Meditation and Poptarts

Meditation and Poptarts

It’s 6:00 a.m. and I’m attempting to meditate.  So far, it’s not working.  Oh, I’m “thinking” alright, but it’s not very calming.  I “think” all the time so setting aside time to think about thinking is causing me to overthink even more. My purpose for meditating is to help me find a relaxing state of […]

Good Neighbors and Zucchini Quiche

Good Neighbors and Zucchini Quiche

I have good neighbors.  Not many houses come up for sale in my neighborhood and I’m sure one of the reasons why is that we are indeed a neighborly group.  Early on in the pandemic, I ran out of hand soap and when I couldn’t find ANY to order from my local grocery deliveries,  my […]

Fudge Thumbprints and Fifteen

Dessert Craze What’s the next big dessert craze going to be?  Anyone have any thoughts on this deep subject?  I’ve lived through my share of fad foods and I’m eagerly awaiting the next.  We’ve had cake pops, cookie store cookies, crazy cupcakes, and drip cakes.  This new fad of scraping the frosting off the sides […]

Zoom and Lemon Bars

Missed You!  Welcome back!  I’ve missed chronicling my life through Frankly Southern and letting my long-distance friends see what I’m up to, so with the help of my two amazing, internet-savvy friends (and my own techy spawn), I was able to get my site restored.  There are still some old posts that have not been transferred […]

Baked Beans in a Presidential Skillet

As simple a dish as it is, everyone seems to have a different baked bean recipe.  I’m going to enter my Cast Iron Skillet Baked Beans into the mix as not only a pretty side dish, but a tasty one, too.  My Cast Iron Skillet Baked Beans recipe is somewhat basic so if you absolutely […]

Way Out of Shape Wednesday

Davis keeps telling me I need to have each day of the week as a specified day for my blog.  He’s young and has some good insight to this social media stuff.  I thought it was a great idea.  Some of the ones I’ve seen already in use  are Meatless Monday and Throwback Thursday.  I […]

Hot Dog Bar

Hot Dog Bar

Saturday night UGA football is a good night to make a Hot Dog Bar.  It was nostalgic and tasty.   I’m typing this post quickly so I can upload before the game starts.  I might have to finish on commercials like I did my Halloween decorations. I was excited to find nitrite-free, by-product free, gluten-free, […]

Halloween Decorations

Halloween Decorations 2017

I had already decided I wasn’t going to decorate for Halloween when Olivia came home this past weekend.  Neither child (although they are not children anymore) was going to be home on Halloween and I didn’t want to get out all the boxes of decorations just to decorate for myself.  Then, Olivia decided she wanted […]

The afternoon events […]

Punch Needle Fail

I have been trying to learn a new craft for the last few days but I have ended in punch needle fail.  I carefully took pictures of my steps because I was sure I would be posting a zippy little story about my adorable punch needle creations.  This will not be the case as I […]
