August 24- Chew on This

A few days ago we posed you another question to chew on-   Today was a delight because…

Carol- The weather feels like summer so we went went on a leisurely bike ride and stopped off for a treat of appeltaart and prosecco. This little restaurant has been on our bucket list to do before we move.

Lori- Spent some time in the sunshine enjoying the cool breeze and focusing on the beauty around me.  It always brings me joy.   Working on some new project planning, both for home and business= pure delight!

Next up-  we are thinking art-   We want to know? Who is your favorite artist and favorite piece?

August 19- Chew On This

A few days ago, we asked you to ‘chew’ on this question: If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?

We took some time to ponder this and our thoughts brought us to the following responses:

Carol-  Laugh at least once a day, the good kind of laugh that comes from deep in the belly. 

Lori-  Even when we don’t understand something or even agree with it-   it doesn’t mean it’s ‘wrong’, plus we can always choose to respect each other and agree to disagree.    More love, less indifference and hate.

What are your thoughts?  We would love to hear them!

Next up-    We want to know-

 Today was a delight because…

August 15- Chew on This

Can you believe we are half-way through August and before we know it-  Autumn will arrive?    I know-  hard to believe isn’t it?   Right now we’ll focus on getting the most out of what’s left of our summer fun before we shift into the slower days of Autumn and Winter.

Speaking of summer fun and making the most out of the sunshine-   We last posed you the question: What’s the last beach you went to?

Carol- Wijk aan Zee, NL 

Lori- Make that a double dose answer-    Mine was also Wijk aan Zee-   my favorite ‘local’ beach.  Actually, probably my favorite beach in this country of the ones I’ve explored.


Next up to chew on:  If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?

August 11- Chew on This

So a few days ago was asked you that burning question that I know you want the answer to, so we won’t keep you waiting any longer.

Have you ever licked a 9-volt battery?

Carol- Yes, who hasn’t?

Lori- Count me in amongst the yes crowd.


Next up-    Since it’s summer and hopefully beach weather where you are-   What is the last beach you went to ?

August 7- Chew on This

Happy Sunday!   Hope you are all having a fun and relaxing weekend, enjoying whatever brings your soul joy!

A few days ago we asked you:  What’s the next book you want to read?

We both love books, reading, plus hearing what books others enjoy, so would love to hear your response.  It may spark some reading inspiration in us.

Carol-  Five Presidents..My Extraordinary Journey with Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Ford,  by Clint Hill with Lisa McCubbin

Lori-  Winners-  Danielle Steel    When my grandmother was alive, we would exchange books to read.  She was a HUGE Danielle Steel fan, so every time she came out with a new book, one of us would buy it, read and then share with the other.     Grandma only read fictional love stories, so I never shared the other genres that I read with her.   I guess most of us are fans of a sappy love story.    When grandma passed, I stopped reading Danielle Steel-  I tried, but I never could get through more than a few pages and I would put it down.

About a month and a half ago, I was browsing a thrift store with my dear ‘chosen’ sister and I came across the aforementioned book.    I decided that it was time to read another Danielle S. book in honor of my grandma, and also with an actual book as opposed to digital (my preferred reading method these days).   Grandma passed before digital books became a thing-   but something tells me she would have never embraced ‘e-books’, but then again-  she surprised me more than once in my lifetime.   I miss her all the time.


Now for something we can’t wait to ask: *insert laughter here*  Have you ever licked a 9-volt battery?   

Inquiring minds want to know-   Don’t keep us guessing!   Our answer and a new question to ‘chew’ on coming in a few days!


August 3- Chew on This

Happy August and thanks for continuing on this journey with us.  We are grateful!

A few days ago we asked: What are three staple ingredients that are always in your kitchen?

Carol- Spices, tea, ginger.

Lori- coffee, raw almonds, spices of various sorts.


Next up-  What’s the next book you want to read?  

July 31- Chew on This

As we bring this month to a close and the clean slate of August is before us, we want to answer the last question we left you to ‘chew on’: What are you most grateful for right now?

Carol- Love and friendship.

Lori- My response is very similar to Carols, only I’m adding family into the mix-  so family, love and friendship.


Next up-  We want to know:  What are THREE staple ingredients that are always in your kitchen?

We will be answering this question, plus posing a new one in our next Chew On This-  coming in a few days!

As always, we are interested in what YOU have to say.  We love having conversations about a plethora of topics, so feel free to drop us a note if you have a question or a subject you’d like to discuss.

Have you shared with us your own ‘creative thing’?   If not, we would love to hear about them.

Lori- Did some sugar crafting for an upcoming cake order.

Earlier this week we asked:   What’s the craziest thing you’ve done for love?

Lori-  Moved 5000 miles away, fell in love and got married to my guy-    The crazy ride continues 🙂
