Cinnamon Star Bread #bakealong

Cinnamon Star Bread #bakealong

One of my goals for this autumn was to do two of the King Arthur Flour bakealongs. Each month they post a recipe and invite folks to bake the recipe and then post a picture on social media. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, and I finally got in the kitchen and did it! The recipe for November was Cinnamon Star Bread, and it looked WAY too complicated! My mom taught me that I can cook anything…

Thinking About…Stopping for Grief

Thinking About…Stopping for Grief

You know how when someone dies everything should just stop? The world should just stop. We’re stunned with grief. Stop. Yet the sun shines; people buy groceries or go to work. It’s not right. My aunt died last week. I went to her funeral on Tuesday. We’re blessed in South Georgia to still have escorted funeral processions as family and friends move from the site of the funeral to the cemetery. Crisply dressed law enforcement officers stood at attention, wearing…

Autumn Adventures 2017

Autumn Adventures 2017

Ahhhh!  The first day of autumn!  We saw the first glimpses of autumn color a couple of weeks ago when we were in Asheville, North Carolina, and today here in Savannah we have a predicted high temperature of only 89 degrees!  Yes!  We’re headed in the right direction! It’s time to plan fun adventures for the new season, y’all!  I did this for spring and for summer, along with some bloggy friends of mine, and it’s been a lot of…

TBB Asks: Back-to-School This or That

This or That questionnaires can be a lot of fun, so I decided to link up with the ladies of The Blended Blog again for this month’s topic:  Back to School.   I’m giving answers based on way back when, when I was in school! 1. Did you love school or hate it?  Loved loved loved it.  Couldn’t wait to go back every year. 2.  Start school before or after Labor Day?  I think we usually started just before Labor Day…

Summertime Fun List – Update 2

Summertime Fun List – Update 2

Two months ago I created a list of things I wanted to do this summer.  One month ago I shared my first update, and now it’s time for me to evaluate how I did during the second month of this project! Pantry:  Reorganize my pantry. I’ve made a LOT of progress!  I originally planned to empty the whole thing then reload it, but I’ve ended up tackling one area at a time.  It looks a lot better!  I may still…

TBB Asks – August 2017

TBB Asks – August 2017

Today I’m having fun with The Blended Blog! Pool, lake, or ocean? Lake for kayaking.  Ocean for listening to the waves and just resting.  Pool on occasion for laying out and swimming. Camping, cottage, or hotel? Tent camping when it’s cool enough.  Cottage in the mountains in the fall.  Nice hotel anytime.

I know I say it every month, but I LOVE this link-up!  It’s fun to see how everyone interprets each month’s prompts and what they’re up to!  Here’s what I’m CURRENTLY…   snacking (on): Dark Salted Brown Butter Chocolate.  I discovered this chocolate bar at Publix yesterday, and it jumped into my cart all by itself.  I don’t usually eat chocolate, but this bar apparently thought I’d like it.  It’s right.
