Wednesday Words of Wisdom

6 Feb

“If at first you don’t succeed…”

Now, you fill in the blank and have your own words of wisdom for Wednesday.

Here’s mine:
“If at first you don’t succeed, sit down and have a nice cup of tea and a double chocolate chip brownie.”

Yesterday, I was so unsuccessful that I inadvertently poured myself two cups of tea. They say with age comes wisdom. I say with age comes forgetfulness. Now, where’s my brownie?


Tipsy Tuesday

30 Jan

Somewhere in the lunacy that is my life, I lost a day…again. How do you lose a day? I’m doing it more and more lately. I knew yesterday was Tuesday. I go to Zumba on Tuesday. I went to Zumba at 8:30. My plan was to have Tuesday be my “Tips from Toni Tuesday” for my blog. Well, by the time 10 pm slithered by, I was convinced that it was Monday night and I had already posted Monday’s blog earlier that morning. But, NOOOOO!

To my horror, when I glanced at the Dallas Morning News, there it was, in black and white…Wednesday, January 30, 2013. Well, at least it wasn’t 2033. I haven’t pulled a Rip Van Winkle, at least not yet. (Trivia Note: Rip slept for 20 years, not 100.) Then, I remembered my phone conversation Monday night with my son. He told me that Saturday, he went to his buddy’s 30th birthday party. I asked, “Rob was in the same class as you, how come he is so much older?” He kindly informed me that he was born in ’83 and it’s 2013, “Do the math, Mom.”

Oh, man! I lost a year. Most people would be concerned for their sanity. Not me, I like it. When everyone else is getting old and grey, I’ll be comfortable in the knowledge that I am so much younger than all my friends. Yes, it’s a good thing!

So, here it is. Better late than never.


If you have any of those silicone baking pans for cute cupcakes, they make great ice cube trays. But, instead of freezing water, use lemonade and then you can pop them into iced tea for a lemony tea. Or you can freeze different juices and add to drinks, and they won’t dilute your beverage. Plus, they look cute! Make sure you place them on a cookie sheet to freeze because they are wobbly. After they are frozen, you can wrap them individually in plastic wrap and freeze a whole bunch and put them in a ziplock bag and keep frozen.

They come in all kinds of cute shapes for the ladies, and they even have footballs, soccer balls, golf balls, etc., for the macho guys who don’t care to have roses or butterflies floating in their manly martinis.
