What are your Dreams?


Sometimes in your career you are asked to write down your dreams of what you want out of your life. It could be anything and be anything that you would want to happen in your life. It is a good question to ponder on when you get the chance to see what you would want out of your life. What would one of your dreams be to accomplish in this world. Well you know sitting here thinking about that question you find some answers that you probably would not have thought about before because honestly most people are working paycheck to paycheck with no balance in their life.

You know while she was sitting here writing about her dreams it dawned on her that most of her dreams have come true maybe a little later than she had hoped but they did come true. One of her dreams was to finish college and that happened in 2012 with a master’s degree. Another dream was to have her own home that she could call her own without having people tell her what she could or could not do. Some place where her and her family could settle down and make a life of their own. Well that happened in 2013 which was a blessing in itself.

With all the good things happening to her recently she did not know whether or not to believe that good things could happen because they have always struggled to make ends meet no matter what they situation. However, that was also about to change with all the other good things that have happened in the last year she was not looking for anything else. The job that she has wanted was just around the corner all she had to do was be persisent and go for what she wanted. Becoming a manager was the best thing that could have happened because now she does not have to struggle to make ends meet.

Now, a year later and she still loves her job to no end although there are struggles as with anything in the world of business. However, you have to overcome those struggles and pick the things that you want to go your way. You cannot win every fight but you can win some of the fights. It is a struggle to find that happy medium within the workplace. However, when you find that happy medium you should not do anything to desturb the changes that are going on.

Eventually, she wants to get to that point on where she wants to be within the next few years. She know that she wants to move up within the company and she knows that it will be a challenge to get where she wants to be within the company but she is determined to learn and eventually acheive the desired outcome that she seeks within this company. She knows that if she does the right things and shows how much she cares about the company things will work out in her favor. It is worth the wait so that she can learn all she needs to know before taking that next step into the upper business world.

The World of Gardening 2016


Gardening is an art that you must have a passion for in order to reap the benefits of the things that you grow. This year we decided to have a bigger garden than previous years. Although, only one of the vegetables that we have planted did not do anything this year was our zucchini. What a shame because we were excited to have some zucchini to eat. Some of the things that we have planted this year were bush beans, squash, okra, eggplant, cilantro, dill, parsley, sage, tarragon, cherry tomatoes, tomatoes, onions, garlic, potatoes, cucumbers, watermelon, oregano, and rosemary. All these things have produced this year and we have a freezer full of vegetables, and herbs. Although some of the vegetables are still producing our squash is not because of the heat here in florida. Next, year we are going to use shade cloth to keep the sun from destroying our plants.

This has turned out to be a wonderful investment normally, potatoes take 110 days to mature but our red potatoes did not take as long. We ended up with a bunch of potatoes that we could not use all at the same time. We ended up giving some away to people that I work with because we had so many of them. We are still eating on them as we speak last night we made a pot roast and put some of the garlic in the roast and potatoes and onions around it. Quite amazing dinner with the fresh vegetables, and herbs.

Squash we have had lots of squash this year compared to last year and we have had it in a variety of ways. We tried a squash casserole but it did not turn out that well. We have fried it and put most of it in the freezer for later use. Although the hot weather here has made it die off faster than it should. However, we are planning on planting some more in the back away from the sun so that they have a chance to produce more squash for us to eat.

Bush beans produce quite a bit of beans or the short amount of time that they are in the ground. We have personally, put some in the freezer and cooked about three pots full of beans and we are planting more in a couple of days so that we get some more throughout the rest of the summer months. Here in florida you can have multiple gardens throughout the year and stock up on some of the most favorite foods that your family loves to eat.

Pepper’s we have a variety of pepper’s like we did last year and they are producing quite a few. Although we are using a dehydrator for some of the pepper’s and herbs that we have grown in our garden this year. We also can dehydrate some of the other vegetables however, they are not around long enough for us to steam them and get them ready for dehydrating.

A-z challenge meltdown


Unfortunately, I am not going to be able to finish this challenge as I am on the way to Tennessee.  With all the things that I have on my plate I thought that I would have the time to spend a little time and effort on this challenge. Although, I realize that it is not going to work out that way. I still plan to post some things just not everyday.

Healthy attitude

You know life can be hard, and throughout the day we can tend to eat whatever we want. Having a positive attitude about everything in your life can be hard. However, when you keep in mind the things that you want to accomplish with your life. There are so many things that I am trying to change about my life and one of them is trying to eat a little healthier. Each morning my daughter makes me a fruit juice and that is what I drink before breakfast, and before lunch if I eat lunch at all. I try to eat a healthy breakfast but sometimes that is hard to do with the current business that I work in.

Throughout the day I try to eat a few snacks so that I am not that hungry during the dinner hour. Watching what you eat is hard to do when your daughter knows how to cook so good. However, it must be done because in recent years I have gotten out of shape, and now am trying to get back to the way it was.

Choosing to have a healthier life is not bad at all as long as you are not trying to shove it down other’s. People are going to eat what they want without regard of the long term effects it will have on their life in the future. It is quite amazing how much people eat, and how much they throw out as well.

You have to be consistent and make a goal to achieve so that you will reach the desired outcome. You are doing this for yourself and no one else. You have to have the will and desire to make changes in your life because no one can help you but yourself.

Personally, I do not want to have to take pills for the rest of my life to keep everything in check. Starting now, watching what I eat, and the amount of exercise that I do are the most important things. Also, having a healthy attitude will help me achieve the desired outcome that I am searching for within my life.

Staying positive about everything in your life can change everything because no one can bring you down. You cannot let people get under your skin because you will be letting them win.

Gardening During the Summer


A2Z-BADGE [2016]

Gardening is so much fun and the benefits of gardening are something that you cannot let go of because of the amount of food that you get from your garden. We are looking forward to this year because we have already got most of our garden put in for the upcoming summer months. This year we are doing many things to fill our property with things that we can eat throughout the year.

Here are our raised beds that we have onions, garlic, sage, tarragon, dill, eggplant, oregano, tomatoes (soon), and cilantro. We are looking forward to watching them grow and produce. We will be putting up more pictures as we go along on this journey of our garden. It is going to look pretty when they all start growing and producing their leaves.

Squash is the best because you can do quite a few things with squash. Of course, it is going to be a while before they are ready but watching them grow is the best part of it all. This is just the start of our adventure with our garden. Throughout, the process we will be documenting the beauty of our garden when it finally takes off, and we know that it does not look that pretty right now.

Flower’s All Around


A2Z-BADGE [2016]

The best part of spring is watching the flower’s pop out into their beautiful blooms, and seeing the beautiful array of flower’s surrounding your yard. The spring is the most wonderful time of the year because it is not too hot, and not too cold. The beauty of the outside world is something that you cannot escape. It is a time to sit down and enjoy the beauty that the world has to offer.

These only bloom once a year and it is the beauty of watching the blooms pop out for the short time that they are around. They are beautiful to put around your house in the front side of your flower bed to enjoy while the bloom last, which is not long. However, they are pretty to look at throughout their lifespan.

Flower’s just bring some peace and serenity to yourself. You can literally just sit around admiring your flower’s all the time and get lost in the book that you are reading when you are surrounded by such beauty.

The beautiful Periwinkle’s that grow all around the yard create a beautiful array around your property. Although when you try to transplant them into different parts of your property they do not last. They eventually come back the following year but for the moment you should leave them where ever they come up.

Here you can take food coloring and add it to your water then it goes up the stems of the flower and create’s a beautiful outlie on the outside of the flower’s petals of this Wild Daisy.

Equations

In the midst, of homeschooling the children are learning more about equations. Although, teaching them can be interesting to see what they can get right with working with the equations. Most people do not believe that we use equations in everything that we do in our life. We use equations for a variety of things. Telling time, distant from one place to another, cooking in the kitchen, plotting out a garden, and many other things.

Of course, the equations that we are working on are simple. However, if you are good with math these are not challenging enough. One of the equations we are working on today is

(3x^2y^6)^7
3^7(x^2)^7 (y^6)^7
2,187x^14y^42

Simple for those who understand math equations however, when you are teaching math equations you have to do it step by step for the children to learn the process of finding their answer without the help of a calculator.

3a^n (a^n + a^n-1)
3a^n × a^n + 3a^n × a^n-1
3a^2n + 3a^2n-1

Math can be fun, and easy to learn when you have the right person teaching you the ropes of the equations. Enjoying math is not easy for most people because they think they are always going to get the wrong answer. However, when you second guess yourself you will always get the answer wrong because of the second guessing.

Determination to Succeed


A2Z-BADGE [2016]

The determination to succeed in life is something that many people in this world do not have. Most people only want to work what they want, and when they want. They are too busy having a life and not worried about what the future holds down the road. Throughout, the world some people want to succeed in everything that they do. They want to excel in their job, gardening, raising their children, and anything else that they do in life.

Sometimes, the road to success is hard to cope with however, people manage to make it through the hardest parts of their life. This only makes them stronger with every step that they take towards their success in their life. In order, to get where they want to be they have to make sacraficies that many people do not want to make because it will interfere with their plans or their life with their friends.

You have to plan for the future and you cannot do that without determination. You have to want to make something better for yourself, and your family so later on in your life you do not have to worry about anything but enjoying the rest of your life. The best part of your life is making sure that you stay determined to make your life the way that you want without the pressure of anyone else telling you cannot do anything. You will never be anything, and that you will always be a failure.

You cannot listen to these types of things because you will always look at those words that were said to you. When you are always being put down by anyone in your world you will never gain the confidance to make something of yourself. So for you to stay strong you have to keep telling yourself that you can do anything that you put your mind to and not worry about what other people say to you or about you.

When you listen to other people or you listen to the people that are always putting you down you will never achieve anything in your life until you stop the negativity around you and change the outcome that you want for your life. Throughout her life she has always been the time of person to just hang out with family . The few friends that she did have throughout her childhood became distant friends because as they grew older they did not have much in common anymore.

Becoming your own person, and sticking to the things that you want out of your life leaves you with the feeling of accomplishment because you have worked for everything that you want out of your life. No where in this world does it say that you must have friends, you must go out and party with these so-called friends that are nice to your face, and talk about you behind your back. No one needs that in their life. You have responsiblities to take care of your children, and family. Keep your job in check and make sure you are saving for the future.

Determination to make something of yourself and become self-sufficient in this world should be taught to everyone in school. By the time they have graduated they do not know much about the real world, and how cruel people can be within the world. People can be unkind, and treat people badly. They will critize everything that you do, and everything that you say. It does not matter if you are right and they are wrong. Becoming an adult is something that many people dread because you never catch a break from anything in the world.

She is determined to become a success no matter what. She has made it a priority in her life to make the best of what she has and work to wards making it better for everyone that is involved in her life.
