Simple Saturdays


I am having my favorite kind of Saturday.

We have no obligations today, so I slept in a bit and read my book, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, while I drank my tea.

Then I made a quick trip to the grocery store, which I should I have done last night when we were in town, but "NO" I can't seem to get myself organized when it comes to food and cooking,  to get ingredients for Trisha Yearwood's Tortilla Soup. I learned about it on Sophie's blog earlier this week and wanted to give it a try.

Here is a link to the recipe.

I spent the rest of the morning fixing food to take to a friend who just had surgery and listening to podcasts on my computer.

I love podcasts and have a few favorites I thought I would share with you. I listen to a lot of them while I sew or mow our great big lawn. Are you a podcast fan, too?

My Top 5 Podcasts.......In no particular order

1. Chick Chat show

2. Book Club Girl

3. Living on the Edge

4. This is Your Life

5. Issues, Etc.

I love my new apron. It was a gift that came all the way from Africa! You could have one, too and help marginalized African women have a better life.

Well, I have a pile of dirty dishes I need to tackle.

BTW- I would give the soup 3 stars. When I make it again, I will add more chicken and veggies to make it a little more hearty. However, it is TASTY!

I hope you are having a relaxing Saturday, and if you have a podcast fav, please share it with the rest of us!

Sidebar: Thank you so much for your encouraging comments about my concerns for our upcoming election. Our church is having a 24 hour prayer vigil for our country that starts today. I will be praying in the morning from 5:00 -5:30 a.m. I would love for you to join me. Please let me know if you do! Double hug to you!
