A Blessed Palm Sunday to You!
"They brought it to Jesus, threw their cloaks on the colt and put Jesus on it. As He went along, people spread their cloaks on the road." "When He came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully ...

Please Allow Me to Introduce You: "The Vegan Version"
And speaking of Julie and Julia , we watched it again last week. It was the first time my girls had seen it and it was so fun to share it with them. What a good movie! I don't know if Julia Child was as exuberant about life as Meryl Streep was in portraying...

Watching in March
  Daylight Saving time is upon us! Aaaah! I LOVE Daylight Saving time. Being an early riser and lover of mornings, I am never bothered by the "loss" of the one hour. I love the extra-long light for the days. Our weather is matching the time change; we'll be...

March Reads 2015
 Good Monday morning to you! I can hardly believe that it's almost time to flip the calendar page again. Is that what happens throughout the year here in the Upper Midwest- the year starts out slow just like an engine trying to start in the cold and then pi...

About Towns :: March 27, 2015
Can you believe we went from this: to this: overnight? Par for the course in Minnesota though. Yes, buds are wanting to bloom around here, but we always end up with some lingering snowy days before we go all glowy-green around here. Thankfully, it's mostly ...

Cooking From My Cookbooks
Do you have a shelf like this at home? Actually I am aware that many of you have probably have more than one shelf like this, right? I do have a few other cookbooks in another cabinet, books that I use more rarely. But I already know what Marie Kondo would ...

Easy Vegan Peach Cobbler
It really is surprising how a body adapts to the cold. As we were leaving this morning at 9:30 to go to  Eve's cooking class she said to me, "I think that maybe the temperature is stuck on my weather app. It keeps saying that it's just 31 degrees out here, ...

Introduction
I am a happily married, homeschooling mother of two high school girls. Moved back to Minnesota after an 8-year "explore" in Florida. I am currently a student,studying Library Information Technology, because I think libraries are one of humankind's greatest inventions! An ISFJ, I love to think, plan and make lists, savor the seasons and enjoy the flavors of a plant-based diet. My relationship with Jesus keeps me grounded and lifts me high all at the same time. I write about all of that, plus some knitting and art too at my blog, my home online since 2006: Golightly Place!
