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

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.

Summertime Fun List – Update 1

A month ago (WHAT?!?  A MONTH AGO ALREADY?!?) I compiled a list of things I wanted to do this summer.  I have been on the road and/or sick nearly the whole month (I’m not exaggerating), but I HAVE accomplished a few things! Here’s my list and how I’ve done so far:  (Yes, some of these are more work than fun, but summertime is a great time to do inside work when you live in the Deep South!) Pantry:  Reorganize my…

Summertime Fun List 2017

Today is the summer solstice!  This day always makes me a little sad because the days will begin to get shorter, but today I shall focus on being HAPPY about summertime!  I’m joining up with some other bloggers to share our bucket/fun lists for this sunny season! I live near Savannah, Georgia, and y’all, it is HOT here!  My springtime fun list featured a lot of outdoor activities, but my summertime fun list includes a lot of indoor, stay-in-the-air-conditioning-so-we-don’t-have-a-heat-stroke goals….

I am currently… Baking:  shortbread!  I got a GREAT deal on some mini cookie cutters at World Market just before Easter, and I knew I just HAD to make shortbread to take to our family Easter gathering!  They turned out so stinking cute!
