the old things have passed away; 

behold, new things have come.

Family Friday

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

This is the past two weeks.

I missed it last week. 

I picked up some Irish soda bread and a shamrock plant at the market last weekend.

The bread wasn't very good but the Oxalis is quite pretty.

I may make some of my own Irish bread this weekend. 

Joe and I will both be 56 this year.

I think he looks pretty jaunty as he gets ready to take the trash out.


I brought our old cheesebox guitar to work today for the toddlers to mess around with.

Joe tuned it on the subway on the way in.

On the way home there was a 9 alarm fire in the New England Casket Co.

It shut down the subway system and stretched our 1 hour commute into over 3!

Fortunately there was only 1 injury of an officer who was treated and released.

Brothers and sisters:

since we have been justified by faith,

we have peace with God through our Lord,  Jesus Christ,

through whom we have gained access by faith

to the grace in which we stand, 

and we boast in hope of the glory of God. 

And hope does not disappoint,  

because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts 

through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

Romans 5:1-2,5

Daisies in the kitchen 

of a sunny morning

I believe the nicest and sweetest days

are not those on which anything very splendid 

or wonderful or exciting happens

but just those that bring simple little pleasures

following one another softly,

like pearls slipping off a string.

5 days in my kitchen

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

the fun

We have a rocking chair in the kitchen by the window.

It's quite sunny there and of a Saturday morning

I often find myself with a cup of tea and a good read.

the good

I picked up a bunch of daisies from the market last week.

I don't see them there very often.

Normally it's carnations or chrysanthemums. 

Daisies were a lovely treat and made me think of the warm weather to come.
