Another Miscellany Monday

{1} I was sleeping in this morning when I received a phone call from work:
"Hi Leah sweetie, can you come in today? One of the teachers is sick and has to go home."
"Oh, why of course!! I'll be right in!"
*Rips self out of bed*
*Does a slap~dash job of getting ready*
Double blah.
*Speed demons it to the northeast side*
Greeted by these cuties: worth it! :-)

{2} In case you didn't know, I'm a Mennonite.

However, this dress and apron are not part of my daily garb. I've been participating in a re~enactment featuring the traditional Mennonite and Brethren people during the Civil War era. School groups come through, and I show them around my kitchen and demonstrate how to make butter in my butter churn.

{3} I had a dream about these verses two nights ago, and since then I've been seeing them everywhere:
"See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these." ~Matt. 6:28-29

Hmm...perhaps I should pay attention, eh?

{4} My celebrity crush that WON'T GO AWAY: James Blake

Okayyy...I know, I know...

{5} My bff Stacy got accepted to grad school in Philly!! Whoop whoop!! I'm so excited that she's going to be closer this year. Harrisburg to Philly is only like 2 hours, so you all can bet your Philly soft pretzels/Tastykakes that I'm going to be making that trek! Congrats, my friend.

Hop over to Carissa's at lowercase letters for more miscellany, and link up to participate in the randomness!!

  2. Loved the list!
    The verse you quoted is one of my favorites.

  3. thanks so much for joining!!! those kiddies are totally adorable - definitely worth it!!! you are the cutest mennonite ever!

  4. Loved your post! Your random facts were so fun. The mennpnit garb was awesome. :)

  5. Hi Leah! Enjoyed your MM today. Interested in what it means to be Mennonite...forgive my ignorance, but I often think of the traditional dress when I hear the word. Would love to converse with you about it sometime! Do I spy a new blog background?? It's very cute! Hope you have a lovely day today, ~Kristin from Windy Poplars

  6. Loved your list....I have had so little time to catch up on my favorite blogs. Hope you will stop by...I have a great Disney giveaway...

  7. Hey Leah! Oh a sunroom sound divine! In my dreams I've got one right off my kitchen. Maybe one day... :-) So, tell me more about the Mennonite lifestyle. Is it similar at all to German Baptist? I have quite a few German Baptist friends... If it's easier to - you can e-mail me, my address is: I'm always interested in learning about different lifestyles that we typically stereotype, but are very misinformed about. Last fall we went on vacay and learned about the Shakers - again, had a VERY different idea in my mind about what they really were all about. - Sorry this was such a long "comment"! Talk to ya later, ~Kristin

  8. Loved you in your re-enactment "costume". I wear similar plain dresses and aprons for daily wear. However I do prefer a full apron for messy jobs. Bet those kiddies learnt a lot.



Thank you for taking the time to muse aloud with me,
to share your heart
& allow your thoughts to become words.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Leah
