March coming to a close

Published March 30, 2015 by emmaperez1961

April showers and spring flowers. That’s all I can think about. And luckily the weather is co-operating. It’s a beautiful day and I’m hoping for more to come. Although, I never look forward to Good Friday. Which will be the 1st week of April this year. For me theirs nothing good about it. I’m practically in mourning that day. For that’s the day they sacrificed my Lord. An Event that has been printed in my heart for years.
I know, I know! I should be happy for the freedom we all received from that sacrifice. But I’m not truly happy until Easter Sunday. For that’s the day my Lord rose from dead and unto Glory.
I also see this time of year as Christmas and the NewYear rolled into one. I look back at the year and see how the lord blessed me. And what things came about during that year. And I have to say I’m often pleased for my years get better and better.
Now when it comes to baking you can only whisk together frosting for as long as your hands let you. And you realize you need help. For so many years I had been wanting a KitchenAid mixer for as long as I can remember. But they were always so expensive and I just couldn’t afford it. But this year, I cried out and said ‘I just can’t do this any more’. It was just getting harder and harder to mix so many things and often scared I would break my hand mixer.
So this year I was so determined to spend my whole income taxs return if I had to on buying a mixer. All I kept saying ‘I’m getting one regardless of the cost’. I just didn’t care. And lo and behold After my return I bought one at such a reasonable prize on and a cookiepress as well.
Now mixing batters and frosting together and throwing them in the oven is a breeze. And I’m always thankful to my Lord for hearing my small cry.wpid-img_20150325_125817158.jpg


So much for March

I spent more time this month thinking on organizing and how to catch up than anything else. But my main goal for this month was to make raspberry cookies and muffins, which I did.
With work being busy, keeping up with the apartment with the boys (My son’s and husband), taking care of the grandchildren a day and half out the week, it’s hard to get to the things I want to do. I just tell myself. I just have to find the time and fit it in somehow.
I have made it a habit to take an hour nap every now and then when my body needs it. Theirs just to much to do and I become overwhelmed even with myself. The nap energizes me and I can continue with my tasks at hand.
Like now it’s quiet and I have this time to write this post. At 2, I have to start getting ready for work tonight. Only 4 hrs. Thank God! And hopefully I can come home and catch up on some reading before bed.
As April approaches I’m already thinking on other projects that I want to get underway especially before Easter. But we’ll see what happens.
So, for the most part I’m still here and still trying to make things work.
And I just have to say that it has been a joy to read and see fellow wordpress bloggers and the their dedication to follow threw at their craft and how far they have come. And that truly inspires me. That I too can get there also.
So Thank You fellow bloggers for not giving up!!!
Although it doesn’t look like spring yet, I hope you enjoy my spring flower cookies. wpid-img_20150323_135107375.jpg
