whatever is lovely... if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. Philippians 4:8

How Fun! Vol. 34


“How fun!” I find myself exclaiming this many times throughout the week. Here are just a few things that touched me or made me smile:

blue chippy paint
Dontcha just love chippy paint?

Beauty in my week:

  • Gimbal’s Scottie Dog licorice.
  • Family walks after dark.
  • Downtown trees strung with white twinkle lights to celebrate our town’s 200th birthday.
  • Flowers from a neighbor.
  • Older daughters who prepare wonderful meals for the family.


Blooming in my garden this week: 
hydrangeas, roses, gooseneck loosestrife, day lilies, sweet peas, purple hosta, bee balm, lamb’s ear, daisy, purple loosestrife,


Here’s a really fun instagram account to follow:  @mirrorsme   She draws elaborate doodles on her mirror, inserts herself into them, and then snaps a selfie.  I find it very imaginative and whimsical.  And thank you to all those who started or do follow me on instagram!  I appreciate you!


Instead of my weekly menu, I’m going to tell you about the Indian meal that Amy made us.  I know that Amy eats lots of Indian food while she’s in DC.  We don’t really have any Indian restaurants close to us.  About the time we were deciding if we should make the drive to a restaurant around some distance away, one of my friends suddenly came into all of these Indian ingredients that she wanted to give away.  (The Lord provides!!!)  Amy spent all day yesterday cooking and amazing scents filled the air in our home.  We have FEASTED!

Easy Indian Butter Chicken
Saag Paneer (with no paneer.  lol)
Chana Daal
Basamati Rice
Store bought Naan (Believe it or not, I found it at Walmart!!!)
Kulfi (I made this and used real whipping cream instead of Cool Whip.)

Amy used this recipe to make Tandoori Masala which was used in the Butter Chicken.


If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.  Marcus Cicero
