Low-Carb Taco Casserole

I got this recipe from my friend Linda’s blog- we are in dire need of shaping up for the spring and this seems like a good place to start.
Enjoy!

While most households were gobbling up lots of carb-laden snacks and appetizers this past Sunday, we watched the Super Bowl while munching on this delightful Low-Carb Taco Casserole.  I used t…

Making up for lost time

My girls know Mom is working.


Zush, who is ALWAYS by my side, has been giving me the”…and you’re not going anywhere, right, mom?” look and sticking to me even more than Velcro ever could.

It is weird that once again, I have to reschedule my week. At least with this job I manage to get weekends off,for what that’s worth.After all, laundry and vacumning have got to get sone sometime. But somethings are always the same. I savor the time with my fur girls!  Kasia misses me a little, but as usual, she always waits for Jim to come home.Oh well, one out of two isn’t bad,

Juice of a few Flowers

  
It is a new end for my week-my work week.

I started my new career this week. I am a class aide for autistic boys in kindergarten.It is quite a rewarding job, and although it’s been a while since I dealt  with young boys ,it brings back the memories.

  
It makes me sad the the difference in education is down to dollars. Teachers and aides going to buy things for the classroom with what little money they have.

Anyhow, it’s a new day for me: I can only hope it turns out well for everyone!

Tornado Watch

It hasn’t been that nice a day today weather wise.

Then when I came in and heard that there was a tornado warning for my neck of the woods, I thought “uh-oh” 

 
I could only get the girls ready for the thunder. I have a herbal pill I give them and it helps zone them so they can tolerate the weather. It works pretty good and we’ll probably all have an early night.

Stay safe folks!

Gotcha Day

  
It was fourteen years ago that Zush came into out lives.

I didn’t get to spend the day with the girl as I would have liked to.Granted, the day started with a good walk for the three of us.Unfortunately, Jim and I had to go to Philadelphia for a funeral, but no worries. My friend and “sister” Georgine stopped in a few times to keep the gals company.

  
  
Here she is with Zush. I am so lucky that she loves them and they her.

We got home around 4:30,and in Zush’s honor, we walked to the beach and back.We were blessed with each other’s company,and as we walked along the beach, we were blessed with this.

   
 
A pretty good ending to Zush’s gotcha day!

Escape from Oz

We have to leave our little Shangri-la for a trip back to the big city tomorrow morning. It is going to be traumatic for me because I am leaving my girls at home.

Our old neighbor passed away on the 17th and we are going up for his funeral.Jim was a close buddy with his son who lived with him. If I had my way, I would have just gone up for the viewing and funeral, and then come back. Mike, Jim’s friend,and Jim both said that if we are going all the way up there, we might as well stay for the luncheon.Oh well. It’ll be good to have Jim socialize and be happy.

My “sister” down here, who lives, down the street,is going to come in to let the girls out a few times through the day and give them their medicine at 3:30. I can’t be leaving them in better hands, but still, I will be missing my kids.

Pancake Breakfast

The Property Owners’s Association runs a pancake breakfast on the third Saturday of the month. 

 
That’s a shot of the guys in the kitchen making up pancakes and sausage.Jim is off on the right, doing the batter.We work the front,We take and deliver the orders ,deliver drinks and just help out.

It’s a nice way to participate in the community, and we have to do this next in May. I’m glad.,,,I have to rest up.
