Just as a shake of salt or a bit of herb enhances the flavor of our food, joy enhances all the flavors of our life. It brings me joy to find new ideas and inspirations for body, mind and soul and to share what I find. And then to get things done! I love gardens, color, organization and whimsy. Garage sales and coupons, hammer and screwdriver, computer and camera are my tools in trade.
Currently, our household includes two big guys who also bring me joy. Wheels is fascinated with anything that has wheels and the engines that make them turn. His career involves BIG wheels and BIG engines on BIG toys and BIG fleets of them. Bytes, our son, is a computer guru with his own enterprise(s). You will meet them in their enthusiastic role as taste testers and (less enthusiastic) project muscle men.
When we moved a thousand miles away from family, one of the things I missed dearly was the exchange of recipes and ideas as we gathered regularly to celebrate holidays, birthdays and just because. This blog continues the spirit of sharing the secret of good eats, fun and ideas about home and family and living life to the fullest! I’d be delighted if you’d join the sharing by leaving a comment here or on facebook. You can also contact me at Charlene@apinchofjoy.com or via the contact button, lower right.
Mainly we are just going to see where this wagon goes! Grab hold and come along for the ride!

Like that pharmacy technician gig I saw in the paper, applied and was hired the same day — just because I wanted to know what it was. Guess that says something about how my mind works, doesn’t it? But let’s not go there ——-mm ‘kay?
