Long time no see....

Wow, it's been a while since I wrote on this blog.  Working and mostly busy life, and not taking the time to write or share, is the reason.  The Christmas season is upon us.  Some of us are very happy and love this time of year, however, there are some of us who find it a difficult time for one reason or another.

I work in retail and I see a lot of people, mostly women, and I see them happy, and I see others sad.  Remember, everyone has a story.  Sometime I have time to listen to some of their stories, or at least bits and pieces of their lives.  They tell me where they come from, which I always find interesting and enjoy listening to.  We talk about their husbands, their culture, their foods.  I have one customer that brings me a great dish from her country whenever she makes it.  I love learning about other cultures.

So, I say to all,  that I wish you most of all, a lot of love.  It's the most important thing in life.  If you come upon someone who looks like they need a hug, give them one.  You may make them a little happier. Smile and say how are you, or good morning, or hey to everyone you pass, as they will remember and make them feel good inside, and you too.

May this Christmas season bring you much joy!

All my love,

Joyce

Life is funny.....

Life is funny. I don't mean it in the haha way, but in the amusing way.  You sit and think of things that you experienced while you were growing up and a wonderful feeling of joy passes through you.  Then you think of things you did that were so embarrassing or degrading, and a feeling of sadness passes through you.  It's joy and sadness.  Sadness and joy.  You can't change it, and you would probably do the same exact thing over again.  But there are a few things you wish you could change.  You know better now.  You're stronger and brighter and your rules may have changed, or maybe you have rules that you didn't have earlier in life.  You know now who you are and how much you will take, and how much you will give.  It's a wonderful feeling when you finally find out who you are.  You know yourself better.  You know where you came from, you know where you've been, and for the most part you know where you're going.  even if you try.  It's the sadness you felt from tragedies you went through. It's the joy that you lived, loved and played.  It's this feeling of contentment that you can't explain

As always,
I Wish You Love,

Spicy Cod Fish/Corned Beef Fritters Repost


These fritters were so delicious. I never thought of adding corned beef, but it was a quick tip on the package, plus I added onion and jalapeno, so here you have it.........enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 package Salt Fish Fritter
1/2 can of corned beef
(Cod fish or bacon bits can be used instead of the corned beef)
1/2 small onion diced
1 jalepeno pepper seeded and diced
2 cups of water
Vegetable oil for frying








Mix all ingredients together and let batter stand for 10 minutes. Fry by tablespoons in 1/2 inch of oil until golden brown. How easy is that?????

XOXO,
Joyce

She's gone.....

Here's the thing.  The eggs started hatching and the empty broken shells started showing up all around her.  Then I could see the little duckies heads poking out from under her.  She didn't move, and I didn't want to scare her so I went inside. And..... a few hours later when I went back outside to check, she was gone and all the duckies with her.  Haven't seen her since.  I've been looking but no sign of her.







Hopefully she and her babies will show up this weekend.  They are so little that I'm sure she's taken them somewhere safe until that get a little bigger.  I soooo wanted to see the little ones.  Ugh!

To be continued.....
