Snowy days ahead

This time of month a bowl of delicious warm soup is the best meal along with homemade crusty bread. I have been trying many different recipes and today is Carrot Fennel Soup (Epicurious app ). Smells yummy and is low calorie as well. Since most of us are trying to lose weight this time of year that is a ‘good thing”.

Sewing is still on my ‘to do’ list along with dog walking our new Rhodesian Ridgeback. What was I thinking there !
Exercise, low fat meals; it is all good !

My sewing schedule is listed for this month and some samples of machine embroidery follow along wit 2 new tops
enjoy, stay warm and keep in touch.
Sewing Worksop pattern ‘Japonesque Top’ and knit top is Butterick #5954

A Secret Scrolls message from Rhonda Byrne
Creator of The Secret

From The Secret Daily Teachings
“Give every person more in use value than you take from them in cash value.”
The Science of Getting Rich
Remember this, and never take money from anyone without giving more in use value than the money you are receiving. In people’s lives, this is one of the main causes of lack of money, unsuccessful job experiences, and failed businesses. Give more value than the money you are receiving; in your job, in your business, and in every part of your life.
May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne
