Morning's light

I sigh in the silence blissfully
steam from my coffee flying.
The quiet echos beautifully
Night is slowly dying.

Peace bounces off the new suns rays
Orange, magenta, purple, azure...
The plants reflect new mornings haze
The coming day remains unsure.

Soon my babes will arise
with smiles and golden hair,
a new dawn in their eyes.
Their radiance will pulse and flare

I will nurture them on
and watch as their minds expand.
"Don't be life's pawn,
Your hold it in your own hand."

In the mornings gentle grace.
I think of my loves smile.
His tenderness, his face.
To hold him, it's been a while.

I raise up from my seat
To begin the new, lovely day.
I stand strong on my feet
and there I will stay.

Till the night comes with its own turn
and darkness wraps around me.
Till my dreams bubble and churn
and I awake to a new sun to see....

Instant Gratification

You know when people say, "God must have a fucked up sense of humor."?  Well today, I think God does have a fucked up sense of humor.  Now don't take this the wrong way... Tomorrow, I'll wake up and think he's just fine.  But my faith in Him is constantly tested.  And today, for whatever reason, I'm in one of those moods. 

I am a people watcher.  I can't help it and have always been that way.  And I sit back a watch, and I SWEAR it seems like the fucked up assholes of this beautiful and equally  horrible world get all the luck.  People with bad ju-ju oozing out their pores, living forever in good health.  People concerned only about themselves, getting everything they want without raising a pinky!  I think if God was all knowing, and loving and caring of the race he made, he would be "nicer" to the people who were good and let the Devil have the bad ones. 

I like instant gratification, I don't want to wait for "salvation"  or "heaven" to see that the suck-tastic people aren't there, and therefor in hell.  I want to see child molesters, rapists, and murders, get cancer and fight for their lives until the last painful breathe is squeezed from their frail, tired bodies.  Not the woman who has two children and husband, who is ethical, and loving, and God-fearing....  I want to see greedy, selfish bastards, fall on their faces, and loose their businesses and homes.  Not the man who busts his balls off, day in and day out, over and over and over again to provide for his family.

So today, I choose to be angry with God.  C'mon Almighty, why don't you help the good people out today instead of the coke dealers in Mexico who successfully smuggle millions of pounds of drugs over the boarder a year?  It'll make you feel better about yourself. 

So today, I choose to hate on those mother fuckers...  The useless men and women sucking up and using my good, clean oxygen.  Go kill you self or something...  At least THEN you'd be doing something useful.

So today, I choose to be mad.

At home remedies

Ok, I'll say it...  I'm a hippie.  But I'm also broke, there for I love at home remedies!!!  I know a billion and five and use them all often.  I decided to write up some I have used and know work, for ya'll.  Please if you know of any that I might like, let me know.  Despite what the doctor says, I do NOT need a pill to fix EVERYTHING!!!

Upset tummy:  This includes mild heart burn.  Mint!  If I get a belly ache, or an unsettled stomach I'll suck on a mint.  If it's really getting to me, I'll eat a large York Peppermint Patty.  The upset belly is gone almost instantly!  One of my favorite things to do when my kiddos have upset tummy's is make lemonade and put a little peppermint in it.  (either by extract or shredded mint leaves)  They love it and it settles their belly's as they drink it.

Pink Eye:  Johnson's and Johnson's No Tears Baby Shampoo will clear up pink eye (and prevent the rest of your family from getting it) in 2-3 days.  Now this doesn't work for all cases.  Bacterial Pink Eye will not be cured by this.  Most Pink Eye is caused by dirt, feces, and other foreign bodies entering the eye and changing the pH levels in the eye.  And, low and behold, the shampoo has perfect pH.  You can apply two ways.  3 oz of water and 3 drops of shampoo mixed up and dropped into the eyes, 2-3 times a day.  Or you can take a nose sucker (I have no clue what they really called) fill the inside up with water and drop 1 drop of the shampoo down into the water, shake the bulb, and spray (gently) into the eyes.

****Ok boys.  This is a WARNING.  This is about "girl" stuff and may gross you the eff out, so to continue reading, skip this next paragraph****

Yeast Infections:  Believe it or not.  MOST yeast infections can be cleared up with Garlic.  You can take garlic pills (found in most grocery stores or pharmacy's) dissolve 3 into a cup of water and douche with the garlic water once a day for 3 days.  That will get rid of it.  Also, you can do this once a week to prevent them, if you are getting the infections often. 

High Blood Pressure:  These are tips to help with the high bp.  It does NOT cure anything and if your blood pressure is high you should always talk to a doctor first.  But to keep mine from shooting up here and there due to stress and other things, and protect my heart as much as I can, I take fish oil pills daily.  Fish oil has been proven to assist with a lot of problems with the heart, as well as help you prevent yourself from ever getting them.

Also, water helps a bunch.  The more you pee, the better.  Every time you need to urinate your blood pressure shoots up, and afterwards it'll fall.

Oily face/acne:  Make your own face mask, using a table spoon of sugar, an egg white, a dab of toothpaste, and lemon juice from half a lemon, mix and, Taa-daaa!.  The sugar exfoliates the skin, the egg white has 2 positives.  A. It dries and that makes the mask, a "mask" and B. It also has a drying agent in it, helping dry extra oil up on your face.  The menthol in the toothpaste opens you pores and the lemon juice sucks your face dry of oil and toxins.  Use daily until the pimples/problem is cleared up and then use at least once a week to maintain the pretty skin.  If you have dry skin and acne you can also use this, by just lowering down on the acidy fruit.  Instead of a lemon, use a strawberrie or two.  Let me just add...  I have seen this work on terrible cases of acne.  Doctors, and Proactive....  None of that stuff worked.  But my mask sure did :)

Ok, my hands are starting to hurt and I have to clean, so that's all I got for today.  But I'll continue to do other blogs like this if any one is interested. 

All I can say is they work, and this self proclaimed hippie, loves these remedies!

Life as of Now (9-11-11)

Lets see it's been a long while since I have had a chance to write and much has happened.  I don't even know where to start....

Husband:  Hmmm....  He's still the sweetest guy ever.  In fact just this morning (at 6:15 to be exact) he was up getting ready for work, and I was laying drowsily in bed when I suddenly remembered we were OUT OF COFFEE!!!  *gasp*  My worst nightmare!  He asked me "Are you upset?" and my, 6:15 in the morning on a Sunday response was, "Hell Yeah!  I'm pissed!"  I fell asleep and he went to work.  My son woke me up at about 8:30, and I stumbled down the stairs prepared for a coffee-less morning.  I walk into the kitchen to make breakfast for the kids, and there on the counter sat, a small can of coffee grounds and donuts for the boys.  That man ran into town, and got me coffee, before he had to go to work.  What a fricken sweet heart!  Anyways,  we are still broke, and still waiting for him to finish school.  On the upside the only thing he lacks in becoming a paramedic, is taking and passing his National Exam, which he takes this coming Wednesday, the 14th.  I am so damn ready, and excited for the next, not so struggling, chapter in our lives to begin, I could blow up!

Kiddos:  They are still smart, beautiful and healthy, thank the Lord.  My step daughter seems to be fast on her way to becoming a scientist.  Every time I talk to her she tells me about her awesome science projects she is working on in school.  My eldest son started Kindergarten and I am amazed everyday at how close he is to reading.  Every sign we pass on the road he is in the back seat, sounding out the word, "Gah rrr aaa nnn bah rrr eeee, Granbury Momma!"  And my youngest is still ornery and starting to talk well.  Just last week, he told me "Nigh-night Momma, wuv oo."  My cup runneth over.

My Sister:  Finally left her perpetually dull douche bag, found another man and has since moved here to Texas.  We have had little time to hang out, but I am eternally grateful she is finally here and happy :)
Myself:  I'm still me...  Being bitchy, hating on people, loving on my friends and family, and working.  I still don't get why some people are selfish and think of only themselves.  Why some people are fucking rude.  And why the worst people always have the best of luck.  My book is at an utter standstill, because I can not seem to find the time to work on it right now, with all the current craziness in my life.  I hope that all of the people who are also being affected by my husbands and myself current status of monetary stagnancy, My kids, wifey-in-law, mother, and other family and friends, bare with us with patience and understanding.  It will get better.  On a side note (as if I don't have enough on my plate already)  being that Shane will be done with his schooling and stuff, I am trying out for a local theatre company for the role of Miss. Hannigan from the play Annie.  Just for fun, trying to get my life back on track after the last year and a half of no fun-ness.  Wish me luck.

Anyhow, that's all I got for right now... And I'll be sure to hop on here the next time I have something to bitch about and of coarse the time....

A Shout Out to a New Favorite Author...

I will post another blog about life in general after this one, but I have had this one planned for a while, and just haven't had the time. 

I wanted to give a shout out to an author I have found, and fallen in love with (despite her sudden dislike of Ghirardelli Chocolates)  ;)    Heather Killough-Walden.

I get most of my reading material through my kindle because for me it's cheaper this way.  One day I had just finished reading another book and had nothing to move on to, when I saw an add on Facebook for e-books for only .99 cents.  Ok!  Don't start guys!  I am BROKE!!!  .99 cent books sounded right up my ally!

So, I go to the book store on my kindle and find these cheaper books.  I found the first book of a series (The Big Bad Wolf series) and I completely plowed through this book in a day and a half.  I loved it!  Twist and turns, just enough lovin' to make you smile, but not enough to make you feel like you have to hide the book from your husband....  Characters you fall in love with.  This book was everything I look for in a fiction/fantasy novel.

I then jumped back on my kindle, and being they were only .99, I bought every book she had written and published through Amazon.  I have since, read every book, and loved, every book.  Forever Neverland is kind of like a sequel to Peter Pan that is amazing and fresh with a totally new twist on the long loved fairy tale, The Redeemer takes a spin off of Jesus and Judas that will make your jaw drop and stay there through the whole book, and the Big Bad Wolf series is a much needed spin on werewolves and vampires.

Don't let the cheaper prices of her books fool you, she is new and she is amazing.  I am not the least bit afraid to put her in the same league as other authors you may know and love, like Sherrilyn Kenyon, Laurell K. Hamilton, and P.C. Cast.

If any of my readers have a taste for fantasy, love, action and drama all in the same book then check this lady, Heather Killough-Walden, out!  You won't regret it!
