For the season....

Happy Wednesday to you!  I hope you are having a good week thus far.

Here is something that is good to have around for "children" to enjoy.


2 cups animal crackers
1 box chocolate Teddy Grahams (I used Annie's organic chocolate bunnies)
1 box honey Teddy Grahams (I used a package of Earth Fare Teddy Grahams)
2 cups small pretzel twists
2 cups raisins (optional)
1 large bag M &Ms in Halloween/autumn colors
2 cups miniature marshmallows (optional)
 - Mix together; serve!

Very tempting!

There are some "words of wisdom" I want to share with you this morning.  When  you are closing your locked car door, be sure to have your finger out of the way!  If you are unsuccessful in that, just don't pull your finger out of the partially-closed, locked door!  Needless to say, I am still learning how to deal with such an event!  I presently have eight stitches in my left forefinger!  The hour and a half I spent in the doctor's office on Tuesday afternoon was not on my schedule!  Typing is a bit of a chore, so I will probably be missing from my usual blog rounds for a few days.  Also, regular posts to my blog are "iffy."  I will do as much as I find I am able.

There will probably not be very much cooking going on around here, either.  As you can tell, the above recipe needed very little expertise.:-)

I have noticed new followers, and I appreciate you coming along!  Also, Sharon and Buttercup have their scarves on the way to them!

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. Bless your heart! I'll try to remember those helpful hints, in case I find myself with a finger in the wrong place at the wrong time. In the meantime, take care of yourself and don't worry about us....we'll keep checking till we find you again!

  2. Oh Nellie, I am so sorry to hear that you hurt your finger. OUCH!!!
    I will be very careful!!

  3. Oh gosh Nellie I'm so sorry. That happened to me a few years ago in a car door and it was excruciating! I broke a bone in my finger and lost the fingernail. I hope it heals quickly!

  4. Hi Nellie , Hope you are better and not to worry we will be checking on you and your progress , thank you for the advice , I will watch where I put my fingers .
    As soon as I read your post , I went to the store to get the ingredients to make this wonderful snack for my kids after school , hope your finger heals quickly ,thanks so much for sharing :).

  5. I am so sorry to read this Nellie! Take care of yourself. Hugs!!

  6. Hello Nellie...Sounds like an interesting snack.

    Got caught up on some of your posts.

    Thank you SOOOOOO much for your visits to my blog. I'm aways happy to see that you have stopped to visit.

    I would have loved that country market! Susan

  7. P.S. Oh Nellie, I am SO SORRY about the finger, too. Cheeze, that must have hurt something wicked. Hope it heals swiftly and completely. Susan

  8. OUCH AND A HALF!!! (I just had chills go all over my body) That's what you call a lesson learned the hard way. Please tell me your left hand is your non-dominant hand?

  9. Nellie, So sorry you are hurt...we live and learn...some times the hard way. I always worry about children around car doors. I agree with Ms.A..I get a tummy flip when I think about fingers or toes getting hurt. Take care. xoxo,Susie

  10. Oh Nellie, how so unfortunate that you hurt your finger in the car door. It could happen to anyone.
    I hope that you will heal quickly.
    I'll miss your post but I understand.
    Speedy healing.

  11. I'm so sorry about your poor finger. I hope you mend quickly. Sending you a few prayers from MI.

  12. Oh, Nellie- You poor poor thing! I am so sorry you hurt your finger in the door like that! I bet that throbbed with a life of its own.

    Your "mix" sounds great and I will save it for a treat for the kids. xo Diana

    ps. I hope it heals up quickly.

  13. Oh my gosh..I am so sorry to hear this..I know how terrible something like that can be! My prayers are with you for a speedy recovery.


  14. Hi Nellie,

    I was just reading today's post and saw that you mentioned your finger.

    I'm so sorry to hear of your finger accident. it can be so painful and awkward to have and injury on your hand. I do hope it heels fast and straight:) (mine didn't heal perfectly straight, but it works just fine)

    Don't worry about us. You just get better real soon. I hope you have some help. You do so much I bet it is driving you nuts not to be able to do everything!

  15. OH NELLIE! I did that once and I will never EVER forget it. The pain is so intense. I am so sorry, my friend.
