Daily Treats About Life , Recipes, Books., Blogging
There are a lot of interesting articles in here tonight.
I don’t keep up with what is going on in the world like I should. Like I use to. Sadly, I just don’t want to know too much. I have enough problems dealing with “Our World”. My world.
Summer is not even officially here yet, and I am doing my best TO survive the coming months.
Bobby and I (My son) would talk for hours about politics, the world, The US. Everything.
Danny and I started off doing it.
Then Bobby died and I couldn’t care about everyone else. Not like I did.
Don’t get me wrong……In many ways, now, It CARE more about people. I just can’t handle ALL the NEWS from Around the World. The same news from our country.
I must know enough…because I can still carry on a conversation with Danny about most things.
He knows all the details. All the names. ETC. I know enough about the issues. Who they are…. We can still talk about them when he needs me to.
Come election time: I will know the issues….The Men and women running for office.
I am not sure what brought all of this out except I found myself reading a few ISSUES in here lately. One just tonight.
I realized, I Do know more than I thought. Often, more than I want to.
I won’t be posting any of those. I don’t plan to EVER get political here.
Anyway, On with some of the MORE Interesting articles.
12 Great Reasons To Plug In Your Slow Cooker This Summer
I have always used my slow cooker or crock pot as I call it. A lot. My mom gave me my first one back in the early 80’s.
I started using it 3 and 4 times a week when Danny and I lived in Our RV. (5 years). We were both gone for 10 or so hours a day. I’d be in and out since the RV was at the park we both worked at (for the first 2 years).
It just made things easier. It didn’t take up much space. One dish meals make cleanup easier.
