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.

Just a Thought…

Peace from Panic


I saw this on Pinterest today and it made me smile. Straight and to the point. If you want something different in your life, take the initiative to make it happen.

Easier said than done. The first steps are the hardest.

Since I had surgery on my foot early March, I’ve had a hard time getting back into exercising on a regular basis. I eat pretty healthy, but I’ve let that slide too. Sometimes it’s so difficult to get motivated. It’s easy to fall into the trap of being lazy.

Last week I finally took control. I weighed myself one morning and promised myself to get back to a consistent healthy lifestyle. I’d like to lose a few pounds, but it really isn’t about that for me. I just want to feel healthier. Stronger, inside and out.

I don’t follow a strict plan, I basically go by this motto: Eat…

Danny’s World: Tired of the Rain

Ok, I am getting tired of all this rain.  I know, I know…it refreshes the world…the flowers need it…blah, blah, blah.  It’s really killing my buzz.

Happy Creative Geek


In the blog post, ‘What blogging is for me‘ I stated some small goals in the end. And it turns out I have achieved two of them!

  • Write ten posts by the end of April  (I had written 8 posts by April and wrote the remaining 2 by May 2)
  • Ten followers  (Yeay! 10 followers by May 4)

It is a small achievement, but I had thought even this would be difficult.

Ten followers? It would take so long…

Thank you so much everyone. 😊

This post is also to tell you that I have decided to have a separate page for goals which will include not only my blogging goals but goals from other areas as well. I call this page The ‘Goals’ List.

Have a nice day. 😊

Bears hibernate in the winter, MS patients hibernate in the summer

Got a wake up call the other day. We went from a comfortable 60° in New York up to  82° overnight.  Silly me, didn’t think anything of it and opened all the windows.  I have roughly 7 windows in my apartment that I…

Today’s Featured Blog is…Pocketful of Smiles!!

When was the last time you did a good deed or a random act of kindness? Do you consider yourself a good person? What does it mean to be a good person?

I feel as though people are misconstrued about this trait. Many may consider themselves a good person based solely on the fact that…

I Will be so Happy and Proud of Myself When I Finish Writing My Memoir (Daily Word Prompt is Chuckle)

My Loud Bipolar Whispers!

My Loud Bipolar Whispers

I sometimes wonder what people truly think when I tell them I am writing a book, a memoir about my life.

People that know me and know part of my story think it is a great idea. Other people who do not know me well or know my story at all sometimes act like they are impressed, but are they really? Some people do not say anything at all.

I believe some people chuckle a little to themselves in disbelief when I tell them I am writing my memoir, thinking it is a stupid idea and that I will never get a book written or published.

When I see negative reactions or non-reactions, I become even more determined to finish writing my memoir and memoirs. I will show them.

When my dreams come true and my memoir is finished, published and being sold, I will be so proud of myself.

I can do it. I must finish…
