The Sun Shines upon Tiny House

Party Weekend.

Lots going on this weekend. We attended a birthday party this afternoon at the Rail Road park.  There was some rolling stock, a steam locomotive, and an enormous model train layout on display.  There was also a scaled down train that folks could ride in a circuit around the park.  You’d think I would include some pictures of the wonderful old rail cars and the engine, but that would be tough to do as I forgot my camera.  I hate when that happens.  

My daughter-in-law flew into town for her baby shower tomorrow. There’ll be no pictures of that either, not because of my forgetfulness this time, but rather I doubt the women will want me to hang about. Not sure what I will do during that time, but there is a Willams-Sonoma store not far away.  I can enjoy an unescorted trip to a cooking supply store – there is danger in the air, basically from Mrs. Phos choking the living shit out of me later for spending all the money I will undoubtedly spend.

Meanwhile we have custody of our daughter-in-law.  I made up some lumpia, braised a couple sirloins and we spent he evening catching up.  Huskies were happy to have her here as well, especially when she tossed them some of her jalapeño popcorn later in the evening. I wish there was time to have the whole family together, I love having Tiny House really come alive with the kids. Odd how I spent most of their teen years hoping the kids would finally leave the nest and now that they are gone I miss them so very much.  Must be another one of nature’s tricks on ol’ Phos, sort of like the hair/no hair thing.  

Hope your New Year is off to a good as start as mine.  All the talk of doom and gloom, each new year actually holds promise, much as the lottery ticket I bought – I might be a millionaire, at least until I check the ticket, so this year may hold hidden bounty and happiness. Fortunately we have more control over the upcoming year then we do over the lottery so it will be up to us as to how it goes. Meanwhile, I will just enjoy your company on the trip. Happy New Years all!

FS:Thanks!! Best wishes to you, but not the evil which lurks within - we've got to make this an "FS gets well" kind of year!!

EC: You epitomize the power of positive thinking, hopefully some of that will rub off on me during the course of the year!

DAK:Make the popcorn on the stove the old school way. Toss some jalapeño slices in the oil with a couple of kernels, cover, then put the heat to it. When you hear the test kernels pop, add the rest of the popcorn seeds. I use 2/3 a cup in a three quart pan. Shake the pan back and forth over the burner and the corn will absorb the heat from the peppers. Good stuff. Oh, and never put your face over the open pan as the peppers heat up or you will mace yourself. Happy New Year!

/t.: Thanks /t.! I hope you and yours have a great New Years and a lot of fun tonight.

Phosgene Kid, don't check the lottery ticket. Keep thinking you're a millionaire! ;)

Happy New Year. Couldn't agree more about having more control over our lives than we think.

TPK-
LOL...I make pop corn the old fashoned way too- in an old pressure cooker- it is the best.
I leave the hot peppers out- none of us could bear them! :)
Funny what you said about the kids being gone...
Mine are at their Grandmothers- who has asked to extend their visit until Thursday....
WHAT will I do when the eldest one goes to college???
Tomorrow will be my first day alone in the house for 3 weeks-
I hardly know what to do!

:)
Enjoy it...I will :)
Happy New Year! :)

Mayden:I did stop by, but there I couldn’t see any link to your comments, ergo I didn't comment. Don’t know if it is a bloggerbug or has something to do with the old/new Blogger conundrum.

Becky:Happy New Year to you as well; hope by next New Year we are seeing baby pictures...
