March 8, 2012

If you are like me, you hope, hope, hope……that someone will read and enjoy your post. In the sea of bloggers, what can we do to make ours stand out each week? Ok, so sometimes we write a post just for ourselves …..or we want to show the family all the great photos of the [...]


Hello. My Name is Susan and I Am a Compulsive Food Buyer.

July 8, 2011

I have come to the realization that I am a compulsive food buyer (and eater) and have decided that I am going to cook only what I have in my freezer and my pantry until I get down to the bottom of all that food.  Seriously, how many jars of salsa, hot wing sauce, relish, [...]


A Dream and a Prophecy

May 15, 2011

Have you ever had a dream that you knew was straight from God?  I know that often we get revelations in our dreams about awake matters but very seldom do we get a whole dream that we can say without a shadow of a doubt, God has just spoken to us. I am not sure [...]


Quotations Out the Ying Yang

February 2, 2011

Today is the anniversary of the first date I had with my husband 35 years ago.  It seems like it was yesterday that he asked me out and I said, “No”. In fact, I said that 3 different times over the course of a semester of college.  What can I say?  I was a studious [...]


Newbie’s Recap

December 30, 2010

I was a new blogger this year and really enjoyed learning the ends and outs of making a website/blog.  I am sure you may have felt this way, but I often felt that I was reinventing the wheel….learning how to place widgets, making blog buttons, designing a header, making and answering comments, making anchor texts [...]


L is for Laughing All the Way

December 16, 2010

My grandson has discovered that he likes cooking and so his mom (my #2 daughter) has started including him in the cooking process.  Of course, this has to also include his little sister (Cat) because anything he does, she has to do as well. Recently, she was preparing Chicken Marsala and was explaining the ingredients [...]


Hunting, House Fires and Heroes

November 10, 2010

Last weekend, my husband was invited to go hunting with some of his friends.  He spent a very cold night in a sleeping bag in the bed of his pickup (why do men do this?).  The next day, they were driving over to his friend’s cousins land and they noticed a column of smoke coming [...]


Ghosts of Halloween Past

November 1, 2010

I don’t have a child at home because mine are grown and I have to say that most of our Halloweens were spent at Western Night at the church…..or Harvest Festival….or whatever.  But, I thought I would share my son and daughter-in-law’s costumes this year. We are huge Survivor fans….the whole family.  Back before we [...]


Fantasy Football Names

October 27, 2010

Are you a Fantasy Football fan?  Well, I am not much of a fan myself, but I am quite intrigued with the team names. I guess it is like branding yourself with a blog name.  How long did that take for you?  I thought for months….agonized….started out with my own name…..drafted….re-drafted….and finally came up with [...]


On Furlough

August 22, 2010

I decided to take another class from the teacher….Jenny Matlock.  She hosts Alphabet Thursday and this summer it has been Rainbow Summer School.  This one is called Saturday Centus.  To be honest, I don’t know what Centus actually means.  It isn’t in my online dictionary and I consider myself pretty word savvy too…ha. But anyway, [...]
