Terdy Table

This is what I woke up to this morning...

at least my hubby got rid of the evidence...

I thought dogs don't poop where they sleep?

The joys of grand-dog-sitting Baby Oskar...

Sunday Afternoon At The Movies

This week's movie,Sophie Scholl-Die letzten Tage , The Last Days Of Sophie Scholl,is the true story about the German heroine Sophie Scholl.She was a brave young woman, wise beyond her years and had a pure faith in God. The movie stayed with me long after I saw it.

Sunday Afternoon At The Movies

Les Choristes..a true gem of a movie.

Directed by Christophe Barratier, the movie is set in 1949 and tells the tale of Clement Mathieu, a music professor who comes to work at a dismal a boarding school for the rehabilitation of minors.Through music, he is able to give hope to the boys,the adults and himself.It is an uplifting movie, worthy of a tear or two.

I Dreamed a Dream

Im sure you've hear about Susan Boyle, but if not click the video below and also check out the link I have for Youtube below that....

She's a lovely woman. Never been kissed. Gave up her dream of singing to care for her sick mother when she was younger.As Churchill said..never,never,ever give up..

Sunday Afternoon at the Movies

“I am the resurrection and life; whoever believes in me even if he dies will live, and every one who lives and believes in me will never die” (Jn 11:23-25)

You know that special feeling inside your heart when you feel His presence?
You know that feeling- when its warm and full and perfect.
Sr Helena would have told me it was the Holy Ghost..and it is.

It is a unique God feeling.For me,it only comes on when I am thinking of Him.

It doesn't happen every time I pray or think of Him.

It's like the smell of fresh rain- only better.

You have to work on it, to get that God feeling.
It is unexpected.
It is infrequent.
It is The Best.
Sometimes it comes, sometimes it doesn't.
But when it does..
a sneak peak-from Him.

The movie GODSPELL is an easy way for me to get me that special God feeling-like riding a bike with training wheels- you can ride fast and free with those training wheels.

Godspell gets me every time.
I know it wasn't a huge hit- but it should have been.
I remember going out to the theater on opening day so I could see it. The cast: Victor Garber as Jesus Christ David Haskell as Judas / John Jerry Sroka as Jerry Lynne Thigpen as Lynne Katie Hanley as Katie Robin Lamont as Robin Merre.
What movie does IT for you?

It's so comforting to know that we will be with Him and all those we love but have passed, when we die..in Heaven..forever.

Happy,Happy Easter.

I cringe when I see people making the microwave kind.

Do you know whats in that stuff???
The list is VERY long and VERY scientific sounding.

My favorite brand for homemade popcorn is Paul Newman's.

Here's the list of ingredients for my popcorn:

popcorn kernels
olive oil
kosher salt

Grandgirl was over again last weekend and wanted popcorn.
So we made our own, of course...

Get a pot and lid- this is my popcorn pot

Coat the pan with a thin layer of olive oil.Cover the bottom with one layer of kernels.

Sprinkle the layer with Kosher salt and don't forget to put the lid on when you're done!

Sit and wait. Don't go near the fire.

Kass puts the stove on HIGH and does the shaking..




And LISTEN...when the kernels are popping up a storm- immediatley turn off the stove, stop the shaking and wait...
