Fried Eggplant!

I know...I know, It's fattening, but who cares.
I LOVE fried eggplant!
This was so good, I ate the whole thing!
Does anyone have a baked eggplant recipe?

Easter 2009

Easter Pictures

Easter turned out to be a BEAUTIFUL day! The weather was to be thunderstorms all day with lots of rain. We had the Easter egg hunt inside for my Granddaughter, after we finished the sun came we did it again! Here's the pics! She had fun!

Happy Friday!

Busy, Busy, Busy, Friday! I only have a quick second,

so I thought I would show you my view of the sunsets

here on my ten acres. I'm a city girl who moved to the

country. I am loving it! There is only one draw back. I

cannot get online and order pizza on Friday nights as they

do not deliver in the country. But, I will take my view!

I have to say I have a million dollar view where I'm located.

At night we can see the down town lights of San Antonio.

It is just breath taking. Here is a view of our sunsets.

Blog Candy

I just love this purse! I love vintage purses and jewelry.

I took this from outside a window In Alaska, when we

went on a cruise. We had just finished an excursion

and was running to get back to the ship on time. I

just had to stop and take a picture of this beautiful

purse. I still wish I had ran in real fast and bought it.

Oh well! Maybe I can make one myself. It's been awhile

since I've made purses, but man oh man...

Kids say the funniest things!

Last night, I was laying in bed trying to go to sleep. I started thinking, what could I put
on my blog today? As if, anyone reads it (smile). One day someone will find my blog,
I just know it! Any who, back to the topic. I started thinking about my boys, who by the way,
are all grown up now (so to speak). I thought about the funny things they use to say when they were little. I have three boys, very active boys at that! They were all over the place! My
middle one, Ryan, couldn't sit still for all the money in the world. I would always say,
"calm down guys, your making me nervous and giving me a headache" I would say
that quite often. One day my youngest one, Mikey, came to me holding his head and
said "Mom, I have a nerbous". That is how he said headache, LOL, I just knew he
got that from me! Yes, he said nerbous because he was about three years old.
What's the funniest thing one of your children have said to you? I will add more
later, as I have to do that yucky word "work".

Cupcakes...Who doesn't love cupcakes? I LOVE cupcakes! I love mine to have icing so tall you have no idea how your going to take that first bite. I like to see how many sprinkles and other items I can pile on top. The more eye candy the better for me and my kids. The best part about a cupcake like that, is when you take a bite, you have icing all over your nose. Cupcakes are more than food to me, they are a way to express your self and have some fun. When was the last time you had a cupcake?

A guided Purpose

A Guided Purpose by Fion Lim

Fluttering mind, fluttering mind,
Calm yourself down and have a rest.

Slow down the busyness of your mind,
And cool off your many distractions.

There's the calming effect of a fixed purpose,
Which slay all doubts, worries and fears.

Once you found a goal to commit to,
Your powerful mind set to work in a tenacious way.

No hesitancy, no pull back, no excuses,
Removing all obstacles that stand in the way.

Upon reaching the far-fetched goal,
You wonder at the marvel of it all.

A great power seems to be at work,
Guiding you along the line of fulfilling your aim.

The power of a committed purpose,
All lie within your powerful mind.
