Burrito mix

In my little kitchen this month, I concocted a delicious, frugal yet filling supper to feed a crowd.  I had two of my children and three of my grandchildren sharing this one, and there was still plenty leftover to pack in husband’s lunch the next day.  Here is the recipe (I loved it so much, I added it to my journal for future reference).  Enjoy.

Words, words, words…

imageThe English language is often lacking in words to describe one’s state of mind, deep feelings or ideas.  Lucky for us, other languages do a much better job at verbalizing these for us, and I found a list that I can see myself referencing many times in the future.  How nice it is to have a word for “the inconsolable longing in the human heart for we know not what; A yearning for a far, familiar, non-earthly land one can identify as one’s home.  (Sehnsucht (n) Origin:  German)

Check out the rest of the words, and see if you can relate at all to any of them.  I wrote down my favorites in my journal to keep on hand…in fact, I think I found the perfect word to call my journal, LOL…Vagary (n) Origin: Latin – An unpredictable instance; a wandering journey; A whimsical, wild, or unusual idea, desire, or action.

What I’ve been up to in my spare time

wpid-IMG_20131119_152848.jpgMade my own daily and weekly dockets…laminated and ready to use…now need to find good wipe off markers.  You like?

I”ve used a planner on and off since I was a young Momma, but have never found one that really suits me.  I was looking again online the other day and saw how several people had made their own, and I thought “My gosh…I could do that!”  So…here they are.  Because I hate to buy things to throw away, I laminated daily on one side, weekly on the flip side.  I’ll purchase a generic monthly calendar, if I can find one that starts with Sunday…if not,,,maybe Ill make a matching one for my set.
