Day 15: Secret Chefing

My family thinks I live off of leftovers and pizza when they're gone.





Let's not disillusion them.

Day 12: 'Daily' is a loose term...

Clearly I'm not very good at posting daily.

Such is life.

I know I'm a homebody kind of a person and I tend to only go places that I already know - I take the same roads to work and back, etc.

Last night I decided that I wanted Panera for dinner and the one in North Port has a drive through. It's only one exit north of the exit I get off for my house so I figured it'd be fastest and easiest to just take 75 and get off on that next exit.

Which I have never done before.

As soon as I passed *my* exit and I was in unfamiliar territory this is how I felt:




Basically, I am a hobbit and hobbits are me.

In totally unrelated news, I also got lost. Because I lack a sense of direction and I turned right instead of left. But I *realized* that I was lost without the aid of a wizard or dwarves of any kind.

So we're counting this as a win.

Feb. Day 4: Science!

So I failed to make it yesterday. I was kind of distracted by trying to finish A Dance with Dragons.

Which I did.

At *mumblteysomething* this morning. :D

And now I'm watching a recorded version of the debate between Bill Nye and Ken Ham. For those who don't know, Bill Nye is a scientist who has made it his life's work to get kids into science - I grew up on his Bill Nye the Science Guy tv show.

Ken Ham is a young earth creationist, meaning he believes that the book of Genesis is *literal* and the earth is only 6,000 years old.

And that people coexisted with dinosaurs.

*eyes him harshly*

Here's the link I'm watching in case any of you want to see some of it:

Bill Nye vs. Ken Ham - NPR

It is almost 3 hours long altogether.

Feb. 2 - Moral Absolutes

Sometimes the conversations I have after movies are a little strange. We discussed moral absolutes and whether there are any. Donna believes that there should be and that if everyone accepted this and followed them then the world would be peaceful.

Which is a nice pipe dream I think.

Moral absolutes are great, in theory, but there are always (or at least I always think of some) situations where something can be necessary even if it's still not ideal.

What do you guys think? Are there absolute rights and wrongs or is everything a matter of looking at the situation and making the best choice?

Feb. 1 - this is a bad year

Things have been a little crazy around here lately.

My grandmother died on January 12. It was good in that she wasn't truly sick for very long. It was less than a month from her first real symptoms to her death. Every family member and friend that was still able to travel made it down here to see her before she passed.

But, most importantly, I know that she is back with my grandfather again. Which is good because she was never really happy after he died.

Today we had to put one of our cats down, which is always hard. But he had become very ill and the treatment was iffy as to whether it would work and what kind of life he would have with it.

*sigh*

So this blog, aside from not being updated like I planned, is rather depressing. Death and dooooommmmm....

Blargh.

I'm going to do a post every day this month, inshallah.

Today you get a picture and some video.

This is the only tree in our yard that follows the seasons:




A spot of red in a sea of green (and brown). Winter in Florida people. It's special.

And this is our Yard Cat, who seeks to trip me whenever I walk around outside. I think she means it out of love.
