I made soup!

but I wonder if it's any good.  My family tells me it smells good.  I've added all of the right ingredients, cooked for the right amount of time, but, unfortunately I'm recovering from a cold.  I have no sense of smell or taste *sigh*...but it sure looks good.  I hope I get my sense of smell and taste back for tomorrow.  We have ordered some of the best cajun food around for our lunch.

*this was chicken tortilla soup....(I would've had avocados, too, but they were rotten..:-(

Happy birthday!

My baby turned 15 yesterday.  Happy birthday dearest "C".  You are my constant reminder that God knows what I need more than I do. I love you more than words can say.

Oilers win!

Last night we attended the Texas High School football playoffs. My daughters highschool was playing in the 5A Division 1 finals. What an amazing game! It was hard fought and sooo close, but in the end our daughters team won! This made it a perfect season! Way to go!

Ugly Glasses and How you pay for Procrastinating

These are my glasses.  I have had them longer than I can remember.  You can tell from the style they are old.  I still use them because I only wear them first thing in the morning when I get up and last thing at night when I go to bed.  I wear contacts the rest of the time.  I am awesome with contacts.  No issues with seeing well, I can get them in and out of my eyes  easily and rely on them 99.99999 percent of the time to help me see clearly.  This is why I have not purchased new glasses in a while.

This time last year I found out that our vision insurance is AWESOME and that it would not cost much to get some cute new glasses.  But, this would take time....going to choose new frames, scratch resistant or not,  well...maybe next month...and then next month and here we are a year later.

I finally decided I was going to do it.  I was going to get new glasses.  It was time for my annual eye exam so I planned ahead, went early to peruse their selection at my leisure.  I found the cutest pair and am so excited to get them.

BUT, here comes the part where I pay for my procrastination.  During my eye exam I told my eye dr. about how my eye had been stinging the last couple of days and how I had gotten a piece of sawdust in my eye about one week before.  Well, it turns out I have small scratch on my cornea that is slightly infected.  SO...while I wait for my awesomely cute new glasses to be ready in the next 7-10  business days..I have to wear these....every day...all day...until my eye heals!

OH if only I had gotten my awesomely cute new glasses any time in the past year I would be looking stylish, cool, hip..but now I am left looking like a sad throwback from the 90s...hearing "what is she thinking?"  when I pass people at the mall and shops (because this time of year I can't hide in my house as I would have done any other time).

So, if you see me, or any sad person with old glasses on, wish them well and fast healing....and kindly don't stare.

Comfy puppy

Eventhough they aren't allowed this is what happens when the floors get cold.

A few prezzies under the tree. Slowly but surely it's getting done.

Crocheting tonight

this is a little throw I'm working on.

The name of the app is...

The iphone app is called Blog Writer. It was the only one I could find that worked with blogger.  Most worked with wordpress and others I've never heard of.   It has mixed reviews but if you're like me and just want to post pictures and thoughts to one blog it'll work.  They say the html doesn't work, the rss feed doesn't work..but I barely know how to make those work here so it isn't an issue.

It cost $1.99 so it was totally worth it.  There is a free app called blog writer lite but it won't do pictures.

here is a link:

When I first tried to download, I entered all my info and I got an error "http  error try again later".  I re-entered my password and tried again, and again.  About five times and 15 minutes later it worked.  I have no idea why but just keep trying.  So far it's worked for me.

View from my chair

First iPhone post with a picture. I am loving this!

** but I had to sign in to decrease the picture was HUGE!  Still, this will help me capture all of those fun things I see but don't have a camera handy.

Test flight

I just downloaded an app on my iPhone that is supposed to post on my blog for me. Let's see how this works. If it does it will be awesome! And much more fun!

Here goes.....
