Morning Has Broken

Morning has broken
Like the first morning,
Black bird has spoken
Like the first bird.
Praise the singing!
Praise for the morning!
Praise for them springing
Fresh from the Word!

Sweet the rain's new fall
Sunlit from heaven,
Like the first dewfall
On the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness
Of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness
Where His feet pass.

Mine is the sunlight!
Mine is the morning.
Born of the one light
Eden saw play!
Praise with elation,
Praise ev'ry morning,
God's recreation
Of the newday!

I've always loved that song - learned it first back in my jr. high school choir group :love:

I made the lemon bars :love: must have been the mild Meyer's lemon juice, lol, they weren't as lemony as I anticipated :shrug: but still yummmmy!

I also "put up" some lemoncello - the zest from the 15 lemons soaking in vodka...in a few weeks I'll add a bunch of sugar and water, then let it sit again until summer - ingredients for Hard Lemonade :w00t:

:giggle: well, I have discovered that all lemons are NOT created equal! :D
Meyers have the most juice... but, even they don't all taste the same.

We were totally out of lemon juice the other night... so had to buy whatever was available :faint: ...so purchased 6 lemons to juice... and they were sorry for sure! :laughing: got the least amount of juice ever... and it reminded me why I NEVER use any recipe that calls for "the juice of one lemon" :rofl: ...there would be no way to predict the outcome of one like that :omg:

Your Hard Lemonade sounds interesting :nod: Bob & I have been trying (just a small shared glass during dinner) some of the "drinks" that are constantly mentioned in our historical (mostly Regency era) romance novels that we listen to while we're working. We've discovered so far... that we like Creme Sherry and Madeira :giggle: ...and have a bottle of Port to try next. Of course those folks drank all kinds of wine because the water wasn't fit to drink :D

I never understood that "juice of one lemon" either!! The tree we had in our yard down in Southern CA often had lemons the size of grapefruit:faint: LOL. sure do miss that tree... it pains me to actually have to buy lemons at the store and to have to remember to do so when I'm making something simple like guacamole when for so many years all I had to do was walk out to the front yard and pick one...I still have plans to plant one in my yard up here, but haven't decided where. With the mild winter we've had I should have already done so as it could have been getting acclimated :shrug: ah well...still can do it :laughing:

The lemoncello will be good - some places (Italy, I think) drink it straight, but I was cheap and bought the least expensive vodka :laughing: so it will most likely have to "go into" regular lemonade...

What a fun thing to do with learning the drinks! I'm a sweet drinker so I love Creme Sherry and Madeira and :drool: Port is wonderful :love: There was a great wine tasting event every year down south which is where I tried these...if you are also a "sweetie" (which I know you are :giggle:) and want a nice wine try any Moscoto variety...Barefoot winery has one that is sparkling for festivities :D SutterHomes is good too and under $5 a bottle!! :w00t:

Bob says to tell you that he likes the SutterHomes Merlot ('cos he can get it in 4 tiny bottles)...but prefers the Ravenswood :iconwineplz: I got to where I couldn't drink ANY wine of any kind... before I figured out that I wasn't having a gall bladder attack...:no: instead I was having gluten overload :omg: So, haven't tried any Merlot yet... but since the Sherry and Madeira seem to work... I'll probably try some of whichever Merlot that Bob has on hand, soon :eager: Glad to hear that Port is good :nod: :hug: (:giggle: yep! I'm a sweetie!! :iconiloveit-plz:)

I've never learned to like red wines...my palette is just uneducated :giggle: I told you in the note, but the sparkling Moscato (very different from Merlot - white for one thing) is by Yellow Tail not Barefoot...

Glad that you got the gall bladder/gluten balance working :blowkiss:
