Menu Plan Monday 11-30-2015

Thanksgiving is over, and I hope each of yours was enjoyable. Now Christmas is just 4 weeks away. There is lots to fit into those weeks, but thankfully most of it is fun stuff. I worked on Christmas decorating over the weekend and got most of it done. How about you? Here is the week’s […]

Brownie Brittle

Thanks to Tryazon for providing the Brownie Bites to facilitate this party and post. Brownie Brittle: have you heard of it? I’ll admit I hadn’t, until I saw it on the site of Tryazon, a blogging company I work with. Then, as often happens, it was on my radar, and I spotted it on the […]

Book Chat November 2015

Book Chat book reviews contain affiliate links. One Step at a Time: A Young Marine’s Story of Courage, Hope and a New Life in the NFL isn’t my typical read, but it was recommended to me as a possible gift idea for my dad, who isn’t a big reader but who occasionally likes the random […]

Menu Plan Monday: Thanksgiving

Welcome to another Menu Plan Monday — the picture at the top shows the view out the front window yesterday. First snow of the season, and it was a big one (4 inches). It’s kind of early here for that much snow. Hopefully it’s not a sign of things to come this winter. Did you […]

Childhood Memories Friday: 4-H Meetings

You know what they say: a picture is worth 1000 words. So, today, how about a Childhood Memories Friday photo of a 4-H meeting, from around 1980, I would guess. These days, my girls go to 4-H meetings in the community room of a local fire station. But when I was in 4-H, we always […]

Save with the Chick-fil-A Calendar

I love Chick-fil-A. Good food, friendly service, clean restaurants — it’s just a fun place to get lunch, dinner, or even breakfast. If I have a complaint, though, it’s that Chick-fil-A can be a bit pricey. I’m always looking for ways to save, and Chick-fil-A has a great one: their calendar. If you’ve never purchased […]

Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: Review

Post contains affiliate links. My aunt recommended Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity to me, and I’d seen it around the web too. So, I checked it out from my library via kindle (so cool; checking out books without even leaving home) and began to read. Nabeel, the author, was a devout […]

Menu Plan Monday 11/16/2015

Happy Monday, to all of you! I hope it’s been a good week where you live. My middle daughter was inducted into National Honor Society at her school, and my youngest daughter’s band completed its marching season (finally), with a 12th place finish at Bands of America Grand Nationals, featuring bands from all over the […]

Childhood Memories Friday: Panty Hose

Recently, probably on Facebook, I saw a drawing of a pair of pantyhose with wording to the effect that they were a torture device for women. Seriously? I thought. I know that pantyhose are not currently “in,” but after many decades of wearing them, I’d hardly consider them the stuff of torture. This did lead […]
