Peach State says: Time To Put the Feet Up!

I am finally home from a day long trip to my home town. My niece graduated from High School today and for the first time in many years I drove beyond my parents house. It was fun to see all the changes and even more…what had stayed familiar and unchanged. Looking down the list of graduates was like looking at an old church roll.

After walking across my old college campus, where the high school graduation was held, I finally found all of my siblings and their spouses. We endured an hour of introductions and special music and finally started the handling out of the diplomas. BUT WAIT! Instructions were given 3 times on how to clap…when to clap…no noise makers!

“Please contain you clapping and cheering for your graduate until the entire row is complete.”
The third graduate stepped over to receive her diploma as cheers and horns sounded!
I am glad my parents decided to leave after my niece walked across the stage.

We gathered to have lunch together and celebrate the day…then we all went our own ways and headed home. I picked up a couple of things for dinner and a movie!

Who wants to cook? Not me!
And the movie called Joyful Noise that no one in my family wants to see…except for me!

So I will close…with comfy clothes now on…and my Almond Joy Mocha beside my chair…the movie is starting. Enjoy your evening!

Peach State says: Almond Joy Mocha…Mmm!

I just love the Starbucks’ Mocha Coconut Frappacino! It tastes like an Almond Joy shake. The only thing better is making it at home for a lot less money! Want to know how to make an Almond Joy Mocha?

A couple of weeks ago I found a new product…

It is wonderful and can be diluted with espresso or coffee. Simply pour it over a little ice!

Then add, to taste, International Delight Creamer…Almond Joy.


You can serve over the ice or blend with ice achieving a Frapp, shake like, consistency.

I just wanted to share this wonderful Coffee recipe! Let me know what you think!
Have a great day!
