{A Whole Lot of Baking, Cooking and Loaded Tea Making Going On}

  Happy Sunday Afternoon friends. Hope you've all had a great week. I've been doing some cooking, baking and tea making.  I've really been enjoying making and creating loaded teas, shakes, smoothies and coffee drinks. I have not been writing down my recipes but guess I need to start doing that so I can remember what all I done! LOL!  I try to stick with healthy and low calorie drinks and have so many different things that I want to try.   But, this is an easy way to get extra vitamins, or Collagen, or protein.  I drink lots of water and this helps to give me something to add a little extra taste.   Mercy, I'm having too much fun with these teas. Decided to do a little baking this weekend too for my family. Pumpkin muffins with brown sugar topping was on my list for sure. I had enough batter left for miniature pumpkin chocolate chip muffins so baked a batch of those. If that wasn't enough already, I baked up some peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips. Needless t

THANKFUL THURSDAY

Once again we have so much to be thankful for. With each reading of the book "One Thousand Gifts" I am finding myself so short on the simple things in life that I need to be thankful for. God is using this book to show me the MANY, MANY things I have to be so thankful for. Though I am "ALWAYS" thankful for my family I must say that these four little grands give me all the more reason to be thankful for LIFE!   I am thankful for being able to watch family gather together on Easter Sunday and the little ones and the grown ones hunt for eggs....oh do we take these little times for granite. Thankful to watch the children play. THANKFUL To see the face of my oldest granddaughter as she opens her birthday gift only to find that she has her very on sewing machine! Thankful to be able to have a little Princess party for all these little girls and listen to their giggles and see the smiles on their faces. Thankful that God gave has giv

WEDNESDAY IN THE WORD

Our Lord knows everything about us. He knows our goings and our comings. He knows our hearts. He knows our needs and He loves us so much. Read these words and when you do...read them slow and soak it in.  O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up. You understand my thoughts afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down. And are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold O Lord, You know it altogether. You have hedged me behind and before. And laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me. It is high, I cannot attain it. Psalm 139:1-6 (NKJV) Hugs and blessings, Cindy
