Leaving Friday morning for our annual week in Tahoe!  So looking forward to this trip as we will visit family coming and going and also see some good friends.

I plan on taking my camera and computer, so I can share some of the sights and sounds of Tahoe.

I have been wanting a "hook" to hang my aprons on!  The other day at the Thrift Store I spotted this hook.  The picture of a child and a dog and the word "friendship".  It came home with me!

I decided to hang it out of the way, but easy to get too.  My Kitty apron is peeking you see it?
I really like this little corner in my kitchen!

Simple things..that should be the way we live life!

I Thessalonians 5:16-18

"Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

Dear Lord, so many times I tell myself I don't know your will, that I feel lost, and then I see a verse in your Word that so clearly states You will for ME.  

You want me to rejoice always, pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances.  This is Your will for Me...and I want an easier path.  But what peace, joy and freedom come from being obedient to these three things.  

Hard, but not impossible, because the indwelling Holy Spirit, our Helper gives me the grace and power to be obedient, and KNOW I'm pleasing you as I do Your will!  Lord no matter what comes into  my life, help me to rejoice always, pray continually, and give You thanks in all circumstances.  I love You.  Amen.

After three days of baking for the Villa Ramona Fund Raiser Bake Sale I needed to sit down, put my feet up, and enjoy a fresh bouquet from Trader Joe's.

I really need to learn to say "NO" but it doesn't come easy for me.  As I've been a "Yes, I'd love too" person for way too many years.  My last "Yes, I'd love too" came as the Baker for our Bake Sale Fund Raiser for the Villa.

Since it seems I am the only one who bakes in the Villa, I said I would do the baking if they would supply all the ingredients.  Little did I know how many orders would be put in for Banana Bread, Cookies, and Scones

The Bake Sale Fund raiser was on Monday, so I spent Saturday, Sunday afternoon and Monday morning in the Kitchen!!!!!

Packaged, labeled and ready to take down to the Clubhouse was 15 loaves of banana bread, 20 dozen cookies (choc. chip, oatmeal, and peanut butter) and 4 plates of scones.  

Monday night, when all was said and done, it sure felt good to crawl in between nice clean sheets.  

The Villa has a Annual Fund Raiser for really good causes, but this is the first time they have had a Bake Sale as part of it...I guess the Lord brought us here for "just a time as this"....or was that Queen Esther....haha.  But that's another story.

Now you know why you haven't been visited for a few days!!
