Friday’s Delectable Dozen – More Pork


Yay for pork!!  The other white meat, right?   I confess, this week’s delectable dozen isn’t something that health enthusiasts will approve of.  This is NOT the other white meat part of pork.  It’s a sinful, blissful, tasty side, however, and I was drooling while typing this list up.  Everything is okay in moderation, including …

A few of my favorite Frederick Douglass quotes: (photo) “A little learning, indeed, may be a dangerous thing, but the want of learning is a calamity to any people.”     “I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to …

Orange Juice Concentrate – My Way (2 ingredients)


A few months ago, our local grocery store put oranges on sale in a major way.  Seriously, it was a 40-lb box for $3.99!   We don’t eat a lot of oranges at our house, although we should, but I could NOT pass up that deal.  Am I a woman, or what?  But I have …

5 Things 06/17


Ahh, another week of summer.  I gotta tell you, I’m LOVING it.  Time off work, my kids home…I know that by the time school starts again I’ll be glad to get back onto a schedule, but who can deny the joy of picking fresh raspberries for breakfast with the kiddos, and completing completely random goals …

I love these few quotes for prayer:   “If you can’t sleep – don’t count sheep, talk to the shepherd.” “When you can’t stand it, KNEEL.”

5 Things 47|74+4516/10


It’s June, right?   June, as in summer?   Just checking.  Cause I’m FREEZING.  We had a nice cold front come in, and it’s actually pretty pleasant, except when I’m sitting on my duff hanging on the computer.  Being a still, lazy lump doesn’t really get the blood pumping, and as a result, I’m cold. …
