October ushers in our fall season and a few new changes.
We say good-bye to the garden.
Just a handful of carrots and lots of potatoes left to be pulled.
And a few red peppers which, as I found out this afternoon, are of the VERY HOT variety!!
(Quick, grab the milk, my mouth is burning!!)
I must show you this picture taken at the beginning of August. . .
This is one of SEVERAL buckets of basil which fragrantly descended onto my kitchen
counter the last few months. Mr. E. loves pesto so we froze the leaves of basil
and I simply take them out of the bag, wash them, place them in the food processor
and add a handful of walnuts, a few cloves of garlic, parmesan cheese, olive oil. . .
and waalaa!! fresh pesto is ready to add to cooked pasta. Yum!!
Little A is such a hoot! She had to find her "glubs" (gloves), just like daddy, before
she could go "work" outside.
A new calendar decorates the wall in our dining/school room.
I ordered this from rainbowresource.com. A wonderful home school website with
endless resources at very reasonable prices.
The highlight of the past week was our New Beginnings banquet
for our new local pregnancy resource center.
I was part of the banquet committee and truly felt blessed to witness
God's hand in orchestrating such a powerful and exciting evening.
Beautiful flowers, food, and delectable dessert favors graced the tables.
The highlight was hearing personal testimony's from several women who had
been led to seek out a pregnancy center during a time of crisis in their lives. The
centers serve as so much more than helping both women and men through their
immediate time of crisis. Many years later, these women are still involved by coming
alongside other women and being a part of the center bible studies. Many people
in our community will be blessed, in ways that God only knows, by the start of this
new pregnancy resource center in our area.
