Mississippi Snowflakes

It's 75 degrees here today. 

These are the only "snowflakes" you're likely to see this winter in southern Mississipi.

Or in any winter in southern Mississippi, for that matter.

Crocheting these dainty doilies has been my pasttime as of late.

Though it may seem that crocheting would make me anxious or be too tedious...

It's actually very relaxing....

Particularly when I can do it by an open window

With warm, "winter" air blowing in

And not a snowflake in sight.

Raising Support for Walgreens Pharmacy

This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.

Medicine is expensive these days, so healthcare coverage is a must.  Sometimes, though, it's a hassle to find in-network providers for your prescriptions.  Express Scripts, Inc., which manages Tri-care, the military's healthcare provider, has partnered with Walgreens in the past so that Walgreens pharmacies are in-network, making it extremely convenient to find a reliable pharmacy nearby.  After all, Walgreens in the largest drugstore chain in America!

Unfortunately, Express Scripts is no longer willing to partner with Walgreens, which will disrupt service to thousands, including those in the military. Now, patients who have relied on Walgreens pharmacies for years are being forced to search for other approved prescription drug providers, which causes fear and frustration and potential disruption in medical treatment.   Longtime relationships with trusted pharmacists are being severed.    Click here for further information regarding this former partnership.  Walgreens and Express Scripts

In order to help customers stay with the Walgreens pharmacists they've trusted for years, Walgreens is now offering a Prescription Savings Club to fill in this gap.  A family membership is just $10 a year and covers all members of your immediate family, including a spouse, dependents 22 years old and younger, as well as pets. Individuals can also enroll for $5.  This membership offers you and your family great savings on over 8.000 brand-name prescriptions and all generic prescriptions.  You will also receive savings on nebulizers, diabetic supplies, flu shots, and pet prescriptions.  Do you use Walgreen brand products and Walgreens photo services?  You get bonuses on those too with the Prescription Savings Plan.  Click here for more information.  Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens

In addition to spreading the word and joining the Prescription Savings Club, how else can you support Walgreens in its endeavor to provide uninterrupted service?  You can like them on Facebook and follow them on twitter to stay up to date!  Walgreens on Facebook   Walgreens on Twitter

Stay healthy!

Best Blondies

I'm actually not a big fan of brownies.  I know!

I do love Blondies, though!  Here's a very quick and easy recipe.  I whipped these up Sunday night, just for little old me.

Best Blondies

1 1/3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 9 x 9 x 1-3/4 inch pan.
  2.  Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt, and set aside. In a large bowl, beat together sugars, butter, egg, and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Stir the flour mixture and the nuts into the egg mixture until well-blended. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan. (Batter will be a little dry and hard to spread--this is ok!) 

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until edges start to pull away from pan. While still warm, use a knife to slice into squares.
