I have really been terrible about posting to this site... I have thought about killing it and staring over... ahhh.. what the heck.... carry on mate!

it is July and we are recovering from being in the dark for a week thank you to the storm that blew through here a week ago last Friday~ we are very blessed as we still have our home.. four of our neighbors are not so lucky...

We had to relocate the office AGAIN..... too many issues with the basement location...so... spent hours tonight moving, running lines, setting up equipment, untangling cords... yesh...

so I am beat... need to get some sleep.. OH  CRAP my sheets are still in the dryer... hmmmm...

first visits~

Ash will be home tomorrow night! YIPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE I cannot wait to see her and hold her in my arms.. the last time was Christmas.... WHAT???????????

Mich, Jas Shelb and Grady stopped in yesterday afternoon and we were so suprised! Mich or Jas did not even know the address of the new house and they found it THANKS to Grady's PERFECT directions!!! Wow he just amazes me~ he is only 4 and does not forget a thing. Shelby had her first little haircut yesterday. I say little becuase she only has a LITTLE hair.... she was so proud showing off her new look! (it was just a shape up you see)

well alot to do today... I am so happy that everyone is feeling better at Michelles house... thank you Lord.... hopefully, noone here gets what they had there...

really sucks.... haha.. I have been thinking the last few days of all the time cousin Kathleen has moved... youy~~

so moved to a leased home (not an RV) ~ it is on one floor (nice) and about 1/3 the sq footage of my home.... as long as I am caring for Grama, the RV has to wait.... and that is ok~

Mich, Grady and Shelb are all sick... bronchitis, double ear infections, pink eye.. wowza~~ Ash flew the red eye home from Vegas and darn it, she is sick too! Tonight my left ear is hurting a bit... hmm better hit the Cipro tonight to try to stave it off....
tomorrow, first day of work in my new office space... oh boy! hope I can find every thing :)

Shelb goes to the ENT tomorrow.... needs tubes in both little tiny ears.... poor baby doll...

for now, need some sleep....

sweet dreams~

winter... is back, again.....

the snow is heavy outside and uh... I HATE winter.... but looking at Tiny Gardner's blog helps lift my heart and thoughts of warm dirt on the fingers warm the soul....

it is very cold out but the wind is relativly quiet.... Chelsea enjoyed her walk in the star lit sky and the crunch... Toshie would have loved romping in this snow...

Oven Lovin Saturday ( a day late )

well better late than never! and these cookies are SOOOOOOOOOO GREAT they are worth the wait!
Super EASY, quick, and just amazing! Don't toss out your left over coffee this morning! MAKE COOKIES!

Coffee Cookies~
2c shortening (I use 1/2 butter - real butter unsalted)
2 c brn sugar
2 eggs
4 1/2 c flour
1 t salt
4t baking powder
1t baking soda
1t vanilla
1c raisens or nuts (or nothing at all)
1c HOT coffee

combine crisco/butter, brn sug and eggs mixing them up real good~ if you use raisins soak them in water to plumb em up (or forget them all together) Add flour, salt, baking powder and vanilla - mix

hold the cup of coffee over the batter and pop in the soda (you will see alot of foam - this is a good thing) the foam will leak over on the batter which is fine - once the foam guiets down, add remaing coffee and soda to the batter - it will see rather gooey once you mix it up, but that is ok

add raisns *yuck*, nuts or choc chips(?) or nothing at all

drop by spoonfuls on to parchment paper lined pan (easy clean up) and bake at 375 for 11-12 minutes
place these big fat amazing cookies on paper towel to dry before putting them in the cookie jar (or they will stick together)

these are so GREAT! you can heal a broken heart and solve most of the worlds problems over these cookies and a glass of ice cold milk (or uh, a cup of coffee)
