Out of the Compost Bin?

Dessert waitress at Papa Haydn's to us: "It's like a decomposed tiramisu...oops, I mean deconstructed."

An Ellie Mosaic

I know it's been forever since I posted. But my last few months have been taken up with two daughters home for the summer and also our adorable new puppy. Introducing Ellie, our new little corgi! I think Murphy would have approved.

Newsflash

Meet Ellie, our little puppy-to-be! We visited her this last weekend.



I'm ready to hyperventilate, I'm so excited (that may be a slight exaggeration, but not much). She's a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, like Murphy. Can't wait to bring our baby home!

Keeping the Feast


I've been blog-friends with Milton, who blogs at Don't Eat Alone, for quite a few years. Like me, Milton spent his early years in Africa, and he also writes poetry. Recently Milton published his first book: Keeping the Feast.


As he says, "This book about what nourishes us: food, faith, family, and friends, and how all of those elements are essential ingredients of Communion--in fact, how every meal of our lives holds an invitation to the Sacred Meal."

I forgot to say that Milton's a chef, and has worked as a youth pastor as well. Who better to write about feasting, faith, and friends?

A Quiet Moment



Now you know where I got my love for reading. From Dad, and also Mom. Isn't that the way it often works?

Of course teachers can play a big part, and grandparents, and librarians. Anyone who shows a child the many worlds to be entered simply through cracking open a book (or e-book, nowadays).

How'd you learn to enjoy reading?
