Barbara's Babblings

Well good morning, or guess I should say noon, I have really thinking on somethings here lately, what is truly important to me as I age I see the importance of things other than things. Doing for others, helping others in their time of need, telling them of my Christ that gets me through the toughest times. Yesterday I put up 14 half pint jars and containers of pears. They come out really good, then I made some Chocolate Chip with Walnut cookies, they are so good, and always a hit here, my dear husband really loves them, his favorite were peanut butter cookies, but he is allergic to peanut anything now, go figure at 68 years old he develops allergies. Oh well just a few of the things that go wrong with age. 
Here is inside my freezer you can see some of my goodies I have stored for the winter months. Then next the cookies, yum yum good.

You always need a good glad of Iced tea to wash down those
cookies, lol so of course I had some, with lemon too. Nothing
better than tea, if you were here I would share it with you and
give you some jam to take home too.

Okay tomorrow I will not be posting, I am leaving at 6:00 AM 
going to a ladies Jubilee in Statesboro, GA a couple hours from
here, it is almost in Savannah, going with a dear friend of mine, so I know we will spend hours of sweet fellowship going and coming.
I am excited about going too, been so long since I have been to anything like that, I used to go all the time when In Florida, but here seems I never get the chance. So keep me in your prayers too, for driving mercy, and that I will sop up like a sponge everything taught in these lessons.  

So last but not least, I have a date for my surgery, it will be done September 20th, at Brunswick Regional Hospital, I will have a
complete knee replacement, and will stay a few days, then probably come home and go to rehabilitation daily, that part is still not clear but all the rest is. So my birthday will be over September 1st, and our Golden Anniversary will be past, 10th and then on to becoming a new woman, giggles, yeah new parts consists of becoming a new woman right. Too bad it was not a face lift instead of a knee replacement, I would be much cuter then, lol oh me vanity of vanities right.  So that is it in a nut shell, you have a wonderful weekend and keep me in your prayers, I may not post again til Monday, we will see, be blessed and be a blessing to others.
Lots of love, and prayers.

Hugs ♥ Blessings
