" Coffee"

Since Myron and I have been eating healthy we have cut out ALL coffee.
To a coffee lover like me, that was a toughy! I found this that Hallelujah Acres recommended.
Honestly it is the BEST coffee substitute I have had!It is available in several different flavors too. NO, It's NOT as good as real coffee,but like Myron said
When you can't drink coffee this is just PRETTY GOOD STUFF !
I'm really glad that it is summer because I never drink as much coffee in the summer so I'm getting used to
not having it all the time but when it is cooler ( like today) and on Sundays, it is nice to have my

Shooting Just for Fun !

On the way home from the wedding rehearsal tonight Beth spotted this little cemetery up on a hill. The sky was so pretty too, so we both jumped at the chance to practice our photography. Here are a few of my shots. We both loved this monument. It was so neat.

Look what the "Brown Truck" brought me today!

Since Myron and I have been eating healthier the last month I have about worn out my little "magic bullet" blender.I love that little
guy and don't want to ruin him with all the nut butter I have been making and our new favorite,"Nut balls". So we decided to get a food processor to do the "big jobs", and chopping all the veggies we are eating. I haven't used it yet but need to make some nut balls tomorrow SO will let you know how it goes.

Old Fashioned Day

Sunday was our annual Old fashioned day at church. It had rained off and on all weekend and even Sunday morning until almost noon. Then it turned off beautiful ! There was baptizing in the pond, petting zoo, horse rides, and a hayride for the children. As always there was more than enough food to go around at the potluck too.

Showers of Blessings !?!?!

This afternoon Sarah, Bridget and I started out for a wedding rehearsal and were a little delayed( in God's wisdom) by a tire problem. We went to Iowa City to get it replaced and while there the guy told Sarah that another tire was REALLY bad and we would NOT make it to our destination with that tire. About 30 minutes later we were on the road and it started raining. THEN it started POURING !!!

We pulled off at the closest exit after having a couple times we couldn't see anything. The whole exit ramp was lined with cars all the way down to the stop sign!
traffic on I-80 almost at a stand still
Calling people to have them check radar online to see how far into the storm we were and how fast it was moving.
(Remember when you just had to wait and see)
Watching the storm

We commented several times how grateful we were to have found out about the other bad tire, instead of finding out the hard way.... Along the side of the road in a storm.
God is SOO GOOD !

BUT THIS ONE .... Oh....It's SOOO GOOD !
Some of you have asked for the recipe so here you go..... ENJOY !
