grateful today

My grandmother and Simon are both Junebugs.  They turned 6 and 89 last week, so they shared a birthday cake at Sunday lunch at my parents. We partied all day on Sunday because we were also saying Goodbye to our exchange student, Vitara, who began her long journey back to Indonesia yesterday. My grandmother played …

Soy Succotash

We had the most delectable lunch at Moss Mountain Farm this week.  In keeping with our soy-themed day for Bean 2 Blog, the topping for the potato was made with tofu and the succotash served with the pork tenderloin was filled with edamame. I enjoyed the whole meal very much, but my favorite part was, …

Cruisazy Cruise Video

I’ve been back for a few days from our cruise (which we hashtagged #cruisazy), and the kids and Taido are back from camp. We’ve been buried in laundry and are all a wee bit tired, but this video that Whitney made with photos from our cruise is making me smile! I will be watching it …

Thankful for Eagle Creek

I am so thankful for the house on Eagle Creek Road and for the couple that lives there. This year Taido and I have had many discussions about buying a bigger house.  We have even tried raising our house payment on our current house to see if we can afford a bigger house.  We can’t. …

My Cup Overflows

Sometimes I go to church and I am just there.  Some Sundays I soak up little bits and pieces, trying to grasp with my hands the fleeting, holy moments as they pass me by.  And then some precious Sunday mornings are so full that I feel like if Jesus gave me the Holy Spirit to …

Coincidentally

So, when I got home from Canada this summer, I had all these little scraps of paper in my backpack on which I had written the names of books I had seen in various bookstores and wanted to one day read.  This is something I do often, write down a book on a ridiculously small …
