I heard a good quote this week: “Repentance is a gift from God. It’s like taking a shower for our soul.” Tiz Huch
I smile when my husband comes home from the grocery store with boxes of cereal I would never eat if you tied me down and forced me and then he only eats my granola! I’m looking for a good homemade granola recipe.
Even though I gave a lot away, containers of Granny Smith apples fill my kitchen counters. I made an apple streusel yesterday. The recipe is on my cooking blog. This season, I received an apple corer gift and it speeds up the slicing. Plus it’s fun to use!
We ate the streusel dessert while watching Dancing with the Stars last night. My favorite dancer is Kurt Warner! Talk about a smile.
Fall has been delayed in Arizona this year. I did see a few yellow leaves on the Cottonwood trees by the river. Big deal. Temps are supposed to drop and rain is predicted this week. My thoughtful brother-in-law knows I love autumn. He sent me a photo from Chicago that he snapped. I feel loved that he did that!
This is the season for fall festivals and I attended one in the town where I work. Besides carnival rides, art presentations and tons of food, my favorite is strolling through the booths. I found a cute brown apron that made it into my daughter’s bag of birthday gifts. She loved it!
We enjoyed having Amy and her hubby over for dinner last weekend for her birthday celebration. I made lasagna with a side of meatballs in sauce. The frozen white bread baked okay but turned out kind of bland so Amy put her new apron on and whipped up some garlic bread. She is so funny! I took a movie of her making her recipe and we had a good laugh. I warned her that I’m featuring it on my cooking blog and she was just grateful I didn’t post it on FB! I learned that if I want lots of help in the kitchen, aprons are a great gift.
I started reading through the Bible last October and just finished that particular study plan a few weeks ago. So now I’m on to something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I began to read The Narrated Bible in Chronological Order. I hope I can complete it by next October! It never ceases to amaze me how powerful God’s Word is, regardless of the reading plan.
I leave you today with a view of the Red Rocks of Sedona taken from a helicopter ride Amy’s husband gave her for her birthday gift today. Happy birthday to my first born!
