yummy food fast

One of our favorite quick lunch/dinners lately has been “chicken wraps”. You just find whatever chicken you have (leftovers, chicken nuggets, pre-cooked buffalo chicken strips are yummy), make sure it’s off the bone. Heat it in the microwave . Then you take a warm flour tortilla, put ranch dressing, lettuce, and the chicken and roll… Continue reading yummy food fast

Linen Storage

I finally tamed the beast…my linen closet. And I will admit to the fact that several times yesterday I opened my organized linen and just stood there admiring it. Sweet order…even if only for a little while. While I was working I remembered one of my favorite organization tips found in one of the many… Continue reading Linen Storage

My First & Best

I said I would share a few thoughts from the retreat I attended a couple of weeks ago, but my good intentions were swallowed up by all-things-ankle-surgery. In fact, where last month I had serious blogger’s block, it seems this month I have tons of things I want to write about or pass along. Today’s… Continue reading My First & Best

You know you have brothers when…

…your mother asks you to get her a screw driver and you say, “flat head?” …you bring your mother a live frog and say, “isn’t he cute?” (yeah, no problem kissing frogs for my little princess). …you come upstairs and calmly tell mommy, “I think I have a bug behind my ear.” then proceed to… Continue reading You know you have brothers when…

And suppose you discover that there is song which the enemy and their sympathizers cannot tolerate or… Continue reading Guarded With Gratitude


Really Yummy Banana Bread

I have been on a quest to find a really good banana bread recipe. I used to have one that called for cooking oil as opposed to butter that was moist and delicious, but I lost it somehow. Well, yesterday I found a similar recipe online. It’s too good not to pass along. Really Moist… Continue reading Really Yummy Banana Bread

Who’s Helping Whom?

I wrote this yesterday… I am sitting in the waiting room of an outpatient surgery center. Jason just left donning his gown, robe, slippers, and fancy hat…no, he would not let me post the picture I took with my camera phone. It occurs to me as I type that in the kindness of God, I… Continue reading Who’s Helping Whom?


Thank you for praying

Everything went well today. We are grateful to God for His kindness to us. We survived the surgery…and the drive home! We thought it funny (?) that the nurse labeled his ankles “yes” and “no” prior to the surgery. Thank you for your prayers on our behalf.


Please Pray For Jason (and me)

Basketball and Jason have a rather toxic relationship. Just three years ago, after tearing his ACL and PCL while playing basketball, Jason had knee surgery. Today, he is having ankle surgery to remove a bone chip, re-attach and tighten ligaments, and something else I can’t remember. How did he injure his ankle? Basketball, of course.… Continue reading Please Pray For Jason (and me)
