Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins

Tuesday, February 19th, 2008

I saw these muffins at Saralyn’s blog this weekend and thought they sounded so yummy. We tried them and they were definitely very good. I did use sucanat as she  suggested because I had some to use up. I also filled the tins 1/2 way,  added about 1 tsp. of all fruit jam, then a […]

This and That

Tuesday, February 19th, 2008

I have been busy trying to get some areas of my house cleaned up. James’ bedroom for one! How can a child hide so many little pieces of junk in such a small space? I need to get the next few weeks of school scheduled too. At Christmas time, I sat down and did 6 […]

Sunday, February 17th, 2008

My husband picked up this book in the prison chapel. He has been reading it this week. He read some portions of it to me over the phone. He’s excited about the things he read and of course that makes me excited! He said he originally picked it up because he wanted to find things […]

We were one of “those” couples last week

Maintaining a “normal” marriage relationship in the midst of an incarceration is next to impossible. Aside from the horrendous stresses incarceration provides–loss of provider, legal bills, no control of your life–the absolute lack of privacy ranks up there as one of the hardest things to deal with. Any marriage relationship must be worked at to […]

Mailing my Valentine

Tuesday, February 12th, 2008

I wrote out a Valentine to mail to Lee yesterday. I wanted to be sure to pop it in the mail on time. As I wrote, I was struck by the fact that writing a love note to him was so easy. I shared awhile ago about the Valentine’s day when I couldn’t even write […]
