Well, at least until January I am going to try vegetarianism for my cholesterol.  My lab numbers are only in the borderline range, thank God, but since I can't take the statin due to side effects, I am going to try a "natural" approach.  I do NOT mean "natural" in the sense that I think that… MORE

At the ministry fair today at church, I brought bananas (Junior Church is like teaching monkeys!), Smarties candies, phyllo mini-quiches, and mini-pigs-in-blankets.  I admit that I did not make the little quiches!  :)  Hubby and I had a lot to do to get ready for the "fair," and I cheated and… MORE

The anniversary of 9/11 occurs on Sunday.  News about a "specific, credible, yet unconfirmed" terror threat against New York and/or Washington, DC dominates the news media.  My youngest daughter just started college in New York.  :-/ So, yes, I am preoccupied.  I read a prayer request on the… MORE

(First of all, I need to thank those sweet souls who take the time to comment on this blog.  Hello, my new "friends!"  I didn't expect any feedback, but it is really -- hmm, what's a good word? -- connecting to see responses.  I like having you around.)Yesterday I saw my doctor for a follow-up… MORE

Hurricane Irene became Tropical Storm Irene.  Tropical Storm Irene became, at least for us, a Sunday at home--totally at home.  Since the governor declared a state of emergency, nonessential traffic was discouraged.  What a blessing!  I couldn't go anywhere!  On a "normal" day off, I find… MORE

We just dropped Julie off at college in New York City two days ago.  This weekend a hurricane, Irene, is assaulting the East Coast and especially New York, which is, after all, mainly a bunch of islands.  Church has been cancelled (I prayed for that) to respect the governor's declaration of a… MORE

Today at work was a weird, not good day.  Last Friday I received the "letter" "welcoming" me to full-time employment, at a lower pay scale, at WSH.  I was expecting it relatively soon; so, that was not a surprise.  The frustrations are these: Supposedly, although I did not… MORE

This is one of those days where I would love to spend all my time at home taking care of all the myriad things that need to be done to close up Christmas.  I'm having a little trouble focusing on work, mostly because I have 7 things or more that are priorities...and I don't know where to… MORE

Interesting journal prompt today from The Joys of Journaling.  I may want to do something like this for myself and for my Building Self Esteem Group this week. Have I ever...played a game for the fun of it, and not to win? Have I ever...just sat still for 5 minutes without falling… MORE

Really, though, I have been journaling elsewhere.  This past month--November, Thanksgiving--would probably be the most food-based month of the year, too! Test-cooking the Boneless Turkey Breast with Cranberry-Apple Stuffing that I plan to serve my DH's family on Christmas Eve. … MORE

About Me
I love Jesus Christ. I am sold out to working with children, especially to show the love of God to them. I also serve the seriously mentally ill, who are really quite delightful people when they are well.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook things to serve to family for family time together. It doesn't much matter what it is.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Everyone pitches in. That's the tradition I like so much.
