Please make it stop! Happy 4th of July!

I have had enough fireworks now. All last night and today and tonight of course and some idiots will shoot them off tomorrow as well. You wouldn’t know that we live in a state where they are illegal.

I was trying to nap earlier because I had to get up early today, but that did get me a little sleep before all the rapid fire noise.

We went to a Chinese Buffet today at 3 PM and the cost was only $7. What a surprise and there was plenty of seafood for me and other meats. I don’t eat regular Chinese food. Only ate til started feeling full and then had 2 tiny cream  puffs and left. Didn’t stuff myself to it hurt today. No more vegetables. Have to go shopping tomorrow and check out the fruits.

Cat on the keyboard yowling at me. I did just feed her a while ago. Her main thing in life is eating and she is picky. Hmmm sounds just like her owner. She doesn’t eat veggies either LOL!

I am bored. Should get back to reading blogs. They are adding up again. Though I would rather write something. Feel more like writing than reading.

Happy 4th of July USA!

Saved by the Bell – prompt by the Daily Post

Saved by the Bell

Tell us about a time when you managed to extract yourself from a sticky situation at the very last minute.


A couple I used to babysit for had a son who was about 13. I was 15. They didn’t want to tie him down to babysit his brother and sister so they hired me. Things went along well for several weeks and then one night he came home early with a friend and they tried to rape me. Thankfully it was time for his parents to come home so they hopped up and headed out the back door. Talk about saved by the bell (parents coming home).


5 days, 5 photos. Day 4

The Rules: The challenge is – “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”. Thanks to HBHATNAGAR for doing this post and not nominating me. 🙂    I said I’d give it a try and here I am!

I’ve decided to forgo nominations this time. I’ve bothered people enough with nominations. So give it a try if you haven’t yet and want to. Heck give 2 tries if you want to.

This is a picture of a park near me where I walk sometimes.


Walking for my health,

The geese and turtles abound.

Love to walk this park!

Pepper and Cucumber on Friday Evening

I ate 2 veggies today. Moving up in the world. I slept all day so only ate them tonight and I had ice cream for dessert.

Tomorrow is my brunch with my BFF so tomorrow I will have an omelette with meat and potatoes around 11 AM so I have to get up tomorrow morning at 10 AM. 

No plans for the holiday other than that.

Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend.
