Week 51 Monday (12/29/14)

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Tomato Bread Salad        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         This is one heck of a pretty salad. It is made with tomatoes and a lot of spices. It doesn’t look difficult to make, but it is extremely healthy and one of those salads that would add true beauty to a plate.  This is a must try! Jenny, I think this one’s for  Linda, Martha, and you.

Random Reflections - Bucket List

         I would like to vacation in Colorado. My previous trips to Colorado occurred when I was a teenager. The first trip was to Estes Park with my entire family and my Mom’s parents. There were eight people in our blue station wagon that had the fake wood on the side.
         The trip was wonderful. My memories are of Kim and I climbing the mountain behind our cabin, and horseback riding. I remember feeding the squirrels by hand, and playing my first game of shuffleboard with my Grandma. Life was really good back then.

Wants and Wishes

What is a wish?  According to the first definition from Webster’s Dictionary it is:

1:  to have a desire for (as something unattainable) <wished he could live his life over.

         After reading this definition, I realized that I wouldn’t have changed a thing about how I have lived my life. I have had many interesting jobs and a wonderful profession. I have a great family and many friends. If I had to live my life over, then I would just do it the same way, so what is the point? I love my life, and have so much left to do in this one.
