Buh-Bye (Facebook)

Published April 30, 2018 by lynn k scott

I have made the decision to inactivate my Facebook account.  While I have made some amazing friends and have a dozen (or so) friends from church on my page, the ultra-liberalism and negativity of Facebook has become overwhelming.

My life is extremely chaotic and full of serious issues that I have no choice but to deal with.  From dealing with my own cancer diagnosis, my sister’s cancer diagnosis, and some legal issues my a couple of my sons are dealing with, Facebook doesn’t offer the support I need.

I did trial runs, if you will, by shutting off the account for a week or even just a weekend.  I proved to myself, I didn’t need that social platform.  True friends have multiple ways to keep in touch with me.  I started posting more to InstaGram.  I still can see pics of my friends and their children.  I can get spiritual memes from K-Love radio as well.

In my opinion, Facebook has grown too big for it’s britches and I can’t in good conscious support that particular platform any longer.  I have more time for my family and friends, in real life; not online.  It also allows me for more writing here and focusing on what’s important in my life.

I appreciate those who continue to follow me on this crazy journey.  There is definitely more to come….just bear with me.

Rant: Selling/Buying on Facebook

Published June 21, 2017 by lynn k scott

*Steps up on soapbox*

*Taps mic*

Hello…I’m going to say my peace about buying and selling on Facebook.  Feel free to agree (or not).  Having been an admin a sales boards, as well as a buyer or seller, this is how I see it….

SELLERS:

  • Provide the city your item(s) are in.
  • If you are willing to travel to meet buyers; say so.
  • Go in order of contact.  If someone by-passes the comments and PMs you (hoping to jump ahead of someone), let them know their place in line.
  • If listing more than one item for sale, either use the “Start Discussion” option to get out of listing a primary price OR list the most expensive item first and subsequent items/prices in the description.
  • STOP using screen shots from other groups.  It’s harder to see the item (and that’s just for starters as to why you do don’t do that).
  • READ the rules for each group.  They are there for a reason and you’re not so special that they don’t apply to you.
  • If you get permission to post something, add “Admin approved” to the beginning of your post.
  • Keep all appointments.  Do not cancel at the last minute.
  • Remove your post when it has been sold.

BUYERS:

  • Have the exact amount of money the item is being sold for.  No the seller doesn’t need to make change for you.
  • Keep your appointment and be on time! If you agree to buy something, then show up to buy it. Time is valuable; including the seller’s.
  • Be prepared to pick up the item. It’s not the seller’s responsibility to get the item to you.
  • If you respond to purchase something, be prepared to pick it up.  If you need to make arrangements for a later day/time, let them know that upfront; not after you should have been at the meeting location.
  • Ask ALL the questions about the item BEFORE agreeing to the purchase.  Do not ask them after you have agreed and set a time/location for pick up.

BOTH Buyers and Sellers need to be respectful of each other.  Times are hard.  Facebook allows free advertising and the ability to stretch our paychecks by getting rid of items we no longer need and/or want.

*Says ‘Thank You’, nods and steps off soapbox.*

Kathi Cares Program

Published March 4, 2017 by lynn k scott

I recently took the plunge and joined Twitter.  I can’t say I’m a huge fan and the majority of my “tweets” will just be my blog posts, but hey, it’s free advertising, right?

That being said, it’s time to bump the Kathi Cares Program again.  For those of you who may be new to this blog or why I even started it, you can read more about it here.

This coming June 12th, will mark the fifth anniversary when my younger sister lost her battle to breast cancer; she was only 37 years old.  In remembering her, the Program speaks to her generosity, caring and willingness to help others.

While a few people have graciously made donations, I am primarily funding this project myself.  The goal is to become a non-profit, so I can ask for donations and those who donate will be able to have a tax write-off.  I am content helping one or two people at a time.

I would ask that if you have Facebook, you take a moment to look at the Kathi Cares Program page and see what it’s about.  If you read or see anything there that moves you, I simply ask that you share the page (or this post) so others might also benefit.

While it’s currently set up to be a local program in Northern California, the goal, one day, is to become nationwide.  I know my sister would approve and if she were still here, she’d be right here with me helping this program grow.

Must have Pot!

Published February 17, 2017 by lynn k scott

…the Instant Pot that is!

I admit it…I’m a kitchen gadget-holic.  I don’t go to meetings, because I openly acknowledge my appliance, gadget, cookware addiction.  I embrace it!

This past December, at my husband’s company Christmas party, I was able to select the Instant Post Duo 7-in-1 Pressure Cooker.  I had been eyeing this for quite some time, however, being the cheap-o that I am, refused to shell out $100+ for another gadget.  Plus, my husband might’ve divorced me.  I buy kitchen gadgets/appliances like he buys car parts (5 cars/2 drive…just saying).                                                                                                                     20170111_183616.jpg

Needless to say…I am addicted!!!  Some people call it a “magic pot” and it can feel that way.  When I can cook an entire, whole chicken in 25 minutes…it’s a bit magical.  Granted, it’s a pressure cooker, not an oven, so there’s no crispy skin.  Some people will pop that chicken into the oven for 5-10 minutes to crisp the skin, but I don’t normally eat the skin anyway.   I also love using chicken quarters (pictured) and shredding them for tacos or enchiladas.

20170113_172112.jpg

While the chicken is resting, let’s use some of that leftover cooking liquid and make some rice pilaf!  There’s even a rice button.  It doesn’t get simpler than that.

Chicken not your thing?

What about hard-boiled eggs?  Can you believe just 4 minutes in the Instant Pot (commonly referred to as the IP), 4 minutes of natural release and 4 minutes in an ice bath.  Done!  The shells peel off much easier too.

20170115_205909.jpg

Trying to eat healthier…how about some homemade Greek yogurt?  I go through a lot of yogurt.  For gluten-free yogurt, it costs just under $3.50 for a 32-ounce container.  For about $2.50, I can turn an entire gallon of milk into a 64-ounces yogurt.  Then I strain it from the whey and I have Greek yogurt.  The whey can be used in making bread, smoothies and all sorts of baking options.  Take some of the yogurt, blend in some berries (maybe a bit of honey) and make homemade yogurt pops…DELICIOUS!

One of the best aspects of the Instant Pot is I can come home, make a meal that takes hours in just about 30-minutes.  I used to use the crock pot.  However, that would finish hours before I got home, turn itself to warm and sometimes the meat would be dry.  No more. Those days are over!

There’s a Facebook group IP Community.   There’s another Facebook group just for IP recipes!  My addiction has come “full circle” and I’ve added a second Instant Pot to my counter tops.  I couldn’t help myself.  The first one was free (from the party) and there was one at the flea market, brand new, for $50 (SQUEAL of excitement)!!!  Ok, so I took the money from my truck payment; don’t judge me.  I just had to have it.  My husband rolled his eyes.  He knew it was coming home with us.

I have the ability to have an IP just for making yogurt and one for savory dishes.

So, if you’re a foodie…this is a kitchen must-have.  If you’re going to a wedding or housewarming…bring an Instant Pot and you’ll be the favored guest for quite some time.

 

Could I ask a favor?

Published March 23, 2016 by lynn k scott

I typically don’t ask for favors, but I am now.

I have a talented friend, Tom, whom I met because of my sister.  He is a veteran and has entered a contest.  I would like to see his drawing get the most “likes”.  If you have Facebook, and it’s not too much trouble, could you please click on the link, “like” the drawing and feel free to say a few words in a comment if the moment moves you to do so.

Then, if you wouldn’t mind either sharing this blog or the link on your own Facebook wall, it would be a double dose of kindness.

So here’s the link, Jessie’s Warriors,

Thank you so much!

Working on Being Crafty

Published March 18, 2016 by lynn k scott

If you have Facebook, or worse, Pinterest, you can become bombarded by a multitude of crafts, home “shortcuts” or “hacks”.  From upcycling old clothes to any number of DIY (Do It Yourself) crafts and decorations.

Alas, I fell into the trap.  I admit, I’m thrifty as they come.  I am trying to create simple, but crafty, pieces, while bringing some holiday cheer into the house at the same time.

I saw this adorable Easter-themed piece on Facebook and thought, “I can do that”.  It took me a couple weeks to gather the necessary items.  Part of that is my fault, because I wanted to find the items on sale.  I’m a couponer and I don’t pay full retail when I don’t have to.

I had several glass pieces I could use at home.  I made a quick trip to Michael’s to get two crafting items and decided I was ready to put this centerpiece together.  I knew I wasn’t assembling exactly the way I had seen it done, but I was using what I had on hand.  I think it turned out pretty good.  Good enough to get to me attempt another centerpiece down the road.  What do you think?

20160314_062408.jpg

Now the “Welcome Spring” sign wasn’t part of the initial centerpiece, but it was there and thought it matched nicely.  Quite frankly, I’m ready for Spring and then Summer.  As for the peeps, I know the original design broke them all apart.  My OCD wouldn’t let me do this, because the one I separated, didn’t stand like I wanted it to.  I quickly “reattached” it to the other peeps and used 4 at a time and then pressed them into the glass.

All in all, I have a pretty design that lasts a couple weeks.  The peeps seems to be shrinking now.  I don’t mind really; except that my daughter is eyeing them like a lion stalking it’s prey.  She has “sampled” two peeps because they weren’t as pretty as when I first made the centerpiece.

I will continue my quest to be crafty.
