We’ve all heard that saying, “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater.” Too often in my life, I’ve focused on the bathwater to the exclusion of the baby.

Of course, we all do. Without them, where would this country be? In aContinue reading “Memorial Day Musings”
In honor of Mother’s Day this past weekend, I decided to make my mom’s granola recipe. Further, I thought I might share it with all of you! It’s got all kinds of good stuff in it and substitutions are easy to make. Although fruit isn’t included in the ingredients, it can be added at theContinue reading “Wendy’s Granola”
Determined. Oxford Languages defines this as: “having made a firm decision and being resolved not to change it.” I’ve had to do that lately.
