For Today, Tuesday, June 14th
Looking out my window I see a bright sunny summery day.
I am thinking summer has arrived in all it's heat-stoked sunny brilliance. We are in the upper 90s every day this week.
I am thankful as of Sunday, we only have 87 more days of summer to go. *smile. Seriously, I am thankful for seasons. We can always say, "This, too, shall pass."
One of my favorite things ... an icy sweet tea on a hot day - with a slice of lemon. Hey! I was raised in the South. It's how we roll.
I am wearing white jeans, a black cami, and a black, white and royal blue poncho.
I am creating a couple new pages in my bullet journal. Pondering on how to "pretty it up."
I am hoping to rearrange my stuff in my work office to look more stream-lined and clutter free...
I am learning how easily distracted I am!
In my kitchen tonight will be a simple meal of spaghetti, garlic bread and corn for the family, as I am headed out to a Ladies' dessert fellowship at My Daddy's Cheesecake!
I mentioned last week about making Garlic-Cheese Chicken for my daughter. Once again, I got so involved in dinner prep that I took no pictures. Please use your imagination as I tell you how to prepare this simple dish:
Garlic Cheese Chicken
Approx. 9 boneless skinless chicken breast tenderloins
3 T Olive Oil
1 C buttermilk
1 packet of cheese mix from a package of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese
1 tsp. garlic powder
- Heat olive oil in skillet, then add chicken and brown on both sides.
- Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix buttermilk, cheese packet and garlic powder together.
- Once chicken is browned, drain, and then pour buttermilk mixture over chicken and put on lid.
- Turn chicken over a couple times as you let the mixture simmer for approx. 10 minutes.
- Serve with sauce spooned over chicken.
Here is a new blog I started following: Joanne Viola's Days and Thoughts. Love this article: Zeal without Burnout.

A moment from my day
Yesterday flew by and so I never actually finished my daybook post until today.
Last week, we saw three great answers to prayer among the believers in my fellowship - two surgeries turned out amazingly well and a 92 year old brother to our sweet Sister June finally gave his heart to the Lord!
Throughout this week, I want to continue in an attitude of prayer - the needs are so very great. I also want to be in attitude of praise because God is even greater.
How marvelous the thought that He loves us and cares about our every need!
