Gluten free recipe for Flax seed wraps - great for sandwiches

This pic has absolutely nothing to do with the post!!
 It just looks summery, until I can replace it.........lol

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends,

So how are ya??  Having a good
 week I hope.........

Mine has definitely been better, I seem to be
 getting my energy back,  Thank Goodness!

Had a nice restful weekend so am sure that
helped a lot.  Played some cards, watch
a movie, can't even remember the name
of it now............also sewed another porch
cushion,  so 2 down 4 to go now!! and
rested and talked.........a good thing!!

Needed to clear off the table as the kids
were coming over on Sunday,  so needed
to put my sewing machine and paraphenalia
 away...am hoping to get it back out again 
this week or next week,  and do some more.

Had a great time with the kids, some good
things happened for them over the time
we were gone, so it was good to get to
hear about it all................

This week I have Brooklyn 2 days, had her
yesterday then again Wed. our usual day.
Then I have a dear friend who broke her
foot and had to have surgery on it,  so will
probably go spend the day with her on
Friday,  and see if there is anything I can
do for her.

This morning I went to the grocery store
and to the dollar tree, and talked to Dee
for a few minutes,  am suppose to talk to
her again this afternoon after her hubby
goes back to work.........so the rest of
the day today other than doing a simple
din din and on Thursday I plan to just
take it easy and hoping by next week
I will be feeling over the top great!!  lol

Wanted to share this neat recipe my
daughter found online,  think it might
be a Wheat Belly Diet recipe.  So 
since I am trying to eat gluten free she
made these and we made sanwiches
with them,  and they were really quite

Flax Seed Wrap
(makes just one wrap,  so you will have
to adjust the recipe accordingly if you
want to make more than one.) 

3 Tablespoons of ground flaxseed

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon of paprika (don't think we added that)

1 pinch of sea salt

1 tablespoon of melted coconut oil

1 tablespoon of water

1 large egg.

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.  Stir in
oil and water.  Beat in the egg until well
blended.  Spray or grease a glass pie plate.
Pour mixture into pie plate and tilt back
and forth until mixture spread evenly across
the bottom.  Microwave on high for 3 mins.
Remove from pie plate with spatula, flip over
and fill with your choice of ingredients.

They sort of resemble pancakes (lookwise)
 a bit larger tho............and a very nice
replacement for regular bread.

We used Butterball deep fried Turkey
Breast,  lettuce, tomatoes and ranch
dressing!  They were good folks!!

Course, you can put whatever your lil
heart desires in them.


Just got
the ingredients to make them today, so
think I am gonna double this recipe and
cook them,  then try freezing one on a
cookie sheet and storing it in a plastic
bag,  and see how it does,  if so then
you can make a bunch at one time and
just store them in freezer!  I will let you
know how that works out)

I am looking forward to having them again.
Hope you try them and like them yourself.
Wish I had thought to take a pic of hers.
Guess I will come back and add a pic
when I make mine.  lol

Thanks for dropping by...........

Have a great evening with those
 you hold dear.

Love,  Hugs, and 
 Yummy Wrap Sandwich Blessings
to you and yours,

Welcome to Thankful Thursday - July 24, 2014 and part 2 of Summer Table Tops

coffee table pics - summer 2014

 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, 
continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him,
 strengthened in the faith as you were taught,
 and overflowing with thankfulness.
Colossians 2:6&7

Greetings Sweet Friends,

What was your week like?
Hope it was a good one.

I have had better weeks, and then I have had way
 worse weeks too!  We have both been so tired this
 week, and really don't know why.  Maybe it is just
 a let down from our trip.  Feeling much perkier
 today tho, so guess I am coming out of whatever
 it was...............Thank Heavens!
So didn't accomplish too much this week other
than unpacking, and catching up on mail and
 emails and doing the lawn, but thankfully,we left
 the house in good stead, so there really wasn't
 any housework I had to do, other than the usual
straightening up and dishes
Should have been sewing on my porch cushions
but just wasn't in the mood........
so there you go!  lol

Oh yea, almost forgot...........
told you in Tuesday post that I would put the 
rest of the pictures of my summer family room
table tops in today's post since I always put
 some sort of pictures, and they were handy
so decided that would work. 

So.....now on with Thankful Thursday......

I am thankful

for a safe and uneventful trip home
  from North Carolina, and for all the
fun we had while there.

for the discovery of strawberry lemonade
 at a Cracker Barrel in Savannah. Have had
 Raspberry lemonade but never strawberry,
  it was wonderful. I am typically a water
 drinker but when I saw it on the menu just
 had to try it, and so glad I did.............
Will be wanting to visit there again
 before the summer is over and they
 quit serving it!  lol

for seeing my son and lil darling on
Monday morning, Megan just happened
to be working unfortunately, (which is
 not her typical schedule).....so played 
with Brooklyn till nap time, then had a
 quick lunch with Scott before I 
came home.  Nice!

for some Key Lime cookies we bought
(like the ones in my giveaway a month
or so ago) while we were in N.C., and
boy are they good..........um um!!
Got them at Home Goods, same place
I got them here.........lol
They could easily become a fun treat!

for a sweet email from Dee on Monday
morning saying she missed us already.
and to Come back...........lol

for the delicious peaches we picked up
in Ga. on the way home.  Have been
enjoying them for breakfast every morning.

Our lil darling - she was 11 mo. here

that Molly did well why we were away,
as always, and thankful it is because 
of the great care my Sweet SiL Susan 
gives to her.  Thanks Susan!!

That the last 2 days have been sunny,
even tho we got rain later in the day.
We had a lot of gloomy days before
we left on our trip and then the last
3 up in N.C. were like that too, and
the start of our week here was too.
So hap hap happy to see
 Mr. Sunshine..........

Posterized affect
for a cute show put on by some drop by 
young Sandhill cranes early this morning.  
They were playing and jumping and 
fluffing their feathers and picking up 
bread we had fed them and grass
 and tossing it in the air playfully.
Such a delight to watch.

Tweaked from Spring into Summer mantle - 2014


that we were finally able to mow our grass
Wed. evening, as it had been almost 2 weeks.
 and grass grows quickly in Florida in the summer
 especially when it rains every day.
Besides being gone all last week and then all
 the rain this week, that was why it took so
long, because even when the sun was shining
 earlier in the day it was raining every evening
 by the time hubby got home.

 but.......... it looks like a lovely lawn now. 

for some really good things that have happened
 for Scott (our son) to do with his job.  This was
 the Jumping up and down exciting that I was
 talking about a few weeks ago...........and it 
turned out even better than we expected........

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.....

an unexpected and neat visit from 2 young
 ladies that were missionaries, who stopped
 by my house yesterday. I could tell they were
 sooo hot and sweaty, so I invited them to
 come in and cool off and gave them some water,
 we had quite a lovely chat about the things 
of God.  They were really lovely young ladies, 
and I really enjoyed talking with them, and
they were so grateful for the cool respite, 
 so think we were all blessed by our
time together.

Well, there you have it...............

New curtains for the family room and a summer table top

Spring 2013

Morning Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you well and happily
enjoying summer!  Can hardly believe
we are almost out of July, only 8 days
left,  oh my!!  Did that fly by.....

Am all unpacked and just trying to
get my mojo back after being gone
for 9 days, another reason that July
seemed to fly by so fast.......lol

Some of you have asked when I was
gonna get my curtains up???  
Actually the family room ones have
 been up for probably over a month,
but figured I would wait until I got
the dining room done too, which has
been done for a few weeks now too,
but since we were going away and
I already had pics of my playing 
vignettes done, so I did those
 posts instead.

So now.... I can do my curtain post.
I have to say I have really enjoyed
the new look.  After going thru the
pics and all,  I decided to just show
you the family room this week, as my
 dining room table has fabric all over it
 and the sewing machine,  so doesn't
 make for a very nice picture. if you get
 my drift.........so will show you those
next week probably. I am still tweaking
 both rooms,  but had to quit to get
 ready for our trip and then of course,
the trip itself.  lol  So after tomorrow,
I will probably be back at it again.

Here you can see I was trying it out to
 see how we liked it.

When you see them scrunched together
it is hard to tell they look like this.
Not the best pic, I might add,  but
really love the fabric and if you have
been by last week,  you saw this as
a table cloth............lol

The curtains went from this.....more formal look

to this more casual and modern look.
(The lights were on here so it sort of changed
 the color) Still trying to decide if I want to
paint the curtain rods....and what color if I
did..........any ideas??  They would be welcome.
I am thinking I might like to paint the walls
a vanilla color, but not really sure..........

This is the right shade of blue on everything too.

 This shot was taken from the dining room.
Did you notice I was trying the afghan in
different spots.   lol  Some of these pics
were taken at different times.

Decided to throw in a few Spring/Summer table
 top pics as well.  Since I changed a lot of things
around since Spring...........

A lovely book I won a few years ago in a give-
away from Bonnie over at One Designing Woman.

It is called "One Thousand Gifts"
 by Anne Voskamp.  A great read I might add,
the prose is wonderful, and lovely gift for anyone,
and It confirmed what I had already discovered
 by doing my Thankful Thursday post every week.

This shot was taken from the kitchen

Hope you enjoyed your visit,  Happy you came
by and hope you will say hello........

Will show you the rest of the tabletops pics
on Thursday........
