  • As a hair clip.
  • Cover a plastic napkin ring with same yarn, and hot glue flower atop.
  • Attach to hair band.

A Single Rose

  A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world. 
Leo Buscaglia

The first single rose in my garden planted by best friend,
 my sweet husband, who IS my world!  

 Pink roses carry a connotation of grace and elegance, as well as sweetness and poetic romance. Different shades of pink also carry their own significance. Dark pink roses are symbolic of gratitude and appreciation, and are a traditional way to send a message of thanks. Light pink roses are associated with gentleness and admiration.

Have a rosy day,

Are we Galatians 6: 10 people?

"As we have, therefore, opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them 
that are of the household of faith."  Galatians 6:10

How very thankful we are for the blessing of Galatians 6:10 people in our lives.   Over past couple of weeks those in our church body and neighboring friends have shown their goodness to us.  After crushing my right ring finger in the car window, fellow believers have come to our aid with wonderful meals (and fellowship).  They did some errands for us, and kept us in their prayers.  How wonderful it is to be apart of this loving, caring community!  How true it is that people need people, and that people need to help people.  If you are like me, you find it much easier to be helping others than to have someone serving you.  I find such pleasure in knowing that I have been a help to others.  But do we rob others of blessings when we are so self-sufficient, thinking we do not need the help of others? There needs to be that balance of giving and receiving, blessing and being blessed.  God has placed us in our church families for a be a help and blessing to one another.

So let us each, as we have opportunity, do good to those in our realm of influence...our families, our neighborhood, our friends, those at work and at school, and especially those of like faith.  May our song be, "Make me a blessing, make me a blessing to someone today!"

Have a Blessed Day,

A Few of My favorite Things

After my appointment with the hand surgeon, we just had to stop 
by Trader Joe's this to pick up a few of our favorite things...Yumm!  


So easy...set them while frozen on a baking sheet and let them sit
 uncovered all night.  In the morning, pop them in the oven for 20-25 minutes 

So warm and delicious! With a side of 


These dazzling, dark-purple, seedless gems are a crossbreed of 
Concord and Thompson grapes.  $2.79 for a one pound container!
Sweet Chili Sauce made with red chilies and Thai garlic in a sweet-sour sauce ($1.29).
I poured it over low-fat cream cheese and served with Whole Wheat Lavash Chips.
What a healthy snack or appetizer! 

 And, of course, we always buy cheese!  Our favs--Tocano with black pepper
and Asiago with Rosemary and Olive Oil.  Both cost around $4.00 per package.

 And Fresh Black Figs from California $3.49 for a one-pound container.
I will be trying this new recipe:  

Fresh Figs with Ricotta and Honey

Be Back Shortly

I will not posting on my blog this week, but will be hopefully back at it soon.  While getting into our car last evening, my husband accidentally rolled the window up catching my fingers.  We spent the next 5 hours in ER.  I had severed my right ring finger and broken the top part of my finger in three places.  Fortunately the ER physician was able to reset the breaks and stitch up the lacerations. He stated that I would need to make an appointment with hand surgeon to get in asap. So that's what's up and hope to be back to blogging in a week or so.

Have a Blessed Day,
