Have you ever learned a new word, then noticed it in practically every conversation you had and article you read? Recently I had the same experience, except instead of new vocabulary, I learned a new laundry method.

I'm writing this on Monday, fully hoping that if I write it, it will come. Last Wednesday, we called a plumber after noticing that our front yard had a spring flowing through it. We live in the desert, so running water normally calls for celebration. Not this time.

February's visiting teaching message talks about how visiting teachers have an opportunity to develop friendships with the sisters they visit, and how friendship can be a real strength to all.

Last week, I confessed to a not-so-nice game of Hide and Seek. Instead of relating redemptive tales now, to show how much I have matured, I've decided to tattle on my sister. Nyah-nyah.

I'm a big fan of Disneyland. (In fact, I'm wearing my Mickey Mouse sweatshirt as I compose this post.) I love the cleanliness of the park, the smiles on the cast members' faces, and the music throughout the lands. I love the fact that I can know Disneyland like the back of my hand, yet still see new details each time I visit.

We're several weeks into the new year now. How are you doing with your resolutions? If you have "slipped up," don't despair. Part of Hebrews 12:1 says, "let us run with patience the race that is set before us." No need to quit the race; just keep plugging along.

A few days ago, Debbie from Our Old Homestead invited me to a game of "Sunday Activity Tag." The topic reminds me of the papers elementary school children write each September: "What I Did This Summer." Fortunately for me, I only have to remember back to last Sunday, and my Sundays have basically the same routine each week. Sundays for me mean church and family time, and this Sunday followed the same pattern.

Thanks (again) for a sweet granddaughter.

Winter weather demands steaming bowls of hot soup. This recipe whips up in no time, with ingredients commonly found in the pantry.

My mom recently decided to order an Ancestry DNA test. She has spent the past 35 years or so researching family history, and she has a pretty good knowledge of where her ancestors lived. Still, she was curious to see what she would learn from the test.

In August of 2011, my sweet basset hound passed away unexpectedly at the veterinarian's office. Suddenly, I found myself dog-free for the first time in 19 years. This would just not do.
