It has been warm enough for the past several days, that I can sit on the porch and read. Love it!!!
This week has been so long and I am actually glad it is finally the weekend. Even though I am retired, during the week, I feel guilty being lazy and just sitting around. Silly huh? I guess having worked for 56 years, the habit is hard to break.
My son came running over yesterday and said, "Mom you have to come over and see what we found in our flower bed", so out the door I went. This is what they found...........
Jesse was sitting on the porch with his legs hanging over and suddenly the turtle raised up from the leaves and snapped at him. He was scared to death. We have no earthly idea how it got there. We do have a creek behind our houses, but it is, I would say, over a city block away. If this old fellow walked that far, he may have to rest two days to get back. I thought he looked old and of course I felt sorry for him. It is supposed to rain for the next couple of days, so we are hoping he can make it back to the creek.
I found this recipe on Pinterest yesterday and can't wait to make it in my ice cream maker...simple and I know it is good.
1 can condensed milk, 1/2 gal chocolate milk, 8 oz cool whip -- Like a Wendys Frosty----
The KEY to this recipe is to mix all the ingredients FIRST, then pour it into the ice cream maker. SOME people might try to just dump the ingredients into the ice cream maker individually….but THOSE people would be very much mistaken. lol. Trust me on this one. You will end up with a BIG MESS on your hands. (Not that *I* would know anything about that. *cough*)
In the midst of dark times, hope can be found in God's goodness and grand plan!
The story of Joseph in the Bible, reminds us that God has not forgotten us
and will redeem the messes in our lives for his glory---and our well-being.
