National Bourbon Heritage Month

September is  National Bourbon Heritage Month, and I'm squeezing in my celebratory offering at the last possible minute. (I did just explain my problem with timeliness in giving of gifts, so my tardiness for this event shouldn't be a complete surprise) A few things to know: I have never been a bourbon drinker. No bourbon, no whiskey, no thanks. My YouTube collaboration ...

Losing track of time – #HASHTAGHUMPDAY

Responses to a shamer, Zima and Dreams – Friday Link-Ups

Although last weekend was a three day-er, it felt incredibly short. While I got lots of things done, it didn't actually feel productive. But, since I was being productive, it also didn't feel relaxing. This weekend I'm aiming for maximum relaxation. In the meantime, I'm hanging out with my favorite Friday link-ups: Oh, Hey Friday, High Five for Friday, and Friday Favorites (add'l links below)!   Favorite Quote This Week   Favorite Video ...
