Fremont Trip -Part 3- Sunday

Sunday morning we got ready for our next adventure.
We headed down to Capitola, CA.
Patti and Shari were able to join us. It is a lovely little coastal city.

Becky and I put our feet in the ocean.
We walked around the shops with Patti and Shari.

Aunt Joanie made reservations at the Shadowbrook Resturant
It is built on levels, with stairs and paths leading down.
These paths were beautifully planted with trees and flowers
What about Dennis?

We rode down in a little cable car!
We sat in a corner table with windows all around,
It was a real beautiful view.
I had sand dabs (a white fish) with saffron rice. mmm mmm mmm.

Here we all are sitting in the sun.

Fremon Trip - Part 2- Saturday

We slept in on Saturday,
then went to brunch with Aunt Joanie,
Becky and Davey at the Original Pancake House.
Hung out, around the hotel a while.

Saturday Evening we were at Patti's House!
Enjoying a glass of wine
with BBQ hamburgers and hot dogs, our favorite!
Shari put it all together, with macaroni salad
and those cute tiny dill pickles.

What a great surprise! Brad and EV dropped in to see us!
We had a wonderful evening laughing, reminiscing and watching TV.
Just keeping our bonds tight.
It was great!

Fremont Trip -Part 1- Friday

We arrived in Fremont on Thursday nite. This is Dennis outside on our hotel patio Friday morning.

Very comfortable and relaxing

First up, breakfast with cousins
and Aunt Joanie
at Denny's
That is Greg's daughter, Jessica at the end of the table.

We took a beautiful drive from Fremont thru south San Mateo
and over the mountains to Half Moon Bay.
We saw a junk shop (huge) and some cute little shops and ended up here:
Sam's Chowder House.

The weather was warm, so no chowder for me.
I got the swordfish, served on a potatoe cake, on chard
It was delicious!

The Last Days...

When you hear the expression "The Last Days" what does that bring to your mind?

Many people ask, "The last days of what?"

The Bible uses the expression “last days” to refer to the concluding time period leading up to a divinely appointed execution that marks the end of a system of things.

The Jewish system with its worship built around the temple in Jerusalem experienced its last days from 33 to 70 C.E. What occurred then was pictorial of what would be experienced in a greatly intensified way and on a global scale at a time when all nations would be facing the execution of judgment decreed by God. The present wicked system of things, which extends worldwide, entered its last days in 1914, many alive today will see its complete end in the “great tribulation.”

How do we know we today are living in “the last days”?
The Bible describes events and conditions that mark this significant time period. “The sign” is a composite one made up of many evidences; thus its fulfillment requires that all aspects of the sign be clearly in evidence during one generation. The various aspects of the sign are recorded at Matthew chapters 24, 25, Mark 13, and Luke 21; there are additional details recorded at 2 Timothy 3:1-5,
2 Peter 3:3, 4, and Revelation 6:1-8.

We will be examining the different aspects of the composite sign in our Theocratic Ministry School during the next few weeks. I will post the aspects one at a time on my sidebar every Thursday for any who may be interested. Like the early disciples, many today are keenly interested in where we are in the stream of time.

A Gift From Croatia


Ingredients I have!

Hand written recipe sent from across the sea.

We tried this and it was delicious and easy.
I love using different spice combinations.
We used ground beef, because that's what we had,
However, I'm sure it is better with beef cubes, nice and browned.
May you enjoy this too!

Thanks Daniel and Pam!
