Today we have been doing some house cleaning. It's always nice to have things in order. :-) I also got a bycicle this week! I've enjoyed riding it these last few days! :-)
Here is a picture of one of our kitty's, Phoenix, and her 6 kittens. They're really cute! Next is a picture of some cinnamon rolls with a glaze that I made. We have a bread machine that we can make five loaves at a time, and so instead of making them all into bread, we used 1/5 of the dough and made it into cinnamon rolls (Mmmm!) :-) Below that are some tea towels that I've done cross stitch and embroidery on. Thats kind of fun!
On Thursday we got about 8/10 of an inch of rain. Praise the Lord! We still need alot more, but every shower helps!
Well, I guess I'll go for now. Don't lose heart!

Aprons and Cornmeal Muffin Recipe

Gal 6:9 Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.

Hello! Today, and for the past several days, it has been very hot where we live. The temperatures have gotton up into the 100's! Wow! It is supposed to "cool down" a little (into the 90's) this weekend though, and there is a chance of getting some much needed rain. Anyway, here is a picture of some corn bread I made yesterday, (recipe listed below) and the aprons that I mentioned in an earlier post. :-D

Cornmeal Muffins

1/2 c. yellow cornmeal
3/4 c. flour
1/4 c. sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
3 T. oil
1 egg
1/2 c. milk

Preheat oven to 400*. In medium bowl, thoroughly mix together cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Blend in remaining ingredients just until moist. Fill greased muffin pans 2/3-full and bake 20 to 30 minutes. Yields: 8 muffins

We normally double this recipe and put it in a 13 x 9 inch pan, and cook 23-25 minutes. Enjoy! :)

Yesterday we went to watch a ball game with some of our church friends. But before that we met my orthodontist to see about my braces. There was a place on my gum that we wanted him to look at, to make sure it was ok, that may have been caused from a tooth moving really quickly. Since he lives close to the ball field, and was not in his office that day, he just had us come over to his house to adjust the braces. He made an adjustment and said my gum would be fine. :-) While there, he gave a tour of his house (which is an area of an old warehouse that has been remodeled) and even took us up on the roof and pointed out places in the town. We later met our friends at a restaurant to eat, then went to the ballgame. It was the first real ball game I have ever gone to. :-) The game itself didn't go terribly fast, but I still enjoyed watching, visiting with friends, cheering and clapping with the music that was played every now and then to keep the audience involved. :-) Sometimes a baseball would fly up into the stands, and if you caught it, they would let you keep it! Out of the two balls that came towards our area, a friend of ours, caught one! That was pretty neat! There were also people with video camera's that would project the players and audience onto a big screen. Our group was on there some, and that was neat too! The team we were rooting for, won, by one point, and the game was over. After the game they had a large display of fireworks! :-) They were really pretty! On the way out to our vehicle, there were some people riding in horse drawn carriages. :-) I liked those! The only thing was, that they were driving around amongst all the other traffic, which probably wasn't the safest thing. :-/ lol! Anyway, :-) overall we had an enjoyable day! :-)

In Christ!
