Another Boring Day

I attended a Bible study this a.m. and had a lovely time with the ladies as we discussed I Peter. We'll meet her next week as I have an Air Conditioner - a real drawing card in Misawa this time of year. ::snort::  Come to think of it, I could probably do some creative evangelism with the AC about now. 

I spent the afternoon - until like 5:30 - play "executive assistant" to a deputy wing chaplain. ::wink:: We are trying to "climb back into the saddle" after our extended absence. I've been joking that I'm at least trying to climb back on the horse...but I think we're both feeling by now like we need to FIND THE SILLY HORSE before we can attempt to get back in the saddle and ride.  Not sure HOW we were doing all we were doing....and taking a long, hard look at what I put back on the plate. ::grin::

How did it get to be August 1st already? I seemed to have lost most of June and all of July. How did the "dog days of summer" become the "start of school" month?

In other news I made it through another vegan day - this isn't so terrible....though I need to find hearty meals for Michael to eat....it surely does take more time in the kitchen which brings us back to slowing down.....so I can live the way I desire, parent the way I desire, eat the way I need to eat, have time to work out....going really, really slow at each new commitment....and seeing where God would set the boundaries on the old commitments. Nothing major - just good for a recovering workaholic  ministryaholic to evaluate every few months.

Choosing Joy!

For the vegan dishes try Wholefoodsmarket.com. A lot of their recipes are plant based. For cheese you could do Almond Cheese or rice, not sure if they have that in Japan though. Quinoa, beans, onions, asparagus, garlic, cooked in veggie broth is yummy.
Hope that helps!
