Reading Bout The Good Ole Days

Tuesday I left for a doctor appointment in time to stop at Gracie's - my favorite thrift store.  Probably over 1/2 of my library came from Gracies where I usually pay fifty cents for a hard cover book.

Not disappointed I came home with a big bag of books - some for me and some for friends.  The fun find was 8 books about the old days with lots of pictures in Norman Rockwell fashion.

Precious Husband tells me he loves for me to read to him so I think these books will make delightful reading material maybe at dinner time.  Yes, it will be good to read about the good ole days.

Yellow Bowls -- Yes Again : )

 Sonora, California (vacation pictures)

Monica over at The Homespun Heart has one of my must read blogs each day.  Her love for the Lord and the amazing job she does as a wife and mother is just amazing.  Yesterday she referred to a post about yellow bowls.  Whoppee!  Go check her post about cinnamon rolls made in her yellow bowl.  So fun to find someone of like mind concerning yellow bowls!

This Sunday our church is having a family potluck and my yellow bowl will be attending full of potato salad or Famous Dave's coleslaw I am not sure which yet.  Along with the yellow bowl I am taking homemade vanilla ice-cream.  The recipe for this awesome ice-cream was given to me by my cousin, Cathy Rose who shared it at our recent family reunion in California.  This ice-cream was the hit of the reunion for sure!

Tempt My Tummy Tuesday

Not sharing a family favorite recipe today but rather giving a heads up if you like cold blended coffee drinks.  On a whim I purchased a box of Kirkland's iced coffee drinks at Costco and oh my gosh are they ever good.  I add caramel and whip cream and I dare say say are the best I have ever had.  For the cost of a couple of large blended coffees at McDonalds you can purchase a box of 30!  Whoopee, what a deal - whoopee, what a wonderful cool refreshing drink!  Living in Arizona where the heat is now reaching 112* we do appreciate cool things.

Now when Precious Husband receives a text asking if he wants to have coffee on the veranda : ) when he gets home he knows it will be a cold caramel cappuccino waiting for him on the porch under the fans.  They are delightful!

Go over and see more great recipe links at Lisa's Tempt My Tummy Tuesday.

Out of all the gifts to you, you shall present every offering due to the LORD, from all the best of them. . . Numbers 18:29
Concerning the subject of gifts Gina Bridgeman prays, "Give me one more gift, Lord: the courage to use all You've given me for Your glory"

Amen Lord.
