Rhubarb Crisp---tell me what you think.

I would also love to hear if anyone has a SAVORY rhubarb recipe! Or other uses for rhubarb, there must be something better to do with the stuff:)

Thought for the Day

"The possibility of stepping into a higher plane is quite real for everyone. It requires no force or effort or sacrifice. It involves little more than changing our ideas about what is normal."

Deepak Chopra Author and Speaker

I have so many thoughts going through my mind right now, all having to do with moving! My mind can't seem to concentrate on ANYTHING else!

We are going to look at property this weekend. Hope to find a screamin deal!
Hope to move soon, hope to find the "just right place," hope to move on with my life and think about something besides moving. However I need to listen to the quote above. Changing my "idea" will put me in a higher plane. Woo hoo!

P.S. I feel REALLY blessed in my life and am so thankful for a loving Heavenly Father who constantly blesses our live.

Mother's Day

Mothers day was great! Hope you all had a good one too!

Logan brought me some "flowers" he found in the yard on friday and told me "Happy Mother's Day, early."
I will post pictures as soon as my photo-dude gets home from school.
Logan also told me on mothers day "Mom, I will me nice today, and do anything you want me to." You don't know what a HUGE gift that is from Logan!

Tanner drew a beautiful picture of a flower for me, and wrote an amazing note to go with it!

Emerald said she would give me my present on monday (today) I think she may have left it at school? She gave me a big hug!
**Update--Emerald didn't have something at school for me, she needed Miguel to take her to the store and we didn't have time over the weekend. So monday she bought me some cookies I was eyeing at the health food store. They are SO GOOD! Ingredients: butter, flour, evaporated cane juice, nuts! How could they get any better than that?

I am so proud of my kids, they are all so good, and just make my life more meaningful, happy and fun!
Love you guys!

I almost forgot about Miguel! He made me a great breakfast, and cleaned up! He said my mother's day present is in the mail? I have no idea what it could be.
Do you think they can mail chickens and goats?

Crazy Day

This morning I woke up to pounding on my front door. My neighbors house was on fire! Luckily it was only in the attic, and the firefighters got there really quick. They cut out the ceiling in the hallway and were able to get things under control. No big flames, mostly just smoldering. They say the fire was smoldering for days. It could have been so much worse, but has still been quite an ordeal for our neighbors.

Be VERY careful about the insulation you have up in your roof. That is what they are sure started the fire. My neighbors just had insulation blown into their attic about 1 month ago. They put it too close to the fire wall for the furnace! Check yours today!

We also found out today that Tanner has pneumonia!

So Tanner got it in his head that he should build his own longboard, and you know what he did!
He paid for it all himself.
First he ordered the "special" wood that he needed. Then he glued two pieces of wood together, then cut it out etc etc etc.
The finished product turned out great! I told him that he should make and sell them.
He was a little bummed because the drawing he put on the bottom smudged a little when he varnished it. It still looks great, so no worries!
Anyone want to order a longboard?

God is Good!

The last couple of days I have been feeling especially grateful. As I watch a good friend be so abundantly blessed in her life, after MUCH struggling. I am reminded of the great mercies of our Lord and his compassion and love that He has for ALL of us.

God is good! He knows each one of us, and we can know Him as well! He helps us more than any of us realize, He enjoys giving us gifts and blessings!

Be grateful for all that you have!
