  • Mr. Bill Jangles

    Thursday, September 11th, 2014

    A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself. Josh Billings, 19th Century humorist When Bill-The-Affenpinscher and his human mother, our daughter, moved in with us in February of 2007, he was incorrigible. His twelve pounds of incorrigibleness was filled with bites, barks, peeing, and consumption of socks, […]

  • Thanks for Listening

    Saturday, April 5th, 2014

                When you need to be distracted from life, what do you do? I prayed. I played casino games on FaceBook. I watched hockey while eating a gigantic bowl of ice cream. I made a double batch of chocolate chip cookie dough and froze a mess of little cookie balls. […]

  • Somedays You Need Extra Twinkle Lights

    Thursday, February 27th, 2014

    A busy week of work and play which is most times simultaneous. We prepared for our church small group or ‘village’ to those in the know, to be at the house, so there was the clearing of table tops, sanitizing the Billy spots and getting out the pans and pots to cook a mess of […]

  • Sharing Recipes

    Thursday, January 16th, 2014

    Cooking. Baking. Making. Eating. Sharing. I love all of that. Measuring. Pouring. Washing. Peeling. Chopping. Spoons – both wooden and metal. Glass bowls; big to small. Metal pans; rectangular, square, round. Pots and Lids. Hots and Colds. All of it. Recipes from books, magazines, the Internet, handwritten from friends and family. Sharing favorites. I’ve talked […]

  • If You’re Happy and You Know it…

    Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

    What makes you “happy”? With all the “Happy New Year” wishes for a better 2014, peace and harmony, losing the holiday pounds, abundant blessings and health being presented to us, I’ve been thinking about what makes us tick in the happiness department. For me, I felt extreme happiness last night when I took the dog […]

  • Keeping Ahead

    Sunday, September 1st, 2013

    This just about sums up how I’m feeling right now. If I could catch up with my head, I’d be grateful. My head is full of the stuff of my life. Jam-packed with multitasking projects, concern for my friends and family and too many dates and times. The last two include numbers; numbers of which […]

  • Blog Hopping with The Next Big Thing

    Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

    My friend Kathy Rhodes emailed me and asked if I wanted to be a part of a blog hop. Was this a new dance or some gimmick from FaceBook? She doesn’t usually fall for that stuff, so I read on to see what this “Next Big Thing” was all about. It’s for writer’s who blog. […]

  • Did You Ever…

    Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

    try to ignore the obvious? Not “obvious” like the three extra pounds that appeared on the scale which you chalked up to the extra salt you used last night on those french fries or the “obvious” fast food bag of empty wrappers left in the parking space you’d like to use at your favorite store? […]

  • Prayers for Parker Updates

    Friday, April 6th, 2012

    Parker Hayes – March 22, 2012 I am apologizing for slacking off on my blog. I have no excuse except the alien invasion where Pop-Tart shaped space junk food sucked my brain out of my head, but I’m too proud to talk about that. I will catch you up on Parker’s status starting with the […]

  • early morning reflections

    Thursday, January 26th, 2012

    12:45AM For this blog post I think I’d like to reflect on the past week before I lay me down to sleep. ‘Before I lay me down to sleep’? Now, where did that phrase come from? I’m going to have to investigate this prayer blast from the past. “Now I lay me down to sleep, […]
