Hello Diary..

Your independent, non-religious, don’t fit in with the old too old for the new, doing it my way, born again heathen here.. 😀 has been a few days since I have paid s visit, have been busy chartering a course for the future and taking care of business…had been raining earlier but has stopped for the moment, Bree is still in bed so thought I would pop in and leave a few thoughts…

The last couple of days have been pleasant outdoors so did some maintenance tasks and run the vac indoors.. then yesterday decided to deal with some veggies, also made some popcorn chicken…did pick, snap, blanch and freeze two pounds of green beans..

Also froze more tomtoes…

Also did a few more cucumbers and while the kitchen were in a mess, decided to make some of my “cobbler”, normally I use blackberry pie filling for me but only had apple pie filling, 20 oz. can… that being said, I “greased” a 8 “ aluminum pan with some butter..

Then added the filling..

Made a topping mixing together 1 cup of Quick Oats, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, 3/4 cup oleo, I lightly melted the oleo so the topping would spread easy…

Put the topping over the filling…

Put the “cobbler” in the toaster oven for 22-25 minutes on 350 and done…

That pretty much took care of yesterday, summer weather is back so will play the rest of the week by ear…still have lots to do…

Getting off subject briefly, while venturing to the store to get supplies, etc. encountered a young man who was N.R.A, proud of it and talking about the procedure to get a permit to carry a gun… I ask him “why do you want a permit to carry a gun, what do you need to carry a gun for?”.. He replied “there will be someone out there who can defend you if needed”.. I ask him “how old he was” and he said “26”.. I then ask him “were you in the service” and he said “No”.. I then said “you have had plenty of opportunity to sign up, put on the uniform and defend me, instead you stayed home with Mom and Dad.. how come you suddenly have backbone?”.. he turned around and left without saying another word, you suppose it was something I said??.. 😀

That being said, will get away from the “dark side” and, with the sun out, look for the better and brighter side.. 😀 and, with the sun being out, will leave now, have planning to do, stones to unturn and rainbows to chase.. will leave some thoughts of others for the mind to contemplate…

“Never be bullied into silence, never allow yourself to be made a victim, accept no one’s definition of your life, define yourself”… Robert Frost

“You wouldn’t worry so much about what others think of you if you realize how seldom they do”.. Eleanor Roosevelt

“The thinking that got us to where we are is not the thinking that will get us to where we want to be”.. Albert Einstein

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together”… Marilyn Monroe

That being said and Bree is up, it is off to new adventures on the path least traveled we go!.. will return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise, not sure when… still chasing rainbows, right Israel Kamakawiwo’ole??.. 😀
