Thanksgiving was wonderful this year and Fred and I both have a lot to be thankful for. Pictures from both celebrations are now on Flickr. I hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving!

New TV er... Color Box

IMG_1669-2, originally uploaded by Racergirl1313.

We bought a new TV and it was delivered on Friday. It worked great for a while and we were super happy with our purchase. Unftunately, we turned it off to go make dinner and when we turned it back on after dinner it looked like this.... Hopefully Amazon will replace it quickly. It was a great TV the 6 hrs. or so it was woking.... :(

Sorry it has been a while since my last post. It has been busy, but fear not! The posting will pickup I am sure as Christmas approaches.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Blog and Contest for Beauty Junkies

I am a huge beauty junkie so I thought I'd share this with my fellow BJA (Beauty Junkies Anonymous) members. This is a great blog and right now she is running a great contest. Check it out!

Busy Day

Deck, originally uploaded by Racergirl1313.

As you can see, we now have stairs on the deck! We're almost there. Fred spent most of the weekend working on the deck, Dad came down to help yesterday and Bob came down to help today.

I spent the day today making raspberry stuffed french toast, chocolate chip cookies and taking down about 8 feet for grapevines off the fence near the driveway. Pictures can be found on my Flickr site.

Hope everyone else took advantage of the extra hour today like we did! Have a great week!

Dinner and Crafts

Above we have the makings of a great dinner. Throw one whole fryer chicken, , one bottle Sam Adams Black Lager and Penzy's Lemon Pepper seasoning into the crockpot and cook until the mean falls off the bone. Along with the chichen slice some potatoes, toss with light olive oil and Penzy's Garden Salad Seasoning and put in a 350 degree oven until crispy on both sides. The chicken could have probably used some gavy made from the beer, but I've never been a gravy person so it didn't even cross my mind.

In addition to creating some yummy food I also worked on a few projects I have had planned for around the house. Take a look.

Tomorrow I'll have pictures of the deck and the raspberry cream cheese stuffed french toast I am making for breakfast!

Run!, originally uploaded by Racergirl1313.

I just wanted to make sure to mark the 4th Anniversary of my quitting smoking. On Halloween 2003 I smoked my last cigarette. Since then, the only time I've smoked has been in my dreams.

In the past 4 years I have noticed a distinct improvement in my health, especially as far as colds and sinus problems go. If you haven't quit smoking you should. It is the healthiest thing you can do for yourself if you are a smoker. There is a program out there for everyone. If you need an ear, let me know, I’d be more than happy to share my experience.
