Monthly Monday Musings ~ February 2017

Happy Monday! Here are a few interesting articles from around the Interwebs. 1. You may have noticed the blogging and mom world has gone crazy with the Instant Pot. If you’re not familiar with this gadget, it’s essentially a crockpot that’s a pressure cooker and can cook meals in record time. The Instant Pot became […]

Monday Musings ~ January 9

Happy Monday! 1. We’ve had a few days of snow in the past month. A lot of people think that we are constantly battling snow being in Indiana. But Terre Haute’s climate is “mild” for the Midwest. We don’t get the snow you see in Wisconsin, Minnesota, or even the East Coast. But I’ve loved […]

Monday Musings ~ December 12

Happy Monday! How are you this second Monday in December? It snowed in Terre Haute last week. Not a huge amount like other parts of the country is getting, but enough to cover the ground and to see snowflakes. It was pretty exciting considering we’ve never lived in snow before. Everything looks so pretty right […]

Monday Musings ~ November 28

Welcome to the one and only Monday Musings for November. The month got away from me. And for the majority of the month, the only articles being circulated were post-election fodder, which I really didn’t feel like sharing. So here we are on the last Monday of November. Let’s start with this photo of cranberry […]

Monday Musings ~ October 31

Fall has always been my favorite season, although  autumn in San Diego wasn’t much different than summer, spring and winter in San Diego. So now that I can experience a real fall […]

Monday Musings ~ September 26

Happy Monday! Not to sound like a cliché, but how is it the last week of September?! 1. Indiana is known as the Crossroads of America, mainly because of the corner of downtown Terre Haute where the nation’s first major north-south and east-west highways intersect. At this historic spot, there are several plaques on the […]

Monday Musings ~ September 12

Happy Monday! 1. The Sycamore Farm barn photo was taken down the street from my house. It reminds me of the children’s board book, The Big Red Barn, by Margaret Wise Brown, which I used to read to Sophie when she was little. She loved that book (still does) and we always had fun trying […]

Monday Musings ~ August 29

Happy Monday! We ate this fresh Indiana corn last week and it was delicious. 1. Are you a Night Owl or a Morning Person? There has never been a doubt in my mind that I am, and always will be, a Night Owl. For as long as I can remember, even as young as in […]
