I finished Soul Cravings on our vacation. (Out of the 10 or so I brought, it was the only one I finished…I guess I was feeling ambitious.)
Our family drove up to Austin this afternoon to hang out with the Marlow family. It felt just like we were back in Seattle with them again…especially since it was overcast and rainy all day.
I’ve decided to close up shop on inbreaking.com. The site wasn’t getting used other than a few posts here and there, and it was starting to attract spammers. Rather than try to wage a battle that was sure to grow, I just shut it down.
For now, I have redirected the inbreaking.com domain to this blog.… Read more
This journey is far from over…but we hardly remember how it began.
We pulled out of our driveway at 11:30 this morning. Wait…yesterday morning. The plan was that we would be safely in Austin by 11:30pm…that was almost three hours ago.
Everything seemed fine as we checked into the airport in Seattle.… Read more
Today was supposed to be one of the highlights of Macey’s year. Last year, we took her to the outdoor ice rink in Bellevue park, and she loved it. She’s been talking about it all year. Today was supposed to be the return trip, along with maybe a visit to Santa in the mall, and a quick bite to eat at Baja Fresh.… Read more
With the fall semester now officially behind me, I see lonely books calling from my bookshelf, wondering if they are doomed to be wallflowers. Each is pining to be sitting on my nightstand and catch drool as I struggle to stay awake.
So…with a vacation and then another few weeks without school ahead, here are some books I’m hoping to dig into a bit:
On the other hand, lunch yesterday was another attempt to find good wings in Seattle. Seattlites rave about WingDome, so I thought I’d give it another shot.… Read more
If you are a Mac user, check out MacHeist. They are selling a bundle of Mac software worth over $200 for only $49, and $10 from every purchase goes to whatever charity you designate. As more money is raised, a few more apps will become available.
I’m not sure why this is so fascinating to me but it is. I set my iSight to take a picture every 30 seconds over about a 90 minute period this morning. This scintillating set of action packed photos documents me reading, following up on some email, and doing a little design work (see the new Christmas header on the Pathways website).… Read more
When I first saw that Donald Miller was going to release a book about growing up without a father, I was a little disappointed. It’s not that it’s a great subject, but I was never without my dad, and it just seemed like such a serious turn for him to take in his writing.… Read more
I’m a bit annoyed with myself for how little I’ve been posting of late. I thought I’d write a post about that, if nothing else just to give myself some satisfaction that I actually posted something besides a brief book review. Truthfully, I think I just wanted an excuse to post my South Park likeness.… Read more
I’ve heard from a number of people that Mark Buchanan’s books are worth reading. I’d never gotten around to one until I saw that he had released a book about Sabbath called The Rest of God. The concept of Sabbath has been near to the heart of our family for the last few years, so I was stirred to pick this one up.… Read more
I had high hopes I would really dig what this book had to say. With statements like the one above in the early parts of the book (pg 24), I knew the heart of the book would match up with some things in my own heart.… Read more
Dwight Friesen is on faculty at Mars Hill Grad School. It’s looks like I will finally take a class from him next semester, and I’m looking forward to it. Once again the standard disclaimer applies — I doubt these notes will do his ideas, or the others offered through discussion, any justice.… Read more
