Roses-Getting Ready

100_3572

My rose bush is full of these little buds.  I can’t wait to see them in bloom!  Of course, I will take a picture so you all can see them too.  Today we begin our new study today on I Corinthians.  Pray for us, as the ladies seem to think this will be a hard study.  To me, hard means digging deeper.  Hopefully, digging deeper means understanding deeper.  We’ll see.  Yesterday was a beautiful day here in Floyd.  Sunshine, not too warm, just right.  I washed clothes again and hung them out on the line to dry.  I thought I should take advantage of the sunshine.  They are calling for rain this evening through Monday.  Every year, our church does a youth Trout Fest day.  It is scheduled for tomorrow.  The pond is already stocked and ready to go.  It is a big day. The kids fish from 9:30 to 12:00.  Then we have a picnic lunch.  Hotdogs with all the fixin’s.  Lots of desserts.  The kids and the adults have a LOT of fun.  Hopefully, it will not get rained out.  We went over to a friend’s house last night.  I made homemade cinnamon rolls and took them to share.  Good coffee, good food, good fellowship.  Life is good and God is great!  I took Jessica’s advice and made the rolls a little different this time.  I put chopped pecans in the middle along with the brown sugar and cinnamon.  Then for the icing I made a quick caramel frosting from my Mennonite cookbook.  The recipe is:

1/2 cup butter and 1 cup brown sugar.  Melt together on low heat and boil 2 min. stirring constantly.  Add 1/4 cup milk and heat just until boiling again.  Remove from heat and cool slightly.  Stir in 2 cups sifted powdered sugar.

This was very good on the cinnamon rolls.  I know it would be excellent on cakes as well.  Time for my day to get busy.  Take care and God bless.

New School Books

100_3460 We received our new school books for next year.  This is always an exciting time for us.  We love looking at them to see what the next year will be about.  Of course, about half way through them they will not be near as exciting.  Oh well, enjoy the moment, right.  Temperatures have been rather chilly here.  30 degrees this morning with scattered frost.  Hopefully no damage done.  We spent the weekend at Jessica’s.  Saturday was her baby shower day.  She received many nice things but of course I forgot my camera, so no pictures.  Her mother-in-law got her a really nice bassinet.  She is going to use this upstairs in the bedroom for a while.  Then they will put up his crib.   We also celebrated Hubby’s birthday while we were there.  Hot dogs with all the fixin’s and birthday cake.  We had a great time.  As usual, though, it goes by too quick.  When we came home last night, it was pretty chilly in the house.  We hurried and built a fire.  We still have one going today but I think it is going to warm up nicely.  The sun is shining and it looks beautiful outside.  Hubby and I are going to get another load of wood while the girls stay here and work on school.  Dale-a friend from church- is bringing over his wood splitter this evening to let us borrow.  Thank you Dale and thank you Lord for provided us with such good friends.  We are truly blessed.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
