Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share


Happy Monday!

This peach-colored iris wowed me! I see variations of purple iris all the time, but not many of this hue.

And other miscellany: I use the notes app on my phone A LOT!…just for random stuff.  I recently cleaned out my notes (and stuck a few of them here :o)…so did i really ‘clean’ them out, or is this the equivalent of paper shuffling?

  1. Quote from the book,  The Caliph’s House…page 257:  “…seek out what is not immediately seen. On the surface, the carrot is a mere tuft of green, but under the ground there’s a root waiting to be found.”
  2. A question I heard (or read) somewhere:  “When was the last time you had a defining spiritual experience?”
  3. GOALS (Gaining Opportunities And Life Skills)
  4. “Think to Thank”  and “Observe Then Serve”
  5. “It’s better to be at the bottom of the ladder you want to climb than the top of the one you don’t”.
  6. “Most successful people start with dominant talent and then add skills, knowledge and practice to the mix”.
  7. “All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking”

Have a great day! Do or learn something NEW!


a NEW Delicious Drink…Peach Flavor!


We tried a NEW specialty drink recipe a while ago.  My husband brought the recipe home from work and said, “This tastes just like the specialty drinks at Olive Garden!”   It’s super easy and we tried it with just the Torani flavoring they had at our local grocery store.  But since I’m in love with anything peach, I ordered peach flavoring from amazon and have been making a few PEACH batches this week.   It’s REALLY yummy! Try it!
