Wednesday Reader April 10


Hello Outstanding readers! Presenting Daymaker's Wednesday Reader on this day April 10th - Lots of fun and joy today! Beginning with: QUICK QUESTION Undoubtedly my immediate "ick" is in a grocery store when I witness a kid or adult absolutely full-out sneeze or cough (not covering their mouths) on the buggy handle-bar.  Seriously?  Totally makes me never forget to grab a few or more sanitizer wiper-deals and wipe the handle bar of any cart I grab to do my shopping. Just "ick"!  You? LESLIE ELMAN'S Trivia via Pop Quiz and Fascinating Stuff is intriguing + entertaining + offers material for all of us to find a twinkle in our eye(s) and introduce/share interestings in a 1-2-3 + group of people should conversation lend itself to such. I LOVE the tiny -GIANT story about IN CASE YOU PASS BY A BUS STOP.   A thought-ful, problem-solved read. MEDITERRANEAN LAYER DIP Pretty sure we all know of the fan-favorite "taco style 7 layer dip" -- * drum roll * --  Introducing another outstanding dip - not as well known - yet! STELLAR!

GREETINGS COOL READERS ON THIS LAST MONDAY OF SEPTEMBER FROM CHERYL CLARSON I think the illustration today is super happy and whimsical - and makes me smile. How was your weekend?  All good around here.  Uneventful.  Often times - that's my favorite report from a weekend. Collected this handful of great reads for today: Loved the brick home painting transformations a lot! Size comparison of sea creatures -- uhhh-uhhh-uhh!  I think they're super cool and I love that they're in the deep blue ocean.  I've had people say to me, "Have ya ever been on a 7 day cruise?"

5 For Friday January 12


Hello Readers + fellow Daymakers - January went out with a giant chill - pill that slid into February for a few days.  Sleet - icy roads - brrrr. I was prepared as far as wrapping outdoor + dripping faucets, making sure there were staples for my cat family, wild birds outside the picture window and me for a few days.  All is well. Are you a shopping cart returner or not?  Stephanie Hayes' column in today's issue is a pretty - darn - good - made - ya - think piece.  Be sure to give it a read. Fajita marinade recipe!  Thumbs up.  Get ready to make it over and over and share the recipe - people are gonna be asking for it. I present today's Wednesday Reader.  I hope it succeeds in bringing a bit of a kick - back - enjoyment time. As always, thank you for being here.  Appreciate ya.
