Cynthia is on my blogroll and I haven't been by to visit her lately. Yesterday I was visiting Dawn@ http://grandmaofthree.blogspot.com/ and Dawn was telling us about Cynthia's daughter missing. Here is some information about Cynthia's Daughter, Ladybug.
Margarita "Magui" Martinez 4-19-1994Missing: 3-10-2008
If anyone in the Southern California, El Centro/El Cajon/San Diego area see this young girl please contact your local police department.I know this is a large area and many young girls this age look alike. So please take a good look at her picture. She was last seen Sunday evening. And we believe she may be headed to the San Diego area with a hispanic male. Please pray for her safe return. I will keep everyone posted. Due to her RP, if outdoors, she will be wearing sunglasses. She has photophobia. She also has nighblindness and tunnel vision.
Cynthia is a wonderful Mother and has 8 Children. She is a very wonderful writer as well. I know most of us don't live near Cynthia, but we can all pull together and pray for Cynthia and her daughter, Ladybug. I would so appreciate it if you would take some time and go visit Cynthia and leave her some words of encouragement. THIS IS A MOTHER'S WORSE NIGHTMARE COME TRUE!!!! I can't even begin to fathom what she is going thru right now, but all I can do is pray for her and give Cynthia my support and letting others know about her missing daughter. I would really appreciate it and I know Cynthia would too.
Now for my daily weather report. It is currently 56 degrees with a windchill of 53 degrees. The winds are out of the Southwest at 13mph. Yesterday was such a beautiful day. It made it up to 72 degrees yesterday afternoon. It was really nice outside. I even had to turn my A/C on yesterday around noon. LOL. One day I'm freezing and the next day I'm burning up. LOL. Today is suppose to be another nice day with the high in the 70's as well. It is suppose to turn cold again next week with highs in the 40's. Tomorrow they are still calling for rain and they have upped the percentage to a 90 percent chance of rain.
Yesterday evening while the girls were waiting on the Chuch bus to come pick them up for Church, I was talking to my next door neighbor. Since I knew they are calling for rain tomorrow, I asked him if he would help me start moving today and he said he would. He said he had some friends that lives behind him and they would start this afternoon moving some of the heavy things for us. He has a doctor's appointment this morning, but as soon as he gets back from that, hopefully we can get alot of the heavy things moved before tomorrow.
I felt better yesterday than I did on Tuesday. My eyes aren't watering and matting up as much as they were either. I am still sneezing some, but other than that, I am feeling better. "THANK YOU" all so much for the prayers for me. I do appreciate them very much.
I have some more Awards I would like to acknowledge. Mary@ http://maryswritingnook.blogspot.com/ Awarded all of her reader's the other day with the Friendship Ties Award. Mary also sent me this Award. "THANK YOU" so very much Mary for thinking of me and giving me these Awards. I do appreciate each and everyone of them. If you have never been
Since this is Thursday, it's time for another Slow Cooking Thursday recipe. It is hosted by Sandra@ http://familycorner.blogspot.com/. If you would like to participate in Slow Cooking Thursday, go and visit Sandra and sign the Mr. Linky and then post your recipe for a Slow Cooker on your blog. Today is a little different than other normal Thursday Slow Cooking Recipes. We have to post our best Slow Cooker Recipe and then one lucky winner will win this. Isn't that just awesome. I would so love to win this new Slow Cooker. I do need a larger Slow Cooker myself. So, I am going to do my best here for my best Slow Cooker Recipe. I think I will do my DH'S Hobo Stew. Now since he does his out on the grill and uses alot more things with his, I will cut down the recipe some for my recipe. Take 2 pounds of Ground Chuck and boil it first. After it has boiled, be sure to drain it and rinse it off real good. Put the Ground Chuck into your Slow Cooker. Next, take 1 Red Onion and slice it into thin slices. Take a few Celery Sticks and cut them up. Take a Green Bell Pepper and a Red Bell Pepper and slice them up thinly. Add about 10 Red Potatoes.(They don't need to be the large ones, just the smaller ones). Add about 4 cloves of Garlic that you cut up real fine. Add a package of Baby Carrots. You can either leave them whole, or slice them up as well. After you have cut up all your vegetables, put them in the Slow Cooker. Add some salt, pepper, Worchestire Sauce and about 1 stick of butter. Also, add some small portions of corn on the cob. You can either use the frozen kind or if you have some from your garden, you can use that as well. Add 1 can of Chicken Broth and 1 can of Beef Broth and some water if needed. Put the lid on your Slow Cooker and let it cook all night long on slow. By dinner time the next night, you should have a wonderful tasting meal. This recipe may require a larger Slow Cooker, but you can always add or cut down on the things to add. So there my friends is my hopefully award winning recipe.
