Good Evening to you...
I thought that I would not post tonight.. I did not think you would be very interested in my day .
It was not a creative day really but I did get a few things accomplished that I have been wanting to do..
But I remembered you faithful readers who will read this even if it is boring and so here I am.. smile..
As you all know... I love books and they kinda cling to me.. grin..
I have been wanting to give our bedroom a good clean ..
Clearing out the closet and bookshelves are both on my list along with all the drawers in Terry's dresser and mine..
I can't seem to finish it all.. sigh..
I have either been running the roads or sick or whatever..
Today, though I did get quite a bit of it finished..
Not quite all but I am getting there.. smile..
I have several bags of books and such to give away..
Thank the Lord..
Then there was quite a bit of laundry ...
One would think when there are only two people that there would not be much but there still is...
We had an old comforter on our bed that we both love..
Don't ask me why but it is just so comfy..
And torn here and there...but just on one side.. grin..
I took a cozy flannel sheet and attached it to the torn side..
Sewed all the edges and presto!!
We can use it for a few more years..
I did not take pics because you all would think I was crazy.... grin.
Every time that I took a break I was on a mission..
Going through the Bible, books and notebooks..
Trying to get ready for Keepers meeting on Saturday..
Last week I really was ill and I was not happy with all that I had ready...
Just praying that the Lord will give me something that will encourage and inspire the dear girls who attend..
Then I made another soup..
Out of the leftover chicken, of course..
I could eat soup every day... eh, Janet? grin..
Anyway... I wondered if you ever do this with your leftover herbs..
Use them all except the stems... Tie them up with some string and throw them into your broth that you are making..
They give such a wonderful flavor..
Just a tip for you soup junkies.. grin..
And then I need to confess... smile..
I have been wanting a lovely cup of tea and a sweet..
We hardly have any because my sweet husband is diabetic..
But while the cat is away this mouse is making ...
I know I should not have them but a treat once in awhile...
I really am a healthy eater..
Ask our daughter.. She is a nurse..
She says I am the healthiest eating big person she ever met..
It must be the pasta..
Anyway... loveys.... here is the recipe..
just in case you have one of those kind of days... grin..
1 1/3cups raisins.
3/4 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup boiling water
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
Place in a small pot and boil for 5 minutes..

1 cup sugar or splenda
1 tsp. b. powder
1 cup margarine
Crumb together and place half of the mixture in a greased 9 inch pan..
Spread raisin mixture over the bottom crust and add the rest to the top and pat down..

Thank you dear ladies for dropping by.. And a big welcome to all of the new followers.. So glad to have you visiting..
I love your comments and even though I don't always get back to you, I do read each and every one..
Thanks for your support and for making me grin..
You are all a bunch of sweeties... grin..
I need to get to bed now..
I was reading some letters today and realized that they were written in prison...
Paul the Apostle...
I love his writings.. They are so full of direction and encouragement..
