Hi Amy, thanks for visiting my blog. I don't remember where we purchased the quail egg pan from, in fact I'm not even sure it is called that. Here are some links that may help you though. -Susan http://www.littledutchgirl.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=2835 http://www.templeofthai.com/cookware/kanomkrok-6210000316.php

Before we get around to that, though, let me address some of the comments that some of my precious & few readers left for me: Jen (Knitters, Knitters), Brett has been duly notified and educated about what a "porn-stasch" is.... Continue reading

Today is our 32nd Anniversary. As relationships go, ours was non-eventful at the beginning. Mainly because, at the age of 14, I found the male of the species repulsive. Brett, being several years older than I, remembers to this day... Continue reading

For those reading on Facebook notes, it's easier to read on my "real" blog: http://talesfromthewaitingroom.typepad.com/ Not sure why Facebook wants each post all to itself, but one learns to accept things in life. While on a family shopping trip the... Continue reading

And apparently that is all they're doing. When one thinks of chickens, the word "industrious" doesn't automatically spring to the front lobe of the brain. But is it too much to ask that when we faithfully pour chicken feed into... Continue reading
Yeah, my dear sis, she's got my back! Thanks Pam :)

No more snow accumulation for us today, just bitter cold. I then uttered those famous words to Brett that always precede some sort of incident, making it impossible to complete what it is I wanted to complete that day. It... Continue reading
Sorry, Jeff! I didn't want anyone to get jealous that we got to hang out with the cool family! Cat's out of the bag now I guess :)

The contest has been won. I think I need to make up stricter rules. Google was allowed (how would I know, anyway?). Do you want a jar of wasabi IRL? I shall send you some.

and some clean sheets, Oh, kimono, oh, kimono!" A prize for the first person who posts which t.v. show featured these lyrics on a semi-regular basis PLUS the name of the song. Prize is a $25 GC to Omaha Steaks.... Continue reading

Oh sure, there are times I can fit in to polite society. But just when you think you've gotten all the kids out of diapers, here we go again. As often happens, the baby got diaper rash, necessitating medicated soap... Continue reading

Yeah I know. The Golden Globe Awards just gained national, if not international attention and acclaim. But Hollywood is fickle, and fame is fleeting. What matters most in this sad old world of ours is that our driveway has won... Continue reading

Except we were allowed free to go to the dr. yesterday. We thought we'd beaten this...this "thing" that's had us in its clutches on and off for a couple of weeks, but yesterday morning when several of them woke up... Continue reading

Sure, we had a great Christmas and New Year's and I may post more about that later. But then I got really sick the other day. Then a few other members of the family got really sick. Two nights ago... Continue reading

It's so quiet here now. We miss all of the big kids being here, and the grandchildren. What a crazy, too-short time we had with everyone! We were also blessed to have one of our DIL's parents here for a... Continue reading

The blog is live here, for those who came through facebook: http://talesfromthewaitingroom.typepad.com/ Since daddy's out of town, the appliances are once again operating on the same wave-length. While there is usually a sort of détente between appliances and vehicles, these... Continue reading

For a family that doesn't formally celebrate Halloween, we seem to get our share of the All Hallow's Eve that trickles in through different channels. Nathanael carved a jack-o-lantern, that used to be a lovely unblemished pumpkin, which would have... Continue reading

Is it really Thursday? I think I've finally recovered from my weekend! Last night was crazy hat night at AWANA, and I made the mistake of letting Josh pick out a "crazy hat" for me. I wore a bike helmet... Continue reading

As I've attested to previously, this is a strange land we've moved to. Though after two years, I now feel very much at home, I am still struck by the amount of statues of livestock. Today's entry brings us "Attempts... Continue reading

As promised, here are the tarantula photos. One morning in Haiti a couple weeks ago, Brett woke up and saw that Josh had a tarantula crawling on his back. Josh was just starting to wake up too, and Brett said... Continue reading

Saturday I took the lot of them and went on a benefit walk for NTRC. It was a beautiful day for a walk anyway, but made all the better knowing it was For a Good Cause. We had raised a... Continue reading

Just because you haven't seen me doesn't mean I haven't been here. Well not *here* exactly, but here as in...not gone. Good thing I don't write song lyrics for a living. A week ago Saturday the girls were signed up... Continue reading

Though we were supposed to welcome daddy back home today, an earthquake in New Zealand prevented flights getting out. We're certainly thankful that at least as far as they know, no one has died but there's been lots of damage.... Continue reading
