Daddy's getting better and a pic

It was so nice to see my dad him ole self again tonight. I walk in the room and he says "whatcha got for me?"  He snacks in the evening while watching ESPN so I have been bringing him healthy snacks to munch on, his diet allows. So he said " don't want to be here for the weekend..he wants to come home for sure. He's finally up and about going into the bathroom himself and the dizziness is just about all gone. That pneumonia is the devil on people....geesh. They had to change his meds because they weren't co-operating as he says, lol.

Here is a pic of my dad with his working clothes on...he's always doing something in or outside....he's 72 years young. Worked hard all his life and that's what he attributes his age to. Love him to pieces.
Sorry it's so big.



Well my friends, gonna hit the hay sack..getting up early...Ed's on day shift this weekend starting tomorrow....alarm at 3:30...ugh, lol.

Have a great night and thank you all for the healing prayers.

God Bless

*HUGS*
Thank you all for the prayers...they're working!!!!  He may come home today but I think he will be one more day. He's not been out of bed in two days.

Pneumonia along with vertigo possible diabetes. He started feeling better last night.

This is my son and his fiance'  Andrea taken recently at    
my nephews wedding

Last weekend Ed and I took a small road trip not far from here to Cheat Lake, WV. When I saw this in the water I thought now look at that. From a distance it looked like a gorilla but when I got closer...it is a tree stump! It's awesome how natural has a way of making things look like something else.



Well that's all folks....Enjoy this God given Wednesday and be safe wherever you are.

When someone deletes

 I understand when someone deletes another; many reasons could this be and my blog isn't a selling blog or in competition with anyone. I enjoy crafts and seeing all the talent that everyone has and I DO NOT sell anything that I make. There's no way my sewing/crafting that I do would be sale-able . I just do a bit for swaps. So when I am deleted, I understand that someone always has to go and therefore it be me. But that's ok..I still love to post about my family and some recipes or whatever may cross my way and I will continue to follow those who are so talented; for no other reason but enjoying the sites of other bloggers.


Have a great day!!!!

It's all about the Apple

 I'd say that the apple is my most favorite food. Red, Gala, Granny Smith to name a few.  http://www.allaboutapples.com/varieties/ 

Apple Nutrition Facts
• Apples don't have fat, cholesterol or sodium, which may help you maintain heart health and a healthy weight.

• Apples do have lots of fiber - both soluble and insoluble kinds. Fiber may help promote heart health and maintain regularity.

• Apples contain small amounts of potassium, which may promote heart health and help maintain healthy blood pressure.

Spiced Homemade Apple Cider Recipe
Ingredients
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • 1 apple
  • Cinnamon sticks for garnish (optional)
  • 2 tsp whole cloves
  • 1/8 tsp fresh ground nutmeg
  • 1 orange, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 quarts apple cider (ideally fresh)
Directions

To start, carefully stick the cloves into the apple. Then mix the allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove studded apple and apple cider in a pan. Place it on low heat and bring to a simmer. In about 10 minutes, the apple cider will get imbibe the flavors of the spices. Take the pan off the heat and toss away the apple. You could either strain or spoon the spiced cider into mugs and garnish each mug with a cinnamon stick and slice of orange. You will make around a gallon, which comfortably serves 8.
