I am learning how to teach something I love: paper crafting. I have been making scrapbooks and homemade cards since I was a little girl. I have kept a journal since I was 8. Putting together these two passions into one – and having the opportunity to teach it – is a new venture, and… Read More Stampin’ Up… More Happy Found
I am excited to announce that I hit one of my major 2015 goals: be a blog contributor. Ok, so this was really a goal for 2014, but I can rewrite it into my 2015 list. Especially since I hit the goal so early in 2015. My blog post “Here’s Why My Christmas Tree is… Read More Co-Conspirator, Guest Contributor… Keep Your Circle Positive
My trusty carry-on bag is not so trusty anymore. Somewhere between Greenville, SC and Orlando, FL in November, my bag’s right wheel sustained significant damage–and I didn’t realize the extent until today, somewhere in the Charlotte airport around the C terminal. The wheel I thought was just a bit wonky was actually broken. I discovered… Read More Farewell, old friend
I forgot I knew how to make quiche until Mom reminded me. I was talking, well, really complaining, that I was running out of low carb ideas for supper, that I would actually want to eat. My husband loves low carb meals and I prefer whole grains and lean protein. So, I have to get… Read More Two-Cheese Italian Broccoli Crustless Quiche

I organized my desktop — on my computer! “Desktop Organization Backgrounds… Read More Proud Nerd: Desktop Organized!
My sweet friend and co-worker, Karen, shared her Zuppa Toscana recipe with me because she knew I had been craving it. (Pretty bad when you have been talking about soup so much at work!) To honor Karen’s fiery personality (she’s a saucy firecracker, I tell ya!), I used hot and spicy Italian chicken sausage from… Read More Zuppa Toscana: Karen’s Recipe
By tomorrow morning, I’ll be surprised if there are any leaves left on the trees. The fallen leaves crunch and rustle across our back porch as this first arctic front moves it way down into our neck of the woods. Temps are currently in the mid-40s and are dropping. Twenty-seven degrees Fahrenheit is the predicted… Read More C’mon, Winter!
Thanks to my third grade teacher, I knew peanuts – well, the part I knew as a peanut – grew underground like a potato. As a resident of rural south Georgia, I’m sure I’ve seen the plant growing in the field but not until a few weeks ago could I identify a peanut plant –… Read More Peanuts and Cotton: From the Field
Thanks to an “Around Here” Prompt from a blog I follow by Cathy Zielske, I am posting this inspired blog. The goal is to tell about what you are doing, thinking, dreaming… in your life. Here are my “-ings”. Planning – I’m the Maid of Honor in my dear friend Jessica’s Dec. 1 wedding and (gasp)… Read More “Around Here” Prompt: The –ING of my life right now
I spent All Hallow’s Eve in downtown Savannah for both work and fun. After a board meeting and dinner at Vic’s on the River on Bay Street, with a beautiful balcony view overlooking the Savannah River, we braved a Hearse Tour around the city to look for some haints. (The Old Candler Hospital was the… Read More Visiting Savannah – only a peek
