ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
NOBEMBER 24TH, 2009
One of my favorite places around my house is the porch swing. More and more though it seems I sit in the back and rock in my rocker on the patio. Now that we have shorter and colder days I miss the time outdoors relaxing in the evenings.
Not much going on here at the present. I still have lots to do getting ready for Christmas now and with the long weekend coming up I should get a lot done. Evenings after work go by way to fast and rarely do I get anything done then.
November is the month when we remember all the things we are thankful for and the One that makes them possible
God the Blessed and Only Ruler, King of kings and Lord of lords
All honor and praise be to you, my God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords . . .
1 Timothy 6:15

Combine 1/2 pound butter, 2-1/2 cups sugar, and 3 eggs and be
at until the mixture is smooth. Sift together 5-1/2 cups flour and 1-1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar. Add a small portion of these sifted dry ingredients to the butter mixture, making a smooth batter; add 2 tablespoons milk in which is dissolved 1-1/2 teaspoons soda; then add the remainder of the flour, making a soft dough.
Roll the dough thin, cut in fancy shapes, sprinkle with red sugar, and bake about 7 minutes at 450°F.
If some other shortening is used instead of butter, add 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon salt to the dough
ATTIRE FOR TODAY
It’s supposed to be in the 50’s and cloudy again today. I surely am feeling the effects of no sunshine and dark evenings big time.
May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Lord, hold our troops in
your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the
selfless acts they perform for us
in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
DS#6 has talked with his wife’s uncle and I guess he is going to check out the ceiling light in my dining room. It’s not working right so hopefully he can fix it for me. At first it would just blink on and off again, now it more off than on. (He
DID come by and look at it and thinks it is the switch)
DS#4 called Sunday evening and I finally did get to talk to my Sunshine Boys. All is well at their house and DS#4 has the whole week off from work . After all his traveling for work lately he says he really does need the rest.

COUNTING THE DAYS
It seem like just yesterday we had Christmas in July at the Campground…where else would you expect to see a golf cart made into a sleigh for Santa!
27 DAYS UNTIL WINTER !
31 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
143 DAYS UNTIL CAMPING SEASON BEGINS
Keep looking ON THE BRIGHT SIDE of things.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone near…
