Premiere Wacky Wednesday at Mulberry St. Market

--Submitted by Davis Farms

 

Wed. July 13 the Mulberry Street Market will be celebrating Farm Animals with our Premier Wacky Wed. event for children. The event will feature a friendly goat named Sugar. Local farmer Ms Robin Dunaway, of Greenway Farms in Roberta, GA will be bringing Sugar, a nanny goat with a sweet disposition. “She just wants you to love and adore her” explained Ms Dunaway. With soft fur and medium build, Sugar will be a great way for parents to introduce young children to farm animals. 

Texas Pete is another farm animal that will be visiting the market. He is a rooster with quite a reputation. “Texas Pete is the sweetest rooster you ever could meet” said Pete’s farm mom, Ms Amy Bean of The Little Farm in Gray GA. “You can scratch him under his chin and he almost purrs like a cat” she continued. Henry the Turtle will also make a visit.

Today's Purge - Cookbooks

Today's Purge - Cookbooks

This summer I am trying to take advantage of some down time to declutter my own house. After having a discussion with my husband this weekend, we have decided our cookbook collection needs some serious purging.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love my cookbook collection as much as the next gal but my husband and I realized that we rarely ever refer to them anymore.

If we want a new recipe, we run the computer and browse AllRecipes.com or Food Network. If it’s a tried and true recipe that we love, it’s in my recipe card box.  There was a time when my husband loved to plan a holiday meal (yes, he really loves to cook but rarely has the time) with a stack of Southern Living cookbooks at his side, but that doesn’t happen anymore. He’s more likely to Google than browse.

Being There for Each Other – Or What I Learned From Last Night’s Hoarders

Last night was the season premiere of Hoarders on A&E.  I was so excited to watch because several of the “helper” organizers were organizer friends of mine from NAPO Georgia. If you watched the episode, they worked on the doll lady’s home and were the ones in the pink shirts.  Under the guidance of master organizer Geralin Thomas they did a wonderful job helping Phyllis with her overrunning collection of dolls and toys. If you missed the episode, you can watch it here .

Organizing Your Summer Vacation

Organizing Your Summer Vacation

I have recently returned from a weekend trip to Savannah with my daughter’s Girl Scout troop. As the troop leader, it was my responsibility to make all of the arrangements and reservations and then make sure we got where we needed to be when we needed to be there.  Doing this with a group of eight 5th grade girls sometime felt like herding cats at times, but I digress.
