A VERY GOOD SUNDAY


We have been looking for a new church home since we moved and have visited several.  Today was our second time to visit and I think we may have found a match!  The worship service was wonderful.  The sanctuary was decorated elegantly and the music just marvelous.  The Pastor is a true Bible Teacher, and that is what we've been looking for.  After church we stopped by Home Depot as I wanted a couple of Poinsettias to complete my "red and green" decorations.  


Early this morning I put a pork roast in the crock pot and made a bowl of cold slaw, and when we got home from church, the house smelled wonderful.  It rained today so a hot lunch tasted really good.  Several of you have asked about Molly.  She is doing great.  The wound is completely healed and we have a few more days of medicine and I think she'll be as good as new.  This afternoon she snuggled on the couch for a nap.


Spent the afternoon watching some exciting football, and between timeouts, and half time made a batch of sugar cookies.  The cookie jar has been empty way too long.

Hope you had a marvelous Sunday too.  So thankful for the rain.  Did you have any today?

  3. I'm glad you are finding a church home that is teaching truth and where you feel comfortable. Sometimes it can take a really long time. The poinsettias are beautiful and the sugar cookies look wonderful. I have been keeping peanut butter cookies on hand in the freezer. We love them like that.

  5. I'm glad to hear you have found a church home too. Being between churches is hard. It's good to hear Molly is feeling better. She is a sweet little thing.

  6. No rain and it was WARM in Texas!!! 80 degrees! We did some outside work while it was warm. I should have given Lucy a bath!!! Too late. It will be 40 degrees cooler tomorrow so I will bathe her in the bathtub! It's good to find a church HOME! We found ours, too!

    1. We are still having a gentle rain, and I love it. I remember when you found the perfect church for you, and I knew we would too, if we just waited on the Lord.

  7. No rain yet. It's supposed to come in the next 48 hours but I'm not getting my hopes up yet. They keep telling us we're going to get some, but it all stays up in the LA area. How about going outside and blowing really hard to the south for us, Wanda :)

    By the way, for a roast pork in the crock pot do you have a way to make it dry and crispy like a roast or do you add water? This is a real question, I'm actually trying to learn to cook (at 77!) now that I have more time. I'm ashamed to admit my incompetence.

    Love to Mollie from Scruffy.

    1. Gentle rain again this morning. Loving it. Chris, we like pulled pork sandwiches, so I take a small pork roast (the tube style) and cut it into 4 pieces and season it with salt, pepper, garlic, etc. and brown it in olive oil. Then I put some BBQ sauce in bottom of crock pot. Then add the pieces of pork, and pour any drippings and add some more BBQ sauce to top and cook 5 -6 hours....so tender it pulls apart for sandwiches or anything else you want to use it for.

  8. Sugar cookies - yes, please! I like the little tree trivet (?) on display behind the cookies. So sweet. And I love the Nativity scene in your banner.

    1. Hi Suza ~ Oh wish we could sit and visit with a cookie or two. I collect trivet's and have several Christmas ones. I have a Willow Tree Nativity set, but didn't have room to put it up this year. The one on my coffee table is made from a wine box. I'll have to share that story some time soon.
