Pearl Jam Lyrics

Just Breath
Yes I understand that every life must end, aw huh,..
As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, aw huh,..
I’m a lucky man to count on both hands
The ones I love,..
Some folks just have one,
Others they got none, aw huh,..
Stay with me,..Let’s just breathe.
Practiced are my sins,
Never gonna let me win, aw huh,..
Under everything, just another human being, aw huh,..
Yeh, I don’t wanna hurt, there’s so much in this world
To make me bleed.
Stay with me,..You’re all I see.
Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t now I’m a fool you see,..
No one knows this more than me.
As I come clean.
I wonder everyday as I look upon your face, aw huh,..
Everything you gave
And nothing you would take, aw huh,..
Nothing you would take,..
Everything you gave.
Did I say that I need you?
Oh, Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t now I’m a fool you see,..
No one know this more than me.
As I come clean.
Nothing you would take,..everything you gave.
Hold me till I die,..
Meet you on the other side.

Dealing with my sister's loss, has been one of the hardest things I've had to face, my heart is broken, I'd rather ignore the pain when it comes, but I need to understand that this the hand that I was dealt, and I will face it with integrity the way she faced the last months of her life. Through her strength I will get strength.

What is it about Pinkberry???

After having a delicious lunch at Jakes Roadhouse with my husband and family, Chris & Kyle, we decided to stop by Pinkberry in downtown Monrovia, to see what all the fuss was about. And boy did I find out, not only is it a really cute little place, but it's delicious too! I had a small cup half of passion fruit & half of pomagranate frozen yogurt because I couldnt make up my mind of which one I liked better. So much better than I expected, so refreshing, yummy, I thoroughly enjoyed it! Definitely a good first time for me;)

Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Today is my mother's 55th birthday:) My sisters & I took her out to lunch at Molly's Cafe in Upland, then to Claremont to do a little bit of shopping:) It was nice to spend the day outdoors, the weather was perfect, and being that this has been such a hard month, I think we all needed it. My mother is such a strong woman and I admire her greatly. Love you mucho mama!!!

On the way back we stopped by the farmers market where I was able to get some fresh produce to make my honey some Caldo de Pollo (chicken soup) since he's been feeling a little under the weather.

Here's the recipe:

In a pot, 8-10 chicken drumsticks, 8-10 small red potatoes halved, handfull of green beans, 4-5 carrots chopped, 2 whole garlic cloves, 4 halves of corn on the cobb, 2 chopped zucchinies, handfull of cilantro, half head of cabbage chopped, 1-2 bay leaves, salt & pepper to taste cover with water and bring to a boil on high heat, taste for salt add if needed. Then lower to simmer and cover. Cook until vegetables are tender and chicken is cooked through.

Meanwhile, in a pan, med heat sweat minced garlic and half a white onion chopped for a few minutes, add 1 chicken buillion and stir in 1 1/2 cups of rice to brown. Stir in half a can of tomato sauce, and add 3 cups of water, cover and lower to simmer until almost done, then add fresh diced tomato and cilantro, then cover until done.

Serve soup over rice, with a wedge of lemon and some chili sauce to taste. Yummy! Enjoy;)

Have you ever seen the rain?

Someone told me long ago theres a calm before the storm,
I know; its been comin for some time.
When its over, so they say, itll rain a sunny day,
I know; shinin down like water.
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain
Comin down on a sunny day?
Yesterday, and days before, sun is cold and rain is hard,
I know; been that way for all my time.
til forever, on it goes through the circle, fast and slow,
I know; it cant stop, I wonder.

Creedence Clearwater Revival always reminded me of my father...
