We have enough. Thanks for the reminder to be thankful for such an amazing Blessing.
love from Deb
She will be joining to live and work in England (Chelsea) in February. I am happy and scared for her.
The Winter has been mild. After a few days of almost Summer like warmth. It is cool, cloudy and rained a little.
We are all in good health. We are living off my unemployment for now. We have enough. Praise The Lord!
with love, Deb
We were at home and Maria came by. We ate and that was it. I hope you all had a more festive time. with love Deb
I am not enjoying these cold days. The whole house is cold. The only warmth is near the fireplace or under the covers in bed. lol We had a few days of beautiful Spring like weather. They were wonderful.
Went to Maria and Yannis apt. It is like a studio size in America. It’s nice. It was Yannis Birthday. I took him cupcakes. Maria later told me that all his family and friends who ate them liked them very much. That made me happy. His were with orange rind to flavor them. I made the same recipe for the church carol service with vanilla flavoring. They were well recieved.
Michael-John did poorly in school and at his English school. He was sad, Taki was mad and I felt disappointed. We will know soon how George did.
Maria and Yannis will leave for England some time in January 2014. I am praying it works out for them.
I am at the store to use the internet. My nose feels frozen so I called Taki to come get me. lol Our laptop has locked me out of the internet here. I did all the things it told me to do to solve the problem and none of it worked. I eventually prayed which is what I should have done in the first place. I then pressed the re-set button on the internet box thing, tried the internet on the laptop again and my prayer was answered. Praise The Lord!!!
Merry Christmas (as in Happy Birthday to Jesus Christ our Saviour) and a happiness, health, faith with family and friends in 2014,
and one more thing, Taki and sometimes Michael-John have been joining me at the dinners that some of the memeber hold after church on Saturday nights. Taki is making friends and enjoying himself.
I tried to get here a few times but didn’t get in.
How are you today?
It snowed for about 5 minutes here today and I giggled the whole time. It tickled me to be see it.
It’s VERY windy and it’s so cold cold it hurts.
Yesterday was very busy and emotional. I was here at the shop for two hours to be online. Taki then dropped me at Virginia’s for Bible Study. I drank two cups of coffee, ate a sesame bread ring and an apple muffin that Virginia had made. It was delicious. We sometimes get distracted but yesterday was a GOOD meeting. We discussed Bible related topics and continued to study the word Grace as it means in the Bible. Then Taki picked me up and we went home. He made lunch and I worked on the clothes. Then Michael-John and I picked Galatea up at the port. We took her to the fresh fruit/vegetable place and then the super market. We left her at her home and went to ours. When it was time for bed I was heading into an anxiety attack. I prayed and prayed and prayed and slept and the attack never came.
Today I have done nothing but online things. I will go home soon.
love and let yourself be loved, Deb
Recipe By: Everyday Food
I’m thinking about trying adding some sweetened condensed milk to this recipe.
1 cup Arborio rice
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
4 3/4 cups whole milk, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup heavy cream
Ground cinnamon, for serving
In a large saucepan, bring rice, sugar, salt, and 4 1/2 cups milk to a boil over medium-high. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 25 minutes. Uncover and cook, stirring constantly, until rice is tender and pudding is creamy, 5 minutes. Stir in vanilla and remaining 1/4 cup milk.
Transfer to a serving dish and press plastic wrap directly on surface to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour (or up to 3 days). To serve, stir in heavy cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.
This is from my group or a group I am in. It was posted by Terry P. another member. After she took it off the heat for the last time she added 1/4 C sweetened canned milk.
I hope you all will like this and try it. I am going to make it too.
love from Deb
The ones you love can hurt you the most. Recently a friend hurt my feelings. It’s OK, it happens. I can’t make her see it my way and I can’t see it her way. So it’s hurts and it will stick with me. Also I found what she did rude.
The kids got a box of shoes and clothes from their Grammy, the boys went nuts with their shoes. George and Michael-John said the shoes are the best “skate shoes” made! Maria is already wearing one oh her shirts.
I saw a bit of the sunset this evening it was lovely.
My last day of work will be Halloween Day. My first day off since being in the hospital in April will be November 1st. I am so excited. I have bulbs and seeds to plant. A house to clean from top to bottom and then paint. Taki will be helping sometime in November. He is keeping the shop open to see how it goes.
I like watching people or people watching. On the way to work this afternoon. M-J and I stopped in Fira to get a souvlaki or gyro with pita. I enjoyed watching the people while we waited for our food. If we had left earlier I would have eaten there so I could continue to “people watch”.
with love, Deb
