Kitchen Challenge Day 4: Cook one of your grandmother’s recipes

It’s Friday. I’m actually surprised I can remember what day it is in the middle of this COVID19 haze we are all in. However, I remember for one main reason- it’s grocery delivery day at our house. After my last trip to Kroger, surrounded by everyone else that could not seem to keep their distance,Continue reading “Kitchen Challenge Day 4: Cook one of your grandmother’s recipes”

Whoooooo are you?

Figure out who you are and then do it on purpose. – Dolly Parton Such a fantastic quote.  It is tomorrow’s quote of the day for Tuesday in my planner.  I just recently watched the popular Netflix movie, Duplin’.  It was fantastic.  I’m not going to say much more because I hate spoilers but thisContinue reading “Whoooooo are you?”

Blueberry Crumble Pie with Shortbread Crust

I love blueberries….any way you fix them. Growing up, my Grammy made a lot of blueberry muffins, blueberry cobblers, and, occasionally, a blueberry pie. For quite a few summers in a row, one of my Uncle Mo’s good friends provided a steady supply of fresh blueberries.  Grammy always froze them and we had (almost) freshContinue reading “Blueberry Crumble Pie with Shortbread Crust”

Mommy Review Monday: Full Focus Planner

I have mentioned in a few of my previous posts that I use the Full Focus Planner.  I happened upon this wonderful thing on one of the many podcasts that I listen to.  It’s been wonderful for me. Here’s what I like about it: It’s black and non-discrete.  There’s a lot of flashy journals outContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Full Focus Planner”

Wellness Wednesday: Eating Healthy on the Road

I’m on the road a lot for work. Eating healthy on the road is hard. Extra hard when you love food and you use food as a way to keep you entertained and/or you have a 3-4 hour drive. Here’s what I’ve been doing lately to make it work: Pack my lunch and snacks when IContinue reading “Wellness Wednesday: Eating Healthy on the Road”

Sweet Saturday: In the Kitchen

Today was a great day with the girls. They love to “pay kitten” (aka Play Kitchen). They’re very creative and I only had to retrieve one chewed up plastic French fry from Kate’s mouth. I call that a success. People often ask if they get along well. And I always answer with “Eh.” Their personalitiesContinue reading “Sweet Saturday: In the Kitchen”

Thursday’s Thoughts:  Like riding a bike

From my Five-Minute Journal, today’s quote was from Albert Einstein: Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.  Although this morning was the first time I’d heard this quote, I think it’s been something that I’ve always subconsciously tried to use in my life when things are a challenge. Continue reading “Thursday’s Thoughts:  Like riding a bike”

Wellness Wednesday: 6 Reasons to Drink More Water & 6 Ways to Make it Happen 

Today, one of the things I aim to accomplish is to drink enough water. I live in a state of dehydration- most days running on coffee alone. Yes, I realize that this is terrible. So…I’m working on it. I know on the days that I have consumed the right amount I feel soooooo much better.Continue reading “Wellness Wednesday: 6 Reasons to Drink More Water & 6 Ways to Make it Happen “

Mommy Review Monday: Five-Minute Journal 

A few days back I posted about my new journey using The Five-Minute Journal and said I’d let you all know how it’s gone for 5 days- and now it’s been more than that but I decided to wait to post on Mommy Review Monday. I did make it the solid 5 days that it challenged me toContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Five-Minute Journal “

New Journey with the Five-Minute Journal 

I’m starting a new journey with the Five-Minute Journal. I’m nerdishly excited about it as I’m always looking for good self-improvement methods. This jumped out at me after listening to a pod cast (I hate that I can’t remember which one) with the authors/creators of the journal. They recognized a need- people need to remember theContinue reading “New Journey with the Five-Minute Journal “
