If you are an avid news junky like I am, things have gone horribly wrong in our nice little world lately! One can't turn on the television or pick up the newspaper these days without seeing murders near us or political investigations going on. Almost every day now there seems to be one or more murders in Nashville! This past month I read where it had trickled down towards Murfreesboro with a few murders at apartment complexes. Then, all the sudden our brave crime heroes here in our quiet neck of the woods, are catching escapees that had committed murder in another state. It's a long controversial conversation on political news as well! With all the investigations going on in Washington any little "tweet" causes a whole week of experts to examine the meaning of what they think plain spoken comments are all about.
It's all madness if you ask me! I think it's about time I tuned to the "National Geographic Channel" for awhile and stay off of my home page on the web for some sanity and to escape the political murdering headlines happening everywhere. Maybe, we should keep it simple and just talk about the weather! Oh wait, hurricane season has started and it's going to storm! Well well, at least my garden gets watered! Wait a minute, hard rain will murder my tomato plants!
If there is any good news out there to bring a little joy to us all let's hear it! One thing I do know is the 4th of July is almost here and I have a couple dinners to attend that weekend with friends and family. I think I'll take my mind off the world around me and get in the kitchen. That always seems to change my channel if you know what I mean! Besides, I have had a blackberry cobbler on my mind for awhile now, so it will definitely get made.
