Just a few rambling thoughts and crafts from a mind that is full of both. I am talented in my mind but regularly run full throttle into the wall of procrastination. I have raised procrastination to an art form. A friend once told me I have a BS in BS and a minor in excuse making. If there is anyway to get out of doing my best, I will do my best to get out of it. Welcome to my saburban life. : ).. Lol.

Outside at work..
At our friend's wedding reception..
Before the Jack Johnson concert..
Lots of radish hearts..
A little Ranch Dressing dripped heart..
Some of the fluff from one of our pup's toys..
And another heart found during a wine mob meeting..
I've been digging through my pics on the computer,
and these are just some of the ones
I have run across.
I know there are more.
All in all, I've probably found about 30 pics
to choose from..
Getting ready to save them to my phone
so that I can put them on Instagram.

I grew up with two older brothers..
I grew up with boys for neighbors..
I grew up playing with cars in the dirt
with the boys at school,
always getting in trouble with our
elementary school gym teacher
Old Dan Tucker
because I always had dirt under my fingernails.
I grew up playing sports..
I played catch with the football..
I played softball,
starting out as a catcher,
then moving on to pitch in my later years.
I coached a Junior girls softball team with
one of my friends when we were both
merely 16 years old.
We were the youngest coaches in our town.
I grew up wearing an occasional dress,
but I doubt that it was my choice. Lol.
I know this because I've got pictures
of me in dresses.
I still don't wear dresses..
You will never see me in high heels,
mainly because I would fall over and knock out
a whole row of people to the side of me.
I will always be a tomboy.
Days like today.
When I go into our basement..
Getting ready to do laundry..
And I open the washer lid..
Put my load of clothes inside..
Reach for the detergent on the shelf
next to the washing machine
One of these,
Just hanging out on the pipe..
Waiting to jump on me..
A Camel Cricket..
It really wasn't much smaller than that..
It's times like that
which remind me..
I am female..
I am a girl..
Totally freaked out by those things..
They can jump 50 feet in a split second..
Instead of being scared of us and
hiding? Or jumping away?
They jump AT you.
I kid you not.
I hate those things.
I got a fly swatter and thought
that I got him.
He wiggled around the pipe
and came back for round two.
I still don't think that I got him.
I know he's in there waiting for me..
Biding his time..
I think this is in order.
i am such a girl..

It appears that I'm not the only person who finds
hearts everywhere I go.
Drew Barrymore also finds them,
and now has a new book out with photos of the
ones she has found for the last 10 years.
Her book is called, "Find It In Everything",
and she has a contest on Instagram
where viewers can submit pictures of hearts that they
I jumped online and submitted this one for sure..
10 pictures will be selected to win an
autographed copy of Drew's book,
while one overall winner will get a signed book
and a wall print of one of her heart pics.
Wow - I just realized - there is
a second heart that is upside down above
the other. : ).. How cool is that?

I've been having connectivity issues with Blogger and our Internet Explorer,
so sometimes I try and log on other places.
This time I got blocked because I hadn't logged on from the
"new" location and it wouldn't let me post unless I let Blogger
send me a text message, which unless they have AT&T,
isn't going to go through. : /..
Sooo, ergo, there was a short absence..
I'm back for now though,
posting through Firefox until it encounters a problem.
Sooo, what's for lunch today?
I'm leaning towards these deelishus looking sandwiches..
Ooooh, all that yummy, cheese, molten goodness?
It makes my mouth water..
Can't wait to give it a shot!

So many times, our Kansas City ADT Security group
has suffered tragedy and loss.
Today is the day for one of our former reps to shine!
He's living in Atlanta now and is part of the Dragon House
Crew that brought SYTYCD's animation
dancers Cyrus and BluPrint,
as well as Jasmine Harris who was
so great last year in everything she did.
Today is Cordaro Gross' turn to chase that
Vegas ticket down.
He's in todays group for the
So You Think You Can Dance
Season 11 Atlanta auditions.
(I was one of his training assistants at ADT. : ). Woot!)

I'm a member of a Cairn Terrier Facebook page,
and one of our member's furbaby, Cato, had
seven sweet little puppies.
Here is a great video of their progression.
They are all out in the world with their
new furever homes, with the exception
of one sweet little girl who stayed with her birth family.
Way too cute.

Whatever thoughts we might have about Michael Jackson's
Real life, that man could dance.
And so can this group.

I never used to like lemon lime sodas
until just a few years ago..
Now? I have found that they go very well
with other drink items..
Tastes kinda mimosa-ish..
Yummy.. : )..
I would load a picture,
but apparently none of the Apple Juice pics
want to load. Lol.
And someone else suggested
Which apparently won't load either.
I might have to start drinking my
sodas with juice more often,
or my juices with soda.
I'm not a big Cranberry fan,
although Ocean Spray had a great
White Cranberry - Grape drink mix that they
have since discontinued.
However, I might also have to
have a little OJ with some
of Smirnoff Ice's added..
And or.. Some homemade
Sangria.. : )..
The next two days are my weekend..
It's time to relax and enjoy
my time off..

After a great season, our guys are one and done in
the playoffs, despite playing a fantastic game.
We could have had that game if we hadn't
been dropping players all over the
field like they had been hit by the plague..
We lost Jamal Charles four minutes into the first quarter,
Donnie Avery and then Brandon Flowers, all
to concussions, and then lost Kniles Davis and
Justin Houston to knee injuries before it was all said and done.
For those who want to knock our team down,
pbbbpplllt. Haters gotta hate and potaters gotta potate.
For those who realize what this team did this year?
We celebrate with ya.
It was a great season Chiefs fans.
No matter how it ended.
Rock on Chiefs.
Proud of ya.

It's sooooooooo cold out there..
I believe that I will have some hot chocolate to warm my insides..
And make the day a cheery one..
Much better..: )..

We had about two or three inches of snowfall
last night, so I decided to go out and
clean my car off on my last break.
I wondered why someone left a glove and some other
assorted items in my passenger seat,
and it took me a little while to comprehend..
I cleaned off the wrong car!
Lol.. Too many snowy silver colored cars
out in our parking lot at work last night.
My car was still covered in snow a couple
parking spaces away. : )..
Well, welcome to the co-worker who had a
hand with their snow removal.
At least it was a car with a Missouri Tiger
license plate bracket!
