The crepe myrtle outside my front window is a magnet for bees, hummingbirds, and other assorted natural wonders. Today, it's the bees - munching on pollen and collecting it to take home.
There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that says: I can see the fingerprints of God When I look at you I can see the fingerprints of God And I know its true You're a masterpiece That all creation quietly applauds And you're covered with the fingerprints of God

I took the girls and one of their friends to a movie yesterday afternoon...
Ramona & Beezus!
All four of us really enjoyed it - Nicole & her friends burst from the theater door saying it was the best movie they had seen in a long time! Wow, now there's a good review.
I loved John Corbett as the dad, and the loving portrayal of a crazy, fun family. I was very pleased with the way the loveable character of Ramona was translated to screen.
After seeing it, I realized that technology was not really part of this family's lives - Beezus didn't have a cell phone with a texting plan (nor did her friends), there was no computer in the house, no big screen tv & game system in the living room. Refreshing... for once a movie not telling my kids "Everyone else does this all the time!"
Full of lots of laughs and a few tears along the way... I know I'll be picking this one up on DVD!
This month's Self Portrait Challenge theme is The Five Senses. This week, I chose Touch...
When you're gone The pieces of my heart are missing you When you're gone The face I came to know is missing too When you're gone The words I need to hear to always get me through the day and make it ok I miss you
If you have lots of seasonal blueberries right now, this is a yummy recipe to make! I love the molasses in the base, adds a richness to the dough. I think it is a great base dough to use with other varieties - I'm going to try pecan next, I think.
You'll notice I didn't bother with the whole rolling-out-the-dough-then-cutting-and-rolling-more-then-cutting-more which takes sooooo long... I just patted it into my stoneware deep dish baker (lined with parchment paper), cut it into eighths, then baked for 15 minutes. A 9 or 10 inch pie or cake pan would work too.
I also added a confectioner sugar/milk glaze just because I like glazes - yum!
