Happy New Year!

 

 

Just wanted to pop in to wish you a happy, healthy, prosperous, exciting, meaningful 2018…..

 

Thought you might like this graphic my tech girl just made of me and Hubby. (We are the second picture…. ROFLOL).

Sometimes life is just like this graphic. It isn’t quite what we think it is. It doesn’t really look like what we think it looks like.

Homestyle Skillet Green Beans (aka Best Fresh Green Beans EVER!)

 

I am not a fan of many vegetables….but fresh green beans are another story altogether. I adore them–and I have been known to make them every single week in my Parmesan Roasted Green Beans, Crock Pot Green Beans and “Potatoes,” or this homestyle recipe. I don’t like snapping green beans by myself. Ever since I have been married, snapping beans has been a family affair. My husband and I would put in a movie and snap buckets of green beans from our garden when we were first married. And later I would read aloud to my kids for hours as they snapped beans, peeled potatoes, cleaned fruits, etc. As a matter of fact, just recently, my twenty-year old son came in when I was cleaning veggies and said, “Do you remember when we would all gather around the table with fruits and vegetables and clean and cut all morning long while you read The Chronicles of Narnia series aloud to us? And how we never wanted to stop even when we were done with the produce? I miss those days!” Be still my heart….

The Power of Household and Business “Blitzes”!

The Power of Household & Business Blitzes

 

Over twenty-five years ago, with four children eight and under, we learned the value of a timer. We began using them to teach our children time management. We would have them do various tasks and set the timer so that they could see how long things take when they really applied themselves.

 

For example, in setting up their morning routine charts, we would have them run and do each task that was going to be on their chart as we timed them, then when we made the charts, we would put the time that it should take (based on our timing session) in parentheses following each line item on the chart. (This also helped us to know what was reasonable to expect in a certain time period.)

How to Quietly Follow a Post on Facebook

How to Quietly Follow a Post on Facebook

 

People in Facebook groups can get pretty grouchy sometimes. And people in dieting FB groups are the worst of all!

 

One of the things that FB groupies get the most upset about (besides the obvious posting of a picture of your lunch with half a banana on the plate on low carb FB pages!) is that of people following a post by writing “Following” or placing * in the Comments Section. Wowsie…I have seen people come undone over this one (over the “Following” AND the half a banana!).

Sugar-Free, Flour-Free Affiliate Round Up

Sugar-Free Flour-Free Affiliate Round Up

One of the frustrating things for me as I started my sugar-free journey was definitely securing the products I needed in order to make the recipes and ideas that I found. I am not a store-hopper. I don’t like to go to more than one store in a week (with an Amazon order thrown in most weeks!). It goes back to my efficiency-expert-wanna-be ambitions—shopping feels like a waste of time since it takes so much time.
