Life With Eddy

Everyone, meet Eddy. Eddy, meet everyone. Monday, Alan and I drove to Yakima to meet a few Great Danes. After our last experience trying to adopt a dog, we were trying not to get our hopes up. We contacted the rescue agency, filled out an application, secured the first appointment of the day, and were … Continue reading

photos around seattle

Since Alan acquired the camera to end all cameras, I’ve inherited his old point and shoot Canon Powershot SD600. Lil’ C (Little Canon), as I like to call it, is small enough to fit into my purse, and powerful enough to take some decent shots. Here are a few of my walking around shots with … Continue reading

What is Ramen Night?

For some of us, the word ramen conjures up memories of undergrad, when all you had was a couple of bucks and needed a late night snack. Off to the neighborhood Safeway you went, and when you realized a few dollars could score you an entire case of fried noodle blocks with those mysterious foil … Continue reading

running as self-care

I’m not a natural athlete. While Alan is a semi-pro track racing phenom with a wardrobe of spandex bike kits that cost more than all my clothes combined, my only recollection of any willing participation in organized sports is comprised of one afternoon of little league t-ball. When I was seven. I remember trying to … Continue reading

family additions of the canine variety

Sometimes, it seems like you just can’t catch a break. Over the past few months, Alan and I have thought about rescuing a dog. In doing some research we found that Great Danes are being abandoned in our area at an alarming rate. Since I love Great Danes, and am a sucker for sad doggie … Continue reading

Netflix and Relationships: An Exercise in Compromise

Sometimes, Alan and I decide it’s time to spend some quality time together. Doing something other than sitting on the couch staring at our respective laptops and IM’ing each other from the next cushion over. If we’re feeling really wild and crazy, maybe on a Friday night, we used to pull on our shoes and … Continue reading

Musical Interlude: OK Go – “This Too Shall Pass”

I’ve seen this video posted on no less than FIVE blogs that I read, in a number of Facebook notes, and Buzz-ed through Google. I made the mistake of listening to it without watching the video. Trust me, WATCH THE VIDEO. Fun times.

Powertools, Marriage, and Fencing the Backyard

These past few months have been tough at the Klug house. As we continue prayerfully sorting out what it means to churchplant, how to faithfully serve our community and neighborhood, and what it means to be in relationship with each other, sometimes the best thing is for the Alan and I to spend some time … Continue reading

A Recipe for World Peace

Last night we met for our second plunge into Luke’s Gospel.  Sinners and Saints is off to a great start.  We’ve already covered social revolution, a pregnant virgin, a post-menopausal woman’s miraculous conception (with her husband), angelic visitations, being oppressed vs. being the oppressor…it’s getting real, folks. Another group activity we do well: eating.  We’ve … Continue reading

stopover in dubai

After 18+ hours of travel, I arrived in Dubai a few hours ago for a 12 hour layover and decided to attempt pictures and a blog post. While it’s considered overnight here, thankfully I’m still enough on Seattle time to process it more like a day spent walking around the airport. There were a few … Continue reading
