I'm taking a 10 break and Ive been pondering while packing. So I made some coffee...When I make coffee, I start laptop-ing, ( usually). I just take in the totality of the last 3 years and I am more shocked than if I was really watching a soap opera! THIS could never have been MY LIFE... had you asked me some years back. I wonder how close one should examine the hows and whys of it all and just be in the here and now. Sure, choices and decisions play a large roll, but look how many things are really out of your own control anyway?Do you believe that everything happens for a reason? Do you think good can come from bad, eventually? I personally think it would be oh so cool to be privy to the reasons beforehand. Then I wouldnt have to be so damn curious, right? Who knows what the future holds, but I am happy to know what I want remains constant. Darned few things I can say that I can grasp and KNOW that rope will be there.
Tears falling while packing the shop today. I cant put my finger on exact reason why, so I figured I'd just roll with it. I love my career, and its been hurt. Could be one.... Moving this so many times, things get owies. That could be another. Maybe its the journey that caused it.. From here to there and everything in between. No matter, another twist in the journey, another turn of fate. I also had a "moment" while at the book store. I would LOVE to say that I'm PMSing but we all know that aint happening right? lol I saw the MOST beautiful journal Ive ever seen in my life standing there saying, "pick me up, caress me, take me home!" It was old world,navy blue, leather bound with cording, fleur de lies on the cover, and made in Italy, and I was in love! I fondled it for awhile and rode the wave of recordings in my mind of journals past. I didnt bring it home. I decided to lust after it for awhile...LOL ( I really do make myself laugh somethimes). Who knows, I could be getting over tired. So... for a Thursday, its pretty darn wierdly good? Yes, good. I'm telling it to my heart.
Hey! Speaking of twists and turns... Here is a great tip should you happen to move your FOURTEEN FOOT Gammil Table and wish to protect your leaders.
The stretch tight that Home Depot sells.. Piece of cake to twist and turn it on all 3 leaders... no dirty mover hands, no removing pins...Nice, clean, tight, S.A.F.E.
its the easiest part, trust me!

Thats a made up name for my "go to, easy" marinade. Its how I can remember it. Have I given it to you before? Well... I'm doing it again.. cause I can. Now I have used this for salmon, and for tri tip. its really a cinch and oh so sweet yet savory, and very tender! With the pork Tenderloin you can roast whole at 375 for about 40 minutes, or you can slice the meat after marinading and grill them with some really cool grill marks:) It makes the most delish medallians you ever tasted! With any of these meats I would say to marinade them a couple of hours in the fridge at least.( for the tri tip, overnight if possible)
I like to serve with steamed jasmine rice and a favorite green... like broccolini!
3/4 cup REAL Maple Syrup ( I guarantee it will NOT taste the same if you decide to fudge and use Aunt Jemimas or something similar)
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
In a zip loc place pork tenderloin and above, chill.
Remove and place on parchment or foil ( just for the messy stickie factor)
Salt & Pepper
Roast about 40 minutes at 375
ALTERNATE-----> slice 3/4 inch cuts and grill
Reserve left over marinade for brushing if grilling.

OMGoodness someone take the damn camera away from me! I dont think I could take a decent photo if I had a pro over my shoulder!! My Phone camera stinks. My Oly is Broky, and Walt sent home my old favorite, and its THIS picture, so I guess you KNOW what that means? Yeh! Me too! I stink!
There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama, and those who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up & moving forward is LIVING
Anddddd you missed me right? Its been a very long week end and I have been digging myself out of a hole and doing all of my homework too. I visited the coast and absolutley drowned myself in as much sun as my lil body could hold. Did I mention that I miss home? Yeh, I do. Right now I am looking out my foggy window and I think I lost my dog in it. Wow... Speaking of holes... THIS may be the very HOLE I feel! CLIC
Its February 1st. January is done. Thank God. The journal pages changed, the month locked and gone. Again, moving forward.
Did you hear about the Pioneer Woman's book signing in San Francisco next week? Wanna go? I do! Her blog style cracks me up at least once a week! Go Ree!!!

"I Thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, with which I'll never part. God has you in His keeping, My Son, my Mom, forever in my heart."
