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.

Luv, Luv, Luv this song

Rascal Flats coming up with yet another super hit.
I think its one of my favorite ones.

Fighting sleep.
Long, loud work week.
Today was a day off to rest and recharge
And sit in peace and quiet.
Until the cat started meowing and the dogs started barking.
Still not as loud as work.
Time to sleep.
I'm out.

What we have here.. Is a failure to communicate.. : )..

Have you ever had a time where you know that
you have missed an integral part of a conversation?  : )..
We have friends who are Filipino and some of their
conversations seem so randomly funny because every once
in a while, they throw in an English word or two.
"Corner of Masarap St. and Malutong.... heheheh... joke!
Sa bahay lang po nila. May waiting list
                                                       Wala ata tayo ng gulay and fish...
                                                               patay ang diet ko...Lol!!!!
Sometimes it's words like lawnmower and fish.
I think I'm missing out.  Lol.
It reminds me of the writing assignment I had
in my Creative Writing class back in high school.
We had to pick an ending sentence and write
a story around it.  I chose, "And that's why
there are no more chickens in the hen house."
It was a great story, I wish that I still had
a copy of it, but since it's been ..  a while ago, I don't.
My co-worker was telling me something yesterday.
She had made cupcakes and a six layer cake
for her daughter's birthday.
There was something about knobs that were
hard to turn, and then the next thing I knew?
She would have to vacuum the curtains again.
Huh?  I think I missed something.  Lol.
I think I am going to have to pay attention
more often.  : )..

Whuuuut? : )..

Every once in a while, I find something that
pleasantly surprises me.
Things like the delicious Square Pizza in
downtown Independence, MO.
Shrimp Chimichangas.
Chili's now defunct Tilapia with Pico and Chimichurri Sauce.
Several local wineries and their delicious wines.
Fence Stile Winery's delicious Sangrias by Shriti.
Seagram's "new" Exotic Sangria wine coolers.
Smirnoff Ice with grenadine.
Monster Nachos from the El Chupacabre restaurant in North KC, MO.
Sweet potato chips.  Sweet potato fries.
Loaded mashed potatoes from Ernie's Steakhouse in Sugar Creek, MO.
Ooey Gooey Butter Cake.
My friend's Key Lime pie in graham cracker crust
made with Key Lime pudding.
My co-worker Cassie's Strawberry Shortcake
cupcakes with some delicious cream cheese and whipped cream frosting.
And today?
Caesar Salad..
Slices of parmesan cheese..
Although I was expecting
butter - I found this..
That is Cheddar's Honey Buttered Croissant.
Ohhh Mmm Gee!
The first bite?
My eyes rolled back in my head.
The second bite?
I think I about lost a finger.
I have to ask..
Would it be considered rude to sit by the
kitchen and snatch each honey buttered
croissant off the salad bowls that happen to walk out?
: )..
They are just that good..
Ohhhhhhh Mmmmmm Geee...

Yummy! : )

Crazy busy week.
4am work shift.
Daylight Savings Time.
I've got plenty time to get read---
Ack! I'm going to be late for work!
Still got there on time with a minute to spare.
No time to blog.
A moment to relax.
While the laundry is washing.
These look delish!
Back when I can..
Until then?
: )..
