Walk Through My Garden Forever

What a wonderful thought in this week’s quote – walking through an endless garden of flowers, created by thinking about your friends.

If I had a flower for every time I thought of you…I could walk through my garden forever.

Grilled Cheese on the Indoor Grill

Our granddaughter (Miss A) came to visit last week, and her favorite lunch is grilled cheese. We had bread and cheese, so I opened the cupboard to get out the frying pan.

Suddenly, I remembered that the best way to make grilled cheese is in the George Foreman indoor grill. You don’t have to flip the sandwich, or worry about burning one of the sides. I’ve never made a bad grilled cheese in the George!

Friendship is the Perfect Gift

I saw this quote from Marian Anderson today, and loved it, so I made a little poster for it. The photo is from Microsoft’s Clip Art collection, and those boys have lovely smiles.

Sometimes we worry too much about shopping for the perfect gift, and end up spending more money than we planned, or can afford.

If you can’t think of the perfect gift for someone, maybe the best gift is just being that person’s friend.

How to Clean Roomba Front Wheel

I’ve had an iRobot Roomba for a few years, and love the way it vacuums my floors. I can keep working on other, more interesting things, while it does the dreary chores. And pretty much anything is more interesting than vacuuming. ;-)

It’s not perfect, because it can’t get into corners or tight spots, but it does 80% of the job, which is good enough for me! Occasionally, I haul out the regular vacuum, and do the corners and other spots, but not too often.
