Sure was good to be able to go to The Food Ministry at Church and help a little. I signed the people in and enjoyed seeing them again. Saw a few new people. Sam, the Church dog, stayed with me the entire afternoon. The guys were working on a trailer load of potatoes. Then I got a nice surprise when Amanda that I worked with came to speak to me. That was a nice surprise. (She worked with me at All Seasons.) I was really tired, but it was a good day.
I had several calls on Sunday. You sure made my day brighter. Thanks to Cheryl Sutphin, of Collinsville, for a card and I talked to Wanda, from on the mountain, and then Donald Willard called. He said if the weather was good, he would be here this weekend to mow- if it don’t rain. I really appreciate you!!
Enjoyed Dennis and Mary Simmons and Roscoe the dog coming to visit Saturday. Roscoe is so sweet and well behaved.
Have you seen any locusts this year? On Saturday, I saw two huge ones on my desk – ugly — had big eyes!
On Monday when I came home from The Food Ministry, I saw a package in the chair on the porch, boy was I surprised! I hadn’t read those books. Sure makes me a happy camper since I have to stay close to home. Beverly knows what I like- Amish books.
We have so much food at The Food Ministry, and I’m so happy to share some of my box with some of my neighbors.
Thanks to Keith Medley for getting my trash and getting my supplies from Patrick Building Supply and putting sealer on the roof. Maybe my crew can mow the yard this weekend if it’s pretty weather, and I’ll be in good shape.
Time is going so fast and I think it does, maybe it’s because I am older.
It’s always good to hear from Mary Ann and get all the latest news in D.C. They are kind of like us back here. Hello to The Enterprise Staff, maybe I can see you in person someday soon. Be safe and God bless!
Food for Thought- There’s nothing like an hour or two of star gazing to regain perspective on the greatness and goodness of God. The Heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handwork. It’s amazing!
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk
1 egg well beaten
1 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup sifted flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup melted butter
Combine buttermilk and egg, add oats and brown sugar, sift together the dry ingredients, and add to buttermilk mixture. Stir in butter and blend well. Spoon into greased muffin cups, filling each one about two thirds full. Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes.
Hint- Way to eat more plants- try lentils instead of beef and pork or chicken in tacos or burritos.
