Happy New Year!


I don't know what it is about the moon that excites me, especially when we have a blue moon which only happens every 2 and a half years. It is rare that we have a blue moon on New Years Eve, that only happens every 19 years and guess what? This is the year for a blue moon on New Years Eve! Whoa!
Happy New year!

You can listen to the song, Blue Moon by The Drifters, on my playlist to the right, # 42

Calling all bakers!



I've been searching for a cookie recipe that I found in Better Home and Garden magazine from , I think, 1984, or could be 1983...they are called festive cookies.....a cream cheese dough that needs to be refrigerated over night. You split the dough up into 3 parts to make snowmen cookies, crescent cookies and cut-out cookies...used to be my favorite cookie recipe years ago when I was a stay at home mom. Well, this year I decided to make time to bake these cookies again and can't find a copy of that recipe anywhere. I've googled everywhere, but to no avail. hmmm?

A wicked sun


burns the retinas of my eyes...

as the pale moon,


whispers secrets of patience to me.

I love different table settings. Pictured here are tables from my sister-in-law's house and one from my sister's house.
