Peeling Potatoes

I have a little confession….

I have been cooking dinner lately and I am kind of enjoying it.

Now I am no gourmet, but I can make garlic mash potatoes and really scrumptious homemade Mac n Cheese.

So today while I was peeling the beautiful organic potatoes and almost peeled the skin off my finger {true story} I thought, “There has to be a better way to do this.”

Then I remembered…

Mary Ann from Gillgan’s Island.

Stay with me.

My dad sent me a you tube video a few months back on how to peel a potato the easy way.

So my friends…here it is. I wish I had remembered it earlier when I was cursing our peeler and wishing I was finished!

But it’s all good. I can make a few Miner adjustments next time.

{5 Easy Tips to Start Now}

It's still summer until September 22nd, even though we are back to school and fall decor is trending all over Pinterest.

All to soon we will be going apple picking and to pick out the perfect pumpkin.

For right now though, it is a good time to "fall" into Christmas planning.

And in past years, I have been known to start shopping for Christmas in January.

In past years, I have been the first on Facebook to announce that I have started my shopping.

That was not the case last year.

The kids were busy, playing sports and going to birthday parties and I had little energy time to think about stockings and gifts.

However, the countdown has begun.  So let's make a few Miner adjustments this year and get goin'! Whose with me?

Things to Do... 


Have you ever hiked up a mountain? 

I’ll admit, it isn't my favorite activity, but when I get to the summit there is a sense of accomplishment like no other.

At the beginning of summer vacation I looked around my laundry room and I noticed something.

It was like the Mount Everest of dirty laundry in there.

The end of the school year had gotten too busy even for me…the gal who doesn't schedule much of anything.

So I hiked up this mountain and finished all of the laundry before we packed for Disney. That was not fun and after that hike I was definitely in need of a vacation.
