Abe taught a lesson on the prodigal son today, and I spent that time playing “dino parade” with some of the nursery kids. It was actually fun, and I got my spiritual uplift after dinner. The girls disappeared upstairs for two hours while Abe and I talked. I love talking with Abe because he always clarifies my thoughts and questions. Before we talked, I had been pondering some questions I have wondered ever since reading Stephanie Nielson’s memoir.

And I also took a picture of dinner. Abe makes all the salads around here because I find them boring, tedious, and too much work. He is more nutritionally motivated than I am, and since we recently got a great salad spinner, he has been making salad almost every night.
