ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FOR TUESDAY, JUNE 9TH, 2020
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.
12 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER
Sunrise: 5:55 am
Sunset: 9:00 pm
Life is a special occasion!!
Today is Donald Duck Day which is the official birthday of Donald Duck , the funny animal cartoon character of Walt Disney that first appeared in 1934 in the cartoon The Wise Little Hen, which was part of the Silly Symphonies series of theatrical cartoon shorts. The films release date of June 9th is officially recognized by the Walt Disney Company as Donald’s birthday.
Donald is one of the most popular Disney characters. He is a white duck with a yellow orange bill, legs and feet. He typically wears a sailor suit with a cap and a black or red bow tie. Donald is most famous for his semi intelligible speech and has a micheivious and irritable personality. He has a short temper and a positive outlook on life. Many Donald shorts start with Donald in a happy mood, without a care in the world until something comes along and spoils his day.One of Donalds famous sayings is, Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!
We can celebrate today by watching Donald in a classic cartoon or movie.
If you can’t see the bright side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
Thanks to my grandchildren, I’m a fan of Donald Duck and his buddy Mickey Mouse and have watched quite a few of their cartoons and movies. They always make me laugh and sometimes even impart some needed wisdom. I’ve no pictures of Donald Duck to share today but I do have some of the neighborhood ducks that come to visit now and then. They make me laugh too.
We had our first 90 degree day of the summer yesterday and today will be close to 90 and have more humidity they say so once again I’ll be staying in and keeping cool. I found another recipe for a salad which is about all I feel like eating when it gets hot like this so I thought I’d share it with you today.
8 oz. cool whip, thawed
1/2 c sour cream
1 15 oz can mandarin orange, drained
1 c. chopped fresh pineapple
3/4 c. maraschino cherries with stems, sliced in half
3 c. mini marshmallows
1 c. shredded coconut
3/4 c. pecans, chopped
In a large bowl add cool whip and sour cream and stir util combined. Add in the mandarin oranges, pineapple, cherries marshmallows, coconut and pecans . Stir until combined and chill for at least 1 hour or overnight .
This makes a wonderful side dish and is really nice to take to a summer potluck supper. Cool and refreshing.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
