Teacher appreciation dinner is this Friday.
I signed up for three things.
I was assigned something entirely different.
Don't they know I don't like trying new recipes under pressure.
In fact, they did not give me a recipe...the note said 'use your favorite truffle recipe'.
Do they know something I don't?
I thought I would just make Buckeyes.
They are truffle-y enough, right?
And just now I spotted this recipe on my pinterest page.
I had great success with the brisket I made from Smitten Kitchen's cookbook...
cross your fingers folks...
I'm going in.
Yesterday morning I saw the cutest lettering app on Instagram. I have looked at others and found them uneasy to use and not cute.
This one is easy to use and cute.
It is by #beautifulmess.
It cost .99¢
LOOK at what came in the mail yesterday!
Do you remember when I showed those pretty wash cloths a few weeks ago?
My friend, Kim, made this and sent it to me!
She was familiar with the crochet pattern and told me the most lovely story of making a blanket for her mom with this pattern. It touched my heart.
And the pink and white is the most beautiful.
I asked and she said she would teach me to crochet.
I can not wait!
Isn't it lovely?
Thank you Kim!!
Emma traveled all night to get to Omaha. I can not wait to hear her stories and see more pictures.
The robins are singing.
The fan is blowing.
“The robin flew from his swinging spray of ivy on to the top of the wall and he opened his beak and sang a loud, lovely trill, merely to show off. Nothing in the world is quite as adorably lovely as a robin when he shows off - and they are nearly always doing it.”
Listen and hear,
My sister Janet has asked me to ask you to pray for their friend Katie W.
Katie is a seventeen year old girl in Arizona who has been fighting a very aggressive cancer.
She has really fought bravely and for a long time...and now the cancer has come back and is in her spine and lungs. She is a girl of great faith and wants to keep fighting.
Will you pray for her and her family?
Lord in your mercy,
hear our prayer.
