I am moving a little slower this morning. My head, arms, shoulders, elbows, hands........you name it, it aches! Last night we had to go to our Caf Party at the college. Before I left I went out to our son's truck to take some of the things the grandkids left......... I opened the huge door and yup, I flipped on my back! FLAT ON THE SNOWY GROUND!!!!! I had these fluffy boots with nooooooo traction on the bottom. Now I am sure it was a funny site to see........I hurried and got myself back up on my feet, but I think I moved things that I haven't moved for awhile. Now even though I am 59, I am a buzzzzzz. I can't help it, but today I am not quite the buzz I usually am. Ouchy alllllll over! A little prayer sent up would be so appreciated.......so much to do!
Before we left the farm last night, I took a few pic's. The sun was just going down and was beautiful! The farm looked like it was a glow!
The trees and everything else had ice all over every branch!!!!!!
I was shooting pic's and turned........there was Mr. Turkey!!!!!!!! Scared me half to death! Remember he chased me around Grandpa's truck? He was all fanned out so pretty, but I was careful to keep my distance!
The farmland looked like a winter wonderland!
This tree was a sparkle lit up by the sunset!
I loved how this picture turned out. You are welcome to use this photo if you would like.
We left the farm and when we got to the top of the hill not far from our farm, I took this pic.
This morning the sun came up and all the trees are twinkling. Beautimus!!!!!!!

Thought you might like to see another recipe from the
Quick Brown Bread
1 c. milk
1 T. white- vinegar
2 c. whole-wheat flour (I use 1 whole-wheat and
1 unbleached white flour)
1 t. salt
1- 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c. molasses
1/4 c. shortening, melted and cooled (I use butter)
Combine milk and vinegar in a small bowl; let stand for a few minutes. In a separate large bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Mix thoroughly and set aside. Add remaining ingredients to milk mixture. Add milk mixture to four mixture: stir just enough to barely mix. Pour batter into a well-greased 9"x5" or 3 mini loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center tests clean. Makes one loaf.
I made the bread into 3 little mini loaves.
One of my favorite parts to a Gooseberry Patch Cookbook is all the beautiful illustrations and hints. This is such a sweet one!
We have been listening to sermons today on the CHRISTmas Story as we do our work today! It has been a blessing!
I will leave you with this.........precious ladies!
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Blessings to your day and sending a big
