All Things Southern – Bless her little unfortunate heart

       Yep! That’s about right. My heart is always in the right place; but what I’m doing just seems to get me in trouble.        It’s the story of my life folks.        For all you following my stories, you probably remember that about this time last year, I mowed over one of Hubby’s prized fig trees in our little orchard of a back yard. Putting it mildly, he was none too pleased.…

Thursdays – Where Truth is the Dare

It’s Thursday again – and we all know what that means! Here is this week’s question. Truth? or Dare? What do you keep in a safe place? When I read this question, my immediate response before contemplating a deep answer was “my heart”. Even after contemplating and attempting to come up with a one of a kind unique answer, I have to stick with my first. I keep my heart in a safe place –…

All Things Southern – Love thy animal as thyself?

   We’ve become “those” people…(hanging my head in shame)          Last night we dined with friends to celebrate Hubby’s birthday (he’s 52, but I’ll deny until my last breath that I mentioned that fact).          We normally see each other about once a week or so, and after catching up with the latest news – our upcoming vacation and theirs, we arrived at the restaurant.          As…

From the Heart – A Southern Staple – Jambalaya!

Goodness! I’ve had an exhausting week and I think my house is going to permanently harbor the stench of cooking onions.          I cooked a huge batch of jambalaya mix to freeze. While the idea of sitting down to a wonderful plate of “instant” jambalaya sounds enticing, getting it to that point isn’t so great.          One day I am going to learn to chop and cook the onions in the outside kitchen, then…

Procrastination Saturday

So…what have you procrastinated about this week? On Monday, I mowed grass and bathed the dogs, instead of writing. On Tuesday, I put ant killer in the yard, instead of writing. (I later wrote two book reviews and my post on “All Things Southern”. On Wednesday, I slept late due to a late night on Tuesday, and then sat around and read, instead of writing. On Thursday, I hopped around with a blog hop and visited, instead of…

The five things you wish you'd known about me BEFORE…

The five things you wish you’d known about me BEFORE you became friends with me… I have been neglectful in acknowledging a few blog awards that I have been given. Sorry guys! I appreciate your thoughtfulness.   In April, M.J. Kane awarded me the “Lucky Meme” award. Because I have no manuscript in which to skip to a certain page and give you a preview, I couldn’t accept it. I appreciate it anyway!  Thanks M.J.! She, by the…
