Working on their recipe pages, we have (from left to right), Diana, Stephanie, Lauren, and Crystal. Both Lauren and Crystal are my downline girls, and both are going to have babies! Lauren in just about a week, and Crystal in August. I'm very careful to NEVER drink the water down there!! ;-)

I hope you are all having a great week, so far. Things are pretty fair around here. Granny is doing well, and we have a doctor's appointment tomorrow with her heart doctor. She's not looking forward to having to go out, and it's supposed to rain all day, so it will be a challenge getting her in and out of the car. I'm sure we'll manage. She's been very confused lately, sometimes she knows us, and sometimes she doesn't. Today, a neighbor that she's been acquainted with since they moved here 50+ years ago stopped by for a visit, and when I asked Granny if she knew her, she replied "I sure do!" When I asked her to tell me her name, she did indeed know who she was, and she probably hasn't seen her in 10 or more years!! Go figure!! All in all, we're all holding up pretty well, counting our blessings, and remaining grateful for the time we get to spend with our beloved family! God is indeed good! I wish many blessings for you and yours today and always! Thanks for stopping by!!!

This is DH giving them their feed. They sure know what those buckets are for, and let me tell ya, they come running when they see them! I stood cautiously back from the feed bunk. Call me crazy, but when I see close to 8,000 pounds of bull coming at a full run toward me, I am smart enough to back off!!

This is one yummy recipe for sugar cookies. They are so tasty, and they stay soft and chewy for a long time. I guess it has to have something to do with the buttermilk, or sour cream, but whatever it is, you should definitely give these a try. You won't be sorry. When our hostess, Stephanie sent me this recipe, I have to admit that I was a bit stumped, because I couldn't find anything for inspiration having to do with sugar cookies, and then it hit me. The punches!! Some of those would pass nicely for sugar cookies shapes, and the rest came together from there. We decorated with glitter, dazzling diamonds, and glass beads, and we sponged the edges with creamy caramel ink for that lightly browned cookie look. I'm so happy for Stephanie, because she got to purchase her Big Shot with this workshop, and she got so much free stuff that you can't even imagine!! It is so awesome to see my gals get to spend their hostess dollars and get all those free stamps!! I LOVE it!!!!
I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend! I'm enjoying my time at home today, back and forth between helping DH clean the basement. (I'm leaving most of that to him though!! *wink*)Thanks for stopping by, and may the good Lord bless and keep you today and always!!
