On the Way to Adventures

Walking through the airport last week listening to the boarding calls for Europe, Asia and big city America stirred the wanderlust within me . . .

Beautiful.  Playful.  Possibly my favorite fountain.

Fruits of the Harvest

with one comment

The best part of this year’s garden were the squash and pumpkins that Charity grew.  She has never tried them before and they were a smash success.

They were also a success when smashed.  I normally don’t like pumpkin pie but these little guys made something that was pretty amazing.

The squirrels this year were brutal.  We had narry a tomato until the pecans began to distract them.  But this made for some good pesto and that very tasty pie.

Strange Fruit

with 2 comments

Ever seen a monstera before?  The wife of our most recent pastoral candidate brought one for us from South Florida as a thank you gift for our hosting her and her husband for a couple of nights.  It tasted like a cross between a pineapple and a banana.

I’m guessing the reason they aren’t sold commercially is that only about an inch is ready to eat each day.  The green covering explodes off and you eat the ripe inch underneath.  It is a little disconcerting to have a third eaten, third ripened, third unripe piece of fruit on the table day after day.  It’s like having green bananas and ripe bananas at the same time on the same bunch.

A very strange gift.  I liked it.  Infinitely more interesting than a knickknack.

We also like them and our new pastor is scheduled to start in two weeks.  Praise God!

Fans and Blogging

Apologies to those of you that still check here manually.  I can imagine you get frustrated stopping by so often with nothing new posted.  I am still alive.

I was disc golfing today and asked the guy I was playing with what some of his goals for this year are.  Blogging more often is one of mine.  I miss it.

Here’s a shot from a friend’s wedding this summer.  Thought it might be a nice way to start back in a bit.  I really love this photo.
