A friend of mine recently returned from Florida, and it sparked a memory. It’s one of those classic memories guaranteed to make me laugh. In 2006, I took the kids to Disney World in Florida. We stayed at Disney’s All Star Musical Resort complete with restaurants/cafeterias and swimming pools. We of course visited all the… Continue reading The Love of a Brother
Who da thunk it! A National Celebration I can really get behind! Today, April 22nd, is known as National Jelly Bean Day! Well, at least in the United States…but I can dream…it is listed occasionally as a Canadian celebration apparently too, so…I’m gonna take up my banner and do my part. 😊 I LOVE jelly… Continue reading National Jelly Bean Day!
Wow…time flies! It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged, I know. It seems life happened. 😊 Ward’s Mom came for a 2-week visit, which was very lovely…although the weather was less than something to be desired. It basically rained for 2 weeks, with about 2 ½ days of sunshine where we could actually play in the… Continue reading High Tea
I was thinking about Traditions the other day and realized how many ‘traditions’ actually revolve around food. No wonder we in North America have such issues with weight, or unhealthy eating habits. And I, of course, followed along. I never considered myself a great baker, but my daughter on the other hand is an awesome… Continue reading Traditions
We have had just a little bit of rain over the past few weeks…but I’m not complaining, honest. If you read my Blog, The Cost of a Used Shovel, you will know we have had a lot of snow. A record amount of snow. And now, nowwww, we’ve had a lot of rain…and I can’t get… Continue reading Rain Showers: A Traveller’s Dream
I found this quote and subsequent information in a ‘Family Circle’ magazine. “Female pinecones are fatter than their male counterparts and have harder scales.” Ooooof course they are. I read this and I thought, well isn’t that just typical. And then I caught my sarcastic self and asked, ‘God, why would this be? What comparison… Continue reading In the Image…of a Pinecone
Warning: This post may contain large amounts of sarcasm. (That statement in itself is full of sarcasm). 'Nuff said. I went to Walmart and Superstore the other day and Holy Guacamole Batman was it busy. Normally I go early in the day to do errands because it is, well, not busy then. But this day… Continue reading Roller Derby
As a general rule I usually smile at people I don't know, compliment someone if it seems appropriate, talk to another Shopper, or to the Wait Staff, Security Guards, whomever. It drives my children crazy. Taking a page out of my friend Karen's book...'Now that I know something could embarrass them, I may tend to do it more.' Remember going with Morgan to… Continue reading Avoiding Eye Contact
You know those times when you should have stayed in bed? Stopped while you were ahead? Because sometimes...just sometimes...things don't always go as planned. In December it was day 2 of baking for me and I should have quit while I was ahead. I was making about the 5th batch of baking that day and I burnt the… Continue reading Batter…A New Hair Gel Trend?
