The High Life

December 22, 2008 at 4:37 pm (Uncategorized)

It’s so chilly right now. (It’s been getting to about 20 below at night) I love winter time, but I must say that considering the brutal temps, I don’t have the most advantageous spot in the house. My bedroom (the awesome view) is in our third story, and the wood heat can’t quite make it all the way from the basement to my personal icebox. Flannel sheets, granny gown, down comforter, heavy quilt, and afghan don’t cut it anymore. So mom gave me a really soft pink blankie to wrap up in. It looks stupid, but it’s warm.

Beautiful Beautiful

That says it all. Just look at those breath-taking peaks! Its really something, to get snow like this in September. My bedroom window is very advantageously placed on the east side of the house, so I get the prettiest sunrises. I often wake up to liquid gold flowing through the pane, or maybe just-barely-pink mountains, or gray mist rising from the hill. Nutshell: I love my view.

Heaven in a Tin

September 20, 2008 at 3:51 pm (Uncategorized)

Forgive the lame title, but when you possess the bestest thing in the world, it really doesn’t matter.

What am I talking about? Badger Balm. I found my long-sequestered tin, and it feels soooo good! (try it on your shins, if they get sad and dry during fall & winter) The tangerine scent smells yum, looks yum, and FEELS YUM! First ingredeint? Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Oh man. The only way to get better than than that is to follow it up with locally grown peppermint tea. Speaking of which, I think I’ll get a cup right now…

On Monday, my great-aunt Lois Yost left to go back to her home in PA. We spent a few fun evenings with her and Grandma, and we shared a lot of laughs.

Unusually Celebratory State of Mind

July 5, 2008 at 11:50 am (Uncategorized)

I’m not normally a very festive soul on the fourth day of the seventh month, but I had such a delightful time last night, and I was so inspired by American materialism, that I decided (at the risk of becoming a cyber casualty) to post another cartoon.

Haus Segen (House Blessing)

June 21, 2008 at 4:39 pm (Uncategorized)

 Jesus! Dwell within my house,

And nevermore depart therefrom,

With Thy grace abide therein

That I may not forsaken be.

O thou man of greatest blessing

Come, enter with Thy benediction.

Give joy, peace, happiness and salvation,

That my house partaker be,

As Job and Abraham, of wealth and blessing tenderly,

Spread your abundant grace upon me.


Jesus! Dwell within my heart

When I suffer fear and pain.

When agony and want afflict me,

Help me! O Thou faithful God.

Though here no riches I may e’er possess,

The heavenly gifts abide with me.

Though sorrows I may suffer here,

The heavenly joys remain with me.

so much from Henry Weiss, 1791

A Date with the Dentist

June 19, 2008 at 9:21 am (Hannah's Little Blog, Uncategorized)

When we got back from CA, I asked mom if she had scheduled my appointment to get my wisdom teeth pulled. She had forgotten, so she right away called the Doc. Now, you must understand, I wanted them out soon, but I wasn’t expecting it to happen quite this soon. Tomorrow, I am going in. I am a bit apprehensive about it, but I am very relieved that they will not put me completely under. The only thing I am steamed about is that I cannot eat or drink anything prior to the ordeal. That means no coffee. PRAY FOR ME!!! No, pray for the poor dental assistant who will have to deal with this grump.
