I'm so thankful for my delightful baby. She's teething right now so I keep having to comfort her but she's so happy and playful lately, she melts me. I adore that little baby.
I'm thankful for my husband, who is my dearest friend after Jesus. We've been having some good times hanging out lately.
I'm thankful for crocheting and other crafts that give me the satisfaction of creating something with my own hands.
I'm thankful for children's books.
I'm thankful for moderate weather.
And as always, I am thankful for the internet.
What are you thankful for this week?

While my American friends and family are blowing up facebook with statuses about pumpkin flavored everything, apple picking and putting on layers this is the conversation Ryan and I had this morning:
"Feels great outside."
"Yeah, it was mid sixties at sunrise. We should go walk to the store."
"It's going to get hotter though."
"Yeah, but it's really cooled down. The high for the day is only 90. To have some perspective that means it's going to stay cooler all day than human body temperature. It's really starting to cool down!"
Happy Saturday everybody, from India.

- I've made this with chicken broth, veggie broth or even with water plus some salt. If you use broth, you don't really need to add salt. I most often do it with a crushed chicken bouillon cube. The lentils take a long time to cook, so as it boils down you add water so it doesn't burn.
- I use either olive oil or canola oil.
- Lentil wise I tend to use the yellow split ones that are a bit larger and harder. There are these smaller, softer ones that are perfect for the Indian dal that just falls apart: not so perfect for this recipe, it will make a taco mush. lol. I know. It's still edible, but you want the harder ones for the right texture.
- I make my own taco seasoning now because the packets are imported here and are comparatively pricey. But if I had them I'd probably just add a half to full packet.

|Though sick she's been able to have some fun this week!|
She heals in her sleep (we all do) so I am glad she's napping.
I haven't been a great blogger lately. I'm both planning too much and too little. That is, I keep planning out a week of posts, then not being able to follow through and getting caught up in the "no, Thursday is supposed to be THIS post" and not getting it out. I think I need to relax a bit and just post what I post and I'll get more out. Which is why I'm doing this off the cuff style one.
Ryan's working nights again after a month of working days and is in that tiring adjustment phase. The good part is he's gotten Sunday and Monday off. The last two schedule changes he's only had weekdays off. We've had pleasant family time.
Well, Dreamer's awake now! I'm off!
