January is National Soup Month! :)


It’s being celebrated all month long…SOUP and it’s National which makes it very, very important! 🙂 What can I say? I really love to celebrate anything and everything as some of you kind readers already know. By the way, so does Autumn…Did anyone doubt it? 😉 We are just fools for anything fun and perhaps sometimes rather silly, too. So I must share this amazing tidbit of news about National Soup Month…Still plenty of days in January left! Who’s going to get cooking?

Those of us living in the colder temperatures of winter, like us here in PA…We totally just have to embrace the making of soup and any kind you wish to make is just up to you. Make whatever your heart desires and share it, freeze it, eat it and you will be all warm inside and it will spread to your outside, too. Soon we will forget the snow, the cold, the wind and racing to whatever heat source we can find…Try it! What have you got to lose and who doesn’t love soup? Oh no, please don’t tell me someone dislikes a nice bowl of warm homemade soup? Well, it can happen because we all are entirely different of course. If you just don’t like soup you can share of course, you will still be treated kindly because that’s the Twinnie way.

So, for myself I cooked up a huge pot of chicken vegetable soup and shared some, froze some and as a matter of fact just had a nice bowl. Totally yummy and I am warm and happy…See my smile? 🙂 I hear tell Autumn and her darling man made a nice batch of chili yesterday…I am ever so happy they intend to share!

One of the funniest things I heard about was one of my neighbors who hates cooking but loves to eat and was prowling the grocery store section where they sell homemade soup. One of the other neighbors told me she was proudly pawning it off as her own cooking of course because she thinks we all don’t know her secret. I’m not being mean, Mrs Y is just one of those people and you see her and run fast into your house. 😉 She can’t help herself, she just isn’t exactly a very happy camper since her divorce because it was all his fault of course. The kids and grandkids don’t visit enough and when they do it isn’t the right day or time…Well, you kind of get the picture.

Back to soup…Sorry I do digress at times! 😉 Anyway kind readers, please do feel free to discuss and chat about your thoughts and all about soup. Sharing is what it’s all about and besides this set of inquiring Twinnies would love to know…We’ll be waiting! 🙂 🙂

You and Me


You and me and me and you

Have a love that’s oh so true

As we travel through the years

We’ll talk through all our fears

Together from the start

we hold each others hearts

With a love that’s meant to last

bad times never seem to pass

We stand together very strong

nothing can go wrong

It’s a love that’s meant to stay

in each and every way

Better than the best

we’ve passed every single test

Come and take my hand

together we will stand

Forever and a day we go

the way is clear to know …


We are hoping and praying Jangles is found! Please reblog this, it’s worth a try.

Long Life Cats and Dogs

Probably 90% of my readers are from the international community, which makes this a rather desperate attempt.  However, based on the “six degrees of separation” principle, I am hoping that this truly phenomenal blogging community could do me the ultimate favour of passing this information to anyone they know.

My dear, previously abused and, therefore, terribly frightened cat, Jangles, somehow managed to escape from her run at the cattery / boarding facility in which she was staying whilst I was away.  Being the scared cat that she is, it is highly unlikely that she will approach a stranger.  However, I am putting out her photograph here, in the hope that someone, somewhere, knows a person who might have seen her scurrying under bushes.

Jangles was at a facility in Bryanston, Johannesburg, South Africa.  I have been in the area every day, calling for her.  She will be scared and…
