BURRRRRRRRR FROM GEORGIA

Good morning on this cold cold morning, our Spring has turned to winter again, it was 29 degrees when I got up at 9 am yeah, the cold front came low, way down to Ocala, FL A friend lives in Bradenton, FL and it was 49 there. I thought winter was over, but.... 
It is nice and warm in here, and we left the water running so water did not freeze, it is 11 o'clock now and almost 45 so warming nicely, will get in the 70's tomorrow, and this will probably be our last cold freeze. I sure hope.
My rose buds look wilted and my banana trees are brown now, ugh, all the early blossoms have ruined.

God has blessed us so much, giving us such a nice home, to keep warm and all the food we can eat, just blesses us over and beyond we could ever want. 

How is your weather? 
How has the lord blessed you this week? 
Share a prayer request with me, I will pray for it.

Keep my friends who are fighting cancer in  your prayers please. Our daughter Vikki, Jennifer, Pat, and Gail.

Strawberries are in in Florida, I love strawberries..Here is a yummy Strawberry Pie recipe

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting counter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 sticks cold butter, cut into small pieces
approximately 4 tbsp ice cold water, plus more as needed
Filling: 
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 (3 oz) package strawberry gelatin
3 tbsp cornstarch
2 pounds fresh strawberries, washed and hulled

To make the crusts:  Combine flour, salt and sugar in the bowl of a food processor and pulse several times to blend. You can also mix the dough by hand. Add the butter to the processor and pulse several times until it resembles coarse crumbs. Alternately, cut in the butter using a pastry blender. Add the ice water 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough comes together and forms a ball.  You may need to add up to 4 additional tablespoons to get your dough to hold together, but be careful not to add too much.  Divide the dough into two equal pieces, flatten into disks, and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill the dough for about an hour. 

Have a wonderful Spring;  I am trying to get back to blogging, be patient with me please.
