Clouds, Soundscapes and Creative Genius

Feeling encouraged to slow down and take time to notice the clouds.  

Geophony, Biophony and Anthrophony = Soundscapes  I loved the grunting sea anemone!  And the beaver...break my heart.

The source of my creative genius is God.

#1 Cooking Through a Cookbook

I have chosen the "Glycemic Index Cooking made easy" by Jennie Brand-Miller, Kaye Foster-Powell and Joanna McMillan Price as the cookbook I will cook through for two reasons:  I wanted the cookbook to be random and I found this cookbook for 50 cents at the thrift store.  I think this may have been a infomercial type book...

Orange Muesli--quick, easy and YUM!

Tortellini and Ham Salad--basic pasta salad that can be freestyled using whatever you have in the fridge.  The recipe called for 2 cans of artichoke hearts but I only used 1 and it was plenty.  I'm not sure I'm an artichoke heart fan.  This was nothing special. 

Marinated Eggplant Slices with Herbs--tasty but seriously, I liked the broiled eggplant BEFORE the marinade happened.  I won't make this again, but I'm glad I tried it because I had no idea broiled eggplant would be so tasty.  Kids would not touch it.

Thankful that Jake and Emma gave me a break and wrangled the kids one night at VBS.

I like Belle's ponytail.  It flips!

Jake ate a tongue taco.  Belle tasted it. GAG!

See the tongue bumps?!

Nervous and Excited!

They're going to Haiti at the end of the week.  I've been praying for these two for awhile now...praying that God will keep them safe and that their hearts will be touched.  I'm nervous but sooo excited!!
