More Things I Don't Want For Christmas

By popular demand, more things I don't want for Christmas

This giant fish vase. I don't even understand why anyone would want a fish vase of any size. But a giant one? Weird.

A faux fur wine bag. Just because.

Oh how I love me some garlic. And pickled garlic is nothing short of amazing. But I apparently carry the scent with me for days and that bothers the man I've dubbed, "Wonder-Nose". So none of this for me.

No. No matter how cute you are you little frosted snowman cookie, I do not want you for Christmas. You're 400 calories. FOUR HUNDRED. I can think of so many other ways to enjoy 400 calories than just one cookie.

Pickled tomatoes. No. Not even going to taste this. Sometimes you don't need a reason to avoid something.

I also do not ever want a subscription to High Times magazine. And yes, it's about what you think it's about. Ugh.


  1. You are becoming very difficult to shop for.

    1. You must not know me very well, I've always been difficult to shop for.

  2. Just yesterday your father told me he took the garlic cloves out of the olives he bought at Big Bird's olive bar. I had told him you want fresh garlic for the green beans and he thought they would do. I told him "no," you wanted fresh garlic. Funny. & =^ )

Small Changes: Peanut Butter and Jelly

I eat the same thing for breakfast every single day. Most people think it's weird, I just think of it as fuel to get my day started. I was never big on cereal, mostly because I don't like milk. Other than a little splash of it in my tea I don't drink it.

I start my day with an organic brown rice cake with peanut butter and jelly on it. It works for me. The peanut butter provides protein and the jelly provides the yum.

I prefer the Lundberg Farms brown rice cakes. Brown rice is a good carb, white rice is a bad carb. White rice has no nutritional value and turns to sugar in your system. Brown rice is a whole grain and is a much better choice. 
I get the lightly salted ones. I find these in the organic food section of my favorite grocery store.

Now, let's look at some peanut butter and jelly. For the peanut butter I just chose Skippy because it's a brand that everyone is familiar with. I prefer the natural peanut butters, but if you don't like the texture of them and …

It's Not A Blessing if you Had to Sin to Get it

Pretty strong words but also very true. I once heard a man say his girlfriend was, "A gift from God." 

Except she wasn't because she was still married to someone else. Glenn wiggled in and turned her head and snatched her away from her husband and children.

How dare he think God had anything to do with that.

He doesn't work that way. If you want His blessings then you need to walk closely with Him. He will never bless sin. He can't. He is unable to. Sin is what separates us from God. 

Glenn may think he is living a blessed life as he runs on emotions and feelings but nothing like this will prosper. In the end it will lead to destruction. 

It already has. The family he destroyed will never be the same. 

Small Changes: Shredded Cheese

Today we're not just talking cheese, we're talking shredded cheese. This is the time of year when everyone has a party or picnic to go to, and most of the time you need to bring a dish of some kind. Many of these dishes call for cheese.

Sidenote: I'm so in love with cheese that I have to restrict it from my diet 99% of the time. I cannot be trusted with the creamy goodness that is cheese. Colby. Cheddar. Mozzarella. Gouda. Gorgonzola. Monterey Jack. Cream. Pepper Jack. Sigh. I love cheese, but it does not love me. It tempts me ever so. Today at lunch I splurged and order chicken parm. I only ate about half of it and that should last me several months. My body works much better when I stay away from cheese and dairy in general. Though, surprisingly, ice cream does not affect me in a bad way. Hmmmm.....

Anyway, back to cheese. Many recipes call for shredded cheese and the food industry has listened and provided a myriad of choices in the shredded cheese department and they hav…
