Hello to new readers, followers, and visitors, and a happen Lenten season to you all. This week I’m taking things slow and trying hard to ward off a cold. Lots of tea, echinacea and elderberry tinctures, bone broth soups and plenty of vitamins. There will probably be naps in my future, although more than anything I should probably wash the dishes and do some laundry. I’m doing my best to avoid sugar for my Lenten fast and combine those efforts with a new Bible study and some quiet time for prayer and reflection.

 We have President’s Day off, and we’re looking forward to bowling, going out to dinner for a late Valentine’s day date, and getting in a couple more episodes of House of Cards. What are you up to over the long weekend? Let me know, I’m always curious!

  1. Let’s see… bonfire with friends tonight, out for wings and a birthday tomorrow, and Sunday evening with our youth group kids. Otherwise, much rest, hopefully some sunshine, and a corner of the couch with Mr. Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises.
    Do you make your own bone broth? Any tips?
