Danny’s World: Friday!

Image result for its friday gif

I love Fridays.  Tonight Evelina has to work so I think I'm going to hit some golf balls in the cool of the evening.  Tomorrow we have my niece's birthday party and then we are going to a great restaurant for a date night.  This place has the best shrimp n grits I've ever eaten.  I have a couple appointments today and will be sure to stay in the cool air conditioning due to multiple days over 100* in Charlotte.

Stay cool folks and have a great Friday!

Evelina and I are leaving Thursday evening or Friday morning to go to the beach house for a couple of days.  There are 2 things to which I am looking forward: late evening walks on the beach and eating the best fried chicken ever!  There is a grocery store that has a cafeteria line and makes fresh, homemade fried chicken, meatloaf, fried okra, mashed potatoes.  I’m getting hungry just thinking about their food!

Good Friday & Welcome to the first edition of ♥ Snack & Chat ♥ So, grab a snack ( because that’s what we love) and let’s get chatting, shall we ?

Today, I wanted to talk about the necessity ( or is it) of asking beautiful questions to foster beautiful relationships ( friendships, general companionship, romantic, etc). Last Sunday, I read an article by Winn Collier called “Say Something Beautiful” and basically he shares a brief story of a thoughtful & meaningful companionship that was built from asking “beautiful questions”.

What are these beautiful questions ? I’ll share with you a quote from the article “ For a question to be meaningful, it must be genuine. At times we questions not because we care to know a person but rather because we were trying to build our stockpile of knowledge or support the image we want to project. Jesus’ questions…

Rhubarb Cobbler


I’m not much for sweets but every 3 years or so I get a craving for Rhubarb cobbler. My Grandmother and my mom made the best rhubarb pies. This was my grandpa’s favorite. My grandma made the most beautiful crusts. I learned that from her but to be honest I didn’t want to fuss with all of that. My hands wouldn’t have allowed it any way. I find holding on to things like rolling pins for any length of time difficult.

Cobblers are a great alternative and this one is as simple as it gets.
