New meaning to Children Should Be Seen but Not Heard

     The phrase Children Should Be Seen and Not Heard dates back to 1450.  This opinion was actually recorded in a collection of homilies attibuted to an Augustian clergyman in Mirk's Festival:
A mayde schuld be seen, but not herd.
Who would imagine over 600 years later this concept would still be continued? IF I had not seen it multiple times in play this past weekend I wouldn't believe it myself.

Losing Fat Loving Food: Friday April 19th

  Last night I got to see the results of my newly added activity of daily walking.  I saw the effect that had on my goal of 52 pounds before June 21st.  After two weeks of watching the scale stay still I finally saw it move, and in the right direction!!

Victoria and Albert Part 1

     After four months of anticipation we dined at Victoria and Albert's this past Saturday.  Unlike most moments of expectation in my life I was beyond thrilled with every experience the evening brought. I am going to try to do the very best I can to recreate our glorious evening for you.  Warning: You may want to have a snack and drink nearby as your mouth will be watering.

Losing Fat Loving Food Friday 4/5

     Someone needs to explain to me how your weight can stay exactly the same?  I somehow consumed the exact amount of calories that I burned?  Well pin a rose on my nose as I must be a calorie-math-magician.  I was hoping for at least one pound with my glorious dinner at Victoria and Albert's this Saturday>>>>>>>>TOMORROW!!!  But let's talk about this week.

Don't Blame ME~ I Saw It on Pinterest

     When my husband arrived home from work the other night the last thing he expected to see was our front yard piled high with Crepe Myrtle branches.  He knew they couldn't have come from our trees especially there were close to over hundred 8' and longer branches piled high and wide.  After climbing over the mess blocking the garage and trying to figure out what the four different piles I had of various cut branches could possibly mean I smiled and told him "It's for a project I saw on Pinterest!"

Fred and Ginger

     What images do the names Fred and Ginger conjure?  If you're over the age of 20 it should create visions of two incredible dancers from the days of Hollywood royalty and big production numbers. If you are under the age of 20 and you don't know who these people are yell at your parents for they truly dropped the ball. Though my daughter's first response was the Harry Potter twins as one is named Fred and they are Gingers (red-heads).

3,000 Chicks and I Didn't Buy Any!

              Gator Family Tractor Supply in Starke has an annual Chick Day. This year they were receiving 3,000 chicks.  I have been planning on attending this event since learning about it last month.  The plan was to be there at 9am so we could experience the chick craziness the owners told me about.  Hubby said the only thing I could bring home was pictures.
