Colour-in or Draw?

Rose PenInk

Rose -Pen & Ink Drawing – by J.M.R.Larman

The drawing is from one of my Poetry books that is a heading for the poem:

Love -Most Important

Love is the most important thing.

Open your heart let it come in.

Only when you let love into your heart,

can you truly make a fresh start.


I thought it would be nice to have a Pen & Ink Drawing for a change.


Maybe today you could try your hand at drawing or maybe treat yourself to one of those lovely colouring in books that are on the market now.

They are excellent therapy to help quieten our brain down for a while and colour-in something really nice.


If you colour-in something special in one of the books remember you can quite easily put it in a frame to display in your house.  (How about that then)?

Find a Flower?

Roses in Frame

Here is a painting of some Roses.  This is an Oil Painting that I did, not a very large painting but I thought it looks pretty.


Today you may like to look for a flower of some sort – maybe from your garden (not the neighbours) or from one of your pot plants to take inside.

During the Winter months that are now with us here in Australia it is a nice cheerful thing to have a flower of some sort possibly in the kitchen where we have to spend a fair bit of time cooking, eating and fixing up meals, sandwiches or feeding the family or ourselves.


Here is an easy –  Recipe for today:

Sausage Meat Patties.

250g. – Sausage meat; 1-Onion (chopped into small pieces); Pepper & Salt; Dish of Flour; Fry Pan & Oil for Frying – (approx. 2 tbsp oil).

In a bowl  – Mix Sausage meat, Onion, Pepper & Salt to taste.

Wet hands, mould a small handful into a ball, flatten, press into the flour.  Flour each side of your Patty.  Put to one side and continue until all are ready.

Heat Oil in Frying Pan, cook until golden brown on each side.  Approx…..5 minutes each side. 

Eat while hot with Vegetables for a dinner.


Put into a Hamburger Bun with Salad and Sauce.

Isaiah: Chapter 61 verse 3

…..the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness:


That really means I think – that if we sing – we will start to feel better – or, we can put on some nice music – and the heaviness that we feel at any time will start to go away.

Cheese Dreams

Morning Glory with Flwrs

A Lovely Basket of Flowers.

It is very rare that we can put Morning Glory – that lovely purple flower – into our Basket of Flowers because it seems so fragile when you pick it.  However it does look very nice sitting there in the middle of this arrangement.


Today I thought we may like a recipe – so here is one for: –


You will need:

2 Slices – Sandwich Bread. Cheese to cover one Slice. Frying Pan. Oil for frying.

Method:  Put Cheese on one Slice of Bread.  Cover with the next Slice.

Cover the Frying Pan lightly with Oil, when Oil is hot carefully put in your Cheese Dream and fry until GOLDEN BROWN underneath then turn over and brown the next side.

The Cheese will melt and be YUMMY!

If you like – you can sprinkle some mixed herbs on the cheese or  (thyme herb is really good) before cooking or sprinkle some Garlic onto the cheese for a different taste.

This is excellent during the Winter months for breakfast expecially with a boiled, poached or fryed Egg.


The above is taken from my Book:  Carnarvon Favourite Recipes:  it is now an e-Book you can click on the site below to see it.

I hope you have fun trying this simple yet tasty treat for something different for breakfast or even lunch during the cold weather in the coming Winter months.


Here is a  Bible verse: James: Chapter 3 verse 18. says:  Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.


We could try to be a peacemaker today even could share our Cheese Dream.???????????????

Have a Good Day Today – it is good to try something new.
