Orangecha Glad It’s Summer!


Earlier I tried a new recipe, planning on sharing it, for this week’s Recipe of the Week.

“Are you going use it?”, you might ask.

Mercy No!   It was one of those recipes where you think it will be good, but when its done and you taste it, you realize you were strongly mistaken.  I’m not even going to give you the name of it, because I don’t want you to take a chance with it. 🙂

However, my dear hubby is in the middle of preparing a blueberry pie as I type.   I will post it as the Recipe of the Week when it is done.  I taste tested the syrup David made (in the pic) and it is yummy!

That is one of the blessing for me to be married to my best friend, he is a great cook. 🙂


Though it feels like summer already to most of us, the official first day of summer is eight days away.  So in honor of the much loved season I’m having a giveaway.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.

  1. One of my favourite things about summer is taking the children strawbeery picking and then making lots of jam.


  2. I’ve been a follower on your blog for a while now and would like to invite you to visit and perhaps follow me back. Sorry I took so long for the invitation
