"THANK YOU" so much Mary. It is such a beautiful card. I will treasure it always as along with the other cards you have given your readers. I just love visiting Mary. She lives in Canada and she gets all my Snow. Pea does too. I don't know what I'm going to do about those 2. LOL. They keep getting all of my Snow. They know I am joking with them because they both know how bad I would like to have some Snow here in the South. Be sure to go visit Mary when you have time and read some of her writings. February is also Black History Month. She has been sharing with us some African Canadian History with us so far. I have enjoyed reading about her culture and things from Canada. "THANK YOU" again Mary for the beautiful card.
Also, my dear friend Denise@ http://samaritanwomen.blogspot.com/ has given her reader's this beautiful Friendship Banner. Here is what Denise had to say about the Banner.
Friendship Week.......... Anyone of my ladies coming by today .......... This is for you........ Thank you for the many friendships that I have made via the www............................. Take this graphic if you wish and share!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now, I would like for all of my readers to take this banner home with them in honor of Friendship week and pass it along as well. "THANK YOU" so much Denise for this lovely Banner. You are such a dear friend, and I really appreciate your Friendship to me. If you have never been to visit Denise, please go and pay her a visit when you have time. She is always so uplifting and when you leave, you feel as if you have been revived. And, since today is Valentine's Day, I would like to give all of my reader' a little something that me and our youngest daughter made online one night about a week ago. It's nothing fancy and she had a good time helping me with it. I can't even remember the website where we saw this, but I came across it and I was working on it, and my youngest daughter wanted to help me. So, please, take this as my gift to you on this Valentine's Day. Our girls will be having their Valentine's Party at School later today. I'm not sure what time it will be, but more than likely it will be about an hour before School is out. They took their Valentine's to School this morning and will pass them out to all of their friends. Lord help me tonight tho. LOL. They are going to be on a sugar-high for sure. If you hear someone knocking on your door tonight, it might be me. LOL. Just kidding. Also, my dear friend, Anni@ http://hootin--anni.blogspot.com/ has given her readers some beautiful Valentine's Cards. "THANK YOU" so much Anni. I do appreciate it very much.
If you have never been to visit Anni, please take the time to go visit her. Trust me, if you are feeling down and out, you will leave her place all better. She can put a smile on your face no matter how you are feeling. She is such a hoot, so I guess that's why she is called Hootin'Anni. Again, "THANK YOU" so much Anni for the cards.
The School called me yesterday morning around 9:45a.m. and said our oldest daughter was running a little fever. They said it was 100.5. I went and got her and brought her home and checked it again and it was 99.9. I gave her some Ibuprofren and she layed around all afternoon. I fixed her some of my Chamomile Hot Tea, but she didn't drink very much of it. I guess it's not her cup of tea. LOL. She did drink quite a bit of water with some crushed ice in it. She also ate some peanut butter crackers, some saltine crackers, and a biscuit later on. She was wanting to go to Church, so I let her. Her fever was 99.2, so since they were having a Valentine's Party at Church, I decided to let her go. She was really wanting to go, so I couldn't say NO to her since her fever wasn't real high. She is still sleeping and hopefully she will be able to go to School today. She said her throat doesn't hurt, but her nose is stopped up and she has coughed some. I've also been giving her some prescribed cough medicine that she had left from being sick before.
Today is "THANKFUL THURSDAY". It is hosted by Iris@ http://eph2810.com/. Today's topic is about LOVE. I am "THANKFUL" that I have a Savior who died on the cross to save me from my terrible sins. Also, for his undying LOVE HE has for me and HIS forgiveness when I fail him. I am also "THANKFUL" for the wonderful LOVE of my DH and kids. I can be a pain in the butt at times, but I know they still LOVE me. I do LOVE them as well. My DH is my best friend and my one True LOVE. He is just the best thing that has ever happened to me. I am also "THANKFUL" that he has a job and is willing to be away from home, not that he likes it, to provide for us. I am also "THANKFUL" for each and everyone of you that I have come to know since I have been blogging. You all are such great friends and I cherish the Friendship I have with each of you. If you would like to participate in the "THANKFUL THURSDAY", please go visit Iris and sign the Mr. Linky and then post your "THANKFUL THURSDAY". "THANK YOU" Iris for hosting "THANKFUL THURSDAY" and for the topic of being LOVE for today. It is very fitting since this is Valentine's Day.
Today is also Slow Cooking Thursday. It is hosted by my friend Sandra@ http://familycorner.blogspot.com/. If you would like to participate in the Slow Cooking Thursday, please go visit Sandra and let her know, and then post a recipe that has to be cooked in a Slow Cooker. Today, I am going to share with you my Slow Cooking Recipe of White Beans.
Karen's Slow-Cooked White Beans
2-lb. bag of Great Northern Beans (any brand will do)
1/2 chopped red onion
1 pre-packaged of diced ham (if you have real ham slices, this will do also)
Wash your beans thoroughly and pick out the bad ones. Put in Slow Cooker and let soak for a couple of hours. This can be done the night before. Rinse your beans again and put back in your Slow Cooker. Add your 1/2 chopped red onion, and your pre-packaged diced ham all into the Slow Cooker. Add Salt and Pepper to taste. Put on High and let cook all day. By dinner time, you have some good ole Southern White Beans. You can also have you a pan of Buttermilk Cornbread to go with this and some slices of red onion as well. You talk about wanting to slap yo' mammy. ROFLMBO. This will do it. Just a little humor there. My DH doesn't really like his White Beans cooked in the Slow Cooker, so most of the time when I do cook them, I just cook them on top of the stove. But, if I don't feel like standing over the stove all day, I will cook them in the Slow Cooker. So, if you want to participate, please go visit Sandra and let her know. She is always sharing some wonderful recipes with us and she has a Food Blog as well. Go check her out because you might find something you want to cook. Her husband is in the Military as well and they are stationed in Arizona and she shares some beautiful pictures with us of the Sky there in Arizona. I don't think I have ever seen such a bluer Sky than the one's she shares.
Well, guess I'll go for now. I do hope that everyone will have a nice and romantic Valentine's Day with the one you LOVE. I will be alone on this Valentine's Day, as my DH is on the road. Hopefully he will be home sometime Friday morning and we can celebrate our Valentine's Day then. Hey, it's better late than never huh? Take care my friends and have a LOVELY day. May God Bless Each and Everyone of You.
LOVE & HUGS,
