A French Press for tea!

IIsn't this a pretty little tea maker?  Loose tea or coffee made in a French Press completely mellows the flavor, no bitterness left, not a tinge.  I' loving my French press's.  We were in Ligoner yesterday at the most darling shop, I have a few more pictures to post, but back to my breakfast for now.

Coming attraction!



I am looking forward to seeing at least some of these volunteers from last year!  And I did not know that blogger had an app for blogging on iPads.  Now I can access my camera roll easily when I blog from this iPad.  A very good thing. I find I spend more time on this because it is so portable.  

We started spring revival at church today....good messages!  And, last evening I made 12 pair of earrings, I had wondered if I'd still remember how to make them and they practically made themselves.  Now to get that tatting going.  It's so nice to accomplish things.  That's all of my news for now, hope your day has been full of nice moments.

Just a small update.....Hubby is doing well, thanks for praying!  It is the end of the day already.  I always think I'm going to get a whole lot more done than I ever do.  Does that happen to you too?  Every day I'm sure I will do some tatting and there it lays....waiting on me to you-tube a 'how to' on doing a split ring.  I miss my needlework!  Hope your day tomorrow is sunny and sweet...

'As we worship Him in prayer, let us believe that the almighty God, who is working in our hearts, is able and willing to fulfill every one of His exceeding great and precious  promises.'  (Andrew Murray)

 Eph 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.'

Look who came to visit!

 This little girl was dropped off and turned up at our house.  We suspect she will be having kittens soon?  She is very affectionate and we've enjoyed having her around but..but....what will the future hold.  We had a cat dropped off once before, that we were oh so fond of and she had a litter of about 6 lively kittens on our back porch.  They swung off the lily stems and broke most all the plants....turned my flower bed into outdoor facilities.  Oh my, they were cute but destructive.  Finally, one sad day we managed to corral them and take them to the animal pound.  7 cats were just to many.

 Isn't she a little beauty?  I think Little Girl may have been someone's house pet,  she is so tame and loves you so whole-heartedly.
.
This gorgeous flower has given me so much enjoyment!  A $5 purchase from Aldi's before Easter.  It still looks like this!

My husband is doing well,  still has pain at times,  and tires extremely easily.  I don't think men understand that major surgery takes a long time of healing and fatigue and so on.  Still, he's been a trouper, and God's hand of blessing on him is evident and we are so thankful.  Please pray he will be continue to heal well and have no serious problems. It will be 3 weeks Wed. since his surgery and he sees his surgeon a week or so after that.

Psalms 9:10  And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee; for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee'.

Little blessings...

 After an 80 degree day yesterday....today's 60 degrees seems downright chilly!  and overcast!  I am missing the sunshine of yesterday.  It is so cheerful to see pots and baskets of pansies out for sale now!

How beautiful colors are,  I love the water color app I've used here.  Wouldn't you love to be able to draw and paint like this app does?  Oh, would I.  But...tooo lazy to try ...lol.

Doing Well...

 My grandson bought me this yummy tea when he went on a field trip to Williamsburg.  It smells heavenly with bergamot in it. I already had this nice teapot with the strainer built right in for loose tea.  I put the little johnny-jump-up in a salt cellar,  a pretty little gift from God.

 Thanks so much to everyone who prayed for my husband and his colon surgery.  It is a week and a half now and things are going well for him.  They removed part of his colon and reconnected it successfully.  All lymph nodes are cancer free and we are so very thankful.  'Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.'  Psalms 66:20


I just had to enlarge this picture....the sunshiny glory of daffodils are so cheering.  I am tired but glad to be home again and my husband is the best patient!  He is on a limited diet and I know that is hard for him.  I enjoyed the start of 'Call the Midwives' last week, and hope to enjoy tomorrow's show too.  There are some things on it I wouldn't endorse...but ever so much I enjoy!  I found it interesting that the newcomer on the show....played in Larkrise to Candleford....and she is a wonderful character actress.  How nice!

Trusting in the Lord with all my heart....

 I-tunes had this fun app on for free...'Etchings', and I really liked it, especially this Ben Franklin design.
You can put any of your own pictures in the center,  from your camera roll.

 Please remember us in your prayers....my husband is having serious colon surgery soon.  We are trusting our Father in heaven all will be well.  It will be complicated.  Claiming Proverbs 3: 5&6  Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding...

 This book is what I am re-reading right now.  It is a gem...I can't tell you how many times the author has caused me to laugh and think.....One of the main characters is a born again Christian....whose Mom named her Eldeen.  Reverse those letters and you get 'needle'.  I love it!  Free smiles, come & get'm.


 This is a true account and I hope I get 'into' it soon before it is due back at the library.  Thats the trouble with borrowing...it puts a pinch on you to read it ....now!   I've read a little and it IS interesting!  but...I'm totally into 'Suncatchers'.

And 'My Three Sons' is a gem.  We have a tiny under the counter tv in the kitchen, and I plug this is and try to watch at least one episode a day.  Its like sunshine and smiles...what a hoot!  I'm thinking of buying Episode 2.   I like the first seasons better than the  last ones.

I was researching some hip 'stuff' online and found the perfect description of what ails me...and I have bursitis!  I guess its ibuprofin and maybe phys. therapy for me soon.   My Mom warned me never to get old....and my lands, she was right. =)  

Psalm 116:1,2  I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. 2. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.    7. Return unto thy rest, O my soul....
