New Years Resolutions?




Well the time is upon us Blogland. Tis New Years Eve & time for those dreaded, oh no I'm never gonna keep em resolutions. Years ago when my kids were small I made the only New Years Resolution I have ever accomplished. And that was to never, ever make another New Years Resolution. Yes I have kept that one! I mean what is the sense in making a resolution that you are gonna either lose weight, get in shape, have the chin hairs lasered, get that mole removed, go back to school & get a degree....what ever, if you are too busy or what to keep the resolution? All that you accomplish is not fulfilling the goals you set for yourself so you end up kicking yourself in the butt & considering yourself a failure. Well, you are not failures. If you feel you must make a resolution make one like you will be the best person you can be for yourself & others. That one should be easy to keep unless you are a hardened criminal or a mass murderer & then I must ask you to stop hanging out at Wiccan Make Some Too. Just go easy on yourselves my friends. Keep the goals realistic for your daily lives & situations. Remember also all the cool & neat people you have met in Blogland. That should make you feel good!

 Happy 2011 Everyone!

Me The Broom & A Bucket Of Ice

 Warming up here some in sunny Florida my Blogland friends! It was only 54 degrees for the low last night & we should hit 70 degrees for the daytime temp. Yippee! I must confess, I was kinda mean to the Broom last night. Before I went to bed around 1:30am, I placed a large bucket of ice in the corner next to the Broom. He thought is was cold & did not try to rouse me from my bed until 6:30 this morning! Gonna have to do that again tonight because we are supposed to have warmer temps for a while. I'll just grab some ice from the ice machine at work & with the wave of an ice filled bucket, I will get to sleep in a bit tomorrow too! Okay, yes it is a little mean but hey, a girl has to have some fun too, right? Its like pay back time for all those early mornings that Broom had me flying through Blogland when I hadn't even had my coffee yet. Visited with some wickedly awesome peeps today! Check them out.

Chocolate Chip Cookies- Extend A Batch Version

 Howdy Hi Blogland from the frozen tundra of Florida.  Before I share my Extend A Batch secret with you I wanted to show all of you what the Florida landscape looks like when we have a freeze. It looks like this:



 & this:




 & of course, this:


 This is how people try to keep their plants alive during a freeze in Florida.
 Now, on to this:


 As you can see from the above photo, these chocolate chips cookies are not bursting with chocolate chips. I do not like them that way & do not make them that way. So that is how everyone eats them around here.


I follow the recipe on the back of the chocolate chip bag but I double everything except the amount of chocolate chips. I use one bag for a double batch. I know some if not all of you are going' "what is your problem"? Well in my opinion & yes you are all entitled to my opinion, making the single recipe with an entire bag of chocolate chips is a waste of time. There are too many chips in the cookies. You might as well just place a bowl of the chocolate chips on the counter & say, "Here are your chocolate chip cookies".  So, give it a shot my Blogland friends. You will be surprised. There are the "bursts" of chocolate yummyness & you also as an added bonus get to taste the cookie part itself! Yes, they are better this way. I also use the recipe & instead of using the chocolate chips, I add peanut butter. This makes an awesome peanut butter cookie. But again, try it yourself & let me know. 

Some pointers from me:
I melt my shortening & butter in the microwave. Not to the point of boiling but to the point of creamy. Make sure it is cool enough before adding the eggs cause nobody wants scrambled eggs in their cookies. If you do you are just weird! Having the shortening & butter like this makes the whole batter easy to mix. If you have a bum right arm like I do it is an added plus.


Beat your eggs before adding them to the shortening & butter mixture to save yourself from chasing those pesky yolks around the bowl.





Always make sure you pack down the brown sugar & brake up any clumps that are there before adding it to the mixture. It just makes sense. Enjoy your cookies!

Where Me & The Broom Went While Freezing

 Yup, yet another freezy day here in what is supposed to be sunny Florida my Blogland friends. Next time I hear somebody talk about Global Warming I'm gonna take a swipe at them with the Broom! I know the Broom will not mind being used for that as he is freezing too. My Broom woke me up early as usual so I got out of bed, opened the front door & he hopped outside only to hop right back in. He went over to the corner & I went back to bed for a few more hours. (the only good thing about this cold snap is the extra sleep I am able to get)  We stopped by some warm friendly places today to try & thaw out.

Me & The Broom Out Freezing In Blogland

 Oh Brrrrrr Blogland! The Broom & I were freezing today here in the Florida temperatures. Even my eager to go out Broom was a bit leery of heading out today. Had to wrap a dish towel around his handle to help keep him warm. Tried a scarf on him once but it kept whipping around & snapping me in the face. Ouch! We did not stay out too long today cause we were frozen! Found some nice places to stop by & warm up. Check em:

Ice In Florida!?!?!?! Ewwww!

 What has happened to my sunny Florida? Woke up this morning to ice on the windshields. Yuck! The Hubs went out & wrote ice in the ice. Look it.




Also on the driver's side window.





My poor Toyota....frozen!







I thought it was called Global Warming not Florida Freezing! Are the Powers That Be trying to prepare me for the frozen tundra of PA.? 
Oh, I so do not like this my Blogland friends. I know there are those of you dealing with snow up to your window sills but I am so not ready for this.
(thinking warm thoughts.....sandy beaches, palm trees, lizards)

Our outside unit froze up this morning because the heating systems down here are not meant for these temperatures. Had to wait for it to thaw some (that took a while) for the heat to work again. Oh alas, I have to go out in this cold today.
(are you feeling sorry for me? I hope so cause I feel sorry for me)

Where Me & The Heart Sick Broom Went Today

 My wayward Broom hath returned to me & off we go through Blogland visiting our friends. I was glad to see so many link parties up & running since some people are still doing the Christmas thing. I remember when my kids were small it seemed to last the entire time until New Years Eve. Off we go meeting friends old & new!

Facebook Games

Hello out there Blogland friends. Today I am on a mission to right some wrongs. Do you play Facebook games but are too afraid to ask your "cool" friends to be your neighbor? Are you stuck on a small parcel of land in Frontierville , in a cramped restaurant in Cafe World or a way too small bustling community in Cityville cause you need neighbors & friends to help you out but no one is answering your cries for help? Well we can band together my fellow Blogland Facebook game addicts.



 If your Frontierville land looks like mine with buildings piled up on top of each other, unfinished cause you can't get that level or window or membership to the Jackalope lodge.


 Or if your Cityville City looks like this & no one is answering your pleas for zoning permits or letting you develop your franchises.


Or if your  Cafe World restaurant is packed with unfinished crates & you can't make your restaurant bigger because you don't have the required amount of neighbors & you only want to ask each person in your Facebook friends list a gazillion times before you give up:

I Have A Plan!

 

 We can band together! Yes...we can help each other out. I don't care if I don't play your game, I will join in & become your neighbor so you can stop being backed up against that Facebook game wall. I can even direct others to you who do play the game you play so you can have more neighbors!
There are no "hidden fees" my friends or extended warranty to buy. We can do this together!

Just email me at wiccanmakesometoo@tampabay.rr.com & put the name of the Facebook game you need friends  for in the subject line. Also in your email I will need your name on Facebook so I can send the right person (you) a friends request. Also add if you would like to be connected with others who play your same game so you can get even more neighbors! I will be joining you in your game & become your neighbor so you can advance even if I don't play the game. I am in Mafia gangs in Mafia Wars even though it is not a game & I have a farm in Farmville too that I do not hang out at. But I do send things to my "neighbors" in those games when they need it & request it. I play just to help out my friends. We can band together & make Facebook games a fun place to be. Lets get this ball rolling people! 

So if you email me your info, look out for a friends request from Beth Adams (me) with a facebook picture that looks like this:

Have fun my friends!
