For Saturday, January 20th, 2018
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
The moments of our lives may be bright with possibility, dark with fear or sadness, or even plain everyday gray, but God's glory never fades. May God's glory shine into the exciting lights, upsetting darks, and boring grays of your every day.

Today is also Penguin Awareness Day which was created to celebrate everybody’s favourite zoo animal! Find out more about penguins, explore what others have to say about penguins, why not visit your local zoo to share the penguin love! You don’t have to wait until Penguin Awareness Day, because penguins can be loved all year long!
It's a time to wear black and white, penguin colors. However, wearing a
tuxedo in their honor is optional. It is also popular today to tell a penguin joke or two.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side

THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving, make every day a holiday and celebrate just living!
The very first picture today is of our Princes when she turned one and DS#6 turned 21. Birthday cards were sent in the mail to wish them both very happy birthdays. Both live in Ohio, but not close by so I sadly don’t expect to see either of them today.
They were born on the same day 20 years apart. DS#6 was a very proud uncle and still is. I also found the picture above of DS#6’s birthday last year. And below you’ll see some of our Princess too.
We’ve got another warmer and partly sunny day today. A good day for celebrating. The snow and ice continue to melt here. Tomorrow we may have some rain.
Whatever the weather we’ll make our own sunshine!
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!
It’s National Cheese Lover’s Day which celebrates a very popular food across the world. There are more than 900 cheese types classified by taste and texture. The average American consumes about 31 pounds of cheese each year.
In honor of the day I found this cheesy recipe to share.
Easy Bake Cheddar Biscuits
1 c. flour
2 tsp. Baking powder
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. cold butter, cut up
1 c. shredded Cheddar cheese
1/3 c. milk
1/2 c. chive and onion cream cheese spread, optional
Heat oven to 450 degrees
Mix first 5 ingredients in medium bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cheddar. Add milk. Stir until mixture forms soft dough.
Place on lightly floured surface and Knead 8 to 1o times or until smooth. Pat out dough into a 6 inch square. Cute into 9 squares and place 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm with cream cheese spread or butter.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Celebrate what you want to see more of.
Thomas J. Peters
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
