November 17, 2013, a day like any other. It was just a plain old Sunday morning. A regular, unremarkable, pleasant, Sunday morning. Our high school football team had defeated Normal U-High in the quarter final play-off games Saturday afternoon and we were looking forward to having a team…

Life’s a Trap

Life is a trap. We become ensnared by a trap of our own making. Once we are trapped we begin the struggle to free ourselves. Often this just drives us more deeply into the mess that has us trapped in the first place. Things begin mounting up on you. Too much to do, too much…

Morning Musing

I have a confession to make…I slept in today….until 6:00 a.m. Whew! I said it and I feel so guilty about it! That’s right, I feel guilty for sleeping in ONE whole hour. Since rising at the 6:00 a.m. I have been mentally berating myself for being so lazy! The truth of the matter is…

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It’s only 27 days until Halloween! Actually, it’s 26 days, 15 hours, 16 minutes and 8 seconds as I type. If you’ve followed this blog at all, you know that this is our families big holiday! We love the theatrics of it all. It is the most wonderful time of the year, as far as…

The Air Has a Teal Feel!

It’s the season of the pumpkin! Everywhere you look there’s pumpkin flavored coffees, pumpkin foods, pumpkins decorating porches and farm stands. Why, this weekend, the Pumpkin Capitol of the world, Morton, IL will be having their annual Pumpkin Festival! My Blue Moon pumpkins in my garden are coming along nicely too. Of course my favorite…

I Have Something to Teal You

The garden is beginning to put out a lot of delicious, healthy fruits and veggies. I’m delighted to have these yummy treats to put on the table, put up in jars and share with my neighbors and friends. But there is something else growing in my garden and it’s something that has me a whole…

Harvest Skillet!

I’m back. At least today. I’m not going to say anymore about that. What brings me back to the blog is this picture. I posted this to my facebook page this evening (yes, I’m one of THOSE people) and people started hitting that like and love button and commenting like crazy. Seems everyone had a…

Getting REAL

A young friend of mine just posted about his “love/hate” relationship with his body. He posted about how he feels bad about himself when he is heavier. How he has struggled with his weight and how he struggles with daily exercise and how he tells himself he is worth less (not worthless but not worth…

MIA

Look what I found on Pinterest! One might draw the conclusion that someone thinks I’m Missing. Well, maybe that someone has a point. It has been a while since I stopped by the table, hasn’t it? I don’t really know what to say. I’ve been pretty busy with all sorts of things. I’m starting my…

Monday Musing: In The Garden

I’ve been MIA from here again. I have a pretty good excuse, I think. I’ve been sick and I’ve been busy trying to start a new business, sewing aprons and little dresses. There’s been a awful lot of change happening around here too. A lot of upheaval, both positive and negative (yes, you can have…

What’s For Dinner?

“What’s for dinner?” A question I hear from any given member of this family¬†on any given day. One I’m expected to answer and I do, though sometimes that answer is “Food”. Of course, if I turn that conversation back on them and ask, “What would you like for dinner this week?” I am almost guaranteed…

What’s For Thread it Up Thursday Dinner Wednesday?

It’s been a mixed up, crazy, unseasonably warm week¬†around here. As you can probably guess, I am not complaining about the rain showers in January. It has also been one of those Murphy’s Law sort of weeks, but I’m happy to report, things are working out and I’m NOT giving up! I set the Instant…
