Still Kickin'

Just thought I'd pop in momentarily to say that we're still alive and kicking.

I didn't plan to take a blogging break. It just happened.

We're attempting to make the most of these last fleeting summer moments before school begins.

We've been doing lots and having fun. Beach, birthdays, swim meets, swimming in the dark, hiking, geocaching...

Right now, I'm tired and grouchy.

It's hot and humid again. Thunderstorms rolling all around and risk of yet more tornadoes. We were in Goderich less than 1.5 hours before their pretty little town was ruined by a tornado. I'm sitting outside catching the breeze and watching the lightning. Cool! Oh and here comes the rain! Time to go in!

I had my head examined this week. (Yep, it's as I suspected. I'm crazy ;o)). I go for an MRI in a couple weeks to confirm it -- or not.

I had part of my face cut open today. He hit an artery. Ever have your ear pool with blood? Really weird!

We've been baking this delicious bread. I LOVE bread! I LOVE making bread! There's something almost meditative about it. I think I'll make some more tomorrow....

Well that's life in a nutshell. Hopefully I'll be back sometime in September...

Be blessed!


  1. Hi Deborah!

    I'm so glad you decided to post! Even if it was very short. It still gave me a quick glimpse into your life, and that you're all doing well. I'm sorry to hear about Goderich, I'll be praying for the people. (going to click on the link after this) I'm also sorry to hear about the your artery. I hope it wasn't too painful, and the MRI goes well.

    We start school next Monday (August 29th) and I hope your last weeks of summer are fun, go smoothly, and relatively slow.

    Blessings and ((Hugs)),

    P.S. I won't be able to stop by as often, now that I'm headed back to school, BUT I will as often as possible.

  2. You've been on my mind. Glad your silence was the enjoyment of summer!

    Yikes! How's your head/face doing??? And what's the MRI for?


  3. Been thinking of you and so its great to hear what you're up to! Blessings as you start school and another new transition into school routines! We're hunkering down here for the hurricane coming. Blessings!

  4. Ha!! Okay if your going to do a short post you need to at least explain a little more lol you got your head cut open and had and MRI!! don't leave us hanging .....hopefully that was not to bad and your doing ok....will be praying ...enjoy the rest of your summer Love Heather

  5. You are a busy bee! Cheering for you!

  6. Wow! Your life really has been crazy of late. Slow down a little so you don't completely wear yourself out. I hope all is well with your MRI. Take care!

  7. Deborah,

    I have been thinking about you a great deal.
    Let me know if I can help out in any way.
    I will be calling you soon my friend.

    Love you,

  8. You are so matter of fact about important issues. I suspect you are on survival mode.

    Know I truly care and my prayers are lifting you up to His throne room of grace right this very moment.

  9. Glad to hear from you--I've been wondering where you were! I'm tired and grumpy, too--school has started, and that always wears everybody out. You've had an exciting time of it lately, sounds like. Tell us more.


  10. Glad to hear you are all doing well, minus the hitting the artery part. I've been thinking about you! Wow... you were close to the tornado, so glad you were not there when it hit.

    We had quite the t-storm pass over us last night...

    Enjoy the last days of summer before school begins.

  11. Hi Deborah,
    Love the way you sandwiched the head slicing and ear bleeding between thunderstorms and meditative bread baking! Which btw, sounds like a cool name for a new cookbook.
    Take care of yourself, my friend!

  12. Enjoy your last few summery days, deborah!! And take a few extra minutes to mend... you! And yes... I completely agree-- there's something wonderfully delicious AND meditative about freshly baked bread!!

  13. I think you nutshelled it pretty well!!

    Blessings, Debbie

  14. Gee Deborah, you really left us hanging! Tornadoes, MRI's,and arteries... and no posts!

    Praying all is well and looking forward to hearing from you,


  15. Miss hearing from you! I just finished my first week of school. Hope adjustments, and the rest of your summer is going well.

    Can't wait to hear from you!

    You're ALL in my prayers,


Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I love to hear from my readers!
