When I saw this I thought what a perfect gift for my husband. You see he bought me a television for the bedroom years ago and hung it on the wall before most people were hanging them on the wall. Of course with the TV came a remote - so it's my remote, right?  Really the only time he touches it is when I lose it - (which I do daily) he seems to be the one that always finds it so I think wrapping the remote and letting him use it for a day with some candy attached is perfect! I hope I can actually give it up for a day - he's not a fan of Bravo or HGTV. Also, I came across this cake which is pretty much the same recipe as my Texas Sheet Cake. I just never thought of baking it in my cast iron skillet and digging the center out to fill with ice cream... yum! We're all a fan of chocolate so this might make the Father's Day dessert list. Yesterday I put a cheesecake recipe up that he said he wanted - why not just sweets for his special day - I'm game!

Do they still make soap on a rope? Happy Wednesday... Enjoy! 

P.S. The dress sewing that my granddaughters have been experimenting with is still in progress... pictures coming soon!

Yesterday I went in for my hair consultation for my locs. It's a little overwhelming trying to decide the size of locs, but this is what I decided.

Tuesday is the big day and I can't wait!

It's interesting though the responses I get from people when I say that I'm getting locs. I've gotten everything from that's interesting to don't you just let your hair get really dirty and don't comb it?

I'm well aware of how most of the world stereotypes black women by their hair. I think I've shared in past blogs how people approach me or don't approach me depending on the style of my hair.

I decided a few years ago that natural was going to be it for me. No more chemical relaxers and no flatiron on my hair daily - I'm just going to do me and people can make all the prejudgements that they want. If you're going to make a decision about me based on my hair I don't want you in my life anyway.

Have An Open Heart

As I was sorting through pictures this morning I came across pictures of my seven-year-old granddaughter with girls that she met for the first time on a 2 day stay in Prescott. I was drawn to the smiles on their faces and the love in their eyes. They met, accepted each other, and acted as if they had been lifelong friends. Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
