So Much To Do…And A New Office Project!

Is it just me or are you also finding you have so much to do and Less and Less Time to get it done?

I remember back to when my office work day consisted of at least 8 hours, more like 9 or even 10 hours and yet I managed to work full time, come home do laundry, clean house and still have time for family and friends.

Now that I have retired…there does not seem to be enough hours in a day to get everything I would like to do ….done or finished.

I Love Daisies! And I Love This Easy Recipe For Making Them!

Sing with me……

Daisy, Daisy, give me you answer true.
I’m half-crazy all for the love of you.
It won’t be a stylish marriage,
I can’t afford a carriage;
But you’ll look sweet
Upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two.

I love daisies!!!!

Mashed Potatoes, That You Do-Ahead! The Easy Mashed Potatoes Recipe!

Do Ahead Potatoes, The Easy Mashed Potato Recipe!

Have you ever had a “go-to” recipe that is a never fail and always there for you kind of recipe?

Of course you have.

We all have a family favorite that has become like a signature dish in our recipe files.

In fact, many times we do not need the recipe to follow because we already know the ingredients and the order they fall in…

…..because we have made the recipe so many times.

This is such a recipe and it is a recipe that I treasure because of who gave it to me, and yes, there is a story to tell.

April, Ahhhhh Miss April, Let Me Count The Ways!

April, Ahhhhh Miss April, Let Me Count The Ways!

I can’t help but think of the song April Showers whenever I think of the month of April.

Though April showers may come your way,
They bring the flowers that bloom in May.
So if it’s raining, have no regrets,
Because it isn’t raining rain, you know, (It’s raining violets,)
And where you see clouds upon the hills,
You soon will see crowds of daffodils,
So keep on looking for a blue bird, And list’ning for his song,
Whenever April showers come along.

This is the fourth in my series of the months of the year. If you missed them, the links are below.

 Miss January here,

Miss February here 

Mr. March here,
