ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
SATURDAY, JANUARY 14TH, 2017
65 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Organize Your Home Day, which is the perfect chance to quit making excuses for one day, get down to business and get your home back into shape! Put everything else aside for a few hours and get to task on all those little niggling things and DIY jobs that have been begging to be finished for months now.
Being organized can balance your life. It can reduce stress and makes you more productive. It can stop you looking for things, of having to buy new things that you don't need. If you make it your way of life today, it can soon become a habit and you will reap the benefits for years to come.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
For every minute spent organizing an hour is earned.
This is one holiday I can truly celebrate. Organizing things in my home has been an ongoing task for a while now. Once you clear away the clutter of things you don’t need it’s a whole lot easier to get organized.
A place for everything and everything in it's place is the mark of an organized home
This weekend we’re to hover right around the freezing point, but next week is to be warmer once again. Temps in the 40’s and even 50’s are coming are way! Very strange weather for January for sure! I’m not complaining at all. No snow to shovel or ice to slip on is a wonderful thing!
This morning I’m off to get a hair cut, thanks to a gift card I got for Christmas. I’m thinking something new! We’ll see...
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!
WHAT’S NEW IN THE KITCHEN
There is a food holiday to celebrate every day of the year!
A traditional New York pastrami is made from the navel end of the brisket. It is cured in brine, coated with a mix of spices such as garlic, coriander, black pepper, paprika, cloves,
allspice, and mustard seed, and then smoked.
Pastrami is typically sliced and served hot on rye bread, a classic New York deli sandwich, pastrami on rye, sometimes accompanied by coleslaw and Russian dressing. Pastrami and coleslaw are also combined in a Rachel sandwich, a variation of the popular Reuben sandwich that traditionally uses corned beef and sauerkraut.
Some people like to use sub buns and some like to use sour dough bread for their pastrami sandwiches. There are many different varieties. Here is recipe I found that sounds pretty good.

First, spread Thousand Island dressing onto bread. Add Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and pastrami. Butter the outside of sandwich and grill until golden brown. Delicious!!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
It is easier to be happy when you are not surrounded by the confusion and the clutter of life.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
4570. for organization, it does reduce stress
4571. for a warmer week ahead, no snow
4572. for a grilled hot sandwich which makes a meal for me
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
