disappointed

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

I have been enjoying my new SP activity tracker emoticon until today. For some reason my steps stopped being recorded after about 11:20PM and so my trying to get to 10,000 before midnight did not happen. Is 12:00 AM the cut off or 11:30 PM for the next day to begin? emoticon The tracker is still lighting up when tapped and the USB is on green as well. The time for each sync is given, but without a change in the number of steps, even though I've been walking... emoticon

heavenly mindedness...

Monday, October 20, 2014

The drive to Concord for the morning worship gathering was lovely...even with the grey chill of the day...

Bouquets of trees shown as a ray of sunlight touched them...

Men, women and young people brought in pots...

baskets...

and dishes...

to set aside for the fellowship meal to come. After opening prayer, we sang the old hymn. "Great is Thy faithfulness, O GOD, my Father."... followed by new spiritual songs, "O GOD, my Joy!"and "Speak, O LORD". Psalm 10, Colossians 3:1-4 and Philippians 3:7-4:1 were the Bible scriptures that laid the foundation for the message "Heavenly Mindedness"...

Yes, Oliver Wendell Holmes said...

but, perhaps we have thrown away the truth...our union with Jesus Christ...

as we've sought to help those around us in our own strength and power...

Our daily challenge is to fix the eyes of our hearts and the ears of our minds on Christ as we love and minister...

spring in fall...

Saturday, October 18, 2014

Yesterday's luncheon with our grand-nephew was lots of fun, but way too short! Here are our soup and salad leftovers for today and Monday...

The Jerusalem artichoke tubers, just given us by a friend, looked small, but the internet articles affirmed that those are the ones to plant. So last night I took our long-handled cultivator ...

and "dug in" the composting material from the containers we had used for growing veggies this year...

As it was getting late, I waited until this morning to spread out the tubers...

and then plant each of the five about 5" deep. This is an experiment in the little plot between the Lane and our driveway that gets lots of sun and can handle tall plants. We're hoping to see these flowers next summer and then harvest the tubers to eat...

SPAT: 10,101 steps
Stuff sorting: my recipe cupboard cleaned out of all the newpaper clippings and "free" recipes. I recognize that I will not be using them. I did keep eveything having to do with holiday cooking, however... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon... emoticon

vegetable focus

Friday, October 17, 2014

A grand-nephew is coming for a visit today on his way from graduate school in Vermont to something going on in Massachusetts. We always look forward to being stirred up by his insights and questions. Apparently in the past months he has become a vegetarian...

(or is it a vegan...must get that clarified)...

Since he will be here for luncheon, think I'll pick some kale from our garden...

cut it up...

start my cast iron fry pan...

with a little olive oil...

add chopped onions...

and minced garlic...

maybe some red pepper cut in small strips...

saute them...

fill the pan with cider and perhaps a touch of liquid aminos...

to heat up and then wilt down the kale...

Completing the meal with these ought to add enough variety: breads, hummus and veggies...

salsa and blue chips, sans lady bug!...

and a garden salad...

and sprinklings of roasted nuts...

Note: We aren't vegetarians/vegans, so will have yesterday's collard soup with bacon ready for DH just in case emoticon

YAY veggies!
oops..forgot the P.S.
SPAT 12,818 steps (how did that happen?) emoticon
stuff sorting: none emoticon
