Yes, We’re Still Alive & Kicking!!!

Sorry for the long delay in posting. My computer was “on the blink” most of last week, and then the kids and I headed out of town for a long weekend and just returned yesterday evening. Needless to say, I had to neglect the blog for awhile. We had a delightful weekend visiting with my […]

This One Definitely Gets An A+

Thanks to BooMama, I was able to get my hands on a copy of the upcoming release of the new Monk & Neagle CD. (It will be available Sept. 18th!) You can listen to a sample by clicking on their banner in my sidebar. I had honestly never heard of them until BooMama made the […]

Lemony Goodness

Have I mentioned how much I enjoy reading cookbooks? I do enjoy cooking, but I especially just love to read recipes. Fortunately, I receive two magazine subscriptions which contain some of the best recipes you’ve even seen or tasted. I love to try out new dishes on my family and let them give me feedback. […]


A couple of weeks ago I received a call from the school that Ben will be attending this fall. They politely informed me that he needed to have all of his immunizations completed before school starts in August. He just turned 4, and in my ignorance, I thought we didn’t have to worry about the […]

Pay It Forward!

Oh, I love this! It’s my very first giveaway. “What’s that, you say…a GIVEAWAY?” That’s correct. I think this is a fantastic idea: a “pay it forward” book giveaway. Check it out over at the following blog: Overwhelmed With Joy. Of course, if you post a comment on her blog before midnight Friday, you’ll qualify […]
