Why does life have to be so difficult sometimes? I want stability. Is that a bad thing? I am a one man woman. I feel like the ones who approach me are full of lies. They want a hookup not a partner. I am tired of the games. I am tired of the intermittent phone calls. I am not there to fill your quick gap. I’m done. Stability is what I want. Not a full commitment but just reassurance that you will always be there.
BUT THE BEST. First and foremost, never doubt yourself in any situation. Don’t ever let anyone make you feel you are incapable, lesser, or anything less then the best. You are the best.
If they want to challenge you, take it on. Challenge them back. Stand up for your beliefs and have confidence in yourself.
I’d say if you are reading this post, you already have reservations about any thoughts you might be having or even a decision and conviction you are hesitant about standing up for. Don’t change your mind. Stand your ground.
Believe and take pride in yourself. Only you have the power to stand up for you. Be your own advocate.
You are amazing, worthy, capable, and the best there is. Don’t stop now. Keep going and follow through on your dreams and goals. I know you can do it and so do you.
Large Crowd Summer Menu Cookout
Happy belated 4th of July!
Sometimes it’s hard to put together a menu suitable for a large crowd. You’ll have your gluten free guest, your guest sensitive to spices, another guest who cannot tolerate garlic, and your no onions please guest. Oh and your no beef guest.
So whenever my sister and I put together our menu for the next family function, we have to take all these request into consideration. And, we love it. It gives us an opportunity to get a gathering together fast and be creative.
Remember, more isn’t always necessary because people tend to have a few cocktails beforehand and also nosh on the chips and whatever else precedes the main course.
Here is our typical summer bbq menu:
We usually start with a platter of olives and pickles, chips, celery and ranch dressing. On occasion there will be buffalo chicken wing dip, cheese and crackers, etc.,
Next, here comes the burgers, hot dogs, sausage patties, sausage and peppers, and bbq chicken. Then we have the pasta salad, corn on the cob, and deviled eggs! Yum. I’m getting hungry just writing about it.
Lol well anyway this is just a gist of some menu items you can put together pretty quick for a large crowd.
Here are some pics of our family. I hope you all had a safe and happy 4th.
It was a great 4th of July. We even camped out back in the Yert. The boys slept in their hammocks. I’ll have to try that one night. They said it was wicked comfortable.
Oh geez I almost forgot the most important part of the menu lol, the adult beverage we fell in love with. Saranac’s Moscow Mule ginger beer. If you can get your hands on one, try it. They are so good ice cold. It’s really a great summer drink.
My front porch
This is minimalism at its best. All this took took was a fresh coat of paint and a garage sale find for $80 bucks.
Sitting on a porch is the best therapy a person can get.
Life can be simple if you truly want it to be. Less is definitely more.
