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.

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

Vinegar to Remove Sticker Residue

My first vinegar cleaning test involved removing an old sticker and the residue that was on the bottom of a very old glass pitcher. I've had the pitcher in my possession for about 5 years and have no idea the full age of this pitcher. So, it seemed like a good item to try the sticker/residue removal test. In my head, the sticky residue is a germ catcher not to mention a plain old eye sore, so I actually try to get rid of that residue as soon as I remove any sticker myself. The idea is to remove goo from stickers, bumper stickers, labels, decals, etc. by repeatedly wiping with vinegar. So, first, I sprayed vinegar onto the sticker/residue section of the pitcher. I let it sit for about 5 minutes then scrubbed the section with a paper towel and my nail. The sticker part came off rather easily with some umph. I sprayed more vinegar onto the residue that remained and let it stand for another 5 minutes. With a hard push with my nail over the paper towel, most of the residue came off. So
