Look whose in the shop...

Exactly a week ago I had a car accident. Shook me up, emotionally, but no one was hurt!
Although I don't want to admit I may have been going too fast (25 MPH) for the rain, it hadn't rained in a while and I think the road was exceptionally slippery on the ramp to I-71. It was scary. The 4Runner is now being fixed. See how the front and back ends were banged in?We found a praying mantis by our back door. We've been watching him for a few days now. He was sitting a top our ladder this afternoon. Big fella, eh?
I made some pumpkin flan (click to get the recipe). Hannah wasn't crazy about it, nor was Olivia or Rob. I loved it though. I invited Magdalena over for a piece! Good company makes the food better!!!
Hannah drew this nice picture of the owl and I like the googly-eyes she added. I'm not looking forward to the time change. Arg! I really wish everyone just kept things the same all the time! I would go against the flow, but I have to be to work on time, appointments (going to the dentist on Monday afternoon) and church!

I really liked this post, Martha (although not the part about the car accident!). It is such a treat to get a peek at the soothing rhythms of your lovely home and family. Pumpkin flan, a whimsical-looking praying mantis, one sweeter than sweet owl portrait: how blessed you are!

BTW, I love the photos of your girls! : )

I hope you are feeling calmer now since your accident. I have only ever been in one accident and I was shaking for hours afterward.

I love the owl drawing!

I hope everything is settled down now from the accident. As long as you are ok, the car can always be fixed. Sending you lots of hugs.

The flan looks yummy! I've never had pumpkin before! I'll have to give it a try!
