Autumn Days

Yesterday I met Jonathan on his lunch break. We went and had a little picnic under a nice tree at a school park! I bought some nice bread buns and some turkey meat with orange juice and a nice little coffee cake! It was very delightful! My phone plays music so it was nice  having some music! Latter John and I practiced cartwheels in the grass! It is starting to feel like fall over here just a little bit. The heat has gone down. The high yesterday was 103 but it feels a lot cooler now! I wish it was like this photo above, I do envy all of you who do get all the seasons! I hope you all are having a wonderful Autumn day:)

Doctors Visit!

Well, I went to my gynecologist today for my check up! I had to reschedule my appointment for today, thats why I hadn't written anything about it. It went very well! I love my doctor. She was very down to earth! I first thought she was the nurse because she was so young. I left her office feeling relieved that it was over but also happy that I had conquered my fear of this  particular visit! Thank you all for your sweet comments in my previous post about this subject! It wasn't as bad as I had feared, which is the result of most fears I find!

Delightful Days

I have been enjoying my stay house sitting for my grandparents! The days feel so relaxing and long here. I think because I don't feel the rush of the city and I get to have a lot more room to myself than what we have at our little flat. I have been enjoying garden tea time in the mornings and the afternoons! The birds and butterflies are my company! The sunshine seems so much sweeter and refreshing out here! The puppies have been fun to watch and love on! I know they miss their mama! Kathy is such a great gardener! Her back yard and garden is so beautiful and the front garden is amazing! I have enjoyed this little world and I'm not sure if I am ready to leave it :(

Billy: The Early Ears

Our church hosted the premier of Billy the Early Years Last night and i have to say it was very good! I didn't know how good it would be but I was surprised! When it comes out in theaters be sure to watch it! :)

Rush Is On The Dot!

BIDEN: How is it that the Democratic Party, the party of ethnics basically, how did my party get to be the party of anti-God? How did that happen? I'll tell you how it happened. We Democrats became afraid to talk about faith. We're uncomfortable talking about it. The elites of my party. The elitists of my party took over. I can hardly wait for one of these guys on the other side tell me about family values. I can hardly wait for them to tell me, a guy that's communicated everyday for 34 years to be home to put my kid to bed, I can hardly wait for them to tell me, married to the same woman 30 years, after they've been divorced three times, what values are. I can hardly wait for this to happen.

RUSH: I'm sorry, I can't do anything but laugh. (laughing) And it's not that I'm losing my mind or giddy. I find this genuinely funny, because, senator, let me tell you about the faith business. Your base, the base of your party, the kook fringe, lunatic base and many of what you would call mainstream in your party, hate religion. They're scared of it. They're scared of the faith that people have in God. And I think one of the efforts behind much of liberalism is to wipe out as much as possible of God from American society anywhere they can.

RUSH: I'll tell you what, Joe Biden, I know you're not listening, but the word will get to you. You know what your real problem, pal, is with this values business? He asked, "What in the hell happened to us on the values? What happened to the Democrat Party? I'll tell you what happened. Too many elites in our party." You can't talk about religion. You people cannot justify any religious discussion when you are pro-abortion, when you are going to make the sacrament to liberalism something like abortion, and you're going to support wild, extremist feminazis who make every abortion a political statement and cause, you are canceled out, you're canceling yourself out when you start running around talking about religious issues and faith. You talk about Big Government, not God, liberal Democrats appoint judges who push God out of the public square. And then you run around and you shout pro-choice, which means pro-abortion, then you want people to think you have values, when the number one right, that sanctity of life is something that cannot be trusted with your party, Joe? The right to life cannot be trusted in your party. A baby in the womb is at risk with your party. And you want to run around and talk about values and why the country says you don't have values? Why you have to run around to union members, "they attack our values, not gonna take it anymore." This is why Biden is losing the Catholic vote for his candidate, Obama.

New Book

Elizabeth finished David McCullough's book on Truman and is letting me  borrow it. I am excited because I didn't want to rent it from the library because I would have to renew it for like a year! It took Elizabeth a year to read and I don't know how long it will take me. I loved reading John Adams by David McCullough and 1776 so I have been eager to begin this one! I got to hear David McCullough speak when I lived in Colorado last year! He was so wonderful! I was so  honored to hear him and to get his signature on one of my books!

Movie Night

John and I had movie night the other night. We watched Shadowlands based on  C.S. Lewis and his marriage late in life. It was extremely good. I want to get the music, Its beautiful. I watched it a long time a go but could barely remember it. I'm so glad I watched it again! Make sure you have tissues on hand :)

Off To Grandpas House We Go

Jonathan and I are house sitting for my grandparents for the next two weeks! They are going on a European cruise and need us to watch their pets! We love house sitting for them because they live out of the city, in a beautiful house with a lovely yard! Its like a vacation for us when we go!

To Do List:
  1.  Clean our little flat so when we return its clean and cozy. Nothing more depressing returning to a messy house. 
  2. Pack up kitties and Mr. Turtle (He's coming also!!)
  3. Figure out what to do with our outside plants. Too expensive to drive home everyday to water.
  4. Make dinner for Jonathan and make sure to enjoy my Saturday with him:)
4:00 Tea Time sounds good this afternoon with my little children's book I got for a quarter this morning at a yard sale. Beverly Cleary is one of my favorite children's Authors. I have never read Socks before :) 

Happy Saturday to all of my blogging friends!!!

Late Night of Home Work

Its Friday night and Jonathan is studying for his math test for tomorrow morning. 10:44 and we are having tea and tuna sandwiches! I found this blog searching for a picture on google and this girl made a beautiful peach cobbler! It got me up out of my seat to do the same! I found a white cake mix and a can of apricots. I just finishing making this peach cobbler (dump cake) I used my little red ramekins! Hopefully it tastes alright! The house is starting to smell of something yummy! I am enjoying my time with Jonathan. He is doing full time school and has his full time job. I don't get to see him that much any more. Just in the early mornings and the late evenings.

I have been absent too long! I feel like I haven't anything to write about lately! I have been busy with family and such but I feel like I have been doing more of the not so interesting things lately. 

Saturday was my little nephew Elon's birthday! He turned 2! It was at Elizabeth and Benjamin's house. The whole family gathered! It was a full house with Elizabeth's family, John and I, Nathan and Himilce and Elon of course, Ruthie and Jonathan and his brother, Nathan's co worker. My grandparents and Lizy's kids she nanny's for! It was a blast! There was food, swimming, kitties, games! It felt like christmas!!
Tomorrow I have a gynecology appointment:( I'm kinda scared. This is my first time. I'm sure it will be fine! John is taking off work to go with me! He is so sweet!

Dinner For Two

Well, I have  been  cooking for Jonathan, and I have been having a grand time of it. I have found that the smaller amount items of food in the fridge or cabinets tends to have a  better  tastier meal out come than if I had a lot of ingredients to choose from!
Last night I made tuna casserole with different items I found scrounging around my cabinets! I found a can of corn that I used, a bag of macaroni noodles, a bag of Potato Gnocchi's a can of tuna. In the refrigerator I found  some cheese, lemon juice and mayonnaise! It was a success!
I hope everyone had a grand time on their Labor Day Holiday! Jonathan and I went out to chinese, then we found a furniture store that we browsed through, (every thing was way too expensive) We had fun just looking! We were on our way home and I remembered that Saver's (Thrift Store) was having a 50 percent off sale on Labor Day from 7:00 P.M. to 9:00 and we were just driving buy for me to remember! Jonathan found a nice pair of shoes for 4 dollars and I found two cute pairs of  shoes. One high heel and the other one flats! We had a lot of fun :)
