Smokin' Kebobs

Tonight my youngest brother made some really smokey kebobs. It was yummy. But smokey. Yummy nonetheless. And my older brother said that kebobs have all these vegetables for "decoration", and he said it was smokey caused my brother used cheap wood. Nuts. But probably true nonetheless.
Up in smokebobs!
Peeling coffee beans is a good way to past the time in the mountains. And you can help the job along by pounding it to release tension. Yes, yours. Not the beans'.
And while he sleeps...
My mother sends me the Warrior of the Light....and I make a bookmark...
...to mark his (not mine) words.
My older brother dropped off this book at my room after dinner, and I read it whilst feeding the only begotten son. As soon as he (the son) dozed off, I remembered that I had to finish my bookmarks for my bookmark swap. And whilst I was preparing for my crafting night, I remembered I hadn't submitted a tutorial yet to crafttutorials. So I did both at the same time. Funny how One Book can change everything. Good book this one.
And on that note, I will end with a passage from John Bunyan that the book quotes:
Although I have been through all that I have, I do not regret the many hardships I met, because it was they who brought me to the place I wished to reach. Now all I have is a sword and I give it to whoever wishes to continue his pilgrimage. I carry with me the marks and scars of battles - they are the witnesses of what I have suffered and the rewards of what I have conquered.
These are the beloved marks and scars that will open the gates of Paradise to me. There was a time when I used to listen to tales of bravery. There was a time when I lived only because I needed to live. But now I live because I am a Warrior and because I wish one day to be in the company of Him for whom I have fought so hard.
Peace. Love. Dream. Goodnight.
