Are you There? | Home Alone | really really really random

If you have made it to this post then my domain transfer was successful and didn’t even kick me off your blog feed!!! Yay! Leave a comment bellow to let me know you have safely made it to my wordpress  blog :)

Home alone? Usually NEVER.  But last night my parents loaded up the younger crowd and headed out for the evening leaving me with my 3 sisters to survive… ALONE. In my entire 22 years of existence this has only happened twice. Talk about quiet! They say “Silence is golden” and I say, “silence is golden for about 36.5 minutes then it is maddening!” ;) So in order to create some noise I decided to  get in the kitchen and cook! My sisters wanted pasta so I was on a mission to cook  an Italian dinner! :) It is hard to cook for only 4 people. I wasn’t quite sure how to make only 4 servings of  Clam Alfredo and had to 1/2 the french bread recipe. Then I found myself accidentally boiling 12 servings of pasta and chopping-up enough salad to feed a small army. :) Thankfully my sisters were REALLY hungry!


Before my brothers left my sisters and me to fend for ourselves they returned from the grocery store with a little surprise. Nothing all-natural about this surprise, 100% un-natural but 100% SWEET! It is said that a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach but I am here to inform you that they are wrong, that is actually the way to a woman’s heart!  Buy her a cupcake and you will win her heart ;) Ok, so that was kind of a joke. Anywho, knowing their sisters’ HUGE sweet tooth they bought us ice cream and toppers…. Complete surprise! THANK YOU Gideon and Joel!

Thankfully we were re-united with our family before Dessert and had plenty of help consuming the ice cream :)

And to top off a very exciting 24 hours my Way Of the Master season 4 came in!! If you have never watched Way of the Master I highly recommend it!

So, this is my really random post and I need to get off the computer and get started on some Saturday chores. Hope y’all have a wonderful Saturday and remember God IS good!!

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Romans 6:23

About Rachel

“Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword”; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” Isaiah 1:18-20

    1. Oh good, Melanie! Glad I continued to remain on your blog feed!!
      Wish I could meet you too… maybe one day we will make our way to Ireland?! :) And if you ever venture back to the states and find yourself in Missouri you are always welcome at our house!!

  1. This is a delightful post, Rachel! First, it’s happy to see other people enjoy drinking out of Ball jars, too. Second, it’s wonderful that it was a challenge to cook for only four people – that’s a good dilemma to have! Third, I haven’t seen a complete episode of Way of the Master, but the clips I have seen were very good. Fourth, amen – God is GOOD!

    1. THANK YOU for the comment! It was such a blessing to receive :)
      Yay, another Ball jar drinker! ;) It is funny but I find it strange to drink out of anything but a mason jar! And yes, such a good dilemma-blessing being challenged to cook for ONLY four :)

      P.S. If you happen to ever want to purchase a season of Way of the Master I highly recommend the 3rd season. I have all 4 seasons and season 3 is my personal favorite!!

Leave a comment and make my day! ;)
