Book Review Time

I'm in LOVE with this book!!!!  It's 198 pages reviews verses from Proverbs in a way that only Patsy Clairmont could.  She breaks it down in a very creative way & always tells alittle story that goes along with the verse.  At the end of the chapter there are little questions that really help you to see how the scripture can affect your life.  It's a GREAT book to use as a daily devotional!!!!

I got the book from which I LOVE!!!  The books they have are wonderful!!!  Go check them won't be sorry!!!!!

On my mind

This week I've had a certain scriptures on my mind........maybe because of the people that have entered into my life & the situations they put me in lately.  So thought I'd share one of them with you.  It's one we all need to remember throughout our day!!1

"There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health"

Caramel Apples

Hoss & I decided the other day that since it's officially Fall it was time to make some caramel apples.  He told me after the week that I had had that I deserved such a great treat!!!!!  He is so smart & is SOOOOOO my favorite dog!!!!!!!

We went to the store & got some of the little caramel square things & melted them on the stove........I thought I would get brave & add some of my homemade vanilla once it melted & I'm SOOOOOO happy I did!!!!! 

We had to use red apples.......DH is a geek & doesn't like the sour ones!!!!!

Once the little squares & vanilla melted I just dunked the apples in the caramel & we were off to the races!!!!

They turned out SUPER GOOD!!!  I think I ate 2 of them in one that bad????
