Happy Birthday Kora!

Our youngest granddaughter, Kora, is 10 today! I can still remember  the day she was born. I got there the next day as I couldn't get away from work the day of her birth, but she was a beauty and a keeper! She has been fun to watch in the last 10 years. She's a kind child, always humming or singing, asks to help, loves games and loves the beach when she is here visiting us! Happy, happy birthday, sweet Kora! Blessings from your Grammy!!!

post birthday blues

Yesterday was my 64th birthday, I'm pretty excited to be able to sing the Beatles song, "When I'm 64." But just when I think things are going good, the "hub" forgets my birthday entirely. NO card, extra kiss, gift and extra hug. Man, where did I go wrong!???  So on this blog I feel safe to say, I'm really bummed out! He usually doesn't forget the whole thing, maybe a card , but this just hurts!! My kids and friends do better at making me feel wonderful for my birthday. It makes me wonder what is he thinking?? I don't want to read too much into this, but it makes one think! I told him this hurts my feelings, but sorry just doesn't cut it! Any suggestions?? Pray for me! I'm very sad! Blessings!

odds and ends

Okay, so one of my favorite sites these days to visit is www.onehundreddollarsamonth.com. The site belongs to Mavis Butterfield, she's a major gardener and gives you lots of tips to spend less money, beyond gardening help. Today's page talked about going to a new grocery store, which is a favorite thing for me to visit. I love going to a grocery store beyond the one I work at: love seeing the produce, how they have set up the aisles, love seeing the fresh meats or seafood, bulk food items and etc. Mavis gives you food for thought too.
Another favorite website is www.smittenkitchen.com. Deb Perlman is the author of that one. So, today she made caramel corn using miso, I have no clue what miso is or what it tastes like, so in that regards I'm a picky eater. If I buy the miso and don't like the taste , what do I do with the rest, throw it out, I think not! Have any of you tasted miso, will you describe it for me??? I did google miso, but still leery of buying it!
The Lord blessed me yesterday and today. Some of you see me daily or weekly, and know how bent over I have been for the past year. I have been gifted standing up straight for 2 days, woohoo!!!! Thank you Jesus!! This is beyond what I thought could happen! Blessings
