Writing 101, Day Eight: Cash and Carry Barn is a great find


writing-101-june-2014-class-badge-2

Go to a local café, park, or public place and report on what you see. Get detailed: leave no nuance behind.

To drive past The Cash and Carry Barn which is located at 951 Lafayette Rd, Clarksville, TN 37042 it looks like a monument store.  If you have kept driving you have missed out on a huge treat.  They are so much more. (931) 503-9921 is their number to call.

Rather than skip the adverbs I had a better idea.  Show you.  Since they are open year round they have lots of pictures on their Facebook page.

Saturday Mornings there means fresh baked goods:

Then there is the homemade salsa, pickles, relishes, various apple butters, pie fillings and fresh baked pies.

Did I mention the fresh vegetables.  They are open year round.  They have a great green house.

Yes they work hard at the monuments.  Behind the scenes there is so much more… Go and see it for yourself when you are in the area.  Tell them that Tammye and Emmanuel sent you.

Daily Prompt: Popping A Pill Instead Of Eating?


Daily Prompt: Red Pill, Blue Pill

If you could get all the nutrition you needed in a day with a pill — no worrying about what to eat, no food preparation — would you do it?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us NOURISHMENT.

I have days where this would absolutely be ideal.  It would grow tiresome though as I do love to cook.
I love spending time in my kitchen and the food preparation  is partially what it is all about.
If I popped a pill that would mean that there would never be any more food videos.

That would make me sad.






I did not realize that I had made six videos already till I went to put them on here.

I have actually been tempted to make another one lately.
I just have not found the recipe that sparks me to do it.

What recipe would you like to see made so that you would learn how to make it fast and easily?

Perhaps your responses will spark my next video…all comments will be considered.

If you have a favorite recipe that you would like to be made into a video just send it to my email.

Here are the responses that other Daily Prompt Writers had today about the little pill of nutrition:

  1. Daily Prompt: Red Pill, Blue Pill | Basically Beyond Basic
  2. Free Your Stomach, and the Rest Will Follow | Do Not Get Sick in the Sink, Please
  3. What’s for dinner – Red pill or Blue Pill | Nanuschka’s Blog
  4. So sad! | Vivir, que no es poco
  5. Things That Pill Could Never Supply You With | Daily Prompt: Red Pill, Blue Pill | likereadingontrains
  6. dining with you, a haiku | charlottesville winter
  7. Pills | Cat’s Chinwag
  8. I’d swallow it. Especially if it just shut my selves up. | thoughtsofrkh
  9. Popping Pills | Hope* the happy hugger
  10. Time to eat! | Penne 4 Your Thoughts
  11. The Pill | Matthew Vett’s Development Blog

Bad Experiences With Side Effects Of An Allergy


Simply walking into a room and taking a few pretzels from a bowl to eat.  
Adding mascara to my eyes.
That is all that it took.  

Inhaler, allergy meds, they did not help.  A small amount of relief but not totally.  I did not want to do the epi pen.

When do you decide enough is enough and give in and see a doctor?

Left eye swollen to the point where it was almost shut.
Itching across the abdomen.  
This all started on Saturday.

By Monday, with no signs of improvement, the doctor was called.

Feeling like I was being dragged behind the truck, I went in to the doctor’s office to get a shot.  Now I had pain in two places.  His suggestion was to place a hot pack on my eye to reduce the swelling so I could at least see out of it.  I had been doing ice packs prior as a home remedy.

I came home, took a new Dish towel that I had just washed and dried and attempted to sew up all the sides, leaving a small opening on one end.  I turned it right side out and proceeded to fill it with long grain rice.  I then sewed up the opening and placed it in the microwave for four minutes.  

From there I headed to bed.  My hubby was amazed that this little project worked.  

It is wonderful.  It was something that I had at home.  I did not have to stop anywhere to make a purchase.  It was quick and easy to make on my sewing machine and I had instant relief.  

The trick is to not over fill the bag or it will burst.  Do not heat over four minutes in the microwave or you will burn yourself.

For more information about corn allergies here is some insight:  http://tammyeandhubby.wordpress.com/about-corn-allergies/ and also at http://tammyeandhubby.wordpress.com/about-corn-allergies/how-to-rule-out-an-allergy-to-a-food/

If this information can help even one other person from having to go through the week I have had, it is well worth sharing.

Benadryl has Corn Syrup in the liquid or Corn Starch in the capsules so before you reach for that for relief…read the information.

My best to all.

Road Trip A-Z Day 10


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

Today is Day 10 of my road trip.  I have a heavy heart today.  I am so easy to get along with. 
When I find something of interest on the internet, I always try to paste where I found it just so my readers can go there and read all about it.

I do not try to take credit for something that I have not written myself.  
I have visited several blog sites where they do not create any work of their own, they simply report on great finds that they have stumbled across.

I have my email address plastered across all of my blog sites where I can be notified, should I post something that someone does not care for where they could privately contact me.  To just report me to Word Press and turn me in for a violation without a word, I felt was a bit extreme.  Even a comment on the post itself would have prompted me to have removed the post if that was what the author wanted.

Today it is like the little car is running with hesitation.  Needs a little tune up.

Perhaps I will just give you a road trip of my various blog sites today and tune up my engine.  
Day 11 might just be “The Little Engine That Could”  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Little_Engine_That_Could 

It is just another day in Paradise so here I go…

So for our business lines we have the following blogs:

The rest of my blogs were created either by accident then recreated as I did not know how to fix the names or were intentional for cooking.

Sorry to make the journey so short today, however till I get the mess cleared up with Word Press, here I sit.  

My engine is in the shop for repair so let’s see what tomorrow brings.

Thank You Dr. Oz & Dr. Phil


While I am in the midst of reading all of my fellow Word Press Writer’s Blogs for today I am heavily bombarded by pop ups from either Dr. Oz or Dr. Phil.

They are both advising me on how to lose weight by burning my excess fat.

http://doctoroz.sharecare.com/

http://www.drphil.com/

Now that I am about 120 lbs. at 5′ 8″ I am 10 lbs. under weight.

Where were you when I weighed 185 lbs. and could have used your advice?  Oh, that is right, you were not rich and famous yet.  I had to do it the hard way.

Eating right, changing my diet, exercising, working several jobs at a time, being a single mom, taking care of two daughters….

Sorry that I just do not appreciate your pop up ads right now.  I am sure that you mean well.  Even when I answered your survey,  hoping to find a way to be healthy while I maintain my weight or slowly gain a few pounds to get to my optimum weight, I received numerous emails from both of you urging me to lose more weight and purchase food products to do so.  To purchase your books and diet plans to lose even more weight against the advice of my physician.

Who am I going to listen to?  Two famous TV doctors?  Guess again…

I am taking the advice of my own family physician who reads my blood tests and sees my x-rays on a regular basis.  She is the one who knows what my prescriptions are, my blood pressure is and has been the one to give me all of my physicals.

Thank you as you might help a few people who really need you and do not have a family physician.  I feel that is the first place anyone who does have their own physician should start.  With someone who knows their body.  Not with a system who does not know what makes them tick inside.

Have a nice day,

What do you feel about this as readers?  Does this happen to you or am I just a lucky one?

Would love to hear from you and your opinion on this matter.

Daily Prompt: Pressing On to Share The Love


pad2013 (1)

Daily Prompt: Press It

Give some love to three blog posts you’ve read and loved in the past week, and tell us why they’re worth reading.

The very first one that comes to mind is a post by a regular that I read and it was really a great Poem that she wrote.

http://theseeker57.wordpress.com/2013/04/10/on-children-april-2013-monthly-peace/

The poem was very touching, well written and the message was one that was well worth a reblog.

The next one that comes to mind is a mom who shows her love of children through her blog…every step of the way.  She also shows her love of crafts on the blog.  Her latest blog was on her second child’s first hair cut.  http://momoftwosalums.com/2013/04/10/my-baby-boy-had-his-first-haircut/
 Through her writings, you can tell her overflowing love of her family.

The next must read is going to two bloggers actually because when I am hungry, I always go to these two sites to see what they or their guest bloggers are cooking for the day.  They never disappoint me and always have something great to offer:

http://rantingchef.com/author/rantingchef/  When he is not giving you a great recipe he is giving you a diced competition of four great blogging chefs who are competing with a recipe.

http://maggiesonebuttkitchen.com This gal is all about cooking and blogs or has guest blogs daily about food.

So that is my recommendations for the day…I have many more on my wall if you check that I actually recommend daily as I read them.

Now I am off to my A-Z challenge…I am on the Letter J so I am still going strong.

Daily Prompt: Transporting Back To Youth through Taste Smell and Music


Daily Prompt: The Transporter

Tell us about a sensation — a taste, a smell, a piece of music — that transports you back to childhood.

The smell of an apple orchard, as I used to love to rest under the trees and read for hours during the Summer when the barn chores were finished.

apple tree with ladder apple tree 3 apple tree

 

The taste of fresh baked sugar cookies and the aroma in the house that it gives off… With a cup of fresh perked coffee.

coffee

Now for the music.  That is a tough one.  There was so much music that I listened to as a youth with my transistor radio/cassette player and head phones when it was not French lessons.

So there is a music play list for you….

What brings back memories for you?  Would love to hear…leave me a comment.

Daily Prompt: Comedy of Errors Making Pasta


Daily Prompt: Comedy of Errors (and bonus assignment!)

by michelle w. on February 27, 2013

Murphy’s Law says, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” Write about a time everything did — fiction encouraged here, too!

Bonus assignment: do you keep a notebook next to your bed? Good. Tomorrow morning, jot down the first thought you have upon waking, whether or not it’s coherent.

The one and only time that we have tried to make pasta, I forgot what pasta was all about the first time through and tried to make it with Gluten Free Flour.

Nice option to baking

Nice option to baking but not pasta making

The second time of trying we used regular flour and used a YouTube Video…I think he had a few too many glasses of wine… the pasta was way too thin and had holes.

The third attempt got us as far as making the dough from a recipe that my hubby’s friend gave him.  By then, my kitchen looked like a tornado had gone through it and the mess was incredible.

4354413748136Pdrying rackattachments ravioliclock tickingIt was late at night and we were both exhausted… I ended up just doing dishes with hubby’s assistance and going straight to bed.  Tossing the dough into the trash.

Perhaps another day I will try again…when I am feeling brave.

Perhaps I might even consider just leaving it to Barilla

Daily Prompt B+: What I did last Weekend?


Daily Prompt: B+

by michelle w. on February 23, 2013

Write about what you did last weekend as though you’re a music critic reviewing a new album.

Prelude:  Has a woman sitting at her desk asking herself what she really did last weekend.  It was only one week ago.

Track One:

Hubby goes to grocery store on post and has a panic attack before he finishes grocery list and hurries home with ribs (not on list) and half of the grocery list.  Not a great track here.  No happy dancing here.

Track Two:

Wife slowly puts away few groceries and finishes cleaning the house..Not an exciting track here at all.

Track Three:

Time to feed the animals again.  They eat three times a day in small portions. This track is a bit better.  At least a little better dancing.

Track Four:

Time to blog of course since Daily Prompt never takes a break.  This is definitely a better dance track while working.

Track Five:

This track is all about getting in a shipment from Tupperware and Scentsy that I had to inventory and stamp catalogs.  Not very exciting but very necessary since we were out of catalogs and only had Canadian Catalogs no USA ones. This track had a bonus track with it.

Track Six:

This is where Tammye Honey decided that she was hungry and made dinner.  A simple track but easy to follow.

Track Seven:

Short track of time to do the dishes.  Only wish I had a dishwasher.

Track Eight:

Time to relax and watch some tv while crocheting a light evening of quiet time snuggled in the bed with two dogs and a cat.

Hope this leaves you in a relaxed mode to be able to continue and read what other Daily Prompt Writers had to say on this subject:
