Into the Weekend We Go

It has been a very full week.  We have been working on some schoolwork.  I have to strike while the iron's hot with my little one.  We also went caroling with the church.  Had a great visit with a friend.  Got new windows and a storm door.  And most importantly we are finishing up a wonderful Sabbath.

We celebrate our Sabbath on Friday. My husband is a pastor, he has to work on Sundays so we don't really get the luxury of taking Sunday as a lazy day.  He also has a lot of meetings on Saturdays, because the church is made up of people that work Monday through Friday and we sometimes need Saturday to meet together to get the work of the church done.  So, we have settled on Friday.  Joel does not go into the office, we as a family tend to ignore the phone, and we try our best to ignore the internet, but that hasn't been happening as much lately, we ignore the television, and we pay attention to other things.  We spend time being thankful for the gifts that God has given us.  Though we aren't perfect in this pursuit, we do try.  And that's what our Sabbath day is, an attempt to take an entire day and remember that God rested and we should rest, too.

And it is with this day of rest behind us that we enter into the weekend, looking forward to being with those that we work alongside.

How do you rest?

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti

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!
