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.
