Lest I Forget…

…what wonderful evenings we’ve had.


Dear announced he was making a Valentine’s Day meal. He surprised me with the lovely tulips and card on Sunday morning and then put together a wonderful meal on Monday night with the help of our daughter Katie. Shortly after the meal the power went out because of high winds that knocked down a tree onto power lines. We were without power the rest of the evening so we gathered up some candles and got together in the living room where Katie read to us from The Bird in the Tree by Elizabeth Goudge.


We’ve come full circle. Now our youngest is reading to us. She said it felt so Jane Austenish…reading by candlelight.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. It is indeed Jane Austen-ish to read by the candlelight.
    “We’ve come full circle. Now our youngest is reading to us.” — there’s yet hope for me then. 🙂 I have read the same Thomas the Train book 5 times today!!! 😉

  2. A sweet memory making time together. Likely the last one your husband will have where he can be with both his favorite girls for Valentine.

  3. oh wow! It’s a small cyber-world!!!

    a facebook friend who I met through a blog friend somehow or another found Mennonite Girls can Cook and was posting links on facebook to one of YOUR recipes!!!!
