Rainy Saturday

What do you do on a rainy Saturday and it is just a few days before Christmas.  I decided to cook.  I found a sugar cookie recipe on Pinterest  that I decided to give a try   They are amazing.  You can find it here http://addapinch.com/cooking/2013/12/04/chewy-sugar-cookies-recipe/#.UrXi-vRDua5  I was so impressed.  Didn’t know I could make such a delicious cookie.

From cookies, I went to a recipe for rolls.  I thought the Parmesan Pull Apart bread sounded good and they are.  They are flavored with garlic and Parmesan cheese, great for those Italian and French dishes or just a snack.  You can find it here..http://foodapparel.com/parmesan-pull-apart-bread/

I sent off all my Christmas cards last week.  Thank you SendOutCards!!  I had the job done in about 10 minutes.  To learn more about how you can save time and money sending greeting cards, go here  https://www.sendoutcards.com/69473/.  You can check out my Creative Cards  blog at cardpromptings.wordpress.com.  You can send cards for any occasion and you can create your own.

I have been having a lot of fun with my Advent Calendars from Jacquie Lawson at jacquielawson.com.  If you haven’t seen those calendars, you are missing some real Christmas fun.  There is a new activity each day right up to Christmas.  It is awesome to me to see the additions that occur each day in the entry scene.  These computer gurus are just so clever.  Wish I knew how to do some of those things.

Days get busier as Christmas gets closer, so in case I don’t post again before Santa comes, I want to wish you all a

Merry Christmas

Winter Diamonds

Winter came with a vengeance last week.  My power went off during the night and came back on at noon.  My internet was down until late in the evening.  It started with sleet all day and then most of the night, turning to snow all the next day.  The trees were covered with ice and soon the weight caused limbs to break.  A cedar that lives just across the fence of my back yard collapsed from the top.  I now have a damaged fence.  It required a chain saw to clear the limbs off my fence and storage building.  I now have a pile of limbs in my back yard that will have to wait for a thaw to be moved.

It has been a few days and the temperature has not risen above freezing.  The roads finally cleared enough that I felt safe driving so I made a trip to the store.  It is beautiful out there.  The trees and shrubs are still covered with ice and  the ground is still covered with snow.  The sun was brilliant in a clear sky.  A million diamonds flashed among the limbs of the trees.

I tried to capture it on film but was not successful.  The diamonds just would not show up.  I will just have to carry that scene in my mind.  Maybe I can capture it on canvas.

Are you ready for Christmas?  Have you sent your greeting cards yet?  I can show you how to get those cards off with a lot less labor.  Go to my blog Creative Cards at  http://cardpromptings.wordpress.com/

It’s a Blustery Day

This part of the world is offering another blustery day.  The sun is out but the wind is cold.  It is a day for warm clothes and a walk with your significant other.  Mine is my Maltese, Belle.  She loves to go for walks.  All I have to do is pick up her leash and she is heading for the door.

It pays sometime to be an early riser.  I was greeted with another spectacular sunrise this morning.  It is so awesome to see the clouds glow with what appears to be an inner light.

I keep hearing people talk about making money with blogs.  I have been doing a lot of research lately trying to learn about it.   So far everyone is talking over my head.    I need a step by step introduction to see how it is done.

I would like to invite you to look at my other blogs.  Hopefully you will find something to interest you.
