Hey friends! Good to be back and hope to be more consistent blogging from now on. My grandmother-ing schedule is a little different this semester and will give me more big chunks of time to return to some things I have let go and visit some things I would like to learn and do.
By the way, to my heart's delight we just got back from a delightful trip to the ocean or the "big water" as our granddaughter calls it. I will blog about that soon.
In the last week I have heard two lessons on the same scripture and feel very convicted that God is highlighting something I need to work on and ponder. I have read this verse numerous times in the past but two different people talked this week about examining what it actually means to deny yourself for God.
Matthew 16:24-2624 Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.25 For whoever would save his lifewill lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake wil…
Hey friends! Several people have asked that I share this water kefir recipe lately so here is an updated post about making kefir. Questions are welcome.
Good morning! I just finished a batch of Water Kefir and thought I would share the goodness! You can buy Water Kefir grains at most health food stores in the refrigerated section.
Follow the directions on how to hydrate your grains. It is easy! Recipe and kefir health benefits are listed at the end of this blog post:
It takes 3 days to make a batch of water kefir.
Start with a large glass jar and spring water...
Keep your kefir in the fridge in between batches or just start another batch immediately. Mix 2 cups of water and 2 tab. of sugar well and then put kefir grains in and store in fridge. Use coffee filter on the top so that they can breathe and grow.
Stir the sugar into the spring water and stir until the water looks clear using only a wooden spoon.
Add kefir grains to the sugar water...
Then add organic raisins or apricots.
Hey! Yikes! It's been too long. This grandmother gig is a busy gig but I love it! Blogging has taken a bit of (or a big) backseat to the business of life and just living it. We have been loving on two sweet little grand girls and helping to build the family business.
God is good and our provider and sustainer. I give Him all the praise!
We are about to start a project that I am so excited about. I have always wanted to find, fix up and live in an older home with sweet character and charm. Those kind of houses have been impossible to find in the places we have moved and so it has never happened. They are either not in a part of town we want to live in or they are so expensive that renovation just could not be in the cards financially.
A few weeks ago we found a sweet little victorian house (we are calling it the New Orleans house) that I fell in love with at one step through the door and a view of the staircase. It is smaller than we really need but we are going to make it wo…
