Evidentially I’m in good company; and company that I esteem. Henrietta Franklin seems to have a distaste for Volume 5 as well. I have a quote from her … Continue reading On Completing Volume 5
Our Charlotte Mason Book Study has completed Volume 5. This was an accomplishment in itself, but was special for me because this Charlotte Mason Book Study has now read all six volumes. We began reading the summer of 2014 at a park. While the children played, we discussed. We read the entire volume that summer. Since then, we slowed the pace, moved to an evening … Continue reading A Missionary Anniversary

Wonderful smells rose from the kitchen as I baked scones, muffins, and cookies. Scones waiting to go into the oven. Baked scones cooling for their glaze. Assembling the Berry Muffins, a gluten free, egg free, and dairy free treat with fresh … Continue reading Morning Conversations Behind the Scenes Prep

There was never any pressure for me to hurry, but I must never make a mistake. In those days a craftsman took a real pride in his work. – George E. Johnson in The Nebraskan by George E. Johnson II … Continue reading May 15, 2019. No hurry, no mistakes.
