Extra Day

 February has given us an extra day this year.  There is  time to bake a batch of cookies...

Read a bit...

do some sketching...

and sample a new  recipe. (Blackened Chicken)  

What are you doing with this extra day of February?   Please share!



" The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day.  There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the Lord listened to a man..."  Joshua 10:13b-14 (NIV)


  1. I heard a story once about professors figuring out different events in history and dates. There was one day they could not account for. It didn't add up. They were missing one full day. None of them understood why until a colleague told them about Joshua's prayer and the sun standing still.

  2. I hope to take an extra long walk tomorrow and enjoy the mild temperatures! Enjoy the day!

  3. Have nothing special planned but do like the extra day. I love your sketching!

  4. Nothing special planned. Weather should be nice, we are having a last winter day .... I hope. I like your sketch so much. Enjoy the extra!

  5. Yes, it's strange to have the extra day this month. I've always appreciated the short month of February. Your cookies look Yummy, and I love the sketch you are working on. I have a thing for "bridges." Your chicken looks really good too. And the verse you shared today is so special, thank you.

    Wishing you the most wonderful March days, Debbie.


  6. A day well spent for you. It has rained all day here and there have been jobs to catch up on. Tomorrow is March and I am glad for it. Aren't I a grumbler 😁 best wishes.

  7. Hugs Debbie!
    Those cookies look fantatic.
    Slow going around here.

  8. Looks like you used your extra day well :)

  9. I've had to catch up on all your posts since the beginning of the year! I've been very busy but don't have much to show for it, though. Hard to believe it's March already. I loved seeing your paintings, all the good-looking food, your sweet pup and beautiful landscape. We've had the same crazy weather here in Maryland, too. I have to keep reminding myself I have to wait another month or two before I can plant anything. I want to overhaul my flower beds that have too large or scraggly bushes, so will remove things in March so I can start planting in April.

  10. Glad you found so many good ways to enjoy the extra day. Your cookies look yummy and would be a nice treat with a cup of tea in the afternoon. Enjoy life as we move into March!!

  11. Those cookies look gooooood!!! And as always I love your sketches! I am enjoying a beautiful sunny spring day today.


I love reading your comments. Thanks for leaving one.

Windy & Stormy

 Finally after windy and stormy weather we are enjoying a lovely Sunday of blue skies.  April has certainly delivered several inches of rain...
