Now Playing: Day 3077-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining
 
 

 

Did someone say...

Time to take it down a few notches and get back to a little bit of COOKIN' WITH LITTLE OL' ME... right here in the country!

20180611_000335_resized.jpg

 I don't know about you... but we all need hobbies to keep our minds from far more stressful things in life. On my good days what I really enjoy doing is cooking. 

This is an old school recipe but oh-so-tasty!

If you're counting calories and fat don't you worry because this dish is a little bit waist friendly..

So get your apron on and get ready for some quick easy MONKEYBREAD minus the monkeys!

 

One to two cans of biscuits

3 to 4 tablespoons of butter preferably light, yogurt or organic

Cinnamon sugar spice

Vanilla decorative icing

One bundt cake pan

One large spoon

One butter knife

 

Yep...it's that easy!

The rest of the recipe can be found on today's podcast~blogcast video.

Enjoy & Bon Appetit!

50 Shades Of Schneck... HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! :)
Mood:  celebratory
Now Playing: Day 3072-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining
 
 

Just when you think you're alone... soaking all your cares and woes away in a big ol' antique claw tub...

THINK AGAIN!

On today's podcast~blogcast... part 1 of 3 different paranormal... spiritual... the afterlife or whatever you may want to call it or believe... because this is actual real footage of three separate voices we caught on VHS video tape while staying at the historic Schneck Mansion.

Mind you... this is not Eric's voice and most definitely is not my voice... however someone else must had Eric's back years ago on our anniversary night.

 

50 SHADES OF SCHNECK!

 6/6/2018~HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! 

 Stay tuned for part 2 and part 3...

Introducing... The SURGEON
Mood:  d'oh
Now Playing: Day 3071-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining
 
 

Well... I'll be a slice of cornbread and biscuits!

Who we have here...

 

Introducing... The Surgeon?

 

It's been a pretty eye-opening day that started this morning once I had called the hospital and my specialists office to cancel everything. Of course they have their concerns... however moving forward everything is pretty much left up to my discretion because things have never gotten better only worse. Same as with the last and most recent surgery trying to figure out issues with damage caused by radiation therapy. The surgeon had to vacate surgery once they got in with the scope because things were past the point of any further options.

So... after having a little heart-to-heart on the phone this morning. My specialist has me coming in early next week to discuss things and have offered me another surgical date later next week.

Between having some very vivid dreams and symptoms that are a bit disheartening along with not feeling. I do not feel physically ready to endure any type of surgical procedure... this might be for everyone's best interest. If you ask me will I even move forward with surgery next week? Right now... I would have to say no. So it's a good thing to give myself a little bit of extra time because we all know our body better than anyone on the face of this Earth and that includes any doctor... any surgeon or any Mayo Clinic.

 Till then... there's always room for smiles and

oh-so-much laughter!

 rved.

The Furever Bond... We Miss You Littleblue♡♡♡
Mood:  sad
Now Playing: Day 3069-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining
 
 

8am

 It's been one year as we begin going through the steps all over again... the dreaded phone call that our beloved Littleblue was beginning to quickly lose such a brave battle. It wasn't until holding her paw while the veterinarian assisted her to a peaceful passing that I realized the most precious part of life.

Hand and Paw... I gave her the comfort and love that she had given me for so many years while taking her last breath.

 

Cancer

 

Not one single human being will ever understand the journey unless you too have been in those shoes... every step between first diagnosis... and the comfort of trying to compassionately help someone during the last stage of their Journey... even a fur child. Losing a sacred life to cancer 

The one thing that if I could firmly and strongly suggest anyone that decides to have children or fur children of your very own... is that you allow your child or children the right to express their emotions.

Growing up and feeling as if expressing your emotions was some sort of character flaw is not the way to parent a child. Then in turn growing up as an adult and being made a mockery of by showing or expressing your emotions as merely being deemed having a "mental problem"... is the most damning way to treat your child.

We are furever blessed to be able to spend some of the most memorable moments of our life with our beloved Littleblue. Even during her own brave Journey with cancer.

20151124_194029-1-1-1-1_resized.jpg

 At 8 a.m. this morning... we finally allowed ourselves the opportunity to grieve and look back through photos and videos that we could otherwise not do over the past 12 months. It was just far too hard for us to relive.

Even our furbabies remain with us through this Lifetime and Beyond. Their spirit still remains until we cross the Rainbow Bridge... Hand & Paw... Together.

20170604_012159_resized.jpg

In memory of our beloved Littleblue.

Forever loved and never forgotten to the Moon & Beyond~

The Power Of Trust ♡
Mood:  special
Now Playing: Day 3068-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining

 

It has literally taken me months to build trust between myself and this handsome young buck.

Trust is not only a very hard thing as a human...  but even more so for an animal such as the deer. 

I think as humans we more so use hunting as a means of casual weekend hobbies... when in all reality... we should be spending time learning how to respect all of God's creatures both big and small.  

 

Allowing them The Sacred Gift Of Life... not death.

 

Only a mere two feet separated myself and this amazing... yet mesmerizing gentle soul.

I never believed in hunting... and I never will.

Instead I will continue the remainder of my life believing in the Love of All Creatures... God's gift for us to love, care and nurture. 

Truly... A Once in a Lifetime Moment~

The Waiting Game...
Mood:  chillin'
Now Playing: Day 3053-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining
 
 

Here we are once again... playing the waiting game. Another scan that means everything to my treating specialists and critical care team.

 

Trying to keep ones sense of humor and staying upbeat can sometimes be a bit tricky... especially when you're not getting very much or very good sleep. But like many times before... we always make sure to get by and end the evening on a far happier~lighter and absolutely h-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s note!
