A Few Photos For You...


Good Day to You!

I wanted to share a few random photos
 that my 9 year old son took.
He is learning how to use a camera
and I think he is doing a great job at 
focusing on each shot he's captured.

I hope you enjoy!!


He loves his chickens...
(He actually goes in and pets them)


This was before the prairie turned green...


He loves birds!

Daisy and Hank playing...


Be Still...


Look! I think I can fly...


This says it all...
Thank you Jesus!



Seriously?!  More pictures...(LOL)


Hankie says "CHEESE!"


Joe and his logs... (Smiles)


Steam rising from the soil...


I have a ton more photos from him, so be expecting a few 
more throughout the course of the summer!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by...

Enjoy your day!

Skies & All The Wonder...

God's Grace Overflows

I just love sky pictures... Don't you?

It's just one amazing portrait
 God has given us each day to enjoy.

God's Grace Overflows

Some days, we get several 
portraits painted in the sky.

The sunsets are just glorious all on their own.

All the different colors God displays
 from one moment to the next is just breath taking.

Fire in the Sky...

Sometimes even the storm clouds are magnificent...

Simple BEAUTY full of power and peace...

Easy Pasta Salad...


Summer is here and you know what that means...
 it's extremely HOT outside!
And you need something light 
and cold to fill your tummies.

This pasta salad has been made
 more times than I can count.
This is my Auntie's specialty and the recipe
 was given to me when I got married.

I hope you all are doing well and 
are enjoying your summer.

Lots to do, place to see and fun things 
are on the agenda here!

How about you?
Do you have anything fun planned?

Pasta Salad

1 box Tri-Colored Spiral noodles, cooked
1/2 bottle Italian Dressing-more if needed
1 bag, frozen Broccoli/Cauliflower pieces,cooked and cooled
1/2 bag pepperoni
shredded cheese

Mix the cooked noodles, broccoli/cauliflower,
 pepperoni and the Italian dressing into a large bowl.
Serve with a handful of cheese on top.
(I don't mix the cheese in, for it tends to get soggy)
Store in the fridge.

ENJOY!


Thanks for taking the time to stop by....

Mountain Fun...

God's Grace Overflows

Good Day to you All!

It's been awhile since I've been on the Blogging World
and I thought I would pop in and show you a few pictures 
from our Mountain Trip.

We all had a blast and can't wait to go back soon!

I hope Summer is treating you all well.
We have many trips planned and lots to do this year...

I took a ton of photos, but thought I would share a few at a time.

Enjoy...

Taking A Moment...


I feel as if I had opened a book and 
found roses of yesterday sweet and 
fragrant, between it's leaves!

Anne of Green Gables




We can complain because the Rose bushes have thorns,
or we rejoice because thorn bushes have Roses.

Abraham Lincoln



When life throws thorns;
hunt for Roses...



The strong, sweet scent of a Rose reminds 
me of the powerful
sweetness of God's Love.



DON'T FORGET TO STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES!


Have a Lovely Day!

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies...


Good Afternoon!

Just taking a break from cleaning and organizing
to tell you about a really simple cookie recipe.

My dear friend gave me this cookie recipe
 about a month ago
and I must admit that I have now
 made these cookies 3 times since then.

They are so easy and so quick to make and
Yes they are Gluten Free!

(I don't eat everything GF, but love to try new recipes that are)


Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup peanut butter or other nut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together in a bowl. 

Place on cookie sheet and bake for about 9-10 minutes.
Cool on pan for a few minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.

I added a handful of oatmeal to mine, 
but you can use whatever you'd like.

I also made a batch using almond butter 
instead of the peanut butter 
and they turned out just as yummy!

Oh and I must warn you that you won't be able to eat just one!

Sorry...eat with caution!
Ha!



I hope you are all doing well!

Thanks so much for stopping by...
