Eating Good and Prayer Garden

Got a call from a new friend, Peggy. We are just getting to know each other. She is in my ladies SS class. We are going to work on the prayer garden at church tomorrow morning. I am so excited. I have been doing this for three years by myself. Now I have someone who loves to garden to do it with....it will make gardening and setting up a wonderful sanctuary for anyone who need to talk with God...I should know...I used it a month ago to cry out to God for over 30 minutes.

I have been trying to eat better....so I have bought a few smoothies in the past few weeks. Well I made a wrong turn going to my counselor yesterday and saw a garden market under a tent on the side of the road. I was so excited....the food is fresh from the farm...I got strawberries (those were very sweet and pretty mushy), blueberries, blackberries, peaches, green beans, new potatoes, onions, garlic, and summer squash.

Well, I went to Target last night and found the cheapest blender I could find....a $9 blender...you get what you pay for...I will have to return it. I struggled for 15 minutes or more trying to remove the cap to insert the stir stick...I know ...pretty pathetic. So dh suggests using hot water to help loosen the middle cap insert (I am thinking hot water ...hmm...how is that going to work) but gave it a try and got slashed with hot water but still had a stuck cap. So what the hey, I used the dumb blender anyway because I was determined to have a smoothie with all the new fruit I bought. I literally had to shake the blender up and down to get the ice and fruit to move around...not exactly your state of the art blender...but it was cheap. OK, don't say it, we all know you usually get what you pay for. Anyway, the smoothie tasted pretty good and this morning I made my dd, who is an extremely picky eater, to eat a banana/peach smoothie and she liked it!!! This is worth the darn $money I spent on the blender....but I am still taking it back
