My holidays must be off. First it was Christmas in July (or close enough), now it’s Thanksgiving in February. Well, the Christmas in July was my Pampered Chef Party. Thanksgiving was a deliberate delay. It was my hope I’d be able to have at least my mom over to break bread with us. Originally, before… Continue reading Thanksgiving in February

A Day of Discovery and Rediscovery
What a great day today turned out to be. My internal alarm clock went off at the normal time today. Woke up at 5:45 and couldn’t get back to sleep. Went ahead and got up, took care of the dog, and finished a book. Then finished the Costco list. After Costco, we went to a… Continue reading A Day of Discovery and Rediscovery
A Break from News Programs
Yesterday I realized I’d had enough of news programs for the moment. Regardless of whether it was on the TV or on the radio, all it does is raise my blood pressure, stress me out, or make me hopping mad. It just seems like we are still inundated more than necessary about the former guy.… Continue reading A Break from News Programs
Shaking My Head at Democratic Leaders
I just don’t get it. I’m wondering if I’m just too dense to understand or what I’m missing. My brain keeps going over and over the facts. President Biden is President. Nancy Pelosi is in charge of the House. Chuck Schumer is in charge of the Senate. Which, I believe that means, since Kamala Harris… Continue reading Shaking My Head at Democratic Leaders
My Pasta Grannies Cookbook Has Arrived!
If you’ve not been watching (bingeing) on Pasta Grannies videos on YouTube or their website, you are missing a true treat. You just can’t help but feel good while watching them. I stumbled upon their channel quite by accident. You know how you start following a link or do a search, and as you go… Continue reading My Pasta Grannies Cookbook Has Arrived!
What is a Christian Value in 2021?
The headline states 2021, but it is a question I’ve been pondering for a long number of years, but especially more so over the last four years. In watching elected officials, law enforcement, and religious leaders, I wonder if they have asked themselves this question in their respective roles. They call themselves Christian, but in… Continue reading What is a Christian Value in 2021?
Just Can’t Quit Him
After the Inauguration, how many of us thought we would be able to go a few days, or even a week, without hearing about the former guy? I thought a couple of days would be possible, a week would be icing on the cake. Alas, I don’t think I’ve been able to go even a… Continue reading Just Can’t Quit Him
Be Back Tomorrow
Sorry all. Nursing a nagging headache that won’t go away today. I’ll be back tomorrow.
I’ve been subscribing to different cooking and baking magazines over the years. Every once in a while a dinner recipe would catch my eye. We’d give it a try and the recipe would go off into the netherworld never to be seen or tried again. Recently that began to change. I was reading Southern Cast… Continue reading New Recipes
The common understanding is it takes 21 days to form a new habit. We all probably know this is a bit of a misnomer. A new habit might be formed in just a few days, and others take much much longer. Family dynamics are the same. Each of us in a family get placed in… Continue reading Habits
