Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay

Today’s “Friday Foodie Feature” is being preempted by these images which I captured this morning from my driveway.

As I sat in the car saying my “commuting prayer” I looked up to see a beautiful sun filled sky.  I immediately stopped praying, grabbed the camera from the back seat and snapped three pictures.  It was a few minutes past 8:00 am, and running late as usual I didn’t take time to review them.  The sun was so bright while taking these pictures I couldn’t really see what I had shot.

Everyday when I get to work the first thing I do is read “Our Daily Bread” Devotion of the day.  I hadn’t planned on viewing the pictures until later but when I saw the title of today’s devotion – THE GIFT OF LIGHT, I was filled with chills!

Now if you look at the pictures again you will notice red spots, strategic in their placement which may have come from the glare on the camera lens…

…but take a look at these cell phone pictures that I took last Saturday night as we crossed the Delaware Memorial Bridge a little after 8:00 p.m.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

In my current job I no longer have much of an opportunity to travel and my daily commute from Middletown, DE to West Chester, PA can be quite boring.  Yesterday I had the chance to make a site visit to Marlton, NJ, or as I like to call it, “Exit 4 on the Jersey Turnpike”.  Not to say that driving straight away on the turnpike wasn’t boring because it was, what made it all worthwhile was the location itself.

The building is surrounded with a man made pond that has ducks, a fountain and beautiful flora.  The Atrium is also serene and peaceful with tall palm trees, plants and flowers.  I think coming into this building on a daily would put anyone in the right frame of mind no matter what the traffic was like in getting there.  Here are just a few pictures of the outside, I will post the interior shots tomorrow.

Hello Friends, I hope you had a good day.  

I didn’t make it into work this morning because of a quick moving, yet severe rainstorm that caused me to turn around and head home.  Fortunately the weather improved and it turned into a wonderful sunny afternoon.

I’m still on the Nutrisystem program and eating their meals but that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped cooking dinner for my men.  Last night’s easy breezy meal contained only 4 ingredients that took 40 minutes to prepare.  

They really liked this dish and there was enough leftover for them to have for lunch today.  If you try this recipe let me know, and if you put your own little twist on it, tell me what you used.

Ingredients:
Dry Pasta
Turkey Sausage
Frozen Broccoli
Salad Dressing

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

My normal daily commute into work is 90-minutes, but throw in a gapper delay or a car accident and it can easily turn into 2 hours which was the case this morning.  My ultimate fantasy is to have one of those space cars that George Jetson drove…remember that 1960’s cartoon, The Jetsons?

Life is so unpredictable and I was granted traveling mercies for which I am blessed and truly thankful!
