Wherever your Home for the Holidays is

Ahh finally a moment to breathe, sorta.  The big fundraising, birthday party everyone was fretting over  is but a distant memory.  
Shoes are now stored away, frocks are frocking on the hangers of the local dry cleaners and right when you think you're able to give the party fare a rest from your ever increasing waistline October then turns a corner to November and it's time to drag out the pots and pans.  
Turkey day for some is walking in the door sitting down and eating but for other its 's standing for hours peeling, dicing, stirring and whirring in the kitchen as the steam from all the dishes replaces next weeks spa treatment package, but it makes it all worth it. Especially when the
 tryptophan kicks in and you get a few moments of shut eye.


If you've never seen Home for Holidays, I'd say it's your typical movie/ family dinner with all the antics thrown in. 

 Some of you are lucky enough not to have this kind of drama in your life, good for you. 
But in every family, there is always something to contend with, no matter what it is. 
So just stop and take a moment to be thankful, that's all matters  because we are not promised tomorrow let alone  that piece of pumpkin pie later on in the evening you've set your sights on and already know you won't have room for.

Happy Turkey Day

A Wearing Affair

This has been posted more than once but since the Holidays are upon us, it might cause us to pause and think before we stuff and stuff.Enjoy!
Cookies, Biscuits, Cakes and Tarts. Pies, Betty's, Cobblers, Scones, Shortbreads, Éclairs, Napoleons, Ladyfingers.To what thanks do I owe these lovelies? 
I share with them all that I am, my hips and thighs and my once weightless gait and now I'm waiting on my gaits to catch up with the rest of me. 
Why is it I dream of them with reckless abandon and no self control and how have they become my lover instead of the tall dark and handsome? As sad as this is, I know I am not alone. There are many meeting this sweet lover that rests his or her hands on our waists and hips and promise us endless pleasures, but I know they only last so long as the taste lingers on lips and tongues and then they are gone. What a sinful pleasure and we know it isn't right, a love affair that is not what we had hoped it would be. 
How do we end this meeting of flavors and sights that tease the eyes with sparkle and fluff? 
Will it end, will we kiss the delicate layers goodbye before the evil of it all takes over? 
I try to envision the corners of Betty drying up and Napoleon withering next to dear Ladyfinger, and all that was good is now dead and dying, but wait, out of the corner of my eye.. I caught a glimpse of something glimmering brimming with health and resurrection….I'll visit that vision in time, but now I have to get back to Napoleon, he is waiting...

I Fell for Fall

Fall is deep in the throes of it's color soon to lose it's leaves.  How sad, it never sticks around long enough to suit me.  
It's as pretty to me as the spring time, in reverse.
God's handiwork painting the leaves in a variety of shades and colors and as detailed as the snowflakes in the winter.
How I love it, and I wish I lived up north during this time of year.  
I love the smell of the leaves, the crunch!
I remember making leaf houses as a kid, and piling them up and jumping in them, if I did that now I look an awful mess trying to get up like a 3 year old ha!
There is nothing like Fall, nothing.
I think fall get's hurried along to winter like Thanksgiving does for Christmas.  
It's over in a blink.

What's your favorite time of the year?

More than I Thought

Oh this is shameful, I had good intentions of keeping up with my blog… just know if my mind could write the postings I would've been caught up.

What's exciting……… well…………. I mopped the kitchen floor…………...I finished some postings for a business then I  finished a poster for a party.

  I made these amazing Peanut Butter Bars for my church coffee hour.
I found the recipe on Pinterest .  If for no other reason, that you join Pinterest, then it should be for recipes, it's the bomb for recipes. Especially the fattening kind.

Here's the shameful link to find those little babies Sally's Baking Addiction .  If the blog name doesn't give you an indication of what you're in for, well then… I can't help you.  HA!

So I've been schooling others on Pinterest Business.  If you have a business this is the place, depending of the type of business you have of course. 
 Make sure you have the time to devote to it and setting it up, it is a handful, but once you get it it's not that bad.
Like anything else take baby steps.. Rome wasn't built in a day.

I've done many other things but they seem to bunch up and get a little overwhelming.

Do you UBER?  Uber is great!  It's less than most taxi's.  It's personable.  It is quick to pick you up and it is accommodating.  Even if you think you don't need it, sign up anyway, you never know when you may be in a pinch for a rideThey will pick you up where you're at and there is NO MONEY EXCHANGED EVER!  

Most towns have Uber, check and see if yours does. 
No,  I'm not getting paid for advertising..I just like Uber.  I started driving for Uber nearly a month ago a few days a week, it fits my schedule and a few extra dollars end up in the cookie jar…. I've met many nice people, briefly.  Some have replaced their monthly car payments, insurance, gas for a uber rides.  Cool huh?
I'm also learning more about my city than I knew..places I didn't have a clue were there.
And if you're wondering, the majority of people who use Uber are young professionals, but I see more possibilities here…..

So in a nutshell, I've been busy and good intentions didn't type this…

Hope you have an Uberexciting day..lol
