{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

{It's a Fairy Kinda Day}

As most of my friends know, my children and grandchildren have Sunday dinner with me after church each week. Now of course there are those Sundays that for one reason or another we don't, but for the most part we do. I have had friends ask me, "What do you all do after dinner? Take naps? NOPE! Heaven's No! They can sleep when they go home!  My kitchen sign I made last year tells it all. But, when the weather is good we most often  go outside, pull out the lawn chairs and have fun. The kids fish, plays ball, rides the 4-wheeler, picks flowers or weeds, LOL, and well, we entertain ourselves. My thing has always been that it did not matter to me if we ate a hot dog, let's just do it together. We are truly blessed. I decided after Sunday dinner we would create our very own little Fairy garden.   My oldest two grandchildren took a little vacation to Universal studios so wasn't here but my other grands has a good time creating their first fairy g

{The Billy Graham Library} Final Chapter of Birthday Trip

The Cross is actually a door that you walk through to get inside the building.  As I share the last of my birthday trip pictures with you today I can't help but to be reminded that it's not just those milestone birthdays that are important. It's every day of life that the Lord gives to us.  Today I would like to share the Billy Graham Library. They should have named it the Billy Graham Museum. So much to look at, read and think about. The Billy Graham Library is located in Charlotte, NC so on our home from Ashville NC this was our last stop. So thankful we went to visit. The Library was designed to reflect Billy Graham’s journey from a humble farm boy to an international ambassador of God’s love, the barn-shaped building is situated on 20 landscaped acres, only miles from where Billy Graham grew up in Charlotte, N.C. The roped off area that you see in the living room area was where Billy Graham's casket sat. Thousands and thousands came through the home to

{Birthday Trip-Chapter 2}

In Chapter 2 of my birthday trip I would like to share a few more pictures with you and I will begin with our Walking Food Tour in Downtown Ashville, NC.  If you want to take a peek at Chapter 1 here's the link. I shared the Biltmore House, Lake Lure and Chimney Rock, the Cabin that we stayed in and more. First of all let me say that I have never been on a Food tour or as some call it, a Foodie Tour . I have family and friends that have and some has said... Yay, love food tours...and some has said Nay, not for me. But, I am a fan of Food Network and that is where I first learned of food tours so decided that a Food Tour was in store and why not in downtown Ashville.  First, let me say that we had a wonderful food tour guide. She was young, energetic, spunky and a cute little thing at that. She shared a wealth of history with us about Ashville as well as history
