It's Friday!!!

It's Friday....hip-hip-horray!!!  

First of all....I want to thank everybody for your comments on my "pin"...or "brooch" holder that I showed yesterday!!!   Most of you were in total agreement with how I feel about Ms. Oprah....and it's not just her distaste of brooches that keeps me from watching her show, either!!!  
I have a problem with how she feels about our precious Lord and Savior....and that we can "save" ourselves.  I don't think she reads from the same Bible that I do!!!

Any-who....let's change the subject!!!
Did I already mention how glad I am that 

And....since it's Friday....and I like to share a new recipe that I've came across with y''s the one I found this week....but, it's not just for any old's for 2 of my faves!!!

Do you like cookie dough?
Do you like brownies?
YES and YES, if you're anything like me!!!
You'll never believe what I found....a recipe for COOKIE DOUGH BROWNIES.....oh, yes I did!!!
My tummy growled just looking at the pic (can you see why August hasn't been a good weight loss month for me?!?!?
I found this recipe at Brenda's Canadian Kitchen!!

And...this pic is for my friend, Ms. Dawn.  She's asked me to post a pic of my flags when I change them out for the seasons, but I don't always remember!!  
This one is for all the kiddos and teachers....and all those who work for the school systems....who are back in school!!! 
Happy Friday, Everybody!!!
Hope your weekend is blessed!!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!


  1. LOL I had to laugh about your Oprah comment :-)

    Those cookie dough brownies look good!!!

    Your flag made me smile. Everyday when I sit on the front porch I look at my flag. It is so worn out. I bought a new one (watermelon) but decided I would save it for next summer. Seeing yours made me think I should probably go ahead and hang it up! LOL

    Have a wonderful weekend. I am going to clean the church sanctuary this morning.

    BTW Love the new header you have today!


  2. Hi, I'm here from Java's Follow Friday hop. There I was thinking that this would be a religious blog...and then I saw the recipe. That is SINFUL and SCANDALOUS...and begging to be made!

    Have a nice weekend. Nice to meet you.

  3. stopping over from NFF, and that brownie look dee-lish!

  4. Oh, brownies. I love them. BUT they don't like me. I've reached a point in my life where I have to take all kinds of precautions before I eat chocolate.
    Love you,

  5. Hi, I'm here via FF and so glad! Your blog is beautiful and oh my stars, those brownies are calling my name. :-) I guess I'm your newest follower. Stop by and say hi sometime.

  6. Oh my! Brownies to die for! Yum!!!! And I love your flag - so cheerful and optimistic at the beginning of another school year - full of promises and possibilities. Even though I haven't been in school for a while, I still love that "back-to-school" feeling in the Fall. :)
