it’s the happy little tidbits

I don't know why, but the other day I remembered how, in "the old days", it was so much fun to find a ten dollar bill that I had forgotten about in a pocket or a purse that I had not used in a while. I never carry cash anymore and always use my debit card. What an inconvenience it is when I need to pay with cash, 'cause then I usually need to stop by the bank first - the drive thru, of course, or when I have to write a check. Because of my "plastic money", I am

the excitement of january

It's January. Wow! So what have you been doing? Are you busy? Are you relaxing? Are you shivering? Are you shoveling? All of the above? None of the above? Oh, I have so much to chat about! I know that is no surprise, but fair warning...this post is a biggie. I keep adding to it. I love January. It's such an exciting moment to be at the very beginning of a fresh new year full of possibilities and unknowns. A few years ago, I ditched the New Year's resolutions and opted for a word or a thought that would guide

it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

When I first started writing this post to share with you, it was much closer to the beginning of December.

So, yes, my title is a little iffy because it should look a lot like Christmas now, but I'm still keeping it. In my world, we celebrate Christmas. And Christmas needs snow. And coldness. That's because I have always lived in a northern seasonal part of the world, aside from my first six months of life spent

the turkey club predicament

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. We're still eating some delicious leftovers and I found myself in a turkey club predicament today. Now that my "Happy Moments" coloring book for big people is published and for sale on Amazon, to start, (my happy plug), I can turn my attention back to creating my cookbook. One of the ideas I am currently working on sharing in my cookbook is for Turkey Day leftovers because I wouldn't dream of messing with your Turkey Day meal traditions. Here's my predicament... A few weeks ago I had some dental work performed. Nothing

my thankful moments

Happy Thanksgiving my favorite people! It's the eve of Thanksgiving as I start writing this post and I have made all of my foods for tomorrow. It's just us, which is easy and not easy. We do not have to make a big deal out of getting ready and cleaning. Phew. My mop broke while I was mopping the kitchen floor so it's a good thing no one is coming and my house does not have to be clean. It would be a bonus, not a requirement for just us. But...if we want to taste all of the tastes that
