Some of our daughters "cool rocks"...and stuff...
Since there won't be any new episodes of Gold Rush for who knows how long, I've been watching Deadliest Catch on Netflix. That show stresses me out. Every single time they show anyone throwing the rope/buoy all I watch is their feet to see if this is one of the times a guy gets tangled and either goes overboard or ALMOST goes overboard. I almost can't watch this show.
A few years back my father went to France, and came back with a love for goat cheese. I totally laughed at him. So then I tried it, and it turns out I love goat cheese too. (If you've never tried it, you definitely should AND it's lower in fat than most other cheese...so you can eat more! :-) My favorite is Chavrie in the "pyramid" - spreads soooo smooth.
I haven't posted about it, but we have our garden tilled and we have a bunch of seeds planted in the garden, and a bunch of seedlings in pots taking over our sunroom. We are thinking maybe THIS is the year we have some real success with our garden. :-P
The gym thing has been going well. The other day there was a gal complaining that the soap dispensers in the showers were often out of soap. Now, when I say there is a "soap dispenser" in the shower, I mean it's the kind they put by the sink to use to wash your hands. Only a tiny squirt of soap comes out. Truthfully, I figured they were really only there in case you forgot your own soap or body wash - I didn't think anyone would be using 30 tiny squirts from a hand soap dispenser as their means of washing up in the shower.
Ha ha! Our daughter is hooked on the show "Saved By the Bell" on Netflix! (I'm sure I've seen every single episode.) Didn't we all have a little crush on Zack? (Or Kelly if you're a guy, lol!) Have you seen the actors who played Zack and Kelly lately? To the right is a recent photo (courtesy of TMZ) when the two actors happened to meet at a charity event. They're both still really cute, aren't they? :-)
I have mixed feelings about the televangelist Joyce Meyers, but, I liked her page on Facebook and I enjoy the inspirational/encouraging things she posts - here is today's: "Every believer has a ministry. It may not be a public one, but you've got a ministry to your children, your spouse, your family, to God." Also, Rick Warren (who, amongst many other things, wrote the NYT best seller "Purpose Driven Life") posts really great, thought provoking posts - another great page to "like".
This is a really cool (and short) YouTube video from Alaska of a bald eagle, a fox and two cats all on one woman's porch. If you check out some of her other videos, you'll see the eagle is a frequent visitor. How cool would that be, to have a bald eagle just sitting on your porch??
