ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
MARCH 9TH, 2010
Our snow is beginning to melt!
I’m glad I had a chance to do some birthday celebrating over the weekend as Monday, my actual birthday, was pretty blah. It was work as usual for sure. The boss did interview one person yesterday and will do another today. He really liked the one on Monday so we’ll see what happens with that.
One bright spot in the day was a telephone call at work from our Princess and Prince Charming and their mom to wish me a Happy Birthday! That was a surprise as it was early morning yet and they hadn’t even left for school.
Another bright spot was that the sun was shining all day long! And DS#6 phoned to say happy birthday in the evening, then my neighbor came over too. So the day certainly wasn’t a wash out at all. She brought more books for me to read too. I’ll have a nice collection to read and to share at the campground this summer. She said she didn’t want them back just to pass them on when I’m finished.
Thank you All!
Here's wishing you the top o' life without a single tumble.
Here's wishing you the smiles o' life and not a single grumble.
Here's wishing you the best o' life and not a claw about it.
Here's wishing you the joy in life and not a day without it
Today: Fast from fear
NEW IN THE KITCHEN
Tuesdays are Pasta day here at my house…
When I fix pasta I just know that I’ll be eating it for awhile so I try to cut the recipes in half for me. This one is the full recipe
Crock Pot Beef and Noodles
1 1/2 pounds stew beef
1 can French onion soup
1 can diced tomatoes (15 oz)
1 can golden mushroom soup. undiluted
1/2 cup sliced celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 to 6 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms
hot cooked noodles, buttered
Combine all and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours. Serve beef over hot, buttered noodles.
O God, help us to be grateful for opportunities to forgive
and give us the strength to do so
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.
It's what you learn after you know it all that counts
At least all the snow has melted off the porch. There is still a lot to go but I’d say a good foot or so is gone now. The rest of the week is supposed to be warmer with temps getting up in the 50’s they say but most of the days from Wednesday on will have some rain in them. That is better than freezing cold and snow.
After seeing many of my children over the weekend, it sure seems extra quiet at my house. I do get used to the silence around here, but when Easter comes I’ll be ready for another family get together for sure.
COUNTING THE DAYS
Good for the body is the work of the body, and good for the soul is the work of the soul, and good for either is the work of the other
Henry David Thoreau
11 DAYS UNTIL SPRING !

Keep looking ON THE BRIGHT SIDE of things.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone near…
