Why I thank the Library of Congress

O, and Flickr!

Because through them, I can celebrate this celebratory month with you via pictures! (NO, I am not talking about my birth or my marriage!) I can celebrate women from our past who gave us a reason to celebrate!

Expect more to follow through the month!

Because of them, WE are identifiable by who we are and not just who we married! It's ok for us to be a Miss, Mrs, or Ms.

Suffragettes at capitol: Mrs. [Russell] McLennan, Mrs. Aletha Taft, Louise Bridges, Mrs. [Richard Coke] Burleson, Alberta Hill, F. Ragsdale (LOC)

They were wives and mothers

Some faces of great women!

Peanut Buttered Fish?

I know, it sounds too weird! But it is GOOD. Take mild white fish and bake it, steam it, poach it...make no difference. Take anywhere from 1/4 of a cup of the Coconut Peanut Butter and warm it in the microwave with a bit of cayanne or hot sauce or hot oil (depending on how hot you like it). Plate your fish and pour your warmed, spiced peanut butter sauce over it. We didn't salt or pepper the fish while cooking.

Thought about adding coconut but didn't have any.  Maybe next time..although it did taste rather perfect.

I need to table this

Now that I have my new wheelchair that goes up and down, this might be an option for us. We like darker woods. And the pricing is way better than the game table that I got before we got married (and DH hates)! 

OH...I found this while strolling through Dining Rooms Direct. Well, with all the talk in the blogging world, I had to check it out. And then, they wanted to be talked about. Win, Win. 

Seriously, I had to quit my investigation... so many, MANY sets of dinning room sets! Styles! Light wood, dark wood, glass! The mind swirls! I have to also think about getting my wheels under one which most folks don't have to think about. 

If you don't have to be quite so picky, but still are choosy, this might be a good place to start...or finish. Check Dining Rooms Direct out yourself! 

I want to be like this turtle if you ever flip out!

I love my niece, Lisa, for sharing this with me!
