March happenings

We've been enjoying yummy, simple suppers most nights. These meals are the most "doable" in this season for us, so I plan for them. We just had the Sweet Soy Chicken and Rice from The Family Flavor—those green onions make it taste so fresh.  While we're on the subject, I can't recommend this cookbook enough. So many of the meals are simple, fairly quick to prepare, and they don't require obscure ingredients.

I finished knitting my Lila sweater! This is my first "successful" sweater, in fit, style, color, all of it. I've learned that my knitting time is best spent making things that are simple, classic, well-fitting, and neutral. And Lila fits all the criteria. I took some quick photos with my phone, but I'll write a full post about the sweater soon after I get some better photos of me wearing it.

Eating doughnuts, just because. Today, I went on a "doughtnut-date" with a friend (That other reason doughnuts happen: one of the best doughnut places in our area is only ten minutes from us). Question: Do you spell it "doughnut" or "donut"? I prefer the former, since it seems a little more literal, but I think I might be in the minority? I've thought about this a lot, actually ;)

Nicholas and I have gotten into the rhythm of working together at the table on a regular basis. I love it. And I've started a new Bible study! A part of the study involves writing out all of 1 and 2 Thessalonians, and writing things out is the best way for my to retain truth, so I'm excited about that.

And, I'm leaving tomorrow for Minnesota to see one of my closest friends get married. It will be a wonderful weekend, and I can't wait to see what a beautiful bride you'll be, Lauren!

Life Lately, mid-June 2020

After an extended break from writing, it feels more natural to ease back into it with a list-based post. I've missed writing! And for the time being, as always, I feel most qualified to write about what I know about, and that's our little life.  Here are bits and pieces of just that:
