When I was a little girl, the part on the right hand side of the picture was the city library. The city built a new library, then added on to the old library, and now, we have a beautiful museum! They bring in some really interesting exhibits, and for the last few months, they have been exhibiting a wonderful WWII exhibit.
Something that very few people know about me, is that I am really interested in WWII. I love the movies, the stories, the tanks and trucks, the guns, the music of the era, but especially . . . the heroes! I think the fact that my father and my husbands father both served in the Navy has something to do with my love and admiration for all who served and still serve our country.
I just have to share this great recipe with you! I'm not a coffee drinker, but I like to have something hot to drink in the morning, so I drink Pero, yummy! I'm also not a fan of liquid coffee creamers, so I make my own. It's so good, without all the added, unknown ingredients in it:
Homemade Coffee Creamer
1 - 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups half and half (I used fat free)
1 Tbls. vanilla
Mix together and store in the refrigerator - keeps for two weeks. Use as you would liquid coffee creamer! This is also good to make a cup of hot chocolate really rich and tasty!
I've gotta run, but before I go, I just have to share some cute pictures of Clara with you - she is growing up so fast and getting to be such a big girl! She really has that binki stuff all figured out!!
Oh, I just love that cute little face!!
One last thought on birthdays:
"Because time itself is like a spiral, something special happens on your birthday each year: The same energy that God invested in you at birth is present once again."
