This Week’s Miscellany: Vol. 28

Share on FacebookPin on PinterestTweet about this on TwitterEmail this to someoneShare on Google+

It’s been quiet at Carrots this week. Nutcracker rehearsals are in full swing, I’ve been subbing some ballet classes I usually don’t teach, and season 2 of Sherlock was finally available on Netflix instant. I’m feeling a little behind on everything.

Coming Up in the Liturgical Year: Michaelmas on Saturday! St. Therese of Lisieux’s Day on October 1st and the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi on October 4th. (Great book list of St. Francis related books by Elizabeth Foss found here.)

In the Garden:

Microgreens! Daniel’s been adding them as a garnish whenever he makes his fancy dishes.

Peppers are so pretty (and yes, it’s almost October and we’re still growing them in Florida).

The Quotable Benjamin:

(Benjamin Potter)

“Does ‘bitter’ taste like an ol’ skunk drinking coffee in skunkland?”

“Benjamin knows what Benjamin gets.”

“How did you get so cute, Benjamin?” “Well, it’s just how Jesus made me!”

“Hey! Look at this book about pirates!” (It was actually a book with George Washington in the cover).

Ebook Deals:

If you haven’t gotten yourself a copy of Β my friend Stephanie’s eCookbook of Slow Cooker Freezer Meals, now is a great time to do it because in October a new revised edition is coming out and the price will jump from $5.99 to $9.99. So now is your last chance to get a copy at the $5.99 price! You can read my post about how this cookbook has made our evenings so much more relaxed because dinner is ready in the slow cooker and there’s no last minute scramble at the end of the day.

Stephanie also just released a FREE ebook about conception, pregnancy, and post partum: From Maiden to Mother, you might want to check out. I’m even featured in the “advice from other bloggers” section πŸ™‚

Instagrams Worth Sharing: (I’m carrotsformichaelmas on IG if you want to follow me)

I love this sneaky little pirate.

Happy Friday! I hope your weekend is lovely πŸ™‚

    Ben came up stairs last night to ask me if I knew season 2 was on netflix… I told him yes and he looked so dejected that I hadn’t shared this with him sooner! =D

    Have a wonderful Michaelmas – I “lucked out” and Henry got a cold that’s keeping me home from working today so looks like I’ll have plenty of time to get stuff together for our celebration tonight!

    Haley, just a quick question…I got Stephanie’s cookbook when it first came out (love it!) Any new stuff (should I get it again) or has it just been tweaked a little?
    I love your blog…I can’t tell you how many times you have given me a little bit of sunshine at just the right moment. Thank you for what you do, and may God continue to bless you and your beautiful family!

      Jen, Stephanie is adding several new recipes as well as giving the cookbook a new “look.” I haven’t seen the new copy yet but I’ll probably write up a little review of it when it comes out to help readers decide if they want to purchase the new edition.

      Thanks for your encouragement! πŸ™‚
