While at work today I saw the very first sign for the many pumpkin farms in this area, and I can not wait to take David to let him pick out his pumpkin for our porch jack-o-lantern. It has become a family trip and party to pick the correct pumpkin and to get it carved and set up on the porch, just right.

I like to pick one smaller pumpkin to make us some pies and we will get this done on this trip too. I love this time of year, the weather has cooled off and we have so much to do this time of year.

Roll On

Every morning as I return home from work I see people in such a rush to get to work or where ever they are going that they will almost run you off the road if you have the audacity to go the speed limit. God forbid you try to save money and drive less than the posted limit like I do some times, I am not a person who is in a hurry most of the time and I am getting very tired of getting the one finger salute as these jerks go by. Makes a girl want to carry a firearm with her sometimes. Good thing I do not own a firearm.

Yesterday, my sister and I were on our way to Wlamart when an 18 wheeler decided that she didn’t like us and tried to run us of the road. I was so upset that my sister called the cops and they said that they couldn’t do anything. Boy was I bent out of shape with that.

Changing Uniform Styles

Cherokee Tooniforms The Lion King Print Scrub Top

There are multiple varieties of uniforms in the United States.  One of my favorite types of uniforms are nursing uniforms.  Every time I visit a doctors office or hospital I see the medical staff wearing these and they seem to be quite comfortable in their attire.

The history of medical scrubs and uniforms has changed greatly throughout time.  Forty years ago when my grandmother was a nurse they never would have dreamed of dressing in scrubs.  They wore extremely white uniforms with a cap on their heads.  Today it is an entirely different story.

The part of scrub uniforms that is always the most interesting to look at is the
nursing scrub tops.  There is a large variety of designs to choose from.  From flowers to cartoon characters, almost anything a person is looking for exists in a scrub top pattern. Perhaps the most interesting patterns seen are at pediatrician’s offices.  The pediatric nurses can often be seen wearing children’s designs on there scrub tops.  I think that this is a nice addition to the pediatrician’s office.  These designs can help put the children at ease during their visit.


I recently did a favor for some friends. The girls husband was adamant about wanting her to do something specific, but she is so lazy that I ended up having to do it for her and now he is angry with me. I am not doing favors for anyone else anymore. I refuse! This is total stupidity, kind of like shooting the messenger. I am so over it.

My advice to others, think very hard before you help others. It can backfire on you and you will end up feeling used and being angry yourself. Oh well, I am going to get over it and move on, but I doubt I will talk to either one of them for a very long time.

Evil black insects

The other morning I decided to get a jump on my gardening that I has been neglected for the last couple of weeks.  The one thing I didn’t expect to have meeting me outside was a little black insect; hundreds to be exact.  There are multiple measures next time that I know I need to have in place.

The season is young and I didn’t expect to have such an encounter.  I was only outside for two hours and I was completely bitten from head to toe.  I was miserable afterwards.  In fact, I still am itching.  The next time I decide to do dome landscaping I will have to be sure to not wash my hair first, wear a hat, put on some bug spray and equip myself with knee pads!  Maybe this is the magical combination to reduce being attacked by black flies!

At any rate these bugs are evil and I wish I could garden in a bubble.  Unfortunately that will never happen so I must arm myself the next time I decide to go outside in order to fight their army.

Wedding invitations

I have gotten a lot of RSVP’s from the Wedding invitations we sent out. I am beginning to think we will have everyone accept. So far they have all responded with an affirmative. This is a good thing, the more people who come to the wedding, the better it will be. The reception is always a lot of fun if there are a lot of people in attendance. There will be a full liquor bar too, so it will be really interesting to see what happens.

We are hiring someone to video everything as well as a photographer. They are both from the same studio and have an impeccable reputation. I am so excited! This is definitely not going to come soon enough for me.

Juicy goodness

Usually I dread going to pick up groceries every week.  However, this week I was pleasantly surprised.  While shopping the produce section I discovered watermelon!

Watermelon is extremely nutritious, not to mention delicious.  I have always been surprised at how thirst quenching this melon can be.  Personally, I have been known to eat watermelon to not only quench my thirst but also my hunger.  The major reason for this quality is that most hold 92% water by weight.

The watermelon does have a large number of carbohydrate,s but next to no fat.  The fat that does exist merely comes from the natural sugar found in the fruit.  I highly recommend this fruit to anyone who wants a refreshing and versatile fruit.
