This is the perfect time of year for a warm piece of pie with a scoop of ice cream on top.  Slowly the ice cream melts and cascades over the crisp crust, enticing every taste bud in your mouth.  You have the perfect combination, with a taste of heaven thrown in. That is, of course, if you’re not on a diet and it makes no difference at all if you are overloading yourself with carbs and sugar.

You could remove the crust and just eat the innards I suppose, but then you’d need to eliminate all the sugar, which would take care of the innards and the ice cream, so what’s the point?  One day a year, we should be able to enjoy a piece of pie, right?  I mean they’ve designated a day for just that thing.  I think it’s our duty to respect the person who thought it up.  That person actually spent some time setting up an actual holiday for just that purpose.

There’s a pie shop in our town, which offers free pie on Wednesdays with the purchase of a meal.  This might be just the right time to enjoy the deliciousness.  I will go in and have a salad, with no bread, a glass of water and a scrumptious piece of French silk pie for dessert.

This is the mind of me, when I’m on a diet.  I try to rationalize all the reasons why I should eat something that isn’t diet worthy.  What’s one day going to matter?  I can always start again tomorrow.  In fact tomorrow is Belly Laugh Day.  I’ll bet I can burn off every calorie by laughing my head off.




As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    I read this just before lunch. It was pure torture. If you don’t see any comments for a while, I took a lunch break.

        Too bad about the tire, may have gotten cold enough to lose the seal around the rim. Hope it isn’t a slow leak. Our car is in the shop. It would not crank at all on Friday, but an hour later it did – needed a tune up. Our mechanic has medical issues, so we just let him have the car for a week while we rent one. Should be back to normal tomorrow.

        I really dislike winter, but now with my lack of work I don’t have to go outside much.

        I like that you are keeping a positive outlook. With three days of rehabilitation per week, I love the days when I can stay home.

  5. I thought pie day was March 17th—but what do I know…I know I like pie—cherry, apple, and chocolate with whipped cream topping and of course a good key lime….
