Rest

Those silly Braxton Hicks started a couple of weeks ago.  Annoying "fake" contractions that indicate that the body is preparing, exercising, for labor.  It's normal and expected.

 

But they began to grow stronger and stronger in intensity, until Sunday afternoon when they grew so intense that I could no longer stand up straight,…

Pop Those Peppers

I am returning to my blog posts about the health benefits of vegetables.

 

And what better vegetable to start off with than with bell peppers.

 

There is nothing more yummy that a fresh, ripe bell pepper. They are the perfect combination of tangy and sweet and you don't even need to dip them in anything.  They are…

It's hard to believe that I am nearing the end...already!  The number of weeks left is in single digits, and that's just incredible.

 

So, here's the low-down:

5 Keys to Contentment: All About Complaining

Shandra over at "A Pause On the Path" has begun "On Your Heart Tuesdays".  So far I've managed to eek out one post, but quite frankly, I didn't have anything on my heart last week other than "LET ME SLEEP" - that was what was on my heart all week.  (blushing)

 

But, a…

Menu Plan Monday and a Cool Desert

 

I haven't done this in a while.  Z's been working a lot of 2nd shifts, so I haven't been doing a lot of cooking.  But since he is now back on first shift (any by Sunday you can expect my first shift-work journal), I am looking forward to cooking up some yummy meals!

The Media Wrap

 

I may have gotten a late start, and in the end "Media Monday" became "Media Friday" or something similar - because the past few weeks have been exhausting for me and my blogging has suffered because of it.  But, this is the wrap-up to a series of how media affects our…

Looking for Guest Posts

 

This is me at 28 weeks.  I am now 3 days away from 32 weeks - so you can imagine that I am a bit bigger now than I was when this picture was taken (btw, next week you'll get a new picture and an update on Andrej)

 

That means I'm only 2 months away from the…

Its Taking Over My Health

The longer I sit here the bigger my feet swell.

 

Seriously.  

 

But knowing that doesn't seem to stop me.  

 

Truth is, I sit at my desk way too much.  To be sure, I do administration for our church, so I must sit here some of the time.  I do my devotions here, read the news online (and sometimes comment on…

Social Media and My Friendships

 

Unfortunately, I am late linking up at WLW, but that's okay because as I've been pondering something that  took me until today to make a very important decision.

 

Social media means a lot to me as a missionary.  My family and life-long friends live on the…

Thoughts From This Lazy Blogger

Yea, I'll admit it.  I've been a bit lazy both with blogging and reading blogs that I follow.

 

In fact, this morning Google Reader showed I had a whopping 185 unread blog posts.  Yikes!

 

I did scroll through them all, and picked ones that I wanted to read and comment on.  Here's what that looks like:

Are We Getting Closer?

I am 30 weeks along.

 

I have an 18-month old.

 

It seems the housework never ends.

 

My floor is sticky.

 

I can't bend over anymore to pick up all the toys scattered everywhere.

 

I have tons of translating work to do, and a worship list to arrange by Friday.

 

It…

An Easy and Light Healthy Lunch

 

I've been seriously lacking inspiration to blog over the past several days. 

 

And time is a factor, as well.  

 

Being huge and pregnant and running after an 18-month old has pretty much wore me out.…

To All the Jobs I've Had Before

A 20-year-old me.  Picture package for a daycare I worked at in Portland, OR

 

I got my first job when I was 13 years old.

 

I wasn't paid, but my boss was my mom's very good friend and it was arranged that she would treat me just like a paid employee at her daycare center.…

Just a Bit Random

Okay....17,036 people have viewed my blog???

 

 

All I can say is WOW.  I write because I have a million and one thoughts roaming around in my head looking for a way to be expressed on paper.  If someone actually reads what I like, it's just cherry on the icing for me.

 

17,036 cherries is a lot of cherries....(I hope they…
