When You Feel Like Quitting- Inspired by Perseverance

ray-of-light-1

To Give Up or Not to Give Up-That is the Question…    Today’s post was supposed to be a different topic.  I spent several hours on a cute graphic art project that I couldn’t wait to share with you, but when I went to save it tonight my computer said that an error occurred and it deleted the whole project!!  How heartbreaking to have wasted all that time, knowing even if I redo it, I won’t be able to draw it exactly the same.   Do you know what thoughts went through my head?  (after lots of Oh No’s, gasping and sighing) – “I lost all of that work that I had worked so hard to perfect!  I should just quit!  I will never be able to recreate my vision … Continue Reading

Tip of the Week- Cooking w/Cast Iron & Creative Grilled Cheese Ideas

evenly browned and crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside!

Today I am inspired by cast iron skillets and grilled cheese sandwiches (Doesn’t take much to excite me, huh :)  ) because in my opinion they just make the best grilled cheese!   On a side note , I also love making breakfast foods in cast iron skillets.  Why cast iron?  I find that cast iron tends to get things just the right crispness on the outside , but yet soft inside.   My pancakes and omelets come out perfectly golden brown, and the bacon is more crispy.  Why is this?  It is because cast iron is an even conductor of heat (meaning stuff gets evenly browned).   What about saving money?  They also save you money because these pans can last your whole lifetime!  In fact, many people have passed … Continue Reading

Seeing the World for the First Time

Just a funny picture I took to make you smile.  :)

If you read my very first 2 part Blog post (To Everything There is a Season), then you know about the birth of Fluffy’s 2 kittens.   (If you want to catch up and read this story in miracles click here)   Today the kittens are 3 weeks old.  The white kitten started to open her eyes at around the 10 day mark and the black one was lagging behind about a day or 2.  When they first started to open their eyes they were just little partially open slits.  Now they are wide open.  So cute!  They are growing so fast….     The interesting thing about kittens is that they are born both blind and deaf!  Their tiny little ears are folded in and of course their eyes are … Continue Reading

Tip of The Week- How to Fix a Waterlogged Cell Phone

How to fix a waterlogged Cell Phone

A couple of months ago my cell phone fell in the bathtub.  Don’t ask how- it’s really quite stupid.  I am not the only one who has had this “O crap!” moment.  I have friends who have dropped their phones in toilets, sinks and who knows what else ( I am thinking swimming pools this time of year).  Aside from cell phones being expensive, no one wants to lose their contacts or other important phone stuff that they really need.  There IS a way to fix waterlogged cell phones though, so don’t worry just yet and give this a try:   First you will want to take your phone out of the water source as quickly as possible (I am not sure how well this method works with phones that … Continue Reading

To Everything There is a Season Part 2

Another Picture of the kittens at 1 week old-Napping together

Missed Part 1 of this Story?  Click Here It happened on a Monday night around supper time.  I went outside to care for the cat colony (you will learn more about that in the future if you follow my blog!) and saw a puddle on the back step.  One of the kittens I had adopted, and was planning on bringing indoors this winter, had been looking chubby around the middle.  I had guessed she was pregnant but figured she had a couple of weeks at least until she would give birth.  Boy was I wrong!  When I saw that puddle on the back step, I had this feeling that her water broke (even though I didn’t know the signs of cat labor haha).   “Fluffy”  ran over to me and climbed … Continue Reading

A New Kind of Ice-Cream Sandwich

As the saying goes- “You learn something new every day!”   Today was one of those days.  Although at times frustrating, Life is FULL of ridiculous and funny moments and with the right perspective and sense of humor, you can find plenty of things out there to keep you laughing your way through life!   Let me start out by saying that today actually started out quite frustrating.  Due to some issues with our small town not getting a good signal with ATT, my fiance and I decided it was time to switch our cell phones to Verizon.  My Motorola Atrix Smart Phone was replaced with a new Droid Razr.  I spent quite a long time on the phone with customer service about a few different things (mostly to do … Continue Reading

To Everything There Is A Season

A Picture of our adorable Aussie "Kassie"

Welcome to Live Inspired , My brand new website/blog (www.weliveinspired.com)!  While my first blog story starts out a little sad, I promise you it is a story of miracles!  Miracles are all around us.  Some are tiny miracles , so you have to be on the lookout for them.  Others are more obvious- like my blog story here today… ♦ A few weeks ago, my dog Kassie got suddenly ill and to make a long story short was in acute renal failure.  We knew she was getting older, but she had been a seemingly healthy, happy dog until her kidneys stopped working.  When we took her to the vet he talked to us about having her put down, but her pain had ceased,  so we decided to bring her home.  … Continue Reading
