Kind of Blue........

Mornin, feeling a little bit blue this morning. Sometimes it's hard to be alone. Without a partner. Most of the time it is okay, but there are those moments. As you know I have been talking to Benny and I'm not sure it will ever go somewhere. He live across the bay from me and he hasn't come to meet me. It has been a month. He said recently he can't come rite now do to financial. But I'm not sure if that's so true. Hum! It's okay though cause I'm not really sure I want to be with anyone. Talking is okay but It's been three years almost four since I have lived with a man. And I have become accustom to my ways, being alone doing what ever I wish when I wish and never having to take care of someone. Me and Vee travel around. Home is too quite so we stay and then we go. Well a lot of the time it's because we have something to do and Mom drives us Or I drive and she comes along so make it easier for her we spend the nite at times. Plus my panic causes issues not to stay home alone..A man do I really want one in my life. I'm not really sure. Specially a worldly one. My focus for the last few years was studying the bible trying to learn more about God and apply it to my life. I get side tracked a lot. I have no excuse anymore to not. There's no man to stop me anymore. So why am I not perusing that??? Well I have a bible study every week over the phone. I just can't seem to get to Church. When I finally mustard up the courage that's the Sunday that Vee told me she tried to commit suicide again. That's been about a month ago..I haven't gotten there again. I just learned that my elderly bible teacher had a mini stroke. And now I'm worried for her..she is in her 80 an a amazing Lady who I have know since I was maybe five years old. Very pretty woman. So my heart is a little blue and I think my women things are making me emotionally crazy..This is when sometimes I think I need to be with a partner...then I think do I really want that... ???? WEll enough about that. Yesterday, I cooked some things and one of them which I had found on someones blog and sadly to say I can't remember where..It was really cute. She said she really couldn't cook well. But she went to house sit and she was looking through a cook book, it was either her Mom's house or Auntie. She found this recipe and made it..It was Sweet and Sour Meatballs... So I said to me..hum I always wanted to make these to..she said they turned out great and she was so proud that she finally made something really good..! It was a cute story. So I made them and she was rite they were a huge hit in Mom's house they cleaned the pan out...even my daughter in law came over to sample them.
So here is the recipe..I hope that you take the time to try it. It was amazing! Ok here we go again can't get the photo thing to work...I'm hating this more and more. seems to be a problem all the time now...Well here is the recipe with no picture..sorry
