Pleased as Punch

For the longest time, I knew that we would need a new computer, probably for the past six years or so, I have been waiting for the day that we would get one.  And today was the day.  We went and got a brand new laptop from Best Buy.  I was torn between the reliability and longevity of a desktop and the total lack of desire to have the computer set up in one room, not in the midst of the activity of our home.  In the end, it was the seeing that two Windows laptops can be purchased for the price of one Apple.  I decided the price was worth it.  I even hope that we'll be able to by a new desktop for our school work sometime next year.
But here I am, typing in the middle of the night.  That could be a bad habit, but I doubt it will be a regular basis.  I just wanted to say hello to you while I could. 
I am glad to report that I have made a complete recovery from my bout of Lyme disease.  I  am so utterly thankful for my doctor at the Henry Ford Medical Center that diagnosed me and made sure that I have been getting better.  She has been a blessing to me.  I've had lots of great doctors since moving to Plymouth.  It's been something that I could not have asked for but am so thankful that I received.

I feel like I'm rambling, so I'm going to call it a night and hopefully be able to come back and write some more tomorrow!

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

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.

Journey to Love Matt Mikalatos

Did you read Sky Lantern ? No? Well, go read it and then come back for this book. Yes, order them at the same time! I promise you, they'll both be worth it and they really are part of one another. Here's why, Matt Mikalatos lost a very dear friend, Shasta, he tells part of their story in Sky Lantern and fulfills a promise to with Journey to Love.  Journey to Love is a little book, almost a 40 day devotional with little vignettes of love and then ways for you to reflect that love and an exercise to grow in that aspect of love. It's not an easy book because love isn't an easy thing. the reflections and exercises sometimes take a few days to work through or a lifetime if we're honest.  I was touched by how Mikalatos decided to fulfill his promise to Shasta, how he managed to leave a little bit of their love on the written page for people to witness for years to come. It's beautiful and heartbreaking and challenging and rewarding. To be able to have a little glimpse
