What's a girl to do?

Is anyone else excited about the season premier of Grey's Anatomy? I sure am!! I had to race home after our school open house....well technically, I had to stop at Target and then race home. It's just starting so I made it just in time.

I need advice. I'm bored with my blog. I have been so busy that I haven't had much time to blog, but even when I do have more time, I'm not sure I'm loving the name of my blog. It just doesn't seem to fit. Yes, I'm blonde....but I don't feel like I post a lot of thoughts on here. It's more about our everyday life with a few thoughts thrown in. ha! So, I'm asking readers....few as you help me out. Should I change my blog name of just keep it? If you vote for change, what should I change it to? I definitely need a makeover or at least a new header, so that is going to happen whether I change the name of my blog or not.

Boiled Chicken....Yuck!!!

The smell of boiled chicken that is!! I hate gags me. I hate that yucky white foam that sits at the top of the pot even more. *shudder* I've discovered something that's allowed me to never smell that smell or see that foam again..................The large micro-cooker from The Pampered Chef.

Many of you know I started selling Pampered Chef. Well now that I have, I've discovered several new uses for many of the products I've had forever. I've had this little wonder for a while and only recently found out I can use it to cook the microwave!!!! Now I'm not an eater of boiled chicken right out of the pot....or right out of the microwave, but I use it in several of dishes I make. I put 2 chicken breasts in the micro-cooker, put it in the microwave for three minutes, turn the chicken over for an additional minute or two and waaalaaa......they're done! I took the chicken breasts out and shredded them for a broccoli chicken and rice casserole I made tonight. I was amazed! This really was the best $10 I've spent in a long time! Not only can I cook the chicken, but I use it for just about anything...I even steamed my broccoli tonight. It sure has made my life easier!

Cow Whisperer?? You be the Judge...

I was uploading some pictures tonight and going through others I took earlier this summer. Wanted to add some that I took at my in-laws in July before I went to Michigan. There is a pasture behind their house with cows and a goat. I took some pictures at sunset one night. Still haven't gotten Photoshop out and looked at it. That's my project for this weekend. So all of my pictures haven't been edited.

While I was out in the back taking the pictures, the cows and bull started walking right up to the fence. I was using my 55-200 mm lens so I couldn't get much of anything when they were right up at the fence by me. I actually got to pet them. Barry said they never come up to the fence to anyone so I feel pretty special! I was a bit scary for me. I've never been that close to a cow before. I'm a northern city girl I guess. :)

Here's Billy

The sunset was amazing!!

Tressie was checking out the cows. Ok...I made her pose like this...haha....She had been there like that, but then I ran in to get my camera and took some pictures.

School's going great. I finally feel like I have enough energy to make it through the day with kindergarten. I don't need a nap as soon as I get home now.
