Snickerdoodle…

My Word for Wednesday this week is

SNICKERDOODLE
snickerdoodle

Snickerdoodles are sugar cookies that are rolled in cinnamon.
I love cookies of all types andI love the name Snickerdoodle.
I think the origin of the cookie is German.
I grew up near Amish folks and they made these cookies.
I don’t know if they called them Snickerdoodles or if it is
a derivative of the German name.
Doesn’t matter they are good cookies whatever they’re called and
who wouldn’t want to try something sweet called Snickerdoodle?

There are other things that are Snickerdoodle;
milkshakes, lattes, ice cream, muffins, pies and candy are some of them.
I haven’t had any of these things, but I would be willing to try them.

There have also been candles and body washes and scents in Snickerdoodle.
These are usually sold at Christmas time.
The candles sound interesting, but I wouldn’t be interested in the others.
I just don’t like to smell like food.

Friday fill-ins and celebrating…

Elizabeth from Silver’s Reviews came up with all four of the fill-ins
for Hilary’s hop Friday Four Fill In Fun at Feeling Beachie.

Here are my fill-ins:

  1. Do you ever wonder what your purpose is in life?
  2. Why would I dye my hair when I like it grey?
  3. Creating something beautiful is not to be taken for granted it is a wonderful gift.
  4. I think that more people need to get a grip and chill, life is too short to be upset.

 And now to
Celebrate The Small Things

This week I was treated to lunch by a friend.
We don’t get to spend much time together
and this was a special surprise treat.

Work was crazy busy this week but all went well
and lots got done. That’s a great feeling!

Today I am linking to
Word for Wednesday

My word is

STUMBLEBUM

noun,
clumsy, incompetent person, derelict, alcoholic,
destitute or down and out person

That’s the official definition, but my gramma and ma
used the word quite often to refer to their husbands.
Neither husband was incompetent, derelict or destitute.
They did however sometimes have a bit too much hooch
and that made them seem a little down and out and definitely clumsy.

When I was a kid I thought it was a term of endearment and maybe it was.
No one seemed angry with the men when they were in stumblebum mode.
In fact, there was a lot of laughter when the stumblebums were being…clumsy.
Now, if stumblebum mode got to the falling down and embarrassing stage,
I’m not saying it ever got to that stage, but if it did that could be a whole ‘nother word.
We’ll just leave it here with stumblebum.
