Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.

Snack Idea: The Banana Dog

One of the homeschool teens that my daughter corresponds with online had an interesting snack suggestion the other day: a banana dog. It is his version of a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Instead of making this perennial favorite on regular bread, he puts the banana in a hot dog bun. How clever! It certainly makes sense, doesn’t it? A banana is shaped like a hot dog, so why wouldn’t it fit better in a hog dog bun than on a regular slice of bread? Call me simple, but I thought this was an ingenious idea. I may even try it someday soon. Keep the creative juices flowing, JP.
