HA! HA! I'm laughing at you guys! Temps in the 70's!!! Boy are you missing out! It's 5 degrees here and has been snowing for a week solid, accumulated about 25 inches of fresh white fluff. Because of the lake effect snow, areas around us have gotten a lot more. We must love it, that's why we stay, never a dull moment. Although, I've entertained thoughts of doing it more Lynn's way in a couple of years. A few years ago we received over 260 inches for the winter.

Sandy, The Muppet Christmas Carol has been a family favorite for years. A yearly must see for us, although my daughter-in-law cannot understand our enthusiasm. This Christmas Eve Clementine asked her mom and I to put our pajamas on and watch a movie. We all snuggled down to The Polar Express. I spent most of the movie watching her expressions of awe, as she doesn't watch very much TV, it was most precious. And since we were having a nontraditional meal all I had to make was a spinach bread bowl, cheese ball and plate a few other snacks!... my family still doesn't like to do dishes though.

Time to get the New Year's food going. Dan requested appetizers as he has difficulty pacing himself with those and then full for the main meal. So this year it's grape jelly wieners, BBQ meatballs, Nachos, fruit and vegies. Before any eating is done though Dan and Dave have to assemble the kitchen center we gave Clementine for her birthday yesterday... I'd forgotten how heavy it was!

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season! Here's to leaving 2017 far behind.

Love to all, :loves

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

I just checked and it won't be long before the new year arrives in your neck of the woods. :bana:

We seem to be having another mildish day again today. I'm not complaining, well yes I am about the heat....But, 70's are great! It's those dang 90ies days loaded with humidity that zap me...
Last evening we watched a couple hour documentary on satellites and how they help us understand our earth better. I was floored! For instance, did you know that according to the information gleaned from satellites they now know that it isn't so much the giant forests that provide most of the oxygen on the earth but the enormous plankton blooms that occur every year in the world oceans. Watching this special helped me to better understand how interconnected all things, processes etc... are on the planet. If you ever get the chance to view it, it is called, "Earth From Space." 8)

Kim I must get the recipe for your grape jelly wieners and those BBQ meatballs. It sounds unusually good! LOL I wonder how grape and peanut butter wieners would turn out... You know, something like "Goober grape" sausages or something. We had a couple of simple items to make it a no fuss but plenty of yum for our simple evening celebration. I made a small cold shrimp plate with some shrimp cocktail sauce, a chicken cheese ball and crackers, easy cheesy lemon bars, (sort of lemon cream cheese brownies) and some chips sort of like Sun chips. It was fun listening to a more classic rock kind of music countdown rather then the latest pop artists with their dime a dozen songs that is usually the fair. George and I really got down to some of the music of Australian Artists like, Jimmy Barnes etc. This one I remember he sang shortly before midnight, "Working Class Man" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erSJGrpfnOI

Okay I better get busy... Thinking of all of you as we welcome in the New Year.
hugs,
Sandy

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! :hithere :sunflower: :bana: :sunflower: :bana: :sunflower:

Hope this first day of the new year finds you all safe, happy and content. Upon arriving at Sunrise yesterday evening we were greeted by Clementine, and their two puggles, all were wearing tutus... and nothing else, typical happy greeting! The meatballs were a hit! My recipe is pretty precise so pay careful attention. This makes quite a lot of tablespoon size meatballs. I mince a handful each of broccoli, celery, onions and less than a handful of garlic. Add two eggs, about a half cup of oatmeal and two pounds of ground beef, season with your favorite herbs. Mix well, scoop out a tablespoon at a time roll into a ball. Cook on medium heat in a lightly oiled frying pan until evenly cooked (I've been experimenting with coconut oil lately). put meatballs in a crock pot, cover with your favorite BBQ sauce, cook for a few hours on medium. While in the middle of taking an on-line course for work I asked Dave to stir the meatballs. He was so helpful! He thought it looked very lumpy for sloppy joes and did his best to smooth it out!... I was very grateful for the help. Grape jelly wieners are very simple. Put a packaged of precooked sausages in a crock pot. Mix together a tablespoon or two of corn starch with about 1 1/2 cup of grape jelly and about a half cup of Dijon mustard. Coat wieners well and cook on medium heat for a couple of hours. Periodically stir each appetizer while cooking...it's not necessary to smash the meatballs. Well, if you'd like them to remain meatballs. If, however you desire sloppy joes, then smash away!

Clementine's kitchen center remains in the box. The first sentence of the directions says, "Please set aside at least two or three hours for a fast assembly." They decided to put together the bike instead. This morning Dan sent a picture of the diagram of the kitchen center with only a question mark as explanation. Oh, dear I might have to go over and assemble it myself.

Clementine entertained us until her bedtime, then we played a couple of hands of euchre. Dave and I are always partners of course, easily able to predict each other’s next move... needless to say, we laughed a lot during the massacre, ours of course. Our parents often played euchre while we were growing up. A common saying was, “Got the horn!" We agreed last night we really didn't know exactly what it meant. After that game we realized it meant your team didn't give away two points by managing to win one trick, only one. By the end of the evening we used that term for almost every hand! Don't know if you all play euchre at all, but the word, "Trump," is used quite often. We all were quite saddened by the correlation of a game we love to play and our, ...sitting president. Even went so far to look up whether that was really his last name. By the way his last name was changed, but not by Donald. It was decided then and there we would use a different word in our game. None of the substitutes were really very nice.

About two minutes to midnight we turned on the television waiting for the ball to drop. Trying to be as quiet as possible, so not to wake Tiny, Dave walked toward the sliding glass door intending to open the champagne bottle on the deck. When he was about two feet away the cork popped by itself, ricocheting off the door pane, the sound echoing throughout the house! Rachel has very large eyes, you should have seen them after that! I just leaned over and whispered, "Rachel, this is your future." Turning our attention to the TV we all cheered quietly and for some reason, "Happy Birthday!" came out of my mouth. Mind you there was very little drinking going on, Rachel and I don't drink at all! Getting ready to leave, Dave picked up our very large three crock crockpot. A minute later we heard a loud clamor of him falling down the last few steps. Before even checking to see if he was alright we all burst out laughing, agreeing this year was probably not going to be much different than the last.

Once again, I wish all of you have a very wonderful new year full of laughter and love.

Love, Kim

((((((((KIM))))))) Hidee HO!
I giggled my way through your post imagining helpful Dave and those sloppy Joes , the infamous champagne bottle cork, and his graceful exit down the steps. (Hope he was alright.) Those corks can be unexpected projectiles don't I know. I was expecting to seriously have to pry the stubborn cork out of the bottle (looked like way too much cork for the bottle opening) but I gave one tiny half-hearted tug and POP!!! away went the cork narrowly missing George and giving his heart a run for the money! I almost never drink...I just cannot handle even small amounts as I get sleepy and terribly uncoordinated. But I generally make an exception at new years since it is always just the two of us.

As I type, a storm is brewing over the escarpment. Actually it has been mildly rumbling for an hour now and I have been debating whether to go ahead and let the bunnies out and feed and clean their hutch. We are under cover but, well, you know lightening doesn't consider a carport any kind of serious barrier. Most all our storms last year formed and moved in the direction of Sydney, turning into real monsters and causing damage. I hate to enjoy our luck at the expense of others, but I am grateful those storms didn't linger.

Thanks for the recipes, KIm. They sound just what I have been looking for. I have a feeling I will never be able to make either of them without thinking of your very entertaining Dave and his mishaps. I'm thinking, what a wonderful year this is going to be! I am determined to fight, fight, fight for our democracy. LOL And by golly, I'm not giving up until we see the backside of "you know Who." Somehow it is easier if we don't actually say his name so G and I have gotten in the habit of calling him some generic term. Maybe when it is all said and done we will see what if any benefits towards "Light and Life" this craziness has produced. It better be good as 2017 has been a rough and discouraging year.... okay
sorry...enough of my whining. :oops:
Here's too a great year!!!! :bana: :bana: :bana:

I love you guys!
Sandy

P.S. Did Dan ever get Tiny's kitchen put together? My kids ran into that putting together Eli's desk we gave him. Now that it is together he loves having his own space. That boy loves to draw and create! :cheers: While I was visiting he was making colored fire alarms for the walls. Sent one back with me for G too so our house would be protected. :lol:

Cool breezes and crisp clear air wished for my friends down under!

Thankfully Dave was fine, otherwise our laughter would have been terribly misplaced. Over the years champagne corks have often gone array, unpredictable little buggers! You're welcome for the recipes, today I'm making Spicy Sopa.

I sympathize so about the weather. Our last two summers have been unusually hot and humid, two of my not favorite things. We live in a little hollow surrounded by trees and it's wonderful, except need to power wash the mold off the siding of our house at least twice a year, yuck! And the weather patterns are so much more severe with wind and rain than I can ever remember. I like a strong wind, but the last couple of years extremely high winds often sway treetops teetering dangerously close to snapping. We thought that the trees that can break off and damage our vehicles and the roof have already wreaked their havoc, but now with the added force, that's always a possibility... I still love the wind. For some time lake water levels have been receding more and more year after year, but in the last two all that has been lost has been replenished and then some! The shorelines used to be covered in beautiful sugar colored sand, unsightly shrub and reeds were growing thirty feet or more where it used to be only water. Now you step right into the water with no beach in sight and these odd hardy trees and shrubs poking out of the water. All a part of Urantia's growing pains I guess when you think about it, it's all beautiful, but still a little dangerous. By the way the word, escarpment, evokes an array of wonderful visuals for me.

As far as 'you know who' goes, I feel like a character in Harry Potter and afraid to say the name Voldemort out loud. Anyway, I have to believe everything happens for a reason,... everything happens for a reason...but still feel the need to apologize to the world and still cant quite understand how this happened! It continues daily to haunt and overshadow our lives and an irreparable rift has rent relationships of family and friends. This too shall pass, but not quickly enough, who knows how long the damage will linger. Okay shaking it off with a shudder.

There has to be a story behind the colored fire alarms! Eli sounds so sweet!!! Grandkids, they fill your heart so quickly, sometimes it's difficult to hold all the love isn't it? Clementine has already declared, "I'm an artist Grandma!" Half a shelf in our kitchen is full of art and craft supplies. :lol: can hardly close the doors. For Christmas we gave her four bottles of glitter glue. She spent a long time(at home ha ha!) systematically emptying all of them into a pile onto a piece of construction paper, "Making a glitter mountain," as a get well card for Uncle Kenny. Rachel said, "It finally dried!" For her birthday we took three Mylar balloons. Our project for several minutes after that was taping all the little balloons from her party to the Mylar ones. New Years Day she'd tied one of them to her sandal with a the long ribbon. It was a new game. She'd throw them up in the air, giggle and run away. I think the sandal was supposed to land on our heads, ...but I'm still a little fuzzy on the rules!

Dan did finish the kitchen center! It only took three hours. Think Tiny's help added a few extra minutes to the construction. Guess she kept trying to fill it up with food and dishes the whole time during the process. She loves it, by the way and it warms Rachel's heart to watch her play and pretend.

The best present I received for Christmas was when Dan and Rachel asked Clementine what she wanted to be when she grew up. She responded, "Um... a grandma." :love :loves :kiss: :roll :D

Well, I'd better get started on crossing things off my list. Thanks for 'the cuppa' and the chat! Love you!

Kim

Oh that is just the best!!! I think you should give grandma seminars. LOL Seriously, I can see you up there teaching us how to let go our adult inhibitions and be a little kid again...well a responsible "little kid." .. One who can enjoy making glitter mountains without worrying about the effect it might have on the carpet and clothes etc... :sunflower: I bet it is gorgeous and you know, Eli sounds much like Tiny, full of wonder and creative ideas. We like to get on skype and both of us work on "art projects. Sometimes there are no words for 10 minutes or so as we both color cut and paste 8000 miles apart. But he gets busy with school and I have to back off a bit as the time is so limited in the evenings.
There has to be a story behind the colored fire alarms! Eli sounds so sweet!!!
At one point Eli was afraid of tornadoes and fires etc after drills at school. It's like he never realized such things were in the world to worry about. But then he made peace by sort of being proactive and being prepared. So now he makes fire alarms and talks about what we need to do if there is a fire or dangerous weather. The child is fascinated by extreme weather. Who knows, he may grow up to be a meteorolgist some day on the weather channel... one who paints and colors the weather for us? :lol:

Oh I must tell you that we had "cool crisp air today! :sunflower: Thank you! :bana: G and I decided to get a little grocery shopping done while it was cool so our kale wouldn't go bad so quickly (kale hates to be hot... can't blame it there) Almost a waste of a good day!

Alright, now you must tell us what Spicy Sopa is? :lol: I haven't a clue. :lol: But it sounds intriguing.

Do you know there are some places in the Pacific that are already dealing with rising ocean waters. And the August/September winds were worse worse this year for us too. We're just rolling with what comes our way, G and I. I do just fine as long at it isn't hot and humid. ;) :roll: :)

Oh, I wish you could have seen the escarpment today. The air was so clear it looked like it was within walking distance...(Not of course...) Along the bottom is such beautiful lush farm land and then the rain forest crawls up it's ever steeping sides... truly is gorgeous. I should see if I can find some photos on google. :mrgreen: I have to drive us up that mountain on Tuesday. Doctor time again.

Well I am off to get G's supper. Something simple I think...

Love you,
sandy
P.S. You wouldn't believe what I did this morning. Now this serves as a reminder for all of us how important it is to stay in the moment...
Anyway, I went to brush my teeth and as I was brushing I noticed that the tooth paste tasted different...really different! I looked down and lo and behold I had picked up a tube of Deep Heating instead of toothpaste. :shock: (for those of you unfamiliar, Deep Heating is a cream that comes in a tube that you rub on a sore back) :roll: bleah! I'm not sure my toothbrush will ever be the same. May be time for a new one. :? :hithere

PP, sending warm thoughts and wishes your way! I would love to go rock hunting with you some day.

Sandy,
Imagining you and Eli doing art on skype 8000 miles apart makes me tear up a little bit. Using a coping skill to overcome a fear and teach others in the process, is pure genius! Don't think you would need any seminar, but the idea sounds like extreme fun! As a grandma, teacher and mom I ask myself, "How do you want to be remembered?"

As for the Spicy Sopa, "You do not want to make it with the weather you've ben having!" I'm melting just thinking abut it, ugh. Wait, I have to step outside for a minute, two foot of snow,... okay that's better. Spicy Sopa in our house started out as something I made with the left over liquid from canning salsa. Thinking of my grandma inspired the soup we end up with now days. At the end of the week she would empty all the leftovers in the frig and dump them in a pot of water, along with a handful of barley and that was her Barley Soup! We had a Mexican meal for Christmas dinner. Into the pot went nacho dip, Spanish rice, refried beans(might have been a little spinach dip also), chicken cooked in enchilada sauce and Aleah's fresh salsa(SPICY!!!). There was also leftover spaghetti sauce, a slew of fresh vegies(carrots, cabbage, red pepper, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, gr beans, tomatoes), maybe more. Also added two chicken breasts, a can each of kidney beans and pinto beans, lg. onion, three lg. wedges of garlic, three or four tablespoons of lemon basil, teaspoon or so of chili powder, three tablespoons of vegetable soup base. Cubed and cooked the chicken in coconut oil and garlic pepper, chopped up and steamed vegies, peeled and chopped onion and garlic. Combine all ingredients, added enough water to make it the consistency of our preference, nacho dip and refried beans will thicken it. Cooked on a slow simmer for about an hour.

Last night was family dinner night again, I must say I make a mean lasagna! We have to have family dinner nights you know, I've yet to learn how to cook in small quantities.


Yikes! Deep Heating cream does not sound delicious!!! Bet it woke you up though! Reminds me of the time my dad brushed his teeth with Preperation H. I'm sorry, that was hilarious!....... for days.

Hope the Dr. appointments went well, would love to glimpse a pic of the escarpment. Will also send another wish for cool weather. Take care you all down under. :hithere

Love,
Kim

Hello you guys!

Kim, I am in awe of your spicy sopa. WOW! LOL You know on a much smaller scale considering it is just the two of us, I've done something similar. So spicy sopha can be anything and everything you want it to be. What an excellent idea to use left overs and limit food waste. I am going to clean out the old fridge and get rid of a bunch of stuff later today. George has been sick and to be honest we aren't sure if it is an independent bug or something not quite right that he's eaten. Thankfully he is well on his way to health again but I do not want any set backs. This month is going to be a busy one with 5 doc/tests visits for G and a few needed stuff for me. I could use some prayers for my right thumb. Trigger finger is relentless now and the doc wants me to have surgery. The surgery is minor don't get me wrong but if I can avoid it. I am extremely grateful that" ole leftie" (left thumb) is feeling better. I hope you too are seeing some amazing good results in your health. We have been thinking of you and hoping all is well.

Let me know if you ever teach a grandma seminar! I'll be the first to sign up! :lol: The cool thing about all this wonderful fun loving hands on experience you are giving Tiny...She will grow up with many of the underlying ideals. Love produces love. I think it has been easier for me to let my hair down with my grandsons. People already think I am a flavor of nutty anyway so I have nothing to loose. ;)

Here are some photos of the escarpment. https://www.google.com.au/search?q=phot ... 3&bih=1082

Well better finish up and take care of the bunnies. I have them out running around in a protected enclosure but they still can find ways to get in trouble.
love,
Sandy

P.S. I love this!!!

Sandy,
I've always wanted to visit Australia, you and George in particular, but after viewing the pics from the escarpment, man the incentive is stronger than ever! So massive, beautiful and awe inspiring!!! Gum and eucalyptus forests, waterfalls, coastline, caves, sea cliff bridge, Gymea lily and other gorgeous flowers, panther! Might take some convincing, but I would even like to experience the VERY HIGH lookout tower and walkway!.... I think. Thanks for posting the photos, a visual feast.

Yikes! We are having a thaw after the extended deep freeze, a foot of snow just slid of our metal roof! Sounded like a freight train... I'm awake now!

Hope the doctor visits and tests all are good news. Me too, wading through it. Since things have been, ...breaking down, I've been really focusing on taking better care of myself and EFT tapping with a litany of positive affirmations taken from Louise Hay's book, Heal Your Body. So interesting how 'on target' the reasons she lists for causing the individual symptoms are, scary really.

That's why I'm a preschool teacher! People think my behavior is tailored to their needs, when really it's just me able to be me without raising any eyebrows, or being captured by the guys in the white suits! For some reason I envision them always carry a large minnow net. Yesterday Dave delivered a huge mountain of snow to our playground. He's a hero in the kids eyes.

Did I ever tell you we had a huge white male bunny(size of a big cat) that would not be incarcerated! Finally we just let him roam free. He made a home under a twenty foot high wood pile. We'd visit almost daily bringing food and petting him. We could hold the crazy guy, but he had a second sense about being carried off to the pen, immediately jumping out of our arms and scurrying away. He lived for years under that pile, one of our friends took him once to breed with his rabbits.

Around the time my mom passed away I was walking through the house and I heard those words as loud and as plain as day, stopped me in my tracks! Immediately I wrote them down in twelve inch size letters. Those words have gotten me through some very tough times.

PP, so happy you are having such a great time! Would love to have an outdoor count down to the new year, maybe someday! Lol! I can tell you really miss the northern winters...not.

You know how much I adore Sedona! Really want to go back, it is breathtaking! Every day Dave and I would go out from dawn to dark trying to take it all in. Good thing he was driving though! The energy from those vortexes, and so many other sites, was discombobulating to my balance and psyche! Again, "I loved it!" Be sure to share more of your traveling exploits and warm weather. Me, I'm just enjoying the Christmas lights aligning our walkway, on this pitch black morning. There's something magical about their friendly glow on... several feet of snow. I'm wanting to keep them up as long as possible even though Clementines says, "You know Grandma Christmas is over. You should take your lights down." Soon enough she will learn I'm not all that crazy about convention!

Love to all,
Kim

Good day you guys!

I enjoyed your exploits PP, it is nice thinking about you driving around, listening to your impressions of what you see. Now I wish I couls see Sedona.... (again LOL) I went through this when Kim and dave went there a few years ago. Hmmm when you have a chance maybe we can see some of your favorite photos/places there. Until then maybe I can cheat and get it off the internet. :mrgreen:

I must look up Yuma too. You know how I like to have a feel for your travels pp.

Kimmie,
I broke down and took the Christmas tree down yesterday. Now our insides are dull and blank again. (house anyway) I will probably put up a smaller version again in July. (Christmas in July ya know is much easier to enjoy when it is cool outside)

It really does fees good to let the child in me out of some of the confines the conventional world thinks is proper. Bleah! Time to buck traditions not of my making and be me in all my childish glory. LOL Okay hopefully I will keep a little of my adult wisdom but maybe tempered with imagination, curiosity, sheer joy and the workings of life around me. ( and unafraid to revel in that joy :bana: )

Well, our Doctor visit ended with George at the emergency room. But he is okay now and on the mend. He could still use a few prayers and some healing. We are trying extra hard to create new habits and ways of being that help our poor ole physical bodies. I'm afraid we both have a tendency to forget that side of spirituality...or maybe we pretend to forget...sigh. But all is well here... no worries.

Better go... Love you guys,
Sandy
