19 is where it is at...


So yesterday I went and spent about a half hour in line ~a small sacrifice so I can do one little thing that maters because, 19 matters.
The 19th Amendment... the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. Was ratified in August of 1920 a mere 72 years after the Seneca Falls Convention ~the beginning of the Woman's Suffrage movement.
So for Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott who never got to vote and for my favorite future voters Mac, Magee, Bottsie & Fi I can spend the time to read my ballot, cast my vote and know that even though my voice is one tiny squeek in a great corus ~it is still heard.

Just add rocks...

Okay so last week on Thursday my office was 66' ~in other words cold unbearably cold, I wore my coat the whole day ~except when I went home for lunch I got to take if off then.
So the company sprang for a space heater ~my teeth chattering must have been slowing everyone's work down. The space heater they got for me has a thermostat on it so I can set the temperature for my office now.
~it is set to 80' and I love it!!! my office mate came in stayed for about five seconds and asked if i was going to invest in some cedar benches and rocks for my sauna ~if it wouldn't be so distracting for actual work I totally would.

Seriously starting to go mad...

Okay so life is a little crazy right now and I am one of those lazy people who loves to sleep in till the last possible moment ~this proved to be a little awkward today...
So I was interrupted with a couple of phone calls this morning as I tried to run out the door. ~so half way through my meeting this morning one of the guys in the meeting asked me what was going on with the back of my hair so I put my hand up there ~um yeah I forgot to comb my hair this morning.
AWESOME!!!

Cooking Hot Hot Hot...

Okay when I was making dinner tonight ~and I shouldn't tell you this but I was wearing my towel because it gym night and I need shower and I needed to eat so anyways I was cooking while wearing cotton.
Cotton on fire has a very distinctive smell ~yeah I caught my self on fire while stirring the pot tonight ~so exciting!
No worries though I kept the towel on ~I don't put on those kind of shows ~at least I don't blog about it.

I have decided to have a baby...

okay that tittle of my post is a little misleading ~mainly because I don't want a baby, but I do want someone to bring meals over to my house all week long. Janelle just had a baby and she loved the food that was brought over ~and well I stole some of it while pretending to visit. The thing is I didn't get to try the meal she raved over ~I mean it was all good and lovely she didn't have a favorite ~this one was just different and that's why she mentioned it...

Bethany's Worlds Most Refreshing Bowtie Pasta Salad

2 Tbls. Green onion, chopped
1/2 to 3/4 tsp. Black pepper (Bethany goes for closer to 1/2)
8oz. Kraft Coleslaw dressing
1 c. Mayo
Dash of thyme
Pinch of Ginger
Heap of Love (okay i just added that for good measure)
3 c. (uncooked) bowtie pasta, cooked & drained ~follow direction for aldente
2 c. cubed, cooked chicken ~grilled, roasted ~what every is easiest (Bethany grills)

Mix all of the above ingredients & refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours (which ever is longer ~just kidding, all though if you have a new baby it is a toss up)

Add
1 c. chopped celery
2 c. red grapes ~halved
20oz can of pineapple tidbits (drained)
2 c. diced apples

~Mix it up and enjoy.

Bethany did bring me some over when I told her I had to have the recipe and it really is lovely ~and I didn't even have to have a baby to get it.
