Just Another Birthday


I still have 4 loads of laundry probably 5 by Wednesday when I realized that is the slowest day at the laundry and that is when my new laundry day will be.

I had a scare the other day. I remember washing mama’s quilt and putting it in the dryer. I had to be at the laundry first thing at 8 am the next day to be sure of getting it back.

They closed it at 5 PM and I had a few things including the quilt left in the dryer.

Mama 17

Because I have had my good under clothes and good sheets and towels stolen I have to keep an eagle eye out and check several times.

They are not open on the weekends now since that is when the thieves hit, the office is closed and they would come in with found cards and use the facility.

Anyways, after 4 hours of laundry the other day I came in and laid down. I have been so tired since the time change this year and seem to want to sleep more. When I refuse my body that wish I seem to be more forgetful.

I was laying there and thought about the quilt. I went and checked the laundry cart with wheels that I had parked in the living room. It was not there.

The dried clothes from the previous days wash were there, including the blanket Victoria made me last year. It was one regular Pissy Pants China load and the big washer load of just mama’s quilt. I used two dryers.

I came in here and with a sinking heart checked the closet and there it was !

Seems China likes Mama’s quilt so much. Every time I put it on the bed all freshly washed she decides it’s her favorite PEE spot.

I do not remember carrying the quilt back here and putting it in the closet. I would have had to have carried it solitary; and think it so odd that memory is lost.

All the rest of the clothes that I had just finished were also there.

It’s like my body was so tired I completely phased out walking back here with a HUGE quilt in my arms ???

Seriously, I am still not used to this latest time change. It has effected me very differently this year.

Tomorrow, I will be 64.

I made cyngetti last night. Rhea bought garlic and Texas Toast and we added garlic to the toast. I found the spaghetti sauce I made from scratch to be a tad runny and not thick like I had wished.

Smelling of permeated garlic we were off to see the last installment of “Breaking Dawn”

It was the best yet; as it should be~ because after all it is the Last.

I have noticed since I finally got into “The Walking Dead” and American Horror Story (Asylum) my dreams have totally taken on a new and disturbing turn.

I even watched Bob’s Zombies Eat Lead vid again last night.

My bro solo in the mountains, oh wait Zombies

Scott and his Mother will cook Thanksgiving together. He is making a Ham and since his recipe sounds so Paradise Ham familiar like mine, I said “Good Deal”

I will just make the 2 Sweet Potato pies and Rhea is making her specialty Green Bean Casserole. She uses Cr of Chicken, and Cr of Mushroom soup together. It tastes really good, different from most person’s recipe for it 🙂

Key West Paradise Ham

A precooked Spiral ham is awesome on the grill

Before baking ham, place pineapple slices on ham with toothpicks and place cherries in center of pineapple.

Do not buy Glaze in a jar…make your own sweetness Smile

In a medium microwave safe bowl combine brown sugar and reserved pineapple juice. Mix together and microwave for about 5 minutes, until mixture is thick. Pour some of this glaze over the ham about every 15 minutes in the last hour of baking, until all is used.

After heating in the oven then you can place it on the grill and continue basting for a great flavor explosion.

Roast some brown sugar and buttered squash in place of sweet potatoes for a change-up.

2    large red sweet potatoes
1    cup light brown sugar, packed
1    cup evaporated milk
3    large eggs

Wildfire

It was a HAZY night filled with NIGHTMARES.

The sun’s BLISS made me HOPEFUL that it would not be STORMY weather.

I get very SLEEPY and SAD.

The WORST is I can’t fly in my dreams when I want too.

Just can’t get off the ground to escape the WILDFIRE.

Wildfire

Lyrics

She comes down from Yellow Mountain
On a dark, flat land she rides
On a pony she named, Wildfire
With a whirlwind by her side
On a cold Nebraska night
Oh, they say, she died one winter
When there came a killing frost
And the pony she named, Wildfire
Busted down it’s stall
In a blizzard he was lost
She ran callin’, Wildfire
She ran callin’, Wildfire
She ran callin’, Wildfire

By the dark of the moon, I planted
But there came an early snow
There’s been a hoot-owl howling by my window now
For six nights in a row
She’s coming for me, I know
And on Wildfire, we’re both gonna go
We’ll be riding, Wildfire
We’ll be riding, Wildfire
We’ll be riding, Wildfire
On Wildfire, we’re gonna ride
We’re gonna leave, sodbustin’ behind

Get these hard times right on out of our minds

Riding Wildfire

Randomness


From Osho~

“He invoked complete inner freedom and the responsibility to oneself, not demanding superficial behavioural changes, but a deeper, inner transformation.Desires were to be accepted and surpassed rather than denied.Once this inner flowering had taken place, desires such as that for sex would be left behind”

I like that word surpassed.

Ok,get a piece of paper.I will write mine here and hopefully will not feel the desire to delete it.

Instructions:

” a little experiment. Close your doors and sit in the room, and just start writing your thoughts – whatsoever comes in your mind.

Don’t change them, because you need not show this piece of paper to anybody.

Just go on writing for ten minutes and then look at them: this is what your thinking is.

If you look at them, you will think this is some madman’s work.

If you show that piece of paper to your most intimate friend, he will also look at you and think, ”Have you gone crazy?”

And it is the same situation with him also.

But we go on hiding the craziness.

We have faces, and behind those faces we are madmen.”

Now, do it,get a piece of paper and just write ,do not think,randomness.

Don’t read any further until we exchange writings .OK ?

Scroll Down 

Just reply or private message me your nothingness and random writings.

+My Madness

Ok,that was smooth

I really was supposed to be in the shower but I peed my pants now I have to take a shower.

Random,not thinking.

The cat has been eating centipedes.I try to catch what I can and put them outside for their safety.

They are so neat centipedes.

All those legs and yet they all work so smoothly together.

You know I really wish I knew the keyboard.But I still type fast with two hands even.

I’ve done a lot of  journeying and web page design over the years.

I need a good kiss and hug ?

Hugs are easier.

I guess kissing is probably over rated since so few know how too really kiss a person.

OK

Stop.

For starters we did this wrong.The instructions were too using a piece of paper and I asked you too reply with your randomness.

Also the instructions said nothing about typing it out in notepad and then pasting it in here.

But that is not what I did.

I did it here with no safety net to delete, proofread what have you.safty doesn’t look spelled right safety there ya go.

Anywho

What do you have ?

You wasn’t expose to read mine until we exchanged…Remember the instructions ???? Expose doesn’t look right maybe it is suppose to be supposed …OK.

Oh and it said to close the door and write on a piece of paper.

I do not follow directions very well at all.

My shower awaits me.
