road trip today

Monday, November 14, 2011

I am off this morning to a dear friend's house in the southern part of the state, to visit. She is also taking me to a neighbor of hers, to see her Wizard of Oz collection. The woman is getting rid of it now after years of collecting due to her age and downsizing. Nobody in her family is interested in it. I just want to see it,,Dd is not feeling well enough to make the trip.. I love adventures!!

Veterans the day after..

Saturday, November 12, 2011

I have been supporting the paralyzed Vets for as long as I can remember. Just because yesterday was "their day" does not make me stop thinking of them the rest of the year. Self-sacrifice is the core of our humankind beliefs. IT is what we do to be part of a race:the human race. Only the last person on he planet does not have to sacrifice SOMETHING for another; a place in line, the lat cookie, money, thoughts, etc.
I walked out to my mailbox last night and realized that there is no mail just because somebody decided that it is a holiday for government workers because somebody else made the decision to put their needs and life up front for the rest of us.
I NEEDED THE EXERCISE, SO WAS GLAD I WALKED OUT THERE,, LOOKING AT THE STARS AS I WALKED BACK HOME.
I am thanking every military person for the other 364 days of the year...

    I also appreciate all those who currently are in the military or have been in the military. War time or peace time. I am thankful for those who gave their lives, health and loved ones for our freedom.

I will admit - I hate war - don't want it to happen and want them ALL home. But, the President decides (and doesn't ask my opinion).

    I am with you. This country of ours has made too many excuses to not work . Especially for Government workers. if congress worked longer we would get better resolutions.
If Congressmen and women were not given a free ride for the rest of their lives they would be better equiped to tackle the health care issue too.

HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I love my veggies!

Friday, November 11, 2011

We were so blessed to have so many fruits and veggies this year. We grew tomatoes, cukes, blackberries and raspberries. Anything more would have been too difficult for me after the surgery, so it worked out. I do have to adjust my "Squirreling instinct" of preparing and freezing lots of them though. My friends did not offer any string beans to me this year, so I had to compensate with canned ones on sale. I did freeze stuffed green peppers, huge ones, that DD hates, but oh well...
THe huckleberries that I picked in Paradise, are in the freezer, as well as soup stocks and meats that I cut up for various dishes this winter. The fresh salmon, steelhead, trout and venison from my Yooper friends really filled the whole bottom of my freezer, the basket!! I am blessed to be able to have this luxury appliance to save $$ in the long run. Today is baking and freezing cakes and cookies for later to take to friends.

    I love my veggies, too. But sadly, I can't eat much fresh/raw veggies because of the texture of them. Everything ahs to be cooked.

    LINDA You are a woman after my own heart.
I love to have my freezer stocked. I actually gave away our upright and bought a small chest freezer. Big mistake it is always too full and hard to manage but it is economical since the other was a self defrost, used too much power.
I always make planned overs and any chicken or ham bones become stock and put in to the freezer. I bake scones and muffins for DH, he loves to always have them on hand, he says they are his favorite food. DH loved Huckleberries, i am sure they are what we call BRAMBLES in England. He just loves Bramble pie. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticonPat in Maine.
