Glorious

There’s a movie that just came out called Breakthrough. It’s a true story about a mother, Joyce Smith, who would not give up hope and continued to pray after her teenage son John was clinically dead for almost an hour. He had fallen through ice on a lake in Missouri and had been underwater for 15 minutes. John was not expected to survive, but miraculously, his pulse came back. This movie is about the power of prayer, faith, hope, and an amazing miracle. Continue reading

Thick & Chewy Peanut Butter Crispy Treats

I don’t think I ever would have made these Thick & Chewy Peanut Butter Crispy Treats if it hadn’t been for Marijo. One day at work I went by her desk and she had three bags of marshmallows sitting on one side of her desk area. “What are you going to do with those?” I asked. “Someone had extra marshmallows and gave me some,” she said. “I’ll probably give them to my grandkids. Do you want a bag?” Continue reading

A Sweet Springtime Treat

A Sweet Springtime Treat @ NancyC

I love those Malted Milk Speckled Eggs…they are my favorite Easter candy (and those Cadbury Creme Eggs are a close second)! I buy them every year and eat way too many of them! One year, I found a Robin’s Egg Blue teacup at a flea market and thought it would make a great candy dish for my speckled eggs—I still use it for that! I love the way the pretty pastel speckled eggs look nestled inside the blue teacup. Maybe you’ll be able to use this idea for your own Easter candy!

It’s fun using teacups for other uses in addition to drinking tea. I’ve been to tea rooms with friends where they serve soup in teacups–isn’t that a great idea? If you’re a teacup collector, it’s a great way to use your teacups more often! 🙂

Hope you are enjoying all your Easter and springtime goodies! What’s your favorite Easter treat?

My Gardening Journal

My_Gardening_Journal

I received a copy of My Gardening Journal to review; all opinions expressed are mine.

I enjoy gardening, so I was looking forward to reviewing this gardening journal from Fox Chapel Publishing (softcover). Right now, I’m doing more container gardening since I don’t have a yard, but My Gardening Journal works for whatever type of gardening you do! It’s a handy little journal that makes it easy to keep track of how your garden is coming along and log any information you want to remember about the plants, flowers, and/or produce you are growing.
