In The Cold Weather

So I won’t be complaining about Winter anymore. I cannot wait until Summer time :). In the Summer, it’s funny because I normally complain about the heat.

However, being stuck inside for almost half of a year, has made me realize how silly that was. At least when it’s hot, you can jump in a pool, or jump in the ocean or eat an ice cream to cool off.

I like summer , it is because I do not have to think about this subject

Smallest Post Office

We were on our way to the beach after a very long week doing easy scholarships to apply for and we saw the craziest thing.  We live right outside of the country and decided to take another route.  We came across the smallest post office that I have ever seen.  I was able to get a picture of it.  It was about as small as a bathroom you’d find at a convenient store.  It was beautifully built though, it was in a small beach community.  I’ve just never seen anything that small before.


Have you heard of wacky potatoes?  How about wacky jobs?  There are so many “wacky” things out there it’s quite funny.  I was looking around for wacky recipes for a children’s function we are having and wanted to try to make something different, so I went on the search and the work “wacky” came to mind.  I found so many things, wacky hair, wacky scholarships, wacky names, and yes, of course, wacky recipes.  Who knew?  It will be interesting for sure.  I hope the kiddos enjoy.


We made fudge this morning for our teds woodworking review group for a treat. It delicious! I never thought making fudge would be so easy. I really didn’t know what to think about making fudge. I didn’t know if it had to be put in the oven, or what was mixed with it or anything. All you need is some butter, some vanilla, some powdered sugar, peanut butter, milk, and cocoa. You just stir it all together then place in the freezer while it hardens. You enjoy and keep the leftovers in the refrigerator.

Recipe Fun

Trying new recipes is exciting and fun. We went to a group function for consolidation loans for bad credit last week and they provided a dinner for all that were attending. One of the items was a soup, it was in a crock pot. It was very tasty so I was able to get the recipe and try it for myself at home. We were so impressed with how it turned out that we actually went out and bought a new crock pot for ourselves to try new recipes.

Peanut Butter and Honey

There is nothing more tasty than a peanut butter and honey sandwich. To some that may sound pretty gross, but I promise you, it is the yummiest thing ever. So, how did I come to try it? Well, we ran out of jelly one day and our daughter still had some peanut butter left and some bread. I went through our cupboard to see what else we had and I saw some honey and some maple syrup. I chose the honey. To our surprise, it was really good. I have even had some sandwiches the same way.  I will be bringing some to our weird scholarships group next week, it’ll hold everyone over just perfectly.

New Pizza

A new way to make pizza. The things on top stay the same, but the crust is different. You cut up cauliflower into diced little slivers that look like rice. You then cook the rice until it’s a bit soft. You then take the rice and you squeeze out the excess into a towel. Then you mix it with cheese and some italian seasoning and bake the crust on 400 for about 40 minutes. There is your pizza crust. Then top with your favorite toppings and you have a delicious, healthy pizza you don’t have to worry about gaining too much weight from.  Next week at my easy scholarships class, it’s my turn to cook so I think I’ll be making this, it’s quick and easy.

Apple Pie

I got to have an apple pie yesterday for the first time in probably over a year. I try to stay away from sugar as much as possible. When I eat sugar, It seems to get my blood sugar all out of whack. So, I just limit my intake. It’s funny when I do finally eat sugar though, I seem to get really hyped up and hyper for about an hour. Then of course comes the sugar crash. That usually happens about an hour after I eat the sugar. Well, the apple pie was worth it.  I am bringing in some of this delicious apple pie to my credit debt class this week.  Then we’ll all have sugar crashes.


It’s pretty frustrating when you make a call to a large company and they are rude with you and start acting like everything is your fault. I was calling about my printer today so that I can do my work for and they acted like I had just thrown it down the stairs and purposely broke it. This is the second printer that this has happened to and they treated us like a criminal.  It’s not like I was calling a credit card debt consolidation place asking for more credit and I haven’t paid my bill, goodness.

New Teacher

Our son has a new teacher in school, we’re glad that they decided to do this earlier on in the year rather than having the kiddos get used to a teacher for the majority of the year then pull them on to another project. I think that’s really important for their learning. When I started my schooling through left handed scholarships, I didn’t want to change teachers.  They start getting used to one particular teaching style then take more time trying to learn another style.
