Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Philippians, 4. 8

Split Pea Soup

I'm gonna do it. I haven't made my homemade Split Pea soup since my "back to nature" days in the early 70's. I was living in Maine and trying to understand this macrobiotic diet I was on...not by choice...but by my husband's choice. But interestingly enough I learned to make the BEST split pea and lentil soup you have ever eaten...honest! You know how certain fragrances take you back to " a place "....or how certain things remind you of times in your life...sometimes you don't want to go there...does anyone understand what I'm saying? I just couldn't make split pea soup until now. But I am really excited about it. I will let you know how it turns out.

I've Been Tagged by Robin

This is the 4th photo in my picture album. Titled " 4 L's"
This is a photo of my mother and her 3 sisters. Not sure of the year, I could do some research...can usually narrow it down by wardrobe and hairdos...but for now...
Left to right....Lois, Leora, Lucile and Louise. My mom is Lucile. Lois is the youngest, Leora is the oldest and my mom and Louise are identical twins born in between. Over the years they appeared less identical...but their voices were exactly the same. If you heard them talking and couldn't actually see them (phone, etc) you would not be able to identify which one was speaking. My Grandma decided to name all her girls with an L, and because Lucile and Louise were twins...she spelled Lucile with one L... Lucile...instead of Lucille (like Lucille Ball) so that it would have the same number of letters as Louise. My mom's name was ALWAYS MISPELLED. Guess that's why she named me Sara without an H. People always spell my name SaraH, unless they know me.
