Your thoughts are more powerful than you think


Everything I ever wanted in life (within normal limits) lol I put my thoughts towards it and I feel as though maybe I didn’t get everything I wanted, I got what I needed in my life.

With that being said, it turns out it is exactly what I wanted, I just didn’t realize it.

If you think negatively, well then that is just what you are going to get. It’s not as easy as it sounds though.

You have to also put out a positive vibe in order to receive a positive life back.

Eh judging people, wishing bad thoughts on people, taking the non-humble route, aint gonna cut it lol.

You have to really reach down deep and put your heart and mind to positive thoughts. Wish the best for everyone even if they have done you wrong. Everything happens the way it is suppose to.

Don’t cry for what it could have been, smile for the best that is yet to come. ~ jg

There’s No Reason to Be Alone ♥️🐶🐱♥️


I heard today, and this is just a thought I’m putting out there, that animal shelters are letting you foster dogs and cats. Since many people are laid off from work this would be ideal for their situation, especially if they live alone. I am not sure which shelters are offering this. The issue the shelters are having is that they are cutting down on employees which means the dogs and cats will be getting less interaction. ♥️🐶🐱🐶🐱♥️ #fosterapooch

The pup shown below is my boy ♥️ He isn’t up for fosterbf or adoption. Sorry!!

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.
