Macaroni Salad

My Mom used to make this macaroni salad when she didn’t make her German Potato Salad.  Food Network published this recipe.

Well…once again cravings took over. I made my salad and was quite pleased with how it turned out.  Elbow noodles – cook per box instructions leaving al dente, drain and cool.Chopped three stalks of celery, and green onions.  I sliced four radishes as well.Add a quarter cup of apple cider vinegar, half of cup of mayonnaise, and yellow mustard to taste.   I also added two boiled eggs, chopped.  Mix all of the ingredients together, and add salt and pepper to taste.It was not my mother’s, and certainly not the recipe from the Food Network, but it was so good.Sprinkle with paprika…or not.  Just eat it.

Let me know if you try it?

Blessings.

Okay

A reminder that I don’t have to do it ALL, right?  I am not a super wife, Mom, or co-worker, although I would like to think that I am.

I am exhausted from doing way too much…slowing down at least for today.  I am enough.

Happy Tuesday.

Five

From my Passion Planner last week.  I have been praying – meditating on this all week.

When the kids were little, our concentration on friends were those with children of similar ages and interests.  As adults, those interests have changed.   My work has changed…David’s work has changed.  He has the time to be more involved with the local community theater.  We have met some incredible people along this path.  I am so very grateful for the exposure to so many cultures and groups.

I miss my Christian involvement, and have guilt about not being involved with church.  However, I feel as though I no longer belong there.  Again, it is about growth and change, and it isn’t all bad.

I like the people I/we that are surround us.  I love my besties, and miss them terribly when we can’t spend time together.  I love our friend groups, and they are most definitely a diverse group of people.

Need to remember that I should be a good person to be around, to encourage others to be better or bring them some amount of joy.  I also need to remind myself that it is okay to let some of them go, especially when they bring me down.

Thoughts?

Blessings.

Sunday Thoughts

It’s not always easy to do, especially when He shuts the door that you want to go through. Sometimes I think it is harder to see the door get closed then it is the window opening.

What do you do to keep the faith in His will and your wants?

Saturday Afternoon

Super Regional at Arkansas…college baseball baby!

Arkansas won today against Ole Miss 11-2. Tomorrow is game two.

This is my favorite place with our Dexter watching the game on ESPN while it rains in Florida. I have to say this has been a nice afternoon.

Happy Saturday.

Chronic Pain Scale

I know that last month was Lupus Awareness month, but this popped up on my news feed on Facebook.  I live between a 5-7 normally.  Today I am more of a 10-11, and on the verge of more than that.

Pushing it takes so much out of me.  Stress that shouldn’t be there – work – adds to my daily struggle.

Happiness is a Friday, and maybe some much needed rest.

Blessings.
