The Cloud of God’s Provision

February is a reminder that winter has finally arrived in Oklahoma. It always seems to be the coldest of the months. Yesterday was an ice rink, so we stayed home. More snow flurries and ice is expected. I'm trying to organize my thoughts as I look at my calendar. February 11th... How in the world? … Continue reading The Cloud of God’s Provision

Black Beans & Brunch

January is slow outside, so I seem to buzz inside. I have been following the "Clutter Free January" series on YouTube and find GREAT inspiration within these four walls. Our dishwasher broke the day after Christmas, so instead of running out to buy a new one, I embrace the evening dishes with a podcast playing … Continue reading Black Beans & Brunch

Praying Through the Calendar

Because I am up early on this beautiful Christmas morning, I decided to do a house sweep and pray through the New Year... Just the two of us this year, like many households in 2020. We did our celebrations on Christmas Eve and enjoyed a hot meal. Now, I am up early with a cup … Continue reading Praying Through the Calendar

“There be snow in these parts.”

This month has been quiet and uneventful for the most part which is so not how December usually goes. I like it. The house just always smells alive. Whether it be something in the kitchen, the aroma of the Christmas tree, or a candle flickering on the counter, there is something to be said about … Continue reading “There be snow in these parts.”

November Doozy

It wasn't a month of just putting things off, it was a month prepared for. October seemed to be busy. Buzzing about the garden to harvest the last of the veg, preparing for freezing temps, doing the last of the summery things, stocking the pantry and the freezer, ice storms, laundering blankets and pillows, hosting … Continue reading November Doozy

Buttermilk, Harvest, & Powdered Sugar

What a full month it has been… I have not even had time to sit down and write! So many good memories were made, family visits, places traveled, baked goods in full swing, and now I sit in my reading chair contemplating this season in the middle of an ice storm. I had about a … Continue reading Buttermilk, Harvest, & Powdered Sugar

Christmas in October

Yes, that's what we did during a pandemic. We celebrated all the Holidays coming up before things get worse. I even decorated. I put up our tree and decorated for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. We had a full house hosting my "in loves" for the past two weeks. I loved every minute. Movies, … Continue reading Christmas in October

Goodbye, Summer

Fall has officially arrived. Many evenings are dipping into the 40's and the tips of trees are changing. Fall came early this year. Oklahoma temps usually stay balmy through October, but this year is different... in more ways than one. I am still enjoying picnics in the front lawn during my lunch break. By noon, … Continue reading Goodbye, Summer

Overlanding: Done Waiting

"Today is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad!" Waiting. People spend a lot of time waiting in their lives. Waiting in line. Waiting on the phone. Waiting for pick up... But even deeper... Waiting on the Lord. Waiting for a plan to happen. Waiting for answers. Waiting for … Continue reading Overlanding: Done Waiting

Fall Beginnings & Summer Harvest

The first day of fall already? Well, the temps are regularly dropping into the 50's every night and the fog has settled over the prairies. Although these fall days don't have the vibrancy of fall in New England, Oklahoma has its own kind of fall flare and beauty. I am just beginning to see the … Continue reading Fall Beginnings & Summer Harvest
