ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
MARCH 3RD, 2010
OVER THE HUMP DAY!
Right now they are saying it’s going to be blustery with a north wind coming at us so it’ll be colder today. It is Winds-day you know. I wanted sunshine, but that doesn’t count at all.
It just isn’t possible to get rid of any of those layers I wear quite yet.
Lent is a time for forgiveness and reconciliation
Today: Forgive someone who has wronged you
Come now, let us set things right, says the Lord
NEW IN THE KITCHEN
Found this dessert in one of the catalogs I get in the mail
1/2 Cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
1 Cup regular (not quick cook or instant) oatmeal
1 1/2 Cups boiling water

1 Cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
11/2 Cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 Cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, melted
11/2 Cups shredded coconut
1 Cup chopped pecans
1 Cup brown sugar
3 TB. milk
Preheat oven to 350°. Put the butter and oatmeal in a roomy mixing bowl. Add the boiling water and let stand for 20 minutes. Beat in the sugars, eggs and VANILLA. Mix in the remaining ingredients. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350° for 35 minutes. Then spread with frosting (below) and bake an additional 10-15 minutes until the frosting is brown and bubbling. Let cool for at least 30 minutes, then serve warm or cold.
Frosting: Mix all of the ingredients together well, and then carefully and quickly spread it over the hot cake. Continue baking as instructed above.
Prep. time: 30 minutes (20 minutes oatmeal resting in water time)
Baking time: 45-50 minutes
Father, teach us to be loving not only in great and exceptional moments, but above all in the ordinary events of daily 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!
Work is getting busier as more and more new jobs beginning to come in for Spring. That is ok with me as the days go by a little faster.
Evenings here at home remain about the same – quiet and busy too. I do try to get a little bit of something done every evening. I never did make it to the library last weekend so maybe I’ll stop on my way home from work today. I’ve got a few to return and want to see what’s new too.
I had a call from DS#6 yesterday evening and they are home! Everyone is doing just fine. He says if we are bringing a cake to make marble cake with chocolate frosting for Saturday…hint to DS#5.
COUNTING THE DAYS
Never iron a four-leaf clover, because you don't want to press your luck
17 DAYS UNTIL SPRING !
44 DAYS UNTIL CAMPING SEASON BEGINS
29 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…
