5 Random Question Friday

Just Me and My Life

I decided to play along with Beth this Friday for her 5 Random Question Friday blog.

1. What's your "comfort food"?

This one is a no-brainer for sure! It definitely is CHOCOLATE. I'm not picky either about what form it's in...whether it's
a snickers bar...


chocolate cheesecake

Chocolate is definitely MY comfort food!

2.What is one thing that is on yo
ur mind right now?

I'm working frantically to get the church directories printed and bound before Sunday. Frantically is putting it mildly.

3.What's the best advice you've ever received?

Stay close to advice ever! When you feel far from God, remember, He is not the one who moved!
4.If you found $10 today, what would you do with it?

I would probably make it last for a week or more for my (almost) daily Sonic Happy Hour run.

5. What is your least favorite thing to clean in your house?

It would definitely be the litter box!
I love these guys to pieces but I hate to clean up after them. Oreo's mother DIDN'T teach him proper bathroom manners before he left her and made us his family. Hershey has much better bathroom manners.

All In A Day's Work

Last Saturday, Allan and I spent the day at our land. I piled limb after limb on our burn pile. I even managed to drag a few trees on to it. There was blood, sweat and tears, well no tears, but blood and sweat were involved! There were nearly tears though when a tree branch swung back and hit me in the head. I didn't know I was hurt until I wiped what I thought was sweat, but it was blood instead. Yes, that is a hot water heater next to the burn pile. I hope it doesn't explode and send us into orbit when we get a fire going on the brush pile.

I spy with my little eye- one Dr. Pepper can, one water bottle, one doritos package, and one 100 calorie cookie package.

Yes, this is a bullet-riddled hot water heater. Old hot water heaters make great targets for target practice. I wish I could say that I put all those holes in there, but I have to be honest and say that I didn't hit the target one time! Not once! I'm usually a pretty good shot but not this time.

Allan began to try to clean the brush around our pond. As he was backing the tractor up, I could see it all ending badly but luckily it didn't.

Watching him work made me tired. I went back up to the picnic table and drank another Dr. Pepper.

I decided to go looking for Christmas trees since there are so many beautiful cedar trees. We won't be bringing any of them into our house since we are allergic to them. There are so many to choose from anyway so how would I ever decide on the right one?
This one has a nice shape to it.

Look at all those lovely ones!

I then ran across this pitiful little Charlie Brown tree. Maybe one day it will be big and pretty as the others.

Still brush hogging!

He was listening to his ipod the whole time he was working. I KNOW the main track he was listening to was Kenny Chesney's "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy". I can just hear it now-
"She thinks my tractor's sexy
It really turns her on
She's always staring at me
While I'm chuggin along!

All in all it was a good day. Now, if i can just not break out in poison oak I'll be fine!

Friday Five! 5 things that are always in the fridge

Just Me and My Life

I decided I would do this week's Friday Five since I just stocked up on groceries yesterday. There are quite a few things that are usually in the fridge, but these five are ALWAYS in the fridge!

1. Dr. Pepper! My weakness for sure! But, seriously, I AM going to quit drinking them soon. Seriously, I am. I am going to be more serious that I have been the other 532 times that I've tried to quit. Seriously!

2. Yoplait Yogurt! Very yummy! I have a carton of this nearly every night as a snack-so many tasty flavors to choose from. Can you believe there is chocolate yogurt? If you haven't tried it, then try it! You'll be hooked.

3. 2% Milk-usually either Borden's or Braum's. We made the switch from whole milk to 2% many years ago and it's not bad at all. I don't know that I can go to 1% or skim just quite yet. That might be a little TOO healthy!

4. Ranch Dressing! We should buy stock in this company because I'm positive we have gone through many, many gallons of this over the years. My family puts it on almost anything and everything.

5. Cheese! Another MUST HAVE on a daily basis. Shredded cheese, sliced cheese, cheese sauce, block cheese-I'm not picky-gotta have them all!

I hope you've enjoyed seeing what's in my fridge so let's see what's in YOURS!
Happy Friday and have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!
