 In the office I have been enjoying water infused with fresh Summer fruit πŸ’– 

Besides tea I love a good cappacino and our little Italian Restaurant down the street called Amici's makes one of the best cups! πŸ’‹

I was reading this morning and was reminded of the verse in Matthew where it talks about being a good and faithful servant .. 
I never really thought about it this way before but each day we are told "well done good and faithful servant"  but who is this coming from... the evil one would say " well done good and faithful servant" if we were full of gossip or choose to be unkind in our day.
This is not who I choose to serve. Father help me to be aware of who I serve and help me serve you in all I do.

Summer and Apple Crumb Pie go very well together 😊
I never made an Apple Crumb Pie before, I love making Apple Pie but this is the 1st time I made an Apple Crumb Pie.
I had a bag of Gala Apples so I used them in the pie, I don't think they are the best apples to use for pies but they worked pretty well. 

Years ago I had a Tupperware Party and purchased a mat to roll dough out. I love it, it really makes rolling dough easy and clean up is easy easy too. 
So this being my first Apple Crumb Pie I think next time I will do a better job with the crumb topping. I needed to cut up the butter better and mix it to more of a crumble.. my topping came up a little to fine. I need to work on the texture. 😏
I love homemade whipcream, this time though I whipped it a bit to thick. I filled a teacup with the whipcream trying to make it look good.  πŸ˜Š It was not the prettiest pie I ever made but all in all it was yummy.
πŸ’™ God Bless the USA πŸ’™
Verse for today is found in the book of John 1:1-5
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life,and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

πŸ’œMy Niece shared a lovely ice-tea recipe with me and I wanted to share it as well πŸ’•

Brew peach tea strong
Cool and add ice
Stir in equal parts of cool organic apple cider
Squeeze juice from one large fresh orange 
Garnish with orange slices 
Enjoy!πŸ˜€
My Niece testifies it is beautifully yummy and refreshing πŸ’œ

 Proverbs 16:3 is one of those verses in the Word that you can read over and over again and it speaks volumes each time, truly one of my favorite verses, it reads..
"Commit to the Lord whatever you do and he will establish your plans."

God Bless πŸ’–

Beautiful Reminder
Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

πŸ’Tea Pretty πŸ’


My sister gave this lovely lunch and tea set to my mom for her birthday in March, I love it and had to post a photo 😊


 I adore Apple Pie πŸ’š and love marking it because it is truly one of the easiest pies to make, even better if you use ready made refrigerated pie crusts.  Easy, easy easy to make for company and needless to say it is wonderful with a cup of tea. 😍

The Great Wall of China at Skippers Canteen πŸ’–
On Mothers day we went to Disney World with my mom and step dad. πŸ˜€ We had lunch at Skippers Canteen.  In the Canteen they have a wall that they call " The Great Wall of China" πŸ˜„ it is a wall of "china"  How adorable! I snapped a photo of Tony in front of the "Great Wall" 😊



 This lovely set behind the glass was so so so pretty. 
It was a little hard to take the photos because I kept picking up reflections off the glass. I would of loved to have been able to hold this set. 😍

 My dear mom πŸ’•


My mother's favorite China is the Prince Albert pattern, they had a beautiful set on display at the Canteen. I love the butter dish, I had not seen the butter dish in this pattern before
Words of truth from the Word 

John 3:11a

Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but was is good.
Anyone who does what is good is from God.

πŸ’œMy sister set the sweetest tea table this weekend for usπŸ’œ


 It's always a treat to have a cup on tea my sister. She keeps two tea cups with purple flowers on them in her china hutch and these are our special tea cups to use together.πŸ’œ


This weekend was extra special because my Great Niece was visiting too. I don't think cookies and tea ever tasted so good. πŸ’œ My niece had a special tea cup too that my sister has from Canada, it has a lovely kilt design.

 Fresh flowers always adorn my sister's dinning table, no matter the time of year πŸ’œ Her table always looks so pretty.
My lovely Sister and my precious Great Niece

The book of Psalm is one of my most favorites books in the Bible. I wanted to share this passage because it always encourages me.

Psalm 9:1-2 ,7 -11

I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart;

    I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

I will be glad and rejoice in you;
    I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.
The Lord reigns forever;

    he has established his throne for judgment.

He rules the world in righteousness
    and judges the peoples with equity.
The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed,
    a stronghold in times of trouble.
10 
Those who know your name trust in you,
    for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.
11 
Sing the praises of the Lord, enthroned in Zion;

    proclaim among the nations what he has done.

           All Bran Banana Nut Bread 
I will be visiting my sister this weekend she moved into a new house and I am making her some Banana Nut Bread πŸ’œ
The recipe is from that back of an All Bran cereal box 😊
I really love this recipe.  One thing I did substitute though was applesauce for the butter. This is my third time making the recipe and each time I have substituted the butter with applesauce. It usually works πŸ˜€










I didn't have walnuts, only pecans... I didn't want to chance it, so I left out the nuts.
I was looking for a cute baking dish to bake the bread in and I found this set at Tuesday Mornings, I was so happy to find it in blue and white because my sisters dishes are the same shade of blue. When I got home and washed them I noticed the large one had a chip in the corner πŸ˜₯
I made a second loaf for my mother in law Cindy 😘. 
I think next time I will I will not leave out the nuts, the bread was not the same without the nuts. These loaves were not my favorite. If you follow the recipe on the cereal box it comes out great πŸ˜ƒ

πŸ’›Peanut Butter Cookies have to be some of the Best Cookies to have with a hot cup of tea. πŸ’›
Recently my mom has been having some health issues, she found  cutting gluten from her diet really helps her feel better.
I found this Wonderful Peanut Butter Cookie recipe in a gluten free cookbook that my mom had given to me and I have to say the cookies are just as yummy as regular Peanut Butter Cookies 






Sweet verse for today and every day πŸ’›

Nehemiah 8:10

10 Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
