Sugar Stop Cake Shop Pizza Love

It's the first day of spring break for your daughter. What are you going to do? Join Grandma for lunch! They have great pizza at the local bakery. Next time we'll have to try one of their dessert pizzas.

Produce Bargain Love

Mornings can be fruitful. But it's worth swinging by the marked down produce section all hours. You never know what bargains you will find. I get especially excited about $1 bags of colored peppers. I love our local Fred Meyer!

That Friend

You know how there is that friend you can always call? I haven't needed any help or favors lately. But today I stopped by to deliver her birthday card. And locked my keys in the car. My friend's husband drove to my house to get the extra set of car keys. Good thing we only live two miles apart!

Happy Birthday!

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8 ESV

Step Away Again

I lost my favorite exercise DVD in our move. I'm sure it will turn up eventually. In the meantime, I bought a replacement. Time to Step Away the Inches!

To Swirl or Not to Swirl

Some of my people went to Dairy Queen for a free cone tonight. I was busy with a women's Bible study cohort. But don't feel sorry for me. I already had my free cone today! Only mine was not a swirl cone.

Included for Dinner

My friend put on a nice St. Patrick's dinner tonight. Complete with corned beef and the fixings. The green table cloth and personalized name tags were a nice touch. Nice to be included!

Blintz Love

How about berry blintzes for breakfast? Thanks to the Basement Bistro at the hospital. Sounds like a plan. Nice to have my son's girlfriend here this weekend.

Green Jello Love

We celebrated one day early. With a St. Patrick's themed dinner at my mother-in-law's place last night. Her stuffed cabbage rolls were tasty! With a side of green jello. Works for us!

Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality. Romans 12:13 ESV

Five Minutes' Peace Love

I thought I recognized what the little boy was happily reading in the shopping cart at the thrift store. Sure enough, it was Five Minutes' Peace by Jill Murphy. I love that book!

I blogged about it 10 years ago.

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world." John 16:33 ESV

Tulip Delivery

I wasn't sure who was so kind to bring a bouquet of tulips. My husband was at work, so it wasn't him. It was my mother-in-law! Too bad I wasn't home to make tea or coffee for us.

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8 ESV

What He Does For Us

Why is that man lying on the ground under a desk? It's just my husband, disassembling furniture at the Habitat for Humanity store so it will fit in our car. The things he does for love!

Pictured: My daughter's new desk, before it was taken apart to transport. And then put back together in her room.

But not so with you. Rather, let the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves. Luke 22:26 ESV

Listen to the Sisters

Always good to have our older daughter home for the weekend. Enjoy a cup of tea at the counter. Don't forget honey for hers. Make extra oatmeal for breakfast. Listen to the sisters laugh.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 1 Corinthians 13:4 ESV

Breakfast for Four

Table for four please. Actually, we can seat ourselves. Breakfast in the Basement Bistro at the local hospital works for us. Oatmeal with yogurt, fruit, and granola for me. Plus one egg over medium. I always enjoy the Batdorf and Bronson coffee. Good times.

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31 ESV
