Cool Moon...

My good friend LaNell texts me most every weekday morning a word or two. This usually pulls me out of my sleepy stupor and gets my brain running (or at least clicking). And when I say she texts me a word or two...this is literal. It may just read, the day of the week we are on like "Monday", or it may say "Rain" if it is raining. I feel that this is her job because after all she gets up and leaves for work much earlier than I do. So, she needs to remind me what day of the week it is or what kind of weather gear I might need for the day.
Today, when i received my morning text it read...

Monday. Cool Moon!

Since, I literally read this with one eye open. I thought...she must mean...It's a cool morning...I need a sweater. But, as I became a little more coherent it became more clear to go and look outside. And sure enough...LaNell meant what she said...Cool Moon.

I ran (not really ran...stumbled is more like it) to my purse and fumbled for my camera. This is the results of ... Cool Moon!

Enjoy. And you can thank LaNell for keeping me on top of my mornings.

From Black Heels...

I finished reading my Ree Drummond book last night. The title, Black Heels to Tractor Wheels is very fitting. She started out as a blogger/chef/photographer/city girl and now she is an author.
I have her cook book but this is more of a memoir of her life. From a "city girl" going to school and living in Los Angeles to coming home to Oklahoma to meet her "cowboy husband" whom she calls...Marlboro Man.
This book is about how they met, fell in love, and started their family.
She is down to earth and funny.
I was fortunate enough to meet Pioneer Woman and Marlboro Man in person at a book signing several weeks ago. They both were so nice and signed both of the books I own. (Cook Book and Memoir)
Just so you know, I have cooked several of her recipes and they are GREAT!!!
I love the Pioneer Woman.

i have had a few complaints that i needed to post on my blog already!!!
i have had a lot going on. From being sick with the crud, starting my new jewelry business venture, and my friend Cindy being diagnosed with breast cancer.
so, I've been a little frazzled and preoccupied.

Today I would like to post a quote that I stole from Rachel, Cindy's daughter. It's definitely how i deal with things.

“Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.” -Bill Cosby
