Ready Set Celebrate


Happy Fourth of July to you and yours. Hope you are gearing up for a great weekend .

Family Reunion time in our clan. I’m preparing fresh veggie platters: Brass Band Bean Platter and Local Heirloom Tomato Platter with herbs, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, slices of fresh mozzarella cheese, yellow beets and olive garnish. I hope pictures and recipes will be upcoming. What are you prepping?

And do you have your week-end reading in hand? I’ve just begun (finally) The Girl On The Train. I’ll say this. It has a terrific opening. We’ll see how the rest of the book goes.

A sincere thank-you to all those who serve in our military! Our lives are enriched by your sacrifice. We celebrate you!

Wishing all the blog readers out there a special week-end. Do tell what’s happening for you!




Thank you readers. I appreciate each and every one of you. Enjoy the holidays with your family. Celebrate your culture and traditions. Do good for others. Worship in a way that is meaningful to you. I join you in praying for all the loved ones you are not able to be with this year, as well as those who join you in celebrations. God Bless!

Here are two classics book suggestions for you to read with the younger members of the family. Enjoy.

The Wild Christmas Reindeer by Jan Brett. Illustrations in beautiful colors are one of the things that make this book special. Santa asks a young girl Teeka to get the reindeer ready for Christmas Eve. Then the fun begins.


Welcome Comfort by Patricia Polacco. This foster child enjoys a special Christmas adventure riding with Santa through the night sky. It’s a unique story that tells what becomes of Welcome Comfort. It will tug at your heart strings.


Both stories can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Jan Brett’s story can be easily adapted during read aloud to include your youngest listeners.

Christmas is a wonderful time for books. What Christmas story do you most like to share?
