Asparagus Cheese Soup

I don't about all of you, but I love those creamy soups in the winter time. They just seem to make the cold days seem a little warmer. So this asparagus cheese soup is perfect for a cold winter day.

Here's What You Need

4 Tbsp butter
1/2 onion diced
1 can green beans
1 can of potatoes
1/2 lb mushrooms
1 clove chopped garlic
2 cups milk
2 cups chicken stock
8 oz cream cheese
16 oz shredded cheddar cheese

Here's What You Do

Place the butter in a stock pot. Heat the butter and add the onion and garlic. After a couple of minutes add the mushrooms. Add the beans, the potatoes, the chicken stock. Add the milk and continue to cook for another 10 minutes. Then add the cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Once the cheese is melted the soup is ready to serve.

The Settlers of Catan

I recently read the book The Settlers of Catan by Rebecca Gable. The book isn't new, but I wanted to share my thoughts about it with everyone.

The Book

First this book is based on a board game. I wondered how that would work. I have never played the game, but it sounded interesting. The story follows a group of individuals who leave their homeland where they are facing difficulties due to raiders and weather. Their journey is a gamble. And they face huge struggles as they travel to the new land.

They find that when hey arrive in their new home that there are things that they wish to change about their culture. But the community is divided in how it wants to develop.

What I Think

I really enjoyed reading this book. The story kept me involved throughout the entire book. It was a little long, but I really like how it showed how cultures develop. I really like how each character in the book mirrors so many of the individuals we see in the world around us. The book reminded of the series by Auel. And then it reminded me of the show Survivor.

Who Should Read This Book

If you are a fan of the game, you will probably enjoy this book. If you enjoy historical fiction, you will probably enjoy this book. As I stated earlier in the review the book did remind of the Earth Children series by Auel. There is exploration in this book like the one in that series. And it is also the story of a culture evolving into something different.

All of the opinions expressed in this post are mine, and I did not receive any form of compensation for this review.

Boho Fabric Bracelet Do It Yourself

I've always been attracted to the Boho Style. It's colorful and fairly carefree. In other words it kind of fits my personality.

I've seen pictures of fabric Boho bracelets all over the internet. I decided to try making one for myself. If you remember my thrifty finds post from earlier this week. You will remember the blue silk scarf.
I promised that you would see that scarf again. And today you are.
The scarf was only fifty cents, so how could I go wrong with that purchase. And I had some aluminum beads around the house. I decided to get to work.
 I took the scarf and cut off three strips. I thought that I wouldn't need a needle to thread the fabric through the bead since it had a large hole, but I had to get out that needle to make it work.
I tied knots to keep the beads in place. It is just that simple. And I have a Boho bracelet that cost me less than a $1.

Post Christmas Wish List

Christmas is over, and it is time to give up that shopping for others. And begin shopping for myself. It's not like I didn't do any of that during the Christmas season. But as I was shopping, I found so many things that I wanted for myself. Here are a few of those items.

Raccoons are adorable, but they are a menace. Remember my Those Bandits Stole My Thunder last summer? This T Shirt reminded me of them. And I want it!
Diamonds may be a girls best friend, but I really like the different colors of many of the other precious stones. The red and gold of this ring are fabulous. And I love the way the band of the ring has some texture.
I've been doing this mixed media art. Stamping makes some of it easier. I love the floral designs on the stamps would be great for some of the ideas I have.
So I thought I needed to add something just a little cute to my accessory stash. And who doesn't need a Pegasus unicorn?
No, there is no practical use for this wig, but who needs practicality? I'm sure that I would find something to do with it.

So what do you think of my shopping list? And what post holiday items do you want to purchase?

Earlier this month, I went to the annual scarfbombing that is held by individuals in the city to raise awareness of homelessness. It's a chance for individuals to give just a little to those individuals who don't have a home. It's a chance to give them some basics that they need during the winter.

Scarfbombing is so simple to do. All you have to do is go out and tie a scarf around a tree. It will be available for anyone to take the scarf that needs it. It looks a little something like this.

Sceptics say these events do very little for the homeless. That may or may not be true. But it does encourage individuals to become more involved in their communities. And it also encourages individuals to be givers. And it encourages individuals to be a little more kind. And doesn't the world need a little more kindness?

I Just Gotta Get Out Of Here

We all have a fight or flight response. But some of us are a little more comfortable with one or the other. Personally, I am kind of a flight person. Yes, I do love to avoid a problem. And I was reminded of this the other night.

This is what happened. I was at work. Yes, so many of these incidents seem to happen at work. And a supervisor told me to do something. And I knew that the supervisor was trying to work their way around the rules of what is allowed. She wanted to violate the union's contract. And the worst part of it was she knew what she was doing.

I thought to myself you little conniver. And I knew that if I refused there would be trouble. I would be insubordinate. So, I decided to do what the union instructs us to do in these situations. Follow the instructions and then go to the union.

But as I was doing this, I thought to myself. I'm going to get out of here. And I came to understand that my response is not to fight, but it is to flee.

The situation has resolved itself. And everything is okay, but I still don't want to have to deal with it.

How do you handle situations that involve conflict? Do you fight or do you flee?

Santa's Christmas Float

Dear Santa

This year I decided to leave you a little something different with your Christmas cookies. I decided that you may actually be tired of drinking all of that milk and cocoa. So I decided to leave you a float. It's just really cheery, and festive looking. And let's face it, I'm looking for a little edge over the people you are providing presents to this year. So here is your treat, and I'll leave the recipe in case you want to share it with Mrs. Claus.

Here's What You Need

Strawberry Soda
Lime Sherbet

Here's What You Do

Pour the soda in a mug. Then dump a couple scoops of the sherbet into the soda. It tastes fabulous!

Thrifty Finds 2

It's time to take a look at some more of those thrifty finds. As a friend of mine told me the other day, my thrifting addiction could be much worse. I could be addicted to heroin. She's right. So here are a few of the great finds of the week.
So anyone who has seen my thrifty finds posts knows I am a sucker for bags. And one with a blue background and a Harper's 1922 theme is one for me. I love it. It's sturdy, and it is coming in useful. I really love the black little top along with the circles. I have an outfit planned for this top. There is a Valentine's pillow, which I know will come in handy in the nest month or so. And you will see those snowflakes again soon. And that green thing is a squirt gun. All cool finds.
There is a grey shirt that I was looking for. And of course I have a plan for it. Hopefully, it will turn out as well as I see it in my mind. That scarf is silk, but it has seen better days. It will show up again. And I absolutely loved the material in that little outfit. The bowl and angel were just impulse purchases. But who doesn't need a bowl?
Light blue lace is always useful to have around isn't it? And I needed some pajama bottoms so those fluffy white pj bottoms with stars were a great find. And while the slippers won't fit me those little Hello Kitty patches on them will be useful. You can never pass up Hello Kitty finds.
Okay we all know I love shoes. Those zebra stripe ones are too big, but they are way cute. They were cheap, and there is a project that I've wanted to try for a while with shoes. So these will fit in. I found paint and ink what a treasure. It cost less than half of what it would at the craft store. Children's books are great for those crafty projects I do. And well I loved the jewelry. I have a couple of outfits they will go with.

So what do you think of my finds? And what would you do with the items?

Soil Vs. Dirt What's The Difference?

Last week I started a new series called What's The Difference? Last week I talked about tea lights and votive candles. This week I am going to take a look at the difference between soil vs. dirt.

For most of us don't know or care about the difference between soil and dirt, but believe it or not there is a big difference.

Soil is a living thing. Really it is! Soil is full of microbes that are alive. It's kind of a complex system that functions pretty well without the assistance of humans. And it's all over the world.

Dirt is displaced soil. How does it get displaced? Humans are the culprit. We toil the soil and loosen up the eco-system of the soil. The dirt moves away through erosion, footsteps or the wind. And when it is displaced it doesn't have all it needs for the living organism of soil.

Now, you know the difference.

The Most Wonderful Time Of Year

Christmas is a busy time of year. It is also The Most Wonderful Time Of Year. Ace Collins has put out a book that focuses on this time of year.

This book is great for the month of December. It has a short devotional each day, which is followed by activities for the each day of the month. They include recipes, crafts, and ideas to pamper yourself. I really like this combination. It gave me time to think about some of the things I read while I was completing a task. And many of the crafts make great DIY gifts.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who is looking to survive the month of December. And it could be read any month with 31 days. You could celebrate Christmas in July.

I did receive a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Running On Empty

Today I'm really fortunate to have a guest post by Rachel Tucker. Rachel is the author of The Woman At The Well.

Have you had a time when you have run on empty and how did you fill up again? by Rachel Tucker

This is interesting, as my husband and I were just talking about this, during our Bible study time together. When you do ministry, you can run on empty a lot!! This is why it's important to have your priorities straight and top on the list is taking care of YOU. Just yesterday, I was talking my husband off a ledge, so to speak. Him and I are polar opposites. I wake up and see the world abundant, have an unwavering faith and don't really worry about anything. My husband on the other hand.....he sees the world, "glass half empty" worries about things that will never happen, and constantly doubts himself. So I spent a good amount of time yesterday morning, trying to affirm him and our Father in heaven's plans for him. It drained me, completely. But, I'm all fueled back up today. I start my day with Jesus and he fills me and reminds me of His future for me daily. 

I am very particular about who I spend my time with, meaning I spend time with people who make me feel good, bring good energy, not the ones that you feel drained after you have left them. THIS IS SO IMPORTANT! 

Also, taking care of you means, doing your exercise of choice, getting 7-9 hours of sleep everyday, eating good Whole Foods, and lots and lots of water. Meditation is something that I do as a staple also! I love to do Yoga, and this is where I do my meditation also! 

Some women have this warped view that they must take care of everyone, but, not put their name top on the list. You are not doing anyone any favors by doing this. What happens when you break down and get have now become a burden. It is not selfish to take care of you first, it is actually saying, "I love you this much!"

Are you ready for a rigorous spiritual bootcamp? This 4-week intensive Bible Study is about a journey of self discovery. One that will incite and ignite something amazing and wonderful in you. This is the story of how one person's transformation can create a massive wave of change for Jesus Christ in the world.

Silence Interupted

The Book

Two months before Troye Saavedra’s senior year of high school, his father’s drinking problem skyrockets. When Troye’s parents make an impulsive move to Georgia in order to “help” him finish high school on a positive note, he is forced to leave behind everything he knows. Things couldn’t get worse for Troye. That is, until he meets three enigmatic teenagers: Adelaide, an independent violinist with radical ideas; Zaidan, fiercely loyal and always funny; and Arabella, a girl who harbors secret struggles. Together, the four friends try to pick up the jagged pieces of their lives without getting hurt themselves. An insightful tale of perseverance, Silence Interrupted is a young adult novel about the beauty and peril of traversing the world as a teenager.

The Author

Sania Shaikh is a junior at Cambridge High School. Inspired to write from a young age, she worked on Silence Interrupted, her debut novel, starting in eighth grade.

Things That Have Made The Week Fabulous

I was looking at my posts and thinking that it's been awhile since I posted about all the good things in my life. Well it's about time that I shared what has made this week fabulous.

My goal for the month of December was simply to survive the month of December. That was due to the fact that we normally work loads of overtime in the month of December. But so far I have only had to work a couple of hours of overtime. It's been wonderful. There will be a little extra money in my check, and I am not experiencing the exhaustion I do sometimes. Some of the days have been rough, but I have been able to go home on time so far. Hurray!

I have thoroughly enjoy the Lush products I just couldn't resist when I had a shopping spree earlier. They are a little pricy, but man they sure are wonderful! I absolutely love that Shoot For The Stars bath bomb. How do they get such rich colors in those bombs?

I am so thankful for the weirdest thing. I am thankful for long underwear. With this polar vortex that has been bearing down on us recently, I am so thankful I was able to find my long underwear and it has been keeping me toasty warm on these cold days.

I scored some really great wrapping paper a couple of weeks ago when I was out shopping. I love the bright reds in the paper I bought. And I love that this is glitter in the one roll. It looks kind of like a candy cane.

I really am thankful for children's books. I love looking at the pictures in them. And I love the simplicity of the stories. I know it's strange, but I truly do enjoy reading through them every once and a while. I always pick one up when I'm at the library. And I'm never disappointed with the books.

That little voice that tells you to shut up sometimes. There was an incident a few days ago, where I just wanted to tell someone exactly what I thought. And what I thought wasn't very complimentary. I'm glad that I decided to think about what I said instead of letting whatever pop out of my mouth. I think it saved me some trouble in the long run.

Christmas Wrapping Paper

Leave it to a cat to be in the one place you don't want them to be when you are wrapping Christmas gifts.

When Jesus Was a Green Eyed Brunette

Once again, I received a book to review. The book is When Jesus Was a Green Eyed Brunette by Max Davis.

The Book

In this book the author reminds us that we are all unique creatures that God created. There is nobody else like you on the planet. And he reminds us that this is the way God intended it to be. He encourages us to not be people pleasers, but to please God. That is much easier said than done. But the book brings together real life stories to encourage us to move toward the goal.

What I Think

I really liked that this book encourages individuals to be themselves. He doesn't encourage us to be selfish, but he encourages individuals to be the person that God intended them to be. And I like how he draws all of the individuals stories together. This is a good book for individuals who want to have a better life.


I did receive a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Are Things The Way They Are Reported?

We've all heard the reports from the past couple of weeks. The ones about the man who went to the pizza joint with a gun because social media reported that there was a nest of child slaves. It's scary isn't it? But is it anything new? Well, yes, in a way, social media didn't exist 25 years ago. But something big did.

There were newspapers. And of course there were television news broadcasts. But did they always report things the way they happened?

In March 1964, there was a murder. A young woman named Kitty Genovese was murdered. The story was reported by all of the major media outlets. The reports were that 38 individuals had witnessed the crime, but none had called the police to help the young woman.

The story has been studied in colleges. It was the reason for the 911 system being activated. But was what was reported what really happened?

Kitty's brother decided to find out more about what happened. And he found that the story made everyone believe that his sister died all alone. But he met one of Kitty's friends, who as soon as she found out that Kitty was injured ran from her apartment. She raced to Kitty's side. She was with Kitty when she died.

And when he read through the trial manuscripts, he found that one of the neighbors had yelled out the window telling Kitty's attacker to leave her alone. The attacker did leave for a period of time. The man thought the situation was resolved. So he didn't need to go check.

There were things that were left out of the news report. The story wasn't totally accurate. And I wonder how many other stories that we read and hear about have left out some details that make us look at a situation differently.

I Just Can't Resist

There's a store in our mall that I just can't enter. I avoid it like the plague. It's not because I don't like their products. It's just that no matter how hard I try. I just can't resist some of the products they sell.

You see whenever I enter Macy's I tell myself. This time I will not buy any Lush products. Or at the very least I will only buy one bath bomb. But then I get to that section of the store. There are so many wonderful items. I love them all.

I tell myself as I enter that area just one. I will just buy one bath bomb. And then I see the colors. I smell the delightful scents. And I start grabbing things. I tell myself well I could get two things if I really want. And then before I know it, I am going to the counter. I am asking the sales person if they could hold onto the items I have in my hands while I keep looking. And before you know it, I have all of this.
I just couldn't exist the snow fairy and sugar plum fairy products. I'll let you know what I think of them in the future.

What Your Tires Have To Say

Believe it or not your tires have a lot to say. They have needs you know. I know that I often haven't listened to what they have said. And here are a few things you really should know about your tires.

The Facts

There is a lot of information about your tire printed on the sidewall of the tire. It tells when and where it was made. You might need to know that at some point in time. That means you don't have to rely on your mechanic tell you all of the information.


It really is important for you to know how old your tires are. In my case it is a general age. I think I bought those a year ago is what I tell the mechanics. But the life span of most tires is 10 years.


When I was younger, a friend of mine told his sister that she needed to replace the winter air in her car for spring air. She went to the gas station let the air out of her tires and refilled them. Yes, it really happened. But tires have a sweet spot with amount of air they like. Not too much and not too little they like things just right. You can find the information in the car manual you get with the car. I always keep it in the glove compartment. It is not a well read book though.


They do like a change of pace. So it is important to rotate the tires so that they wear evenly. And they will then last longer. This saves you money in the end.


Once your tires have been retired by your mechanic. Make sure that you pay the extra fee to have them recycled. They can live on in shoes soles and other products.

So what are your tires trying to tell you?

That Last Minute Gift

Have you ever had those times when you are going to a party, and you realize. I don't have a gift for that hostess. It's too late to run to the store and pick anything up. And of course it's really too bake anything. What do you do? You throw together a last minute gift with items you have around the house.


Go through your cupboards. Most of us have a nice coffee mug in the cupboard. Then pull out coffee and tea packets that you have around the house.


Place the items in the cup. Make sure you have at least a couple of different items for the cup. And make sure the cup is full.


Wrap the gift in some festive paper. And tie some ribbon around the paper. Since the wrapping paper had a candy cane theme, I added a small candy cane ornament that I had picked up at a thrift shop during a thrifting venture.

Now you won't have to go to that part empty handed. You have a small gift for the hostess.

So What's The Difference?

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between some products? You kind of have a vague idea, but all you could do is give a one or two word description of the item. So I decided that possibly we should learn the difference. This is going to be an on again off again series. And I'm going to start with an item that will be in many a Christmas gift this year. There will be votive and tea light candles what is the real difference?

Votive Candles

A votive is a candle that is a couple of inches tall and burns about 12 hours. And we all know that you have to put one of these babies in a holder, or you will have a mess.

Tea Lights

Those little tea lights are much easier to deal with. They are smaller, and they only burn for 6 hours. But there is much less to clean up. They are self contained.

Candle Safety Tips

Because candles involve fire always remember that you need to place them on a safe container. Have any of you had the experience of putting a candle on a counter top, and the candle burns too hot? Yep, you end up with a slight burn ring if you do this. It's not pretty.

Santa's Suit

Christmas is all about giving. And Santa is the one who gives the most each year. Recently, I visited The Festival of Gingerbread. I visited last year and you can take a look at some of the over the top Gingerbread House creations by following the link.

But the Santa Suit that was worn by a popular local Santa caught my eye this year. I thought about Santa and all of his work. And I was really glad that this Santa suit was saved. And the man who played Santa got some recognition.

Those Videos I've Been Watching

It's been a while since I've shared the videos, and movies I've been watching. Here are three of the videos I spent time watching this past week.

Television Under the Swastica

When I saw the title for this one, I was like this has to be some alternate history sci-fi thing. It sounded kind of interesting. But then I realized it is a documentary.  I decided to check it out. Believe it or not, the first regular television broadcasts were in Nazi Germany. The televisions weren't in everyone's home like they are now. They were in salons where people went to watch the broadcasts. It's a weird documentary, and as I watched it I wondered what would they have done with television broadcasts like we have today.

The Mighty Boosh

How did I miss this show when it first came out? It is so weird, I love it! The life of zookeepers is the storyline. The stories are a little surreal, and I love the characters. The king of the mods is my current favorite. I must watch the rest of the series.

Elfen Lied

I still can't decide whether or not I really liked this anime series. A new step in the evolution of humans is part of this story. Children with horns are born, and they are dangerous. So humans respond the way they always do, they decide to kill them. And then there are a few that they use as guinea pigs. I really liked the beginning of the show. The intro has Gustav Klimt like scenes of the characters. That artwork is pretty interesting. The part I didn't like was the ending. But you can watch it and see if it is something you might be interested in.

Thrifting Finds

Oh, once again, I couldn't resist the urge to go thrifting. And here are some of the finds from that thrifting excursion.
I found that absolutely fabulous angel t-shirt. It has angel wings on the back of the shirt. It's adorable. And that pillow has some snags, but I thought all of the items could be repurposed. So I'll have to figure out how I am going to reuse the beads and the fabric. And then there is that red tin, how could I resist?
I absolutely need another bag like I need a hole in my head. But it was a dollar. And I can use it for more shopping. The little polka dot hat I have big plans for. And well tis the season, you can't have enough ornaments. And there are those blue napkins, which I am sure will turn up in some pictures of food.
Yes, there is another crocheted bag in there. And that yellow lace is something I really loved on that top. I have plans on ways to recycle that top. And does anybody else remember when those palm tree pictures were popular? I never really liked them when they were popular. But I wondered how the picture would look if it was in some different colors. It is a really cheap experiment, I have planned. And of course I need more blue in my life so that plate jumped into my cart.
Last but not least, I picked up a couple of belts, a children's skirt, a really colorful scarf, and a dolls and toys pattern book. Yeah, you bet there are plans for most of these. That brown belt is something I actually needed for an outfit.

So what do you think of my finds, and how you recycle and re use them?

Lab Grown Or Natural?

I was listening to the news the other day, and there was a story that caught my attention. It was all about lab grown diamonds. I had mixed feelings when I listened to the story.

The First Reaction

Yes, the price of diamonds is going to make those big stones much more affordable. I'll be able to get a diamond necklace, bracelet, and ear rings. I could afford some of those pieces of jewelry I always dreamt about. If I were to buy diamonds, I wouldn't have to worry if they were mined by a child in a war zone. I wouldn't have to worry if the money I spent was funding a war. A huge ethical problem is solved in that situation.

My Second Reaction

Then the diamond expert in the report stated that he could tell the difference between natural and grown diamonds. He stated they are much better now, but when they first came out they had a slight yellowish tint about them. It made me think. Is something that took thousands of years to create really reproducible? Can we actually reproduce that true beauty?

The Answer

While it may be possible for me to afford that jewelry now, I think that I would rather have the real thing. I mean isn't that what makes diamonds so valuable? The fact that they are truly difficult to find? So to me the natural is much better.
