Thankful Thursday!

I don't even know if I could tell you how thankful I am that today is Thursday.  The day did start out just a little rough, but we coffee'd through that.  I am so glad that I get to share some lovely things with you that I am super thankful for. 

1. Sunday is my birthday!!!  34 years ago Sunday, my Momma bore me from her womb.  I am so thankful that God used her to deliver me into this world and that she and my father, cared for me and taught me and set me free to unleash my craziness self on the world.

2. With that in mind I am thankful for early birthday presents!!!!!! Which will make up the rest of my Thankful Thursday list...

A.   A membership to The Detroit Institute of Art.  I am looking forward to wandering around and taking in all  the beautiful arts and maybe even catching a film or two!

B. A gift card to amazon.com where I purchased not only Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs from Video On Demand that we've been watching on the Roku, but also a subscription to Midwest Living, some music, and some sundries for the kitchen. 


C. Finally a fore mentioned music has a song that I have wanted for ages!  It's from the movie Shag and I love the scene on the dock and have wanted the tune from it for the longest time, but it's not on the soundtrack and then the movie was bought from Doubletree by MGM and the music was changed in it.  Which was so terribly disappointing, but alas, I have the song and it will be shipped to me in a matter of days! (If you happen to read the reviews of this movie, you will see, that most everyone is upset by this soundtrack change)

3.  I wanted to let you all know that I am terribly thankful for all of you, my blog readers!  I really enjoy writing for you.  If there is ever anything that you have a question about or that you would like for me to write about, please don't hesitate to leave a comment or drop me an email sometime.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together.

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
