Plate Update: Tea, the Post Office, and Brainstorming

I’ve gotta hand it to September. It’s definitely my favorite month of the year. ๐Ÿ˜€ Hereโ€™s a quick update on what I did last month. This full plate included lots of tea and hot chocolate to celebrate this new season. ๐Ÿ˜‰ (Wait, beverages don’t go on a plate… Does that count?) ๐Ÿ˜€ (I’d apologize for … More Plate Update: Tea, the Post Office, and Brainstorming

Family Camp!

Disclaimer: this is not Monday. But who doesn’t like an extra post? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Last week, I got to go camping with my family and church family! I enjoyed everything about it–the weather, the junk food (*innocent face*), the games, the bonfire, and the sermons all about the Gospel and suffering. It was also really special … More Family Camp!

All the Happy Things

If you read this blog regularly, you may have noticed that I haven’t been sticking to my blog schedule perfectly the last few weeks. You also may have noticed that my posts are being published at weird hours. So what has regrettably pushed blogging, writing, emailing, reviewing, breathing, and such aside? ๐Ÿ˜‰ COLLEGE. Homework abounds … More All the Happy Things

Plate Update: Quilting, the Galaxy, and School

Postponing a Post

Hello, folks!!! School this week has been more crazy than I could have ever imagined! Beside getting everything worked out with schedules, finding the right class at the right time (“I have walked five hundred miles…”), remembering to eat, and holding my head during indoctrination class, I’m learning TIME MANAGEMENT! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m postponing today’s post … More Postponing a Post

First Day

Never let two authors loose in the back-to-school supplies section. It’s dangerous. Seriously, my sister Perry Elisabeth and I claim we nearly bought everything. ๐Ÿ˜€ We were really there to pick up a few things for my siblings and my college classes (which started today *scared face*), but of course we had to ooh and … More First Day

Plate Update: Proofreading, Espionage, and Camp Again

June, how I love you and hate you! You were quite too busy for my liking, but extra exciting too–so you can stay on the calendar this year. (You know something’s wrong when you start talking to your calendar.) ๐Ÿ˜€ It doesnโ€™t feel quite fair to do the last monthโ€™s update on itโ€™s very last … More Plate Update: Proofreading, Espionage, and Camp Again

Plate Update: Edward Bear, Beta-Readers, and Arrows

For some reason, for the last few weeks of May I never knew what day it was. Quite the confusingly busy month, but several amazing things have happened! It doesn’t feel quite fair to do the last month’s update on it’s very last day, but that’s just how the blogging schedule worked out. ๐Ÿ˜› Hereโ€™s … More Plate Update: Edward Bear, Beta-Readers, and Arrows

Thorns

The other night, I had myself pretty stressed out. Everything I needed to do, all the tiny, forgotten details, and the stacks of correspondence seemed to be closing in on me. Each second, I remembered two more things. Last Sunday’s sermon was on the parable of the Sower. (And I got to read the Mark … More Thorns
