Bits and Pieces

Ran the last load of dishes from Bible study/dinner last night--chili, cornbread, and layer cake with fluffy frosting and hibiscus jam filling.

Boys had Kraft Macaroni and Cheese that friends brought back from the States as a gift.

C4 packed his backpack to go to the village with Babushka.

Made chocolate chip cookies with chocolate chips that Carol sent us.

T7 cleaned my kitchen of his own initiative while I checked my e-mail.

We read more stories from D'Aulaires Book of Greek Myths.

Found a copy of The Greenleaf Guide to Famous Men of Greece, that I forgot we owned.

Received a good, long e-mail from my Dad.

E-mailed a friend about last night's news program about Gary Ezzo, which was aired in Charleston where he now lives.

Participated in a meeting planning a conference about cults.

My friend Sasha came over for dinner and a visit.

Prepared chicken & rice and spinach & mushrooms for dinner.

Instead of finishing up the "What Ezzo Says. . ." series tonight, I'm responding to comments on the previous posts. Join in!

I'm not sure why, but I love reading what people had for dinner. It always inspires me to go cook something yummy! My family thanks you in advance for a good dinner tonight! :)

That Greek myth book is good stuff, isn't it? I remember reading it when I was in the 5th grade; it sparked an interst in the ancient world that's led to my current PhD studies in ancient Mediterranean history. So...you never know what a book might do! ;)

I think the D'Aulaires also have a similar illustrated book of Norse myths...

And for the record, I love dinner-blogging too!

Wow! How cool!

We're studying Egypt and Greece this year (don't quite have the time/drive to add Rome to the ancient civ studies.) The boys are really getting into it, and I love how they ask questions about theology and the One True God after reading mythology and about the Greek gods.

They keep asking questions though, that I can't answer. Like, "Do Greeks still bury people with a coin to pay Charon?"

I love carm.org! I was just there today researching a new church I tried. I was relieved to see it wasn't on the cult list...LOL

You do so much, I'm so glad you're able to share your resources in so many outlets!

Not sure how I ended up on your blog, but couldn't resist chiming in on the D'aulaires book - that's what hooked me in to mythology, too, (in 4th or 5th grade!) and it came in handy in college as an art history major!

Thanks for your blog. Good stuff to read here!
