SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
There are times in the year I miss my kids being at home so much.   When school starts, I get a longing to go look for supplies and lunch boxes.   Then when Halloween comes around, I want to make costumes.   There was this one year when they were about 4... I made the cutest lion costumes with a long tail that trailed behind.   I'll never forget.  Life's tradition says that when your kids have kids, grandmas get all the fun back.  I have two grand kitties who do not want to wear the costumes I make for them... smile.

You never know when you might need this
Making slime
Slime
1/2 cup white glue
6 Tbsp. water
food coloring
1-4 Tbsp. water
1-4 tsp. Borax

Mix the glue, 6 tablespoons water and food coloring until it is dissolved. In a separate bowl, dissolve 1 teaspoon borax into 1 tablespoon water. Add to the glue solution. You will get a very thick clump of slime when the two mix. Pull the clump of slime out of the glue mixture and put it in a separate bowl. Mix another batch of the borax solution and add to the remaining glue mixture. Repeat until all the glue mixture is used (about 3-4 times). With clean hands, knead the slime to mix. This will take about 10 minutes and is not very difficult as the slime easily separates between your fingers. If a looser, more slimy texture is desired, knead in a bit more water. The more water you add, the slimier it gets. The slime does not leave a residue and does not get stuck on anything. Store in an airtight container. This can easily be doubled, tripled or quadrupled.

2 Ingredient Cake!
Easy and low on calories! 1 box any cake mix
12 oz. diet 7-up
Combine the cake mix and the 7-up in a bowl and beat (with an electric mixer) until well blended. Bake as directed on box. (I decreased the temp to 325° and decreased the time by 5 minutes.) Cool and frost with Cool Whip or any frosting of your choice.

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan


All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation
http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/prayernation.asp

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
