Then Poppy came

She is here. My darling and dear friend Steph and her husband Tom welcomed a beautiful , lovely soft , pink baby girl on Wednesday January 27, 2010 at 4:34pm weighing 6l bs 2 ozs and was 18.75 inches long. And she is GORGEOUS.
I am thrilled beyond words at the great joy they have been given. Anastasia is a blessing from God and is going to be a joy. I am more thrilled than I am jealous.

But I am just a tiny tiny tiny bit jealous. The joy is overwhelming and is winning out. I am not going to let anything spoil the joy I have for them.

So my new not so new lap top puts out quite a bit of heat. So much heat that it burns my legs. So I put a book in my lap. It warped the book. I know they make those little cooling things that go under them to fan them and all that computer stuff that I am not going to claim to understand.
This is for the 7 of you out there will openly admit to reading me.

What do you use on your lap top? Or well under it when it is in your lap? There was this story about lap tops killing sperm which well is not a problem for me. But the marks on my legs are.

Any tips?

If only in my dreams

Wow last nights dreams caught me off guard. I was rather surprised by them. I dreamed of my old high school crush. I had only two one freshman and sophomore year the second Junior and Senior. It was the one from my Jr. and Sr. year that made his way in to my dreams last night. I wont say that I have not thought of him years because I think of him regularly and wonder how he is.
But last night he was in my dream and came up to me when I was out and said hello and I spoke back to him asking him how he was. He told me he was sorry for the past and I told him I let it go a long time ago. Twenty years was just to long to stay mad at someone.

So anyway I was surprised by the dream

So this morning I watched Julie and Julia and now I am inspired to cook. Not that it takes much to inspire me to cook I love cooking. In fact I was looking at some continuing education classes and there is a sushi class coming up I was thinking of singing up for that or a little writing class but this particular blog is about cooking not writing.

Does anyone have a copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking? Have any of you ever cooked anything out of it? I have no intentions of cooking my way through it but I do plan to cook. I love cooking new things and have in the past told people I want some of their favorite recipes as gifts.

What do you like to cook?

Moved beyond words

Tonight I watched Taking Chance . I just can't seem to get the words to come out right to tell you all how moved I was by this film and to encourage you to take a look at it.

My View

There you go folks this is the view from my front door and the view of my house from the street where I went to find my morning paper which was not there. I would much rather hold the newspaper in my hand than read it online. Just the way I like things.
I am still snuggled up on the sofa watching Atomic Twister and the snow fall out my window.If you look at the window behind the tree that is the one I am looking out. In case you were wondering.
What is your view like this morning?

These are the little girls from a few doors down playing in the only snow in the neighborhood that is in my driveway. That is the street behind them. So you know that is the snow that closed schools. It was so cute watching the little one in the pink stand there grinning not sure what to do with the snow.
Wholly shit Batman. It is freaking cold. The high today is 20 and it is not supposed to get there until this afternoon. The snow of yesterday has now turned to ice on the roads and schools are closed. I am at home the office was closed today because well it is freaking cold. I need to get off my lazy butt and clean the house and then run to Office Max and print off and send a letter to a friend that is in jail. But I am all sucked into the new season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.
Yeah I have a friend in jail and that right now is all I am really gonna say about it. I am writing him letters and so far I am the only person writitng him.
It is still snowing. :)

We are five days into the new year and for five days in it is going pretty awesome . How has this year been so far for you? I still have to do some work at getting myself together at work but I am getting there

If you have not seen the news and don't live in the Nashville area you might be missing the fact We have had brutally cold temps and they are calling for 2-4 inches of snow on Thursday. Which should close schools, offices, and roads. If you are reading this from another part of the country and have never been in the south for a snow understand that this is most likely the only big snow we will get this year. Well it should be but this season has been weird. So it is going to snow and the Kroger will be sold out of bread , milk , and beer. Dang and I need bread.

2010 Let the Fun Begin

I am presenting my list of Ten (10) Things I want to do in 2010. FUN THINGS. Not that ever growing list of crap that must be done. Like keeping the house clean and paying my bills on time.

If you would like to join me on one of the adventures or come up with your own list I would love to see it.

1) Blow 40 out of the Water:
That's right folks I am saving and planning for a 40th birthday blow out bash. I have 9 months to plan but it is gonna rock out and it will be big.

2) Sky Dive:
I don't know if you have heard but I will be 40 this Year and this is part of my blow 40 out of the water plan.

3) Meet Poppy:
I am going to make to Fla. After Poppy comes and spend time her and her Parents.

4) Past Life Regression:
I want to do a past life regression. It has always been something that I wanted to do.

5) Visit all the National Parks :
I got the idea from a friend of my sisters and it is really more of bucket list thing so there is no way I will finish it before the year ends but I want to get going on it and put a dent in it.

6) See some Baseball:
I have not been to a ball game in ages I want to hit some here in Nashville and make my way down to Atalanta and see a Braves Game. I have not been to one since the early 1990's.

7) Museums, Classes ,Lectures, and Book Signings:
I really dig those kinds of things and I want to try to hit several this year.

8)Cross Stitch:
Yep I enjoy that too. I have a project I have been working on forever and a day and I want to get back into that.

9) Write:
I have a little short story in my head and I also want to sit down and get the family history down and on paper while my Dad and Uncle are still around.

Lets just see what pops up this year that I want to do. This space is reserved for all those things that you had no idea you wanted to do until you are presented with them.
