Mother's day came and went. I got another tattoo. My son's birth date, which is also my father's birthday who is in heaven.  

My mother's day gift from my hubby. My son's birth date. 💙 #inkaddict A post shared by Freda Mans (@fredasphotos) on May 18, 2018 at 2:38pm PDT
It was a gift from the hubby.
What did you do for your special day? Or what did you do for your mom?
We also celebrated Victoria day here. 
Firecrackers popping off all around us, while my dog turns into a fraidy cat. Yup. She is so tough, until a firecracker booms.

Twice As Nice by Sandra Liu (22)

Kindle: 628 KBPrint: 108 pagesPublisher: Cozy Foodie; 1 edition (Dec 18 2012)ASIN: B00AQCJLB6

Liu astutely shows the reader how to save time and money by preparing a larger amount of chicken, and freezing the extras. But unlike other “cook ahead” books, you don’t get stuck eating the same dish over and over. Each time you want to use the chicken, you take out just what you need, and then make a fresh dish from among the recipes provided (and they are tasty!). 

Recipes are organized into well thought-out sections on “Salads”, “Soups and Stews”, “Sandwiches, Pitas, or Tortillas”, “Pastas”, “Rice”, and “One-Dish Dinners.” They cover the full range from the quick-and-easy staple (chicken salad sandwiches) to the wow-your-guests spectacle (chicken, rice, and mango lettuce wraps). The recipes for the chicken with red mole sauce and the chicken and chickpea stew are top choices that would each be well worth the price of purchase by itself.

#Win A Father's Day Book (US)

Father's day. Such a bittersweet day for me. 
Most of you know the story of my dad and me. If you don't, here's a quick refresher.
I met my dad when I was 32. He passed away when I was 33. Yup. I had a whole year with my dad. Don't feel sorry for me. Be happy that I had that year. It was the best year of my life.
PIctured above is my dad. This is literally the only photo I have of him. I had another on an old phone of mine, but do you think I can find that phone?!

Honoring our parents is done once a year on a special day just for them. Even though we should show our appreciation and love for them every day. 

Today, I am sharing a book that is about the heir to the Dollar General fortune. His grandfather and father have paved the way for Cal Turner JR to have an amazing life, so he in turn wrote his story down. Sharing his appreciation and love for them inside.


Longtime Dollar General CEO Cal Turner, Jr. shares his extraordinary life as heir to the company founded by his fath…

REVIEW: So this was one movie that I wasn't waiting any amount of time to see.  I loved the first movie so much, I just had to see the second right away. Usually the sequel is a bit of a letdown. Not this one though. Finally we have a sequel that is just as exciting, action-packed and funny as the first. I appreciated that there was a proper story too. H…
