Porch #84 * 4 March Somethings

a soft place to land
a calm weekend haven
a gentle pause from life's busyness
so we may experience
the tender lovingkindness of Jesus
as we do life together
in community


My sister & I remembered Mom's birthday at this lovely little tearoom ... decadent treats served fireside, topped with Marilyn's fabulous gift of story-telling, some quiet moments, a hefty portion of good memories, laughter, & a sprinkle of tears.


Lysa writes, 'I want to be the friend who comes alongside you with compassion to show you that it isn't unloving to set a boundary, & it isn't un-Christian to say goodbye.'   I couldn't agree more.


Flatten a bit of air-dry clay to make a 1.5" circle.  Add a bit of compost/potting soil & then a couple pinches of seeds Fold in half & squeeze into a ball.  Dip quickly in water, then roll in compost/potting soil again.  Dry & then store 'til you're ready to toss them in the area you want the flowers to grow!  

* I used compost & a combination of seeds I collected from our garden last fall mixed with the seed mix.  A 2.5 lb. container of clay & 1/4 lb. seed gave me about 70 seed bombs.  I hear you can use air-dry clay, kitty litter, wet shredded paper, or clay powder.  A messy, fun, outside, kid-friendly activity.


There's nothing like the first bite of your first lobster roll of the season ... & catching up on all the latest with a dear friend.  Don't forget the chocolate shake.

What are you loving, reading, learning, and eating these days?
