ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
MAY 5TH, 2010
OVER THE HUMP DAY!
Today is supposed to bring 80 degree temps and some more rain.
We seem to be having a day of sunshine and then more rain. The grass is growing like crazy and I know that here at
DS#6's he is having a tough time finding a day with out rain so he can mow it.
The joy of not working is that I can do things when the opportunity arrives and don't have to wait anymore till the sun shines. I'm also very flexible. My plans have changed for the week as our Little Lucky guy's doctor appointment was cancelled so DDIL#6 won't be staying home from work and that means I'll be here thru Friday from the looks of things. Then I'll go home till Sunday evening when I'll return here for another week of babysitting.
Plans can change from day to day as we all know. I don't mind t
his change as it only means that I'll have a few more SMILES to enjoy
Even if you have nothing else to give, you can give en
Remember, the ultimate source of encouragement

NEW IN THE KITCHEN
Breakfast for Dinner Day
I found this recipe on line and thought I'd share it just for
Elvis Presley’s Hot Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich
Reportedly one of the King’s favorite foods, this indulgent treat has a crisp, toasty exterior and a warm-smooth filling. Rumor has it he sometimes added bacon, but we’ll leave that decision to you
2 tablespoons peanut butter (preferably smooth)
2 slices white sandwich bread
1 small ripe banana, mashed with a fork (about 1/4 cup)
2 tablespoons butter
Spread peanut butter evenly on 1 slice of bread, then spread mashed banana on other slice, leaving a 1/4-inch border around edge. Close sandwich, gent
ly pressing bread slices together
Heat butter in an 8- to 10-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat until foam subsides, then fry sandwich, turning over once, until golden brown, about 2 minutes total.
Eat immediately with a knife and fork.
Father, help me to say only the good things people need to hear, things that will really help them
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 bless our Police Officers, Firefighters
and Paramedics and EMT's
GOD BLESS YOU !
These days at home with our little Lucky guy just speed by. We start the day off with a diaper change and a bottle. He sometimes naps awhile and sometimes he stays awake and talks with me and of course shares plenty of smiles.
While he has a nap I get dressed and have breakfast and send off my morning newsletter. You'll notice it goes out much later than usual now as he has priority ov
er any thing else.
I usually try to do up the dishes and bottles. They have to be ready for the next go round. Then before I know it he is awake and we do the diapering and feeding all over again. Oh and I almost forgot the bath. He loves getting a bath which is a good thing for sure. The time just flies by.
I have been trying to at least start dinner for them before they get home and they leave me instructions for what ever is on the menu. Every thing they fix is a little different in the way I make it so I try and do it their way. We've had turkey chili, turkey sloppy Joe and turkey Kielbassa
You're never too old to learn new tricks!
We got to go on a nice long walk Tuesday evening. I pushed the baby stroller and I think that it helped me as, even though I'm badly out of shape, the walk didn't do me in.
I'm hoping to enjoy more walks now that nice weather is here. I sure do need the exercise.
COUNTING THE DAYS
When your life flashes before your eyes, make sure you've got plenty to watch.
46 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER
Keep looking ON THE BRIGHT SIDE of things.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone near…
