ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
TUESDAY, MAY 19TH, 2015
33 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER
Sunrise: 6:07 am
Sunset: 8:45 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
May 19th is May Ray Day, a day to appreciate the warming weather provided courtesy of our sun’s rays. Summer is just around the corner and it won’t be long before we turn the air conditioning on full blast. Many people find this beautiful time of year between Winter’s last frost and the dog days of Summer the most appealing time for outdoor activities and enjoyment.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
A cloudy day or a little sunshine have as great an influence on many constitutions as the most recent blessings or misfortunes.
I am one of the many people who adore Spring weather. The beauty and mildness of Spring always renews my spirits. Our weather has been up and down for a while now. One day you need heat and the next you need air. But thankfully there have also been some perfect days with the sun shinning and the windows open to let the fresh air in too.
Today is also Devil’s Food Cake Day and I’ve found a new recipe to try out. It’s for Devil’s Food Cake Cookies.
1 box Devil's Food Cake mix
½ cup vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 375*F. Mix all ingredients together, roll into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until edges of cookie are a little harder and the center is still a little mushy.
Remove from oven and let cool for 2 minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack. Sprinkle with a little confectioners sugar.
Makes approximately 2 dozen cookies
They say that today we’ll be in the 60’s with mostly sunny skies, it may be a great day to get out and pull a few weeds from the flower beds. They have enjoyed the rain and are multiplying quickly. The pictures today are of some sunsets here over the past year. Sunsets always remind me to be thankful for each day.
Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday !
