Around Our Neck of the Woods Last Weekend

 1. a boy in his boots.  2. a kitten and the girl who changes the kitten's name everyday.  3. the boy and the kitten.4. handpicked flowers.  5. one fierce mama Welsummer chicken  6. eggs o'plenty.  7. one crazy dog named Jet, who tangles his runner around anything on the porch and drags it into the yard,on the regular.  Including a rod iron chair (and once, a picnic table).  What good is a watchdog if he's all tangled up?

It was a long, slow weekend, and the kids and I didn't even leave the house till today.  Partially because I wanted to be conservative on gas, and mainly because staying home and being nice and cozy are the best parts of this time of year.  I watched two movies--Machine Gun Preacher--it came highly recommended by Husband who watched it Friday night while I...I'm not sure what I was doing, so I watched it on Saturday while he was working.  It was raw and heart-wrenching, and is a true story that people need to know.  Most people have heard of KONY 2012, but not ex-gang biker turned preacher/African child defender, Sam Childers.  An excellent flick.  To make this weekend truly out of the ordinary, I watched another movie with Husband that very same day called, People Like Us.  Two movies in one weekend, is big deal for me, while two movies in one day is a miracle!  The relaxation was just what I needed.

Am I the only person who feels like Monday is makeup day for the weekend?  Man.  My family knows how to turn a house upside down, and it's always during the weekend that the most destruction takes place.  

Did you catch the chili recipe I posted?  It is my favorite chili recipe by far, and we ate it both Friday and Saturday.  Leftovers sure make a girl happy!
I hope to post another favorite soup/stew recipe soon.

Hope your weekend was swell!

ohh, so glad you got to see Machine Gun Preacher. SUCH a good movie. raw and real and honest. i feel like the rough-around-the-edges parts of Christianity are so often covered up by the church. i feel like his roughness made him so much more real, and because of that, he was able to lead people and change lives.

sounds like such a much-deserved, relaxing weekend:) i love the pictures.

Charla--yes! i couldn't agree more. it was such an inspiring story, and it's amazing that he Childers is willing to lay his life down, quite literally, each day. hope you had a fantastic weekend as well. :)

How did I miss this one? More lovely pictures; I can picture your yard most splendidly through your photos. Love to all!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
