The game? Eh...not much happened that is memorable.
However, it was the bench action that caught my attention.
Whenever a player came off the court and sat on the bench, these little mealy-bugs scampered to meet their every need. As a player's butt hit the seat, an orange-shirted assistant was right there with a nice, clean, dry towel and a big Gatorade bottle. From behind, the mealy bug would place the towel on the player's shoulder and then reach around with the bottle as an offering to the demi-god.
The term "blog" turned 10 years old this week. Check out the following website for information! I was listening to KGO last night, out of San Francisco, and they actually brought on the man who coined the term. On the show, they calculated that there are now 10,000 new blogsites set up each day. Wow...just think...if only I could have a dime for every new site...
Here it is. Hope you give it a try someday!
6 large boneless/skinless chicken breasts
3 tablespoons of EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil)
4 crushed cloves of fresh garlic
2 tsps. dried Italian herbs
2 Tblsp. flour
32 fl. oz Pacific Natural Food Organic free range Chicken Broth
2 large chopped carrots
1 medium diced onion
2 diced russet potatoes
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen corn
2 cups hot water (I use boiling water)
1 can Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup
Double-recipe of Bisquick's Savory Dill Dumplings
Cut the raw chicken breasts into 1 in. cubes. Place in heated large soup pot along with the olive oil. Simmer on med. heat for 15 minutes, adding in salt, pepper, garlic, and herbs. Sprinkle flour over the top of all, stirring around for 1 minute to be sure all chicken is coated. Pour in chicken broth. Add in carrots, onion, and potatoes. Allow to simmer another 15 minutes, until carrots are nice and soft. Add peas and corn. Add hot water. Cover and simmer for another 15 minutes.
Make dumplings and drop by large spoonfuls carefully on top of simmering chicken/veggie mixture. Cover with lid and do not open for 15 minutes.! Tah-dah!
Both of my kids have joined the X-C Ski Team at CHS. It's so much fun! I'm one of the drivers and today we headed out to the mountains at 6:30 a.m. We loaded up the old van with 7 kids and off we went!
It's weird. She has only played it a few times. Sort of rebelled against me after I made the huge financial sacrifice on her behalf. Weird time in our home. Her freshman year...would NEVER want to relive those times....
So, now she's preparing to leave for college. I HATE the thought of it and just know I'll have to deal with some significant depression. The drums, however, aren't being played and really do deserve a good home. Plus, I could definitely use the money (oh, BTW...if M.S. is reading this, after I sell it, I plan to go to the bank and ask for all 1's...then, I'm going to have my handsome husband build me a mirrored shelf to put all of the money on!)
I found this cool website that caught my eye. I've read. Now I know. Yes, if you have ANY fashion issues you'd like advice on, just give me a jingle. However, as parents say to their children, "Do as I say, not as I do."
Here are examples of some sleeves styles. I'm having a little contest. If you can name these 4 sleeves, I'll give you a prize.
White is #1
Pink is #2
Yellow is #3
Dark grey is #4
Light grey is #5
The dogs are sleeping all around the house.
My son is out with his buddies all night.
And my daughter is making her fantastic falafel!
She's got everything going...whole wheat pita, fresh Nancy's fat-free yogurt, fresh cucumber, fresh garlic, and, of course, wonderful falafel patties sizzling away in the pan!
Hmmm...I know I used to have more exciting Saturday nights.
Oh, well, we'll head over to Carnivorous Hippy's house for Scrabble...
Life is good.
However, his buddy, Aaron, came over to have dinner with us. This is pretty typical and we love this kid a lot. He and my son walked down the street to his house to, um, "Go get something." They came back with this.
See, I made Progresso Clam Chowder and Progresso Italian-Style Wedding Soup (our favorite!). Aaron didn't want to eat either of those. He wanted tomato.
When he handed me the can, he said, "Sorry about the cheap soup. My mom buys ghetto soup."

I burned all of the grass that has been taking over our large, gravel parking area and I also took out the green invaders along the perimeter of one garden fence. I walked away from the area for about 15 minutes and when I came back, the bottom of the fence and the compost nearby was on fire! What a hoot! I grabbed the hose and put out the flames! It was so exciting! Hey, at least there were no harmful chemicals involved!
