Project 52: Bible Study

I don't remember how it got started, but we sat and listened to music for quite awhile last Friday and then Joel decided, that they thing he wanted to do was have a little Bible study.  It was nice to sit and read scripture together.  I'm not sure if this is going to be a regular thing, but it was a welcomed change of pace.

Though I am really struggling with staying excited about date night and making sure that it doesn't just turn into us watching shows at night, is getting harder and harder to do.  It could just be the summer and the busier schedule that we have right now, but I would have thought that it would be easier to come up with date ideas in the summer.

We have come to the conclusion that trading off months of planning doesn't work, mainly because one of us does not end up planning an entire months worth and thinks the month is always over before it is.  After loosing track of who was in charge and floundering over whose night it is to plan, we have dropped the ball more often than not. 

I do see that the important is spending time together.  But if it's not well planned it becomes a burden more so than time together.  I think we have to recommit ourselves to date night to finish off an actual year of dates, because right now, I feel like my project 52 is getting the back burner.

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!
