Jesus Directed To Prepare The Passover

Posted by infinitygoods on April 8, 2008

Have you ever celebrated Pesach or Passover as Jesus did with His apostles for The Last Super?

Pictured here are samples of the Seder Plates used for the Passover dinner. Our church and several other churches in our area celebrate the seder meal each year and several newspaper articles have been written about it in the Los Angeles Times and the Los Angeles Daily News. Has this Jewish celebration been adopted by your church, I wonder? If you are Jewish, I’d love to hear about your memories or what you look forward to each year during Passover.

Never Fear, God Is Here

Posted by infinitygoods on February 26, 2008

Never Fear, God Is Here Photo by Infinity Goods
One of the wildflowers on the mountain you saw in last week’s Word Filled Wednesday. The yellow ones bloomed first. This week the orange ones are popping up in profusion. Our mountainsides have no concern for being irrigated, and each spring God provides an abundance of multicolored blooms. Wishing you all a worry-free Wednesday.

Psalm 65:7 You Set Up The Mountains By Your Might

Posted by infinitygoods on February 20, 2008

http://the160acrewoods.wordpress.com

7 You are robed in power, you set up the mountains by your might.
This is a shot of the mountains above my home. I am always in awe at how they are set up or arranged like giant boulders stacked up on top of each other. According to the historical and geological societies in the area, this type of geological formation is only seen in Southern California at the border of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, and no where else in the world.

Thirteen Ways To Keep Warm Without A Heater

Posted by infinitygoods on January 23, 2008

Thursday 13 Number 15

thursdaybannerbook.png

It’s pretty cold out there in most of the United States, even out here in California. Here’s 13 ways to keep warm without turning on your heater or at least keeping it set at a lower temperature.

  1. Wear layers and a sweater;
  2. Use one or more throws;
  3. Sleep with several blankets or down comforter;
  4. Wear socks;
  5. Wear slippers;
  6. Drink something hot such as tea;
  7. Bake something in the oven;
  8. When done, let your oven cool down with the door open;
  9. Eat soup or chili;
  10. Use a heating pad to warm up your bed or lap;
  11. Hug your pets;
  12. Hug your spouse;
  13. Use your fireplace.

And if you’re desperate because your heater broke down, you can even wear gloves, a scarf and a hat and be sure not to read any books about the Donner Party.

Wishing warmth to you all and a happy Thursday! For more participants, visit Thursday Thirteen.

Thursday Thirteen #14 — I Spy Amtrak

Posted by infinitygoods on January 16, 2008

thursdaybannerpariscafe.png

Here are 13 things I spied people doing on an Amtrak ride which was running four hours late.

  1. Read/study. Lots of reading books, textbooks, newspapers, comics, magazines, documents. A few books were even traded.
  2. Write. I wrote this post, and a few other people were writing, too.
  3. Knitting. One woman was knitting with snow white wool and dragging it all over the tables, seats and (yikes) even the floor. By the time her project is done, I think it will have become public places gray.
  4. Play cards. Some Germans were having a really great time at it and laughing all the way.
  5. Use laptop. Can a battery really last this long? It did for a woman applying to graduate school. Actually it turned out she had found a lone electric outlet right by her seat. How lucky!!
  6. Listen to music. And recharge the iPod in the scenic car, too.
  7. Sleep. From babies to seniors and every age in between, it was really tiring to wake up at the crack of dawn and be delayed by four hours due to poor weather throwing tree trunks and mud on the tracks. We had our own cleaning crew precede us all the way through the trip.
  8. Talk on cell. To make new plans, to let concerned people know we were alive and well, to check on middle of the night bus and cab service, and sometimes just to vent.
  9. Eat. So much waiting makes people hungry. Even those who had a sack lunch or even dinner found themselves having to make a trip to the dining car or the snack bar.
  10. Play video games. The 7 to 27 crowd was armed with video games to pass the time.
  11. Watch scenery. We shared the train with an Amish family who watched lots of scenery, spending most of the time in the scenic car. They spoke and laughed with each other, and they were much more polite than most people are these days. (And they were carrying/guarding the most gigantic bag of Cheetos I had ever seen — a gift???)
  12. Watch DVDs. The batteries ran out, but while they lasted, a few people watched movies.
  13. Talk to strangers. After several hours “in the same boat,” people didn’t think they were strangers anymore and common points of interest started being noticed all through the train.

Happy Thursday!!

WFMW — Household Tip for Eggs

Posted by infinitygoods on November 20, 2007

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!!

Sometimes a recipe will call for only an egg white or only an egg yolk.  Don’t throw out that good leftover!  Just freeze it and add it to your next omelet or scrambled eggs.  If you make sure they don’t get freezer burn, they will last quite a while, but I like to use them as soon as possible.

WFMW — Holiday Decorating Tips and Ideas

Posted by infinitygoods on November 6, 2007

nano_06_icon_micro3.gifnablo0790x33participant.jpg

Today’s Works For Me Wednesday carnival is reversed. Instead of me giving you tips and ideas, you give them to me and my readers.

With Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and the New Year all coming in quick succession, I’d like to know about your best holiday decorating tips and ideas. Let us know what makes your life easier, what makes your house a home, what your guests and family ooh and ahh about, what traditions you keep, what collections you have. Do you decorate a tree, a nativity, an outdoor menorah, a front door? We want to know and be inspired by you.

I’ll see you on your blogs and I’ll be trying to answer as many of your questions. Don’t forget to stop by Shannon’s for a list of all the participants. And remember, you can comment even if you don’t have a post listed on Shannon’s page.

I’m participating in Chili‘s Holiday Shopping List on November 12. See my post for more details about what I’ll be doing and be sure to come back here on the 12th (and daily too because I LOVE a blog home filled with great reading guests like you and I’m also participating in National Blog Post Month so there’s lots to read).

So do you run out of Christmas or Hanukkah gift ideas, or have difficult people to shop for who don’t need, or claim they don’t want, anything?

Have I got the thing for you!

It’s Chili’s Christmas List Carnival, also known as Holiday Shopping Carnival, which I am participating in!

So be sure to come back to see me on Nov. 12 for the Christmas List Carnival (and daily too, because I LOVE a blog home full of great reading guests like you, and I’m participating in NaBloPoMo all month, so there’s lots to read.)

Only 27 shopping days till Hanukkah! Only 48 shopping days till Christmas!

WFMW — Freezer Solution

Posted by infinitygoods on October 30, 2007

You know those little square plastic tabs that keep bread bags closed? Most people send those to the landfill, but I save mine.

Each time I cut open a bag from my freezer such as frozen vegetables, tater tots, etc., I reclose the bag of what’s left using those nifty little tabs.

It’s easier than the wire twist ties, rubber bands, string or transferring to a zip bag.

It’s one more of my little ways to save the environment. It saves me money and it’s my solution on how to keep my veggie bags from opening and causing freezer burn to my foods.

It worked for my mother-in-law who gave me this solution when I was a newlywed, it’s worked for me all these years, and it will work for you too.
