Dear Cameron:
I'm Daniel Paul, one of the elders at Salem Presbyterian.  The Session and I are excited about your becoming a new member.  I've been asked to interview you sometime before Easter. 
This, of course, is an honor for me.
I'm writing to ask if there would a time we could meet to review membership vows with you, learn a little about your spiritual journey, and answer any questions you might have. My wife Lani to join us.
Would there be an evening this week when we could do this?  

One possibility -- if convenient  -- would be for you to stop by our house after this evening's worship service. We live two blocks from the church: 619 Granville Drive. 
But I'm most interested in a day and time that you'd find preferable. 
Kind regards,
- Daniel

"playing office"

well, i finally did it; joined the ranks of the self-employed (freelance stylist) a few weeks ago. this, of course, meant i needed a place at home where i could sort papers and get inspired, so i claimed this little spot in our first floor guest room and thought photos of it might be an appropriate intro to this new venture i'm on.
anyway, work's been coming in pretty regularly so far and i haven't spent much time at the desk until this week. which is when i realized how much i enjoy being surrounded by the kids' artwork and sitting at the beautiful desk that dp picked out for me more than 10 years ago. makes "going to work" any day, a pleasure.
happy vocationing,

mom's strudel

(can't believe i just wrote her name in lower case. she deserves ALL CAPS more than anyone i've ever known).

my mom made the most incredible saturday morning strudel. folks raved about it. little did i know that it was quite simple to make. follow this recipe and you'll have enough to make three, yes THREE, strudels of your own.

the dough.
can you read that?
now divide the dough into thirds and pop them in the frig for a bit.

or bake one and pop the other two in the freezer for when you forgot to plan ahead for the in-laws' overnight visit.

when you're ready to proceed, roll out the dough to a large rectangle (approximately 8" x 18") and smear with 3-4 tablespoons of jam/jelly/preserves whatever.

all rolled out with blueberry jam

then fold over the sides to cover the jam and bake in a 450 degree oven. for "20 minutes or until golden".

pull it out and dust with confectioner's sugar.

you'll thank me.

it's one of the easiest recipes ever and yet it garners accolades beyond belief.

now that's style

just outside of chicago yesterday, our son proposed to his lovely (and shocked) girlfriend while they flew over a field he'd plowed the day before. 

she said "yes"
and as one of his facebook friends so eloquently put it:

"Way to set the bar so high! Suddenly asking a lady for her hand in marriage over some endless bread sticks and salad at The Olive Garden seems kinda anti-climactic."

so for all those single men out there, this post is definitely a "serving suggestion only".

good luck improving on it.
