Received my free book from Booksneeze.com today!

This is the teen-advice book called The Truth about Dating, Love and Just Being Friends, by Chad Eastham.
My son will be turning 14 on the 8th, so I am going to read thru this in the next two weeks and then hand it over to him so he can learn from it. I will submit my review in 2 weeks (and I secretly hope he will read it and give me a review as well!) : )

I have been slightly 'slack' at keeping up with this blog the last week because I was out of town and brought home a sinus infection! Oh joy! Not feeling up to par, so I will be back when I can!

Call a family member you haven't chatted with in a very long time. Just catch up!

Sandra Bullock has been my fav actress for a very long time...

Story photo: Sandra Bullock Steps Out as Ex Jesse James Announces EngagementAAR/Fame PicturesUs Magazine

She is such a regular person, not full of herself like other actors. She has a beautiful heart and soul. It doesn't hurt that she's beautiful on the outside, either.

Here, we see Miss Bullock with her adopted son Louis, who turns one this month. She's in NY to shoot "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" with Tom Hanks.

She looked amazing on Sunday at the Golden Globes, and admitted she was "having trouble" being away from her little guy for the first time but with "modern technology," she could still "see him". You have Skype and iChat and things like that. Every five minutes my phone goes off with pictures, documentation. He's got the iPad and the iPhone and the computer with iChat."

Too cute : )

I've just been informed (almost 2 yrs later) that Maya did not in fact write this. Here's the link to show who did (the Snopes site is not allowing me to copy & paste): http://www.snopes.com/glurge/christian.asp

Still lovingly beautiful :)

I posted this a couple of years ago and felt a tug to post it again : )


by Maya Angelou

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean livin'' I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect, My flaws are far too visible but, God believes I am w orth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain..
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou, I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Last night and today's meals, prepared ahead of time so I can just makes sides for them this week : )

Last night I made a (2 lb) beef roast with a jar of peperocini peppers & it's liquid... Cooked it in the slow cooker on low for 8 hrs and pulled it apart with a fork. When we're ready to eat it this week, we'll set some on a sesame seed bun with some fresh sliced swiss... mmmMMMM!! (idea is from "A Year of Slow Cooking".) Can be served with mac-n-chz or mashed taters.

Today in the crockpot is a pork tenderloin, cut to fit, with 1 Tbsp garlic pepper spice, 1/2 tsp (kosher or sea)salt... cook on low 6 hours, add jar of BBQ sauce and a tsp of seasoning salt, cook two more hours. Pull apart and eat on onion buns with slaw : ) Can be served with sweet potatoes fries or raw cauliflower and dip.

January 16, 2011

Today's snack : )

The batteries are out in my digital camera, so until I get more, you'll just have to use your imagination : )

A large size black soup bowl, aka, my Glutton Bowl.
Beautiful, white yogurt-covered raisins.
Large hunks of dried yellow pineapple.
Dark, Blueberry 'craisins'.
Slivered almonds.
Chopped hazelnuts.

*sigh* So good!

Enjoy your day!

Book Review: "The Jesus Inquest: The Case for and against the Resurrection of the Christ"

The Jesus Inquest: The Case for and against the Resurrection of the Christ
by Charles Foster

I am a Christian, but I am in no way perfect, I am still learning, every day. This book put some questions in my mind... and showed me how easily satan can get in there, which of course I already know.
So the next time I picked up the book to read, I prayed first... I asked God to keep my mind on Him, first and foremost.

This book is very thought-provoking. It talks about artifacts, medical evidence, burial practices and more. It is based on two minds; the mind of 'X', who represents the non-Christian view, and 'Y' who represents the Christian view. Everything covered here is cross-referenced, and looked at from different angles.

This book gets deep. It gets deep into your heart, too.

306 pages of reading... Scripture, Appendixes, Notes, References to other books, and more.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255



14kt White Gold Ruby Heart and Flower Neck-pieceYour first piece of jewelry is always the most precious and dearest piece since it was most likely given to you by a very special person—it is your own personal treasure. As the years pass, you acquire more pieces, whether they are gifts, inheritance, or you purchase them for yourself. Some jewelry pieces you will like more than others and there will be those that are your signature pieces—the ones that you wear everyday or quite frequently. Regardless how many pieces of jewelry you own, your jewelry should be well maintained and cared for. Your jewelry will be in pristine condition with a little TLC.

Let's begin with daily wear. Are you aware that soaps, shampoos, powders and lotions can build up a lot of residue and leave a filmy build-up under and around a setting? This would reduce the brilliance of a diamond or the brightness or intensity of a colored gemstone. This can also give gold a dull appearance.

Most people enjoy outdoor activities—whether its sports or chores. However, these can also cause havoc for your jewelry. As an example, if you are an avid gardener, and like most people, you want to feel the soil and avoid wearing gardening gloves, you risk losing your rings as they could slip off your fingers. Also, dirt could be embedded within the setting and the stones could possibly get chipped. A bracelet or chain could get caught in something and could get damaged or lost.

If you go to the gym, spa or even have the facilities at home—do not hot tub, sauna
or swim in chlorinated pools as these elements can damage gems by wearing away at the polished finish creating a very dull surface. They can also discolor a gemstone.

Sterling Silver Artisan Three Stone Ruby Ladies RingJewelry that has stones that are set with claws and/or prongs, should be regularly checked as they can wear down with time and get broken which would result with a stone breaking or falling out of the mount. A jeweler can re-tip the prongs. Sometimes in our daily routines and activities whether at work or home, a ring can be knocked or hit against something which can damage the claw—most of the time we are not even aware. I can tell you first hand, it happened to me—two of the claws in my engagement ring were bent sideways, when my hand accidentally hit a wall. I could hear a distinct rattling sound because the diamond was loose in the setting. Link chains and bracelets, especially larger links can wear thin over the years, especially if worn everyday. The interconnecting links rub against each other from movement thereby thinning them out.

The earrings that you just purchased or received as a gift should have the closure cleaned with an alcohol swab—this will kill any bacteria. You do not know who tried on those earrings before you.

When putting on earrings, especially studs, most people press their index finger against the stone while pushing in the butterfly. It is wise to put a tissue over the surface of the stone as you apply the closure since your finger leaves an impression on the stone's
surface and takes away from the brilliance, sparkle and shine of the stone.

If you have post and butterfly earrings, the butterfly should not glide on too easily, but rather should be pushed on the post. If it glides too easily, it can also slip off easily and you would lose your earrings.

Rings should have the bottom of the shanks checked, especially if they are worn everyday. Shanks can thin out and snap off your finger.

When removing your chains, try to place the chain flatly on a surface to avoid knots or kinks. Beaded necklaces should also be flatly stored since the silk strand can stretch over time. If too stretched, they could come apart.

14kt Vintage Shell Carved Side Profile Young Ladies Cameo Dangle EarringsCameos, which truly are miniature works of art because of their incredible master craftsmanship, are also very fragile. They are prone to cracking and discoloration from age, dryness or elements; they must be carefully cared for and stored. You should dust your cameos every few months with a soft cloth or soft brush. If dust is accumulated over time, it can cause your cameo to get scratched. When dusting your cameo, pay close attention to the deep ridges where dust can accumulate. After dusting it, you can rinse it with warm water and dry with a soft cloth. Once a year, apply a little mineral oil lightly with a cotton swab to the front and back of your SHELL cameo and leave it on for several hours before wiping if off. The mineral oil helps prevent discoloration, change of color and prevents it from becoming dry or

Diamonds measure 10 on the Moh's Scale of Hardness, but still require proper care and cleaning. A diamond's sparkle can diminish from hygienic and grooming products, household chemicals and powders. Also, the skin's natural oils and sweat can diminish the brilliance. Using a gentle dish washing soap with a soft brush and warm water, you can clean the surface and around the settings and then rinse. Or if you wish, you can also use commercial jewelry cleaner. Ladies, when applying certain sprays, i.e. perfume, hairspray, deodorants—wait for a few minutes before putting on your jewelry. As an example, if you applied perfume and then put your pearl necklace on and the perfume was not completely dry, the iridescence, luster and color of the pearl could be altered and would become dull and lifeless overtime. It is highly advised to have your pearl strand restrung every 1-2 years and to have knots between your pearls. If your stand breaks, your pearls will not be scattered all over and by having a knot in between each pearl bead, they avoid scratching against each other. It's best to keep them clean by placing them in mild soapy water and then letting them dry on a towel. If you wear your pearls frequently, wipe them with a soft damp cloth to avoid any kind of chemical build-up.

14kt Gentlemen's Vintage Opal RingIt is advisable not to wear opal jewelry in extreme heat. Do not have it exposed to direct sun, or extremely cold weather as the opals may crack when subjected to these conditions.
Opals contain water within them and if you live in a dry climate, it is best to store your opal jewelry in a plastic bag with a damp piece of fabric or cotton ball—this will prevent it from dehydrating since opals crack easily when dry. Do not clean opals with chemical jewelry cleaners since they are porous and can absorb the liquids. It's best to use a gentle dish washing liquid, mild water and a soft toothbrush.

Corals are very porous gems and should not come in contact with any chemicals. It is also a very soft gem and should be carefully stored so it doesn't get scratched or chipped. Coral jewelry should be cleaned with a moist soft cloth.

Turquoise is also another very porous and fragile stone which should be kept away from heat and chemicals. Since they scratch easily, store them separately in a jewelry pouch and clean with lukewarm water and soft brush.

A very, very soft gem is amber and it can get scratched very easily. Since it is a very porous stone, please apply your perfume or hairspray before putting on amber jewelry, this way it won't be coated with a dull film. Wipe your amber jewelry with a soft cotton or flannel cloth and also store separately.

Jet was very popular during the Victorian period. Since it is soft and scratches easily, store it separately in a small pouch. Take a soft cloth and dip it into olive oil and gently rub it over the jet and then polish it to restore its shine and remove any particles.

The beauty of marcasite stones, which were
very popular during the Victorian era, is their grey to almost black color as well as their sparkle and flash in light. Today, you often see marcasites in vintage-inspired jewelry as well as authentic antique/vintage pieces. Popular combinations for marcasite are hematite and mother mother-of-pearl set in silver or white gold because of their appealing combination. Since marcasite is commonly set with jeweler's glue or cement, they should not get wet in order to prevent the stone from getting loose. Remove all marcasite jewelry before engaging in any activity that involves water (shower, bath, washing your hands, swimming, etc.). As well, avoid cleaning marcasite jewelry with any chemical jewelry cleaners, ultrasonic cleaner and steam. Use a dry soft cloth to clean it. If it is necessary to use a damp cloth, then wipe it gently and dry with an absorbent cloth and leave the jewelry item out for a few hours to guarantee that it is thoroughly dry.

The sparkle and reflection in rhinestone jewelry is attributed to the foil backing on each stone. Moisture is the number one threat to rhinestones which can result in the stones becoming dull and losing their sparkle. Sources of moisture include water and sweat, which if trapped under the stone's backing, would deteriorate and loosen the foil backing. In order to retain its glorious sparkle, spray a little Windex on a soft tooth brush (never directly on the jewelry item) and then take a folded paper towel and rub the toothbrush
bristle across the surface of the paper towel. In a swirling motion clean the surface of the stone and around the setting with the paper towel. Take a hairdryer and set it on low and dry it. Even after it is dry, allow one hour before you put the jewelry item away in an airtight bag.

Bakelite and/or resin jewelry are referred to interchangeably, but are the same. Bakelite is the trade name for resin and is named after its inventor, Dr. Leo Hendrik Baekeland. Vintage resin jewelry can be quite valuable and special care is required in order to preserve its beauty and rarity. It can easily discolor and the finish often cannot be restored. Keep all resin jewelry away from any heat sources since this would cause the plastic to melt. Clean your pieces with mild soapy water. You can also buff it with a soft cloth. Wrap it in tissue paper or keep it in a soft pouch.

14kt Victorian Multi Seed Pearl Wishbone BroochGold jewelry should be removed when using any kind of household chemicals since they create abrasions on the metal which would minimize the gold's luster. Gold's biggest enemy is chlorine—stay out of chlorinated pools and hot tubs and avoid cleaning products that have chlorine in them since gold jewelry will weaken over time causing it to crack or break. Clean your jewelry with warm water and a gentle brush.

Silver jewelry is best cleaned with a soft cloth or a fine piece of felt. If silver is very dirty, try silver cleaner. Silver will discolor from chlorine. When you wear your silver jewelry it will tarnish
from exposure to light, air and from physical activity (sweat). Remove it at the end of the day and clean thoroughly. Since it is a soft metal, it will scratch easily and should be stored in a soft cloth bag.

Platinum is a very durable and strong metal and should be stored separately from your other jewelry to protect it from getting scratched. It can be cleaned with mild soapy water and a soft cloth. By cleaning it regularly, it will retain its luster and shine. Platinum will develop a natural patina overtime, thereby diminishing its high gloss. It is advisable to get your platinum jewelry polished by an experienced jeweler once a year to restore it to its original luster.

Enamel jewelry must be handled with care as enamel can chip as well as scratch easily. Wrap each individual piece of jewelry in tissue paper to protect the surface coating. Clean it with a soft cloth. Do not use any type of cleaning solution because it can remove the glassy smoothness.

There is so much intrigue and fascination with antique and vintage jewelry. Whether you own one or several pieces, wear them exclusively, combine them with your contemporary jewelry, or collect them from a certain era, you can preserve their beauty and value by maintaining them carefully. These pieces are delicately made; they are very fine and have to be handled carefully. Keep each piece in separate pouches or individual jewelry boxes.

Use a soft jewelry cloth to clean them or if you have to remove grime, I have known
people who have used baby wipes—gentleness is the key. Do not ever place these pieces in direct contact with running water. With a soft cloth dipped in mild soapy water, gently stroke the jewelry item with it. For hard to reach places, a Q-tip or cotton swab works very well. Let it air dry naturally by leaving it out for a few hours.

Moisture is jewelry's biggest enemy that can cause serious damage especially to antique jewelry. It can be the breeding ground for verdigris, which can result in areas of your jewelry turning dark green to blue green in color. As an example, if verdigris deposits attack the prongs, stones won't be held in place. As well, jewelry can also rust from moisture.

Try to keep your individual pieces of jewelry in small plastic bags—they look like mini Ziploc bags, they are available in craft shops. This will prevent your jewelry from scratching against each other.

At home care for your jewels requires minimal time and is so simple. Jewelry that you wear everyday should be cleaned on a weekly basis. Like a doctor, you have a trusting relationship with your jeweler and should have your jewelry checked and looked after annually.

Jewelry can retain its brand new appearance as along as its cared for. By adhering to basic care and cleaning tips, your jewelry will always retain their original beauty, brilliance, shine, value and will last a lifetime.

More Snow : )

It finally stopped snowing (with a little sleet mixed in) around 12 pm. This is the beauty part. The ugliness will be later when the freezing rain really sets in and the previous snow has a 1/4 inch of ice on top, making roads hazardous.

Beginnings of sleet after the snows.

Couldn't find a ruler. This is an average wire hanger set down into the snow on my railing.

Zach. We'd already been in it, walking down the pond behind us with my folks, and this was his second trip back out.

Minnie taking her second trek out into it. This time, she sunk in!!

Zach heading over to my Mom & Dad's next door. Can you see the drift of snow up the trunk of the giant oak in front of him to his left a little?! Also, notice that you can't see dirt in the path. He drug his boots thru that snow! We got a final measurement of 6" here in Ballentine (15 miles NW of Columbia).

The Silence of Snow

I love the silence that snow brings with it.
The world halts for a while as God gives us, once again, something beautiful to look at.

We are having what the news stations are calling Thunder Snow. Like thunder storms but with snow instead of rain. I had never heard of it. Yet the sound woke me at 5:20-ish. In our Capital, Columbia, they had lightening with it. Freaky.
I have about 1-1.5 inches of snow and when I awoke to check it out, I heard freezing rain coming down on top of it.
I will add more pictures in another hour or so when my world lightens here in Ballentine, SC : )

Mannnn, that piece of end-bread is for the birds!


I can't afford the excruciatingly high price of bird seed any longer and I refuse to buy the 'cheap stuff' because that's what it is, cheap; full of stems, sticks, and small stones I could use for gravel in my driveway! Plus, they won't eat it, I have proof LOL

So, for their treat when I run out of birdseed, (and it's going to snow tomorrow at some point anyway), I use the ends of the bread loaves that I don't like to eat. I let it stay out there for about 4 days if it's not gone sooner than that, and then I put out a fresh one in another clean bowl.

I spread a thin layer of peanut butter on the bread, cover it in raisins, craisins and walnuts, and anything else they would normally eat in nature, and press it all lightly into the spread.

I put the slice of bread in a small bowl and place it on top of my birdfeeding station, above the non-stocked birdseed holders, so they'll know exactly where to find it.

They LOVE it! See that brown bowl on top? Yep, that's it.

Don't forget to keep their water bowls or birdbaths in the sun where the warmth will keep it melted during the cold months. Keep it CLEAN and filled. You don't want to drink old nasty bathing water, do you? Neither do they.



What a title, eh?! : )

Well, here's why; mt fav snack-type of a quicky lunch is a grilled cheese... I know, right?!

BUT, I didn't have any tomato soup to compliment it, so I had a tablespoon of peanut butter to kick-start my tastebuds, and proceeded to make the sandwich anyway.

2 slices of whole wheat bread, 2 slices of American cheese and one fat pat of butter for grilling (yea, it's my cheat meal).

On the side I have a mug of hot green tea, one-half of a banana left over from yesterday morning's cereal, a half-packet of craisins (the birds got the other half - see next blog), and a small palm-full of walnuts (good brain food). Here's what it all looks like : )

YOUR goal for today: Look up why certain fruits have the look they do in relation to what body part they help! : ) ex: walnuts/the brain


January 06, 2011


For breakfast I had oatmeal with honey, cinnamon and a pat of butter, coffee, and my vitamins, I always forget to mention those. (checkout sundownnaturals.com for coupons to use in your
local store. I was not paid to endorse them I happen to be using them right now).

Lunch is a small wheat tortilla, a tablespoon of Bertolli spag sauce, turkey pepperoni, oregano, and Mex Cheese mix. I started to put baby spinach on top, but will save that for my smoothie later. I toasted it in the toaster oven. It got a tad singed b/c I forgot to reduce the timer. I'm use to toasting bread, and this is much thinner. For my drink I had an "Arizona Diet Green Tea with Ginseng".

Supper will be chicken strips, mac n cheese and some type of beans.

Call someone today you haven't talked to in a while, just to catch up : )

Enjoy your day!

My better-for-you foods for Wednesday

The picture of my lunch didn't turn out good at all so I'm skipping a photo today.

Breakfast was coffee and a piece of toasted wheat with honey.

Lunch is a large salad of washed & chopped iceberg lettuce, baby spinach and red cabbage. A little bit of white onion chopped, a small tomato peeled and chopped, feta and Greek Dressing. YUMMY!

Check the previous post for what my afternoon snack will be (nuts/fruits).

Supper will be fresh chicken breasts with spices (oregano, rosemary, seasoning salt, basil). It's been soaking in those and some olive oil overnight. I'll probably make a stir-fry out of it or maybe some brown rice on the side cooked in chicken broth. Not sure what else yet. I'll try to remember to take a pic and post it in here.

Have a healthy day!

It's amazing what an Apricot can do!


So part of the Dr. Oz "rethink your diet" plan (my name for it) is to pick up items like dried apricots, slivered almonds and the like.

After eating two dried apricots, I no longer crave chocolate.

Now for those of you who actually know me, you're thinking, "NO WAY!?"

Yes way, I swear. The sweetness of them, combined with the tartness actually STOPS my craving for something chocolaty. Even thinking 'chocolate', and writing the word 'chocolate' does not make me want any, in the least, I swear!

So if you're ever in the NEED for chocolate (like right now, maybe), stop by the store and pick up a bag of Sun-Maid Mediterranean Apricots. (they did not ask me to endorse them, it just happens to be the ones I am eating! I would love some coupons, Sun-Maid! HINT HINT)

As soon as you get to the car, pop one in. Eat another a few moments later and "whammo". No more craving!!

Another thing I like to do is mix 1 TEASPOON of Golden Raisins with 1 TEASPOON of slivered almonds and 1 TEASPOON of walnuts broken up, and 1 TEASPOON chocolate chips. ("TEASPOON" = DO NOT USE MORE THAN A TEASPOON, DARN IT!)
This is a snack I like during the late afternoon or evening. It helps me from eating way too much at supper, or scrounging for a really bad-for-me dessert!

A huge glass of green tea or large mug of hot green tea (Melaleuca brand) before any meal also helps with filling up the tummy with GOOD stuff.

So, off to the store with ya. You're welcome ; )

Back to the new way of eating this week! (Dr Oz)

I started a Dr. Oz 'diet' a few weeks ago and was doing very well my first two weeks; I bought everything I needed for the new meals for two weeks, got some crappy food out of the house and was actually enjoying new flavors and a new way of cooking.
I got slack because of not having the right items in my house this last week. Plus my friend and her daughter came down for a few days so I didn't feel right 'making' them eat what I was suppose to be eating. So it got pushed to the side while all four of us ate some not-so-good-foods as well as stuff that was just not necessary.
So this morning, I got right back into the "diet" because I had bought a couple of little things over the last week so this week would be easier.
This morning I had ONE piece of wheat toast with 1 tsp of (healthy) peanut butter, and 1 whole red apple, cleaned and sliced.
Lunch is a toasted wheat English muffin with a Boca Veggie burger (I had a Boca chicken patty), 1 tsp marinara sauce, lettuce (I use baby spinach washed well), sliced tomato, red onion (I had white onion already cut up in the fridge), a little pepper, and a little oregano. YUMMY : )
I can't wait to pick a meal for tonight. It will involve fresh chicken. Maybe I will do strips pan-cooked in chili olive oil and some honey. That's always a hit.


The plate is now empty ; )

Would you like to see a daily posting with a pic from one of my meals? Comment!
