Hi friends! As I am sitting on my window bench soaking up my coffee I am watching fog roll off the hills around my house. What are you doing this morning? I know my morning sounds lazy (and probably lovely) to many of you. It would to me too. In fact I would probably be thinking ” That’s nice for her :p ” and clicking the little red x to make this page go away. However, hear me out. First of all I assure you: I have been up for hours. These few moments to blog and sip my coffee are rare and cherished. So here is my wish for each of you today : Be blessed my friends. I hope each of you finds a few moments to recharge however that happens best for you. I pray that each of you who read this page today can find the strength to carry on in whatever you are dealing with right now.
I feel like today calls for something a little lighthearted. SOOOOO I am going to give you 3 things: A fall recipe I love, a couple of my favorite quotes and an open invitation to comment and tell me something (what you want to read here on my soapbox, how you are feeling today, what you are doing today, prayer requests whatever…) and I PROMISE I will read and respond to EVERY. SINGLE. post 🙂 I am giving you the gift of time with #3 🙂
#1 : A favorite Fall recipe
Crockpot Fall Cider
1 bottle fresh pressed apple juice
1/2 bottle orange juice
1/4 bottle cranberry juice
4-6 cinnamon sticks
3 T. ground ginger
3T. vanilla extract
sliced oranges, and apples – enough to fill the top layer of the crock. ( I slice the apples in rounds because the star shape in the center is prettier)
Combine all ingredients and turn on crock pot on low. Cider is ready to serve ( or in my case devour all by myself before anyone arrives) as soon as it is hot- HOWEVER, that said it is much better after a few hours. I begin my crockpot by noon to serve in the evening. – Enjoy! It’s such a simple recipe but it has gotten rave reviews at functions.
#2 a few Favorites
Ok those are just a few. I am kindof a “quotesaholic”. It was HARD to choose just a few favorites to share here today. I love these little bits of wisdom. I love pretty much the entire book of Proverbs in the Bible for that reason 😉
I have no penny for your thoughts, but, a prayer for each of you today.
