Party in Your PJ’s #196

Party in Your PJ's

Welcome to Party in Your PJ’s #196!

Oh boy, it’s warm here in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia today. As I’m writing it is 79 degrees!  I have the windows all open and a wonderful breeze is passing through.

Here at Grandma and Grandpa’s house, we have sleepovers that include all 4 of our grandchildren that live close by, and we also take turns having them one at a time.  Last night my 5-year-old grandson stayed with us. When Jacob is here it means we play a lot of “pirates” together.  And last night with our popcorn we watched the old Disney movie “Blackbeard’s Ghost” with Dean Jones. It is the cutest movie and Jacob requests it every time it’s his turn to spend the night by himself. Read more….

new penI have a pen fetish!  I have always loved planners, notebooks, paper, pretty much anything office supply related, but mostly pens.  When out shopping together when our children were still at home it was always a joke between them and my husband that if they couldn’t find me, just look in the pen aisle!

I’ve recently found pens that I love so much that I had to share them with you. These pens weren’t given to me to write a review and I wasn’t paid to write a review, I simply want to share them with you because I like using them so much.  Read more….

health informationDo you ever feel completely overwhelmed with all the information bombarding you from social media?

I do!  In fact, when it comes to certain topics I just want to throw up my hands, walk away and give up.

Those certain topics for me are blogging and health information.  Titles like “I made $5000 dollars a month my first year of blogging” make me feel as if I have failed and failed badly.  Then I remind myself that nothing can make me feel like a failure unless I allow it! Read more….

snowman craft

Snow has been rather absent so far this winter in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. We have an inch on the ground right now which will be gone tomorrow, I’m sure!  I would like to see one good snowfall every year, (my husband hates it when I say that), have it last for a few days and then have the temps return to a balmy 50-60 degrees instead of below freezing.

So with actual snow lacking, in order to get our snow fix the grandchildren and I have read some snowman books, including Read more….

This is the chili recipe that I’ve been using for many years.  It’s quick and easy as the name states and I do love quick and easy when it comes to recipes!

There isn’t any chopping required unless you choose to chop fresh onion rather than using frozen.  The prep is basically the time it takes to cook the hamburger and pour in the other ingredients.

Ingredients: Read more….

Are you Feeling SAD?

SAD

Many of us love to see the signs of fall each year and all the things that go along with it…. crisp air, colorful leaves and fall festivals. But what also goes along with it is the shortening of our daylight hours and that can lead to problems.

Now fall has turned into winter and in addition to the shorter days, the temps have been frigid for some of us making it difficult to get outside.

I knew that dreary, cloudy weather and shorter days affected the way I felt and now I know why.  I have Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD. Read more….

One day, about a year and a half ago, I was browsing through an antique store with nothing particular in mind, just looking.  What I found was the frame for a mirror that had been on an antique dresser.  It was just the frame, no glass, nothing else.  But I liked it!  It was only $25 so it became mine!  My thought was to turn it into a chalkboard.

As I’ve mentioned before it often takes quite a bit of time at our house for something to go from being an idea to reality, so a year and a half later, I’ve finally turned my frame into a chalkboard!
