Reading a post on food I found that my glorious home actually is also the home of the chocolate brownie! OMG that’s awesome! I love it.

Maine is, tough on everything in the winter, can’t say I care much for most of the political party, the summers suck most of the time, you blink and the weather changes, granted it’s beautiful and the wildlife is inspiring but so is Mass. But, But, we got the chocolate brownie!!!

Amazing non dairy dessert

Finally I found something I really like! This new non dairy life style has become increasingly depressing. I never knew how much dairy was used in everything till I had to start paying attention.

If I could cook maybe it wouldn’t be so bad but, I suck at cooking and really hate it! I miss so many of my favorite foods, I have tried alternatives but it just isn’t the same.

Again, for the first time….

the people who have been reading me since the beginning of 2017 have probably got tired of the phrase,“For the first time!” I have had so many I can’t count them all and I thought that had to be it but I never should have doubted my husband. So , once again, for the first time in so long I can’t remember, I was so wrapped up in my family and what they were doing around me that I didn’t take one picture!!! Now I have always over done it with the pictures, like, taking fifty pictures of my grandkids playing in the snow. Always have had pictures of the boys opening stuff and reactions but not this year. I can’t even believe it!! And , yes, another!!! My husband made all of xmas dinner himself. Never before have I not done it myself, I am not talking about just doing the potatoes or opening all the cans kind of thing, but from the ham to the pumpkin pie, he did it all and I didn’t get any pictures!!!!! It was great, everything came out just right. Once again he has out done himself.

Ibotta review

So, usually don’t recommend any of these but,,, I was totally unprepared when I did a quick stop at the store, opened the app in my truck, clicked on a few things and then went in, after I just uploaded my receipt and BOOM, 9.25 in cash back!! Ya me!! Lol. I actually really like this app, its an easy to use, cash back rewards app. David has it on his phone as well so we earn together. I have to say I am impressed.
