My BLog


Finally...Tammy blogs again...pure happiness...

Posted on July 4, 2014 at 9:40 PM
Oh my goodness. It has been months since I have written anything at all. How is it that someone can be that busy.

I still am doing all the things I usually do; working a couple of days a week, taking care of my mom, cooking, cleaning, making bread each week.

In late winter, I had stopped making bread, as my mom had burned her feet and I was spending so much time with her. But I have found that when I don't have sweet bread, I tend to buy more sweets then gain weight. Baking my own bread is healthier and keeps my sweet tooth at bay.

It also allows me to say thank you each week to certain individuals as I always make a large batch from 18-22 small loaves.

We also have had a continual flow of projects going on for several months now. I think more than anything else these projects have stolen all my time. For example, we decided to build stairs outside to our balcony and then found out that the door, the floor, the baseboard, etc. all had dry rot. We ended up taking out the trim, tile, and so on so we could replace all the rotten stuff.

This is the way of most projects. You are only going to replace one thing, or add something....and then you end up doing much more (and spending more).

I started this blog almost 6 hours ago. I was just sitting in the living room in my pajamas and Jorge (a friend that lives with us right now) informed me that we needed caulking.

We are replacing a door in the dining room. After we realized that the upstairs door was bad, we checked all the other doors and are now re-framing several of them. This house was built in 1987 and these are the original doors. The two doors by the kitchen were okay, but needed to be re-framed.

I had spent one whole day this past week getting the door re-framed and purchasing foam, shims, and so on...but forgot the caulking.

I headed off to the store and bought the caulking. I also looked at some grills and found one I liked. I then went to a second store to pick up some avocados and found the same grill, but much much cheaper.

I had David bring the pick-up to bring the grill and propane tank home. We have a grill, but it is at Maria and Travis' a lot. This was an excellent price and this type of grill keeps the grease from catching on fire.

Well...we just had cheeseburgers, grilled chicken, and grilled corn-on-the-cob. Yum! I also made Guatemalan guacamole. I added some Cayenne pepper and wow it was much better.

I also made some Spanish Potato Salad. I boiled two large baking potatoes until soft.

I peeled off the skin then cut the potatoes up into bite-sized pieces.

I then hard-boiled some eggs, took off the shell, cut them up and added 6 of them to the potatoes. I did 6 more and just had them for people to eat.

I then added 2 large scoops of real mayonnaise, (until it is creamy) salt and pepper to taste, and 2 pinches of Cayenne pepper and a pinch of onion salt.

The Spanish vary this in many ways. I have had it with cooked carrots, cooked cabbage, fresh shredded cabbage, mixed veggies, fresh onion, frozen peas, and so on.

Very yummy.

Now I am back on the couch trying to finish the blog.

I wanted to make some Apple-Coconut bread today, however, I am too full to do that right now.

We went to see the movie “America” yesterday. I made all the children go since it is for the 4th of July. I highly recommend it. It was a great movie and Americans need to understand that there is a reason that millions of people try each year to come here. It is because this land allows people to still dream and pursue their dreams. We have freedom here that few others enjoy.

And one of our God given rights is the pursuit of happiness. We sure have found that in our small piece of heaven here on earth. I never imagined that I would ever have such a beautiful home or property on earth.

This is in the lake behind our property and the children are on a floating mat, playing with their this not pure happiness?
