Taking a Break From Blogging

taking-a-break

Hi all, as I am sure you have noticed, my blogging has been slowing down significantly as of late. I have had some pretty big changes in my personal life, and my ability to take the time to do many posts has greatly diminished. I am not one who likes to do things halfway, and I feel that I have stretched myself too thin in many areas of my life.

After much consideration, I have decided to take a break from blogging. My plan is to take a few months to dedicate to planning and refocusing. At the end of that time, I will determine if I still want to continue with my blog, or if it is time for it to retire. Thank you for your understanding.

High Value $0.75/1 Reynold’s Wrap Coupon

reynolds_wrap

You can print a high value coupon for $0.75 off ONE (1) Reynolds Wrap Product. If your store doubles, this is a fabulous value! And I have ever mentioned that foil is my best friend?  No gluten-free household should be without foil.  We pretty much use it for everything.  If you are going to a cookout and are concerned about the integrity of the grill, you can just wrap your food in foil.  We have done that at innumerable family picnics.

Need some more uses for foil?  Try these:

  • Use it to sharpen scissors:  Just fold a strip of foil a few times and cut through it with the scissors.
  • Cut a piece of foil about the size of your oven floor and stick it in.  Next time a pan drips all over your oven, you have minimal cleanup; just replace the foil!
  • If you set your steel wool on top of a piece of foil, it will keep it from rusting.
