Simply Saturday Morning Posts

These Saturday morning posts are simply a potpourri of ramblings. They may include my deep, personal thoughts, essays, or poems, delicious online or label recipes I have tried and want to share, fun or helpful information that I read online or receive in my inbox or mailbox, or insightful or empowering motivations.

My goal for this site is to help women find their connections, inspire hope, create emotionally healthy conversations and well-being - and all through thought, chit-chat, tears, and laughter. As Dolly Parton said in Steel Magnolias, "Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion." In other words, this is where I want you to find yourself and the help you need even beyond my eBooks, work-from-home discussions, and other topics I will bring to the table. 

Visit frequently and join the discussion. Tell us if you have tried and liked or disliked a recipe, tweaks you made to those recipes, what advice is or isn't helpful for you. Your feedback is my inspiration. I need to know what you're enjoying, what you don't like at all, or what you would like to see discussed here.

God has called me to help other women to find some relief in their daily lives - from how to fold a fitted sheet to finding joy in the things we can't escape. And I welcome any advice you may have to offer in comments. Or maybe you want to write a guest post. If so, send me a message via the Contact Form on the right side of this page, and I'll be very happy to send you the guidelines for that. I can't pay for guest posts, but if I'm able to use your post, I'm happy to let you provide a link to your own blog, website, YouTube channel, or whatever link you want to provide. Just one link please. : )

Thanks for visiting today. I hope you have a blessed day.

Being God's Ambassador: Meditation 4

Let's prepare to meditate . Start playing your relaxing sounds/music on another device if you like accompaniment with meditation. With your tissues and water beside you, get in a comfortable sitting position. Close your eyes if you'd like. Now, relax your entire body, starting with your forehead, between your eyebrows, your jaws, your neck and shoulders, your arms and legs. Feel the tension release as you relax. Allow the stomach and shoulders to naturally rise and fall as you slowly breathe in and breathe out. Today's meditation affirmation is "I am created in the image of God. He provides everything I need to be His ambassador." Let's repeat this affirmation to ourselves as we concentrate on our breathing for a few moments.  Continue your slow, concentrated breathing as I guide you through today's meditation. Listen to Meditation 4 . In Genesis 1:26 NLT (New Living Translation), God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” God made u

Love My Granitestone Cookware

I bought my Granitestone cookware June 3, 2023. I loved these right out of the box. Now, after nearly 5 months of use, I'll have to say this is the best cookware I've ever owned. And I've owned lots of cookware since my husband and I got married nearly 35 years ago. I'm actually considering buying one of their knife sets too. If I do, I'll leave a product review on here for those as well.  Granitestone is not paying me for this review. If you know me by now, you know that I started this website to help other women in every aspect of life that I can. Why tell you about this today ? Because I cook our meals nearly every night of the week. And I feel that 5 months is long enough to tell you about these. They haven't warped yet like most cookware does - usually after the first use. These are very heavy duty.  I really like the glass lids so I can watch my meal more closely. These lids are also vented with small holes so I don't have to tilt them to vent. It is d

Idahoan Instant Mashed Potatoes

One of my favorite side dishes to make with a meal is mashed potatoes. One day, a couple of months ago when life was very busy, I just happened to notice these Idahoan  brand instant mashed potatoes with 4 servings in a grocery aisle I was going through. They had a variety of flavors, so I bought several pouches. I wondered if the dried potato flakes could be as tasty as the flavors indicated. And yes, they are to my surprise. I am very impressed. On days when I'm running behind, it's 5:00, dinner should already be served, and I'm not going to be able to start dinner for a while yet, AND mashed potatoes are planned for that meal, this will do quite nicely. Fewer dishes are involved, and it's quick. They are pretty thick, but they don't feel heavy while you're eating them. Very creamy actually.  All you need to do is: Boil 2 cups of water. Pour the boiled water into a heat-proof bowl. Pour in the dried potato flakes.  Stir with a fork until you get a thick, mashe
