Thankful Thursday

Today, I am exceptionally thankful for

1. A car! We have one and share it between the two of us. And I am ever so grateful that we don't have to walk everywhere. I'm even more grateful for all those wonderful people that drive me places like CBS, Bible Study, and random days out.

2. Snow. I know most of you out there are anti-winter, but I must say, given the choice to play in the snow or play in the slush, or even the barren brown winter grass, I'll choose snow hands down every time. I love the stuff, maybe because it reminds me that my sins have been washed away, or maybe because it's like sand but without the uncomfortable grit.

3. Coffee. I don't need it, but I definitely am thankful for not only the beverage, but the conversations that it allows. How many times have I been able to sit with my mom and talk about real stuff over coffee? I can't even count.

4. The USPS! I love mail! And I am thankful that I can put things in a box and they will be delivered. What would life be like if I had to hand deliver all my packages? I'd be spending a LOT of time on the road.

What are you Thankful for this Thursday?

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together.

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
