"Let love and faithfulness never leave you..."

"...bind them about your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart." Proverbs 2:3

This is one of the hottest summers in a while. Did you ever hear "rain by 7, quit by 11"? This is true and we could use some of this rain! ...Can you remember "filling stations" or "service stations"? You sure can fill but there is no service any more!

We always said that Mama wore "rose colored glasses" because she always saw the glass half full. Her family were the smartest and the best and the most important in town. No one could persuade her otherwise.

In this heat I am reminded of our old ice cream freezer and our family favorite, Lemon Ice Cream (not sherbet). Here is the recipe:

6 eggs (I use egg beaters - for safety) 4 cups sugar
1 cup squeezed lemon juice grated lemon rind of 3 lemons
1 quart milk 2 cans Pet milk
Beat all this together and fill to 2 inches from the top of the freezer with more milk as needed. Makes 4 quarts or 1 gallon ice cream. This keeps well in the refrigerator/freezer. Freeze with ice cream salt layered with ice in the freezer.

These past two days are about the same, some nausea and some abdominal pain. I am making it with only the one powerful pain pill at night and none in the day time. I hate to be so dopey in the day time. Our newest "great" has my Daddy's cleft chin ( as do I) . Aren't families wonderful? I praise you, O God, for your goodness and care taking of all of us!
