  1. Blueberry pomegranate juice = yum. Those border crossing confiscations of fruit are so peculiar to me. That's so awesome that you are missionaries.(visiting from the Gratitude Community)

  2. Lovely list. Bagpipes *are* pretty intense, aren't they? I remember one morning in a practice room at college, some guy moved in on the next block of rooms and started playing bagpipes on the other side of the wall. It was so loud that I couldn't hear my flute in my own ears!

  3. Great blog!!!
