❤ ❤ ❤ ❤The book club went well Wednesday and everyone liked the book, The Rope except for one person. Next months book is the Goldfinch which I'm just about done with and we picked the books for December and January. Both sound like good ones. My Wish List by Gregoire and The Third Hill North of Town by Noah Bly.
Ken picked me up and we went directly to church from there. We started putting together the book of Romans in Spanish which will be sent to Mexico. Here's a row of tables where we worked. There were people of all ages and we had a fun time. My spot is on the right and of course I'm not there because I took the picture. The second woman on left is Bettye who you prayed for. She is doing great!! : )
Didn't get a change to blog yesterday because we were back at church finishing up. We spent the whole day there. We all put together 17,500 books, boxed them up and
they are ready to be shipped.
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤This morning got up my regular time and had my usual walk. It was 50 degrees and cloudy. I walked around town. Saw two men walking dogs and a woman walking who I've seen once or twice before. She walks with ear phones and I think doesn't even see me. : )
I noticed since yesterday morning the soy bean crop has been harvested. Farmer Marvin did quick work.
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤I'm spending the day at home doing stuff that needs to get done around the house!! I'd like to be outside too getting some things done but the it has started raining.
We are going to a BBQ late tomorrow afternoon and I've made a Cucumber Salad to take along.
I've turned these nice three cucumbers, though not from my garden, (Didn't grow any but maybe next year)
into this Sweet-Sour Cucumber Salad.
It is very easy and tasty. Here's the recipe.
Sweet-Sour Cucumber Salad
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 1/3 cup salad oil
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon oregano
- 3 medium to large cucumbers thinly sliced
Cover and refrigerate at least 45 minutes to blend flavors
Makes about 12 servings and about 70 calories
Posting a bit early today. Just took a break. Back to work for me.
Hope your having a tip top day.
happyone : )
A leaf fluttered in through the window this morning,
as if supported by the rays of the sun,
a bird settled on the fire escape,
joy accompanied me as I walked.
