Mid-week ponderings…

MID WEEK PONDERINGS So…mid week…always a stopping point for me…always a time to take a breath…maybe some of you will remember that old phrase – “hump day”. Well, it’s here – hump day. It’s one of those days when you really don’t want to do anything, much less do any work around the house. But, spoiler alert – stuff still needs to get accomplished! So….get up and get going, Pamela! Ummmm….in a minute…one more cup of coffee! Then…maybe. Oh and did I mention that it’s like 75degrees on a...

Who was that kid in the multicolored coat?

You think you know the story right? A youngun by the name of Joseph was the last arrow in Jacob’s ‘kid’ quiver. So, yep, he was the baby. And as every parent knows, the baby gets his/her way. I think it’s because by the time you get past the first two …. you’re worn out and you let things slide. Or at the very least you compromise, a lot.

Visions of Sugar Plums

  …..dance in my head…..and Thanksgiving is merely two days away. My mouth waters as the invisible scent of roasted turkey, garlic mashed potatoes, steamed corn, buttered greenbeans waft through my consciousness. And then the desserts! Oh my…. But it’s more than just satisfying my need for tryptophan! Much, much more! It’s about family. It’s about friends. It’s about coming together to share generations of memories as well as to catch a glimpse into the future generations that will be. Thanksgiving has been around in various forms for eons...
