I know I’m getting older not because of the gray hairs that sprinkle across my hairline. I know I’m getting older not because of the recently created, closed Facebook group for my 20th high school reunion. I know I’m getting older not because the goddaughter whose diapers I used to change is now a college … More I don’t waste food, water, money, time and talent
Too bad I don’t have Amazon Prime Video. If I did, I’d watch Z: The Beginning of Everything when the series airs Friday, January 27, 2017. The trailer has been airing on TV, but I paid it no mind. I don’t subscribe to the streaming service, but Wednesday, through my membership with the New York … More Sherring’s Goodwatch: Z: The Beginning of Everything
Pesto sauce. I made my own pesto sauce today. To some, this might not seem like a big deal, but for someone who’s had pesto sauce once, twice, maybe thrice in her life, this is very much a big deal. Also making it a big deal is that up until recently, I consumed my pasta … More Penne for Your Thoughts
via Daily Prompt: Invitation Last July, I took a girls’ trip to New Orleans to attend Essence Music Festival. The trip was months in the making. Well, years actually. I’d been wanting to attend Essence Music Festival for over ten years. Year after year and month after month as an Essence magazine subscriber I’d be … More Not Without Me!

A woman lept from a bench at the bus stop just as the bus arrived and opted to walk instead after … More Let’s Get FitBit!
God Help the Child by Toni Morrison My rating: 3 of 5 stars “Take a number” is what some might say when I say that Toni Morrison is one of my favorite writers. I wonder if I stand alone in saying that sometimes aspects of her storylines confuse me. It happened with Song of Solomon. … More Sherring’s Goodreads: God Help the Child
My calendar has been marked with the release date of When the Bough Breaks for months. After watching a version of the trailer on Facebook for the first time, September 9, 2016, could not come quickly enough. From the creepy, slowed down remake of Brandy and Monica’s 1998 hit song The Boys is Mine to a … More Sherring’s Goodwatch: Morris Chestnut
I don’t like plain oatmeal. It’s gross. I’d prefer not to eat it all, but in my lifetime, I’ve read dozens of articles about eating well, and oatmeal always makes the list. Its bountiful benefits include being a good source of energy with protein, helping to regulate cholesterol and blood pressure, being full of fiber, … More Plain Oatmeal is Gross
I have to laugh at the ignorance and naïveté of my youth. When you grow up a certain way, it’s hard to imagine things any other way, until you venture out into the great big world on your own. When I was growing up, the only nuts I knew about were peanuts. Shelled, unshelled, salted, … More Being Nuts is its Own Reward
