Gingerbread crazy

I was watching the Food Network today after recording the gingerbread competition. What absolutely beautiful crafter gingerbread creations. It makes me itching to get baking some gingerbread to make a house or something!

new cookbook

😏Of course, I bought a new cookbook. It came recommended and I fell for it! So, I'm hoping it will be fun to get out of my rut! Been in a rut for 2 years, just not feeling the love for cooking and I think its because it's just us! I'm a little more creative if we have company or the kids come for supper, but otherwise, it's just the same old same old! :) So here's to more adventures in cooking!

Happy Saturday!

Today was my day of rest though I did a little vacuuming, laundry and got our granddaughters cards at the store! But all in all it was a rest day as we will be gone tomorrow for the twins birthday party! These girls went today with some of their friends to Feed the Starving children site in Minneapolis to make meals. What thoughtful girls! There was 9 of them. I'm very proud of them!
I think they are 5 years old in this photo
Here they are 15 years old!

Lady is home! I know it sounds so weird from me, but we really missed her. She has come back with 10 lbs on her and taller than when we dropped her off! She retrieves birds and isn't gun shy which is good for a bird dog!

With today being Monday, it's always a good time for new beginnings! Work has been stressful for 6 years. My feelings have gotten smashed more times than I can count on both hands by upper management and co workers. I don't go by feelings as feelings are fickle, but that is the only way I can describe what has taken place at work. I have been called to the office 2 times since I have been there in 17 years and it has been over trivial things, like sitting down is an office for 4 minutes because my knee hurt and for saying something that was truth, plus I didn't deny I said it. But I am slowly seeing that I am in control of my self and have to stand up to a couple of people. I don't plan to be mean about anything, but they need to stop controlling me like my mother, I had a great mother and they are not it! I'm saying all of this for my own benefit as I need to take the step to do it! Probably tell everyone off when I finally retire and won't look back!! :)) Well, that's all I wanted to say and to pray for the situation! Blessings!!

one more thing

This week I got an email from a friend that I have known for 3 years. She and her husband are really great people, but she was telling me and others about their 15 year marriage and what they had learned. I cracked up, I have been married 46 years and still finding out things about Gordon I never knew before, 1. either I wasn't paying attention or 2. he never told me. More likely the latter.
We don't fight, we may disagree, but never fight. We have before, but he just walks away and nothing is resolved. So we try to calmly figure things out. We have gone to bed not speaking to each other, but its a rare occasion. I have slept on the couch because I was mad, but that never solves anything either. When the kids were little or teens, we stood united, we may disagree privately, but we stood united in front of them.
For instance, he wants mustard on his hot dog, really????? I didn't know this until 10 years ago, I thought everyone had ketchup on it, no not him! :)
Another one, he likes a clean house, but on my day off, I can do what I want, didn't know that until 3 years ago. It's my day off from work, so in his mind that means cleaning the house too. I do clean the house, but not always on my day off.
WE love traveling together, but I do enjoy being alone from time to time, so when he goes hunting out west, I'm ok.
His love language is touch and gestures of love. Mine is words. He loves his head rubbed and still holds my hand. I love it when he calls me or now he's learned to text, go figure!
Well, that's all for now. Blessings!!
