Where Faith, Food and Life Converge

Month: March 2015

Monday Mondays 3.30.15

Don’t you love that when Spring arrives, things that seem like CHORES the rest of the year are actually enjoyable?  For instance, this week I got outside and washed weeks’ worth of of grime off my car, AND I weeded.  Ask me in the middle […]

Life gets in the way and selfishly, I live It

A few days ago, a friend died. And a couple weeks ago, my uncle died. Both, too soon. In each case, I felt like I hadn’t connected often enough or in a proper time frame to let them know they mattered. They mattered to me. We all […]

What Books Matter to YOU?

Once upon a time, I was a little girl who, more often than not, spent hours on end living vicariously and aimlessly wandering through the pages of books.  Sure, I played outside.  A LOT, actually.  But coming inside was not really ever a problem because […]

Monday Mondays 3.23.15

Some days, some weeks, some hours just seem to be more productive than others, don’t they?  This past week, I was pretty productive, but not necessarily in some of the things that were on “my” list.  Maybe others’ lists, or maybe not, but it seemed […]

Monday Mondays 3.16.15

Top o’the mornin’ to ya!  Do YOU have any Irish in you?  I do – my mother’s maiden name is Kelly.  Pretty darn Irish if you ask me!  11%, or roughly 35 million Americans can claim Irish heritage,  which is about 7 times more than […]

For anyone who’s ever planned something, be it a work presentation, wedding, party for New Year’s Eve, or even a trip, well, sometimes, you just have to compromise on your expectations.  Sometimes, you have this vision in your mind of exactly what you want something […]

Norwegain Pancakes

Norwegain Pancakes

For some reason we know several families of Norwegian descent.  Several year ago, we were visiting one of those families in Seattle and we happened to be there during the birthday of one of their little boys.  For breakfast he requested Norwegian Pancakes.  I’d never […]

Monday Mondays 3.9.15

Did the Daylight Saving Time thing mess you up?  I was okay until about 3:30 Sunday afternoon.  Then it hit me.  I couldn’t wait for it to get dark so I could get into bed.  This despite the fact that it was sunny and Spring-like […]

Fear Not

I often appreciate reading a whole book, like Laura Hillenbrand’s Unbroken, and just being blown away by the story in its entirety. Unbroken remains for me one of the top 10 books I’ve ever read. The fact that not only was it a true story but […]

Monday Mondays 3.2.15

    Forget Mondays being notorious for their BLAH-ness, with winter hanging on for dear life, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and even Fridays have felt a lot like Mondays lately.  Yes, I know Northerners make fun of us Southerners not being able to handle a single snowflake, but honestly, […]
