Blue sky and lots of sunshine...
Yes friends this made the perfect recipe for a lovely walk.
3 egg whites beaten into firm peaks...a pinch of salt...1 tsp. of vanilla flavoring...1/2 cup of granulated sugar...1 cup of chopped nuts...1 cup of choc. chips or butterscotch.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees - beat egg whites until firm...gently fold in the rest of ingredients.
Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, brown paper or aluminum foil. Spoon cookies in mounds onto paper leaving about 2 inches in between each one. Turn oven off and place cookie sheets inside. Close door and do not open for 12 hours or overnight. Next morning flip cookies out onto another cookie sheet and peel paper off . Cookies will harden - store in a closed container.
These are naturally gluten free - hubby really likes them.
Well hope you enjoyed the perfect recipe. Maybe you will share one of yours.
Have a wonderful week.

It allows one to be still...
To reflect on what matters...
To study God's handiwork in nature...
Even with all of its challenges there are many wonderful blessings that come with winter's sojourn.
Hope all of you are enjoying this quiet time of the year.
"...in quietness and trust is your strength." Isaiah 30:15 b (NIV)
Have a blessed week.

When a winter storm is on its way here are some of my necessities.
Something hot to drink...
A warm fire...
and last but not least something good to read.
What are some of your necessities? Would love to know.
P.S. - To those of you who are enjoying summer weather and warm temps...could you send some my way.
Have a lovely week.

New dreams...new hopes...new challenges are all a part of what could be written on this page.
Last January my "perfect word" was hope...it became my focus and what I held onto during my Dad's illness and death. It continued to sustain me as we moved forward to meet the changes that come with losing someone dearly loved.
With the coming of 2018 I believe God's perfect word for me is "new". To explain how I know this is the word for me would be too lengthy to post - so to keep it simple I didn't choose this word it just kept showing up until I knew it was the one!
Funny how God has a wonderful way of letting us know certain things at certain times. Guess we just have to be listening!
What new things may be coming
is yet to be discovered. Looking forward to seeing what will be written on that blank page.
How about all of you ? Is there a "perfect word" you will share? Hope you will - I would so love hearing yours.
Before I sign off will leave you with a scripture that seemed to confirm my "perfect word" for 2018.
"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." Isaiah 43:18-19.(NIV)
Today I received a lovely unexpected gift in the mail. My friend Debra Smith at monniebeanfolkart.blogspot.com surprised me with this ...
We are so glad you stopped to visit. We've just been informed that these are the "Dog Days of Summer". Why would that be...
The garden in June is always a treat. Peonies unfold and dance in the breeze... Irises too! ...
