Half done… or is it well begun?

Do you ever feel like many things in your daily life are only half done?  =)
I think I have accidentally coined that as my motto…   *sigh**
Mary Poppins says it this way:  “Well begun is half done!”
Bless you Mary Poppins… you make me feel a little better!
I have the Spring itch… to divide and conquer all [...]

Who knew Spring was so complicated? =)

Am I the only person who had no idea the first official hour of Spring was so complicated?  =)

I thought it was always March 21st?
A few blogs mentioned the first day of Spring on  Sunday March 20!
and I thought… hm… they must not know that it is always March 21st…
(ha ha ha ha ha… that [...]

3-19 Sunday Post

This week was a BUSY one
so I did not spend time capturing quality photos
Honestly I did not even write down the scavenger hunt list …
I did remember cell phone & chair – but I didn’t intentionally snap a chair…
between soccer practices and a game, home schoolin, volunteering at school, girl scouts, a wee band concert, [...]

Simple, Gluten Free and YUMMY!

If you visited my blog on March7th you might remember
the Creamy Taste of Italy  Soup I made

I had one left… what is a [...]

I am SO Spaced Out

OK… that came out wrong…
but it brought back high school memories…
not that I want those memories flooding back into my
somewhat well adjusted adult head… =)
for those of you who were teens in the 80’s…
did we use that term a lot or is it just in my imagination??
Dude, I am totally spaced out… (he he)  yes?  [...]

Soup anyone?

My Taste of Italy Soup Recipe  =)
I’ll just call it that since it really doesn’t have a name…
I had a craving for a zucchini sausage soup that I have eaten before… but it was tomato based… and I had visions in my head of a cream based soup with asparagus… because I am lovin that [...]
