Monday Musings… Ice Cream makeover

It’s been awhile, and quite frankly I feel like I have stage fright as I sit here looking at the blank screen, hoping the words I share are inspiring. One of my fears is that I will ramble on. Recently I lost a best friend too soon, then coming up on the year anniversary of…

Time, what about it?

How many times have I started a journal entry or even a post here remarking about time… how it moves quickly, slowly, how FB or other “things” can be time “robbers.” How about the fact that this is the first post in 2015? Time is here, it’s where we live, and all I can say…

Wednesday… Wondering and Wandering

First my disclaimer. I have been absent, silent, in my mind I have shared a dozen blogs. Some funny some introspective, all in my head. Today I cut loose! Recently I found myself reading a book and the guy was talking about some of the reasons we don’t move forward with dreams. One being that…

Just Do It! some running ramblings

I know Nike made this statement big in athletics and exercise years ago. We see the swoop and we automatically get it, and yes today was one of those days that I had to “just do it.” This past year I have poured a lot of my spare “work out” time to yoga and pursuing…

Monday Musings… To you Pop’s

This blog is mostly about food, but the tag line states faith, food, family and fun. Well today it is about family, in particular a little about my Dad, Daddy, Pop’s. Pawpaw to his grandchildren, Jer to my Momma, brother to 11 and friend to many. Pop’s “checked out, went home, the plug was pulled”…

Monday more musings… the rest of the story

It’s July… mid summer, full of sun, thunderstorms and finishing lines for me. I set out over the last year to tackle Yoga teacher training (11 months), and then added in an online Plant Based cooking class (6 months). The weekend of July 12th was my last yoga teacher training weekend. It was a weekend…

Monday Musings… Summer goodness

Two weeks ago craziness was happening at my Mom’s as all the grandkids were around for VBS.  This was one of the little faces that kept us busy, Nova Joy aka Rainbow as she has informed me she likes to be called. Love my family! There was slip and slide, multiple trips to the store…

Monday Musings… dipping is a sweet thing!

I am a little late in posting my blog this Monday. Speaking of the blog, I suppose I should have done a drum roll about a month ago as I have posted over 100 times here. I know, doesn’t sound like much to some bloggers, but for this recovering, well trying to, procrastinator that is…

Monday Musings… inspiration, legacy and peanut sauce

A little late in getting my blog on! It was quite a packed Easter weekend. My younger sister sent a message out to the siblings a couple of weeks ago to surprise Mom and Pop for Easter weekend. So the prep began. For me that includes turning into a crazy woman making kale chips, crackers,…

Monday Musings… time

“Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.” 3john2 I have a confession to make… I don’t do well with managing my time, I am a procrastinator. You know the type, waiting, pondering, finding 5 other things to…

Monday Musings… Sprouts abound!

Ahhh, Thanksgiving week! Today the invasion begins at my Momma’s house as my siblings and their families start making the trip to the house full of thanks, Love and FOOD! There truly is no place like home, and while my Momma’s house is special, it’s really the people who live there, have fought there, have…

Monday Musings… Not just stuffing, maybe better :)

Yes… that’s my family, in all our pre-Thanksgiving dinner glory after the annual Turkey Trot. No you didn’t miss Thanksgiving, this is last year! I am getting excited though for our gathering time to give thanks, eat, hang out and well be crazy. With the day fast approaching I start thinking about what kind of…
