This is one of my Paintings of Roses.

Instead of putting a photo of a Basket of flowers on this Blog – I thought you may like to see one of my “Oil” Paintings of these lovely Roses.  I think they look very pretty.

Now that our Winter is here:     –            it is nice to cook some different kinds of Biscuits (Cookies) and have with a lovely cup of Tea, Coffee, Cocoa or some other hot drink that you prefer for Morning or Afternoon tea.

It is good to share with a friend (or to invite a few friends) to share and taste your new Recipe.

  A casual Morning or Afternoon Tea for about an hour is probably very nice.  

Another thing could be to invite your friends to bring and share Biscuits (Cookies) that they have made, or to bring a new Recipe with them while tasting your latest creation.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Today is the Day that The Lord has made.  Let us Rejoice and be glad in it.

Here is a small Poem that I specially like;

Little One

Little one Sleeping There  –Tender love divine.

Little one sleeping there  – Are you truly mine?

Has God given you to Me?  – Tender love divine.

Has God given you to Me?  – Yes, –  you’re really mine!

I hope you have a lovely Day Today

and

maybe try out the Recipe Above.

Biscuits (Cookies) also make a lovely gift to take to a friend who cannot get out very often.

Flapjack Cookies?

* Just a simple Basket of Flowers today *

With Bougainvillea and some yellow Lantana. 

*

Sometimes you only need a few cuttings of flowers with some leaves from the garden to make a lovely arrangement.

I hope you can find some kind of flower from your garden or maybe purchase some from the shop – to make a special arrangement for your kitchen or lounge room.

It is amazing how flowers can lift the spirit  and we can receive some joy from their perfume also from their presence in our home.

Even one flower or a couple of small cuttings of green leaves in a vase or glass can be very nice.

In the kitchen if you put a sprig of Mint in a glass or other Herb that you specially like somewhere near the sink it is really nice to touch one of their leaves between your fingers and smell their particular perfume.  It can give you a lift in your spirit while washing up…..etc.,  Remember you can also eat one of the leaves off of your special Herb, they are very good for us.

Here is a tasty recipe:     (Have you ever made these)?

The Children will love them *

Flap Jacks: 

6 oz-Butter or Margarine;  6 oz-Demerara Sugar; 8 oz-Rolled Oats; pinch of Salt.

Cream the Butter until soft. Mix together Sugar, Oats & Salt then Stir into the Fat.  Transfer the mixture to greased tin 9” by 12” and spread evenly. Bake for 30 mins. At Reg. 5. or 180 deg.  When cooked leave for a few minutes in the tin, then cut into squares or fingers.

Psalm: 133 verse 1

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

*

We can dwell in unity with each other and share a Flap Jack…….How about that then???????????

Thought you may like a Poem – so here we are:-

Pansy Flower ”

 Hello, I am a Pansy Flower, with a face upon my Petals.

My face is full of colour – Purple, Red and Yellow.

You can see my face if you look quite closely.

My face looks to the sky.

Although I am beautiful I am really quite shy.

I hide among the taller plants, they are so high and lofty.

But I don’t mind a bit, because I’ll never – ever be lonely.

We usually grow in clusters you see, us dearest little ’Pansies’.

Children love to peer at us, they wonder if we can see them.

Yes of course we can.

We see the Sun, we feel the breeze, the lovely refreshing rain.

We love to grow in our little clumps and we cheer you up

if you feel down in the dumps.

I have no arms or legs you know but I have good strong

leggy roots.

So grow me in your garden beds or put me in a pot.

Just remember not to put me somewhere that is really too hot.

Remember I am your little Pansy friend

with a beautiful friendly face.  …

 

*Hope you have a lovely Day Today*
