While Edouard Drops By Town

Hey, Siestas! While many of you are doing the usual thing, a lot of us in the Houston-Galveston area are holed up in our homes waiting for Tropical Storm Edouard to drop by town. (What was someone thinking? If it’s coming to Texas, it would be more aptly named Tropical Storm Bubba. If you must call it “Edouard,” please roll a very long “r.”) I was planning to take a much needed day off but I’d intended on doing it at the Galleria shopping with AJ while our darling Jackson was at Mother’s Day Out. As it turns out, most of the LPM staff has been instructed to stay home and only a few that live just down the street from the ministry are going to the office. It’s really not a day for getting your shopping bags to the parking lot of a large mall. It’s that kind of day when your umbrella turns inside out (I hate when that happens) and you nearly do the Mary Poppins.

So here we are at the Moore home, rain peppering against the windows: Keith, Amanda, Jackson, Beckham (very large sweet, sweet Golden Retriever), Queen Esther (AKA: Star – 3 month-old very happy, very active Border Collie), Angelina (AKA: Geli, Keith’s 2 month old German Shorthair – ADORABLE and has the cutest antics. She acts a lot like a bucking bronco at this point) and Little Fig (no trouble at all, mostly just causes AJ a few waves of nausea at this point). Curtis is speaking at a camp so he’s missing all the action. Amanda adds: Pics of the puppies are coming soon! They’re on my laptop but it’s at my house.

These are some highlights from the morning:
*Amanda very sweetly and patiently to Jackson at the breakfast table with his fruit cocktail: “Son, when you need to wipe off your hands, can we use a napkin instead of your hair?” (There’s not a bit of fresh fruit in the house. That’s why he had to have fruit cocktail. I hate having to feel guilty. And I hate fruit. Come to think of it, I do have cherries but Amanda swears they were the very things that caused the Great Diaper Blow-out of 2008.)

*It is 10:40 and AJ is on her third breakfast. Amanda adds: First my toast and canadian bacon, then Jackson’s uneaten toast, and finally some Cocoa Pebbles.

*The TV is messing up because of the storm so we’re watching Lion King. Jackson loves it. It only took Amanda a record 17 seconds to start crying. That “Circle of Love” opener gets her every time. Amanda adds: Um, that would be “Circle of Life.”

*I’ve given Jackson some multicolored stick notes to amuse himself and the room is well wallpapered in them. If you really squint, it kinda has that stained glass look. Now Jackson’s mad. A green one is stuck to his heel.

*I’m hungry but I can’t think of what I want to eat. Since Edouard decided to drop by at the very last minute, we just weren’t prepared with the great snacks I prefer for a long hold up. Most of what’s in the kitchen are the extra ingredients we didn’t need for our LPM lunch feast by Melissa last week. Today we can eat all the Ricotta Cheese and dill weed we want. (Don’t call CPS. We have plenty of Jackson food. It’s me I’m whining about.) Amanda adds: I’m not gonna lie. I got excited when I saw Spaghetti-O’s with meatballs in the pantry this morning. That’s what I’ll be having.

We love you. We hope you love us. Especially today. We need love.

UPDATES: (I know you are sitting on pins and needles.)
*Yes, Mr. Ed it is. Very good, Siestas. Very good indeed. I should have thought of that myself. I was late taking my vitamins this morning or I would have.

*Many rousing rounds of hide and seek. Oh, the joy Bibby brought Jackson when she hid in the dog crate.

*Keith went to the store! What a man!!! Groceries galore!! Fruit for the Mister: Grapes, nectarines, strawberries. Snacks for AJ and me: moon pies, stuff for queso. Real food for Keith to actually cook. Ick.

*AJ is eating spaghetti-o’s with meatballs.

Please, stay tuned. This is liable to be a nail biter.

*Yes, that’s exactly what we’ll do with the Ricotta. Almond flavoring and almonds. Yep. Great idea. Y’all are brilliant. I’m not doing that tomato thing though. That would require cooking. And my oven mitt is out on the bike seat.



3:00 PM. Amanda and Jackson still asleep. Watching Rachael Ray. (Why? Because I just baked a cake, didn’t I???) Did you know you can get Ecoli (sp?????) from your purse?

7:40 PM. 20 minutes before Jackson’s bedtime. All three dogs look like very happy drowned rats…and smell like them, too. Keith is watching the hunting channel acting like the rest of us aren’t here. He earned that right after making King Ranch Chicken for all of us for dinner. And used every pan in the kitchen. I’m sending those to Washington State, too. All of our hair looks like lightening struck the house and we were all holding golf clubs. Amanda and I are in the corner of the kitchen floor playing matchbox cars with a two and a half year old who does not appear to be in the remotest ballpark of sleepy. We knew we were descending into delirium when, a few minutes ago, we broke out in an impromtu duet of the 80’s version of “Pass It On” with our best Tiny Tim voices. To which Jackson yelled, “NOOOOOOOOOO!”

Oops. The matchbox car just broke.

Amanda’s having more cake.

It’s the circle of love.

    Sounds like a SD blizzard – stuck inside for a whole day – although I always love a good blizzard to have everyone home and totally relax!!

    I just wanted to write and share what a NEAT time the simulcast was. I was at the one in Pierre, SD and we had over 100 ladies. I must say that I am EVER appreciate of all the prayers that went into the event for safety. As we were traveling to the event Friday evening we were waiting to turn left off the highway and my mom (who was driving) continued to watch this semi quickly approaching behind us. I turned around and saw the semi finally lock his brakes and his trailer starts to fish tail. I said “you better get off the road now” and she quickly pulled off to the right. The next morning when we drove by we saw the trailer marks the driver left and I was shocked by how close they actually came to us. Praise God for answered prayers!!

    About the event, thanks for sharing the perseverance it requires you to finish a study. I needed to hear that and the very next day at church out pastor touched on that. He had such a great analogy. We are in the middle of harvest in SD and he asked the farmers, “What do you do if your combine breaks down? What do you do if it rains? What do you do when a tire blows out? Do you quit and give up and leave the wheat stand in the field? No, you go after that harvest. You fix what is broke and you go after that harvest.” Oh how that touched me and oh how I needed to hear both our pastor’s comment as well as Beth. I am on a committee at church and I feel like quitting – but no, I will GO AFTER THE HARVEST!

    Send that T.S. to SC we need it here, wouldn’t mind sitting out in much needed rain.
    Would any one have a ticket stub from the BM event in Columbia, SC in 1999 they would mind letting me have? I have a special secretive need for it. Let me know. Ty!

    If you continue to be bored, get on youtube and go back to your childhood (well, maybe–my mother says she was in school when President Kennedy sent this song to all the schools in the country, but she never remembers doing the workout). I, however, 20-something years later, had a P.E. coach who pulled it out for our middle school P.E. class and made us do it. SOOOOO–when I started home schooling my five year old this week, we started our day (after prayer and Scripture, of course) with "Chicken Fat" exercise. I play the song off youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFofqe26t-4 and we do the exercises together–and yes, I'm SORE from it today! If you need a "tutorial" on what the exercises look like, check out this youtube video to see them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaPszVnodxs&feature=related
    It's a completely silly thing to do, but it is something ACTIVE you can still do from your living room floor! Hope you enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey Beth and Amanda,
    Roy, Buddy and I have been home today. We’ve had very little rain. Finished reading Christ the Lord and Roy is cleaning out files. Neither one of us is bored enough to cook much less bake. We are considering who might be open for some take out.

    Ok I should’ve read through all the replies before I commented the second time, but I’m seeing talk of homemade “Almond Joys”–do we have a recipe floating around! That sounds so yummy! I don’t need them right now, but can you share a recipe? Pleasssssse?!!!

    BTW, Keith gets “permanent” points for his trip to the store in the midst of a hurricane, doesn’t he?

    Thank you!

    This is a great post. Your pantry problems earlier today remind me of when I lived in CA and how my friends and I would joke about an earthquake not being able to happen because the pantry did not enough food for three days in it. :0) glad you tried a to make a cake today. I hope it turns out wonderful. My experience is that any homemade chocolate cake is great, no matter the texture. I am baking bread today. I hope it turns out. I never really know if it is going to turn out or not, but just like cake it still tastes good even if the texture is not quite right.

    Sorry that you all are so bored today. I am glad that Amanda and Jackson are at your house because then you won’t be bored and worried. We have monsoons here almost daily and they are such an awesome show of what God can do.

    Having relaxing and bless day. I have got to go my two youngest (10 and 16)are making dinner and they need some help.

    P.S. Take heart Amanda he will soon move from using his hair to using his clothes to wipe his hand, nose and what ever else seems needing of a good cleaning. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am praying for ya’ll! I have three questions though.

    1. Why is the oven mitt on the bike seat?

    2. Did you know you can also get MRSA from your purse? If you set it down on the floor it can bring all sorts of germs into the house. Scary.

    3. How was the cake? Yummy I’m sure. I baked a shoofly pie today.

    Beth, I wish ya’ll would send some of that rain to Dallas. We are a bit cooler today at 99 degrees but some much needed rain would help bunches. It was a woppin’ 108 here yesterday!!!

    I love, love, love, love, love, to cook. In a matter of fact you could fry an egg on the sidewalk today. I don’t always have to heat up the oven to cook!! hahahaha!! When I DON’T cook everyone knows something is a miss or…….. I went shopping. The only thing that keeps me from cooking. I love the Galleria here in the Dallas area and I have shopped at yours as well. I have family in Houston and they are all holed up also. I kinda look forward to bad weather ( not that I like damage to be done to anything or anyone). I try to prepare my pantry for all sorts of tasty delights to feed my family and neighbors.

    I don’t like fruit either. Maybe some grapes and pineapple at times but for the most part it is yukky and I’m havin’ no part of it.

    How do they come up with these names for the storms? Do they have like ….a roulette wheel full of hurricane names and spin it or what? Just curious.

    Amanda, you need some fresh veggies sweet thing. The salt in the canned foods will make you swell up so badly!! And in this heat….well, you just don’t want to do that. Quite uncomfortable to say the least.

    You ARE dearly loved Beth, Amanda and Melissa. With tears in my eyes even as I write this, I can not tell you Beth, what your ministry has done in my life. God knows…. and it is not something I could ever speak or write as words are not sufficient, but God and I know of this place in my very soul. I’m so very grateful to God for you and I Praise Him for equipping you!!!!

    Bless you Siesta Mama, Amanda and Melissa

    Well, if you are still reading our comments I want you to know that I invited a friend who used to do all your Bible studies with me to one of the simulcast viewings and she accepted. During our study time on Believing God she stopped coming to all classes. All manner of trials have come on her in the last few years. She only came to Friday night of the simulcast. She emailed me today saying she was so convicted that she knows she has to move herself and her 16 year old son out of her boyfriend’s house. She said, “I need you to pray that God’s will will be done in my life.” AMEN! What a mighty God we serve!!! I shared with her that Jesus loves her this I know for the Bible tells me so!

    Love the update on “Edouard”. Somehow you never get those kinds of details on the Weather Channel. With all the pets and “kids”, including Mama Beth and Amanda, and baking I bet the house looks like the hurricane actually entered inside!! Those “stick” notes all over! You are too funny. There is one question though that I think I do NOT want the answer to. Just what do you do or have in your purse that would cause you to catch E-Coli. On second thought, don’t answer that one.

    Love you all and are real glad you are safe.

    Okay…. first of all- Last weekend was amazing. My mother and I attended at her church and participating together really helped to begin the healing process for some nasty wounds between us. It was my first experience with of the facets of your ministry, and I must say- I certainly heard from the Lord. He is birthing a new passion in me… I’m really learning to “treasure the wonder.”

    Secondly- I just wanted to point out an amazing coincidence between your daughter and I. I have a 26 month old Jackson and a “little fig” of my own due on February 16, 2009. Just thought that was funny.

    Have fun with Edouard….

    You would be impressed…I am having a friend over for dinner..just burgers on the grill and because I promised her dinner if she would help me do something in my house…

    Anyway…even more impressive instead of the usual patties that I buy already frozen I actually have meat that I put applesauce, steak sauce, itallian dressing and some kind of “steak/meat” powder spice and mixed it with my own hands!!!!!

    Wish I could have a day off for weather…I would relish being bored!

    Um, ladies, can I just say that it is a good thing that you mostly have good weather down there in Texas? You would never survive our multiple snow-ins and rain-ins up here in Canada. You would clearly go stir crazy (or end up weighing 500 lbs from all the cake and cocoa puffs). ๐Ÿ™‚

    Also, hasn’t anyone told you lovely southern ladiethat it is impolite to “yell”? That’s what it seems like when you type in all caps… lol… so it read to me like you and Melissa were screaming at eachother about baking a cake…hahaha.

    I think this was the funnest post yet. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Beth, AJ, and Melissa,
    I’ll bullet this list for the sake of space:
    1. Anyone who eats Spaghettios w/ meat balls out of a can will get morning sickness whether they’re pregnant or not!
    2. If you’re a boy, wiping your face on a napkin is purely optional. I remind my 7 y/o boy to wash his hands after he pee’s and his response is, “But Mom, I didn’t touch anything!” Get used to it.
    3. Some of the most common bateria on a woman’s purse is urine and feces – it’s because we set them on the floors or toilet backs in public bathrooms. Pretty gross huh!
    As you can see, there’s no storm in Apex, NC – but it’s so hot and the air quality is so bad, we’re as inside as you are.
    Praying safe passage through the storm!

    rHi Beth,
    Love you, glad you have been a part of my life. Glad I saw you on Sunday. Glad I got a contract job. I called yesterday and sad because my dog Hershey is 14 1/2 years old and his kidneys are failing as well as an inflammed pancreas. I’ve had him since 94. I cried yesterday and called LPM. I’ve never been through this before. I got fluids in the little guy and a couple of shots for the panacreas. If nothing takes by Thursday, it’s just a matter of time. He is not eating nor drinking. I needs some prayer too. Love Allison

Talk about singing in the storms of life! Glad you were dry and safe!

    Hello to all of the Moores-Jones-Fitzpatricks! Please know that you are all dearly loved and appreciated! Beth and crew – the simulcast was wonderful – too many gotcha moments to list here! A couple of comments, though:
    1. Travis, only you can get away with wearing a t-shirt over a button-down (with cuff-links, no less)!
    2. When you announced that all sites successfully received your broadcast, I was reminded of a dear matriarch of our church who once told me to be sure to “always pray for the machinery because that’s wher the devil likes to be.” I must have looked puzzled, because she gently explained, “What other reason would there be for all of the missionaries’ slide shows to come up backwards, upside down, or out of order?” She was right, because the first night of the first study (Believing God) we hosted at our church three years ago, we had 10 minutes of no picture, only sound, and I was the one stuck running the AV system. I prayed fervently, pushed some buttons, and the devil must have been cast out because you reappeared on the screen with no further glitches. I have taken her advice seriously since then and we always pray for the technology before we begin an evening of Bible study!

    That’s all for now – love you dearly and wish I could see you live in Las Vegas on my (40th) birthday this year! Blessings on you and on the machinery as you continue being poured out for Him!
