My fire was started post 4:00 in the afternoon on Friday. It was sparked with some ruby red grapefruit…..yummy and delicious, sweet and cold! It was my snack to hold me over until later. I had plans! Plans with the bestie. She and I were going to the movies with some of the girlies to see Dear John…Yes Dear John!
pink stuff. Now you know how I love pink…but not this shade of pink. Downing a good dose, I prop myself to return to lala land on three pillows. The forest is burning down! The price I have to pay for loving hot spicy food!
Jackie’s 5:00 alarm is going off…the real alarm, the one that wakes you…just when I was finally resting again and the fire was somewhat under control, smoldering at best. 5:00 on a Saturday you ask? ...yes, to go Hog Hunting. Now you can say this with your best British accent and it sounds better than my sweet southern drawl of Hawg Huntin’. Hog hunting…? We have not lost a hog…we don’t even own any! It’s a guy thing, a hunter’s thing…a sportsman’s thing. He can have it! Anything like that, that requires you rise at 5:00 in the morning…he can have it! Plus it’s too cold outside.
Well needless to say I could not go back to sleep after he left. I hope he finds those lost hogs. I stay up and began to write this out and my stomach is reminding me once again it wants some fuel. This time I think I will stick to something safe, mild and easy…toast and a boiled egg. Eggs over easy toast!
I’ll finish the to-go-box of Buffalo wings for lunch.
Am I a glutton for punishment or what?
As the sun comes up it reveals a periwinkle blue sky…a promise of more rain?
I’ll take what God gives me because each day is a gift and I have unwrapped this one with a smile and a beautifully colored sky.
Keeping it real and uncomplicated…be true to yourself
My word for 2010-Experience
I experienced heartburn.
