Old Man Winter is married to Mother Nature. They have a son named Jack Frost. I have always thought. This year I questioned if there is a daughter. Do you know?
I tried this new recipe for ham in a slow cooker. It said to put one and a half a cup of brown sugar in the bottom of the crockpot. Put the ham in face down and then covered ham with another one and a half a cup of brown sugar called on it, then cook for 6 hours on low. Well I did that and that ham was so sweet, I got a sugar rush, like convulsions. I will never cook a ham with brown sugar. I’ve always use Emeril’s recipe of Coca-Cola. It doesn’t have to be Coca-Cola, it can be generic Cola also.
So sweet meat doesn’t work for me I like a little sweet and some salty so you get the best of Both Worlds. Just messed up my whole Sunday dinner. 😦
Sometimes you need to walk away before things get bad. We were playing, I got hurt, but he kept on. I said stop, but no, he kept on playing like he always does. I got angry and he started to run. I flung our blanket off our bed which contained the remotes and phones. I broke them all. O’well! I said stop. He began again and I grab one of the fans and flung that, picked up and charged him with it. That was too far!!!
I went into my closet, which is a 12 by 12, mind you, and stood. Realizing that I went too far, but justified that I did say enough. Because he felt he was not done playing, I was. He knows what can happen when he pushes me to the end. 16 years of togetherness, you know the limits. so……..
I came back into the room after he called our daughter to sit with him after he done pissed me off, lol. I guess to protect him. but I don already cooled off, but he doesn’t know and sat on the bed. No conversation yet. I don’t care. I am with yall right now. I did sneeze 3 times in a row and he said bless me all 3 times and I said thank you 3 times.
This is the downslope of my anger and his realization that he pissed me off. I am on my computer and he knows it’s REAL. lol. I am working. Working on not fu*** him up and he knows it. He let me let go when I R really have to walk off.
No talking for an hour or so is good. He fixed my fan before I came back. He is such a boy. Boys play too much. It don’t matter how old they are. They still boys at heart.
I got more to add but still calming down. Sorry……
I love it when it snows. Living in a cold climate, you have to get used to that type of weather occurrence. Winter brings out niceness in Minnesota. People seem to be helpful. If someone is stuck in the snow, people don’t just keep driving by and let them figure it out on their own. Instead, they get out and help.
When it is snowing, it is really not all that cold outside. It makes making a snowman, snow angels, a snowball fight, or building a snow fort easy and fun. I love blizzards too. I like driving down the street and not being able to see but a car length in front of me. Snow really does not stop many people. Just because it is snowing, does not meant you can’t ride a bike or walk to your destination. The saying we us is “Only in Minnesota”.
Drinking hot chocolate or apple cider in the window and watching the snow fall. Coziness is what winter weather brings to me.
I don’t like when it rains first then snows. Ice is a dangerous element for winter time. It is really sneaky too. You have to be mindful that there is always a chance that is under the snow at stop signs, stop lights, or anytime you are stopping.
Now in the summer, you can see a person on the corner holding a sign for money, looking like they need water, food, or clothes. You will definitely see people drive right past them. I do give bottles of water to these people if I have it. I know some of these people are doing it for drugs, but some really don’t have anywhere to go. I give hand warmers in the winter and water in the summer.
I really wanted to just keep walking, when I knew that the lady was 20 feet behind me. I hate having to hold the door for someone who walks so slow, but I hate when I feel I have to rush when others are holding the door for me because I will walk as slow as I flippin want to. Anyways, I pushed the handicap door button for her for both doors and bout time the elevator came, she was inside. I asked her how she like that door service. lol. She said she wondered if I did that on purpose and she loved it. she said it made her day. She smiled so big and felt so good. Hopefully the kindness will spread and she will do something for the next and that person for the next. Happy Hump Day!
