Since many cannot go out, I thought sharing 2 ingredient recipes would be helpful. Items already in our pantry.

I am sharing a recipe I have made twice so far that I found on YouTube.

Mix softened cream cheese with salsa.

Dip whatever you want! Tortilla chips, vegetables, potato chips, crackers, etc.

I even threw in a can of black beans.

I hope you like.

3-14-2020 We ALL will get through this, world crisis. ! Living in Vegas, it is REALLY hard, as more & more theaters, casinos, public places close down more, today. ALL live shows have been canceled. We are an entertainment destination. REALLY weird, staying home! I am such a social lady, hiking with friends &&&&. Our stores are the same as everyone, almost empty. Amazing the world's focus on this, now, rather than the elections & who is running our country. I think this is the terrorist, we don't need outside influences, right? & the 'trauma' hasn't even really started! I AM so very happy we still have internet. I heard some places have closed it down, for emergency personal only! I know I am going on & on, but YOU help me feel like all will be OK! IF we get no internet, just KNOW I am here sending you ALL good ((((((((vibes)))))) of health & happiness!Keep your sunny side up!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon . Thank you for being 'here'!

Hope you feel better soon!

emoticon 2-11-2020 Being an artist myself, I love seeing & appreciate everyone's art.
We make the marionettes for my shows, Mom & DH & me & several others over the years. (Starting in 1958) My favorite part is the costuming! (I think of my body as a blank canvas everyday, for what I might wear). It takes us about 9 months to make 1 from scratch. Our 'recipe' = Start with the idea (is it apart of a themed show, Circus, Jungle, Christmas, nature or just performing by it's self as in Barbra Streisand, Carol Burnett or Barry Manilow when we make a STAR, they get a copy, too) ) -sculpt-make cast- pour manikin rubber in cast-pull out & sand & paint & holes for eyes, mouth or anything moving, eyebrows, etc.- same process with hands, legs, feet, anything showing skin- wood bodies- airplane control out of lathed spindles- pad bodies- put 'underwear' over entire body- attach head, hands, legs, feet or make shoes (I have a 1920's Singer leather machine for this) - costume- stringing (I like stringing too, it is like stringing a guitar or other instrument, if a part moves, then it has a string!- It is a long process, but SO worth it! I am more of a performing artist, these days. I have 150 to play with.They are 'camera' ready & get redone about every 2 years depending upon how often they 'work'. Mom & team have made over 5,000 with us. We really don't need to make any more. Her last was JANii, I've shared photos, Joel Osteen and a few others. Mom is teaching about GODDESSES & women's Play shops, now, not performing. Here's a few photos












I'm not sure why I was inspired to share this today. Don't mean to bore you, just I am Slightly Off The Wall! & you all 'feel' like family! emoticon

emoticon 1-10-2020 Today is the first day, in 19 that feels normal. I actually hope it gets boring around here!!!! DH working at computer today, slowly, but surely. I'm still bringing him food & doing all the care-giving things.... but SO happy he is getting stronger, too! His small business needs to go on, it can't with out him. Luckily our clients are just now getting back into their offices. So we didn't miss too many requests. & now I'm able to go shopping & walk Lucy, without feeling like he may pass over, when I walk out the door. SO MUCH STRESS NOT KNOWING!!!!! I'm up 1.5# & ok with it. I KNOW it is stress related! Thank you all again, for your support.......couldn't have done it without you, NO REALLY! emoticon

emoticon 1-4-20 My DH is a little better today. Moving around a bit. Been intense around here, emoticon but I DO see a light emoticon emoticon coming into view. He goes to VA doctor on MONDAY, can't wait! Other odd situations going on, too. With my Mom. emoticon She's getting a new roomy.... YEAH! But not till Feb. Still trying to help where I can. With her being 91, she needs someone around, especially in evenings. The PERFECT long time friend lady is coming. emoticon Our pool broke, got fixed yesterday. emoticon still to cold to swim. LUCY emoticon limping today, not sure why, checking her out, too! All & all things seem calmer today. Still keeping VERY alert to DH. But hope to hike at the nature preserve, today. Sorry I haven't been reading your blogs &&&&, emoticon keeping focused on what I NEED to do. YOUR support mean the world emoticon to me, emoticon Please KNOW I am here for all of you, mainly in prayer, daily! emoticon emoticon

LUCY January 1-2020 looking for her 'dad' to come downstairs, he can't right now.

@MINNIE. THOSE LETTERS ARE MY FIRST, MIDDLE, AND LAST NAME (PBVH), and the last ones are my hubby's initials(CCVH). The name I wanted to use was already taken, so I decided to use our initials so I wouldn't ever forget my sign-in name!

You did GREAT to ride your bike for nearly an hour!!

emoticon 11-26-19 We are redoing our living room. emoticon De-cluttering, new TV. new stereo equipment, security cameras etc. Finally found the "GUY" . He will take away the old stuff, too! DH has HUGE speakers, almost 4 feet tall. Glad to let them go! LOT's to do before it all starts. DH hasn't done this since he moved in, 1992! He is adding "me" . I'll be able to feel apart of the decorating this time. YEAH! He was a bachelor for quite awhile! Also just found out we need a new pool motor. WOW! Expensive week, but will be lovely for the rest of the holidays!
I use to get rid of old things, cards etc. SO HAPPY I didn't burn our wedding photos! We were apart for 17 years & now back to playing again! But I DO need to purge lot's of old clutter.LIFE IS FABULOUS!!!!
Happy week to all!

11-2-19 Our 44th anniversary, emoticon yesterday was SO special. We had dinner on top of the world. It was perfect, (except I over ate) Lot's of walking & sight seeing. DH gave me 44 gas car fill ups. I gave him a detailed car cleaning for his car. It came out beautifully! We REALLY take good care of our cars, AND each other. We are still on our Honeymoon. Met in High school. Yes, we have our ups & downs, but try really hard at keeping our romance alive. Lot's of work, but worth it!

@SPARKLINGME176. You can do it with your terrific attitude. My hubby is joining me to make it easier for me. Of course he'll be done months before me as he only has 18# to lose! Still, his encouragement and support will help a great deal.

Yesterday I took DH in for his annual checkup. We love his doctor. He let's me come in & learn, too! He is where I found SP. Well, he could tell I had added weight & DH did too. I won't discuss DH situation here, not my business to share! But he said to me, that IF I don't let the extra weight go, I will be headed for MUCH more pain, as far as my joints go. Kinda, lose it or lose your life! emoticon THAT WAS A HUGE WAKE UP CALL FOR ME!!!! emoticon YIKES!!!!

So today I pulled out my SP goal list, Photos of me AT goal & measured myself for the first time in 11 months! My lunch today was a plate of yummy raw veggies & a teaspoon of Peanut Butter. Breakfast was oatmeal & a few nuts. I've eaten 600 cals so far today, but they are VERY energizing foods. When I go to eat unconsciously, it will be with a plate of raw veggies. I have planned the rest of the meals & snacks for the next couple days. I've joined a 22 day food challenge, to help me focus on REAL foods, not empty calories. I'm doing this, because my life depends upon it! THX for YOUR support, I couldn't do it with out you! emoticon

(at goal)

I wrote a new blog today, "I am so grateful for my amazing life!" check it out if you want! Here's some of it:

emoticon 6-27-19 Today is '1 of those days". emoticon A day I am SO grateful for my amazing life! emoticon I woke up when I wanted, hugged my DH emoticon the man of my dreams even after 50 years; walked our darling doggie emoticon , Lucy in the just cleaned park, with sprinklers on for us to play in; emoticon sat on our paradise deck, by the pool emoticon & had coffee & raspberry yogurt with walnuts; emoticon swam about 30 minutes; emoticon . emoticon I call this success. Success is when you get to do what you want to do, when you want to do it, with the finances to back you up. My goodness, I am happy to be alive, right now. Who wouldn't be? emoticon (Yes! I DO have bad times, but 75% of my life is just to my choosing! I am SO happy I thought LONG & HARD before I shared this SP blog, I know so many of you are having a hard time. BUT we can help each other, either way, right?) emoticon It has changed my life, forever! (On this my 2659 day of sparking + I received 100 bonus points for spinning the wheel today! emoticon How about you? emoticon

emoticon 4-15-19 Today, after work, I took courage in hand & went to the Gym, after healing knee! (It's been 255 days ago!) BUT I did it! Yeah for me!!!!!! I only played for 30 minutes..... but what fun I had! Just being VERY careful! Elliptical, stomach press, knee presses, biking etc. Just plain fun! I'll see how I feel tomorrow. I HAVE been walking ALLOT & Pilates, but different mussels! Plus seeing people there of all ages, getting their groove on!

Heart doctor finally released me to fo exercise after 6 months. Sunday i asked the church to pray for a favorable outcome without surgery. They laid hands on me. When the doctor did the ultrasound he was amazed. He said there is no damage but the ultrasound from last month showed that the heart was deteriorating. I told him ain't God grand and the power of prayer.

I haven't been as active as I should. I have been dealing with heart related issues since February. I have had two stress texts and found out that the top of the heart is deteriorating. So in four weeks I go in for a heart Cath to see what the damage is.

I have been told no exercise except for walking 5 minutes a day.

Since last August I have lost 54 pounds while working out with a trainer twice a week.

But now I fear that I might gain some of that back.

I hope whoever reads this has an awesome week.
