The site is back up with ALL the posts, yay! You might not have noticed, but some of the recent posts and comments disappeared this week, causing me to have a minor freak out. The site has been getting so much traffic (thank you for sharing posts!) that I had to switch over to a bigger host that could handle all that traffic. But there were a couple of glitches in the process and I’m sorry you couldn’t access some of the recent posts. Should all be working now!
And since the site was down I wasn’t able to share that I wrote a piece for Kitchen Stewardship on gluten-free cooking survival this week. Yay alternative flours!
The Feast of Our Lady of La Leche
We are headed to St. Augustine today to celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of La Leche tomorrow. I love St. Augustine. We visited on our honeymoon and then went back for our sixth anniversary (super cute baby Lucy pictures, folks). Anyhow, I’m thrilled to be going back and I would love to prayer for your intentions at the Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche, especially for those suffering from infertility or struggling with nursing troubles. You can leave a comment or email me privately (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Quotable Munchkins:
“Fighting is not a fun game.” – Lucy (age 2)
Benjamin, expert chicken catcher. Seriously, he’s lightning fast when one of the little stinkers escapes the coop.
I love overhearing the big kids talking in their room when they’re supposed to be sleeping. Last night it was Benjamin teaching Lucy about zombies.
Benjamin: “They’re kind of like dead aliens that come back to life. But it doesn’t really happen. I mean if someone was actually brought back to life…like a miracle…they wouldn’t be a zombie. Zombie’s aren’t real. They’re just dead guys moving’ around, not exactly good or bad, but anyhow, they’re just made up so you don’t have to worry about them.”
Lucy: “When I die, I won’t be a zombie.”
Benjamin: “Yeah, I think you’ve got the idea now, Lucy.”
As if she could ever be a zombie. What a sweetie pie.
