Hello, Goodbye, and Gardening Gloves

Hello and welcome to my new blog.

Today was a whirlwind of errands, as I prepared for a dessert potluck on our front porch for a dear friend who is moving home to Milano. M. leads our School of Community. It was bittersweet to say goodbye. "A faithful friend is a strong support; whoever finds one has found a treasure" (Sirach 6:14ff.).

While I was busy buying ice cream bowls and cloth napkins at TJMaxx, I bought myself a pair of ultrafeminine gardening gloves. Like the ones here. Will they actually motivate me to start weeding? Let's see if they ever get dirty.


  1. God bless you with your new blog!I look forward to what I will find here - both in words and through community.

  2. Thanks Fran and thanks for being my first follower. It feels funny to be out on my own, but then again we are never alone, right?!

  3. God bless your new undertaking, Allison, and please send along my regards to "M," one of the most delightful people I've met in a long time.

  4. I'm thrilled that you started this blog. Yet another way to stay in touch!Have fun with it.
    BTW I purchased new garden gloves two weeks ago and have put them to use. NO weeding yet just lots of planting. I just hope the plants take in this "summer heat".

  5. Look forward to your new posts on this blog. :)

  6. Congrats on the new blog! I look forward to following you here!
