It's Wednesday So That Means...

This linkup is called Weekly Lessons & the hosts are Mattie and Lex.  So, if you wanna join in, hope on over to linkup!  :)

Mandie's Weekly Lessons:

  1.  Too many cooks in the kitchen DO ruin the stew.  So, without getting into too many details, too many people got involved in a situation & it exploded all over the place yesterday leaving Trouble & one of my friends hurting.  I am so angry that it got blown up so big when I was going to be the one to take care of it but other people open their damn mouths which caused more of an issue.  I talked with my friend this morning & explained everything from my point to her, told her that I had her back & that I was there for her.  It's going to be a battle for her & I hate that more people got involved than should have been.  Ugh, it just makes me so mad!  

  2.  Bread-makers are only second to crock-pots.  Now, if you're new around these parts, I have a great love for my crock-pot.  I make SO much in it & it really has been a Heaven sent.  After some issues with trying to bake bread for our Souper Sundays, I had enough & bough myself a bread-maker with some mixes.  I made my first loaf on Sunday & it went over really well.  So, my Sundays will now be ruled by the crock-pot of soup & the bread-maker.  Awhoo hoo!

  3.  It's the little things that count.  "K" stopped in the office today before heading off to school & she dropped off some bookmarks that she made for me.  She really made my day & I thanked her many times & told her to have a good day.  She is so sweet!  I love her!  :)


  1. I'm sorry about that situation you're dealing with! Homemade bread...yum! We love to use our crockpot. Those bookmarks are sooo cute! Thanks for linking up!

    1. We'll make our way through the situation, there is no other option but to move forward. Homemade bread is the best...even if the bread maker about 98% of the work. Tee hee!

  2. Oh, I'm totally going to look into getting a breadmaker! That sounds absolutely heavenly!

    1. It is great! I got four different kinds of bread mixes & the potato white went over well, I think that next I'm gonna do the wheat & see how that flies.

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.

My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
