Memorial Weekend

Memorial Weekend Visitors

Memorial weekend has been wonderful. Unfortunately Mr. Kummerow didn't have off on Monday (snow day make up). But we managed to enjoy ourselves all the same. I had been looking forward to this weekend for several weeks. Our good friends Andy and Amber visited on Saturday night. Although I have only spent a few days ever in the company of Andy and Amber, I feel a supernatural kindred to them. They are beautiful, inside and out, because God's light shines right through them. They are refreshing and fun and conversation flows freely and they are also fans of board games and cards!

So we spent the beginning of their visit showing them around Race City... you know the usual points of interest: downtown (we took a nice walk, drank a witchdoctor, ran into church friends), the Point (visited Emily's store AKA the Point General Store, bought some yummy pretzel bread and gawked at all the mansions), showed them Alex's school, drove down Lakeside Park to look at the many race teams and rounded our way back home.

I cooked a marvelous vegan lasagna for dinner (if I do say so myself!). I was torn whether I should cook normal food- as in meat which is not normal in my house at all! Or should I represent my new lifestyle with a full out vegan feast? Vegan feast it is. And I just prayed they would not judge me and rather embrace it. So the lasagna was super easy and I just made it up as I went. Whole wheat noodles, broccoli, kale, tomatoes, mushrooms, vegan mozzarella cheese and remember that tahini-marinara sauce I was raving about last week...well yes, it was certainly the lead character in my lasagna. I mixed together a greek salad and served our meal with the pretzel bread. It received rave reviews all around...let's just hope they weren't just being nice!












Gardening


I have been working hard lately in my garden the last few weeks! This is my first garden ever and it is so cool to see the good Lord's handy work. Every day I walk outside and I am just amazed at these plants! The vegetables just keep getting bigger and bigger! I am so excited to start munching away at them! Too bad I will be on the "Great mid-American Road Trip" during most of the harvest.
