I've always liked this vintage Post Card. It is lovely and cheerful. Wasn't God wonderful to let us enjoy yellow roses?  Even a picture of a beautiful rose is special.  I pray daily for God's care in everthing.  We  had a message from Psalm 91 last Sunday, and it was very special.  How trusting in  God is a safe place, a place of comfort.

I made these candies a while ago.  Super easy to make...I miss the Merkins? candy melts for coating.

Crispy (no bake) Peanut Butter Balls

Mix well...1 cup peanut butter (smooth) with 1 7oz. jar marshmallow creme.

Add and mix well...1 1/2 cups rice crispies cereal....shape into balls and coat with dipping chocolate (Merkins) or 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips plus 4 teaspooons shortening. Melt and coat peanut butter balls. Refrigerate until chocolate hardens. This melted chocolate chips and shortening did not harden for me as I wanted.  I have made this recipe often with Merkins and it was 4 star!

Psalm 91:2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God: in him will I trust.

Just before the month of March ends....and at the end of the day, praying for the end of the virus. Still doing puzzles and reading.  I used to really enjoy learning how to use the 'net' for my blog.  That was when I spent hours online, learning and trying new things for my sidebar. I remember how exciting it was to publish a post and visit others. Health issues have changed that somewhat but life is good because God is good, no matter what.

Prettty things...

This reminds me of the time in my life that I crocheted many doilies....large pineapple designs and ruffled doilies.  It was my heritage perhaps.  My Grandmother and Aunts were always making something beautiful! The one shown here I coudn't resist buying. The most challenging one I ever did was a tatted doiley, full of little roses. I loved a bit of a challenge back then. Don't those pink pansies on the edge look like litle dresses?

Dr. Pol...

This should be a picture of my Valentine's Day roses, but uploading photos isn't as easy as it used to be for some reason. Thankfully I saved this vintage clip art and still love the beauty of it.  

It is a good day for checking in on the world wide web.  I just need to be consistant if thats possible. My Parkinson's is a bit of a dictator and determines how I feel and what I get done in a day.

I have been super enjoying the Dr. Pol episodes via Disney +  or Nat. Geo (or You Tube) and doing a lot of reading =).  He is a vet and the episodes contained in 15 seasons are so much fun to watch....and beautifully done!

A special time...

I wish I could bake like I used to, now I am in the age group that can gain weight by just looking at food, or so it seems.  These little lassies do appear to be a little plump themselves, don't they!

The advertisements to buy for Christmas  miss the blessings.  When Christ came to earth to be our Savior,  there is nothing that can compare with that. God is love!  Peace on earth, good will to men.

Hubby just got our old faithful Christmas tree down from the attic at my request.  It looks like a lovely sunny day outside, but it will be chilly with a 'bite' I think.

I have been watching reruns of The Great British Baking Show....and never tire of watching it. That program is so beautifully done and the bakers are brave souls to be there, giving the challenges their best bakes.

And isn't it something nice to enjoy a treat from the bake shop (or something baked at home).  What is your favorite?  My favorite is definitely 'lady locks' or creme horns as some call them.

It's almost here...

Happy Thanksgiving.....I have yet to turn my mind to preparing for this special day.  I'd better hurry and plan our menu.  Delicious but simple will do just fine for me.   'It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.' Lamentations 3:22-23   I am thankful.

I have been remiss with posting and when I did try to post just now....I was locked out of my blog. I have a harder time with passwords now that I am old...ahh, older. Go figure!  Did anyone get the 'Willard' newsletter from Susan Branch? It was very nice.
