I Toad You So!
This is me after all my Christmas goodies with the family. We had tons of food. My son helped me make the most delicious standing rib roast and dijon-marmalade ham to name a few. Then we had cookies, snacks and my daughter made wonderful truffles and other candies.
Of course with my amazing will power I ate all that I could, fearing there would be nothing left the next day. HA! There was even some left over after I sent everyone home with stuff. And I know it's sinful to waste things, so I couldn't just throw it out.
So here I am.
Now get this. Libbie at The Middlest Sister has a contest going for the best looking cupcake and I'm considering it!! (See her post dated, Monday, Jan. 10th.) Now you know you can't make just ONE cupcake......
I didn't take a picture of what kind of toad this is, so if anyone knows, please tell me. (Taken again at Busch Gardens)
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy....gentleness, self-control (self-restraint.) Galatians 5:22-23
Why, oh why did that word get slipped in there? I guess my angst with it shows how much I need it.
I was born in cajun country. I now live in Florida with my husband Mike. My daughter Shelly, and Dan her husband, live close. My son David and his wife, Melissa, along with my three grandchildren live in Virginia. I love them all and thank God I have been so blessed.
I wrote tips for Focus on the Family "Teen Phases" magazine and have a short story in the "God Encounters" anthology. I have a story in the book, "Fighting Fear; Winning the War at Home When Your Soldier Leaves for Battle".
I once kissed, danced and swam with dolphins, and falcons have landed on my arm. Love my English Golden Retriever. I'm a sucker for chocolate and salsa.
