I can’t believe it but February is almost over. I agreed to participate in the “A to Z April Challenge” so I am “gearing up.” Not only did I sign up for the challenge, but I also signed up for the big “Theme Reveal” in March. As a new blogger I hope I know what I’m in for! This means you’ll get a preview of my A to Z theme in a few weeks. In any case it’s why I’ve been writing a little bit less recently. That’s one thing I’ve been up to, among the other mundane necessities of life.
I promised to publish
the corrections of my French mistakes after my lesson because I thought it may be useful to someone else who is learning to see me make my mistakes and then correct them. So if that interests you, please go back to this post
where I have now added some corrections with explanations where possible.
I have discovered
that I really enjoy the Trifecta writing challenges
even though I am just an amateur poet/writer. I expect to submit another one this week. Mostly, though, I encourage you to go over to their site and read all the entries. I have found many interesting blogs and brilliant writers to follow over there.
Have I been in the kitchen?
Yes, a bit. Last week I cooked mussels at home for the very first time. Whole Foods had some nice PEI mussels for a decent price, so I thought, “pourquoi pas?”
It really wasn’t difficult at all, and with a nice crusty loaf of bread, it made a simple and delicious meal. For dessert, I made “le bonheur”
(happiness)…I mean, “mousse au chocolat.”
(There’s a wonderful how-to video here at one of my favorite sites
) You’ll see when you watch it…it’s “diet” ! I am sure that this lady would not lie to me! No matter what, it’s definitely an easy and delicious dessert!
I.F. and I have progressed
through the complete first chapter of Philippians. Every verse I learn makes me more grateful for my beautiful church family. Paul, writing from prison, in horrible circumstances, found great joy just thinking of and praying for the believers in Philippi. Even when the world is against us, when we see most clearly that the devil “walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8
) , we must take heart that our fellow believers are out there, too, “standing fast in one spirit and with one mind, striving together for the faith of the gospel.” (Philippians 1: 27
And so, chers lecteurs,
c’est tout pour aujourd’hui. I hope that you’ll be as excited as I am about the upcoming April challenge. If you haven’t joined yet, there’s still time! The list is here!
