Spring Plants

Spring Plants are nice to have and many of you if you are like me may all ready have plants in your yard that come up every year. Adding new plants can be expensive if you purchase each plant at top price or you may be able to do a few things to cut this expense down just a bit:

  • plant sales are a great way to get new plants. Garden clubs and other fund raisers may sell plants at a discounted price to help raise funds for their group. Ours here comes in the middle of May perfect time to plant and I will be there to get my share for sure

  • friends may have new sprouts that you can get a bit of to plant in your yard. My mother and grandmother taught me to do this and I believe I will post on the how tos here on my blog soon

  • many times there are places that will give plants away to help promote the green earth, arbor day or another promotion. Keep your eyes open for events such as this

Do you have other ideas? I would love to hear them.

Thank You to two of my best friends always at the ready

My son just left for his senior trip. He will be back real late tonight. Again my best friend, my sister in law helped out. God bless her soul. She raises 3 kids, takes care of her house and her husband and is always there to help whoever needs it. My daughter is a lot like her but lives too far away to help us out a whole lot but is always at the ready to give advice, have a great conversation and to be there for those that need her. These two ladies are quite busy with their own children, their houses and responsibilities and still are great help to me. I wanted to honor them both with a thank you this morning. Thank you for all you two do. This being Aloha Friday which is hosted by An Island Life I wanted to ask you all a question as well.

Who is your best friend? Who is it that needs a big thank you for being there in your life? Who is it that seems to be there no matter what you need?

For me there are many but the ones that I go to all the time are the two girls I mention my sis in law and my oldest daughter. Thank you

Thankful for Winds are Changed

I am so thankful for all that the Lord has provided for me. For the great things that I have on and off line, for the little ways all seem to work out, and for the great family that I belong to I am so super happy to have so much in my life to be thankful for. As I sit at my desk and hear the warm winds howl I begin to think about the changes in life and how they swiftly blow in.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
Joshua 1:9

Changes that will see my children leaving home and going to do their own thing soon will come. I have taught them the best that I can and I know that they love the Lord and have a good relationship with him. The above verse says it so well. I may not go with them but my Lord will always be with them. For that I am always thankful.

I am thankful that five out of my six children have completed or nearly completed 12 years of schooling. I am so thankful for all those that added the little encouragement, the graciousness that we often saw and the friendships that we made along the way. Seeing my children graduate for school is priceless and something that I give the credit to my Lord above.

I am thankful for the choices that my children make. Not letting others to tell them how to do it or confirming to the world but showing love to others including their selves when they make the decisions they do. My son is taking a young lady to the prom a preachers daughter who is very involved in the ministry. My son has always felt the pull to ministry as well and this combination of friends and dates I feel was put together through prayer. For this I thank my Lord as well.

O is for Onion Blossom recipe

The letter of the day over at ABC Wednesday is .........

the letter O as in O is for Onion Blossom

2 large sweet onions, unpeeled
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon chili powder
2-1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning, divided
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
Oil for deep-fat frying
Leaving the root end intact, peel the outer skin of the onion. Cut a small slice off the top. Starting at the top of the onion and on one side, make a cut downward toward the root end, stopping 1/2 in. from the bottom. Make additional cuts 1/8 in. from the first until there are cuts completely across top of onion.
Turn the onion a quarter turn so the slices are horizontal to you. Repeat the cuts 1/8 in. apart from each other until there is a checkerboard pattern across entire top of onion.
In a small bowl, make dip by combining the mayonnaise, sour cream, chili powder and 1-1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning; set aside.
In a 1-gal. plastic bag, combine flour and remaining Cajun seasoning. Place milk in a small deep bowl. Coat the cut onion in flour, then dip into milk and back into the flour mixture.
Fry in enough oil to cover onion at 375° for 5 minutes or until golden, turning once. Remove from oil; place on serving plate. Discard the very center of the fried onion blossom. Place a few spoonful of dip in the center of blossom and serve immediately.

Sweet Friends

Here is a picture of a couple of great friends. They attend church with us, drive their mommy (one of my best friends) a bit crazy and love to play sports. The one standing up is a wonderful softball player and the one sitting down is a discus thrower in track who does quite well. These girls are great friends of my children and will be heading to Canada on their mission trip with my son.

Snacks that May Help Lower Cholesterol

I am not sure about you but some of my mommy habits have to do with snacks. I am learning though that the bag of chips I may of snacked on when I was younger is not my snack of choice now. I have been trying my best to find healthier snacks. Thanks to the website everyday health I now have some options of snacks that may help lower my cholesterol as well. These snacks included:
  • nuts and seeds
  • apples
  • oat bran
  • grapefruit

Memories of Last Prom Season

It seems in this house with six (6) teens prom has a season of its own. With teens you often see seasons change with sports, events and yes Prom has a season of its own as well. Last Prom my daughter was able to come home for a visit and bring their little bundle of Joy. This year they will not be here we will miss them but my sis in law and love will be here to help out. We have two proms and three prom goers this year. Time will be short and special and I will be helping in the Prom for our home town. I will be chaperoning After Prom as well as helping out in other areas. I will be posting new Prom pictures next week and the week after as I said there are two different proms. Here are some pictures of last year to give you a taste of what I am talking about.

here are my two as they are waiting for their dates
