Another gun and the blah continues

Goodness gracious! I need to get out of this frame of mind! Too much to do and no motivation to do it. I blame my work atmostphere. Lots of junk going on there that it can make anyone depressed (and paranoid...but we shan't go into all that!) And the weather. I also blame the yucky, dreary, gloomy days. Yep, work and weather, those I blame.

So another week has passed and nothing has been done. In fact, we had take out most of the week. Hardly any real foods going on in this house! I get so mad but it is my own fault so I just need to deal with it! I did manage to get my last shamrock shake in for the year yesterday. Some people celebrate St. Patty's Day with alcohol, I celebrate with milkshakes. To each their own. I did come across a homemade version of the shamrock shake once, I should dig it out of these days.

Oh, the gun. I almost forgot about the gun! It is actually a rifle. The husband's hunting rifle. He went up the road to another gun store to check out what they had and they had the one he was looking at back in January. He did not want to miss out on it a second time so he snagged it. He now has a mossberg maverick 30.06. I am excited. Now to find one for me...darn me being left handed!

blah kind of days and a new gun!

Ever have those?

The kind of days where you just are not motivated to do anything?

I have come upon some of those days....and I really do not like them!
I have things to do! I have things to make!

But, alas, here I sit.

I did manage to go buy a pistol with the man AND get my hunting rifle on order. Ya see, I am a lefty, and my right hand just is not very good with this ol arthritis so I had to special order my rifle to use with my left hand. I am excited (although I have no idea how to use it, clean it, etc). In probably a month, I will have a .243 rifle! The man got another .38 to add to the one he has already. Now he and I (or he and the boy) can go shooting at a range soon!

An interesting conversation was overheard by my man at the gun store today. One of the workers said to another worker that if the government keeps going the way it is, he believes that they may not be able to keep many guns on their shelves. I have noticed that they do have fewer guns then they had when we went there back in January. Interesting, very interesting....

For now, I am going to relax and think about what to do this coming week to get motivated!

lemon buttery sea scallops and spaghetti squash

I made this for dinner and it was good!! Here is the recipe!

Lemon buttery sea scallops and spaghetti squash

1 spaghetti squash
1/2 stick of butter
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 package (or about 10) wild caught sea scallops
Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning

-Pierce a spaghetti squash all over to avoid exploding!
-Put in an oven heated to 375 degrees for one hour.
-Remove from oven and let sit for about 15 minutes.
-While squash is sitting, melt butter in a pan.
-After butter is melted, add lemon juice and let it come to a boil.
-Add scallops to pan. When they begin to curl, turn once. (this normally only took about 3-4 minutes each side).
-When the scallops are still a little translucent in the center, remove the pan from heat. (the scallops will continue to cook some)
-While the scallops are cooking, cut the squash in half and remove the center seeds and guts. Throw them away.
-With the remaining part of the squash, take a fork and thread it onto a plate. All that will be left is the skin of the squash.
-Pour the scallops and juice over the spaghetti squash.
-Enjoy! This really only made enough for 3 of us so I would double as needed.
