Pastime with Pro’s and A Hungry Mind

Who doesn't love a blog post that features food?  Today I decided to share three local places that Chris and I have eaten in the past few weeks.  We find ourselves having "date nights" and "lunch dates" these days and are trying to explore some of the area eateries that we don't frequent too often.  Today I will share 3 of those little places with you and tempt you with pictures of lovely food in technicolor. First stop---Pastime Gardens located on S. Madison in Mason City. I had been to this … [Read more...]

Slightly Savory Saturday

I am longing for a bit of summer today so I am sharing one of my all time favorite summer salads.  This is one that I make all year long and absolutely LOVE!   So if you are longing for some warmth and sun today why don't you try my take on a fabulous salad. Tomato, Olive and Mozzarella Salad 1 can black olives (I use a large can, drain the olives and slice in half) 3 cups cherry tomatoes (This is usually about one clamshell container.  I like to mix it up if they have the yellow ones … [Read more...]

The Unfinished Church

One of my favorite stops on our recent trip to Bermuda was to visit the quaint town of St. George's.  We had a lovely time strolling around the very quiet town on a warm and sunny day and were thrilled to be able to visit so many of the historic and beautiful places that were within walking distance.  Since our visit was timed in the off season for the island we did not have to fight crowds of people and it really was the most wonderful way to visit the island. Being part of a church family … [Read more...]

Sunny Skies, Warm Sand, Rainbows and Gentle Breezes

If you are anything like me you look forward to March because it usually means that spring is on  the way.  It has been a pretty brutal winter in the Midwest and quite frankly almost everywhere so when the hubby suggested a Valentine's Day trip to Bermuda  I jumped on the proverbial plane bandwagon and got ready to enjoy some warmth and fun in the sun.  Little did I know all the twists and turns that life would take prior to the trip.  I am often grateful that I can not see into the … [Read more...]

Top Twelve Things I Learned in Bermuda

This past week Mr. Diamond and I have been in Bermuda.  Our trip got delayed 3 days because we could not get out of Atlanta, we rearranged our flights and accommodations and still were able to make the trip.  It is our last one scheduled for awhile so we decided to make the most of getting away from the horrible weather (yes, another blizzard hit while we were gone) and enjoy ourselves.  I learned a few things along the way. No trip to Bermuda is complete without being met at the airport … [Read more...]

Loyalty

I have been getting comments lately about my key chain. I don't know why all of the sudden people are noticing it but they are. What do you think? Would you notice and comment on it? I suspect it is really not the adorable red B fob or the almost worn off I <3 NC with a smiley face bead that folks are noticing but instead all of my "loyalty" key tags. I was thrilled when places started letting go of the credit card sized cards that linked you to their store and were vehicles for … [Read more...]
