Ten on Tuesday

1. I can't help it.  Whenever I see U.S. Representative Allen West I can't see him as a congressman or a leutenant colonal, I see a character on the Peanuts.  Speaking of which, it's that time of year again.... The Charlie Brown Specials!

2. Family Handyman Dot Com.... You had me at the adorable Dollar-Savvy Shed.

3. Obama's America 2016.... How do all American's not know about this film?  Without a doubt the most important movie you'll ever see at the theater.  An eye-opener to say the least.

4. Could life be any better?  Okay, yes.  But at the end of the day, I've got it all.  I'll keep my apple cart just the way it is.

5. Tonight on the menu: french toast with Panera bread, bacon & orange juice.  According to Lauren, "It was the best breakfast supper EVER!"

6. In clumps.  That's how Abby's hair has been coming out of her head.  She will have no hair left in her head by Christmas if she keeps this up.  Sigh.  Her eczema has stepped it up all of the sudden.  I'm nervous.  I think it's time to seek a second opinion.

7. One of the best wines I've tasted came from Wide River Winery.... Can't wait to get back to Iowa for Girls' Weekend with the family and get my hands on a few more bottles of that tasty drink.

8. The very best chocolate cake I've ever laid my lips on.  Yeah, I made it last week.  The Most Amazing Chocolate Buttermilk Cake Ever.  There it is.  Be warned.  Once you've make it for people, it won't be the last.

9. To my sister-in-law.... Tonight I sat down at the computer with a glass of wine.  Now I'm on my second.  That much wine tastes much better on the deck in Wenatchee.  Ahhhh, the days.

10. I like it much better when people walk into my life than out of it.  Lots of footsteps walked back in my door today. {smile}

Ten on Tuesday

1. It absolutely drives me crazy when toothpaste gets on the cap.  I hate to be so fanatical about something so absolutely insignificant, but I truly despise it.

2. I'm fond of the girls learning from others.  Sometimes I believe the impact others make with a single action is ten times as powerful as any single action I can make.  On the other hand, it's hard to see them learning the What-Not-to-Dos from people they look up to.  They're too little to see the faults in their role models.

3. Good morning hugs & kisses from my girls NEVER get old.

4. Reevaluating.... it's not as fun as it sounds.

5. After a weekend with good friends in Michigan Geoff has fallen in love with releasing lanterns.  I've become fond of Moonshine.  I think we're evolving backwards.

6. My new favorite author just might be John Green.  I was a big fan of The Fault in Our Stars.  The story, the writing, the way it touches the reader.  Fantastic!

7. If I wanted to wake up to 180% humidity (okay, I'm exaggerating a little) in September I would still be living in Florida.  This weather is zapping every ounce of energy I have.  Yuck!

8. Thank you to the girls' teachers.  I was beginning to lose faith in teachers' diligence on correcting children's homework.  Thank you for proving me right that doing your school work right does matter.

9. Tired.  Hot.  And sooooo tired.  Please cool off soon.  I'm too young to feel this damn old.

10. One of my favorite things: Lauren creeping into the kitchen in the morning while I'm making lunches and just wanting to hang out.  Love that kid!
