Hello everyone! I’m back to blogging. I am very happy. Dave taught me how to make posts and put pictures on from my phone.
I took this picture at the top of the hill above our house. We have been enjoying cooler temperatures here and I love it. It makes for really nice sleeping.
Well that’s all for my first post. I hope you all have a great night and God bless.
Look how pretty our rhubarb is! Soon we will be having rhubarb dumplings. Maybe next week, Jess?
This is our early spring bed. Everything is coming along nicely. Soon we will be enjoying fresh greens. I love it!
Pictures of chalk art from church yesterday.
Enjoy your day and God bless.
1/2 cup cold strong coffee, 3 Tablespoons sugar, 1 cup milk, 2 cups ice, 3 Tablespoons caramel sundae syrup or caramel coffee syrup. In a blender, blend until ice is crushed and smooth. Top with whip cream and a drizzle of caramel sundae syrup. Maked 2 large drinks. *I used heavy whipping cream instead of milk and honey in place of the sugar.*
I got this recipe from a comment on this blog left by a lady named Brenda Putman http://www.littlehouseliving.com/cheap-starbucks-ice-cream-and.html
Our first colts foot that we have spotted for the year. Isn’t it beautiful? These cheerful little blooms will soon be everywhere.
Today has been absolutely wonderful. The temperature was low 60’s, tons of sunshine. We enjoyed a cookout at Jessica’s. Our first one at their new home. We had chicken on the grill, corn on the cob, macaroni salad and homemade bread. Fun times!!
I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
I will be posting a lot of these beach pictures. As I am sure you all can guess, I have quite a few of them. In this picture, Grace is working on taking a picture of a bug. I just can’t tell you all how much we really enjoyed that trip. We are SO looking forward to going back soon.
Hubby is starting a new round of chemo, a totally different type for us. He is seriously broken out with a rash which we thought was not good. Yesterday at the doctor’s office though she practically did a happy dance when she saw him. She said the more severe the rash, the better the medicine is working. Who knew! I think Hubby wishes it would really work without the having the rash but it is what it is.
Tomorrow is church day and I hope you all have blessed Sunday.
The girls and I took a vacation trip last October. Dave, Jess and kids went too. It was an AWESOME time!! Hubby stayed home as he thought it might be too much for him. We stayed a week at Jekyll Island GA. Here are two of my favorite pictures. If you look closely, you can see Daniel in the water behind Julie. David and Jess pulled their camper down and left it in a little town close to Jekyll. The camper is just too big to pull back and forth and besides it is much easier to go for a visit if the camper is already down there.
That’s all for today. I hope to share more beach pictures tomorrow. Enjoy your day and God bless.
It has been a really long time since I have made a post. I am trying to learn how to transfer pictures from my phone to this blog as most pictures I take now are with my phone (thanks to Jess). Anyway, this is just a short post to hopefully get me back in the habit of blogging. This is a picture of our amaryllis. The bulb was given to us as a Christmas gift. I have never had one before but I most definitely love them. Anyone familar with them? Not sure what I do with it after the bloom is gone. I guess I’ll have to research it.
We have had our first major snow of 2016. I think we had probably 15 in. with drifts much deeper. Anyway, we have enjoyed 4 days of being snuggled in. My last day out was Thursday. George had a chemo treatment on that day. Well, I hope everyone has a great day and God bless.
