I Only Want My Arms Full of You

Jim Reeves  Still one of the best singers I know.
Life full of promise and disappointments
Life never knowing what road to take in a world
no longer believing in ethics morals and values.
Hard to decide, when even the straight,right road,
 is blocked, rained out, torn. No one said it would be easy
but this is when faith and hope in the one who matters
is what it's all about. His arms are always full of you.
I thought this recipe would be a good one. I found it a long time ago.
Don't think I put it up before but all these things are healthy for you.
Quinoa health bars
Prep time:  1 hour 10 mins
Total time:  1 hour 10 mins
Serves: 8
  • ¼ cup cooked quinoa
  • 6 dates
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ¼ cup almonds
  1. Puree the dates, almonds and quinoa in a food processor, pressing several times until you get a smooth paste.
  2. Transfer to a bowl, and add coconut oil, and tahini. Mix well with a spoon or clean hands until everything is completely incorporated.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  4. Wet your hands, take 2 tablespoons of the mixture, and form a bar. Place on a dish, and repeat with the rest.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2 more hours, and eat as desired. You can also put them in the freezer 2 hours before eating, for a firmer bar.
  6. If you would like a more chocolatey taste, add as much cacao powder to the mixture, as you like.

This morning I had a night mare.
I dreamed I saw my white rabbit in his aquarium.
A thin black one was running around in there with him.
As this got my attention I began a closer inspection and saw my Mom
sitting beside the cage holding a big fat white wet rabbit looking non too pleased.

Then I saw my Dad and he was thinking I would be happy but was a little concerned when he saw
I was looking in horror cause now I saw 6 more rabbits in the cage with mine.

I kept thinking they will kill him and then look how much work this will be to clean this aquarium
You can't keep 8 big rabbits in an aquarium even if it s a big one. The smell alone would kill them.
You need a cage with a grill bottom so it's easier to clean in the morning and I can't do all this work.

It was enough to make me jump out of bed and hear BBC news say the rebels gave up in Syria.
Then I went to the bathroom and opened the net to check this out and all it said was Obama finally
decided to help the rebels, Putin saying this is bad  and Brown in England saying if we don't help there will
be more world terrorism.

Well Putin wants to be Czar and dictator. We can see why he would be interested in the people to lose.

I kept thinking all the good people are dying and the bad ones no one kills.

I got up, made coffee and a nice breakfast of scrambled eggs mushrooms and onions for my husband
along with \French bread.
He won;t have lunch now being so full
And for my son I have boiled potatoes with turkey burgers with red peppers onion and garlic along with
fresh spinach with mango dressing.
Hope he likes it.

It seemed like a very full morning even though I did nothing special.

Rick - I love Gentleman Jim. Remember Distant Drums? That is a beautiful song. I think he touches every one who listens to him and that's what makes him so special.
So sad he died so young in a plane crash but then so many great people did back then when they flew in small planes in bad weather.
