Time Marches On

Hi there! I hope all is going well. I had a fantastic day yesterday, but it was so very busy. I also have a busy day ahead of me today, so I decided to go ahead and post now!

Food and Nutrition
I made some homemade applesauce! It's a fairly simple recipe, really healthy, and oh so yummy. =]

Homemade Applesauce:
8 apples of your choosing
1 tsp lemon or lime juice
1 tsp cinnamon
5 tsp light brown sugar
First, you peel and core the apples.
Then you add the rest of the ingredients on top, and cook it on low for six hours! So simple.
Note: I used Pink Lady apples because they're my favorite, but they're also very very sweet apples. I didn't really need the 5 whole teaspoons of sugar with them. Just be aware of the sweetness of the apples that you buy!

So today I made my first graphic design picture. I drew the elephant on an online sketchpad, then filled him in with a bunch of different colors to make a picture. It is being developed as I type, so I will pick it up soon and frame it, then post it for you to see soon. =]
Also, my mom and I were able to pretty much finish my elephant mobile! The elephants ended up being so small that we had to glue them together (so they're double sided, I was just going to sew them) and then stitch them by hand! We just couldn't thread the little guys through the machine. 
Sewing by hand really wasn't too hard or time consuming because they all have a little eye poked out, so we just threaded through that.
So now that this step is done, all  have to do is glue them onto my weaving ring and I'm done. I''ll post a final picture as soon as I finish it!
Oh, and I finally found the wall decal that I wanted!
I'm hoping to get this up tomorrow along with my mobile and two pictures. I really hope that it all comes together just as well as I am imagining it. =]

Amos 4:13
For behold, He who forms mountains and creates the wind
And declares to man what are His thoughts,
He who makes dawn into darkness
And treads on the high places of the earth,
The Lord God of hosts is His name.

God is so powerful and so righteous... yet he cares for you and me. This God full of vengeance and holy anger is the same one that is full of love. Wow. What a breathtaking thought.

  1. Yay for elephants! :)

    When I made applesauce the first time, mine was way too sweet too. (And I don't even add sugar...just a little vanilla) The second time I ended up getting half green apples and half red ones. Muuuch better.


I'm so excited to hear what you have to say! Thank you for taking the time to comment on my post! =]
