CIJ: Christmas Goodies

July 7, 2009

One of my favorite childhood  memories of Christmas Goodies is the  Special Package of Homemade Candies sent to My family by My Grandmother Ewers   each year she would send a box of her home made delectable goodies.  And her timing would always be just a week just before Christmas. In the box would contain Divinity, Fudge and Jellied Candies, and Peanut brittle. Oh and you could smell the sweet aroma before even opening the box. That was a true treasure to indulge in and she  would even send cookies for me to set out just for Santa Claus . Very fond memories of her goodies, Yummy. Another Favorite of Mine Was an Idaho Spud Candy bar which can only be found In or around Idaho it’s taste is indescribable and no it does not contain any ingredients’ of  a potato for those of you that may be wondering, Sure you could buy the Idaho Spud Candy bar any time of the year  but My dad would  always hide a few inside the Christmas Tree for me to find on Christmas Morning. idahospud_home and since I no longer have access to these by means of my local grocery store ,I have ordered them from Owyhee Candy Company just for my children can experience the wonderful yummy mouth watering   confection.

What are some of your favorite  Holiday goodies? I would love to hear about them..

Ode to a House

June 17, 2009

I was searching  Google Maps looking for my child home where I spent  many of my growing up in  , Typed in the address I could not find it , so what I ended up doing was locating the local mom and pop store that was on the corner about 2 blocks away, and followed the road,  Mind you I have not been to this area in over 11 years.. My sweet Child hood home has had a complete makeover and the address has changed.. I had so many good memories on that street and in that home, I learned how to tie my shoes, Shot  arrows at bales of  hay  with  my Compound Bow for deer hunting practice  with my dad  (R. I.P.) … Planted many flowers with my mother and played in the yard with my dog Moose  who probably weighed  a pound soaking wet… Had my first crush on the Newspaper boy..   It was kind of sad  in away that is hard to describe. I continued down the street  a bout a block or two just to check out the rest of the neighborhood.. I all I can say is what a difference  a decade makes.. So to that  house that gave me so many memories I thank you and I will cherish them forever..

Ahh the days of childhood

April 21, 2009

Remember being a child and not having to worry about bills, or a mortgage? Your biggest worry was passing a test in school or weather not that boy/girl liked you. The endless days of being out side and playing tag or red rover or going to the beach or park with your parents and swinging as high as you can like you were flying to outer space, Or being brave enough to go on the big slide or how about finding sycamore tree seeds and throwing them up in the air and watching them travel down like a helicopter, To be young again and finding joy in the simplest things, Now I get to watch my kids enjoy life and experience all that I did,It just puts a smile on my face and warms my heart to know that they are content and happy
