The end of May is here already!!! Can you believe it? A lot has gone on this month and I am so ready for summer! Here's my 5 most popular posts during the month of May: 5) From the Surviving Food Insecurity series: Grow Your Own. This series meant so much to me and I…

Hi-Yah!

I haven't forgotten about Auggie's travel through our library's 100 Books to Read Before Kindergarten list. It has been a while since I've posted, but I knew that summer was coming and with summer comes the summer reading program and the summer lunch program. We are going to be spending a lot of time at…

Made a Quiche

Me. I did it! I totally made a quiche and it was YUMMY!! I love quiches. When we go to the Old Mill in Pigeon Forge, it's the only thing I'll order. When we go to Mimi's Cafe in Mason, OH, it's the only thing I'll order. I've been addicted to the stuff since I…

Finding Beauty

I bought myself a little bouquet of flowers. They were in the discount bin at Kroger, but had no visible browning or signs of decay. The bright orange lifted my spirits immediately. Seriously the picture above does not do it any justice. It doesn't hurt that they were only $2. I needed something beautiful in…

Speed Limit of Life

"When we opened the speed limit was 100 and you all ran around going 250". I paraphrased that, but that's pretty much what my boss's boss's boss said to all of us on the last day of the semester. The older supervisors got offended and started defending themselves and raising their voices, but geez he…

Gift Cards

I love gift cards. I love to give them. They can be personalized to a person's tastes (give my hubby GameStop or none at all) or simply a generic card to a gas station. I love to get them. I can do a lot of damage with sales and gift cards. Recently, I got a…
