Laid Up

It has been a while since I blogged. I thought I needed to at least put a few words down as to why.

I hadn't been feeling too good health-wise. First it was this, then that, then the ?flu and then my bad back got wrenched and I couldn't sit at my computer or anywhere else for any amount of time. Still can't.

Anyway, hopefully I'm on my way to feeling better and will be able to get to working on all the piled up posts.

I might even predate the post back to when the events actually took place.

Anyhow, I hope to get this and the other blog updated pretty soon.

I know we're in the South, but I didn't expect to see THIS at Walmart.

Curse you, Buzz Feed

You made me feel compelled to make cute little hard boiled egg animals for the little boy's breakfasts  :)

I'm Guessing This Will Be..

the closest to a Chinese New Year environment as I'll be getting, what with living in Abilene and all.

The folks at Sunrise are very warm and friendly, and we have known them for a number of years. A bunch of years ago, when the building was still Ecko's, we had contemplated having our rehearsal dinner here. I had only eaten here a couple of times when it was under the old management.

Ever since Ray and his family took over, we have dined here on a regular basis. They have a separate "Chinese" menu, especially for Chinese students who attend the local universities, and whenever I am feeling particularly homesick, I would order from That menu. I have to be honest and say that I would sooo much rather have South East Asian food, and wish that George's Asian/Cambodian was still open, but I still love what they offer at Sunrise.

Plus, just check out the decor. :) Simple but Fabulous.

Yup, it's the Weather Again

Sounds cliche and like a broken record, but really, if you don't like the weather ( especially this winter ), just wait a few days and you'll get something totally different.

A few days ago, it was freezing, and then we had lovely warm ( albeit horrific for our planet ) days, and yesterday morning, we have Cold Dense Fog.

We had thought that by the time Church was over, that the fog would have somewhat gotten less dense/burned off, but No. It seemed to be thicker than before!
