Phamily matters to tend to. Running more and more behind. But I am going to incorporate my heritage posts with my grateful for....posts. Last night I did not sleep well and got up once or twice throughout the night. Had Jenny on my mind. Praying about her needs and her chronic pain. I was thinking my troubles are few compared to what she has to deal with day in and day out. Breaks my heart. I can be a little cynical at times, and when I came across this verse while studying my bible today I felt it was perfectly related to Jenny and all she is dealing with as well as some phamily members dealing with some heart breaking news too. Then I thought, my goodness, the government sells stars! You can give a loved one a star for their birthday or other special occasion. Isn't it funny, those stars belong to the creator of the universe, they certainly do not belong to any government agency.
I have been praying for Louisana and all the devastating floods they have had. It is funny how some areas of the country are dry and other places are swimming in rain waters. In Colorado we have had a long hot summer but they recently passed a law where you can save rain water in rain barrels to water your garden etc. Again I ask how did the government get control of nature? Why would it be illegal to gather rain water to use for gardening and washing your car etc. ? People are so complacent and do not pay attention to things that matter. Rather they trust the main stream media to tell them what is going on in our world.
I surround myself by the word of God. I am fearful of what is happening in our world. I don't think it will be any better but rather worse. I will always trust the Lord, my mother taught me well, pray hard and pray harder too. She lived by it.
Now for some absolute cuteness:
Harrison James hanging out on Thursday 8/11/16. He is one busy fellow, trying to pull himself up around furniture. He is going to spend a little time with me tomorrow. I will also get to see him Thursday because his daddy is going to pick Uncle Nick up at the airport and I will keep this busy fellow until they get home and we all go to lunch together.
Somewhere in my garage I have this cookbook. I was frustrated because the summer is fading away quickly and I want to find this copy I have had since 1972. I recently ordered an updated copy from an antique vendor. Their pricing was excellent because the cost was ten dollars more than I paid 44 years ago! I am waiting anxiously to receive it.
These sLOVEnian cookbooks are loaded with my heritage and traditional meals that my mom prepared for us. I wish I had paid better attention to her while we she cooking up a storm! I will share a few recipes when my newest cookbook arrives. I have always loved cookbooks. Another favorite is Betty Crocker
I cooked from this book when our children were small. Somewhere in my storage of books I have a Popcorn Cookbook. Laugh Out Loud. I was an avid collector when I was younger. Living in the high altitude these days I also still cook from the Denver Junior League :
This one is specifically filled with recipes to create in the high altitude. I have to thank my childhood friend Karen for sharing this book with me over 32 years ago. It is a charming cookbook and there are tons of amazing recipes. I hope you will come back and join me when I post a few recipes in the coming weeks. Now for some beauty sleep before I see Harrison tomorrow.
