10 Goals for 2010!

So I was really not wanting to do " New Years Resolutions" this year cause I allways fail badly and it is just not worth beating myself up over for it!
Than, today I read a post over at OceanDreams and have decided to fallow her and do what she is doing! So this is my 10 Goals for 2010! ( also stop over by OceanDreams and check it out yourself! She is a TON of fun to fallow and read her blog post!)

1. I am getting back on my Vegitarion diet! I lost 10 pounds the month I did it and want to keep on moving foward!

2. Journal faithfully at least 3 times a week! I have allways been VERY bad at journaling and would love to get better at it! No, I will not beat myself up if I miss a few days!

3,Complete my photography portfolio and get people booked for photoshoot! I really want to pull my photography out and get it set up so that I could do sr. photoshoots again this year! it worked out last year, but since the move its been crazy busy around here!

4. Scrapbook all my pictures! I have so many photos and I realy dont want them all to get ruined before I get them in the scarpbook! I wasnt to enjoy myself and my photos!

5. Enjoy every minute of being single! This year ( 2009) I have struggled allot with being single! I want to enjoy every minute of it this next year! I am going to do stuff that I would not be able to do unless i was single! I am going to enjoy my single life to the max!

6. Add a fury friend to my family! I have allways wanted a dwarf hampster and this year, I really wanna get one! If and when it happens I will post pictures on my blog so y'all can help me pick a name!

7 Get in the kitchen more! I love to cook but dont get in and make "fun" stuff that much! I have so many new cool recipes I have been wanting to try!

8. Write more letters! I have so many friends who love mail ( and so do I) I really need to write more letters! I belive the art of letter writing is leaving our world..but not mine :)

9, Smile, even in the hard times! I so often dont smile in the hard times of my life! I wanna smile more

10. DO BETTER AT BLOGGING!

ok..well thats done, and I dont now how well i did! Oh well..leave me a comment and tell me how crazy I am ! LOL! <3

Wishfull Wendsday!


ok..so today I am doing Wishfull Wensday that The Seattle Smiths hold every week..go check it out!



I WISH SANTA HAD REMEMBERED TO BRING ME.....................


well, for real, I dont think I was totally dropping any big hints this year so I dont have anything huge but...


I would have LOVED a nice black picture frame with my name spelled out in those really cool pictures! You now the once that they take any object, building, whatever and if it looks like the shape of a letter, and you can spell your name!
Its like this one....

My little sister Jerusha, who is looking over my shoulder right now says she wishes Santa would have brough her a horse! One stands out more than any others, her pony Wonder! Yes, I did say her pony, not really hers but everyone calls it that for now!

well..I thinks thats all for that now!

So yesterday not long after I blogged a friend txt me a told me my facebook had been hacked and I needed to go change my statuse ASAP! She was right, it was no one i knew who hacked me but it sure was a NASTY message that was left! Sigh, Its sad that people live to just do stuff like that :(

Y'all have an awsome wensday and stop over my the Smiths and check out all the other Wishfull Wensdays! And , if your somone from there reading this blog, WELCOME and feel free to become a fallower! I love my blogger friends!

The last 24 hours have been really hard for me..let me try and recap it all for you.
Yesterday I had a meeting with the "new" guy who is running are work area...and found out that my job was only a temporary one from the begining ( i did not now this) and since there doing allot of moving around in our are..they do not have a postion for me anymore! They are letting me work through November but after that I do not have a job..and I will need to find a place to live.
So right now im kinda num...not sure what to feel..not even sure if I am feeling! I know God has somthing worked out..its just the resting and waiting im not good at! I getting box's again..and packing my room for the 6th time in 2 years..and looking for a new job..for the 5th time in 2 years.
Today a dear friend of mine from my collage year sent me a small package with Mark Hall's new book " Your Own Jesus" in it! It came at just the right time..every page i read just bless's my heart! How good He is to bring things when I need it!
So..I would ask you all to pray for me...pray for a job, a house, money, and just me.
Right now I feel so down...and have not felt this way in ages....sigh..thanks guys.

Harvesy Fest..Cold...Rain...And so much more!


Harvest Fest was on Saterday and thankfully the rain stoped before and stared back up after! It was cold and misty like all day so we did not get the amount of people we usally do but it all went ok!

I dressed as a Choctaw Indian and several of the girls wore the Anabelium dress's so we really made it look like the old days down here in the Historic area.

The action up at the school went well..we sold ALLOT of quilts and other fun stuff! One quilt went for $900! All the money goes back to the school!


So..I love cooking Holiday type stuff and found these on the Hostess With The Mostess blog! There a Martha Sewart recipie!

Here is the recipie for them if anyone wants to try them! I have not yet but plan on it soon!


Ingredients
Makes 22
1 sugar pumpkin, (about 1 1/2 pounds), peeled and seeded
1/2 cup
Pumpkin Puree, or canned pumpkin puree
1 cup pecans
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Pinch of ground cloves
3/4 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
2 seven ounce packages almond paste
Gel food color, orange, brown, and green
Cream Cheese Frosting


Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two muffin tins with paper liners. Grate pumpkin in a food processor or on the large holes of a box grater (you should have about 2 1/2 cups). Transfer to a medium bowl, and add pumpkin puree and pecans.


In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves; pulse to combine. With machine running, add oil and eggs; process until smooth, scraping sides of bowl as needed. Add pumpkin mixture; pulse to combine.


Spoon about 1/3 cup batter into each cupcake liner. Bake until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Make the marzipan pumpkins: Tint two-thirds almond paste orange, adding food color a dab at a time until desired color is reached. Tint a quarter of remaining paste brown and the rest green. Shape into leaves, stems, and pumpkins (see instructions below).
Decorate cupcakes with frosting and marzipan pumpkins. Store in airtight containers at room temperature up to 2 days


Marzipan Pumpkin How-To: Using a small rolling pin, roll out green almond paste about 1/8 thick; use a leaf cutter to cut out leaf shapes. Roll brown into small ropes; cut and shape into stems. Using the palms of your hand, shape orange into three-quarter-inch globes. Use a toothpick to poke holes in tops of pumpkins and to press creases from top to bottom. Attach leaves and stems to tops with a bit of frosting.

It has been raining like CRAZY around here! It rained for allmost 3 weeks than stop for about a week! This morning at 1:30 am it started up and again and has not stoped once! The grammer school we work with here let the kids out at lunch because of all the flooding and they may not be able to open all week since this rain is suppost to keep up!

I dont mind it to much! Its brought in the cold and i am FINALLY able to wear my sweaters and scarves!

well..I am done for now!
