Growing up, my husband had a small book in his collection called “Happiness is….a warm blanket.” The book was based on characters from the Peanuts cartoon. I’m not quite sure why he loved the book, but I loved the book because it celebrated the little things in life!  It DIDN’T say happiness is winning the […]

    Happy first few days of Fall!!  I have been loving the slow transition from Summer to Fall.  In Wisconsin, many times we enjoy the Summer temperatures, have about a week of comfortable Fall weather and then plummet right into Winter.  This year has been great for me!!   Our college son made an […]

Yes, I know this post is going up a day late.  Better late than never, right??  All because of this thing called a “hard drive” that went bad….that’s why this post is late.  I’m so happy to have my computer back now!!! It’s back to school week in Wisconsin!  We said “good bye for now” […]

Crock-Pot Applesauce!


It all started when my realtor suggested I should buy some green apples, gather them in a bowl and display them on the island of our kitchen.  I obliged, the pictures of the house were taken, and there I was left with 17 green apples in a bowl in the kitchen. My mind quickly went […]
