I’ll Still Be Cooking

Under maintenance is an understatement.

I’m no quitter; I persevere under burdensome conditions.  I have loved writing the words on this page for five years and to love is to lay yourself open to loss.

The thigh bone is not connected to the hip bone.

My site is fighting with our computer, its software, its updates and its compatibility with photos.

So, for now, I am on an early hiatus-- most years programmed for January during fasting season.

“To love is to lay yourself open to loss. That is the bargain we make with ourselves... because it is worth it.”

On the Threshold…

Do not grow weary; pray, vote, submit.

I may stop the sky from sending rain.

I may command the locusts to destroy the land. I may send sicknesses to my people.  

Then my people, who are called by my name, will be sorry for what they have done.

They will pray and obey me and stop their evil ways.

If they do, I will hear them from heaven. I will forgive their sin,

and I will heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7: 13-14 International Children's Bible

Everything New Under the Sun

MP drove in the direction of Colorado and I flew another course; Montana. Specifically I spent a week with my brother, Bill and sister-in love, Cynthia with their three dogs and two cats in Polson.
It was a glorious retreat sleeping beneath a foot of fluffy down cowgirl covers, no chores, and long winding walks on chilly bright blue days-- gawking at autumn colors of which I have never seen (and I mean never).

A color-packed riot of strong pine greens, chartreuse, flanked by golden tamarack, deep variegated reds and crimson foliage stood still like a massive puzzle against a backdrop of a rippling Flathead Lake.
During my absence our computer began a descent into a black hole, and since then I have been on a new diet of learning how to respond to upgrades and templates--nothing seems familiar except the alphabet!
So until the fog clears, enjoy these photos of my week on the edge of heaven.

Photographs and text used on cococooks belong to me, Peggy Lunde unless linked otherwise.

There are many crossroads in life,

turning points, transitions, and some are made more easily than others.

Some require long hard work,  and others seem as natural

as breathing,

But they all remind us that though life sometimes seems to stand still,

the future is always coming.

Remembering Gray on his thirty sixth birthday near the last place we traveled to-- Loving and trusting is a choice we make when the years are many and the years are long.
