Monday Musings

Maybe I should rename is Tuesday as that's when I seem to actually write.

Weather has been so summer like it's been unreal, hot and humid.  Of course this summer girl is enjoying it but hear the cool fall like weather will be making a return soon.  In the meantime, I will try to bask in this warmth!

The week was super busy. Although did have Thursday off but feel is went by quick as I seemed to be watering lawn all day, catching up on errands, hanging shelves and art.  Hanging the shelves took a little bit of power, sometimes have bigger ideas and plans than my 100 lb self can tackle by itself.

Honestly I do probably ten times the amount of work around here compared to the man but hey whose keeping count. ;)  In fact, he took off Friday and is home today too.  It's really nice to have a job with an open vacation policy.  We are talking no maximum days off they can take whatever they want.  It fits his personality perfectly. (though it's kind of funny as he actually complains about others taking off too many days) ha

Friday the niece came over with the nephew so it was a real busy day.  We were pretty much constantly on the go.  Checked out a bigger local park, this one we had to drive too but it was worth it as the kids loved it.  Had a much bigger jungle gym and this cool safety town where kids can ride bikes or big wheels.  It has buildings with lined streets to replicate the real thing. Honestly give me a big wheel and I could have spent some quality time riding around the mini streets.  Total kid at heart.

Saturday the man and I were all over.  Conshohocken for a funfest, stopped by a cool candy store filled with all types of old school candy and then a trip to Villanova to pick up some things at their bookstore.  Followed by a visit to the Campus Corner which has one of the best cheesesteaks in Philly and is quite popular with Villanova students.  Then the night was pretty much filled with watching college football and watering the lawn.  And of course eating the candy for dessert. Would have liked to had the man for dessert too but the guy was too tired, imagine that. ;)

Sunday I had enough of all this NFL bs, seriously our athletes and celebrities get paid to entertain not to preach politics and disrespect this country.  Find other ways to protest their causes but don't impose their views on others who are tuning into watch sports for fun and escape reality for a little.  So for first time ever I just boycotted watching.  Maybe that's what this country needs to turn off their tvs, phones, computers and do more!  That's the thing everyone complains, protests, whines about what's wrong in world but what do any of us actually do to bring about real change?

Do people in this country even realize how good they have it compared to other countries?  Hey the United States isn't perfect by any means, and there is still a lot of work to be done in certain areas but it's a better than a lot of the world deals with everyday.  Think many people in the United States take for granted what they have, and don't even realize how much others have sacrificed to obtain those things. Anyway....

Not watching felt good as I got a whole lot more accomplished and had fun. Went for a long bike ride, tried a new recipe for slow cooker, baked some carrot cake cupcakes, continued watering the lawn, caught up on a bunch of other household stuff and well you get the gist.

Did I mention I'm rather over watering at this point.  Aerating and overseeding are great for a lawn but gosh it's a lot of watering.  Though at least the grass is starting to sprout in some areas already, it's nice to the fruits after putting in the labor.

Well there is a lot still to do so that's about it for now.

United We Stand

As I turn on the news to see grown men arguing about standing for the national anthem I simply shake my head at the absurdity of it all.  When I hear about protests that turn violent I am not only disgusted but embarrassed for our country.  Honestly the animals of this country act better than the humans.  It's hard to believe humans resort to such childish, immature ways. Seriously have we become that uneducated and uncivilized?

What's even crazier is how the serious issues of this country get so overlooked and spiral more out of control.  What happened to united we stand?

The United States faces daily violence occurring to many innocent people, is in middle of a major drug epidemic, has an overwhelming number of citizens who are homeless and living on streets, has people who cannot afford basic health insurance or proper medical care, has an education system that is falling behind other countries, is filled with corruption especially our political system, and well hopefully by now you get the gist of where I'm going with this.

Seriously our politicians and athletes are going to squabble over the national anthem instead of talking about and trying to solve the real serious issues of this country.   They are going to boycott such events as going to the white house, instead of using it as an opportunity to sit down and discuss the real issues.  What does avoiding and boycotting anything accomplish?  And what does having spats back and forth on social media really accomplish either? 

Lets take the flag for a moment the thirteen stripes represent the original thirteen colonies that declared independence from England; fifty stars symbolize the current 50 United States. White signifies purity and innocence, red signifies valor and bravery; and blue signifies vigilance, perseverance, and justice. It has become a powerful symbol of Americanism and represents the land of the free.

Yes the land of the free where supposedly we are free to protest whatever we want, say whatever we want and so on. But freedom comes with a price I suppose because ones freedom of expression can directly insult another's causing further divide. We don't all have to think the same or agree on everything but should be able to find a way to respect each other.  Not sit on social media like these men are doing, and calling each other out like little boys. Two wrongs don't make a right.  Come on sit down like real men, discuss the real issues and devise ways to solve them. Develop a plan of action that involves everyone.

Truth is the United States if like a house of sorts and the citizens of it are in many ways a family. Within that family is going to be huge amounts of dysfunction but that's what we all have to learn to work through together. Kind of like marriage right as for better or worse you stick by each other. You work your ass off to deal with and try to solve the issues that might develop. But you also find a way to show respect for each other and the differences that exist as well. 

Problem is there is no respect.  No one has respect for anything or anyone these days. And that needs to change. Our political parties are a complete and utter embarrassment, how can they not find a way to work together to help all the struggling american people?  Better yet how can they live with themselves everyday knowing the corruption that exists and all the bs lies they spew?  It's not just one parties, it both parties. Enough is enough, why are we electing these people who accomplish so little and are willing to sell out for money and big corporations?  We need to call everyone, including all our politicians out when they don't do the right thing.  Number one rule for all should be follow the law or there will be consequences. And same consequences for all no matter who you are. 

And what about the NFL? We are a talking about a league that has been filled with controversial athletes over the years...domestic violence, violence in general, shootings, drug issues, dog fighting, rape, cheating, etc, issues the NFL refuses to truly take seriously.  It's not just the NFL it's other sports as well.  There are plenty of athletes who are not and will not ever be role models for ours kids but yet they are. It's time all of the sports world clean up their acts especially if they want to be true role models for our kids and advance their causes. Again show some respect for yourselves, for the people in your life and for the world around you.  Be the change first!

Colin Kaeperink started kneeling during the anthem because in his words "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color". Personally I think he could have choose a million other better ways to promote his cause than by disrespecting the national anthem which stands for the very freedoms our country stands on. 

Our forefathers fought hard the freedoms we experience and often times take for granted today. And our military continue to fight for those kinds of freedoms all across the world. So is it really too much to ask that everyone show some respect for those freedoms and the very people who gave us those freedoms, by simply standing for the national anthem and having respect for our flag?

My father got drafted in the Vietnam War, my grandfather's and uncle both fought in various wars. Do you think they had a choice, no but they took it like men and stood up for this country even though they might not have even agreed at the time.  So why can't our NFL players stand up like men on the field and fight their causes off field in intelligent ways that might actually accomplish real change other than dividing this country even further? 

Think about it besides kneeling during the national anthem what has Kaepernick really done to solve this issues of racial inequality that he feels is a huge problem in this country? It's one thing to kneel but how about he actually take some real action to advance his cause, no? If you are going to cause such divide in this country by kneeling the for anthem, than start being a man and working to actually fix the problems you believe exist in this country. 

It's like all these protesters who go out causing disruption and violence, what are they really achieving but more division and hate in this country?  There are much better ways to try to achieve change than such barbaric tactics..  Seriously until everyone finds a way to grow up, work together and find a way to compromise nothing is ever going to change. This tit for tat stuff obviously isn't working. 

Yes anyone can call out American for all it's problems but if they do, then actually do something about it. And maybe find a better way to express his outrage than by disrespecting the very thing that stands for freedom?  Like I said earlier the United States is riddled with serious issues that are only growing worse by the day.  Maybe these athletes could use their millions to put into advancing their causes and helping society rather just whining about what needs to change.

Love to see these same athletes and celebrities talk and do something about the daily violence that is occurring everyday, in every city and town across the country. Do they not care about all the innocent people, of all races losing their lives to senseless violence?  There are gangs controlling many streets yet don't see any of our athletes having the balls to call them out?   Or why not speak out against the rampant drug epidemic that is destroying this country?  Or how about all the homeless who need help?  What about all the kids born out of wedlock these days, who have no father figures in their lives? Or education that is failing our kids in many parts of the country, especially inner cities?  There are so many issues that needs addressing, yet our athletes and so called celebrities are going to bitch about Trump? Come on everyone needs to get it together. 

Our athletes and even celebrities get paid millions, yet they continually seem to always find a way to whine about something.  Our military who put their lives on the line everyday get paid little and you rarely hear them whining. The very men and women who are fighting for our freedoms. It's crazy to think about. And  exactly why I am disgusted that any player would choose to kneel during the national anthem. 

Let's all start showing a little more respect for each other, starting being the change.

Oh, say can you see,
By the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed,
At the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars,
Through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched,
Were so gallantly streaming.
And the rocket's red glare,
The bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night,
That our flag was still there.
Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave,
For the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

Monday Musings

Weather has been warm which is nice for summer people like me. :)

The week was overall busy, between the nephew, Cooper and trying to still work on small things around the house it went fast.  Just placed an order for shelving for our dining area, hoping it works out and looks like I envision.  Our kitchen and living room are very open concept, though that seems to be the popular thing these days I find it harder to situate furniture and decorate such rooms.  The man and I both prefer more defined rooms.

It's amazing all the little things we do during a day, often times I don't even take the time to write about all the things on my schedules or to do list or what I'm working on daily. Kinda of just give a general synopsis half the time.  Funny how that works I will share some things but not others.

Today I'm feeling exhausted and sore.  While Saturday started off good with a nice long walk with Cooper, followed by some grocery shopping and a nice cinnamon breakfast it quickly involved more work than I was desiring.  Especially given I cleaned the entire house early evening Friday.

Since we are getting our lawn aerated it first had to be cut short and bagged.  Well the man waited two weeks, instead of doing it in small increments like I suggested. (because if you don't have a degree in it the man for some reason doesn't listen to anyones advice) ha  By waiting as he did bagging became a major chore, and there was so much grass the bag couldn't even handle it. Clumps of wet grass as he didn't even wait until it was dry to cut.  Which required me to help rake as the man was in over his head.

Since the weather was so hot and humid it made the task seem even harder. And what a mess it left the lawn and mower, the man has no clue that the mower has to be cleaned when clumps of grass are stuck to it like that...he just puts in back in shed.  He may have a MBA but kind of needs a degree in common sense at times

By Saturday afternoon we were both wiped and could barely move.  Needless to say there were naps and we pretty much didn't leave the sofa the rest of the day.  Not sure if the man even realized how much work he made for him and I by prolonging cutting like he did. Anyway....

Sunday was all about some laundry, followed by a day of relaxing while watching football.  Got my super soft blanket out, reclined the sofa and snuggled into it.  Watched some Eagles, took a power nap, made some mac and cheese with a new chicken dish and tried not to do too much physical stuff.

Monday was all about the nephew.  And after he left it was all about the lawn again, had to touch up spots the man had left chunky. Oh and weed whack with scissors as the man could not get the weed whacker to start, my dad stopped by as well and he gave it a try but nothing either.  So had to resort to using some big scissors.  Weed whackers always seem to come with issues, someone needs to a design a hassle free one.  Needless to say now I'm really feel wiped, even making dinner felt tedious tonight. Doing nothing sounds good about now but probably not going to happen.

American Ninja Warrior finals are tonight, though only one woman made it.  Which is kind of disappointing because as a woman I like to see other woman succeed in such physical challenges, even have my favorites who compete on the show. The obstacles seem to keep getting harder which sometimes isn't good as you want to see people finish the courses too.  It's a show worth checking out though, find watching it just makes you want to get in shape and try it. Though given most who compete seem to be in major shape, with some major muscle it would take a little bit of work!

Trying to find some new shows to watch this season as so many of the ones I've watched have seemed to retire.  Always looking for suggestions for good shows, please share if you know of any. :)

Soul Sunday

A desire is anything but frivolous. It is the interface between you and that
which is greater than you. No desire is meaningless or inconsequential.

If it pulls you, even a little bit, it will take everyone higher. Desire is where
the Divine lives, inside the inspiration of your desire. Every desire is
of profound importance with huge consequences, and deserves your
attention.

Sometimes desire can feel like a wave overwhelming the soul, 
other times like a wave for the soul to ride.

As is your desire, so is your will.
As is your will, so is your deed.
As is your deed,
so is your destiny.

Monday Musings

Ah it seems the Fall weather is upon us, overall the temperatures have been cooler and even noticed some trees starting to change color.  Summer needs to be longer!

So I'm sitting in the guest bedroom, which has no tv I might add, writing this and it feels way past when I'm normally dozing. ha  Why you might ask because the man's football team is playing and game started at 1030pm.  Seriously why does the NFL and even NCAA Football have to start games so dang late?  Do they realize it interferes with sleep for many?

The conundrum is if I stay up and watch game I will be tired. Yet the man staying up to watch the game may interfere with my sleep anyway.  When he watches a game it's like being live at the stadium...he yells at tv, claps ridiculously loud and makes it impossible to watch anything else. So either way I feel like my sleep will be messed up, hence why I despise late games!  haha  And the man is notorious for staying up late to watch games that don't even involve his team, those are the ones that drive me most nuts. But that's what happens when you live with a over the top obsessed sports fan. And by the way obsessed is putting it lightly.

The nephew has been keeping me real busy, but a good fun busy.  As I've said before he sure enlightens my world, our world in ways we never knew possible.  He brings this happy little energy which just brightens up the world.

Saturday we went to a local Polish festival with my sister and her family.  It was a carnival of sorts with games, rides, crafts and even dancing.  It was a beautiful Fall day which made it perfect for such an event.  The rides were a tad disappointing compared to other carnivals we have been to as they didn't have a lot of adult rides or variety.  Afterwards the man and I watched some football. And I made this scrumptious homemade pancake dinner complete with home fries and all vegan bacon. Though we both fell asleep rather early.

Sunday I did more outdoor work, trying to prepare the lawn for aeration.  Something I don't think any of the former owners even did. We have a lawn that is going to take a little bit of work to get in shape. Aerating and over seeding seem like a good place to start.

We keep saying we are going to have family and friends over for a bbq or party but some new house project always seems to pop up that we want to tackle before unveiling the house to everyone.  The man needs a little push when it comes to such things as his procrastinating ways can really impede progress.  We painted his office a few months ago and he still has yet to furnish or set it up.  I'm telling you one big shot of testosterone a week might help give him the boost he needs.

Been watching all this hurricane coverage and just wondering why do they issue evacuations only to let reporters and media come into town and cover it live?  And what kind of human being loots places during such times? (oh wait they shouldn't be considered human beings if they do that right)  What is wrong with our society?  Media and thugs have one thing in common they are always looking to exploit situations.

As I listen to the crickets chirp tonight keep wondering will the world ever clean itself up?  As it just seems like things keep spiraling downward.  Our politicians are a joke, honestly they do nothing to actually help the average american.  They would rather focus on helping illegal immigrants then their own homeless citizens.  Crimes and drugs seems so rampant that not sure how they will ever fix those issues. And morals and virtues are things that have all but disappeared in our society.

Ugh why am I even going there. The more I think about such stuff the more it really bothers me.  Yet it's hard not to think about such stuff as the minute you sign online, turn on the tv or even radio one is bombarded by the reality of it all.

On that note before I go off on a much bigger tangent think I'll simply call it a night.

And yes for the American Ninja Warrior fans out there, I'm so disappointed that Jesse Graf didn't make it to the second part of finals.  She is my favorite chick on that show!

Photos will have to wait.

Monday Musings

Weather has heated up again enjoying this heat and humidity but unfortunately Fall is right around corner and temperatures will be falling again tomorrow, not to mention rain is in forecast as well.

Holiday weekends mess with the whole week so today feels like Monday. :)

So hard to believe summer is coming to a close, how is that possible?  Are schools really back in session?  Why does it seem like of all the seasons summer always seems to go way too fast?  

Last week I watched the nephew and niece for a few days, when I have them both it turns into a somewhat crazy day as the little guy doesn't like to nap when sister is with him.  And sister likes to keep busy so it's hard to come up with things to keep her busy.  But we managed to have fun for everyone. 

Spent much of the weekend trying to clean things up and organize the house.  Sometimes I just reach a point where I need to know everything is  sparkling clean, especially the floor as it drives me crazy to walk on crumbs and sticky stuff. :)

The man woke up very congested on Saturday morning and just didn't feel all that great all weekend. Wish he would take the vitamins I bought him. He thinks nothing of taking aleve, tylenol, over the counter cold stuff yet vitamins would do him even better.  Shutter to think that colds are already circulating.  Then again went to a doctors appointment last week that seemed to be filled with stuffed up, coughing people. Hello that's panic city for a germ phob like me! 

The man and I visited friends on Sunday they bought a new house months ago and we were excited to see it.  Monday we tried to search for some bargains and even art for our house but the stores were more crowded than we anticipated.  The long lines were a turn off so we didn't buy anything. 

The nephew is back for the school year. Time to not only play but help him learn a bunch of things too!  It's so cute to watch him interact with Cooper, they love to just follow each other around. Cooper especially loves when Dylan drops him treats.  

Meanwhile praying that Houston gets the help it needs, think that every millionaire celebrity, athlete, politician, etc.,should simply pick a few families and help them build new homes.  That way the money goes directly to the individuals that need it and doesn't have to go through all the red tape of organizations.  Many people from the Sandy hurricane in New Jersey still haven't gotten reimbursed or even have their places of residences back up yet. It shouldn't have to take that long but yet it always does.  We need our government and charities to find more efficient ways to run things.

Oh and wanted to talk about Big Brother the show the man loves and I watch because it makes him happy has gone off the deep end this season but I'll wait to talk about that in another post.  

For now I'm tired, got laundry to do and just want to relax with Cooper!

Soul Sunday

If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.

We know we cannot be kind to animals until we stop exploiting them -- exploiting animals in the name of science, exploiting animals in the name of sport, exploiting animals in the name of fashion, and yes, exploiting animals in the name of food.

The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.

We must open our souls to the reality of what is happening around the world to helpless animals, we must seek justice, and fight to help and protect the innocent animals of the world.
