The Games Have Begun

Last night opened with a bang ... on the Trump jet! Nice beginning! I loved the comment by "The Donald" about his hair being "real" because of the wind on the tarmack!! Poor, pretty Summer, you got the boot ... guess it's not "summer in February for you dear!" I like the group, very diverse and I'm sure we will see a lot of tempers flair this season. Carolyn was hard core in the boardroom. "What did you do to contribute to the team ... Summer ????" she glared and waited for the answer as Summer just squirmed in her chair looking around the room. George was his "good ol self" actually must more laid back than in the past episodes. Love the game ... Look forward to the comments from the group ... until next Monday ....

"Mules" ... Oh So Random

Ok Ok , these are mine ... go ahead, laugh...because if you saw me trying to walk in them You Would be Laughing!! So what are mules anyway ? why the name "Mule"?? where does it come from??? Now, of course I did not buy these beauties for myself, they were a shower gift from my friend. Love the color though ... "ruby red". I guess they are supposed to make my legs look good ... I think that I will just leave that up to the "runway models" !


Thought I'd add a little bit of color and sweetness to the blog! Love the M&M's ! Guess it is just because they are just too easy to eat. I buy the 3lb bags at Costco and always have them ready to replenish our gumball machine. As you can see, at the moment I am lagging at filling it up! We have the machine on the corner of our bar so as you pass by you just turn the crank and have a handfull of sugar! People love it when they come over, especially the kids .... Wow and no coins needed! Guess I'm just a kid at heart ... and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that !!!

Wanna Be A Cook Someday

So what is it these days that draws me to "The Food Network"? It's not like I curl up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and take down the recipies ... ya as if I really have the time! Anyways, I find myself watching these cooking shows mostly when I am cooking dinner, as an alternative to the news. I guess I feel if I watch enough of these shows I can get some ideas for myself. Now me, and my lifestyle I need to be able to make things that are simple and fast ... so of course my favorite show is with "Rachel Ray" and she makes 30 minute meals. Not only are the meals fast but healthy. She is quite the funny girl. She is bubbly and loves to eat! I guess I think that by watching her show I will somehow remember her tips when I comes time for that creative recipe night!
My husband just laughs when he sees the Food Channel on. He is a really great cook, yet as he puts it, it's always nice to have a break ... we share cooking so don't get me wrong! I just love to bake because I love to eat the yummy treats! They do have a show called "Sugar Rush", right up my alley where they find cool desserts ... but you know what, I just love plain old chocolate, give me a bag of M&M's anyday! ... although dark chocolate is a weakness !

The Aquatic Perspective

People reading this blog may think, what the world is a "fisheye view"? Well, when trying to think up a name and be off the cuff about it ... it just came to me. When looking around my house the other day for fish to photograph I could not believe how many things there were to capture. I guess it is because I am an aquatic person and like having the feel of sea things around. This is actually a picture of the stained glass window in our bathroom. We had it made in Mexico, on one of our random adventures. We took out the existing window and framed this one in. The window has a light that shines on it from the back from outside so when it's dark it is a cool nightlight. Hey, I wonder what a "real fisheye view" would be like ??

Fireplaces aren't just for looks in CA

We have had really nice and crazy weather this winter from the 90's to the low 40's. What to wear is the question?? I am always wearing shorts even if I have my Ugg boots on. People think that I am crazy but who really cares as long as I am comfortable...right! Every night this past week we have had a fire in the fireplace ... makes me feel like I'm back east ... without the snow. My cousin Nancy can fill me in on the snow adventures so I can live my snow fun through her. Bundled little Blaise up to go for a walk around the block in his red wagon ... all set with milk, pretzels, blankets and his best bear friend "Cutie Pie". Nice way to catch the sunset. Another fire tonight I'm sure, supposed to be cold ... for CA

Today was a beautiful day ... clear with cool clouds, after last nights downpour. We went for a walk downtown to go furnature shopping. Outside the store was this car ... oh soooo bizarre ! All kinds of figurines glued to it. Of course I had my camera ... just in case I found something on my travels for my "blog" oh ya know, yes I'm the novice so I fugured I'd be ready!! I wasn't the only one taking pictures. As I was taking the pictures I saw the owner/driver opening the car door and her hair was the color of this type. Yes, flaming purple ! She was letting her little dog out of the car. Zoom in and check out the figures ... What a Trip !!!

We had Lots of balloons at our house on Valentines Day ... but one day later the "regular balloons" were on the ground looking like they had been up all night at a party! The mylar balloons, on the other hand are still flying high above in the house. What's the deal?? I know that they will probably be up there until St. Patrick's Day when we will replace the pink, red and white with lovely shades of green!
