comfort food

I found a wonderful recipe for Old Fashioned Blueberry Pie the other day on Katie's blog. So good. Between the two of us it lasted a grand total of 26 hours. Our ice cream managed to disappear too. *blush*

bits from today

:: sweater for Baby ::

"Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent member of the Council, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of God, went boldly to Pilate and asked for Jesus' body."
- Mark 15:44

For some reason that phrase caught my attention this morning: he was known by the fact that he was awaiting the kingdom of God. Was he zealously waiting? Or was it just commonly known that Joseph from Arimathea was waiting for the kingdom of God?

getting colder .......

For the past few nights the temperature has been dropping down into the mid 30's, so I have been bringing the plants in at night to keep them a little cozier. we don't have too many plants left from the summer, but the tomato plant has decided to give us an additional late crop and I really don't want the new tomatoes to freeze!

I found these adorable little booties made by frostingcouture just now, and they brought such a smile to my face that I wanted to share them with all of you. She makes each pair to order by hand, in sizes from 0 to 1 year.

Just picture a chubby little girl, her feet blooming with the sweetest blossoms ...

old and new

It was time. Time to retire my old blush brush for a new one.
So, good-bye old brush. You served me well, even as you broke down and shed bristles all over my face and clothing. You did the best you could, and I know I will find remnants of you for days to come in all sorts of unexpected places.
It's not your fault that the new brush is so very much smoother and consistent. It is simply newer and higher quality. I am, without regret, throwing you away anyhow.

oct 3

toast, with really yummy lemon curd

This morning John and I went to visit the midwife again, and we came home knowing that both baby and mama are doing great. Both healthy and growing, though my blood pressure is a bit low - 112 over 60-ish - and she had no explanation for why my hair keeps falling out. Silly me, it's supposed to fall out after Baby is born, not before. Baby even put on a little show for her by moving all around when she tried to listen for the heartbeat (which is loud and strong!).

changing hue

Yesterday morning was just lovely. A tad brisk, but lovely. I walked down to the church behind our place and took some pictures of their trees (since we don't have our own yet), and when I was looking at the pictures again this morning, they reminded of a line in a Josh Groban song: "Flaming flowers that brightly blaze/ Swirling clouds and violet haze/ Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue/ Colors changing hue/ Morning fields of amber grain ..."

Isn't autumn a gorgeous time of year? All the seasons can be, I know, but I particularly notice the Spring and Fall. It's almost as if God gets out His box of colors for a final flourish before He sends the world to bed for the winter.
