|…this is the view from my comfy chaise chair,
from under my favorite Steeler blanket,
with my hot cup of coffee, (this week’s, @ home, brewing choice Seattle’s Best Creme Brulee) within reach,
(along with my home phone, cell phone, tv remote and favorite chapstick)….
with my green laptop, camera & accessory bag at the end of my chair,
and my fuzzy friend, Chewy, practically attached to me.
(The picture below is awful, I know. As soon as Chewy hears the camera, he always moves….guess he’s camera-shy…argh)
I think I have a case of the winter-blahs.
I haven’t been feeling too inspired…
I am hoping to accomplish lots of scrappy projects this weekend,
PLUS my Studio Calico kit of the month should be coming tomorrow!!! (yippee!!)
…11 days till I turn 40…
|Ever wake up in the middle of the night and instantly someone comes to your mind, but you don’t understand why?
I believe that God has placed that person on your heart.
What do I mean?
I feel that it is a call to prayer.
God has placed that person on your heart, so that you can remember them in prayer.
Maybe even send them a card in the mail, (or email or text).
Or bake some cookies for them.
Just to let them know YOU were thinking about THEM.
Maybe they need encouraged.
Maybe they are going through something and they feel all alone.
They need to know they are loved.
They need to feel God’s love…..maybe THROUGH YOU!
I encourage you, the next time someone comes to your mind, out-of-the-blue,
stop & whisper a prayer for them.
You don’t need to know the details. God already knows.
|Today I baked some cookies. Snickerdoodles. (My hubby’s favorite.)
Plus God had placed someone on my heart that was having some physical problems, so I thought that maybe some homemade cookies would help sweeten their day.
Here’s the yummy recipe for Betty Crocker Snickerdoodles.
This is the recipe, plus my timing for using baking stones instead of cookie sheets:
Yields: approx. 48 cookies
*These cookies are peanut-free.
|Above is an altered clipboard that I made. It can be used to display a favorite photo or a t0-do list.|
|I love wrapping homemade goodies in pretty cellophane. I also made this tag to match the card & clipboard.
Below is the finished “Warm Winter Wishes” set.
Only 18 days till 40!
What will my “word for 2010” be? (one little word–inspired by ali edwards)
In 2008, I began my new lifestyle of counting calories, working out, and getting healthy & strong.
So, for 2009, I wanted to “refocus & renew”. Not on my physical, but my spiritual.
As I began to think about my word for 2010…I finally decided upon “stretch”.
I tried to think of a word that sums up how I want to live in 2010. (This goes along with my “40 till 40”, not as lessons learned, but learning.)
How does the word stretch apply?
What’s your ‘word’ for 2010?
