Frozen in time: memories, root beer floats and brownies

A part of this title is a nod to a wonderful blogger at Life With The Top Down (http://fretym.wordpress.com/) and her post yesterday about a frozen ham.  Great post, but I digress. The post mentioned above talked about changes in life.  We all have them, we experience them daily for the most part.  Frequently,  weContinue reading “Frozen in time: memories, root beer floats and brownies”

The Bane Of My Existence

There are few things that really get to me.  Most times I am easy-going and can handle most things thrown at me.  At least, that is how I perceive myself, I may be way off in left field, but, don’t tell me otherwise.  I like living in the land of delusion.  The voices in my head andContinue reading “The Bane Of My Existence”

Under the quiet

A few days ago I posted a picture of the pond in my back yard.  The caption for the picture was from Psalm 23.  I would like to share a bit of background for the scripture, if you don’t mind. A few years ago when we were in the process of moving after being inContinue reading “Under the quiet”

Ramblings on Fathers…

Sunday is Father’s Day.  This year is a special one for our family, as we have a new father in our midst.  Granted, the baby is still a couple of weeks away in actually being here, but, nonetheless, we know he is a new Daddy.

Once Upon A Time…

All great stories begin with this line, “Once upon a time…”  and end with a happily ever after.  As a woman, I love these type of stories.  They make me smile and sigh.  There is usually a handsome prince and a beautiful princess involved and things are all wrapped up in a neat little package. Continue reading “Once Upon A Time…”

The Lost Art of Loyalty

Loyalty is the practice of being loyal.  The meaning of loyal, according to Webster’s is: faithful to a cause, ideal, custom, institution, or product .  Pretty straight forward, right? In the past few years I have noticed the decline of the act of being loyal.  If you don’t like your phone carrier, then switch to anotherContinue reading “The Lost Art of Loyalty”

First things first…

I haven’t taken the time lately to write many (or any, for that matter) posts.  I am determined to catch up with the random thoughts travelling swiftly across my brain. In April I was humbled beyond measure by the outpouring of encouragement and support from my fellow bloggers.  One of the gifts of this encouragementContinue reading “First things first…”
