A Snow Day

I had planned to post last week about the rare snow day we had down here. Because of unforeseen circumstances, that post did not happen.

Since snow is a pretty rare event here compared to many other places in the U.S., I decided to post a few pictures, just the same. For those of you who might be tired of the white stuff and the aggravation and inconveniences that sometimes come along with it, please indulge me with this short post.

These shots show how it looked in our front yard view on Wednesday morning of last week:

 Here is what things looked like in the back:

There was snow at the Bluebird's residence, as well:
I caught our neighbors, Angela and Leonard, as they ventured out. We have such good neighbors and friends all around us and we love them!
Angela Surely Looks Happy to Have Snow
Leonard is Getting the Cars Ready to Go
The snow seemed to be appreciated by this Cardinal, my favorite winter bird! 

My sweet husband always makes sure all our feathered friends have something to eat, but especially when there is ice or snow on the ground.
 Over at my daughter, Stephanie's, house they were really enjoying the rare occasion when there was enough fluffy and beautiful snow in which to get outside and play.
This is another picture of the girls(Sophie on the left and Rachel on the right) with my sweet daughter and their Mommy, Stephanie.
No, it did not snow for long and it did not snow very much. But, yes, we in the Central Savannah River Area really do enjoy that rare, blissful and beautiful snow day!

How to Make and Use a Stencil Using Cricut Expression

My family and many of my friends know how much I adore French inspired creations and design. The flourish of the curly-cues and curves are so appealing. An image of the Eiffel Tower in any form sets my imagination into high gear. It will come as no surprise to people who know me well that when I feel the desire to get creative, it is often with a French flair. So, when pondering what to make for Joanne, a dear friend of mine, I designed the stenciled pillow covers shown in this post. 
I constructed the pillow cover/shams myself from a twin sized white cotton sheet and embellished the opening edges with black grosgrain ribbon before sewing the side seam together. If you prefer not to sew your own, you can purchase a pair and begin from there. This image could be reduced a little in size and applied to hand towels, etc.

My Cricut Expression was used to make the stencil for the design and the cartridge used was Storybook. The design used was a flower design which is associated with the …

Victory Sports Soccer Season and the Blessings of Friends and Family

This past Saturday marked the beginning of a new soccer season for Victory Sports, the church league in which my daughter, Angela, her husband and their children have been involved for a good many years now. All three children have played sports with this league and/or have assisted in coaching the younger children for basketball and soccer. Angela does all the things that mothers of children who are involved in church or school sports activities do. Up until now, Jimmy, our son-in-law, has been very active in coaching the children for soccer and basketball. This soccer season he, because of complications and side-effects involved with his treatments, has not been able to coach.

Shiloh Baptist Church is a sponsor of Victory Sports and is the place where all the games are played and where children from all around the Aiken area are blessed to be able to participate in the games and activities associated with Victory Sports. Angela, Jimmy and the children are members there and have bee…

Homemade Fresh Chunky Peach Ice Cream

One of the best things about summer is the abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables. Farmer's markets and roadside stands boast baskets of all sorts of beautiful, tempting regional produce. Georgia is called the Peach State but the area where we live in South Carolina grows the most juicy, sweet and delicious peaches you could ever hope to eat. The month of July, particularly around Independence Day is when the best (in my opinion) are ripe and ready to be harvested and sold.

Our family eagerly anticipates the appearance of those beautiful peaches!
There are all sorts of delicious ways to prepare and eat this luscious and delectable fruit. They are simply scrumptious when peeled and sliced like this:
You can add a splash of milk or coconut milk and a little sugar, but it really is not necessary. They are so very sweet and satisfying. Eaten fresh they are quite good for the health. Peaches contain lots of vitamins A and C and minerals, such as potassium. The average peach is said ha…
