Popular Reading on the Revelings

My little blog will turn 4 years old this coming August.   I’ve been doing some semi-serious writing in that amount of time.  Writing has been my go to place for telling my family stories, and sharing thoughts, wishes and advice.  Looking back I decided it was time to reminisce about some of my most popular posts here on my revelings.   Some posts are funny, some are serious, and others just make me glad I’m sharing my life stories.



Denim Oh Beautiful Denim – My love for denim, wearing denim and making things from denim shines through in this story.



The Garden Leaves are Everywhere – My love of gardening and plants always leads me to share stories during the summer about my gardening experiences.



 Life According to Evan –  A few pictures and tales About Evan’s photography skills.  This post led to my Evanisms page.


Taco Salad for a Crowd – This is one of my family’s favorite go to summer recipes.  So easy to prepare, and so tasty too!

That Old Dining Room Table – My very first Revelings story.  This post has a lot of family history and remains one of my personal favorites.  Funny thing about this post I did not have any pictures posted with it.

This story marks my 260th blog post!  Wow. My hope is to continue my writing and story sharing, and I’d love it if you come along and join me for my Revelings adventure.  Enjoy some reading time, friends.  We are travelling home today, and I’m looking forward to getting back to my writing desk tomorrow.  Here’s to starting off your week with lots of positivity and some good family time.  Happy trails everyone.

My April Fool’s on Evan

If you are a reader of my Evanisms page you will have seen what a little jokester Evan was on this past Sunday, which was April Fool’s Day.  Being the diligent Grandma that I am I decided to have a little April Fool’s fun of my own.

I found a post on one of the Mom blog’s that I follow- Money Saving Mom for a little April Fool’s present.  The print out was to make a package of “donut seeds”.  There was a pdf link to print out the package and then glue it together, and in the package you place your favorite Cheerios, these are the donut seeds!!  I knew this would be a great little April fool’s for Evan once I saw it.

Here’s a picture of the package I gave to Evan.  I waited until we were done eating breakfast to give it to him.  I said, “Evan, I got you something to plant outside.”  Evans says, “Really Grandma what is it?”  I hand him the little “seed” package, and tell him its “seeds” to grow his own donuts.  Everyone else at the breakfast table is talking this up, and excited for Evan.  Evan takes the packet, and reads a little bit of it and then opens it to look at the “seeds”.  Evan says, “Grandma, this is just Cheerios.”  And I smile and pause, and tell Evan, “April Fool’s, I got you!!” 

It was a fun way to start the day, especially when Evan got in the spirit of the little jokes all on his own.  Happy April everyone.  Wishing you all a wonderful Spring!
