Was it Fatal?

I thought I'd share with ya'll this funny newspaper clipping that my 95 year old client had in one of her books. So funny! Enjoy! :-D

Was It Fatal?
A woman is said to have asker her husband to take down the recipe being given on the radio on morning. The husband did his best but got two stations at once. One was broadcasting exercises and the other the recipe. This is what he got:
Hands on hips, place one cup of flour on shoulders. Raise knees and depress toes and wash thoroughly in one-half cup milk. In four counts raise the lower legs and mash two hard-boiled eggs in a sieve. Repeat six times in one cup of flour; breathe naturally and bend white of egg backward and forward over head. In four counts make a stiff dough that will stretch at waist. Lie on the walnut, hop to a standstill in boiling water, but do not boil into a gallop. In ten minutes remove from fire and dry with towel, breathe naturally, dress in warm flannel and serve with fish soup.

Fall Is Here!

Fall is here! I can feel it and see it all around me. I love fall. Sitting inside a cozy house, cuddled next to the fire in a blanket, with a cup of hot apple cider and a good book, while watching the wet and overcast weather outside. Of course we are not always able to enjoy the weather in this fashion, but it can be enjoyed in so many different ways. I have friends that really love being out in the doesn't really bother me, but I prefer to be dry :-P I would upload some really nice pictures I got last fall, but they are currently all on my other laptop at my parents house. Hopefully I'll have everything on one computer again soon! My best friend is due in a few short weeks with her first baby. Many of my other friends have headed off to college and yet others and still out of work and looking for jobs. It seems that so many people I know are at a transition point in their life. I know what that is like and it isn't always very easy figuring out what to do and where God is calling you in this next step of your life. I'm so very blessed in where God has me in my life now and have learned so much in those transition times in my life. Nevertheless I continue to learn as I struggle with those day to day challenges that life presents.
This is a picture of me with my new apron that a friend from HSA made for me!
May everyone have a blessed and enjoyable fall season!

We are back from Michigan! I had such a great time with my friends and really enjoyed getting to see so much of the State and where my friend lives and hangs out. Here's a few pics
