Multitude Monday, Take 293

Thanking God this week for...

5331. the fascinating chemistry of baking: egg whites turning from clear gelatinous goo to stiff, white peaks of fluff
5332. watermelon
5333. dinner with a friend at Panera Bread, her treat

Wow, Philippians by memory! I was on my way with the Romans project and then we moved. And they I lost all momentum. Sigh.

Are you doing any scripture memory at present?

I am, actually - after about a year of totally slacking off and not doing anything, I finally got back into it the last couple of months. I worked on Psalm 63 earlier this summer and now I'm tackling 1 Peter. only about 2/3 through chapter 1, but it's been great so far.
