To quote my sister Kris

She wrote "Ok, end the pity party and update your blog!" on my facebook page yesterday.

Alright then.

I'm over it. for now.

Thank you all for the encouraging comments on my last post.

A few things I know:

I have been blessed with amazing people in my life.

I will always have my friends, no matter where I am.

I am where I am because God has placed me here.

I can choose to be happy.

Vitamins really help.

So, on with life I go.

Now the random things of life.
Because I know that's what you all come here looking for.

It's spring break here.
We have snow. Lots of it.
There is likely close to four feet in our backyard and more on the way.
It's spring break here.
I should take pictures of all the snow.

Ben had a friend sleep over last night.
It's a friend that I have a very low tolerance for.
Last night I overheard Ben and his friend in a heated discussion.
It was a creation vs. evolution discussion.
Ben had his Bible out and was reading from Genesis.
He was rock solid.
I love that kid.

We signed back up for
Full Circle Farms.
We had used the service in Kotzebue, but hadn't signed back up since we'd moved here.
They offer a CSA program that delivers organic produce here to bush Alaska.
It was so fun getting our first box of yummy stuff and this week we get another!

Tonight Cooper read a book to me.
Well, most of a book anyway.
It was Danny and the Dinosaur.
He did such a good job!
It's hard to believe that just last fall he could barely recognize his letters.
I love that kid too!

Remember back here, I had decided to join a "read through the Bible in a year" group.
I quit.
It's okay.
I am not legalistic so I have no guilt in letting this go.
Our church recently started a Beth Moore study and I really felt like that was where I needed to be right now.
I am also trying to get through the Love Dare.
The Love Dare is a 40 day challenge. It will take me much longer than that.
Those two things are important to me right now.
Some year I'll read through the Bible.
Just not this year.

And that's all she wrote tonight.

I am wearing my spectacles and still had to bring it up to 150%. That's better Trish. Spring is coming, the dark days will pass. Can you garden? Find out what you can grow in your growing season, and plant it right away (after the thaw.)There is so much joy in eating your own food. I have tiny little garden people who eat out of my gardens all summer long. They even pull weeds and plant seeds for me! Love you, Chelle.
