GOOD MORNING! I had a great weekend!  I am so glad it is finally September and my favorite time of year is quickly approaching! 
Be sure and stop by to see what it's all about!

  • A big cup of coffee and then a homemade fruit smoothie (banana, pineapple, strawberry and cherries) before I go to the gym. 
  • Dr. appointments
  • Errands

Whatever strikes our fancy off the DVR.  I try not to plan this in advance and just go with the flow at least until the NEW Fall schedule starts for real.

Hot as usual! It's only supposed to be in the 90's with thunderstorms today but with monsoon season and the thunderstorms the humidity is really high and making it miserable.

I'm hoping to do a little photography this week to get caught up with some Instagrams and do a little quilting and finish a few older projects though I have yet to have a few minutes to myself LOL like that's going to happen.

As I combine all my old blogs into this new one I'm also keeping a list of those recipes that I cannot in good conscience bring over until I remake them and take some decent pictures LOL.  This week was Pepperoni Pizza Dip.

In the meantime I'm trying to concentrate on some football food for tailgating time which starts on Thursday.  Be sure and stop by to link up.
 Links are open!

Absolutely nothing!

Fed the local bunny my wilted lettuce.
And found this great corrugated tin dog.

Want to get a jump on holiday baking?  Make your drop cookie dough now.  Use a small ice cream scoop to form your balls of dough.  Place them on a cookie sheet and freeze for 30 minutes or so.  When dough is frozen Place the individual balls in a freezer bag.  Just thaw and bake when you're ready.

I'm finding that more and more of my favorite blogs are posting less and less, if at all, but I have found a few new ones that I've added to my feed.  Check out This Silly Girls Life.  They have some really beautiful food photography and interesting crafts and recipes.
Why do parents today not realize that they are raising the adults of tomorrow?  I was at out local discount store recently and 2 things really bothered me. 1) Why do they have to bring ALL the children shopping with them?  And 2) if they are going to bring them, why don't they pay attention and discipline them.  Many had been just turned loose to run rampant through the store. I spent the day being run into by kids pushing carts, throwing balls and running mindlessly.

Guidance as we work on the research on our new adventure and home search.  We are having so much fun just researching via the internet and can't wait until we do it in person.


  1. Great idea to make that cookie dough soon before the hectic holidays arrive!

  2. I love the idea of making the cookie dough ahead of time but I may have to figure out secret labels to keep the family from eating it all before I can make the cookies ;) I also like your bunny picture.

    1. Do what I do. I would wrap all he little balls in a sheet of butcher paper and make a neat little square that fit well in the Ziploc bag and then I labeled it FISH :D If my family ever really though about it, they'd know it was something good 'cuz I don't use frozen fish ever, but it has worked so far. I bet you could also label them Brussels sprouts with the same effect.


Thanks for stopping by. Please leave your ingredients for this recipe we call life!
