I Love the Way You......


Hello Friends!  If you still get my feed.  I know I haven't been around very much as of late. Life seems to have taken over and changed directions on me.  Not in a bad way, I've just not been making many cards lately.  I have tons of ideas that never seem to come together.  The card above is one I did just make for my husband to celebrate the day that he asked me to marry him 19 years ago.  :)  Love him still!  I used a digi that I'd stashed away in my printed out file.  I believe it's from Clear Dollar Stamps.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I've been spending lots of time with my kids and also making some things from scratch just for fun. :) Below is some homemade cough candies. The kids love them which is good since we've had some coughing going on this winter.  Here's a link to the youtube tutorial if you want to try it yourself.  HERE!


I put lots of icing sugar on them so they didn't stick together.  Mine didn't turn out very pretty, but they still work great!


Some more butter making going on.  I took a pic of the finished product today just to show how much butter I get from one litre/quart of whipping cream.  The leftover buttermilk is delicious in biscuits.  How I'd love to have a cow of my own so that I could make fresh butter more often!  And cheese...I'd love to learn how to do that!  But for now I am thankful the Lord has provided what he has for us.


I've been also taking more time to look at the world around me.  This past week I was out waiting for my smokies to cook on the BBQ...yes you heard that right it was actually warm enough to BBQ this past week.  We even made it up to 13C which is 55.5F.  Anyhow, below is what I seen up in the sky and thought it was worthy of a picture.  God is so good and I'm surrounded by his creation.  As of late with all the warmth, the squirrels have emerged en mass! Wow, I just can't believe how many there are and how energetic to!  We've been watching them chasing each other around the property from morning till night. LOL  Quite the distraction when there's other things to be done.


Thanks for dropping by and letting me share a bit of my life with you.
Praying you have a beautiful day!

Hello Jeniffer, I am hoping to make a few book markers today with a pretty punch out and string and other pretties! Doing very well her; a bit tired today, so I need to sit in my chair for a bit and work on a Granny Square. Made some dough and filled them with meat and veggies.
Sounds like you are just enjoying your life. That is really the true art of living! Taking pleasure in the days we are given!
Blessings, Roxy

No need to apologize for not being around. Those are some really cool things that have had your attention. :-) The card is really fun. Being interactive always brings out the kid in us doesn't it. LOL Hugs and keep enjoying all those wonders of God!

What a neat card for your husband!!
I'm impressed with those who make their own butter and cheese, etc!
Enjoy your warmth! We've had record cold. But we've also had lots of snow, which I love. :)

Hi, Jennifer!
I was just thinking about you this morning, and wanted to come by to let you know that I prayed for you and your family this morning. My hope is that you will give God praise, and lift up His precious name today.
Hugs,
Karen
