Labor Day Rambles

::Weekly Rambles::

What’s really on my mind and heart?
The suffering that goes on around the world---in Iraq, in Israel, in Ferguson, and just in everyday lives where people are suffering from various illnesses. What's my response to that supposed to be?

What am I thankful for?
So many blessings---too many to count, though I try. This week, I'm thankful for a long weekend, and a kid who comes home from college for a short visit.

What’s going on in school?
You guys, officially our Causevox fundraiser for our new school building ended yesterday, and there is exciting news on the site today! Please go look, and if you haven't given, won't you please consider a small donation? Every bit makes a difference.

What’s cooking?
Pulled pork roasted all night in the oven. This is like the easiest dish ever, and everyone in the family loves it. And the leftovers.....we're happy for days around here. I use Tyler Florence's bbq sauce recipe, but we just coat the Boston butt in sea salt before roasting. I'm sure a rub would be better, but we have 0 complaints about this way!

What’s on the needles?
A ginormous cowl, or infinity scarf. I made one for a friend, upon request, and now I'm making another. On size 50 needles it doesn't take long!

Still working on Clapo-ktus....well into the decreasing now, so every row is faster. I can't wait to finish it and wear it---even though it may be too warm for that for a long while!

What’s special about this week?
Busy with AHG! We had a new parent meeting last week with lots of registrations to process (and that means checks to deposit for this new Treasurer!), and we have a special meeting for Leaders this week with all the girls coming next week. 

What am I reading?
Dad is Fat by Jim Gaffigan. I have to remember to read it in his "voice" if you know what I mean, otherwise it isn't funny. :-)

The Beauty of Broken by Elisa Morgan, recommended by one of my good friends. It's about how no one has a perfect life; we all have baggage and issues that prevent us from fully living out God's plan. I think. I'm not that far into it, and I had terrible dreams the other night was awful...and about brokenness....I think I'll read this book during the day and not just before bed. 

What am I praying about?
All of those things listed above, family, and friends, and our school fundraiser.

What’s on my ipod?/
Some of my favorite podcasters have been AWOL, so I listened to a book that I really didn't care for, but the story had great potential and I wanted to see how it ended. The ending was decent, but it was still a trashy novel. 

What projects are happening at home?
One weekend I had a lot of energy and started cleaning and thinking about a yard sale, but I haven't had the time or energy since then, so the bags of Keep, Trash, or Giveaway are still in the upstairs hall waiting. I'd still like to finish cleaning the house, though, even if I don't sell the junk but donate it instead.

Maybe an Etsy shop is in the works.
