Thankful Thursday!

I don't even know if I could tell you how thankful I am that today is Thursday.  The day did start out just a little rough, but we coffee'd through that.  I am so glad that I get to share some lovely things with you that I am super thankful for. 

1. Sunday is my birthday!!!  34 years ago Sunday, my Momma bore me from her womb.  I am so thankful that God used her to deliver me into this world and that she and my father, cared for me and taught me and set me free to unleash my craziness self on the world.

2. With that in mind I am thankful for early birthday presents!!!!!! Which will make up the rest of my Thankful Thursday list...

A.   A membership to The Detroit Institute of Art.  I am looking forward to wandering around and taking in all  the beautiful arts and maybe even catching a film or two!

B. A gift card to amazon.com where I purchased not only Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs from Video On Demand that we've been watching on the Roku, but also a subscription to Midwest Living, some music, and some sundries for the kitchen. 


C. Finally a fore mentioned music has a song that I have wanted for ages!  It's from the movie Shag and I love the scene on the dock and have wanted the tune from it for the longest time, but it's not on the soundtrack and then the movie was bought from Doubletree by MGM and the music was changed in it.  Which was so terribly disappointing, but alas, I have the song and it will be shipped to me in a matter of days! (If you happen to read the reviews of this movie, you will see, that most everyone is upset by this soundtrack change)

3.  I wanted to let you all know that I am terribly thankful for all of you, my blog readers!  I really enjoy writing for you.  If there is ever anything that you have a question about or that you would like for me to write about, please don't hesitate to leave a comment or drop me an email sometime.

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.

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#

James Week 10 James 5: 13-20

We finish up our study on James with some encouraging words about prayer and standing in the gap. Study Questions Week 10 When you don't feel like yourself, what is generally your first response? Do you start with prayer, rest, food, lashing out at others?  When you encounter others that are not acting like themselves what is your initial thought? How do you think your relationships would be different if you began those interactions with prayers? Prayers for understanding for yourself and peace for the other person? When you are happy, do you ever try to keep it to yourself because you don't want to celebrate while others around you are struggling? Can focusing our happiness towards God with praise and worship change how we view sharing those moments?  God is the source of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17). How can this verse help shape your worship and praise?  Take some time this week to praise God for some good gifts, which are present even
