Happy St. Patty's Day!

Gotta LOVE Maxine!
(She makes me smile!)

Just checking in to see how everyone's day is going!  We are having wonderful weather.  It is like the air is super charged!  We had some thunder and lightning last night, but no real rain.  I think the super charged air is the result of the lightning that passed through.  It feels awesome!

The book I have been wanting to order (but had to wait for the "extra" funds) came yesterday.  I could not put it down last night!  I have been wanting to read this ever since Linda (Prairie Flower Farm) first mentioned it.

I want to tell you, if you have a heart for God, for children, for foreign places

....any of the above....
This book is LIFE changing!

It is the story of Katie Davis, being called to the mission field right out of high school, which was not what her parents (or herself) had planned for her future.  It is a tremendous book!

Christian Book Online has it on sale.  I am going to be ordering more copies for gifts and I already promised two sweet friends they could "borrow" it to read after I'm finished.  Now, I'm thinking of buying an extra copy just to loan to those who are interested.

(So, if you are, get yer name on the list!  Just let me know in the comment section.)

Love this!

Besides the weather being fantastic today, sticking with the eating plan has been good!  I like "good" days, when it's "easy".  I think I'll wait and weigh on March 31st.  I was going to say, "April 1st" but then everyone would think ~ April Fool!  So, I'll do it a day early.

I can't believe I have so much to accomplish in the next few months, but I am getting really excited!

I worked some on the sidebar late yesterday (even with all the grands (all eleven) here).  Now, I want to make some "pages" to keep some topics separated.  I think I will like that better and it will make it easier for readers to find *stuff*.

Okay, I'm going to get off and make my sugar scrub.  I've been out a few days and that is not in keeping with the plan.  I'll post the recipe tomorrow or Monday.  It is so easy and works so well!

May your day be blessed!

  1. Just waiting for Randy to tell me supper is ready! Yepper, he's making some fish and fries. I've made the salad. Yum yum.

    Been a little Canadian beaver today myself. Loving it! Can't wait to read about that scrub and all the other stuff you will be sharing bit by bit as the Lord leads you too..and it will be always at the right time...That's how He is..we get all things accomplished in His time..Hallelujah. Loving the side bar girl. You did a great job.

  2. Good morning, Cheryl! Even though we connect on FB it's nice to see you posting on your blog. I've missed reading your posts. They always make me smile. :) See? LOL Eleven grandkids underfoot? I am AMAZED you had time to even think about the blog, let alone work on it.

    St. Patrick's Day was quiet for me. Tim worked and I had an all-day headache I just couldn't shake (in fact, a shadow of it is still hanging around today). I gave a nod to my Irish roots and made corned beef and cabbage in the slow cooker for the fellowship dinner at church....and spilled about 1/3 of it in the trunk of the car. Grrrr! Guess what I'll be doing today? LOL

    Enjoy this beautiful Lord's day!

  3. Hello sweet friend,
