Thankful Thursday!!



I'm thankful for you today! Thanks for taking this journey with me!!

I'm thankful for my amazing husband! He is a constant in my life that I know I can count on. He is there to help when I can't help myself and to encourage when all I want to do is give up. Love you, SweetPea!!

I'm thankful for prayer and for listening and obeying! We've been struggling with math this year in homeschooling. Not her understanding, but me teaching it. I know that she's the right age to pick it all up in a hurry. I was struggling with being consistent. God laid it on my heart to do something about that. He opened a door for me and I walked through and it's exactly what we all needed. I can't wait to see the difference in a few months.

I'm thankful for rain,, though I would much prefer snow. Rain is good for future days, where snow is beautiful for today and good for future days, just sayin'.

I'm thankful that my dad is able to stay with us a few days and that he'll be around town for the next month or so. Looking forward to spending some more time with him before he heads to Idaho for the summer.

I'm thankful for Facebook! Are you on Facebook? Come join me over there! I share some things on my page that aren't quite enough for a whole blog post and we have some fun on occassion, too! This week, we're having a week long cleaning spree to help get ready for spring cleaning! Hop over and give it a like. fb.me/tinathestoryteller

What are you thankful for?

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.

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!
