Tuesday’s Thoughts!

Good Morning! Hope your week is off to a great start. I do like it being lighter earlier in the morning now, makes it easier to get up early. My Dad was one who always liked early mornings and he still does. When teenagers and wanting to sleep in on Saturday’s,  we were often told not to waste away our day by sleeping in. I remember feeling proud of myself when I was younger and it was easy to get up early, as my sisters still laid in bed. Dad would be sitting at the table with his cup of coffee, and he would have some stickers for me, since I was up early. Yes, simple stickers brought joy!

You probably really don’t want to know how many stickers I had in my sticker album. Puffy ones, shiny and sparkly ones, scented ones, animals, hearts, you name it, I had them. Today kids send out all kinds of emojis to their friends. My bestie and I would get together with our bulging sticker albums and trade stickers. Like one trades baseball cards, though stickers definitely rated higher to us than baseball cards. What is something you remember collecting as a child? Feel free to share it below, along with your favorite quote/quotes. Enjoy!

Just a tsp. of sugar….

 

Mary Poppins is one of my all time favorite musicals, for I have such fond memories of it as a child and who can beat Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke!!

This song came to my mind due to a subject that came up with a friend on Facebook the other day. She was talking about making cinnamon toast for her children and how she makes it with white sugar! I was aghast! Who makes cinnamon toast with white sugar I thought??? So I took a highly scientific FB poll, only to be more and more shocked. Apparently I was the odd one! They had never heard of using brown sugar. Comment after comment confirmed that you use white to make yummy cinnamon toast.

There was a lot of laughter and it just showed how sometimes what you think is really common isn’t so very common after all! I learned, but I am still sticking with my brown sugar on the rare occasion that I make a piece for myself anymore. How do you make your cinnamon toast, please share! Or what is something that you do with food that perhaps not many others do? Ketchup on eggs? Peanut butter in tomato soup? Feel free to share below!
