                                                                    CHAPPY DEBBIE'S WEEK-IN-REVIEW

              What I spied from the deck of me ship
                   January 2015-January 2016

Ahoy Mateys! It's been awhile since I've posted to me!
I have decided to change things up a bit. I will be posting just once a week with my "Week-in-Review" posts. I will be sharing various things that I spied throughout the week. I hope ye like it. This first post mostly covers all of last year, just to get me feet wet with this new venture. Beginning the first week of February, it will be a normal weekly post. So, welcome aboard, find yerself a nice spot on the deck and enjoy.


Here are some authors who's books I spied over the past year. I am hoping to read more from them this year. Just click on their names to learn more about them and their books. Since there are so many authors from the past year, I am simply sharing links. Starting with my next post, I will go into more detail about certain authors and their books.

Here be a few movies that I spied over the year worth mentioning.

God's Not Dead

              A very good movie. I highly recommend it.

Avengers Age of Voltron

Not as good as the first movie, but worth watching.


Not my favorite Cinderella movie, but a good wholesome version. 


Each week, I will post any news that I deem worth mentioning.
The biggest news of 2015: My hubby (aka the Butler) has had a tough year, with doctor visits, hospital stays and bladder cancer. That year is now gone and so is the cancer. Yes, he still battles other ailments, but God is still in control and we just take each day as it comes.


Each week I am going to introduce a blogger and give you a link to his/her blog. This week I am introducing MaryLu Tyndall's blog. 

She blogs three times a week...Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Her Monday posts are very inspirational and thought provoking. Her Wednesday Picture and verse will bless you. And her Friday posts are usually about promoting upcoming releases and various things. Stop by and be blessed. 
Here is the link to her blog The Cross and Cutlass

Ship's Galley:

This is where I post about any foods, drinks, establishments, etc that caught my eye during the week....that's worth sharing. For this blog post, I want to mention a pork roast combo pack that I purchased from Walmart. It contains a small roast, red potatoes, carrots and an onion. I love my crock pot and this meal fits perfectly inside it. The Butler and I have enjoyed this roast a couple times now and it is simply delicious. You have to love a "set it and forget it" dinner. The most I had to do was cut up the potatoes and onion. It even came with a seasoning pack. 
For future Galley posts, I will be on the lookout for recipes, tips or anything that is worth sharing. 

This is where I will post any giveaways that I will be having...or share about giveaways others are having. So, make sure and check each week to see what's going on.


Here is where I will announce winners of my giveaways. 

Well, Mateys, what say you? Do you like this new set-up? Can ye see yerself returning here once a week? Let yer voice be heard in the comment section. 

Have a blessed week!

    1. Thanks Rebecca. Make sure and come aboard each week, to see what's new.

  5. Love the new blog set-up, Debbie - thank you!!

    I'm interested in the pork roast combo as I find it less motivating to spend time cooking for just one person. Is the combo frozen or fresh, is there just the one meat - or a selection, and what is the brand?? With my luck, my local Wal-Mart stores don't carry it, lol!!

    Blessings, Debbie!!

    Shared post!!

    1. Bonnie, I don't recall the brand right now, but I will try to remember to tell you when I buy it again. It's sold fresh and they have pork combos and beef combos. Thanks for dropping by!
