The sun came out and the layers came off. Whilst killing time this morn, I ended up in the red light district. A few of the ladies displaying their offerings in the windows. Ended up back there later in the arvo as well as a wander thru the blue light area. Whole different vibe and […]
I really couldn’t wait to start writing about Thailand. Thinking about it now, traveling there has influenced my current lifestyle more than any other trip. I will explain how in my future posts, since there is a lot to write about almost four weeks in Thailand. It’s been a year and a half since I […]
Yes, it’s time for a new recipe! While the ‘new’ in creations can be doubted here, the fact that there’s an endless variety of burgers out there made me bold enough to claim this to be my own. If you dare to disagree: good food needs to be shared. It may not be your classic […]

Today, I am leaving for a two month journey. Although I’m not sure where it will end, it starts in Paris, to Luxembourg, then to Dijon where I’ll settle in for a month at the University of Burgundy. Sitting in the airport, I am forced to contemplate and be grateful for all of the moments, […]
Day 7 In The Holy Land Why are you here? That’s the question Pastor Sieg Johnson asked our tour group early on in our Holy Land Trip. We were on a boat cruise on The Sea Of Galilee at the time. Then, he asked us the same question again on the last day of our […]
As you all know already I am a huge sweet tooth and an even bigger snacker. If snacking was a hobby it would definitely be mine. My biggest time to snack is when I come home from work. Usually, this is my down time where I do some writing, journaling or just laze around watching […]
The city we are going to today is not the one listed on our day sheet and I don’t remember the name of the right one. We have a nice group to travel with. All are friendly and we have meshed well. This is especially important in such tight quarters that everyone get along. We’ve […]
A Sunday night snack was a longstanding childhood tradition. After church, we’d pile into our wood paneled Dodge Caravan (didn’t everyone have one of those at some point?) and head to McDonald’s for gigantic vanilla cones and salty fries. Traditions die hard so now Chris and I find ourselves looking forward to an after church treat each week. Our current favorite spots are below.
This week’s outfit post again features pictures by the ever-talented Abbi King (@afolkbee). Sunny skies are a rare occasion in Edinburgh, and usually if they’re there, you don’t know they’re coming. It’s really unusual for me to be able to dress for good weather, but every once in awhile a few days of sun come along […]

Climate Change. You can’t read the news anymore without hearing about it one way or another. Scientists are telling us that we are in a state of crisis and only large-scale policy changes will save the planet. I don’t know about you, but it can feel very overwhelming. My follow-up question is always, “Well, what […]

Camilla offered her driveway for my visit to the Grace Note Singers in Providence, RI. She and her husband built out a camper van and were excited to host another van camper. Camilla is a musician who plays piano (and dances with) Contra Dancers and also sings in other choirs besides Threshold. I was excited […]
I love when my curry has these three main ingredients POTATO, PEAS, CARROTS….
Below is a transcript of the video. Narrator: It's like they have magical powers. When the weather warms up, the fruit flies just appear. From nothing. Next to the fruit bowl, close to the trash, everywhere. And once they arrive, they are determined to stay, no matter how many they crush, crush or grab. Now, […]
