Project 52: Date Night week before last

Last week I was out of town and I left on the day that I normally post about our dates, so this is from that week, if I can remember what we did....

We had a super low key date night because there was an event at the church on Friday night and Saturday day and Hannah and I were leaving on the following Monday, oh yeah and I helped with coffee hour at church that Sunday.  A much busier weekend than what we are accustomed to to say the least. 

I dropped by the dollar bin at Target again and picked up a little Toy Story game book with the special marker that makes things appear on the pages.  It was actually a lot of fun.  We went through the entire book and talked a little smack in some of the games, even though the majority of them are luck of the color.  It was nice to have a little respite and coloring on such a busy weekend. 

It is a new month and the ownership of the date night should switch to Joel.  His birthday is this weekend, so I might have to make up for missing last week with a really nice night this week.  I bought a Jenga the other day and thought we might try our hand at truth or Jenga one of these nights. 

Thanks for dropping by!  I look forward to reading around for some great ideas!

  1. We're stuggling for date night mojo at the moment - just lack of time - but at least remembering this means that we are talking more than before. Every minute counts! xo

  2. I am all for low-key. We can't be brillant every date! (Thankfully) We have just had our 20th and I feel like we have done it all already. I guess we just have to start over again. Happy birthday Joel.

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.

When Through Deep Waters by Rachelle Dekker

When Through Deep Waters is Rachelle Dekker's fourth book, the first three a dystopian trilogy. I was excited to see what other stories she had for us. Fortunately, this one does not disappoint.

Alicen has suffered a tragic loss and is trying to find her way through the grief. She lands in the family vacation home of her childhood friend. The idyllic location reminds her of all the hope she had for her life as a child and forces her to deal with many different disappointments in her life including the life and death of her beloved grandmother.

Here's what I love about the book, one, it's an old-school Frank Peretti style spiritual warfare book in that Alicen is an ordinary person that is struggling with spiritual forces. Two, it's a fiction book that made me want to get out my journal and explore some thoughts that bubbled up about myself! Third, God wins in the end and it doesn't look like the normal everyone desires. Fourth, straight up scripture usage that does…
