Hot! Hot! In Okla

Today it has reached 107 degrees in Oklahoma.  They say the heat dome is over us.  I truly believe it! I ventured out to my vehicle and the heat took my breath away.  So the rest of the day I’m going to stay under the ac and write letters.
My goal is to write 4 letters today.  I miss getting letters every day in the mail. So far I have got Cheryl N, Jenn B, Amy Beth S letters wrote.  That makes me happy.  I do want to get Joni, Karen G, Shelly C and Karyn G letters wrote asap.   I’m also trying to decorate the envelopes a little as well.
Earlier today I decorated my Passion Planner.  I found enough stickers in my stash to decorate two weeks.  I really would like to order stickers from Etsy but am trying to be on a no spend budget.  Then I tell my self I can spend $10.00 but that doesn’t get you a whole of stickers.   I would end up with two decorative sheets of stickers.  I need to find some kits on sale with cheap shipping.
Everyone have a great day and stay cool!

Memorial Day Weekend

Here in Oklahoma the weather has been beautiful.  It’s in the lower 90’s with a nice breeze.  Mr. C has been outside most of the day.  Brody has been a huge help with grilling.  As always we ended up grilling way too much.  Which should mean leftovers for my lunches this coming week.

This weekend I have missed my loved ones.  Lots of great memories floating around in my mind of my parents.  Miss the family gatherings when mom and Grandma Pearl were here with us.  Each and everyday I miss the wisdom that mom and dad shared with me.

My new job is going okay.  I really am going to love it once I learn more about it.  It’s a learning curve for sure. No comparison to the flower shop at all.  Love the bi-weekly check so I know what my pay is each payday.  Most important I have health coverage.  At my age healthcare is critical.  It only takes a second for a accident to happen.

Will enjoy a paid day off tomorrow!  Wow who doesn’t like being paid to stay home? I’m over here doing the happy dance!  I feel like my new career is opening new doors for me.   Although in all reality I must say I need to give praise to God.  He is the one who has made all things possible.

Tasty Tuesday

Items I sent my Partner

I belong to the Facebook group SnailmailersRus.  Love this very active group!  I especially enjoy doing the recipe tags.  This is the items I am sending my Partner Marcia.  As you can tell I am enclosing some Watermelon seeds.  Am sure your wondering why I enclose the watermelon seeds.  The reason is because Rush Springs is known as The Watermelon Capital of the World.  
So when sending out my recipes I try to enclose at least one watermelon recipe as well.  Just adding a little touch is how I like to row.  If I have time I always enjoy decorating my envelope as well.  I am all about happy mail.
So if you enjoy pen pals you should hope over to the Facebook group and check us out.  You will not be disappointed.   The admins for the group stay on top of everything.  They do one heck of a job with 4k in the group.

Egg & Hashbrown casserole

A perfect Sunday morning.  Am cooking a egg and hash brown casserole.  It is very easy to make with ingredients you should have on hand.  As many of you know I’m all about casseroles.  So this recipe is perfect for my family.

Egg and Hash Brown Casserole

Prep time   15 minutes
Cook time  45 minutes
Total time   1 hour

     1/2 lb breakfast sausage (or you can use a combination of ham, bacon and breakfast sausage).

      Chopped veggies (optional) I used onion and green peppers.

       12 eggs ( today I only had 6 eggs)  so went with what I had.

        1 cup Milk
        1 package of frozen hash browns.

        1 cup cheddar cheese (shredded). Sometimes I use Mexican cheese.

        Salt and pepper to taste

       Brown breakfast sausage.  
       In a bowl, beat eggs and milk.  Stir in all other ingredients.  Put in a greased
        9x13 pan and bake at 350 for 45~55 minutes or until well set.  Make sure the middle
        of casserole is done.  Serve topped with Salsa and addition cheese.

This makes leftovers at my house.  Which is always a bonus.  I’m always looking for easy and quick
recipes.   Some are hits and others are misses.  This one is always a hit.

Thank you for stopping by my blog.  I really appreciate you taking time to check me out.

                                                                  Grannie Karen and Kara
                                                                    Kara and me

Tammy, Dana and Becky hosted Kara's baby shower. They did an awesome job for sure!! Tammy always goes the extra mile when she hosts party's.  What  I do know is that I am going to ask for her help when ever the need happens for us! 

The car racing theme was awesome as it defines Kara and Dylan's free time.  Perfect for the co-ed baby shower. Plus daddy to be has his race cars he drives.  If you don't know our family is huge into racing!!

Visited for nearly 3 hours before I went home.  Was nice to catch up with family and friends.  I really need to make more of a effort to visit with family more.

Can't wait till May when baby Laiklyn arrives!! You know this baby is going to be well loved!!

                                                                   Kara's Baby shower

Gifts I brought to shower

                                                                        Kara and Dylan
                                                                                       I had a great time at Kara and Dylan's Baby shower!  Lots of family showed up for the event.  Am so excited for Kara and Dylan as they enter into a new chapter in their lives. Baby Laiklyn is going to be loved and spoiled.  I spent about 3 hours at the party having a wonderful time.  Tammy Deal my cousin always does a great job at hosting.  As far as I am concerned she is the hostess of the decade!  She hits it out of the park every single time! 

The theme was car racing. Tammy and Dana put a lot of work into the perfect presentation for this shower.  Am so going to ask Tammy for help when I finally have a grandchild.  Now if only May would hurry up and get here so we can see baby Laiklyn!!!
