A sample of things going on around here...

It seems like those who haven't blogged in a while have come out of hiding, so I figure I would too. Here's a sample of what has been going on around here:

I have started doing the 8 minutes (more like 12) in the morning super easy workout by Jorge Cruise (just the workout, not the other components). I got a copy from the library last week. Given that I can't seem to fit anything else in, I thought I'd give it a try. I'll blog about it once I have a chance.

I'm actually reading something other than cookbooks and blogs. I'm reading Having a Mary Spirit, by Joanna Weaver. God has been teaching me a lot in the last few years about walking in the Spirit. It was so refreshing to hear (I heard her on the radio first) someone else articulate some things I have been learning. I'm actually going through it with my MIL and SIL. I've also been reading through Ezekiel with my husband. Recurring themes I have noted so far are God's justice, mercy and grace.

Speaking of cookbooks, I found out this week that I'm in Cook's Illustrated magazine in the March/April issue. Some time last year I didn't have anything to line my cookies in my toaster oven. That's when I thought of using paper muffin liners. Sure it would work for regular ovens too. Anyway, I'm glad I submitted that idea to them then because I had TOTALLY forgotten about it. As a matter of fact, I had trouble finding my tip because I didn't even remember what it was about. Well, I won a year's free subscription because they published my tip. I have always intended to post about CI (I posted a review of one of their cookbooks last year), and now that I have the monthly inspiration, that post may actually materialize.

Oh, and Cafe and Play also won startup money from the Intuit Just Start Competition. Way to go!

Of course, there is more, but I still have dishes to do. So until next time...
