Needing A Nap

Church on Sunday morning had me in a bit of a funk...not church itself, but the act of getting myself there.  I'm just feeling lonely, I guess, without that guy that I like so much along for the ride...or even listening to the same sermon that I am, though Alex has proven to be a very good 'gospel discusser' on the drives home.  

I'm the wife of a church worker so being alone in church is nothing why am I pouty?  


We all met up at home and the rain started pouring down....sheets of water were falling from the sky.  Glorious.


A hunk of panetone, a few strawberries and a big mug of english breakfast tea.

And then, because it seems that everyone is talking about it, I started reading The Hunger Games.  I was thinking it wasn't 'my' kinda book until I got to page 2 and was hooked.  That guy that I like so much is reading it too...though gone are the days of reading a book together,  each of us on our own side of the book holding it up in the middle.

Never thought I'd say it, but I love eReaders. 


Needing something bready I decided to try my hand, once again, at making biscuits.  I make great hockey pucks, but following a friends advice and using bread flour they came out light and fluffy.  Amazing.

I made a simple honey butter to go alongside (stick of softened butter, 3 T honey, 1/4 tsp cinnamon...mixed together) and just imagine:  a rainy afternoon, a houseful of males, a plate of warm biscuits and a dish of sweet butter.

All that was missing was snorting.


I love how one simple day can set the tone for the whole taking a true sabbath seems to just make everything run a little smoother.

That being said,  there's not a whole lotta sleeping happening on this very, very early Wednesday morning.  Brian has a tummy ache, so we're up watching a movie at 3:00am.  Poor guy.  I'm thinking we'll be sticking close to home today...and maybe a nap.




  1. I love reading your blog. Brings me back to perspective. I think your Sunday was wonderful! {{{sigh}}}. My youngest son goes to college about 2.5 hours away so I don't see him much. Miss my Longhorn...alot! My oldest is home for and work keep him busy. He moves in w/ younger brother in August. And my baby..a girl, graduates in May and will be an Aggie. By the grace of God I will be okay...I dread the "empty house"..I've been keeping this "nest" for so long..what shall I do? :) Thanks for sharing your weekend..and morning..I'm guess now, I should read Hunger games!? LOL

  2. Oh my goodness---Hunger Games is really good. I read all three last summer. When you finish that series, read The Maze Runner trilogy---kinda like the Hunger Games and also very good
