Two days before Thanksgiving To Do list: 1. Clean out fridge.  Sounds simple enough. 2. Bake carrot cake.   3. Cook potatoes so they’re ready to mash. 4. Make broccoli casserole. 5. Continue to ‘ghetto-up’ the basement with lights and fabric so teenagers will have a retreat. Presently, it looks like a shady underground sports […]

7 quick takes……

by Edie Wadsworth on November 21, 2008

7 Quick Takes……This is a link party…..to play along, visit here. It’s like 7 random musings…all in one post.  And you’ll love snooping around Jennifer’s blog.  Superb writing…..funny, smart, and I wish she were my next door neighbor.  She could possibly be my new BFF (which apparently changes weekly) ’cause she has ADD.      […]


The Stages of Grief…..

by Edie Wadsworth on November 18, 2008

Remember the Kubler-Ross ‘stages of grief’ chart from Psychology 101?  Here’s what mine looks like after my purse got stolen right outta my car last night.   While my car sat in my driveway. 1. Denial- “Surely noone would just come and take my purse right out of my car.  And steal my ipod.  And […]


God Bless Texas…….and Donia…….

by Edie Wadsworth on November 16, 2008

These are some of my dearest friends in the world……This is mocha cake……This is their story. Donia, THE girl in the picture above came to visit Friday.  No she’s not from Texas and no she doesn’t host a show on the Trinity Broadcasting network. (I’m giggling).  She used to live in my wonderful neighborhood with […]


Love and prayers to you….

by Edie Wadsworth on November 14, 2008

Thank you to Jessica and Keli for this award.   And let me first say that I’m a little tardy acknowledging them. But thank you girls so much for thinking of me. And to Angie for this award.  All this bloggy love I’m gettin’ is great… but I’m a little technically challenged so all this […]


Mexican food and septic tank troubles…..go figure!

by Edie Wadsworth on November 10, 2008

So,  today is Marcus’ birthday.  He’s 22!   We celebrated yesterday after church with one of his favorite meals……beef and chicken enchiladas with homeade queso and homeade salsa.   And then of course,  cookie cake.  I would include some recipes but I don’t want my food in that close proximity to the Roto Rooter truck […]


Life goes on….even when your candidate doesn’t win….. even when you run out of decoupage two sheets of scrapbook paper too early….even when the seven pounds won’t come off…..and even when you’re children think you’re crazy for trying to learn to swing dance from a girl name “Tracy” that lives in your computer.   The […]


Spooky mornings……..

by Edie Wadsworth on October 31, 2008

While I work on my country girl skills at photographing my new highlights which are slightly on the yellow side of ‘golden’,There are two little witches stirrin’ away at their witches brew….. …..and I wouldn’t eat that candy if I were you…‘cause that leaves more for me.   Happy Halloween!

Sitting on the sofa, knitting, while my girls practice their reading and thinking that I am the luckiest mom in […]


Less is more……….

by Edie Wadsworth on October 28, 2008

As I ponder the upcoming holidays and yearn for less commercialism in my life in general,  I love this song by Eddie Vedder taken from the Into the Wild soundtrack.  As you read the lyrics to the song “Society”  ,  look to the right and hit play.   Enjoy his sultry voice too!   Since […]


I ADORE mornings…….

by Edie Wadsworth on October 27, 2008

I don’t know how you spend your mornings, but I’m always conflicted about how best to spend this precious two hours to myself before anyone wakes up.   Should I continue with the painting doors and trim I started a while back?   Should I clean out the pantry?  Should I knit on my sweater […]


Speaking of Running…….

by Edie Wadsworth on October 24, 2008

I have a great idea.   Let’s train for a half marathon together.   It’s not as hard as  you think.   You run ~3days/week  3-4 miles each day.   Then,  on Saturdays, you increase your ‘long’ run from 3 miles to 12 miles over 12 weeks.   If you’ve never done it,  it’s amazing. […]


Braces, cake, and running………

These are among the reasons why I often wonder why I went for that 3 mile […]
