Two Years and Two Months
Esther's new thing is taking her old purse full of uncracked hazelnuts and saying "These are my own weapons. Come on Anna, let's go face Goliath" - based off lines from her David and Goliath story book. So far she hasn't figured out what a sling is and I don't plan to show her anytime soon :)
I've been trying to do some reading - especially when I'm up in the middle of the night...I recently read a really interesting book on the "candy bomber" of the Berlin Air Lift, something I really didn't know much about, and "100 Christian Women who Changed the 20th Century" - It covered a very broad spectrum, so I wouldn't say all the ladies changed things for the better, nonetheless, there were a lot of great stories and was inspiring.
I've also been trying to use up our winter squash before it goes bad, so I tried out "stuffed acorn squash" - very good, "butternut squash soup" - not good at all, squash fries, and pumpkin chip drops, as well as a recipe for garlic spaghetti, Cajun cabbage, and shredded beef sandwiches.
At church we've had several special speakers this winter - an evangelist who did a "one-day revival", a couple who partners with a national-led ministry in India, and a speaker from Creation Ministries International who did a great job! We really enjoyed visiting with all of them.
I'm hardly ever in town on the first Saturday of the month, but I was yesterday and had fun going to Goodwill to do some summer clothes shopping. Aaron did a funeral for a man who was a WW2 veteran and who knew Sgt. York. We met a family here who used to go to the same church that Aaron was saved in. I came down with the flu one day this week - as I was in the line to check out my groceries...Anyway, Hope you all have a great week!
