...a (fabulous lunch) break

...happy wednesday dear ones!!


I CHOOSE to be happy today anyway!!!


we still don't know what's going on with this moving stuff ~
we are moving this weekend...
I don't know where, but somewhere @^&% $#!

so yesterday, 
Jim inquired about a moving truck and the dude said that memorial weekend is
 busiest weekend of the year to move


and that he only had 1 truck left,

are you kidding me???

and the fees are double because of the holiday weekend!!!!

I'm not making this stuff up

I wonder if the airlines own the truck rental places too?!
~ gouged coming and going!!
 these are the things I think about
at 2:02 am


~ breath ~


much better
and I didn't even have to get to 1 this time :)

and truth be told

it's really almost comical now

at least that's what I tell myself to keep from
jumpin' on a bike and threewheelie-ing it to the beach
loosing my sanity
(is wheelie-ing even a word? well it is now!!)

I bet you envisioned a motorcycle wheelie, didn't you???

don't be silly
I'm odd

~ not stupid!!


I decided to take a (fabulous lunch) break today
and treat myself to
one of my absolute favorite salads
Pear Salad with and Bacon, Gorgonzola and Candied Walnuts

doesn't this just look sooooo yummy?!
below I've included a recipe so you can have one too :)

Pear Salad with and Bacon, Gorgonzola and Candied Walnuts

(makes 4 tasty lunch salads)

1/3 cup apricot nectar
 2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon ground mustard
3 medium-large pears, peeled, halved, and cored
2 green onions (sliced)
4-6 slices bacon (cooked and crumbled)
1 cup gorgonzola (crumbled)
(if you don't like this cheese, you can substitute with goat cheese) 
 1 cup candied walnuts
12 cups mixed salad greens

~ Directions ~

In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the first four ingredients; shake well. Combine the pears and dressing in a large serving bowl. (to keep the pears from browning)  Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Just before serving, arrange pear mixture onto four beds of beautiful salad greens. Then sprinkle the tops with the green onions, candied walnuts, gorgonzola and bacon crumbles.
~ and Viola! 
a most fabulous lunch break!!

come on ~
let us go sit under a lovely tree somewhere,
bite into this delicious tastiness

and Enjoy!!!

(lip smackin` good I tell ya`!!)

 ...thanks for listening
~big hug~

  1. Your week does get the comical award, if we don't laugh, we will cry. My week and prior weekend was a close second. I just shake my head and say, it will get better. I totally understand and feel crazy for squeezing in this comment when I HAVEN'T EVEN PACKED for a trip at 6:45 AM tomorrow morning....what is wrong with me? Oh yeah, I have a day job! And I've been very sick...so I laugh along side of you my friend. :)

  2. Hi Rosemary,
    You are really chipper today despite the truck rental thing and not knowing where you are going to live. Wouldn't it be fun to be a gypsy? Well, maybe not!LOL. Got carried away there for a minute.


  3. Oh sweet,
    how are things today ? hope something happy happened, and that you, inspite of what is --not going on-- just now, will be able to move into your rented home in time,---
    Hugs, Dorthe

  4. May be I don't understand...truly you are moving you don't know where??? What an exciting adventure!!! Your salad looks delicious! I love gorgonzola!!!
    Big hugs Rosemary!


be kind ~ be graceful ~ be beautiful ~ be you!
