Masterchef Season 5 Episode 6…Everyone loves a class act!

Masterchef Season 5 Episode 6
     It seems like June was one of the busiest and craziest months ever!  While I may have missed a few episode recaps I can assure you I have been watching Masterchef, and loving every episode.  My only complaint about this season is with the hour long format I feel like we don’t get some of the same background stories on the contestants that we used to, and that I definitely miss.
    
     Chloe and I curled up on the couch and put our feet (and paws) up, and settled down to enjoy our Masterchef!  The Top 16 Enter the Masterchef Kitchen, and prepare for their Mystery box challenge, lots of unmarked tin cans.

Loving My Masterchef! Season 5, Episode 2 The Beginning of the Feuds!

MASTERCHEF: L-R: Contestant Willie and Chef Ramsay on MASTERCHEF airing Monday, June 2 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. CR: Greg Gayne / FOX. Copyright 2014 / FOX.
     I love my Masterchef, seriously one of the highlights of my week!  I have to admit, last week I was disappointed by the lack of information that was given on the contestants.  I didn’t feel like I got to know that many of them.  Hopefully this this week is much better in that regards.  I haven’t even had a chance to decide who might be any of my favorites.  So my trusty dog Chloe and I are perfectly positioned to enjoy the show!

Its Back! Masterchef Season 5 Opening Night Recap…

Masterchef Season 5 is coming!!!

     I am loving the fact that Masterchef is back on!  I have my Dr Pepper and my feet up and I am ready to enjoy the season!  My trusty dog Chloe is ready for the season to begin as well!

     I have to say that I am not thrilled about the face that I don’t get to see the audition process this season.  That was always one of my favorite parts…sigh.  Maybe it will come back next season.  Oh well.

Sunday Blessings and Seasonal Photo a Day in May…

Ecclesiastes Quote
     Sundays are so cathartic.  It really is the recharge I need every week, its my chance to focus on what I have done and where I am headed in life. 

    Today’s photo prompt is the word seasonal, two very different things always come to mind when I think of that word.  I think of one of my favorite scriptures in Ecclesiastes, and I think of seasonal farmers markets.  Today as I sat in church I was reminded of some very distinct memories that marry both of those ideas.

Photo a Day in May, Rustic Saturday…

     Man I love Saturdays!  This Saturday could not be prettier, the weather is perfect and the sun is shining brightly.  Last weekend I actually worked both Saturday and Sunday so I am excited about this weekend!  Earlier this week I saw an advertisement for the Farm Fest.  It may be the country girl part of me, but I have always loved farms, and I have a special affinity for rusted old tractors.  They always have such character to them, they show the wear and tear of their service.  Today as I walked though the farm exploring I saw so many old vintage tractors, and honestly all of them looked like they had a story to tell.  This photo is of one of the favorite tractors I saw today, the rust covered this tractor, and paint peeling off, yet it almost looked like that was the only way this tractor should be, showing its battle scars of a life of hard work.

Photo a Day in May…All things Shiny!

     People are like stained  glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.

     Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

     I love all things sparkly and shiny and full of glitter.  There can never be enough glitter in life!  I love to see things sparkle and shine.  Sometimes however I feel that I myself lose my sparkle and shine.  Sometimes you just feel beaten down by certain things that happen.  Sometimes I just need to put on some sparkle and grin and bear it!

Photo a Day in May! Seared Ahi Tuna and some very RAW emotions…

Seared Ahi
     Its interesting that today’s prompt for my photo a day was RAW, cause that is so often exactly how I feel.  Lately my emotions have been feeling so raw and so stinging at times.  The divorce is still progressing and still drama.  I am definitely ready for that chapter to be over and closed with. 

     Last week was hard for me, and some of that is where my raw emotions come from.  Call me a horrible human being if you will, but I hate Mothers Day.
