A Really Full Life


What comes to mind when you think of comfort food? For me it’s Pot Roast, Chicken & Dumplings, and Lasagna. You know, the kinds of foods that are high in fat, packed with sodium, and deliciously loaded with carbs.  The perfect combination of Yum & Yuck.  Yum because they taste great.  Please don’t embarrass yourself by saying they don’t ;).  But, Yuck because we can’t eat that way anymore.  We can’t teach… Read More

She is like the merchants’ ships; she brings her food from afar. Proverbs 31:14 Our Pool Service technician thinks I’m a great cook. He’s never tasted a bite of anything I’ve made.

My son-in-law, Tom, thought it was just weird to eat a breakfast food for any meal other… Read More

Unlike many bloggers in the Weekly Photo Challenge, I don’t know how to use Photoshop. I’m not whining, I’ve had to choose between Photoshop and learning how to insert photographs into this blog in the appropriate sequence. Learning Photoshop is on my To Do List, and the course is already purchased and waiting on Udemy, but I couldn’t complete it in time to make this challenge. I’m still throwing my hat in… Read More
