Summer Blog Break

August 3, 2017

We interrupt this blog for breaking news. “Humor Me” is taking a summer blog break to relax and celebrate birthday number two for my two sweet girls and the birth of their new baby sister – all my granddaughters! Whoop-ee! I’ll be the youngest grandma around. (Humor Me!)

Look for the next post the first full week of September when this blog returns to inform and entertain the masses!

Apple Pickin’ Time

September 29, 2016

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The foliage puts on its best show. The days are crisp. And the apples are oh, so delicious! It’s time for apple picking – Courtland, Macintosh, Red Gala, Braeburn … Yum! Yum! Yum!


Getting ready to pick.


Rows and rows of apples!


A perfect specimen.



What to do with all these apples? No problem! It’s apple crisp, apple cake, apple pie, applesauce, and a bushel of apple books!

Apple-Cranberry Cake

Take a bite of out of this delicious apple-cranberry cake and one of these yummy books.

Summer Blog Break

We interrupt this blog for breaking news. “Humor Me” is taking a summer blog break. It will return the first week of September to continue to inform and entertain the masses. See you then!

They Have Arrived!

September 10, 2015

Contrary to what others may believe, it’s my opinion that not all newborns are the most beautiful babies anyone has ever seen – unless they’re your own. With that said …

Drum roll, please!

I’d like to announce that my husband and I are officially grandparents to two gorgeous baby girls. It doesn’t matter how pudgy, scrawny, blotchy, wrinkly, bald, pimply, or goofy-looking they are. They are ours, and with the exception of our daughter, these girls are not only the most beautiful babies I’ve ever seen, but their personalities are already over the top!

Ta Da!

The Girls!

Silence is Golden

Silence is Golden

Why are you so noisy?

Why are you so noisy?

Wait! Is it lunchtime?

Wait! Is it lunchtime?

Me! Me! Feed me first!

Me! Me! Feed me first!

Life is so exhausting Life is so exhausting!

Life can be so exhausting!

What are you looking at? My hat? Get over it!

What are you looking at? My hat?
Get over it!

These girls are going to add so much joy to our lives. We’re such lucky grandparents!
