HELP SAVE ENDANGERED CUTENESS!

Go to the Chase Community Giving Facebook page and vote for the Humanity Fund. They have a chance to receive $250,000 to help care for thousands of homeless animals around the world. YOU HAVE UNTIL SEPTEMBER 19TH TO VOTE!

The Harmony Fund is on a singular mission to rescue the animals others deem “unreachable”. We have assembled 25 of the most effective and down-right courageous animal protection programs on the planet with the aim of bringing peace to places once absent of hope. Right now we are gearing up for winter and shoring up resources to help rescue teams take animals off the streets in some of the coldest places on earth. We would be honored to have your vote today.

Here are some pictures of adorableness to get you in the mood to vote:

COOKING APPETIZERS FROM ROYS

I took a cooking class at Roy’s Hawaiian Restaurant in Pasadena this past weekend. I LOVE Roy’s. It’s one of my favorite restaurants. I was so excited I just kept grinning before class started. We made appetizers at this class. It was my first cooking class at Roy’s, but I’ll definitely take classes there in the future.

This is an acorn squash salad with arugula and pomegranate seeds with a pomegranate dressing. It was really good. It’s vegetarian, and if you brown the squash with olive oil instead of butter it can be vegan.

Here’s a chicken curry salad with apples and mango. I usually don’t like putting fruit with meat, but it was really good. finely diced chicken, apples, and mango, with curry mayonnaise. Yum!

Scallop ceviche. I didn’t try this because I don’t like scallops or avocado.

Here’s some shrimp lumpia (egg rolls) with bean sprouts and diced veggies. They were really good. The sous chef made a sweet and spicy chili sauce to go with them. I wish I had the recipe for that.

Here’s some of Roy’s famous short ribs. We didn’t cook these, because it takes a long time to make, but the sous chef teaching the class made some plus some steamed veggies so we could eat them for lunch along with our appetizers.

HURRAY FOR BOOK OF MORMON THE MUSICAL!!

Hurray! I just bought tickets to see the Book of Mormon when it comes to Los Angeles in the Fall! This will be the second time I see it, because I saw it when I was in New York at the¬†Eugene O’Neill Theater. I had a big stupid grin on my face the entire time. This time I’m going with my husband, I hope he likes it as much as I do!

HURRAY FOR COFFEE!

I got one of my presents early this year! Appelina and her man JB got me my very own coffee dripper! I’ve already used it three times. It’s very pretty.

 

And do you know what makes a great cup of coffee even better? Peppermint Mocha Kahlua! Hurray!

IT’S A NEW ZELDA OMG!!!!!!

OH MY GOD A NEW ZELDA GAME IS COMING OUT ON SUNDAY AND I JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT IT NOW!!!!!! HOW CAN I BE SO OUT OF THE LOOP???

Needless to say I just pre-ordered the deluxe bundle that comes with:

  • A gold* Wii Remote Plus controller
  • A special music CD featuring orchestral arrangements of select songs that will be performed at The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Plus, so I don’t miss a single microscopic side quest, I ordered the special collector’s addition strategy guide!

 

It should all be here after Thanksgiving because I got the cheap shipping option. And then nobody will every hear from me again because my brain will be in Hyrule.

HURRAY!

UTAH – A ROOM WITH A VIEW

I loved our room in Park City. We were staying at the Snowflower Resort, which is one of those condos/timeshare/hotel deals. I had won two nights there at a silent auction. It was very cute, and I will show pictures of the interior later. But for now, I must tell you of the view from our balcony and master bedroom. Shall I let the pictures speak for themselves? I think I shall.

YES!! It is a cemetery! And upon check-in at the resort I asked the ski dude working behind the desk if it was haunted, and he said “Oh yeah.” Although we did not experience any hauntings. If my mother-in-law found out about this she would probably freak out saying I was inviting things to come back with us.

This is the Glenwood Cemetery, a place filled with history, as well as miners, immigrants, and members of fraternal organizations (aka secret societies). It’s a neat place to go and learn about local history. Here is a tour.

the front gates

right after entering the gates you cross a small stream. is this intentional since some people believe that spirits can’t cross moving water? hmmm.

remember friends as you pass by, as you are now so was I; as I am now, you will be, prepare for death and follow me.

no pain, no grief, no anxious fear, can reach the peaceful sleeper here. an 8-year-old child’s grave. a large amount of the graves were for children 10-years old and younger. winter births and various diseases meant high infant/child mortality rates. very sad.

a grave with a seal of a fraternal society, although I’m not sure which.

a grave of a Woodman of the World, one of the fraternal organizations, who often used logs as part of their grave stones.

a kitty hunting in the cemetery, probably lives at one of the condos. i like cemetery critters.

broken fence – no stream to prevent ghosties from following you home if you exit this way!

gates from the inside out
