My name is Lindsay and this is just so I don't feel guilty for not keeping a written journal...

looking forward

I've been online learning about GIFs. 

Long story short, I'm going to be posting a lot of this:

I got these off Tumblr.  ...Is that OK?

The rules were so confusing.

So, you know...


How do I make these myself?

I'm off to ask google...

Later friends!

Well, I turned on the captcha.  Have fun proving you're not a robot!  Enjoy the blurry word and blotchy number!  ...Or don't comment.  No wait.  How about some written letters?  Some old fashion correspondence??  hm? 

I CHALLENGE YOU TO WRITE AND SEND ME A LETTER WITH A BLOG-POST COMMENT.  'Cause that not nearly as troublesome as the captcha.  Is it?

...If you don't know my address write it anyway and someday ..someday...

As a kid, if I ever expressed a desire to receive mail, my mom would say, "If you want a letter, send a letter."  I would just sit back and hope that somebody out there had a mother telling them the same thing and they decided to heed that wise advice.  ...And was, of course, going to write to me.

I was waiting for that letter.

Speaking of baggage I never did get a cabbage patch doll.


OK now,  I've got pictures from Christmas that I never posted/journaled.  I glanced through them and thought eventually, I'll post these...  And while sifting I glanced at this sad iphone picture of my 3 handsome brothers.  

They're not sad.  The picture quality is.  I think Colton just beat someone at Scramble.  Was it me?  I think not.  Tyler is being a gracious ...loser?  Was he the beaten opponent?  Kendall is eating ice-cream a few of us had just picked up after stopping at Taco Bell.   

Whoops.  The TBell trip was a secret... 

But the reason I'm just posting this one is WHAT THE HECK IS THAT WHITE BLOB IN THE MIRROR????  I don't think my parents have a giant lamp with sticks and leaves...

If you squint it looks like a ghost/monster eating salad.  You know, like this:

It's vegetarian, which makes it more charming than scary.  (Hey Tyler- "I don't like meat, I just like to call meat late at night and hang up...")

Did you hear that New York is banning large sugary carbonated drinks?  (just heard that on the news)  Oh, and there is talk of making cigarettes a prescription-only thing?  (also heard in the news while at the dentist's office today)  ...Meanwhile, pot is fine.


I miss my brothers.

I lived with them for nearly 2 decades but was busy pining over cabbage patch dolls.

This will NOT become a cooking blog for obvious reasons

Mike and I both made cookies today.  It wasn't planned.  I mean, I didn't wake up this morning thinking this was a cookie extravaganza day.  I actually woke up thinking MY ALARM IS JOHN MALKOVICH.  You get it right?  'Cause that guy is ALARMING.  whoa. 

Yeah this is good blogging.

I made cookies first.  I had been tracking my calories and around 4 pm I deserved a reward.  Cracked wheat for breakfast, veggies for a snack,  ...COOKIES!

Yes, this is good dieting.

I propped up the ipad on the counter to enjoy 'Doc Martin' whilst baking.  They kissed!  Doc and Louisa KISSED!  Oh, but then of course, he ruined the moment.  AND I decided to go with chewy chocolate instead of traditional choco chip.  ...Probably due to nature's monthly cycles. 

This is getting intense.

The cookies ended up just mediocre.  (The only saving quality was the bit of almond flavoring I snuck in to feel rebellious.  ...Is snuck not a word?  I'm getting the squiggly line.  sssnuck.  There it is!)  Sometimes these cookies are amazing, sometimes not.  I refuse to believe that it is due to my refusal to measure everything.  You know how annoying it is to scrape shortening out of the tablespoon scoop?  Eyeball it people.  Dry ingredients end up mostly on the floor and that's OK.  I don't let that make me sad 'cause I'm making COOKIES!

When Mike came in (probably to make sure I didn't make the mistake AGAIN of broiling the dough instead of baking it.  ...I'm a good cook .) he commented that baking cookies in our little toaster oven is so tedious.  I said yup! with my mouth full of warm cookie.  He said 'Hey! I'll be at my dad's tonight, how about I make up some dough and take it over there to bake on BIG cookie sheets and then we'll have cookies all weekend and more to take to church since we promised the kids in our classes that we teach that we'd have cookies on Sunday!'.  I said gluYUPmph! (mouth still full).

Did you not know that our oven is broken?   

The 3 people reading this already know.  ...They've been in my kitchen.  They have even perhaps had my cookies.

Well, the 4 of us are getting bored...


Suzie likes the cookies and wizard-princess-fairies never lie.

Oh, and I lied about John Malkovich being my first thought this morning.  I do find him alarming though.  Alarmingly AWESOME!

Also, I should have those little "rate this post" options at the bottom of each post.  Yeah?  Except instead of having boxes like 'funny' 'useful' or 'inspiring' they would be options like 'waste-of-time' 'go-to-bed-Lindsay' or 'impeach-Obama'.

Lots of great ideas on cookie day!

Who first introduced me to Good'n Plenty


Here's some light entertainment for your special day-

And for some sentimental humor, can you guess the movie??

Professor M: What's that? Who's talking? 
Mrs. L: Well, it's only General Gordon. He belonged to my late husband. I had four. 
Prof: Husbands? 
Mrs: No, parrots. And now I've only three. 
Prof: Parrots!

Junk man: And it's a brown horse, eleven years old, and answers to the name of Dennis.

Love you Dad!

warning- short post

Well, my washer just peed all over the laundry room. 

...How about a blog post?



Moving on!

Here's how we welcomed in the new year-

Sparklers in the front yard! 

...For Brenda.  (Suzie preferred watching and Garret stood by the car confused)

This post is short.

Are you surprised?
