July 4th Holiday Weekend

My daddy made me a pie today.  He loves me, he really loves me.  This pie is the same type that he made when my mom told me I couldn't have a piece because my sister was coming the next day which prompted G to declare that my mom likes my sister better than me.  That has become a family joke between the four of us since dad stood up for me and said I could have a piece.

The other joke about this pie is that the recipe calls it a cake and underestimates the time to have it set by like 6 hours, and it makes two complete pies not one like the recipe says.  So the first time he made the cake/pie one of them was very very runny but very good.  The second pie set well because it set over night.  I wouldn't have the space in my fridge to make this pie so he sent one of them home with me.

My dad has become the cook in the family.  He makes key lime pies normally but I don't like those. My mom does though.  He tries lots of different recipes on lots of different foods.  He has started grilling his veggies instead of frying them.  He searches new ways to cook on the internet.  My mom was diagnosed with diabetes but she argues about that daily.  She gets so mad that he limits her sugar intake.  He is very disciplined and can quit things like sugar cold turkey.  My mom and I cannot. They are becoming a very funny couple with this whole Alzheimer's disease and now diabetes.

G got new shoes.  We had to have them shipped to us.  On Saturday when we took my mom out to eat we stopped by to get G some new shoes but due to the lack of the color she liked in her size she got them today.  She has talked non-stop for 45 minutes about these shoes.
We were given the afternoon off from work early. I came home and mowed so I have the whole weekend to hear G talk about her shoes.  She is currently driving me crazy with all the words coming out of her mouth so fast and furious.  How am I going to handle this number of words for 3 days???  Just kidding.

She has analyzed her shoes, compared her shoes to her old ones, put them on, taken them off, and gotten my shoes to compare.  She has sniffed them, attempted to clean the souls with a wipe, and pressed them lovingly to her face describing the feel of the curve on her cheek.  For 45 mins she has gone on and on about these shoes.

In re-payment for these shoes, which by the way are women's 8 because of her wide foot, she is reading 20 books of the Bible for $5 a book.  Romans was first.  God said His Word would not return to Him void.  He will use her reading the Bible in her life at some point.

see the white


Can you tell my favorite flowers are gladiolas?  I didn't know I had a white one.  It was in a patch that is being attacked by bugs so I picked it before it fully opened.  I set it with a bunch of red ones so when it fully opens I will take another picture of it.  And you can see my kitchen corner.  After painting the kitchen last year, it still makes me very very happy to go into it.

Tonight G is at a movie with her Potterhead friends.  Summer movie series is showing the prisoner of azkeban.  She wore her robe and her prisoner of azkeban shirt.  I am very glad they had a spare ticket.  Problem is I have to wait up for her to see if she is willing to spend the night or not.  The life of sacrifice of a mother.  I am really really sleepy though but she would be so mad if I went to sleep before I knew if she wanted me to come get her.

It feels like it is over 100 degrees outside and G wore her very heavy Griffindor robe.  I hope she isn't too terribly hot.  One of the mom's sent this to me.  G's very good friend dressed as Luna.  She makes a good Luna in real life too.
Anyway, I should have started a movie and may still have time. What a week. I have been active on twitter with political stuff and am not much on the blog for that since G would be affected here.  So maybe when I get my thoughts together I will give one long update particularly with my mom.  I have been reading  a bit at night.  I am reading Helen Keller's autobiography to G this summer.  I love free amazon books.

this makes me very very happy


Can't Sleep

It is very difficult to get to the computer these days.  G has, with her own money, purchased the PC version of Minecraft which means she can now join all the games that very smart people created for Minecraft people.  She isn't bad at playing the games either.

I have purchased her a coding product that was on sale.  My thought is that we will load the computer and all paraphernalia up for her to take to my dad's this summer and learn to code in Minecraft.  This whatever it was I bought gives her access to a server for her to work on her coding and she can invite other Minecraft friends to join her in the game.  There was an offer on educents.com that had the coding for minecraft cheaper than I had seen otherwise anyway.  It is a learn on your own with video though not a specific class.  I think she will do it.  She said she would.

Our culture is so depressing to me right now.  Such ridiculousness with definitions being changed with the wind or at the whim of whomever wishes to change them.  The whole Rachel Dolezal has shown the left for what it is, a movement completely built on irrational feelings not sense.

Between gender and race, race is truly the only social construct and gender is defined by genes.  Changing race just makes one look foolish.  Changing gender is just pitiful since scientifically it can't be done.  Oh sure, you can cut bits and bobs off or add pitiful ones on but in order to suppress the Y chromosome or the X chromosome an individual must take medication for the rest of his life that does harm to the individual.  Plus no man can ever be a woman who hasn't suffered monthly in the most with a cycle.  And that can not ever happen to a man on hormone suppression treatment to live like a woman.  Truly it is an illness much like anorexia or bulimia where the person's mind tells them something other than the person's reality.  This Jenner person is not someone we should be celebrating but getting help for.

This attempt of the left to force everyone to believe one way over common sense, over reality, is really fascist.  Not unlike the Nazi party in Germany forcing the population to see and believe wrong ideas about Jewish people and punishing the wrong thinkers as well as the Jewish people.

Back to race, the color of one's skin is only determined by the pigment in the body.  It was people who congregated together based on skin color or forced people of like skin color to congregate together either by force like slavery or by welfare programs like section 8 housing or via school segregation.  Of course God Himself separated the human race at the tower of Babel by language to stop their pride in attempting to replace God.  He at that time in history didn't want man to congregate in one place.  We are all of the human race designed individually by God.  He doesn't make mistakes but He does allow human will to rule at time for disastrous effects.    

So if Rachel Dolezal feels like she identifies with a culture of black people let her be.  Yes she lied to benefit herself but those benefits wouldn't have been possible had white politicians not thought black people were so needy and helpless that laws had to be enacted in order for black folks to survive and live.  I mean think about what those laws truly say about minority groups and only some minority groups and within certain minority groups only those from certain countries, Cuban Americans aren't considered to be  Hispanic enough for liberals.  Asians aren't considered minority in certain situations like college entrance.   Harvard is currently being sued over their practice of discrimination of Asians.  It is in the news right now.

Those laws claim some people based on skin color can't make a life on their abilities and need a hand up.  Non-discrimination laws will discriminate against someone and the law determines who it will be based on skin color.  And I am not ignorant of history.  I know blacks have historically been forced to segregate and mistreated based on skin color which I am saying is wrong and is always wrong (the social construct strikes again).  Skin pigmentation should never have defined and should never define a person or cause one group to treat another group wrong.

But see how far we have come?  This country elected not once but twice a black president solely because he was black not based on his abilities or character because he sure is the worst president since the civil war.  And I disagree with him only based on his poor character and his fundamental transformation of our country not his skin color.  Race relations are worse now because this administration plays races against each other (social construct).  He seems to want a race war and I am very afraid of the reason why he wants one.

Anyway, between that weirdness and the courts trying to throw away 5000 or more years of what marriage means and the rise of IS*S (I want none of those stopping by here) our country couldn't be in more of a mess, but by all means lets discuss gender and race and let liberals tell us exactly how to think or speak of it.  From now on I think I will identify as a bright blue unicorn who goes by the name Star.  Don't try to change me.

Saturday morning

Playing games on her phone, dressed in her Hogwarts robe, watching Harry Potter movies all while sitting in a box.  So much fun to be 11.
