ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
DECEMBER 9th, 2009
OVER THE HUMP DAY
A HIGH WIND WARNING IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1:00AM EST THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10
This is what the weather man has to say about today….
A Strong Cold Front Will Move Across The Area On Wednesday. West
To Southwest Winds Of 25 To 40 Mph With Some Gusts To 60 Mph Can
Be Expected Behind This Front. The Strongest Winds Will Likely
Occur Wednesday Afternoon And Evening
This evening is supposed to be our Dulcimer night. The last of the season and I do hope the weather doesn’t get bad.
DSIL with our Prince Charming
Advent is the time of hope, a time to renew the light of Christ in our lives.
As He came to bring us the light of eternal life, we hope to share our light with others.
This week, make a conscious effort to recognize the good things people do - however small their actions - and create opportunities to thank them for their goodness
NEW IN THE KITCHEN
Christmas Pretzel Treats
Salty pretzels combine with sweet chocolate for these fun treats that make a yummy gift few can resist.
Bite-size, waffle-shaped pretzels
Hershey's Kiss or Hershey's Hug
Heat the oven to 170F. Set a number of bite-size, waffle-shaped pretzels (one for each treat) in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, then top each pretzel with an unwrapped Hershey's Kiss or Hershey's Hug
Bake for 4 to 6 minutes (the white chocolate will melt more quickly), until the chocolates feel soft when touched with a wooden spoon. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and quickly press an M&M's candy into the center of each Kiss
Allow the treats to cool for a few minutes, then place them in the refrigerator to set, about 10 minutes. Place handfuls of the candies in clear plastic bags and tie on colorful ribbons
ATTIRE FOR TODAY
Even though it will be warmer today than it has been, up to 45 they say, it will be windy so it will still feel pretty chilly out. Tonight the deep freeze will turn on and well go down to 22 and tomorrow night they say it may be 13 degrees for a low.
Loving and powerful God, grant us the gift of hope, patience and waiting in these Advent days so that the focus of our waiting will be on you.
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!
I took some time out last evening to check my Christmas list to see just how much I have to do and when I can do it . As far as I can tell I should be able to get it all done just in the Nick of time.

Snow no matter how white and pristine it looks is loaded with pollutants – no more snow ice cream.

A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone near…
