What a Great Kids book!

Wow! I love the art work. The bright colors & wonderful animals are super! Any kid would love this!

It takes Ephesians 3:17-19 right down to where a kid can understand it with things that kids can see in their own worlds!

This one is going to be read to the grandbabies!

Eggs! Eggs! More Eggs!

What do you do when you are overcome with eggs from your lovely ladies? Why you can always make pasta! I made several kinds last week.
First you put 2 cups flour in a bowl. Make a well in the center. Add 1 1/2 tsp salt & 2 eggs. Mix with a heavy fork. As it comes together in a ball take it out & knead it until smooth & elastic. You don't want it to be too sticky so if you need to add a small amount of flour.

Next you roll the dough out to about 1/8 inch thick.
Next I lay my dough out on flour sack towels to dry briefly. Usually until I am done rolling out the other dough. The it is time to decide what shape pasta you are going to make! This is the fun part! I have several pictures of different shapes that I made last week. You can make almost anythign that you can buy with the exception of the tube pasta unless you have a pasta maker with those attachments.

I usually let them dry for a couple of hours. Then I either cook them or freeze them. They make the best home made chicken noodle soup!! Yummy!!

Lioness Rising

What imagery! It just makes you want to sit up & roar! The lion is a majestic creature & the lioness is certainly a force to be reckoned with! If God's vision is for His ladies to rise up as the lioness then this is the book to start your journey. It is based on God's word & strives to make you aware that this is for you also. Great read!!“I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.”

Here They Come!!

The seed catalogs have started to arrive. It always makes me start planning my garden. When I first start however, it has waaaaaaaay tooooo much in it! Then I have to weed it down to what I can really afford to buy & plant.

I have decided this year has to be a big salsa year so there will be lots of tomatoes, onions, green, hot, & banana peppers.  Of course I always plant way to much but it gives me a chance to share!

What are you planning on planting in your garden this year??

The Goodness of God by Randy Alcorn

What a meaty read this was! It is a real thinker! I read it & will want to reread it-it is one of those that is small but packs a big punch! I already am thinking of someone who might benefit from reading this book. I think it will be a great help for her! “I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.”
