I am trying to write a poem or two for the Regional Ramblings paper, but nothing is coming to me!

I even watched my muse yesterday.  Remember the movie crocodile Dundee?  When I watched that for the first time I wanted to be a writer.  I wanted to travel all over the world meeting interesting people and writing about them. 

Well of course now I write about the most interesting people in the world – my family:-)  I don’t get to travel around the world, but I do get to travel sixty miles a day to and from work.  Lots of time to think! 

Anyway, I can’t seem to focus on a subject for my poem.  I was hoping plunking on the keys would inspire something in me, but I better keep reading instead, because this is not working!

Well I seem to have stirred up a bit of buz on my FB page. I put a teaser on there about our new little bundle of joy on the way and people are interested! TEEHEE!

Finally…A Hit!

I have attempted to make meals that are not boring and not the same every week.  I have been told by Ben and Mitch to stick to the old favs – cause they aren’ t much for experimenting – they like what they like.  But I get bored very easily and I don’t want to eat the same thing every week. 

I finally tried something different that was a real home-run! 

I had some hamburger buns left over in the fridge, so I took them out, cut them in half, slathered butter on the top and popped them int he over to broil for two minutes.  I fried some hamburger with chili seasoning.  Added the hamburger to the bun topped with shredded cheese and broiled for another 2 minutes.  Both of them loved it and expressed thanks more than once.  This morning Mitch said I should really make that again. 

So I guess I won’t stop cooking for the two picky-butts:-)


I smell it in the air.  It was so cool today we had to wear a cover for our skin!  I like it…actually I love it!

This is my favorite time of the year.  Not just because my wedding anniversary is right around the corner, but because the air is crisp the ground is starting to harden and the leaves will be changing any day.

The air of fall seems cleaner than any other air of the year.  This is definitely the best change of seasons.  It was so hot and muggy the last few weeks and now it’s fresh and new again. 

You have to love northern Minnesota its extreme weather changes!
