Blog Hunt Swap on

This swap requires that I post different blogs on my blog. They are from different subjects.

Health Issues:
This blog is about the subject of mold. It is very interesting. Also, I never knew that there would be a blog about mold.

This site posts pictures of missing children. It is well worth looking at. At the bottom of each picture, you can find the contact information for the law enforcement agency handling the case.

Spiritual Issues:

There are many subjects in this blog. I have read it with regard to grief after losing my husband.

Food/Cooking issues:

The cooking diva blog is very interesting. It has information about the chef and things she does also includes many recipes.

Free Stuff

I have been a member of for over 5 years. The woman that runs the site sends out e-mails with terrific deals on purchases and numerous free items. I love this site.

Partners and coordinators blogs: (Coordinator of swap) (Keep Myself in Stitches)

Hope you enjoy looking at these blogs.

Winter Wonderland Coffee Swap Question #4

Subject: What is the ideal setting for enjoying the perfect cup of coffee? Who would be there - or would you be alone? Inside or out? Morning or night? With food or just the steaming cup of joe?

My ideal setting for the enjoying the perfect cup of coffee would be first thing on a Sunday morning (no possibility of having to go to work) while everyone else in the house is sleeping. If I am so lucky as to wake up before my granddaughter (she spends every Saturday night with me), then I go out and make a fresh pot of Breakfast Blend coffee. I will pick whatever cream I have a craving for and then plop down in front of the television to watch the Sunday morning news shows. I use to try to read the paper but with Alia here I do not even attempt that until the evening. Sometimes I will fix myself something like an omelet; however most of the time I enjoy the coffee alone.

Winter Wonderland Coffee Swap Question # 3

The question this week is what I am thankful for. This question has actually helped me focus back on the good in my life. This is the first holiday season since my husband passed away in September. I realized that I was dwelling on not having him with me. However after giving some thought, I realized I have so much to be thankful for.

1. I am very thankful for having 3 wonderful children and a very loving family.

2. I am thankful to have my granddaughter. Alia is my stepson's daughter. I truly believe she is a gift from God. She can make me smile just being in her presence.

3. I am very thankful to have employment, and a roof over my head.

4. I am grateful to have my health. This year I have had a couple of health scares but every time is has turned out to be nothing serious.

I have many more things to be grateful for. However, these are the most important in my life.

Winter Wonderland Coffee Swap Topic of the week

I have been so busy working on Christmas gifts I have not had time to even think about making anything for myself. I can't complain though. I find that I am usually making items for others, not myself. I have a tendency to do that with all the crafts I do. I did cross stitch since I was a teenager and do not have one piece that I made. I always gave them away.

Winter Wonderland Coffee Swap Question:

When did you first start drinking coffee? What age were you? Was it about the caffeine, or do you love the taste and smell? Tell us how your passion began!

I began drinking coffee as a young child, to act like a grown up. However, it was not until I became a late teenager that I really began to love coffee. When I first started drinking coffee I drank it with just cream. I absolutely love the smell of a pot of coffee brewing. I now like to try the different flavored coffees. I still only drink a cup with cream but like to experiment with flavors. I have to admit though, I am addicted. If I try to stop drinking coffee, I get the worse headache ever. Therefore, I will only limit my coffee to one cup in the morning and the portable coffee IV all day long!!!! :)
