Today has been a day The Lord has made and I have been blessed in it, have rejoiced in it and am grateful for it.
I watched a television program tonight about how some people can live way beyond 90 years and still be in good shape and that kind of appealed to me since I am already 76.
The day being Sunday I am sure I have over eaten and will pay for it when I get on the scale in the morning. I always seem to over indulge on week ends.
We found this natural flour milled by a privately-owned grinding operation and it is not bromated or bleached or anything and we are going to try to make biscuits with it tomorrow.
I will let you all know how that turned out.
I do love a good buttermilk biscuit with a little country ham.
It rained a good steady rain here today and I would say it is good for the corn except for the fact I think the corn-growing season is pretty much coming to an end right now.
We were lucky enough to find some really good corn straight from the farmers’ field this year and I thought that was a real blessing.
I found a new way to make corn on the cob in the microwave oven:
Wrap two ears of corn that has been cleaned of all the hairs and the husk in two wet paper towels and microwave them for 6 minutes total at high temperature (1200-degree oven required) – – and that is 3 minutes per ear for a total of 6 minutes for two ears – – – and two is about all I would recommend cooking at once with this method.
Be careful when unwrapping the cooked ears of corn because they will be hot enough to burn you when they first come out of the microwave. I always let mine set for a couple of minutes myself before unwrapping them.

My golly, folks . . . I have let the time get away from me and it is midnight already.
So I guess I will hit the sack for now and if things go alright I will be back on here tomorrow with more stuff.
Until then, May each of you wonderful friends be blessed abundantly with every possible good blessing and have a really wonderful rest of the night.
Sincerely your friend,
