VIGIL AT THE TOP

Photo by Annisa Lam (former member of Stock.exchng)
Licensed photo DO NOT COPY


Currently I am keeping the following in my thoughts &  prayers:

-----Friends recovering from a fire. They lost everything and made it out in the knick of time. Especially praying for the children. The father in one of the families has now died (separate happening).  
-----A couple I know who would like to afford getting married this year.
-----My son who is in the military. He is in training to be a combat engineer and that can be a very dangerous job!
-----A friend who is under care at a health rehab. We hope he does not get any further complications/hospitalizations. Things are going well right now as he has been able to walk. :-)

__________________________

Note:
This post is in no particular order. Prayer/thought requests just go to the top as I hear more about what is going on. If you can think of a way to help these people, PLEASE do so. This post will be second-from-the-top during the midst of an emergency (such as an Amber Alert).

Note: I would not advise linking to this post...you will wind up with a broken link each time I have to change the post-dating to keep this a Vigil at the Top.

July 22, 2014

Got a picture of Toddler after she had eaten a chocolate chip cookie today. Messy. :-)
She was wearing a cute little sleeveless denim romper today as it was very hot out.
It got cold enough last night that I had pain from Reynaud's Phenomenon but we woke up to hotness.
Some wild flowers that got transplanted in heat did not make it when they had to tolerate this heat, too...
so, back to the drawing board with a border there.
Maybe a few of the wild flowers will make it.  



Dinner from the supermarket for an evening when I was wishing for KFC.
After eating a few bites, we established Toddler does not like coleslaw. She started dramatically spitting it.
Mommy: You don't like that?
Toddler: Uck.
Me: (handing her a bite of something she did like) This is good?
Toddler: (nods head) Good.

As far as smaller quantities of Sioux City sodas, we pay $2.26 for a four-pack at a local supermarket that carries specialty items.

Toddler did a really good job of eating the meat off his chicken legs....that's an accomplishment for a little boy. :-)
We enjoyed some Del Monte organic bananas and I noticed they smelled a lot better than the non-organic bananas we normally get. :-)
When Daddy went to get a prescription, he found Preschooler a Nerf gun for a dollar...Preschooler is so pleased and has decorated it with the big sticker that was on top of the bananas.

I found a really versatile recipe for "Chocolate Banana Buttermilk Bread" that I will make in some form(s) next month.

Photos:
---I saw a photo of a cos-play that I thought was pretty cool. Of course, people online were criticizing this group (I think from last year's Comic-Con). This kind of thing makes me angry. People tell (semi-famous) musicians that their music was mediocre or criticize something like people who went through a lot of trouble to make something like a costume....yet the critics likely will never attempt anything on that level of craftsmanship. I wish people would please take the time to learn something of what they were talking about before they damage self-esteem.
---I saw several photos of a passive solar home. I am very interested in this (though the expense looks to be great...or, at least, two much for us). Placement of windows is important in this and maybe I can work on modifying our windows a little in this respect....hmmm.

I saw a cool old photo of Michael Jackson skateboarding the other day that was captioned "Blame It On the Boogie."




Husband and I watched this performance of "Slave to the Rhythm" today and were amazed at the "Pepper's Ghost" illusion. A lot of people online think this is a holgram (or CGI or an impersonator).

July 21, 2014

-----Our toddler sat down properly on a chair today and facing forward! She sat in the chair and played with Iron Man and looked at the Walt Disney book "Thumper's Little Sisters."

-----Preschooler tried Hamburger Helper for the first time today. It was Cheesy Macaroni, sirloin, real bacon bits, a bit of Old Bay and parsley flakes. We were given a few of the multi-packs. I thought it would be a challenge...a bit of fun...my Mother used to make it taste good and I think I did good, too. There was also one of his vitamins, black seedless grapes, fuji apples, toasted French bread with butter and milk.


-----I finished reading "Abraham and Sarah: The Long Journey," a novel by Roberta Kells Dorr. The author lived in the Middle East for seventeen years! The books was written in 1995 and I inherited it from my Mother (who bought it in 2007). I did not like Sarah's character very much...fearful and manipulative and I did not see much of the spunk that Abraham saw (the author told of it but did not show it often enough). I would like it if there were a book by this author that explored Ishmael further.
Roberta Kells Dorr missionary, author, artist dies in Kentucky (2010). She was also a popular lecturer and I am hoping I can find recordings.

-----I am planning to reread "Abraham and Sarah" while spontaneously reading another I have started. I am on page 41 of Honkytonk Man by Clancy Carlile. This book was published in 1980 and my Mother purchased it in 1992 (as Number 9,280 in her collection). There are several song lyrics used that were written by the author. It is a rite-of-passage novel that the dust jacket totes as being landmark like "The Yearling," "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "Addie Pray" (the last one I have not heard of).
~~~I am going to store this with our Nashville Armchair Traveling stuff. A pet project of mine. I want our children to be well-traveled in both real life and in the limitless bounds of their imaginations.
~~~I was planning on looking up some Grand Ole Opry videos for the kids but did not get to that today. Part of the reason was I distracted over thoughts of how I would dearly have liked to take my Mother to see The Grand Ole Opry. She did get to look around there but never saw a concert.
~~~I have some of my parents records. I will soon be playing the songs of Roy Acuff and other Opry stars.
~~~If we can make it to Nashville this year, a friend might be able to visit with us. We also have a lot of friends who perform concerts there (not at the Opry).

-----We miss Oldest and are looking forward to his return from National Guard Basic Training. All these conflicts going on in the world are scaring me. A friend who was career military gave me a talk and told me not to worry and what to expect from the modern day National Guard...I try to keep that talk in mind.

So, stuff like this is what makes it hard to get ahead.
Amazon said Husband's tablet he does not use was "scratched, cracked and broken"....he took a picture and it wasn't...so much for the 100% rating he has maintained since 2004. The small amount of money for Husband's phone will not come until next month and the money for my phone will not come until a month from whenever the purchaser actually decides to pay (Ebay). A check someone wrote us has not cleared. So, that's almost 4 hundred not arrived and MOST may NEVER arrive.
But hey...we are up $2.75 that I earned...on a gift certificate.
Some days.

-----Toddler explored a show he hasn't watched yet- "Dino Squad" which is about teens who turn into super hero dinosaurs.
-----Did some arm and leg exercises (while listening to AC/DC). Re-aggravated my sciatic nerve on my right leg which has been giving me pains since about July 2nd (so ready for that to go away).
-----I want to become skilled at drawing flowers. This would include pen and ink drawing. I draw little doodles of flowers all over the place...basically, the same doodles since high school. It would be nice to fill the margins of my many idea, project and class notebooks with beautiful flowers.

-----I have added Bolthouse Farms Stone Fruit Juice to our next grocery list. It combines plum and apricot.
-----A copycat recipe for Jimmy John's Avocado Sandwich Spread.

-----Husband was able to get some things that we had in storage. The lawn mower we normally use broke and we were given my Mother's lawnmower (which Husband brought home). Husband is hard on mowers but we are hoping to get 7 years or so of use out of my Mother's mower (happy to have it).


Preschooler is into Peppa Pig and Beanie Babies. I added one to my Wish List (for him). He tells me he would like "a small one and a big one and all the friends." It is too bad we don't have the ability to travel to the UK while Preschooler and Toddler are this age...there is a very popular Peppa Pig's World amusement park.

Fisher-Price's description says this toy is for a girl. I beg to differ...our (male) Preschooler likes both Peppa Pig and dollhouses.

-----We had more of the ice cream leftover from our observance of National Ice Cream Day on the 20th. Husband went out and bought three cartons of Breyer's...Strawberry, Coffee and Girl Scout Thin Mints. When I asked Preschooler, who fell asleep before having some the first night, if he wanted some...he came RUNNING and stated enthusiastically that he wanted Strawberry without having me list the rest of the kinds.
-----I found a CD that a friend gave us called "Go Out With Joy." I haven't opened it yet and I am going to find the tracks to listen and see if Preschooler would like it as a stocking stuffer. The Book of Isaiah is qouted on the front.

Unconscious Mutterings.....an association meme.




Strong
The Charles Atlas Song from Rocky Horror Picture Show. Lou Ferrigno. Strong coffee. I was going to use espresso to make a copycat Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino but I don't have all the indgredients and I think we will just buy more espresso beans next month (in the interest of freshness and having good coffee to drink). The Cowardly Lion. Today is the anniversary of when Bruce Lee died. Bruce Lee. Gale force winds...I just learned that there is such a thing as a "Gale Warning" issued in maritime locations. There are some beautiful strongboxes. I wonder what happened with that strongbox from the Titanic that there was intent to open (back in the late 80s). Strong's Concordance.

Bathing
Oh good...one-piece bathing suits are making a comeback.

Title
A title for a car. Boxers fighting to hold onto the title. Coming up with a catchy title.


Tick Tock
The clock in Peter Pan. Tik-Tok in "Return to Oz." Tick Tock...as said in a threat by some movie villian. An analog sound. There is a novel by Dean Koontz called "Tick Tock" and I have no idea what the plot is...I should get on Goodreads and check this out.

Dispute
I have a friend who is having a dispute with a pool contractor...it really sounds like one should never do business with Classic Pool of New Carlisle and Troy, Ohio...she has documented MULTIPLE safety issues...I hope it is resolved soon.

Magazine
I used to get all sorts of complimentary magazines...there is a difference between complimentary and free in the magazine world (free subscriptions do not count towards certain numbers that are needed for taxes).



Stupid!
DRIVERS!!!!


Safely
Stupid drivers make it hard to arrive safely.



Reposition



So wrong


This post is a work-in-progress. :-)

-----Wondering why I am the one who is at fault when I figure out that people are lying to me. Hmmm.....yeah, nice logic. Apparently, it is a big flaw that I DON"T TRUST PEOPLE WHO ARE LYING. I guess I should learn to bow to those who have DECIDED they are superior. The truth would be so much easier.
-----There is now something worse than the c-string (in women's fashion trends)...the strapless panty. Sigh.Oh...it's couture...right. Please pass some regulations as I don't want to see this on anyone in real life.

Saturday 9 Meme......


1) The subject of this song is frankly sexual. Do you blush easily?
Yes, and I am told that is unusual in today's day and age.

2) Prince is his real name (Prince Rogers, to be exact). Growing up, his relatives called him "Skipper." Do you have any nicknames within your family?
Yes, one of these will be the name of my coffee haus (someday). :-)

3) Prince says he's "obsessed" with Mozart and reads whatever he can find about the composer. What's the last book you read?
I am currently reading a book of my mother's about a wagon train during the time the Mormons were both persecuted and aggressors..."The Fancher Train" by Amelia Bean. If this is the part of history I am thinking, there is no way this story will have anything close to a happy ending. The book came out in 1958 and my mother bought it in 1968...one of her first couple hundred books (she would go on to have and read THOUSANDS).

4) Between Prince and The Beach Boys, the Corvette is a much sung-about car. Tell us about your vehicle.
Our vehicle is not a much-sung about car...but a much sung-in car. My husband is a musician and also I anticipate many sing-alongs as Toddler and Preschooler get older.

5) In the 1980s, when Prince was popular, MTV could turn a song into a hit. In 2014, how do you hear new music?
The "Discover" function on Spotify. Last night I was listening to "Hey Brother" by Avicii which was recommended because I like some Calvin Harris songs.

6) In 1982, when "Little Red Corvette" ruled the airwaves, Braniff Airways shocked the travel industry and threw passengers into chaos by declaring bankruptcy. When did you last fly? Did your trip go smoothly?
Over a decade ago and there was turbulence.
We usually drive. I love trains and I am hoping we can take the little ones on their first Amtrak trip this Summer.

7) 1982 is also the year Disney opened Epcot. Have you ever been to a Disney park?
Walt Disney World...Magic Kingdom, parts of Hollywood Studios and parts of Epcot.
I was hoping we could go to Disneyland when Husband displays some artwork this year...but it does not look like we will be able to come up with a way of affording either going to the park or getting the artwork to California. :-(

8) 1982 is the year Cheers premiered. The sitcom was set in a bar where "everybody knows your name." Tell us about your favorite local bar or restaurant.
We like a local spaghetti house with great prices. I love that the garlic bread tastes slightly sweet and it is a similar spaghetti house that first acquainted me with the idea of sugar in spaghetti sauces.

9) The 1980s were considered a highpoint in professional tennis, with Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe dominating the sport. Do you play tennis?
Not in a long time. I wish I could get Husband to play with me.

Thursday Thirteen.....

1.
-----10 Free Porch Swing Plans. I want to look at the movable framework and another one a bit closer. Husband has said he will build me one, if we come up with a workable plan. :-)


2. POPSICLE RECIPES:
-----Peaches and Cream Greek Yogurt Popsicles
-----Minted Watermelon and Lemon Ice Pops. Layered. They look pretty.

-----Slow Cooker Beer Chicken Tacos with Jalapeño Slaw (link to follow since it is proving impossible to do on the cell phone).
This post is a work-in-progress. :-)

One of the roses that Husband gave me recently.
He brings me all of our long-stemmed roses and it is very romantic. :-)

Things I am looking forward to:
---Trying a new recipe...Italian Sausage Hoagies.
---Sometime within the next week we are going to see Maleficent.
---Possibly a potluck cookout around the end of the month. :-)
---Our wedding anniversary. Plus, planning for a vow renewal next year.
---The Dedication of our daughter next month.
---Turning the Star Trek movie back on after I get done typing this. "Into Darkness" is on Netflix.

Yesterday,Michelle Obama announced an initiative to end Veteran Homelessness by 2015.
---In California, voters have approved a plan to spend $600 million building homes for homeless veterans. This money will be raised by the sale of bonds.

Husband photographed the beauty of the nightshade before removing it. :-)
It is the first nightshade for this year.
The first nightshade I have seen at this house.

"New study will measure dogs' usefulness to Vets with PTSD"
Currently, service dogs are not a funded way for soldiers to cope with PTSD as the military is unsure of their effectiveness in helping with psychiatric ailments. I am reading about the (non-military) program called "Train a Dog Save a Warrior."
---Train a Dog Save a Warrior offers service to those in/formerly in the military. It is not just for those who battle PTSD...but also Military Sexual Trauma(MST) and Traumatic Brain Injury.

One Veteran is lobbying for a medal for PTSD.

Preschooler's words:
"You are a bologna."
"How dare you, Dufus?!" (diaper change)
"The dark side of the ring." (Daddy found his ring)
"I'm counting on it."
""The dark side of my pocket. Nothing's ever been there before." (puts parachute guy in hoodie)

It's a Sweet Life!

This sweet pepper from dinner yesterday had a pretty interior. :-)



-----We watched "Ender's Game" a few nights ago. A Redbox rental. Great...like the book was.
-----Yesterday, we did a fire in the firepit. It was cozy and beautiful though we had to put it out after a few minutes because the wind was picking up. I got a photo of my happy Husband standing with Preschooler. This was Toddler's first fire and she was fascinated. It would have been fun if my son who is at Basic Training could have been there.



A couple of Preschooler moments yesterday:
---Told me that he loves Daddy because "He's a wild man. I am a wild man. We are both wild mans."
---Put his sister's socks on his hands and said "clap hands" in German. (sorry I

"He's one of my neighbors. He is just a wild neighbor of mine. He's mine. He's silly doing that."
-Preschooler on our elderly neighbor backing up over and over while mowing the boulevard grass. I am sure there is some reason why he was doing the mowing so slowly and repetitively. Though I never did figure out why he drove so close to our tree line last year that he got caught on a small fruit tree.



-----I wish that we had a pair of binoculars to see Comet Jacques this month. We will try to see it with the naked eye anyway...if awake.
-----We are planning Toddler and Preschooler's first planetarium trip later in the month. :-)
-----I am slowly listening to a lecture on small bodies by Mike "Pluto Killer" Brown. Small bodies are basically anything that orbits the sun other than the eight planets. I am interested in finding out about the various comets.
-----I have been sharing with friends and relatives one of the milder ways that I make Spanish Rice...as a sort of PSA. Husband cannot have cumin and jalapenos upset his stomach. I know I can't be the only one out there who wants tasty Hispanic dishes while still having to deal with allergies and sensitivities.
-----The house has been nicely smelling of garlic and beef all day. We are having a classic pot roast sans carrots with whiskey substituted for the beef broth. Slow cookers are awesome!
-----With dinner, we are trying some artisanal sweet potato rolls. They are a freezer product and I will have to add a photo and review here later.
-----I got a nice photo of Husband cleaning a leather jacket to be made into Goth attire (spikes,studs and such) . :-) I felt appreciated because I had only recently given him the leather cleaning spray, from when I once owned a pair of leather tennis shoes, and he is already using it. I don't know what the name of that spray is but will have to look, so I can recommend it...suffice it to say that leather-cleaning spray from the shoe store works efficiently and well. :-)
-----Photos of the kids today: Toddler standing and playing with a clump of tree leaves. Preschooler once he started tiring...it is very hard to get a photo of a little boy who is quickly jumping around pretending to be a coconut.

In My Life.....

My son is in his third day of basic training!
My thoughts are with him everyday and we will miss him over these 4-5 months!!!

11:15 A.M.
Gloomy outside again today. Something is wrong with our Netflix so Preschooler did not get to watch his fave after breakfast this morning (Ben 10). Preschooler is watching X-Men. Making a Spanish Rice with Bacon in a bit. I came up with a whole page of blog ideas last night. I woke up with a sinus headache (for the fourth day in a row) and took a fun selfie of how tousled and high my bangs are...of course, I used the "Rise" filter. :-)
I can feel that sinus headache persisting underneath it all.

(Later in the day)
Me: Did you see the picture I took of my hair this morning?
Husband: Yes, I did.
Me: What did you think of it?
Husband: It was interesting.


12:15 P.M.
Toddler's response to Daddy's request for a Good Morning Hug..."Not today."
First bit of bacon is finished for Spanish Rice at lunch. A bit ago, Toddler was wearing his Thor helmet with one wing in the front and one in the back and discussing the X-Men with Daddy.



My mind and my olfactory nerves were celebrating the fact that bacon is super and the second batch yielded enough fat for the Spanish Rice.



Sweet peppers make me happy. They are always beautiful. :-)


Chop,chop,chop.
There were also two Sunset Produce yellow onions chopped.
---I was happy to find that there are recipes on the Sunset Produce site and I plan to explore them when I get time.



Mmm. Veggies sautéing in bacon fat for Spanish Rice. The house smelled really GOOD. When done, they joined the (now crumbled) bacon in the fridge and the rice was browned in the tad of bacon drippings left and some canola.
---If making this be sure to get all the veggies out before browning the rice. You do not want to be picking out crispy bits of vegetables while cooking (or worse, while eating).
---If you have never made Spanish Rice, this is the spectacular part. You put the liquid in when the rice is still hot and it makes steam and sizzle. For safety sake, I now just put part of the liquid at first. The liquid for the boil and simmer is to be put all the way up to about 1/4 inch from the top of the pan!
---We saved the onion peels for dyeing eggs. I want to achieve a red color with our next batch. We try natural stuff for coloring eggs all year.  :-)



This boil and simmer-down was water and a cup or two of Natural Harvest Organic Free Range Chicken Broth. When the boil came, I also put in a bouillon cube. :-)

Took some great photos during the waiting parts
---Husband snuggling with our sleeping daughter and watching cartoons
---Daughter wearing her fairy wings that family friends gifted her with.

The rice after the first boil and simmer-down.




Seasoning
4 teaspoons minced garlic
Sea salt to taste
Restaurant-style black pepper to taste
Plenty of dried cilantro
Really good Hot Hungarian paprika sprinkled on top

   

I did a second boil and simmer-down (rare for me). Normally, the seasoning is done mainly in the simmer-down. Here I added a couple more cups of chicken broth and another cup of water. When it was simmering, I sprinkled taco seasoning across the top. (We like this one because it does not bother Husband's soy allergy. A gift from Mother-in-Law who knows how hard it is to avoid soy.) I included the really good paprika in this photo. :-)
---A second boil and simmer-down is normally just if the rice has not cooked good enough. When you do a second boil and simmer, it must be watched very careful so it is not overdone (causing mushy rice).
---There is normally cumin put in the seasoning but Husband has a problem with it. Cumin is so much a part of many good Hispanic dishes. There is also a diced jalapeno(s) normally put in during the simmer-down (again Husband's stomach). We will prevail over food allergies and sensitivities! See our solutions!


I was so happy to find tomato paste in the cupboard (puree can be used but just doesn't cut it). When a good amount of liquid was gone and I was starting to get a mass of rice again, I added 4 tablespoons of tomato paste and made sure it was mixed in well as the simmer-down finished. At this point it would have been too spicy for husband's stomach, too many raw spices for my system to handle and too unfinished for my palate.
The rice was allowed to cool for about twenty minutes and then put in a big plastic bowl.
"It's like gold. If you want to make a girl happy, buy her tomato paste."



Hunt's 100% Natural Tomato Paste. There is a code on the back, to enter online, that will help Hungry Children.



The rice after a twenty minute rest.
See the tomato paste was mixed in well.



---A can of Happy Harvest (Aldi) diced tomatoes...drained with liquid left to the surface of the tomatoes in the can.
---A can of Happy Harvest Stewed Tomatoes drained and each piece cut in half in the pan with a spoon. There are various bits of other veggies included with this brand of stewed tomatoes. This could also be rinsed to remove some of the salt before adding it to the pan.
---Heated through for five minutes (and then the veggies and bacon get added in).
---I told Husband how I wished this was a large amount of fresh tomatoes!



All the fat that didn't go back in the dish. I tilted the plate slightly back by storing it on top of stuff in the fridge and that made the fat so much easier to remove as it drained to one place. Doing it this way makes it so the veggies don't have to be left out, refrigerated separately or removed from the congealed fat.
---Of course, I showed Husband the grossness. Yes, it really was yellow. I don't know the sanitation aspects of using the grease again at this point...I suppose.



Heating the veggies, tomatoes and bacon through on medium low for about ten minutes until all the tomato liquid and any bacon grease is absorbed. This smells WONDERFUL and reminds me of the "Mexican Goulash" that my father used to make...I think the thing missing in this mixture is chicken...yes, I had to taste this part for the happy memory.

So, as is often the case at our house, the Spanish Rice took five or six hours. It ended up being First Dinner. I take my Spanish Rice seriously. :-)



The veggies and rice are reunited.
The finished dish was yummy!


We all played for a bit and Husband and I worked online on various projects after the rice.We took a couple of awesome photos of Preschooler. He was riding on a toy zebra, wearing a big cardboard ring around his neck as armor (Daddy made it), holding onto the rim of his baseball hat, having his plastic ball bat down the back of his shirt and giving an awesome intense look. Preschooler looked ready for battle and said he was a super hero. I would have guessed he was a knight and Husband thought he was ready to battle Zombies. :-)

---We spent some time hanging out on the porch and got a sweet photo of our daughter wearing a soft and warm purple unicorn blanket with a pink horn. The unicorn part goes on her head. A present from her grandparents. :-)
---We bundled up and went outside to play in the backyard. Took a picture of our son among his Little Tikes stuff and a couple of pictures of Daddy helping our daughter with a riding toy.

Husband went to gather supplies for some Audiofeed Music Festival projects. When he came back in, I was informed the police had just been called on my Husband....I was like WHAT??! Apparently, we have a busybody neighbor who decided she does not like us burning cardboard in the firepit and there is an ordinance against it. Bonfires and coping with a city with very little recycling efforts are going to be all the harder now that we are the only people in the neighborhood who have this "ordinance" enforced...sigh.
---The general Facebook consensus was this is STUPID! We are talking a firepit and she would not even have been able to see it was cardboard if we had not built a storage structure instead of keeping the cardboard collecting on the back porch. Apparently, the police were told it was trash we were burning and probably led to believe it was some sort of towering inferno.The police think we can use it as a firestarter without it being a problem (actually what it is....we progress through to bonfire and/or hotdogs and marshmallows). We will just have to dispose of bigger pieces and cut everything down smaller from now on. Let us hope we do not decide to do any kind of burning on a day this lady's windows are open (pretty far away) again. There are all sorts of ordinances including a clause to alter the context, if appropriate, to a situation and have that be against the code (what?). I hope our Bonfire Season is not totally crushed. Wow.


Took some photos before bed of Toddler and Preschooler playing in the wagon...including with the huge Tigger that Preschooler got for Easter. Also, photographed Toddler as she went around with my shoes...she took several steps. :-)


We did get the Netflix fixed and Preschooler started watching "Jumanji: The Animated Series" today. I screened the first three episodes yesterday. Great for kids..repetitive for adults. I want to read the book.


We were supposed to have a friend over tonight but that will have to be rescheduled. :-(


 .

Spread the word!!!



I hope you enjoyed some of our day. 

May your every day be an adventure!

:-)
