Mac pointed out that I was a writer, so I should be recommending books. How right he is! And I have just the book this week to recommend.

Coming soon!

Venture into the dark if you dare.

***********************************

I managed a full week of blogging and writing and that feels good. I have a friendly dragon who gives me a kick in the pants when I whine too much. Writing is a habit. Breaking that habit and calling it writer's block is a cop out. 

There, if you're not writing, I am passing along the dragon kick.        

Thanks, Al!

What to make for dinner is a question that get old. I never have many good ideas, unless I get one from Jo's blog. Or an idea from the many different newsletters I'm signed up for.
I just signed up for Tbsp. Quick and Easy Recipes. What I'm loving about this one is that the newsletter pairs recipes with printable coupons...if you're one to clip coupons. As the mother of four boys, I can easily spend $300 a week on food if I don't pre-plan and budget shop, so coupons are my friend.



That's my small things check-in. Thanks to our hosts LexaL  .G, and Tonja Drecker for this weekly reminder to look for the good things in life! What good things are new with you? 





FULL DARK is a benefit anthology. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Gary Sinise Foundation, an organization that does many wonderful things for our country's active military, its veterans, and the countless first responders who sacrifice so much to keep us safe.

  1. Looking forward to Full Dark.
    Yes, that dragon can kick butt, can't he? Send a problem to the Fellowship and you will get a dragon-sized reply.

  8. I try and cook different things all the time. My lunches get a bit boring, they don't change a lot, but in my mind there is nothing worse than boring food. Hubby eats the same cereal every morning. Couldn't do it. I hope Full Dark is successful

    1. I like a variety too, but I'm in a real pickle most days because I really don't enjoy cooking. If I didn't have a family to feed, I'd probably eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for every meal.

    1. We can all use a dragon kick every now and then.

      You have a great new week too.

  13. The anthology is going to be a great one! Looking forward to the release. The dragon kick, I'll need to be careful of that. Does he follow up by lighting a fire under your butt if you don't start writing quick enough?

    1. I've been reading the stories...lots of goodness under one cover.

      I believe the dragon would happily light up my butt if I didn't snap out of it.

  14. I miss out about hearing about these anthologies during the submission phase. Darn. It looks really good. A great collect of authors. :)

  15. A dragon kick in the butt is definitely helpful. I find convenience is king when when it comes to cooking. We're going low carb for a while, so I bought a veggie spiralizer to help lessen the stress. Maybe if I can make a bunch of zoodles in advance, then I won't give up so easily.

    Woot woot on the anthology!

  17. I follow a lot of cooking blogs. I love having new ideas for dinner and if I need I can figuratively throw a dart so I don't have to decide. I'll have to look into the ones with coupons, because bonus!
