Good 45ยบ major cloudy morning.

45 days left until the end of the year. Ya think it could go any faster!!!

Today is Brian and Jen's 9th Wedding Anniversary! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS!!! Beautiful and fun wedding .. and what a fantastic family you have now! Love you all! ♥♥♥♥

Yesterday I tried to post Annalee's site but they have changed it. The new address is
Take a look. I want some of these rooms!!! Her son Ryan has his own landscaping business at
.... some gorgeous pictures.

I missed my friend Trish's new daughter-in-law's birthday yesterday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BECKY!!!
Becky is a multi-talented gal, knits/crochets hats that are ADORABLE! She is the one who made my red/white/blue scarf that Trish gave me for Christmas. She also decorates shoes and makes tote bags.... If you are on FB take a look...

If you are interested in any of these items... get in touch with me and I will put you in touch with Becky...

I ordered and got the frog hat for me!

Today is also the birthday of a couple of retired LASD friends.... Mike Nelson and Pete Moreno. It's also the birthday of my pal Sandy's son Patrick Kraut... a Sgt. for HPPD. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GUYS!!!

Yesterday we finally got a few moments of sun. A Vitamin D Happening!!!!

The turkeys thought yesterday was "I'm So Pretty Day".... Look at me girls.....

And my new washer arrived... totally different from the last one. Electronic! Strange noises. Did a good job though! First one lasted 20+ years (gave it to one of Brian's teachers when we moved), second one lasted 15 years, and this one will probably last 10!!!

Bruiser (or as Jeannie calls him, "The Bruise"!) is still at the vets, no surgery yet, some improvement, temp down a bit, licked food off the doc's finger, pee'd. Doc called me about 7pm last night. He will have more tests today for tick something-or-other. He came out negative for feline problems. Keep your fingers crossed! I want that little guy better!

Leave it to Harry Reid and the Dems who don't want information exposed as to the inept help that occurred in Benghazi!!!

That "Mexican" stir fry I made Monday night put me on the trail of more with those flavors. Found this on Beth's site,  Next pasta dinner will be
"Beth's Chicken Enchilada Pasta" ......

2 T vegetable oil, 1 medium yellow onion, 2 cloves garlic, 1# chicken breast*, 1 cup enchilada sauce, 1/2 cup sour cream, 12 oz pasta, 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, 2-3 green onions.

STEP 1: Dice the onion and mince the garlic. Cook both in a large skillet over medium heat with vegetable oil until soft and transparent (about five minutes). Meanwhile, slice the chicken into thin strips. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook until no longer pink (5-7 minutes).
*I would cook the skinless boneless chicken thighs in the crockpot with enchilada sauce, low 8 hours, red or green.
STEP 2: Warm up canned enchilada sauce. Whisk in the sour cream. Set aside. Shred the Monterey Jack cheese (if not shredded already) and slice the green onions.
I would use red or green La Victoria enchilada sauce.
STEP 3: Cook the pasta according to the package directions and then drain well in a colander. Combine the pasta, sauce, and chicken mixture either in the skillet (if it's big enough) or in the pasta cooking pot. Taste to see if you want more salt or other seasonings. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and sliced green onions. Serve warm.
Now, does that look/sound good or what!
