Fat Tuesday Dinner is Served

Happy Mardi Gras! I found this picture of me and Brenda and posted it on Facebook this morning. I remember that day well, hanging out in Allentown on Fatย  Tuesday with not a care in the world that we had to work (go to school) the…

Find Your Happy

Flashes of insight will abound. Yes, yes they will. In my quiet happy floaty place—I hear the voice ‘write’ sometimes it’s a whisper, but usually it’s RIGHTINMYFACE as soon as I quiet all the chatter. Time to listen.

Jackdaw?

Holy blast from the past! Hmmm. How long has it been since I’ve heard Jackdaw? Pre-HWMMS for certain. Huzzah! (Tee hee—this post is from 2004. The day Pirate Mike emailed me after seeing me mention the band on the blog.)] So. Many. Memories. Um and for…

Oscar Humor, Librarian Style

Someone in the Platteville Library in Wisconsin has a great sense of humor… pic.twitter.com/3SU7GTgR5B โ€” Steve Hoffman (@SteveHoffmanTV) February 27, 2017 I still can’t even imagine what took the people in charge so long to realize this mistake, how many people gave their speeches before someone…

Fruit Smoothie Time

Trying this healthy living thing to start out the week. Premade fruit smoothies. No, nothing green added. Just kefir, strawberries, blueberries, bananas, pineapple and cranberry juice. And Vanilla Protein Shake Mix (which I was gifted by my bestie Cindy because she didn’t like it…holy expensive stuff…

Meal Planning Gone Rogue

Since I’ve been upping my wifey game this week, I spent sometime this morning on Pinterest browsing recipes to make for dinner, you know, I think they call it meal planning? Ha. Anyhow, I stumbled upon this glorious pin and my mouth started watering. Coulibiac of…

Yep. Mind of Our Puppies

Morning!

Morning. Welcome to Day #1 of my new normal. With HWMMS and I sharing one vehicle right now (the Mistress and the tractor don’t count…) I need to be in the office by 7am so HWMMS can get to his new place of employment by 8am.…

Zap.

The world is making my brain hurt today. Warning. It’s gonna be one of those duck and hide and sleep and leave me alone weekends. Yeppers. There’s this one “line” in my brain that keeps pulsing with a zap, sort of like pain, but not really,…

Oopsy: DirectTV

Back in December, I moved to the lowest tier package that DirectTV had to offer, it seemed our bill was just way too high for way too many channels that we never, ever watch. Oh and we removed that auto-bill payment step. Today I logged on…

Love is…

…being completely surprised by a thoughtful bouquet of red roses. We don’t really “do” Valentine’s Day. Not since the very, very first one in the beginning of our courtship when HWMMS was trying really hard to impress me…I mean when the love of my life surprised…

Verizon Unlimited Plan

HURRAH! Verizon is launching a new unlimited data plan. Here are the details. Ok, it’s not everything, but it’s something and it’s a start! Verizon’s new unlimited data plan just allowed us country living folk here at Weber Wonderland to save $94 on internet per month.…

Throwing Sheep

A dear soul just posted a simple, innocent status on her Facebook page today… “I miss the old days of Facebook… you know when we posted what we were eating, where we were and threw sheep at one another…” The comment thread rapidly turned into a…

Shrimp Bisque

Mmmmmmm. Holy moly. One of my most favorite decadent sides I enjoy with a fancy dinner is a luscious, creamy shrimp bisque. Why it has never, ever occurred to me to try to make it at home is beyond me. Perhaps I needed a ridiculously large…

Tape Dispenser

My sister-in-law gave this to me for Christmas. Tee hee. Love it so much. A Cassette Tape, Tape Dispenser! (And while this is not the exact one, I did find one on Amazon if you are so inclined to have one for yourself!) Also please notice…
