Day 13

Life is a cake walk for some and digging ditches for others. I’ve been at both ends of the line. Today life is amazing, less ditches and more cake. If I could telepathically send all my life experience and common sense to my children and grandchildren that would be great. How do you share experience… Continue reading Day 13

Day 3

Today we took a mini road trip. We looked at potential towns for relocation. We like our little rental house. Emphasis on the little. One of our 2021 goals is to create an O'Gara Clan estate. Fingers crossed and prayers said. Hopefully this is our year. Our requirements for a new home are: Enough square… Continue reading Day 3

Day 1

I don’t like cooking. Baking I find enjoyable. Today I cooked a huge meal. On the menu: Glazed ham with cherries and pineapple, turnips, mac & cheese, cornbread, potato salad and blackeyed peas. White cake with fluffy white frosting. I have always said cooking is an art and baking is a science. Baking is all… Continue reading Day 1

Today is My mother’s Birthday

My mom Pammy has a birthday today. I know better than to tell you how old she is. Instead, show my mommy some birthday love by taking a look at her art and giving her page a like! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! I love you all around and back around!

Health is more than Flesh and Blood.

It’s not only imperative to teach our children healthy lifestyles for the protection of their bodies but also to protect their hearts and preserve their souls. At the core of all we teach our young, love must be the foundation and truth of all lessons.

Protect What You love

If you value something you keep it safe. You know where it is at all times. If you have jewelery you keep it in an actual safe. If you have a dog or a cat you microchip your pet and keep it safe in a fence or home. What I don't understand is when humans… Continue reading Protect What You love

Traditionally I’m Over It

I want to skip the holiday this week. That would be selfish. Americans love their USA holidays. It’s so much stress and does not fit into my focused simple life plan. My children don’t like traditional Thanksgiving food. Often we serve alternative meals. This year we are, for the first time, going to a restaurant… Continue reading Traditionally I’m Over It

Mini Road-trips

Want to get your family away from screens? Put everyone on the car, go an hour or two from home and pretend your from out of state. My husband sat in the back seat with the kids and I drove. We played music and sang with the radio. Spent he day pretending to be tourists.… Continue reading Mini Road-trips
