Summertime...and the livin's easy, in theory

Today I was feeling pretty low. Rough week at work and feeling super tired and stressed and then came home to....well not much. I need some friends around and everyone is busy. On top of that I feel that I am having a little bit of a friend turnover which sucks. So I trucked myself over to a snow cone shack and ordered up my standard, a medium banana. To me snowcones mean summer. So I thought I would list a few things that usher in summer with me, you can add yours too.

*Snow cones! (I like the yellow ones the best)


*weird color nail polish

*tank tops

*putting away the lipstick

*putting in the AC- which I did by myself!

*changing to a light blanket on the bed instead of the quilt

What about you?

Banana Bread is so yummy!

I made this today, its the recipe I use now and let me tell you, it is AMAZING. It doesn't really even dry out! I am sending the recipe to a friend so I thought I would throw it in here too.

Best Banana Bread ~Shar's
1¼ hours 8 min prep

1/2 cup
1 cup
eggs, beaten
bananas, finely crushed
1 1/2 cups
1 teaspoon
baking soda
1/2 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon

Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs (I don't beat them first) and crushed bananas.

Combine well. Sift together flour, soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Add vanilla. Pour into greased and floured loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes. Keeps well, refrigerated. I also add walnuts, but you don't have to!

Shoes- my second love

I want to start off this entry with a fact and a story.

Fact: I own more than 30 pairs of shoes.


Once upon a time there was a girl living far from home and her family. Her summer vacation (a few months long) was to begin soon. Her family came to escourt her home. When arriving, the terrible mother of the girl (who really isn't terrible at all) gave the girl a shoe ration. The girl's hopes and dreams were dashed (though not really) when she was told that she could only carry a limited amount of her finest foot apparel home with her. Now, do not dismay for this girl has two very lovely and underestanding siblings. These siblings came to the young princess's rescue and without her knowledge smuggled a few of the precious gems in their own luggage. They had fought victoriously in the girls honor and against the evil (but not really evil) mother. The girl and her two siblings rejoiced in the shared victory and the girls feet were clad gloriously throughout the coming months... AND yes, my brothers are awesome.

Payless Shoes
Shoes from Cape Scott on Northern Vancouver Island

"Photo of Payless shoes. The shoe tree on Northern Vancouver Island is a landmark. People which made the trail to Cape Scott in Cape Scott Provincial Park hang there shoes afterwards on the Shoe Tree."~Pretty much amazing if you ask me, that's a big pile of shoes!

Here's another shoe picture. This ones more melancholy and if you allow it to will stir some emotions.

These are Shoes and prostheses found at Auschwitz Concentration camp, shoes and articles that were collected by the Nazi's during the Holocaust. Now it has become a tearful memorial of people past and souls lost due to ignorance and blind hearts.

Slackage- a significant period of slacking.

Kat, Feef- (most likely the only 2 who read my blog :) )

I apologize for the recent slacking. I am feeling inspired today and gonna get some stuff entered for your entertainment.

Loves, Me.
