It's a GOODe Life: Randomly Yours

  • I am preparing for some changes to GOODe Ole GOODEness Gracious in the future. I am hoping to add a recipe box that finally organizes all the recipes I have shared here. I may make a few other changes... Anything you would like to see?
  • I am in a reading mood... just ask Amazon... Currently, I am fascinated by The New Rules of Marketing & PR by David Meerman Scott. Whatcha readin'?
  • I read somewhere that the difference between where you are now and where you will be in 5 years is the books you read and the people you surround yourself with... Anyone know where that saying came from? I'd love to know... I really think it is so true.
  • I am not doing to hot on my Diet Coke reduction... and truth be told-- I'm not caring so much, even though I know I hypothetically want to care...just sayin'
  • Change is constant, futile to fight, yet difficult to fully embrace 100 percent all of the time...just sayin'
  • I think I am addicted to Fruity Pebbles...
  • I am ready for sweatshirt weather, apple pickin' and corn mazin'
  • September is gonna be one busy month for this mama... Lots of new fun work projects :)
  • I really like Traminette Wine... I am not a huge wine drinker (beyond soft red), so I was a little surprised at how much I like it...
  • Technology boggles my mind.... I grew up in the age of the microwave, CD players and "car" phones... it really makes me wonder what the world will be like when Miss Add is 30 errr-ish.
  • Ringing phones FREAK Miss Add out... guess she isn't a fan of the disruption.
  • I just found out Michael Tait (formerly of the greatest band ever- dcTalk) is now with Newsboys... where have I been??? Oh and I am SOOO a Newsboys fan now ;)


8 GOODe Thoughts:

Let's see......
Anything I want to see... maybe blogging tips?
What am I reading? Just finished Drew Brees' book, and now I am on to The Help.
Your saying about books and friends? Google have several hits, but I never saw the whole package???
Caffeine? I had to have some coffee myself this morning to finally wake up before lunch!
I might be driving a combine in September! I never made it the whole way up the ladder last year! YIKES!
I'm going to have to try that wine! This is the second time I have read about it today!
Your mind is boggled by technology? I grew up with a b/w TV, a party line phone, and no dishwasher until I was a teenager!
I am so sad to say I have never heard of either of your bands! Will have to check them out!

Yea, you liked traminette!!! Cheers!

Hi Cris!
I am ready for fall too! Even though we had a really, really short summer. I have always been a fan of fall and the harvest, canning, leaves changing, etc.
Hope you have a great week!

Pie is okay with the phone, but we just discovered yesterday she has a new fear of the vaccuum. She flipped out! Poor thing...

<3,<3,<3 your page!!!! i have given up southern style sweet tea(yummmm ) it's 2 cups of sugar seemed to huddle on my hips and mid section!! I now drink Fuze Tropical Punch drinks...yummm they have like 10 calories and og of sugars!!! I have droppped 20 pounds so far!!! I will be trying some of the yummy recipes also!!!! I wish there were more without peppers and mushrooms!!! Have a Blessed week!!!!! :)

Oooo, I will certainly enjoy the recipe box!

I, too, am longing for the crisp fall air of September and October.

The Newsboys are still together? Who knew?

I hope you can break the diet coke addiction. I'm hooked on coffee, but I usually drink it black. Have you ever tried LaCroix or even the Kroger brand sparking water w/some fresh lime and/or lemon juice? If you are hooked on diet coke, you will hate it! But if you drink enough of it...you might acquire a taste! It satisfies the urge for something refreshing and carbonated, w/out the calories or artificial sweetener chemicals.

Love the randomness! And that quote you posted came from Charlie "Tremendous" Jones. Enjoy the Fruity Pebbles!
