Thankful Thursday

I wanted to jump in today and say a quick hello and let you know about some of the things that I am utterly thankful for this Thursday!

1. Planes and their ability to move people from one location to another so quickly. What used to be a once in a lifetime one way journey I can now make easily in a days time and then turn around in a week and do it all over again.

2. The Seattle Museum. It was quite lovely and I enjoyed seeing some Monet, my favorite, and then I also enjoyed seeing a Matisse and thinking "I could totally do that"

3. Coffee, good Seattle kind of coffee, strong and with junk readily available to cut the bitter, things like half and half or steamed milk. NUM

4. Family. It's quite lovely to be with family. And I'm thankful that they are willing to love one another enough to argue, but man it wears me out (I'm referring to Hannah and her cousins not the adults)

5. My dear sweet husband, whom I love with all my heart. I'm so glad that he was able to let us take a week to visit his family without him and that he knew the Lord would take care of us in all things.

6. A renewed interest in smocking and a lovely BelleMere that not only inspires me, but helps find and fund projects for me :D

7. (One of God's favorite numbers no less) I am thankful for all of you and the fact that you have continued to read my blog and for all the lovely comments you have all left me since starting HoHa in the past month.

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.

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!
