The Pool Is Calling His Name

Since Christmas, Ben has asked me at least twice a week when we can go back to the pool. He has minimal concept of time and seasons, so I explained that we’ll return to the pool when it’s warm outside. Of course, I’ve probably confused him, since it’s 70 degrees one day and then 30 […]

Crock-Pot Wednesday #21

This one is a favorite of mine. I found it a few years ago in our church cookbook. It was contributed by a precious lady named Alison. She is more domestic than anyone I know. So it goes without saying she is an exceptional cook. (I’ll have to share her strawberry cake recipe sometime…YUM!!!) This […]


**Before reading this post, allow me to apologize for its length. I just kept typing and later realized this probably should have been done as two separate posts. Anyone who knows me well knows that I don’t like change. In fact, in all honesty, I am quite resistant to it. I’ve never been one to […]

I’ll Be In Trouble For This One

I make every effort not to cause harm or potential embarrassment to any of my extended family members on this blog. However, occasionally I cannot help but stray from my mission. Hence the very reason for today’s post. I just can’t help myself. I really, really tried to avoid this topic, but it kept coming […]

Bowl-Lickin’ Good

I believe I previously mentioned Walt’s love of pancakes. However, Walt now has a new love in the food arena…oatmeal (of all things). His entire face lights up when he sees his Mama removing the bowl from the microwave. And bless his sweet heart, he often cries when the bowl is empty, and I have […]

Crock-Pot Wednesday #20

It’s amazing what you can find on the world wide web these days. I had a pot roast in the freezer and thawed it overnight. When I got up this morning, I had no idea how it would be prepared. So, I did what any curious soul does…I googled “pot roast recipes,” and my word, […]

Pizza Picnic

Sometimes you just need to have a picnic, even if it is the dead of winter. Hence, the living room pizza picnic. No, it wasn’t sunny with a gentle breeze blowing. But is was a comfortable 72 degrees with a wonderful view of the Disney Channel!

Uganda 2008

My sweet friend, BooMama, has just completed a week-long visit to Uganda with a group of bloggers. In fact, I’m sure they would all appreciate your prayers as they make their journey home. I’ve been so touched as I’ve read various posts this past week from each of these folks. Each perspective was different, but […]

Nothing Says I Love You Like A Dirt Devil

Lately Walt has had an obsession with brooms & mops. In fact, one of his favorite places to play is in our laundry room, where all cleaning supplies are stored. Of course, I’m no dummy. I’m encouraging his love for all things related to household chores. I can use all the help I can get…even […]

Crock-Pot Wednesday #19

I know this recipe will be a familiar one. It seems lots of folks make this soup, and I realize there are several versions of it. I just like this one. It’s quick and easy. And it tastes yummy, particularly on a cold, February evening. (I think I found this recipe several years ago in […]
