Spooky mornings……..

by Edie Wadsworth on October 31, 2008

While I work on my country girl skills at photographing my new highlights which are slightly on the yellow side of ‘golden’,There are two little witches stirrin’ away at their witches brew….. …..and I wouldn’t eat that candy if I were you…‘cause that leaves more for me.   Happy Halloween!


Happy Reformation Day……

by Edie Wadsworth on October 31, 2008

On this day in 1517,   Martin Luther posted the 95 theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg Germany.   Number one on the list was this;  that the life of a christian should be a life of repentance.   When I was steeped in American Evangelicalism,  I can tell you that […]


On being thankful……

by Edie Wadsworth on October 30, 2008

1. anticipating  my Eight O’Clock coffee, finely ground just before it’s brewed with a healthy amount of real half and half.2. loving it when my 18 year old son swoops in for the air kiss.3. Sitting on the sofa, knitting, while my girls practice their reading and thinking that I am the luckiest mom in […]


Guess who else loves ya??!?!?!??!?

by Edie Wadsworth on October 29, 2008

Apparently I’m not the only one who loves you and wants to knit you a scarf.  Emme started knitting this on Monday and said, ‘Do you think the friends on your blog will like these colors?’ Oh how sweet!!  She’s knitting those little hands to the bone too.   Look how far she’s gotten in […]


Less is more……….

As I ponder the upcoming holidays and yearn for less commercialism in my life in general,  I love this song by Eddie Vedder taken from the Into the Wild soundtrack.  As you read the lyrics to the song “Society”  ,  look to the right and hit play.   Enjoy his sultry voice too!   Since […]


I ADORE mornings…….

by Edie Wadsworth on October 27, 2008

I don’t know how you spend your mornings, but I’m always conflicted about how best to spend this precious two hours to myself before anyone wakes up.   Should I continue with the painting doors and trim I started a while back?   Should I clean out the pantry?  Should I knit on my sweater […]


"You formed me in my mother’s womb……"

by Edie Wadsworth on October 26, 2008

The following excerpt is taken from an article written by Robert George, law professor at Princeton on the extreme pro-abortion views held by Barack Obama. Barack Obama is the most extreme pro-abortion candidate ever to seek the office of President of the United States. He is the most extreme pro-abortion member of the United States […]


Random photos from my week…..

First of all, thank you so much to Sandy who gave me this lovely blog award.   I feel so much bloggy love and I know you’d love her blog site.   She is very inspiring in all things home and such an encourager with her sweet comments.   Next, on the list, I decided […]


Speaking of Running…….

by Edie Wadsworth on October 24, 2008

I have a great idea.   Let’s train for a half marathon together.   It’s not as hard as  you think.   You run ~3days/week  3-4 miles each day.   Then,  on Saturdays, you increase your ‘long’ run from 3 miles to 12 miles over 12 weeks.   If you’ve never done it,  it’s amazing. […]


Braces, cake, and running………

by Edie Wadsworth on October 23, 2008

This one is highly anticipating the removal of braces….These two are watching Charlotte’s Web…..while these two exchange birthday hugs…and enjoy chocolate cake with buttercream icing……(recipe forthcoming)….and reuben style pasta…..the recipe which you can find here.    It is delectable! These are among the reasons why I often wonder why I went for that 3 mile […]


When wishes come true….

I’m joining Kristen’s Valentine Link Party…..’cause I really love to talk about this guy!If he were a rock star, he’d be Eddie Vedder.If he were a drink, he’d be scotch. If he were a restaurant, he’d be a sports bar.If he were a animal, he’d be a lion.If he were a state, he’d be Montana. […]

A Friday Bathroom Redo…….

by Edie Wadsworth on October 18, 2008

Our master bathroom is very roomy…..with a very small room in it where the toilette is located.   I think these were the only virgin walls left in my house.   Many of my walls in fact have had multiple different ‘partners’,  if ya know what I mean.   So, the fact that these particular […]

Is it the full-moon,  is it hormones,   do I have GAD/ADD/OCD/PTSD,  is it a midlife crisis, or just a plain funk?   Maybe I’m just in a funk.  I’m okay with that.   On the surface,  I have no reason to have issues.   But I do and I’m crabby and on the verge […]
