I envision a nice batch of freshly baked homemade crescent rolls in this serving dish.
Hmmm, maybe a platter for ham slices.Hark! I am having another vision..... I am standing in the kitchen on Christmas morn in my fluffy white apron, pouring battter into the waffle iron.And my favorite find of all........ I can just see this in the center of the table piled high with paella. I have never made paella before but there is a first time for everything.
Sigh, note for Christmas 2009, Buy My Own Poinsettia!
And can somebody seriously tell me what is wrong with my angel. I really love my angel with the old fashioned stained glass apearance. Problem is my kids think this angel is ugly. My feelings are so hurt, I just love her.

This has been especially trying year for my family and today this poem came to mind...................
Footprints in the Sand
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?"
The Lord replied,
"The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you."

..... and why the title Crazy Neighbor Lady. Because all of my neighbors must think I am insane from that crazy, hysterical, cackeling laughter I let loose with yesterday!

My oldest daughter is in a Early Childhood class in highschool. Today they will be taking the children around to classrooms to trick or treat. Of course since they are just 3-4 years old the teens can't really dress up in a scary costume. This is pretty mild don't you think?
Anyways.... this is pretty nasty stuff. It is all slimey and moldy inside. I don't know if the fact I got this from a dollar store has anything to do with it but I honestly think I will stick with my glade plugins.

My method is to dig up a big chunk of ground, drop it back down to the ground and reach down with my gloved hands to start wiggling out the grass and roots. I am lucky I was paying close attention yesterday because as I flipped over a chunk of ground and was just getting ready to reach into the soil I saw this little critter..................................ICK!! I still have goosebumps today. This little guy is pretty small and the smaller they are the more poisonous they are.
