THOUGHTS FROM MARY:
Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!!
Wow…. Memorial Day Weekend! Where did the month of May go?
This weekend it is time to take a break.
I’ve been busy lately decluttering my home. Clearing out clothes, knick-knacks, etc. Anything that I haven’t used, no longer have a need for or just don’t want anymore.
I’ve chosen to donate quite a few things. I have had great success using the Lupus Foundation of America, Inc. There are so many items that are on their acceptable donations list that I find the process extremely easy. And, what I love the most is I can schedule a pick-up online (www.lupuspickup.org) and they come to my home. I just leave everything outside and clearly labled.
It is very convenient and I’ve used them several times now. What’s most enjoyable is I have less clutter, I feel good to help others and for a short while as I live a time empty, the open space reveals new possibilities.
I highly recommend them!
For the rest of the weekend, I wish you time spent with loved ones, a BBQ or two, rest, relaxation and a moment of reflection for our troops.
In this week’s “Recipe Corner” I offer you a wonderful dip to wet the appetites of your guests at your own BBQ or to bring as an appetizer to a BBQ you may be invited to.
Wishing you a Happy and Safe Memorial Day Weekend!
