We don’t eat hot dogs very often, but this recipe looks fun. I’ve never heard of Kool-Aid paint–I’m sure James would love to try this. I found a new blog this week. It has great healthy recipes and health tips. Here’s a good article with 7 Immune Boosters. Good info on the quality of photo […]

Prison stuff~Because I can’t think of a better title

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

I was talking to my friend Gigi today. She moved away at the end of February and her husband was released from prison in March. She said that now that he’s out, people who wanted nothing to do with her while he was incarcerated are calling and wanting to get in touch again. She said […]

Yesterday, James and I planted the garden. We just have a small space so it didn’t take too long. We planted lettuce, onions, green beans, and a tomato as well as basil and mint in a different area. We also have an accidental pumpkin. I found it rotting in the leaves and sprouting so I […]

Joy also in this– that your sufferings, your losses and your persecutions shall make you a platform from which the more vigorously and with greater power you shall witness to Christ Jesus C. H. Spurgeon

The other day, I was listening to friends sharing their plans for the weekend. *Going to the cabin *Going away *Having a cookout *Camping At first I didn’t remember it was Memorial Day Weekend. When I thought about it, I realized that holidays don’t really feel any different around here. There’s no “Daddy’s off for […]

Thank you

I heard this song years ago. The video at the bottom isn’t the original music video, but it’s a good one. Take a minute to listen. I know this song is for veterans and Memorial Day is to remember those who died, but I still say thank you! Thank you to the families of those […]

This looks like it’s right up James’ alley! Ooey gooey putty I think I’m going to have to make this. I have tons of buttons and even some old spools. We gave up margarine years ago and I’ve come to have a distaste for it now! Here’s a great article to explain why butter is […]

I’m not feeling so great

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

You can pray for me if you think of it. For the past 2 weeks, I’ve been completely worn out and weak. I do have seasonal allergies but I don’t know if it’s something else too. I am achey and exhausted. I’m getting sleep, and getting some exercise but I just feel blah! I’m having […]

Thinking out loud

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

I’ve mostly been ignoring these thoughts, but they’re still there. May has been a little difficult for me. When I say difficult, I don’t mean lying in a heap sobbing my eyes out. I also don’t mean that I whine, groan, or give up. I just mean difficult. Last May was such a crazy happy […]
