Kickin and Screamin all the Way

Last week I started my English class. It is a block class and only lasts 8 weeks. It is English Literature and my mind is not wrapping around the readings. I get so confused with the readings and how to make sense of it all. I pray that I can make it through the next 8 weeks and pass this class! I'm kickin and screanin all the way!

A Little of This and Some of That

I can't believe it has been almost 2 weeks since I have blogged. So much has been going on I can't seem to keep up.

School has been keeping me busy, and my classes are going good. I seem to have my face stuck in a book quite a bit these days..........I'm always hoping for a read for fun as I call it, but it always seems to be text books that my face is stuck in. I guess if college degrees were easy everyone would have one.......haha

The weather around here has taken a turn for fall, and quickly looking like winter is on its way. Almost all the leaves are gone, it's been in the low 20's at night a few times and the sky looked like snow yesterday, but held off.

I have a friend who is headed to Iraq on Tuesday, and I'm not really liking this, but what can you do other than pray for a safe return. So if you would please keep him in your prayers too.

I have had major fun with canning foods this year so far. I have done, spicy black beans, spicy pinto beans, smoked salmon, salmon, peaches, beets and my new endeavor is making apple butter and canning that.

Oh and I bought a gym membership and I have been going to the gym. I go to zumba a couple times a week, and step on Fridays and the rest of the time you can find me hoofing it on the treadmill and doing other workouts on the equipment. I have been doing this for 2 weeks now and dropped 1 pound.......UGH one 1 pound! What gives!

Mix It Up

For many years I have wanted a Kitchen Aid mixer. I have asked for one for my birthday and Christmas but it has never showed up until a few days ago. My wonderful Husband sprang and purchased me one. Ohhhh so happy am I.

I couldn't help but hug my new piece of kitchen equipment.( sorry I don't look so hot here, just came home from the gym) I love to cook, and this is just the thing to add to my collection of kitchen goodies! Now looking online I have found a bunch of attachments that I seriously think I need, So those go on the list next.
Today I made homemade from scratch brownies, using my mixer to mix them up. Talk about yummy! Tomorrow I will have to hit the gym really hard to work off those 3 brownies I ate tonight.
