Photo Finish Friday


I just can't resist taking photos when I'm up at the cabin. It's even more fun when I use the Lensball. It's a fun and cheap way to enhance photos. Looking forward to a mellow weekend here. We have had some requests for bags lately (it has very much slowed down due to Covid) so I will be working on that. Cheers for a great weekend! XOXO--Teresa


 Thought I would share the quote that currently resides on my fridge. Teresa


I'm so excited! The tennis center in my neighborhood just put these boxes out. YAY! You know I'm a HUGE fan of recycling. More info about this program HERE. The boxes are free and once they are filled, even the shipping labels are free! Win win (pun intended, ha)--Teresa

Long Weekend

We had a long weekend around here (Martin Luther King Day yesterday) and took advantage by going to the cabin. First photo is my fav spot in front of the roaring fire, second is a cute puzzle I finished (love the puzzles from Eeboo), third is from my brisk walk yesterday morning before we got on the road to come back. Hope you had a relaxing weekend too! XOXO--Teresa

How are you? I hope things are well. We've had a nice weather week here but know we should have more snow/water for our dry climate. Looks like we should get some on Monday. :) How are you weathering the Covid Storm? What a mess, mess, mess. Hang in there. Virtual hugs to you all! Teresa

UPDATE: Berlin/Potsdam GERMANY

How great is this? The Berlin/Potsdam Germany chapter is featured in a regional 2021 calendar. The Bagettes are the August photo! Coordinator Bagette Audrey is on the far right in the second photo. Way to go ladies, this is AWESOME! I love everything that Audrey and all of the German Bagettes have accomplished. Currently, Green Bag Lady Germany has made and distributed over 68,000 bags! Yipee!  Teresa



Whelp. I've been doing a little running lately. Yes, the kind where you exercise. It's not any kind of New Year resolution or anything, I just didn't play as much tennis as I would have liked over the holidays and I was feeling sluggish. I have run on and off over the years and mostly off for the last several. I don't hate it but I don't love it either. I'm starting out really slow and giving myself lots of grace. It's also just nice to get outside and I like wearing a face covering so my lungs are spared from the freezing air. Happy Tuesday! Teresa



Twelve (!) years ago I taught y'all how to make microwave popcorn using a brown lunch sack and a piece of tape. I still do this on the daily. Usually as an afternoon snack. Just some butter and salt and I'm happy as a clam. Popcorn became even more important when I went gluten free over a year ago. What is your afternoon snack? Do tell! :) Teresa
