DaisypathAnniversary Years Ticker



I fell off the blogging wagon and did not complete my idea of a letter a post for OCTOBER...BUT, Hey, it worked out! is starting to turn cold in Mississippi...frost on the pumpkins.

BER - witches and goblins will be visiting my back door requesting candy.

BER - NovemBER is around the corner...with thoughts of Holidays and families.

This week-end alot of company expected...I will post and add pictures as they happen!

Finally...please pray for the upcoming election next week.

"If my people will humble themselves and pray, I will restore their land!"


Here is another O...this is the tower on the way up to our seats at the top of the Alabama University Stadium...Bryant Denny maybe? We rode on a 10 seater golf cart....It was scarier than a ride at the MS STATE FAIR. Talk about nose bleed section.

October - O

Another O in October. As I look around, the O word is ORANGE. The orange pumpkins that are showing up on doorsteps, orange leaves that are popping out on the trees as autumn is here and the orange and brown plaid shirt found on the scarecrows in front yard harvest displays.

But, let me share another orange great. This fall morning, with a nip in the air was just right for Pillsbury Orange Sweet Rolls. If you love warm pastries, fresh from the oven, then try these orange rolls.
OMG (oh my gosh) starts with O also. I finally did it! I have looked and looked at cameras, and have finally bought one. With ORANGE being the word in my mind for the second O in October...I found myself taking pictures of orange items. Here are a few...

More Pictures to come.....


October - T

The first "t" that came into my mind was the cross...I thank God for his son, Jesus, who willingly gave his life that I may have eteranl life. My decision was made when I was 6 years old at Fellowship Baptist Church (later renamed Parkway Baptist Church) in Natchez, MS. Through out the following 5oish years, Jesus has been close to me in all things. I pray that if you don't know HIM, you will email me or ask someone near about HIM.

Another T.....TEAM
I remember one of my sons having a team shirt with that saying on the back. There are some team efforts I find myself in for that motto! Work marriage is a team effort! How often a task would be lighter if the TOGETHER was an intregal part in the activity.
One more written earlier... I am a member of an important team and God is the coach!


October - C

Myspace Glitters Well...what a difference a couple of days make. I am moving from sharing a recipe on the O to thinking about calories for letter the "c" in October. How many calories do I need a day? Visit http://biggestloser to calculate. Charles (another C) and I have started to look at how unhealthy we are and how much we need to lose weight, exercise, and get healthier.

So...I am committing (another C) to working with Charles to determine what we need to eat to lose weight and live a healthier life. I will keep you all posted on the Bowen's Biggest Loser Blog!

I am not sure how I got back to eating without thinking! Does anyone else find themselves at this state. I don't eat because I am hungry! I eat because I'm bored...tired...sad...mad...happy! HA! here goes.

Matthew 19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. My prayer is for God to help me accomplish this!

I love this time of year...autumn! I am going to take a letter of October each post and create a thought for that day.

Oreo Truffles
Fall is in the air...cheese dip, and holiday foods!

My neice, Tammi Dossett, introduced me to Oreo Truffles last Christmas. I have "make truffles" on my Holiday To Do List (Kacy...when you come home from Chicago!). I want to share this O from October with you all!


1 lb Oreo cookies (3 sleeves)
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (using different extracts allows for subtle flavour changes...I've used mint extract, upped to 1 tsp) (optional)
1 lb milk chocolate
1/2 lb white chocolate

  1. Using a food processor, grind cookies to a fine powder.
  2. With a mixer, blend cookie powder, cream cheese and vanilla extract until thoroughly mixed (there should be no white traces of cream cheese).
  3. Roll into small balls and place on wax-lined cookie sheet.
  4. Refrigerate for 45 minutes.
  5. Line two cookie sheets with wax paper.
  6. In double-boiler, melt milk chocolate.
  7. Dip balls and coat thoroughly.
  8. With slotted spoon, lift balls out of chocolate and let excess chocolate drip off.
  9. Place on wax-paper-lined cookie sheet.
  10. In separate double boiler, melt white chocolate.
  11. Using a fork, drizzle white chocolate over balls.
  12. Let cool.
  13. Store in airtight container, in refrigerator.

OK...I want pictures and reports on who makes these and your opinion! Also...if I need to be a taster...;-)

Recipe from Recipezaar I found lots of sites with the recipe, but I liked the comments and suggestions found on this site!
