Sometimes we see the craziest things in life! Like this . . . We saw this group of cars near the airport. We thought that maybe they were parked there so that they could watch the airplanes land and take off. But we now think that they were parked on the hill so that freeway… Read More Sometimes . . .
Can I just say that I am SO BUSY these days! I haven’t played the piano in weeks. I haven’t relaxed or read a book. I haven’t created new dishes of food or spent quality time with my community. I have been busily preparing to go on this trip to the USA, while wrapping up… Read More Busy, Busy, Busy, Busy!
We had one amazing, wonderful and satisfying weekend. So much so, I literally forgot to blog. (I hope I blog on our trip in a few weeks. Maybe I’ll set an alarm to remind me? 🤷🏻♀️) Curly Cook started the weekend off by buying and wrapping a wedding gift for her primary teacher Julissa. She… Read More RNC Dance and a Wedding

Today is Labor Day in Costa Rica. So this bad boy was dumped down the drain in a nearby grocery store, so… Read More That’s a Bummer!
So, this is what I’m doing today. If you know what this is, then you know exactly what I’ve been up to all day. My kids really don’t like where I’m storing it though. Thankfully they have a VERY clean mother. Happy Tuesday,
I love this picture! Everyone looks “normal”. It speaks to me. It’s quaint, personal, private, like they are hidden from the world and it’s just them in this moment. I also love a new take on this story that Paul, GingerSnap and I discussed the other day. When Christ tells Martha that Mary has chosen… Read More Normal People
I’ve been making some great progress on my quilt blocks! Basic Idea. Rough draft! Chose the fabric. Washed and ironed the fabric. Played around with ideas. Started cutting. No turning back! Started ironing! Exciting! Started sewing! Oh boy! Learning curve here we come! Double learning curve, but found success! This has been a super cute… Read More Making Progress!
Truth moment – I am TERRIBLE at holidays, birthdays and special occasions. I stress out, get overwhelmed, and then if the littlest negativity is spoken, I get my feelings hurt. 🥺😫 It’s terrible! But I pushed on this year because I know that these moments matter. They can create lasting memories, as well as (and… Read More Easter Lesson 2019
