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 […]


Less is more……….

by Edie Wadsworth on October 28, 2008

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 […]


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 […]

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 […]

What a beautiful foggy morning……I love chilly foggy mornings.I talked this one (Caiti-16) into typing my Wednesday prayer this morning in exchange for bacon…..which she said tasted like dog treats…..I love turkey bacon.     And I love how fast she types….and I love foggy mornings.And I love the Lutheran prayer book: Wednesday morning prayer […]


Through the years…….

by Edie Wadsworth on October 14, 2008

It has always been challenging to unite our family together under one roof for any length of time….then to get us all dressed and maybe even smiling for a picture…..now that’s a miracle. Since I’m already mentally gearing up for the holidays….making menus,  thinking about placecards,  seating, decorations and the like,  I thought I’d show […]


The Stuff of Dreams……

by Edie Wadsworth on September 30, 2008

I’ve been tagged by Keli, so I’m supposed to share 7 things about myself and then tag 7 others.  I’m terrible at following rules and very technically challenged so forgive my ‘butcherin’  of this ‘taggin’ .   Without further adieu,  I give you 7 things from my dreams:  I start my dreamy day in ‘my’covered […]

Midday Bookclub marches on………

by Edie Wadsworth on September 27, 2008

This group of women is smart,  talented,  inspiring,   and just plain fun to be around.   Thus,  if you like to read classical literature….. and like to learn and be challenged……and like to be surrounded by strong,  opinionated,  sweet ladies…..then you should join us.    And if we’re too far away for you,  then […]

Dedicated to Jamie Knoxville- On my knees for ya!   The ‘Monday’ prayer from the Lutheran Prayer Book; Lord, in this morning hour I come boldly to Your throne of grace in full assurance that there I shall obtain mercy and find grace and help in time of trouble.  I need Your help and Your […]


Day of Reckoning……

by Edie Wadsworth on September 19, 2008

I woke this morning and knew today was gonna be the day.   I don’t want to do it…but it has to be done.   So,  I sheepishly, almost as if I was apologizing as I got on,  stepped on the scale. WHAAAAAAT?   How does this happen?   I haven’t gotten on in quite […]
