3 March



While trolling through realtor.com, I saw a beautiful home in Truckee (the less expensive neighbor of Incline) with incredible views of Donner Lake. The beautiful house was $625,000. Obviously this is out of my budget.



There are obviously less expensive houses there, but the pretty ones seem to start at $600K.



The house above is listed at $450,000, 1440sf, 3/2 and is in Incline Village. Small but cute. It has no garage.


Right now I'm stuck. I have spent the last three weeks walking around with butterflies in my stomach wondering whether I should simply move to Incline or first check out two other locations in Utah and Montana. Houses in Midway, Utah and Livingston, Montana are less expensive. This house, for instance, is located in Midway and listed at $318,000 for 3,700sf. Huge! But they are not in the mountains, they are in a valley surrounded by mountains. On the other hand, they get snow!


I am afraid of making a mistake, of choosing the wrong place. What if I can't find a job in Incline/Truckee? Of course, I could say the say for Montana and Utah. However, I can't stay here forever, at some point I'll have to move forward.

When our spirit hungers

The precocious toddler’s interest in talking to her mother grew in insistence as the gathered group settled in for an hour of silent prayer. Shushing didn’t work, so the mother led her child into an adjoining room where she would still be part of the sanctuary, but sound would be dampened. Despite the closed door and heavy glass walls, the child’s fervent desire to speak with her mother was still audible.
I said a prayer for the patient mother determined to stay, and for the child who was either tired or hungry or impatient for Mom’s undivided attention. And then tried to bring my wandering thoughts back to prayer. I had come to Adoration with my own pressing need for answers.
Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed a growing emptiness in my heart. A void, as if something is missing. It’s not psychological. Not physical. After doing an internal check, I determined it’s a spiritual void that I’m experiencing.
No, I’m not doubting God, his existence or goodness. I have full confidence in…

Open to the Spirit - Book Review

Open to the Sprit is like reading a letter from a friend. McKnight writes a very accessible introduction to the Holy Spirit and its role in our spiritual life. McKnight uses several stories from his life and others to share how the Holy Spirit consoles and deepens our daily spiritual walk. A terrific book for those seeking an introduction to a relationship with the Holy Spirit.

Simple Spinach and Kale Fettucine

On Wednesday I picked up my first box of organic from the High Country Conservation Center’s Summit CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Way back in February, I bought a ‘share’ in this summer’s crop, which entitles me to a weekly box of organic vegetables from mid-June through October.




Now that the vegetables have arrived, I have two reactions: 1) Wow! This is so exciting! Look at these beautiful vegetables, I’m going to be so healthy. 2) Yikes! What am I going to do with four bags of greens?









For the next sixteen weeks, I want to share my culinary adventures as I cook my way through my CSA box each week. Even if you don’t subscribe to the CSA share, you’ll enjoy these recipes which focus on our summer bounty. I hope you’ll also be inspired to try more vegetable-centered meals. Now, back to those four bags of greens! 


This week’s recipe polished off two of the bags immediately. You can make this easy and tasty recipe for two or four people, just increase the amount of greens and th…
