Mercy Warren Otis
Grammy Linda/Behind My Red Door asked us a very good question this week, What's in a name? You can read her complete post here ....... http://behindmyreddoor.blogspot.com/
Anyway, this question got me to thinking, (I know, that's twice this week...scary huh ) And I decided to take the name plunge.... so I can sign everything with the same name. When I began blogging in January , I did and didn't want to use my own name I felt the same way about the names of my children/grandchildren...but again, sometimes I have used our real names.........I've made it all very confusing.........
From the time I first visited her blog "Be It Ever So Humble", I have been a huge fan of Mrs. Mordecai and her pen names. http://be-it-ever-so-humble.blogspot.com/ . I know other bloggers who also use pen names. So, here goes. The lady of 'The Stone house', ( the stone house being a homestead home built out of sandstone, which would make a post topic for another day, ) ( I smile here, and you're yawning ...lol )has decided to completely go by the pen name, Mercy Otis.
Why Mercy Otis???
Humm. Well, she was a strong willed woman, mother of 5, who was influential in the cause of Freedom during our American Revolution.
Still with me? ( brave souls...)
At this point in my post I had meant to tell you, in a nut shell mind you, a little about Mercy Otis....If you truly want to know more about this real life woman, you can find her on Google! lol
So, 'Mercy Otis' wishes to remind you all that today is National Lemon Meringue Pie Day, and to indulge in some lemony goodness!
Have a great Week end... see you next week!
ooppps..............can't close just yet.
I was looking at my Sis's post today, and she has a fun chocolate cake recipe.
5 minutes in a microwave! can you beat that? I'm sure you could fill a cookie sheet with mugs full of cake batter and do enough for Sunday dinner desert! Go check it out and get the recipe and tell her hello.
Looks yummy to me.
Now I'll say...
Have a great weekend everyone, and don't forget to eat some lemony goodness! Oh, and some 5 minute chocolate cake!
maybe we can compare notes next time we meet.......♥
