"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

A "Home-y" Post

My square swap afghan so far!
Just waiting on three more squares to arrive from
Nothing says "home" like a pot of soup and curling up with a soft blanket, hence the title of today's post.

Today is sunny, cool, and breezy, a welcome reprieve from the hot muggy days we've had of late.

Mr. B and I went for a walk this morning. It started with just taking the trash to the dumpster, but it was such a beautiful day that I decided to keep walking. We talked about the wind in the trees, picked flowers, laughed (for some reason, he thinks Lazy Susans are funny), and admired the wispy clouds in the blue ("boo") sky. Between the fresh air from our walk and then playing with bubbles ("buh-BUL") outside, Little B was ready for a nap half an hour early today.

My friend Jen recently had a baby girl, and today is my day to take over dinner for her family. So while B naps, I'm making a hearty butter bean soup accompanied by some yummy Italian bread to take to them this afternoon.
I used fresh herbs from our deck garden, and the scrumptious smells are wafting through our apartment tantalizingly. Good thing I made enough for us, too!
