June 27, 2015 - Photo A Day Challenge: A Pet

Well since we have 2 pets it didn't seem right to make one of them feel bad.

Ernie and Jaime: (L wouldn't let me name Jaime "Bert")

June 26, 2015 - Photo A Day Challenge: Oops

Turns out I had an actual oops moment yesterday.  I was helping my mother wipe dirt off the leaves of a plant,  (0k yes, I know that seems like a weird statement but I was) when I accidentally pulled several leaves off one of the branches and I literally said "oops"

It was much funnier that it might have otherwise been just because of this particular assignment

June 20. 2015 - Photo A Day Challenge: Sugary

Well since I did not run into any cotton candy vendors today this will have to do for today's theme:

Fudge Filled Peanut Butter Bars:




Considering I made them, it's an extremely easy recipe:

Ingredients:
1 Yellow cake mix
1C peanut Butter
1/3C Margarine or Butter melted
2 eggs

Combine the above by hand in large bowl.  After it's mixed take 2/3 or the mixture and press it into a 9x13" pan

Filling
1C chocolate chips
1 can condensed milk
2T Margarine or Butter

cook the filling in a sauce pan until chocolate is melted and the ingredients are combined, let cool a minute then pour over the 2/3 cake mix.

Crumble the remaining 1/3 mix and spread over the filling. (Mom taught me to take pieces of the mix andflatten in my hands and place over the filling letting some of the filling show through)

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 - 25 mins

I have no idea where it originated but my Mom gave it to me.  Oh and btw, you can freeze these they are almost more fun to eat frozen, but that could just be me.

June 17, 2015 - Photo A Day Challenge: Silly



I have no idea what ET has to do with buckling up, nor do I know who in the town government thought this was a good idea.  I do wonder if they have to pay royalties for use of the image.  I probably just made our taxes go up.

June 11, 2015 - Photo A Day Challenge: Favorite Color

Ok fine, I actually have two favorite colors.  I like them both equally and for different reasons.  Oh and I have always wanted a bright happy face yellow car, but have yet to get one.

June 8, 2015 - Photo A Day Challenge: Celebrate

Well I had to revert to some old photos for today's challenge:

This one is from the Zurich Street Parade in 2011:



And these are from the Burning of the Boogg in 2010.  If I remember correctly this is a celebration of the ending of winter and the onset of spring.  I believe, but could be wrong, that the speed at which the snowman burns determines how quickly spring will come.  BTW, the snowman is packed with explosives (2nd picture).  I like this better than waiting for the groundhog to see his shadow.

June 2, 2015 - Photo A Day Challenge: Centered

This is my friend SAM (Sister Ann Mathew) of the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth.  I realized today that there are at least two people who I tend to think of as being at ease with the world around them despite all the crap that goes on and everything that gets thrown at them.  I suspect it is in part their spiritual beliefs that help them with that.  For me they are are the epitome of centered: "Emotionally Healthy and Calm."

Although I may be emotionally healthy, I doubt any one would ever describe me as calm.  So here you have it, SAM - Centered
