Highs and Lows

Let's do highs and lows. We're not just talking about five's, friends.
-Getting excited about Jesus.
-Going into Seattle tonight to spend time with friends from the streets.
-Planning a road trip to visit a dear friend over spring break.
-Watching a younger sister in her high school musical last night. She played the enchantress and a spoon for Beauty and the Beast. (By far the prettiest spoon I ever did see!)
-Orange juice. Oranges. And orange flavored lollipops.
-Tom the turkey is dying. I know this sounds like it should be on my 'lows' list, but this turkey is a pain. He has meds and is a kajillian years old and wobbles and gobbles when he feels threatened. I guess he's alright for the most part, but really, a turkey with medicine? It's a bit peculiar.    
-Discovering the best Thai restaurant two miles away from home. Our bank account is guaranteed to plummet. Massaman curry, oh how you make my taste-buds dance.
-New art projects. Expect to see a stenciled door soon. Stenciled, yes.
-A family friend gave us a bread machine. Mold scent, I declare you GONE in the name of fresh baked buns! 
-Our heater went out. It's okay though, we found a new one in the barn. From the loft. ...I have no idea why there was a heater in the loft. There is hay in the loft. It's a wooded barn. These things don't add up.
-Dying flowers.
-3:00am papers. Sleep debt, what up.

What are your highs and lows this week?


  1. I just found and keep scrolling down your blog. you are so optimistic, faithful and lovely and i can't wait to read about all the journeys you have with your hubby!

    I hope you follow back so we can stay in touch xoxo

    ps come link up your best post from the week on my blog hop! :)

  2. This made me think of Switchfoot's song "Needle in a Haystack Life" -

    "You breathe it in the highs and lows. We call it living."

    I have felt so up and down the past few days, so highs and lows make perfect sense to me right now...

    Hope you have a wonderful Sunday Katie Ann =)

  3. Your lows could be a lot worse so I say you are doing pretty well :)

    The line about Tom the Turkey dying made me laugh, I have to admit. Poor Tom.

    Oh, I just tried Thai food recently and it is so good. I had the Pad Thai and yum!
