OFFICIAL WIFE: The Cookies Are More Than They Appear

--and the tomato pies.

The intertubes are not as commenty as I'd like. People are still learning how this works. People are scared, and I guess rightly so. "People are scared," is almost a mantra at this point. I wish there were less cause for the phenomena. The internet is no worse than real life, really. I wish people understood that. Wishes for fishes?

Still, I had a remark about some cookies. Evidently it meant something to someone so that's good.

I made these cookies again today because it's a holiday. I only baked three and put the rest of the dough in the freezer because we're fat.

--and I thought about --I guess-- my church family. You'll have to forgive me, just a bit, a tiny bit. I'm not Ortho. I even hope not to be Ortho, although I continue to consider it, and a child will make it very hard to deny. Still, I'm gonna call you my church family. I may not be on the roll, but there's names I could name who I call friends. It's more than rules as much as it is more than a building.

I am confident I know what Church is.

What is little c church? [and if you quote a saint, and they are less than genius in this particular quote, you are immediately disqualified in a made-up competition.][[but all responses will be gladly accepted]][[[And living people's opinions are favored]]]


  1. Haha, well I will be brave and leave a comment. :) I've been reading here for awhile and it feels like time to say hi anyway.

    I could relate to a lot of this post-- about considering the Orthodox my church family even though I'm not Orthodox (yet?). I'm also in a "mixed marriage' in that my husband is a Protestant and I'm the renegade sorta-kinda-wanna-be Orthodox.

    I like this blog and wish you guys posted more often! *hint hint*

  2. Hey, Leah! w00t! First comment on one of my entries!! Someone I don't even know!!!!!! HELLO, LEAH! :D I would post more, but... I want them to be cheerful entries with varied and relevant content. I think the ones in the beginning were better, and whoa did I spend more time on them.

    I'd totally brainstorm some topics of interest with you.

    Hey, I clicked on your name and got a profile, but I didn't see that you have a blog. Do you? Thanks for commenting!! Made my day!

  3. Yay! Thanks. :) Alas, my blog is no more, at least for the present. That is to say, I used to have one of those art journal blogs but I recently took it down in a fit of self consciousness. However, I'll friend you on fb if okay. (I'm also in the Holy Cross Mission group there, which is where I how I found this blog to begin with.)

    I understand about the posting; sometimes good content has to percolate awhile.
