Chatty Thinking . . . a little bit of everything . . .a Nutty Chatty
Last week my grandson decided to make a dessert for everyone. I didn't hear a thing. He was so proud of himself. And hey - it was chocolate. Can't go wrong with chocolate - right?
Look at all the stuff in my house.
Can you believe it was edible? Even tasted pretty good. It is a secret recipe, but he said that I could share it with you - my blog friends. Behind him to the left is his peacock he made at Vacation Bible School. And yes - there is a knife in his dessert!
Recipe As told by GS:
20 pieces of chocolate (from his Halloween bag)
1 chocolate bar from same
microwave 40 seconds
take a silver spoon and mix
add whip cream
microwave 17 seconds
stir 14 seconds
add one cup of lucky charms
pour Hersey's syrup on top
add whip cream on top
do no stir
microwave 23 seconds
1/2 cup more cereal
aluminum foil on top
put on Ben Ten toppers
Let sit 1 1/2 hours
Any one want some? lol
My daughter got me hooked on this show on TLC - Say Yes to the Dress - have you ever seen it? Some brides pay $70K for a wedding! Oh my gosh. It's a funny show - and kind of interesting. It's like people watching and you can see the different family dynamics. They had a marathon about - let's say the large bride. Poor girls - they had a time of it - some of them anyway. But some had self esteem you would not believe!!! Did you know there is a dating site for men who want a big woman? They will only date big women! I'm getting such an education this summer.
Ever notice an abandoned building? Why do places that are unattended get run over with weeds and cracks and lose building material? I guess when they don't have someone to take care of them - it happens. I wonder if people are like that?
And something else to think about is work ethic - do you know that 'the way things work out' can depend on someone else's work ethic? I mean who you get on the phone - the person who answers the call - can change everything. Some people are willing to work a little harder and check things out for you. Find an answer. Give you a little deal. Another person who answers can be lazy and just tell you they can't help you right away. And that's the end of it. I have had so many instances where I've seen this.
Okay a little scattered today in thinking I admit - but these are some of the things on this lady's mind this week.
And I have no idea why or how to get rid of the blue or the underline! It has a mind of it's own!
Now here's something to think about - what is your opinion of this quote?
"We all wish we could have a bit of (House's personality) in our lives... To watch someone who's free of that gravity - of caring what people think - you're watching somebody who's flying. He doesn't have that weight." ~ Hugh Laurie
