On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Pink Saturday

Pink roses at the grocery store

As usual, I overdid it buying bananas and apples last weekend, so I made banana bread, and banana, apple, oatmeal muffins! Delicious right out of the oven with a cold glass of milk! Making both recipes simultaneously proved to be a little confusing for me. After putting the loaves in the oven, a few minutes later I remembered I had forgotten to add the walnuts! You can't have banana bread without nuts - you just can't! So even though this was a new recipe, I opened the oven and poured in the nuts and stirred them just a tiny bit because they had already begun to bake. The result was just fine and the nuts actually were toasty and that made it good. This particular recipe had you roast the bananas in their peel before putting them in the batter and also browning the butter. It was the Best Ever Banana Bread!

We went to see this movie on Thursday and if you get a chance to see it, I highly recommend it. A good, inspirational, uplifting, clean movie based on the life of a college football player!

Roll up that sleeve, DH.
Flu shots today!

Several months ago, some of us were talking about how much fun it would be to go try our hand at Painting with a Twist. For my birthday, Amy gave me a gift certificate to go. It never seemed to work out to get anybody to go with me, so I finally picked a date and went by myself. As is my habit, I arrived thirty minutes early and asked if I could just come in and wait. The sweet young lady informed me that I was the only one signed up for that time and come on in. What a treat! We enjoyed visiting and she helped this lady who always hated art class because I have no artistic ability. But, here you see what you can do with a little assistance.

I actually hung it in the hall upstairs. Haha!

I agree. And now I have to say I think I am guilty of complaining too much about how quickly this year is going. Next week will be the middle of September. Whine, whine. Our daughter posted the above poster on Facebook and said she showed it to her sons and told them she was going to hang it in their rooms!

A pale pink in the sky this Friday evening.


  1. What a wonderful PINK post! That is a great picture and how often do you ever get a one-on-one with an instructor? Perfect!
    Just wanted to pop in and say I am still among the living. xo Diana

  2. How fun...7 of us went to Painting with a Twist and i've never had so much fun...my daughter in law and 5 grandgirls and myself...we painted a cow and I don't have the nerve to hang mine...hahhhaaa

  3. Pretty in Pink. I did a Painting with a Twist with my daughters and granddaughters. So fun. We did a glass vase of lilacs. I hung in in our bedroom.

  4. I would love to take a painting class some day. I took a Chinese watercolour class once and enjoyed it immensely. Your first painting every is very nice!

  5. I love that painting you did...enjoyed your post ---have a beautiful Saturday friend.

  6. I think it's great to try something you've never done before. I have no artistic ability either when it comes to painting. My grandmother could paint beautifully with watercolors and my mother is also artistic. I think it skipped my generation. Beautiful painting you did. I love the pink roses too. Have a great day.

  7. Your painting is great!! I love it when we let our creative sides come out! Joe and I were just talking this morning about flu shots. It's time. Your pink photos are lovely!! Happy Saturday.

  8. What good looking bread and muffins and I agree, walnuts are a MUST! You did very well on your painting. Happy new week!
