My vintage find


I mentioned that when I went to see my friend (that becomes anxious in clutter) that we went to a vintage store. This was my bargain. For $2 I bought a not very old omelet maker. Now in the past I have made omelets the old fashioned way with a regular pan. My kids really enjoy omelets and I enjoy kitchen gadgets so I thought this was perfect. The omelets tasted delicious and even looked good!

Running???????????



I received this magazine in my mail box and thought that the postmaster had made an error and put it in the wrong PO BOX. I investigated and found that it was addressed to me. HMMMMMMMM I think a practical joke from a friend or a sign from above. As I looked at the cover and saw the title "99 Inspiring Reasons to Run" I immediately thought of 100 good reasons not to. The magazine caught my attention so I opened it up. Now don't get me wrong I am not opposed to running or anything it has just been a long time since I have done it. My days of a 3 or 4 mile run went away after my first child. (and he is 17) anyway I opened up the magazine and saw lots of adds for running shoes and energy bars. I read articles of real people who have started running for example the 402 man from the Biggest loser who lost half his body weight and is training for a marathon. I will keep the magazine in view and see if it helps in the mean time it will be one foot in front of the other as I walk the track. To all my running friends I say go get em! By the way they sent me this magazine because I "ran" a local 5K in February. Don't tell them I actually walked it because they are sending me two more free issues. Might be a great reason to get some new sneakers eh!

Is it Fall Yet

Well football has started and there are fall and winter items hanging in all of the stores however the weather feels very hot and muggy. yuk. I am ready for some cooler temps, homemade soups and something pumpkin. Oh by the way that beautiful pumpkin cake you saw on La Vida Dulce Blog Well let me just say there were only crumbs on that plate when I arrived for my visit. But she does make some yummy chocolate chip cookies. The days are getting shorter and it is harder to get up in the dark. When do we fall back? I do like the order fall brings. new school schedules, Moms groups, Bible studies (and lunch with friends) Missed you Thursday Lara. What I don't like is that they have already filled hobby lobby and garden ridge with Christmas supplies. Talk about burn out by the time December rolls around. No wonder everyone forgets the real meaning of the holi-day too much commercialism. Ok enough about that I hear there is a cold front coming in Monday that will take us down to the 80's YIPEEEEEEEEEEE

The blogging Queen is holding me hostage and making me blog before I depart the beautiful south. For a novice blogger it is difficult to blog under pressure. I will do my best only because there is chocolate involved. Actually it has been a weekend full of chocolate countered with walking three miles and drinking diet coke :) I must say it was a fun weekend filled with walks on the beach, talks on the beach and ooooow wait a minute that is sounding a little mushy. so let me say the most interesting part of the trip was a visit to a little shop called Grannies Panties. Actually it was a wonderful old house filled with vintage items and was called Everthing but...Grannies Panties although I think I saw them burried under a pile of "vintage" clothing. I would hesitate to say that everything in there was vintage since I remeber wearing and using some of the items I saw in there. Now I know the blogging Queen has refered to me as her vintage friend but you know what she is no spring chicken. My eye sight is definately better than hers she kept thinking the bouys on the ocean were birds. I better sign off and get out of this computer room before she comes in and flogs the blogger.I am going to head back to the ant ranch and La Vida Loca .
Only a crazy person schedules a flight on 911. See ya back in Texas :)

Resurrection

I'm at a loss for words, there's nothing to say
I sit in silence wondering what led me to this place
How did my heart become so lifeless and cold
Where did the passion go?
When all my efforts seem like chasing wind
I've used up all my strength and there's nothing left to give
I've lost the feeling and I'm down to the core
I can't fake it anymore.
chorus:
Here I am at the end I'm in need of resurrection
Only You can take this empty shell and raise it from the dead
What I've lost to the world what seems far beyond redemption
You can take the pieces in Your hand and make me whole again, again
You speak and all creation falls to its knees
You raise Your hand and calm the waves of the raging sea
You have a way of turning winter to spring
Make something beautiful out of all this suffering
chorus 2:
Here I am once again I'm in need of resurrection
Only You can take this empty shell and raise it from the dead
What I've lost to the world what seems far beyond redemption
You can take the pieces in Your hand and make me whole again, again
You have a way of turning winter to spring
Make something beautiful out of all this suffering
chorus
