O Lord, my God, you are very great;"

"you are clothed with splendor and majesty..." Psalm 104:1
Today was a fairly good day, lots going on, several friends came by, art class tonight, so armed with my zofran, I made it through this day. Our art class is having a huge art show September 18-19 and having an economical ("100 for $100) sale which means all the art shown will selling for $100 or less and we will donate 1/4 of all proceeds to flood victims. It should be lots of fun and we are busy painting like crazy so each of us has at least 3-4 paintings to sell. Food is being donated and it should be great.
A friend gave me a wonderful "stress release cookie" recipe. If you feel stressed, you eat one!!! Doesn't this sound like fun!
Linda's Almond Cookies
1 cup butter 3/4 cup sugar 1 egg yolk
1 tsp almond ext 2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt.......
combine first 3 ingredients,(butter, sugar and egg) beat on medium speed until creamy., reduce speed and add remaining ingredients. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten balls to 1/4 inch with a buttered glass bottom, dipped in sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for 7-9 minutes. Cool and remove to rack.
Glaze: 1 1/2 Cup powered sugar, 1 tsp. almond ext. and 4-5 tsp. water. mix well and drizzle on cookie, then add a slice of almond on top of each cookie.
Yes, this does sound like it could relieve any stress you might have! Blessings to each...
