Easter 2016

Today we enjoyed a lovely Easter, full of all the things that symbolize the day.   We started off our celebration of Easter by dressing up in our Easter clothes and attending church. The Easter Bunny brought a few little goodies while we were gone. We munched a quick appetizer . . . (No judging, please.)… Read more »

Waterkids

Easter Cupcakes in a Jar

I found this idea on Pinterest and thought “Oh, what a cute idea”!  It certainly wasn’t difficult, but it was oh-so-time-consuming!

I’m eager to change the season in my recipes, and I’m starting with some lighter, fresher tastes.  I’m also loading up on lots of fresh fruits for snacks to… Read more »

A Perfect Weekend Morning

Today I was blessed with a perfect morning. My sweet husband told me he was going to walk Bear and then feed all the animals for me, and that I should just keep sleeping. I really appreciated this as I haven’t slept much at all this past week. My hubby kissed me as he left,… Read more »

Another Day of Blessings

Blessings are all around us every day.  Sometimes it’s hard to see them.  But some days, it’s just plain hard to ignore them.  This was one of those days. Today I am thankful for a sunshiney, Spring-time day.  It’s a blessing in many ways. For the kitties basking in the sunshine . . . For the… Read more »

This Week’s Menu

Just what is it about weekends that makes me lose all my willpower?  I truly believe it’s all about the planning.  I plan well for my daily food for the weekdays, but often neglect to plan for the weekends.  This week I had fully planned for Friday’s dinner out to be an exception.  But even then, I… Read more »
