Autumn Adventures 2021 – September

Autumn Adventures 2021 – September

AUTUMN IS HEEEEEEERE!!!! Hooray! High temperatures here in Savannah, Georgia are staying under 90 degrees, so that’s a sure sign of autumn! We’ll take it! And we’ll dream of cooler days to come! I’m linking up with Leslie to share my list of autumn adventures! Here’s what I hope to do during September, October, and November: Give blood: I scheduled an appointment for last month, but the site had to close early. Later this week I’ll go to my local…

Israel 2021 – Caesarea (Maritime)

Israel 2021 – Caesarea (Maritime)

On our first day of sightseeing, we visited Caesarea (by the Mediterranean Sea, not Caesarea Phillipi). This area was a total surprise to me! I mentioned before that I had never really thought much about Israel at all, and even with allllll that my kids and I learned about the Roman Empire during our years of homeschooling, I had never thought about Israel having Roman ruins. I’m telling you, this trip took a lot of things that I’ve learned over…

Israel Trip 2021 – In the Beginning

Israel Trip 2021 – In the Beginning

This whole trip came about REALLY quickly. I had never wanted to go to “The Holy Land.”  I figured I could worship Jesus from here, no problem.  Here’s how God put all this in motion! I’ve been doing The Bible Recap this year. This Bible reading plan and podcast is written by Tara-Leigh Cobble, the founder and CEO of D-Group, a discipleship ministry. Tara-Leigh and her team went to Israel earlier this year for a month (with special permission from…

I’m sharing what I’m CURRENTLY up to following prompts given by Anne at In Residence. September’s prompts are: beginning, ending, loving, picking, and posting. Let’s do this!!! I am CURRENTLY… beginning: my Christmas shopping. I loving buying gifts for family and friends, and I love having it wrapped up (no pun intended!) by Thanksgiving so I can rest, enjoy the whole season, and focus on Advent. Between all that and the ongoing shipping delays we’re dealing with, autumn shopping seems…

It’s time to link up with Anne at In Residence for this month’s Currently prompts! Here are MY responses to the prompts. How would YOU reply?!? I am CURRENTLY… consuming: less food! I’ve been using the Noom program for a couple of months now. Its food log tool (especially the visuals) has been eye-opening and incredibly helpful. (Here’s my affiliate link if you want to scope the program out. I highly recommend it!) exploring: the Biltmore rooftop! We recently camped…

Autumn Adventures 2020 – Final Update

It’s time to take a look at my Autumn Adventure List and see how I did! You can see the original list HERE. Camping. DONE! As I mentioned in my original post, Gene and I camped for several days near Chattanooga, Tennessee in September. In October we headed up to Asheville, North Carolina, another of our favorite camping/hiking areas. We had a great time in spite of some rain and temps that were warmer than we had hoped. We hiked…

UK Vacay – The Food!

UK Vacay – The Food!

Today I want to share some of my favorite meals from our trip to England and Scotland.  Poor England has a bad reputation for food, but we really do like most of it.  We’re all about pub grub! Speaking of pub grub, fish and chips is always a good go-to. Jacket potatoes (baked potatoes) are also a reliable choice. Let’s go ahead and address the haggis issue!  I decided that I really couldn’t spend a week in Scotland and not…
