- If you’ve never had grape pie…buy it and try it. I grew up with a strict allegiance to homemade apple pie but quite recently developed a fondness for grape pie. It’s rather sweet tasting, so I always accompany it with a hot cup of tea. Perfect on a chilly fall day. Monica’s Pies in Naples, NY is a must if you ever visit the Finger Lakes.
- Think twice before downloading a pricey book on your Kindle. After reading great things about the novel ‘Anna and the French Kiss’ by Stephanie Perkins I purchased it on Sunday. Normally I avoid ebooks priced higher than $7.99. It’s sort of a mental safety net for my wallet. After reading Anna I immediately wanted to purchase this author’s next novel, Lola and the Boy Next Door. This one is priced even higher. Ugh! But it’s sooo tempting.
- Don’t curse at your computer when it falls short of your expectations. I had a problem with one key on my laptop — the letter X. After verbally abusing it all week I suddenly have a problem with the letter C, too. Now I’m trying to soothe them both with sweet talk. It’s not working….and my work in progress is not amused.
- Don’t iron in the dark. Hmmm…I tried to put my son’s Cub Scout badges on this morning. Since I don’t sew, I assumed iron on would be the best option. Now I’m not so sure. I’m blaming poor lighting on the fact that nothing is centered properly. What are the chances that a 7 year old boy is going to notice that his mom put the fleur de lis upside down? (No merit badge for me today:-)
