This was such an easy question for me to answer. My favorite children’s book hasn’t changed since I was 3 years old.  I can remember my mom or older sisters reading to me and when my mom read  Are You My Mother? by P.D. Eastman my love of books was solidified. I loved that book and have never forgotten about it. In fact, I’ve talked about my love of this book so much over the years that my son & husband found a copy of the book which had the stuffed dog on the cover and bought them for me as part of a birthday present one year. I was thrilled…it was one of the best gifts I’ve ever received, and I still have them on display.

This was a hard one for me because I LOVE finding new recipes and have a lot of favorites to choose from. But, I chose one that I could eat every day. It’s meant to be for breakfast, but I’ve been known to eat it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

California Yogurt Bowl from Heidi Swanson’s blog QUITOKEETO

Spoon one cup of whole milk yogurt into bowl

Top the yogurt with:
a bit of thinly sliced, ripe avocado (I use more than a bit)
1/3 cup lightly smashed boysenberries or blackberries (I use blueberries)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
scant 1/4 cup raw rolled oats
a tiny bit of sea salt, optional
Each bowl serves one

I also add a few tablespoons of flax seed, wheat germ, and walnuts.

This week’s topic: Favorite Game

I’ve played card and board games etc. since I was a little kid, and when my kids were growing up we played games all the time. Our favorite card games were Yahtzee, Uno,  & Skip-Bo. I get together with my kids and grandkids every so often and play games. Recently we played Monopoly Gamer which was a lot of fun.

We’ve played a lot of games over the years that made us all laugh like crazy, but my new favorite is The Game Of Things. We’ve played it at a few get together’s and we’ve never laughed so hard. This will be a favorite for a long time. There are some new question cards out that we haven’t bought yet, but it won’t be very long before we do. If you haven’t played this game, you need to get it ASAP! Laughter is the best medicine!

The Game of Things Humor in a Box! Ages 14 to Adult

Funniest game ever!

I love movies. As much as I love books.  My favorite movie of 2017 was Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. I didn’t think it could be any better than the first one, but it was. A lot better. It was action packed and so funny! And I love Baby Groot!


I also loved A Man Called Ove, you can read my review here. As usual, the movie wasn’t as good as the book, but still, a great movie.

I really should write more reviews for the movies I see.
