Beyond Yum!



This is Burger TeX.   This place is located on airport Blvd.  So if you ever have the chance to stop by, I highly recommend.  My first time here, my friend And I came here for her Birthday.  The burgers were oh so delicious.  I had an order of fried pickles, let me just say.  Omg!  So delicious.  Crispy batter dipped and juicy on the inside.  Whoa a! The burger was so incredibly yummo!  Two thumbs. And a toe up delicious.

Day 249:

Today I am…  Relaxed!  My day off, and I have already done apartment chores, and now just going to relax for the rest of the day.  I did think about heading out to the Harry Ransom Center, but that can wait for another day or weekend off.  Today it is just going to be me and sweet, sweet, netflix.  I pulled up a recipe for bbq baked chicken wings, and I will be trying that out tomorrow, as well as one for mac and cheese, not out of the box, but using velveeta cheese.  I do like experimenting with throwing food together to see how it all comes out.  I get an idea in my head, and I try to execute it as best as I can, to see and taste the results.  I bought some corkscrew pasta instead of the elbow noodles, this should be some kind of turn out.  To be continued.

Not for sure if my sister and nephew will be down here next weekend, still haven’t gotten a strait one, we shall see.  My mom was going to come with my dad, but with all the stuff going on with his eye, she will not be coming down, so if they do happen, they will just have to do it on their own.  If they do happen to come down, I can at least show my nephew some new places down town, His birthday is on the 20th, and he will be 22 years old, so it would be good to see him.  To be continued.

Welp, I am on season 3 of Continuum, and I shall watch it all today, so with that being said, I better be off, and here’s to a great weekend my friends and reader’s.  May it be a great one for you.

Today I am…  Relaxed!

Day 153:

Today I am…  On a Spree!  A cleaning spree that is, today I cleaned bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room, moped and vacuumed, wiped down counters and tables.  Clean was the scene of the day.  I just don’t want to have to do a lot of cleaning when my mom comes in on Wednesday.  Can’t wait to see her, we will be going to the Auto show on Saturday, but during the week, we will do little things here and there.

I have enjoyed my two days off, yesterday went over to friends home to celebrate mother’s day and to also celebrate one of her son’s birthdays, it was really nice, there was food, lots of her family, and of course their kids, and desserts, there were cupcakes, a big cookie cake, brownies, fruit, and drinks, of the non alcohol kinds, and of the alcohol kind, in fact I had a couple of the adult beverages.  Yummy.  I have standing invites to her house, whenever I feel like it, it is so nice to have that going on.

Even though it has been nice, and I got to rest, it is time to head back to work, I have only three days this week, since I will have the weekend off.  So need to make the most of the days I do have for this week.  At least they will be morning shifts, so that makes me smile.  Hope that you all had a great weekend, and the start of your working week was a good start.  Until the next time.

Today I am…  On a Spree!

On her 63rd Birthday…

We had fun, we enjoyed the day, I bought her what she wanted, we went to the Barton Creek Mall, she loves that mall, we had lunch, and enjoyed one another’s’ company.  It was a great time had by both.  I love my mom, and I love when she comes to visit me, there is enough space between us; that we are not underneath one another like it has been, and there is enough time away to miss one another and enjoy the visit when she does come down.  Yes, she still wants me indoors before dark, but like I have told her, It can not always be that way, hey, I work at night some times, and I also like to spend time out.   Something I don’t think she will ever get used to, but hey C’est La Vie right!

I will be seeing her next month of course, she will be coming back down, for a little business, and of course to see me, so all is good in my land.  Still searching for jobs, but that too is all good.  My goodness, time sure is rushing by, before you blink it will be the new year.  So many changes going on in my life, so many changes coming on so fast, but that’s pretty much how it goes.  Change does not care if you are ready for it.  I’ve made it this far, of course I couldn’t have without God on board.  All things are possible with God, and I know that I am going to have what I say I have.  I have been feeling down.  This passes with each prayer I pray, I do feel the growth inside, and I want to continue to grow in the Lord’s Strength and Grace.  Time to get real with life.

There is so much that I need to do, things need to be prioritized.  furniture for the apartment, starting with a bed, then work my way across, internet for the computer, then a television with cable, a new camera, so that I can really start putting into place some photography lessons, and going out shooting with my friend, who shoots awesome portraits.  I know I have just been dragging my feet, and it is not going to do.  I  need to get up and be proactive for and in my life, all this talk is just cheap, and it has got to stop.  No more feeling down, and sorry and teary and all that jazz, time to get my shit together and get on with it.  Responsibility for my life.   Nuff said.

Life is what you make of it….  Let me start making mine!


“Come on down”… NOT!

Does not look like I will be coming on down, I won’t be the next contestant on “The Price is Right Live”.  Today at the long center, the price is right live is going on, I was really hoping to score some free tickets, but no go, and well 29 dollars and up to get into it, is definitely not on my budget at this time, perhaps next time when I have more to spend.  I have always dreamed about being on that show.  I even have the day off from work today.  Oh well, perhaps next year if the chance arises.  For today it is filling out job apps at the library, and trying to stay dry.  It’s all good though, it’s all good.

My mom will be down next week, to spend her birthday with me, and I am trying to put together something really special for her and I.  I do believe that Chuy’s and The Cheesecake Factory will definitely be on that list, as for other entertainment, perhaps going to see the new Thor movie while she is down.  Either way I am going to fix up something very special for her while she is down visiting; since she has continued to do so much for me.  I want her 63rd birthday to be a very special one.

It is getting pretty cool now, breaking out the jacket seems standard, and before you know it, will probably have to break out the big coat.  Also it’s beginning to look a lot like…  Yes!  For me anyway, time to get that Christmas Tree, and get to decorating it, heck, I am going to do it up.  I know your thinking, um, Thanks giving is not even here yet, well for me I am going to get a jump on the Christmas season.  That’s just the way I am, and I love it.  Stay tuned.

Well friends, looks like I really do need to head back home, before it starts to rain out.  Keep your day fun, and safe.  Until the next time, get out and enjoy if you can.
