Couldn't Make Up My Mind

OK, so I couldn't make up my mind which one to cook...chili or I made them both! Took a little longer in the kitchen than I wanted, but they both turned out pretty tasty, if I may say so myself! Even got pictures to prove it. We've got this rule. Someone does the cooking, someone else does the clean-up...I couldn't do it to 'em. What a mess I always make when I cook. So, I cleaned up like a good girl.

I even got to have a visitor today! Gweny, the next door neighbor, dropped in. Yes folks, I actually have a witness. It was ME doing the cooking! On a more somber note, Gwen was telling me about the loss of her 22 year old nephew to the Dragon...cancer. So full of life, so short a time to live it. He was a beautiful child who will always be loved and remembered. These Angels bring so much love with them from Heaven...and the best part of it is, that they leave that love with us when they go home. We're never alone. Not for an instant...So here's my sending out lots of love and hugs and prayers to the family. Bless their hearts...

So, on that note, I'll leave you with a bit of useless information:

The term maverick came from Texas rancher Sam Maverick, who refused to brand his calves.

We woke up to those terrible fires out in California this morning! Heard a police helicopter was flying over an area and saw this idiot, riding his motorcycle, stopping to light fires! The police quickly surrounded him and took him away...What a sick person. All those different fire locations couldn't have been accidents. Over 500,000 people evacuated! What next...

"Bella" and "Sally" have seemed to gone missing! Wonderful bloggers. Miss hearing from you. Hope all is well!

The winds are still blowing like crazy here. It's still cooler than it was, which makes it nice for getting my cooking done. I'll make up the chili and gumbo tonight and that should carry us for the rest of the week, barring any other delays.
Well guess I'll close for now. Y'all have a safe evening and a better tomorrow.
