This weekend we went to Clovis, New Mexico, where my Mom and Step-Dad have a house and businesses.  My Mom had the fantastic idea of taking our train-obsessed little one to a bridge overlooking the biggest train yard I've ever seen!  Here are some of the pictures:

This train sounded his horn and WOW did we jump sky high!

I Done Gone and Done It

I opened the package of chocolate chips in the refrigerator.  This is not good, people.  I love stuffing handfuls of shredded mozzarella cheese into my mouth.  It makes me want to cry when avocados go bad.  They are so dang expensive and when they go bad it's so much yumminess in the trash.  Pioneer Woman is my hero. She makes money at two things I love:  photography and food.  I mean really.  Life must be rough for her. I'm a total heat wimp and now that I've been in the air conditioned house for 3 whole hours I'm ready for hot chocolate.  And is Fall her yet already?  Because I'm ready for peppermint chocolate coffee and chai tea lattes and my snow boots and sweaters.  Mozzarella cheese quesadillas are better than regular ones (with cheddar). Salmon is the only healthy thing I can think of that I'd eat in mass quantities right now.  Milk straight out of the carton tastes better than in a glass.  Unless oreo cookies are involved.  Now, where's that bag of chocolate chips gone off to?

Salt Shaker

My husband gave me great advice today. He told me to keep my salt shaker with me at all times. Take everything with a grain of salt and be prepared to be salt and light to everyone we interact with. Not everyone operates with Christ's love in their heart and an abundant mindset, and we are ALL human - those you lead and those who lead you. That's pretty good advice, I think.
