Day 22/30

Day Twenty two - What makes you different from everyone else.


I think one of the main things that makes me different from everyone else is the fact that I grew up in South Carolina, the daughter of Southern parents and have absolutely no accent. Yup, that is about the only thing that makes me different from everyone else.
'Cause honestly, other people are smart, pretty, and humble. I don't have the market on those things. Other people are married to the most awesome guy in the world, but in my case it's actually true. Other people have a lot of education that they don't use to make copious amounts of money. Other people have great extended families. Other people are crafty and love learning new things. Other people homeschool, even if they have only one child. Other people blog. Other people love Jesus. No the thing that makes me different is that I'm from the South and have no accent to show for it.

What makes you different?

  2. Joel, I'd say yours is that unlike Sylvia Stout you will take the garbage out.



    PS The garbage men did not take Monday off. I guess God and garbage don't recognize President's day as a valid day off ;)

  3. I guess that means that I have more in common with garbage men than I suspected. Wonder what that means...

  4. Maybe I can answer that in a post tonight after Hannah goes to sleep " Joel and The Garbage Man" I just have to make sure that it makes more sense than Hudson Hawk and it will be great!

Hospitality for the Rest of Us: Long Distance

People are moving more and more. When I was a youngster, it was a rare instance for a friend to move away. Now it's me that moves away. We've moved a lot, especially when we first got married. It was something like five addresses and three states in the first four years of our marriage. We've slowed down a bit. In the midst of all that moving, we've made some friends along the way. I try to keep an open line in case of times of grief and celebration. One of the best tools I've found for keeping in touch with loved ones far away is Facebook. As much time as I could spend doing other things instead of checking it, it's the best thing I've found. It allows me to communicate with others, without having to call. I know calling is amazing, hearing people's voices, but for introverts, there are no body language clues for us to pick up on that help make our conversations easier. It's also why we prefer to video chat :-) Back to Facebook, some etiquette.

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.

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
