For Friday, March 26th, 2010
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
MARCH 26TH, 2010
It's FINALLY FRIDAY!
SNOW returned to northern Ohio Thursday evening. Very cold temps blew in and with the wind chill we sailed right down below freezing once more. Good old March is living up to its reputation after all.
Thankfully the end of this work week has come. It’s has been really tough work trying to teach my replacement all the things I do. She has been overwhelmed and stressed to say the least. I sure do pray it all works out for them. On the surface it seems an easy job but it is detail oriented and encompasses so many things.
It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving

NEW IN THE KITCHEN
Friday’s are Pizza Day at my house
When my children were growing up they loved Taco Pizza. The school cafeteria offered it regularly on the lunch menu too.
Today’s recipe is one I found on line
1 pkg. pizza crust
1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
1 1/2 c. water
2 tbsp. butter 2 sm. tomatoes
2 to 4 c. grated cheddar cheese (according to taste)
2 to 3 c. shredded lettuce
In large bowl, mix the pizza crust according to directions on package which usually calls for 1/2 cup water. Melt the butter and pour on top of dough before setting it aside to raise.
While dough is rising, brown ground beef and add taco seasoning mix according to directions on package, usually one cup of water. Stir beef while simmering to prevent sticking. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Grease pan, chop tomatoes and grate cheese.
Mix butter into dough and spread dough in pan. Add beef and place in oven for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, chop lettuce, take pan from oven and add tomatoes and cheddar cheese. Put pizza back in oven for 3 minutes then remove. Add lettuce on plate, so leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated. Add sour cream and taco sauce
Loving God, help us to remember that you are always beside us as we try to walk the path of Jesus
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.
And God bless our Police Officers, Firefighters
and Paramedics and EMT's!!!
I’ve not done much at all this week except to go to work. I’ve been much too exhausted after work each day to even consider doing much in the evening. Tonight I’m going to the visitation for my BIL’s father that passed away.
Saturday morning I take the Silver Streak in for her regularly scheduled maintenance and check up. I have to keep her running yet for awhile.
Other than church on Sunday it should be pretty much an at home weekend. That is a very good thing as there is much to do here.
COUNTING THE DAYS
Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week
87 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER !
21 DAYS UNTIL CAMPING SEASON BEGINS
10 WORKING DAYS UNTIL MA RETIRES
Keep looking ON THE BRIGHT SIDE of things.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone near…
