Four Calling Birds!

Four days and counting. People who have known since this time last year that they would need gifts for this year’s Christmas are crowding stores shopping for whatever they think that special someone won’t realize is a last minute desperation gift. Hint, guys, now is a very, very bad time to try and save money….

Little Blue Wagon

So, for the last week or so, I’ve been looking for a collapsible wagon. Struck out at Tractor Supply and Marvins then couldn’t find a convertible hand truck at Wal-mart – I really, really need something to get Heavy Thing A to Place It’s Supposed to Be B. I used to be able to lift…

Larilee’s Graham Mints

Okay, this is the simplest cookie on the planet that doesn’t come straight out of the box. If you can use a microwave, you can do this! Also, they’re darn good! They must be – I never have to worry about carting them back home from the party! 😉 1 Box Graham Crackers 2 Bags…

No Snow in the Pines, Thanks

I am no longer capable of understanding why people like snow. Oh, I know that they do and I wish them all the best and all the snow they want – as long as they don’t live within five hundred miles of me. I live in Alabama for a reason – it’s NOT supposed to…

Okay, Now I Feel Worse

Oh, not feeling unwell – at least not more than usual. Heck, it was a good day – did most everything I’d intended. But I’m wondering about yesterday’s post – it sounds like I’m complaining. Okay, I am, a bit, but I was trying for the humor, too – that seems to have failed miserably….

Okay, I Get It

I’ve come to accept that I am disabled – not to like it, just acceptance. I can’t do things like I used to – heck, I can’t do things as well as I did seven months ago and I wasn’t doing great then! Sigh… But lately, my body seems intent on proving the point (it…

Debating

I enjoy a good debate – no, I never debate on FB because it’s anything but ‘good’ for debate. The problem is today, I got a little too caught up in it. Oh, not the deranged screaming (hey, I’ve done my share like anyone else) – no, I just wasted too much time on it…

Quick Cheese Grits

This one’s easy – if you can boil water and set a timer, you can do this. Quick Grits – this is just grits that have been partially pre-cooked then re-dried. It takes about five minutes to cook them – which is a lot faster than regular grits. I don’t notice any taste difference and…

Observations

I voted today in one of the nastiest senate races in my memory. I don’t mean just the last six weeks – this thing has been negative since the first day. My own, utterly unscientific, opinion is that the attack stance Strange took in his campaign was what cost him the primary and the runoff….

Justice

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about justice and injustice. Scripture makes it perfectly clear that God takes a dim view of injustice. Fairness, righteousness, honesty – these matter to God and should matter to us. We live in a world of fast information. We think we’re the only generation that lived in a culture…

Checking In

It snowed yesterday. This probably doesn’t come as a surprise to most of you, given the news reports I’m hearing now – but it surprised the heck out of me! Snow was a maybe but it’ll be light, wet, thawed – in other words, not gonna actually accumulate. Unfortunately, the clouds didn’t read the weather…

Microwaves and Pressure

Today we have the probably uninteresting, but I’m gonna do it anyway, discussion of my occasional inability to handle pressure at all. There, I said it. There are times I’d rather run than even attempt to deal with whatever it is. Okay, everyone does that occasionally – but I add my own personal comic touch…
