Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Tempting Thursday

Here we are past 'hump' day on the way to the weekend! While we have to wait until tomorrow to celebrate TGIF, that does not mean we cannot also celebrate today, in fact, this day and every day! Remember, December is... Exciting, Colorful & Musical! Be sure to check out the First Week in December and of course, get  ready to spend time in the kitchen. As well as the monthly celebrations that demand baking, baking, baking, today is specifically Apple Pie Day where the feature of the day is Apple Pie and Beer—in one dessert!
