A nice Sunday

I started the day peeling potatoes; that way I had one thing done toward dinner before I went to Church.  The roast in the crockpot required no attention.  We went to early service, like always.  That gets us home shortly after 9, and gives me plenty of time to make rolls and get all the other stuff cooked.  Dessert was a pineapple upside-down cake I made yesterday evening.

The usual guests assembled:  My daughter's family, minus Brett, but with a friend of Monica's here to fill in for him; and our motorcycle buddies... Cliff's sister and her husband.

Monica's little friend is reputed to be a picky eater, but she made three rounds at the glazed carrots and green beans in my buffet server.

How do you like my new roaster?  It's my Christmas gift from Cliff.  I wanted it so I'd be able to cook a turkey or ham in there, which would leave my oven free for other things, when I'm cooking for a crowd.  The buffet server is a bonus, and I like it!  It keeps your food warm for you, just like buffets in restaurants.  This was the first time I used it.

How am I doing on my New Year's resolutions on the eighth day of January? 

1.  So far I'm losing weight... slowly

2.  I've kept up with my daily Bible reading

3.  I've played my guitar and sung at least one song every day except yesterday; I simply forgot to do it!

4.  I've ridden my horse twice this year; my goal was to ride him at least once a week, even in winter.  So far, so good.

Now I'm off to sing my song.

the roaster looks great!

What a wonderful Sunday dinner.

WTG for keeping your resolutions so far this year for the most part. The daily Bible reading is the one most important thing in my opinion. I'm pretty good about doing it daily too

enjoy your week ahead

Oh, I want the roaster!  It is too cool!!!

I wish we lived closer. I would ride your horse for you, once my incision has healed.  The girls are so horse crazy. I wish we could afford boarding, but around here it is around three hundred a month to board. They just started horse vaulting, though, so they can be around horses once a week.

Oh I like your new roaster crock pot thingie!!!!  Dinner sounded good.  I hate I missed that one.  Might have driven over if I'd known about it.

Congrats on your new years resolutions success so far.  Especially the Bible reading part.  We had a sermon on meditating yesterday and it was very good.  It really was more like "being still and knowing that God was God" and having a Devo with God.  We learned how to release our troubles to him palms down and receive his blessings, palms up.  The palms have no significance other than to remind us what to do.  LOL.  I have said that I will meditate 3 times a week.  I think I will do that right now.  It was very interesting, this sermon, and it helps us to "inwardly communicate" with God.  It was not anything weird, just helping us to focus and pray and have quiet time and "think".  One way was pretending that Jesus was there with you and Him asking, "what can I do for you today" and then pretending that He asks us "what will you do for me today".  Isn't that nice?  I wanted to share that with you  b/c I figured you might try it during your Bible study time.
