Week 60 Monday (3/2/15)

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Orange-Vanilla Fruit Salad        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays
                  Pages: 108 - 109      Copyright:  2013  Harper Collins

         This is the best salad if you just love fruit. This salad contains five different fruits.  Yes five.  Count’em. Of course, two of them are berries which takes them off of my list, but this is one heck of a pretty salad. I would think that this would be perfect for a Easter Brunch or summer luncheon. 

Random Reflections - Bucket List #48

         My niece, Molly, suggested I could write some school units to sell. Since I loved creating, maybe I could make some units for various grades to sell that would make my separation from school be less dramatic, and make me some bucks on the side.  Of course, it is just one more major project for my bucket list. How can anyone think that I will be bored when I retire, when I have this list to complete before I die?  As my teammate, Steve, knows I WILL complete everything on this list.  If there is one thing for sure, it is that I always meet my goals.

Wants and Wishes

         Today, more than anything else I want to rid my body of this bronchitis. Two weeks ago I thought it was gone, but it has returned in full force. I called the doctor this time, because it was so strong. Hopefully, the meds will kick in and this will go away once and for all.
