I hope we have enough junk food to last us through the snow storm! I even bought the kitties, dogs, and birds some food. Speaking of my dog, he's loving this weather. When we got home he came running up to us and had the biggest smile on his face. He loves snow!
I took this picture from inside the house and this is a good of zoom as I could get of Snoogans the Eskimo snow dog! He was checking out his friends next door.
Here's a picture from back in January, see how much my doggy loves snow and his girl! Ok, this post is long enough. I think I need some chocolate. I hope I can find some!

Tonight I had to go shopping for a new tree. The one we've been using is a 6 foot tree that I bought our first Christmas when we were dirt poor just months before Peanut was born and had seen a cat or two. So last year I bought a cute little 4.5 footer when they were on sale. It was one of those prelit ones that are so popular. We set it up last night all ready to decorate but the middle strand of lights would not work, despite Nickel's best efforts. I attempted in vain to return the sucker but ol' Wally World would not take back my never before used tree because it had been about 7 months too long. I could have pitched a fit right there in the store like most people do, but I was resolved to not be immature and instead just left. I brought it home. I might still use it and just put a strand of lights there where they're not working. But because Wally World would not even consider helping me (they are the ones that sold me a defective tree they could have at least given a partial credit) I decided to not purchase my next tree from them. I hate Wally World anyway and am now refusing to buy any of my Christmas presents from them. This will not break their bank, they didn't blink an eye the last time I refused to buy anything from there for 6 months, its just the principle of the thing.
Ok, where was I? I need to get off this rant on Wally World. Oh yes, shopping for a new tree. After picking up Peanut from her after-school care we headed over to Hobby Lobby where the trees are 40% off this week. We wondered around and I finally picked a (non prelit) 7.5 tree. Nickel told me that he can't figure me out, first I bought a shorter one then I bought a tall one. I said, "yeah, what's your point?" Men, they just don't get it, do they? Hello! Hee hee hee!!! My real reasoning is after seeing just how short the 4.5 footer was I decided I didn't really want our main tree to be that short.
Anyway, back to my story, I picked out a tree. Peanut and I continued to peruse through the holiday cheer and came across some really cute trees. They had black ones, they had fushia ones, they had silver ones, they had the
Oh, I almost forgot. Here's a picture of Peanut with her pretty pink tree. You can't really see the ornaments, they're silver disco-balls! There's a little white angel towards the top and there is a star on top, but I guess I cut it out of the picture by mistake. Peanut's hoping that Santa will leave all her presents under her tree. Santa and I may talk and see what we can do.

Later though he called me trashy. Again I begged his pardon and he replied, 'this is the third bag of trash I've taken out today.' Well, I'd rather him take it out then to leave it in the house.
I was polite and didn't call him a single name all day. Aren't you proud of me?

Got it? Ok, here we go. Let me say, that I do think this bride looks beautiful on her big day. The groom...well, you'll see.

This is what I'm doing tonight. Or is it what I'm not doing? Either way I have guests arriving in 36 hours give or take and of that 36 hours I plan on sleeping at least half of those hours (that'd average out to 9 hours a night) and I wonder if my house will ever get clean. I think that was a run on sentence, but I'm getting tired and don't really care. I need to clean off the computer desk. Put the dead plant in the trash (yes, the Fresh-Cut Flowers Girl has a dead plant taking up space in her dining room. sue me). Disassemble my computer (so I'll have to use Nickel's which doesn't alert me to new emails as soon as they hit my inbox which might cause some angst) and move to the laundry room along with all my CDs and stuff. Move the computer desk to the other side of the room, find a table to sit my family at Thursday. I need to vacuum. I need to hit the nasty spots with the carpet shampooer I borrowed a week and a half ago from a really good friend who probably wants the shampooer back this year. I need to make another pumpkin cheese cake. I need to iron the table cloths. I need to catch the laundry up and put it all away beelse else in my house seems to want to do it. I need to find some chairs for my family to sit on while eating from the table I have yet to find. I need to...well, honestly, I need to get up off my rear end and just go do it. There I said it. Are you happy now?
Since I might not be able to be online for a couple of days (and you'll know why if I am...or not) I thought I'd leave you this:
The RevGalBlogPals have deemed this weekend a Delurking Weekend so you MUST confess to stalking my blog. I want to know who you are if you are visiting my blog, unless of course you don't like it then you don't have to comment I guess. If you have nothing else to say, say something funny and off the wall. I like a good chuckle.
Behave while I'm cleaning house!

21.05% blonde betty (gee, I call myself a blonde betty one time and my hits jump through the roof. What's up with that?)
21.05% i like big bucks (hee hee hee, funny song.)
10.53% fresh flowers for hair (I like baby's breath and fresia myself but a hibicus will give you that exoctic tropical look)
5.26% joanie a. rabbit, oklahoma (I don't know her, but I hope they find her)
5.26% making penguin sound (Peanut can do this if you need her to)
5.26% a picture of robin scorpios hair at luke and lauras wedding (she looked pretty, didn't she!)
5.26% fresh cut flowers (oh...well, that probably has something to do with my blog name)
5.26% ecclesiastes 3 1-8 (one of my favorite scriptures)
5.26% i am insecure about my looks (well, I'm not sure who you are but I do know that God made you just like you are and we all have difficulty feeling secure about our looks at one time or another)
5.26% what is a secure, insecure person (a secure person is just an insecure person faking security, trust me.)
5.26% shh there's a secret (yes, there is, but I'm not going to tell you)
5.26% lord's table captives liquid day what did you eat (well, since on the liquid day you get to get one real meal I skipped breakfast, usually opting for a slim fast or a smoothie, then I would eat a sensible lunch because I usually have lunch with my friends and for dinner I would have soup, usually chicken broth or tomato. Sometimes I would go to Starbucks and order a strawberries and creme frapaccino for dinner. This isn't exactly the best way to loose weight (the frapaccios and slim fast I mean), but it worked for me.)
What crazy searches come up for your blog?

[God] sees the real you. Undressed, no costumes, no pretense, and He loves you. He knows why you are hurting. He knows why you do the stupid things you do. He sees every mess up. And yeah, you're a mess, but you're His mess. And nothing you could do could ever seperate you from His love.

A cold front blew through last night but before it did these black birds came. There were hundreds of these blackbirds on the utility lines at one of the busy intersections in town. These birds fascinate me. I pulled into the bank's parking lot to take a couple pictures while the rest of the town drove past. The birds were sitting together making the utility lines look 3X thicker then normal. One would fly off the they next one would hop down the line to close the gap. There was an orchestra of chatter between these birds then something would happen and a whole flock would fly off at once circle the grocery store across the street and come back and start the chatter all over again. So now I can't seem to get that nursery rhyme out of my head. Sing a song of sixpence a pocket full of rye. Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie...

I went to the South Office today and ordered my favorite warm coffee and a slice of Pumpkin Bread. Breakfast of Champions, you know. Of course to shield myself from the cool winds that are whipping down the plains I went through the drive-thru. I get my stuff and off to work I go with a happy warm cup in my hand. I get to work and start drinking said happy warm cup and it's a little odd. Hmm... I think too much whip cream? I march my not quite awake bo-hind into the supply room and search for a spoon. I started stirring odd-happy warm cup and discover the reason behind the odd taste.
There is NO. COFFEE.
For some odd reason when I pay an absurd amount of money for coffee I want there to actually be SOME coffee in it. So I had to take my little not quite awake bo-hind back out into the cool winds that go whipping down the plains, and go back to South Office. This time I walked in and asked them politely to put some coffee in my coffee. They were embarrassed. I mean, their whole purpose for being to provide people with absurd costing coffee! Needless to say I'm back at work now and have almost finished my happy warm cup of (coffee tasting) goodness. I'll be my normal self in no time!

Just thought ya'll would like to know. I'm not sure who her source is but she thinks they are very reliable. Hmm.. I wonder if its the same person who told her all about the penguins and other animals she educated me about back in May. Nor do I know how this information will effect your day, but it sure made me sigh with relief. I mean, we can't have horses running around all willy-nilly in Missouri, now can we?

So Thanksgiving is at my house this year. My parents probably won't be able to come. This really disappoints me but there's nothing I can do about it so I'll just go on. I'm not sure what to fix. I could be really boring and fix what we normally have every year, ham and all the trimmings. But something inside me really wants to have bbq instead. I guess I could do both, huh? We can have left overs. I'm also going to fix a pumpkin cheesecake thing that sounds really good. I'll let you know how it turns out. What are you having for Turkey Day?
I've been tweaking around with my page. Did you notice? I wish I was more creative. Wait, I am creative, I just don't have time or desire to sit down and make it look as snazzy as I'd really like so this'll have to do for now.
I finally named my car. Her name is Gia. Nickel looked at me like I was talking Greek when I told him. But after explaining how I came up with the name he just shook his head at me. He's such a boy!
Ah... Seven Mary Three just came on. I'm a happy little girl now.

OMG! Today was Peanut's last soccer game. I put new batteries in the camera. Layed it on the table next to my keys. Then walked out the door without it. Of course.
Halloween has come and gone, but we have enough candy to last until Easter!
Here's a new picture of me. I might change my profile pic. Nah, I like the brown eyes.
And what random post is truely random without a deep thought by Jack Handy?
I bet a fun thing would be to go way back in time to where there was going to be an eclipse and tell the cave men, "If I have come to destroy you, may the sun be blotted out from the sky." Just then the eclipse would start, and they'd probably try to kill you or something, but then you could explain about the rotation of the moon and all, and everyone would get a good laugh.

Hmm... I see.
Ok, here's the product of my inspiration.
She posted this picture (and gave me permission to post it here) and upon seeing this picture the radio inside my head changed from the sweet calm music to Sir Mix A Lot's "Baby Got Back" only some of the words changed, here is what played in my head:
About the time I got to the end of the first verse I was able to change the song. Probably a good thing. I think I'll go look for my pretty blue pills....

So, here it is Wednesday. I don't have an ounce of energy but am going to muster something because I need to clean the house. At least the rooms people will see. Too bad I don't have time to clean carpets. Maybe I'll get that done before Thanksgiving. I talked Claudia, Nickel's cousin's wife the other night. They live in Texas and have three kids but she got excited when I told her I wanted her to come up for Thanksgiving. I have my fingers, legs, toes, and eyes crossed. I think she's my long-lost-older-latina twin. If the government were to tap our phone and listen in to one of our conversations they'd be lost in about 30 seconds. We change subjects two to three times a minute and can resume a previous subject without any notice. We totally misspeak but the other always knows what we meant. It's wonderful!
Well, my house isn't getting any cleaner with me sitting here bloggin with ya'll. So, good night! Sleep tight. Don't let the bed bugs bite. But if they do, bite them back!
