A Scrumptious Snack

My fantastic sister in law dropped off a delicious treat the other day. These savoury granola bars. What’s awesome is that she included the recipe with them. How thoughtful was that?  That is definitely an addition I am going to incorporate when I deliver yummy treats to loved ones, especially...

A Guided Drift

Have you ever been on a path – a road – a journey and you kept encountering road blocks? Or that path seemed to have lost its luster? The excitement was gone (or really… it never was there to begin with)?  You just may be on the wrong path – the...

A Wordle Wake-Up

There is a new #trend going around. Wordle. Have you tried it?  It’s via The New York Times link and it is a word game that you have 5 chances to complete.  As you may or may not know… I love puzzles so when my son first told me about this (and...

St Patrick's Day

My Pot Of Gold

St Patrick’s Day is tomorrow.  A day of luck. A day of green. A day of leprechauns. It is also a special day in our household. It’s my husband’s birthday.  Our house has been blessed with a pot of gold – my husband.   You’re the pot of gold at the end of...

An Open Book

When Your Heart Hurts

Have you ever gone through something that tears your heart open?  Or been close to someone who had to make a decision that caused them so much pain?  Or was that you who had to make a decision that caused yourself much pain?  Recently, our family went through a difficult decision – one...

role model, mentor

Look Up.. Way Up.

I remember as a child, being small and always having to physically look up to others.  I never thought I’d be big enough to look eye to eye someday. Now that I am, there are still those who I look up to (but not in the physical sense).  How about you?  Do you...

turkey noodle soup

A Savory Slow Cooked Soup

Do you have any go-to meals that you prepare from left-overs? Do you plan your week knowing what you can make from a previous meal?  I do.  I love making a chicken or turkey for a family dinner then using the left-overs for a savory slow cooked soup. Good soup is one...

Embrace The Waiting

The new year is here with a bang and sometimes, we expect all of our new dreams and goals to be granted… ‘just like that’.  In my first blog of the new year, I talked about doing a dream board. Writing down and creating a board full of your dreams, goals...
