5 Things: Happy 2021!

  Happy Friday! Hopefully, you all had a wonderful set of holidays and are easing into the new year with the promise of new beginnings. As I write this, 2021 is off to a bit of a rocky start (first major understatement of the decade). I am prayerful, though, that we can all come togetherContinue reading “5 Things: Happy 2021!”

Advent 2020: Day 22

  Good morning! If you had a chance to check out yesterday\’s crossword puzzle, you can see the answers here.  Apparently, in 2020 Santa Claus decided to take up comedy. Part of this is obviously a PSA because Santa wants some decent cookies and nothing gluten-free. Also, now we all know to watch for Applebee\’sContinue reading “Advent 2020: Day 22”

5 Things: Cheesy Austen Addiction Edition

  Happy Friday! Hope that you all had a great week like pigeons everywhere who are applauding racing pigeon New Kim for raising up their street cred this week. $1.9 million for a pigeon. Holy moly! Personally, I\’d prefer shopping in the Neiman Marcus Christmas catalog with that kind of cheese.   Well, even if youContinue reading “5 Things: Cheesy Austen Addiction Edition”

5 Things: World Kindness Day Edition

  Happy Friday and Happy World Kindness Day! Hope that you all had a great week and are able to do something kind today. Heaven knows that we all need more kindness this year. Like A LOT more!

5 Things: Non-Partisan Edition

  Happy Friday! Hope that you all had a great week like the couple who fell in love over Dunkin\’ Donuts. What happens when you fall in love because of Dunkin\’? You get married where you met, of course! That seemed like a better news blip than election results (or lack thereof) and continued madnessContinue reading “5 Things: Non-Partisan Edition”

5 Things: Scared Before Edition

  Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week and managed to enjoy some of the snowy weather if you were fortunate to have some while staying home.

5 Things: Dance Ablaze Edition

  Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week or at least recognized (for my American friends, anyway) that it\’s Labor Day weekend with a bonus Monday off to sleep in or reminisce over those weekends that you complained about soccer practices and morning wedding ceremonies.  Well, even if you do not get toContinue reading “5 Things: Dance Ablaze Edition”

5 Things: Lightning Cuteness Edition

  Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week despite the ramping up of political ads. (November can\’t come quickly enough in my view!) I thought that I was safe not having air or cable TV but now the ads are invading my internet viewing. Ack! Well, even so, we have come to Friday.Continue reading “5 Things: Lightning Cuteness Edition”

5 Things: Hoppy Dance Edition

  Happy Friday and a very Happy Birthday to Mum! Hope you all had a great week like when you catch up with an old friend and the conversation flows as though you\’ve never been apart. (Isn\’t that just the best?) That is one of the plusses of quarantine; old friends coming out of theContinue reading “5 Things: Hoppy Dance Edition”

5 Things: Blockbuster Pancakes Edition

  Happy Friday! Hope that you all had a great week like the treasure hunter who struck gold… um… bronze in Scotland. That reminds me of growing up in Charleston, South Carolina where my siblings and I would dig up pieces of blue and white broken china in our yard. The pieces were probably fromContinue reading “5 Things: Blockbuster Pancakes Edition”
