The Pioneer Woman

I'm sure there is no one on the planet that hasn't heard of this woman by now but just in case I'm posting her web site.  She must be my sister from another mother is all I an say.  She likes living in the country,  cooking,  photography and gardening.  And she loves blogging about all those things.  Check her web site out at http://thepioneerwoman.com

Healthy Smoothie

Here's a great smoothie recipe I found on YouTube by Dr. Oz's daughter so you know it is healthy.  She said her dad called it the "Magic Drink" when she was little.  The one I made this morning just had yogurt and bananas and strawberries and yogurt in it but think I will try her version next.  And if you don't like the things she puts in hers just leave them out and I'm sure they will taste fine.  But it will be healthier if you put them in.
                                Daphne's Superfood Breakfast Smoothie
1/2 cup yogurt, 1 cup fresh fruit, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1 tsp. honey, 1 tsp psyllium husks, 2 Ester-C tablets (broken open), 1 cup Ice.  Blend all together and serve! It's $1.79 per person and has all the nutrients and vitamins you need already in it.  Drink it every morning.  It's good for you!  Kids will love it also!

Flowers and Chocolate--How romantic!

Little boys are so gullible!

My grandson Mark believed me when I told him I could teach him how to call up the Blue Heron that resides on the premises. You can usually find it down at the pond keeping a sharp eye out for it's favorite fish. Bring your binoculars and see this beautiful bird for yourself!

Welcome to our Blog!

We've been busy here at The Gathering Place Retreat Center and have decided it's time to add a blog. This will be a great avenue to share the adventures of life in the country, recipes, pictures of our grounds and the guests who have enjoyed their stay with us and whatever else I happen to have on my mind. It's a new adventure and I am excited about sharing it with you!
Check out our website at www.countrygatheringplace.com for more information about our log home Retreat Center with a Lodge and a Cabin on the grounds which are  located in the middle of 80 acres just south of the Kansas City area. We're also a short distance from the Branson area and the Stockton Lake all located in beautiful Southwest Missouri.
Come join us and let your stress and cares slip away during your stay at our off the beaten path countr y retreat. Here you will find no schedules, no interruptions and no alarm clocks. We trust the combination of friendly people, warm hospitality and peaceful surroundings in a beautiful log home will make your stay with us one you will remember always. Then we will know we are truly a success. We look forward to welcoming you!
