.

I'll be by soon to visit. I feel behind and out of touch. It's only been a few days but I can't shake the feeling there is lots going on with ya'. Funny how that happens in the blogging world huh?

Peace and Love Peeps.

To Do

Are you a list maker?
I bet you already knew I was didn't you? I've been asked many a time how I remember some of the things I do.

Simply put, I write it down.

I create a reminder.

I make a task.

Assign a due date.

The PDA reminds.

I execute.

My list keeps getting longer.

I have items on my current to do, rather task list, which are no longer relevant.

It is time for me to make a new one.

It is time to change due dates.

It is time to rid myself of the red items I know won't get done and honestly don't make sense at this stage of the game.

It is time to clear out the old and bring in the new.

It is time for me to make the time to do this, to make this a reality.

Peace and Love Peeps.

First I would like to apologize if I offended anyone with previous Aries Spears bit.

It is, as we say in my circle, wrong on so many levels. Because a lot rings true, in my circle at least, I found it funny. The laugh out loud kind of funny. I'm thinking quite possibly not many others share the same thought process.

So please accept my apology if I offended you. Please?

Moving on, I'd like to take a moment to recognize some of the things which brought me happiness this Monday. A gray Monday to boot.

In no particular order
  • Jasmine seems to be eating on her own again
  • Princess brought her stuffed mouse to the bed early this AM to play
  • Said mouse was put back in her food bowl by the time I returned home; she trained herself and obviously gets it
  • The kitties and I have our health
  • My family (biological and chosen) are blessed to be in the same healthy category
  • Princess' lush fall/winter coat has arrived; it is sooooo fluffy and soft
  • I was able to spend downtime with some of my favorite peeps this weekend
  • The love and friendship of my peeps warms my heart and fills my soul with goodness sometimes I can't put the feeling in words
  • Candid conversations and being trusted with personal details of another's life humbles me. I am honored to be a trusted confidante.
  • Warm chai tea on a cool fall morning made from the comfort of my own home
  • Pumpkin butter on a toasted multigrain english muffin
  • "Toys" from the meeting last week being left in random places on my work desk
  • An impromptu "lets go see a movie" decision on a Monday night (Pretty Prince and I saw Wanted at the $2.00 discount theater)
  • Having the flexibility of being able to take a friend nourishment in the middle of the afternoon when they are feeling under the weather
  • The basics to not be taken for granted: a roof over my head, food in my pantry and fridge, a warm place to lay my head, indoor plumbing, money in my pocket and the bank, a job (which I enjoy), the ability to see, walk, talk, smell, touch, taste, hear, read, feel
  • Laughter

I could keep going but these are the ones that flowed from my fingers first.

Peace and Love Peeps. Peace and Love.

Laugh Out Loud Funny

This may be politically incorrect but OMFG, it is laugh out funny to me.

Weekly Challenge #49

This week's challenge is brought to you courtesy of Fiwa.

The microwave.

When is the last time you cleaned yours?

This week the challenge is to clean it, inside and out.

We're talking get down and dirty with it. Scrub-a-dub-dub.

If you have crusties on the top you can't seem to knock loose, a trick I picked up years ago is to place a small container of uncovered water in there, fire that baby up for a minute or two, and let the steam work its magic. The crusties should now come loose.
Peace and Love Peeps.
