First, I am asking for some prayers on behalf of two dear friends.
One is undergoing lung surgery this Friday, the other is recuperating from open heart surgery. If you can squeeze in an extra prayer for my friends' intentions, I would be very grateful. Thanks.
Then, I want to share some blessings I received. I won a kitchen items giveaway from sweet Katie at Katherine's Corner
The cute sign, a gardening magazine, wooden spoons, set of two cotton dish towels and a package of guest towels. Thanks, Katie!
Shannon of A Cozy Place Called Home (formerly Cozy Home Scenes) emailed to say I was the winner of her Progresso Soup giveaway. Thanks, Shannon!
Two yummy new flavors, Light Chicken Pot Pie and Light Potato with Bacon & Cheese, a mug with lid and spoon, water bottle and tote bag. Although enjoying retirement, I love to take day trips and I will be using these. I also have been praying for a part-time job, maybe this is a sign?? :o
Please click on the links to visit these lovely ladies' blogs. Shannon is starting over with a brand new blog, you can read all about it on her first post.
And a sweet ending, I discovered a new way to enjoy the Hildegardplatzchen cookies. This was in my freezer
and resulted in this
An 'autumnal' ice cream sandwich (fastest photo ever as it was melting quicker than I could say autumnal!)
