Feeling Creative, Ginger, Narnia in Fincastle

1. Spending a rainy, dreary Saturday morning in a creative environment somehow feels just right. Not at an art studio, but at our local home improvement store. Talk about inspiration!
2. I chopped a pound of fresh ginger in the food processor. It smelled so good that I continued to inhale deeply from the bowl after I emptied out the ginger. Steve brewed a batch of ginger beer for me, experimentally. We'll see how it turns out.
2a. Coincidentally, I baked hermit cookies today and they're filled with candied ginger. I kept a few pieces of the candied ginger aside to eat.
3. Our local, historical Fincastle Presbyterian Church hosted a C.S. Lewis weekend. Tonight we heard Will Vaus speak on his book, "The Hidden Story of Narnia". An excellent speaker, the Reverend Vaus is a C.S. Lewis authoritarian who has written several books. Click here for one of his blog posts on the subject.


  1. Candied ginger - I don't think I've ever had that.

    I read that C.S. Lewis book "The Great Divorce" for book club several years ago. I've always been intrigued by him.
