A month and a half

It has been a month and a half now. Dad pasted away on September 30, suddnly. Robert was the one who found him. The strange part is, that morning as I was leaveing for work I had a feeling that I should go in and say bye to Dad. I didn't, because I didn't want to wake him up. He looked like he was sleeping so peacefully. Well he was. They guess that he had been gone for a few hours before he was found. I never want Robert to go though something like that again.
Then a month later we had to put Rio Dads' dog to sleep she just went down hill so fas, after Dad died. The whole month of October was just so strange. Nancy and Allen moved out and now the house is so still. Don't get me wrong, I love the peace, but it is a little weird after everything that was going on all summer.

A word to the wise

Still a blind eye have we.

Mistakes have been made,
Friendships have been lost.

But who is willing to accept fault?

Each one of us,
Have been at fault.

Can any of us look inside,
and say it was not me?

Will any of us stop and think?
What price has been paid?

Cold hands reach out for each,
Judgments’ scales wait for us ALL.

Can any of us truly say,
It did not start with me!

Where did it start?

In a twisted little mind
Or a complement taken wrong?


Think before you accuse,
Listen before you convict.
Who gave you the right to judge?

… ½ head of cabbage, chopped
1 cup celery, diced
1 cup white or yellow onion, diced
1 cup carrots, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups chicken broth
14 oz can basil, oregano, garlic diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
few shakes of black pepper
½ teaspoon salt (optional)
Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.
Add celery, onions, bell peppers, and carrots.
Saute until slightly tender.
Stir in garlic.
Pour in chicken broth.
Stir in tomatoes and cabbage.
Bring to a boil and then reduce heat.
Cook until cabbage is tender.
Stir in oregano, basil, red pepper flakes, black pepper and salt (if using)
Taste broth and adjust seasoning if needed.
So here is a brief overview of the 7 Day Cabbage Soup diet plan.
Remember: This diet should only be followed for 7 days at a time, with at least two weeks in between.
Day One: Fruit: Eat all of the fruit you want (except bananas). Eat only your soup and the fruit for the first day. For drinks- unsweetened teas, cranberry juice and water. (I had coffee, no cream or sugar).
Day Two: Vegetables: Eat until you are stuffed will all fresh, raw or cooked vegetables of your choice. Try to eat leafy green vegetables and stay away from dry beans, peas and corn. Eat all the vegetables you want along with your soup. At dinner, reward yourself with a big baked potato with butter. Do not eat fruit today.
Day Three: Mix Days One and Two: Eat all the soup, fruits and vegetables you want. No Baked Potato.
Day Four: Bananas and Skim Milk: Eat as many as eight bananas and drink as many glasses of skim milk as you would like on this day, along with your soup. This day is supposed to lessen your desire for sweets.
Day Five: Beef or Chicken And Tomatos: Ten to twenty ounces of beef and up to six fresh tomatoes. Drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water this day to wash the uric acid from your body. Eat your soup at least once this day. You may eat broiled or baked chicken instead of beef (but absolutely no skin-on chicken). If you prefer, you can substitute broiled fish for beef on one of the beef days (but not both).
Day Six: Beef and Vegetables: Eat to your heart’s content beef or skinless chicken and vegetables this day. You can have 2 or 3 steaks if you like, with leafy green vegetables. No Baked Potato. Eat your soup at least once.
Day Seven: Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and vegetables: Again stuff, stuff, stuff yourself. Be sure to eat your soup at least once this day.
Stick With The Cabbage Soup Diet For 7 Days…And Look Amazing Later, Too!
Be sure to eat your soup at least once to day.
No bread, alcohol, or carbonated beverages, not even diet soda.

Just an update on my world.

Well it looks like this summer is going to be a very long one. Words said a couple weeks ago, meant as a complement, where taken wrong. So now I really don't have a lot to do this summer. So we went and got our fishing licenses, and the trailer is packed and we are going to go hit as many ponds and streams as we can this summer. Oh by the way I have to thank Nancy for letting me know about the fencing that Brenda was using. It was just what we needed, now I just have to find a bunch of lite weight poles and zip ties. Then we won't have to worry about the boys getting lost or a coyote eating one or both of them.

We found out some thing about Skipper this last weekend. He is not a Beale. He is a Pembroke Welch Corgi. Who would have thought? Anyway he is totally ours now, and we have the license to prove it.
He is as sweet as he looks. But now I understand why he protects the yard and us the way he dose.

Well that is all for now. Later, after our first camping trip I'll let you all know how it went and where we went. Pitures to come later.

Have a fun week and upcoming holiday.

By the way. This will be the first camping trip for the boys.
I really think this is going to be interesting!
Don't you?

It has been awhile.

It has been awhile. We lost so much this past winter. Beethoven is gone now. He went in his sleep. But now he's ashes are besides Luicsa upstairs. The trial for the monster that killed Jeanette hasn't happened yet.

But I am hoping for a better summer this year.

Friday, September 7, 2012

Oh forgot to let you all know, not that anyone cares. But we got Luicsa's ashes back yesterday. They came in a very small box that is kind of sweet. Now they want to put a label on it and then I have no idea where they are going to put her then.

This is Bubba as you can see he is a clown.
Him and his buddy Skip came to live with us at the beginning of the summer. After thier owner past away, and his wife had to go to live in a care center.
Thanks to them, they have save us. Back in 2009 when we lost Wolfie,
she had lived with us for 10 years. There was not a place this girl did not go. She trusted us and never question anything that we did. Dad had gotten her for me after my Doberman Prince had been killed by a hit and run, call her husband, "I think I may have hit something," in front of all the school kids heading for school....Never mind I am getting off track. After her death Robert found Luicsa.
She was everything to him and never left his side. So he took it much harder then I did when she past last month. After everything we had been though with her, being allergic to bees then getting lost up at Thistle for three days. I still think she fell in the river and got washed away.
 To lose her to something like epilepsy, as fast as it took her. Was one of life's cruel jokes. With in 48 hours she became some thing that none of us knew. The Vet wouldn't even let any of us near her for fear of what she could do.
Now tell me, dose this look like a face of someone who would hurt us? Not to me, but it could have happened.; She didn't know who any of us where.

So now we have Bubba and Skip, and I thank god everyday that they are here. Some times I think they are all that holds me together.
