lunch recess


A very excited Mr. Nick was very chatty about lunch recess. It seems Nick B., Tyler, Harrison, Mitchell, and Nick were playing a really cool new game they made up. There is a devil and another bad guy, God and an Angel, a ball and I forgot the rest. The game involves a dirt whole and the blacktop is the H-word(that’s hell if your over 18!)Nick said he only played God once, he was usually the devil (I’ve called him stinker, monkey and fart-bag, el diablo on rare occasion but never flat out the devil). Good always wins is the part of his story that I liked the most. Thank you public education for allowing a game with religious overtones at recess. I rather have them working their imagination with some religion, than fighting over the rules of handball! ¬†carry on Nickers, carry on.

Baking Monday


Southern women love their butter and I love butter too, so I got to thinking, I’ll see how they make a cookie, I found this recipe(no butter, my southern people are letting me down) so I took a chance with one eye!


1 c. shortening

2 c. sugar

3 well beaten eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1 c. sour cream

5 c. flour

1 tsp. salt

3 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. soda

3 tbsp. sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

Cream shortening and sugar; add eggs, vanilla, and sour cream; mix well. Add flour sifted with salt and baking powder and soda. Drop from teaspoon onto greased sheet. Flatten with greased glass dipped in cinnamon sugar and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Not sweet, I can taste the baking powder as an after taste the boys wagged their imaginary tails as they ate these babies.

2 good


O.K. so the t-shirts on this website crack me up. If I had money, my children would never be in trouble because when they walked in the room wearing one of these shirts I would just laugh. See what money can do! Well for now, I will visit this website, get mad at my children and have some kind of semi-happiness!

Check out some of the designs
