It's May 12 and it's SNOWING in Evergreen

Let's see, the first day of Spring was uh,.....March 21? Well maybe in some parts of the country....but here in Evergreen, we've got snow in the middle of May! WOOT!

As I promised last week, I will continue to document snow days until I capture the last one of the season. (I've been told that it once snowed on the 4th of July).

For your viewing pleasure....here's what I woke up to this morning.







Update: It's now 6pm, guess what? It's snowing cats and dogs!

Gracious! It's beautiful there, but I am afraid my backside would grow larger with each passing month as I drank my weight in hot chocolate. I mean you can't enjoy snow days properly without HC can you ... even if it's falling in the middle of May.

Thanks for showing us what it looks like in your world. The sun is warm and bright in my little village Cornwall right now ... it may rain later as it frequently does, but it's light and bright for now.

Yes!

I think I've seen snow 10 times in the 24 years I've lived where I live, and only in the last 2 did it look anything like this. In the UK< in general the country grinds to a halt if more than half an inch falls, no equipement to cope with it. This year we had it for weeks, and the chorus of, "I blame the government," was comical.

Coco must be sooooo confused, though!

Oh, my!

Highs will reach in the lower 90s today. I can't feature it: snow in May!

That is absolutely beautiful. Sorry, I've never seen real snow and I imagine I would find the real thing too cold but I loved looking at these pictures.

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…
