Life is a Special Occasion!
Happy Anniversary to DS#5 and his wife today!
May the dear Lord bless you both today and always !
An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Love one another and you will be happy. It's as simple and as difficult as that.
I’m sending out the best of wishes to this son and his wife today! Wishing them a very Happy Anniversary ! May your marriage be blessed with love ,joy and companionship for all years of your lives.
Today is also SCUD Day which stands for Savor the Comic, Unplug the Drama Day, and encourages those of us whose lives might have a touch too much drama to step back, relax, and enjoy the funnier side of life. Relaxation and humor are good for your physical and mental wellbeing, so turn the drama down a notch and enjoy a good laugh instead.
Taking a step back, relaxing and enjoying the funnier side of life is always a good thing. I try to do this every day of the year. It does make life more enjoyable.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday !
WHAT’S NEW IN THE KITCHEN
There is a food holiday to celebrate every day of the year!
Today is National Blueberry Day.
One of my very favorite ways to eat Blueberries is in Blueberry Muffins. So in honor of this day here’s a recipe for...
2 cups sugar
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups sour cream
2 cups blueberries
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Insert 24 to 30 paper muffin cups into muffin pans.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs.
Gradually add sugar while continuing to beat the eggs.Continue beating and slowly pour in the vegetable oil and vanilla extract.
In separate bowl, stir together flour, salt and baking soda.Stir dry ingredients into egg mixture alternately adding the sour cream. Gently fold in blueberries.
Pour batter into muffin cups. Bake in oven for 20 minutes. Test with a toothpick for doneness. Serve warm.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
4021. for DS#5 and his wife, it’s their anniversary
4022. for blueberries, good and good for you

Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
