Hi. I'm not sure how I got here (oh, I think your good authority), but I've been lurking here for a month or so. Hi!

Hi :) I thought I had commented on the Dickens post, but apparently I didn't, so this is probably my first comment on your blog. Love reading your thoughts!

Hi Jamie, I've been lurking since I got your Christmas card. Not much of a talker as it is but even less with writing!

Anyway, I read some of your back posts and I get the impression that you like spinach? haven't tried this recipe yet but I though you'd like it:

Savory Spinach Balls

2 10 oz package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed

1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup liquid egg substitute*
2 eggs, beaten
4 TBS butter, melted
2 TBS chopped fresh parsley
2tsp Italian seasoning, crushed
1 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp salt
3 cups whole wheat bread crumbs (about 3 slices of bread)

Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray.
drain spinach to remove most of the liquid. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add cheese, egg substitue, eggs, butter, parsley, seasoning, garlic powder and salt. Mix well. Stir in the bread crumbs and season to taste with pepper.

Divide the mixture into 48 balls and place on the baking sheet. Lightly coat the balls with cooking spray.

Bake for 10 min or until lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temp. alone or with marinara sauce for dipping.

*Not sure about the egg sub. I'm wondering if another egg would work or leave it out altogether.

Love your blog. I've commented once or twice. I think your reflections on faith, your family, and nfp are especially great. We're nfp slackers but since we're on number 5, I'm thinking we need to step it up a notch.

I'm here!

Hi Jamie!

Hello :) I've been lurking since I found your blog maybe a month or so ago. I think I might have gotten here after being linked to your post on breastfeeding in church? Maybe? Not sure, anyway, I enjoy your blog :)

Hi! I love your blog and in my head you're sort of a wise big sister or aunt. Not in a creepy way though, I promise!

Hello! I dip in and out!
best wishes,


de-lurking...what a great word! Your blog is great, so I will gladly de-lurk!

Hi! Currently I'm here when I can hijack a computer...

Hi Jamie! I first came over when Arwen linked to a post of yours about Linda Hirshman, a while back. I stayed for the wonderful wisdom and writing. Thanks for sharing!

Howdy! I really enjoy your blog. I miss all our conversations to and from Altamont! Happy New Year~!

Hi Jamie! This is Claire in Australia. I have you in my google reader, but this is a good excuse to click on over to ye olde blog! I'm mostly a lurker, commented once or twice. Bloody hot here at the moment, thinking of you and your cool weather.

Hi, Jamie! So much time has gone by since I first found your blog. I was single, still in college, and knew nothing about homebirthing or extended breastfeeding at the time. Now I'm married and have a 17 month-old son and even less intention of weaning right now than he has. And I'm more interested than ever in having a baby at home. (Didn't work out the first time, but who knows what God has in store for us?) All this is just to say: thank you. I've learned a lot from you.

Not really a lurker, but a very intermittant commenter. Hello! *waves*

Hey, Jamie. Lurking has been what I would call what I am doing. I really struggled after your posts leading up to the election. I sat around a grumbled out loud about all of it. Had real honest to goodness, I'm really upset to learn..." convesations with friends (real people friends, not the virtual variety about it). I use Google Reader and I debated (at every subsequent post) whether I could get past it. My reaction shocked me for lots of reasons. Anyway, hello, I'm de-lurking. I think I quit being mad when you posted you're real name.
Have a great day, Lady!

Hi, Jamie!


I'm not a lurker and I am a day late with this (I was in bed with strep yesterday) but I am saying hello nonetheless. I am impressed at your resolve to pray 20 decades of the rosary every day! I must do 5 per day (reflecting on the appropriate mysteries, depending on the day of the week) but 20 per? That's dedication!

Hi Jamie! *waving*!!

Hi :)
(I'd type more, but wriggly baby is currently occupying the arm that's better at one-handed typing)

Hi, Jamie - I'm delurking to let you know I've really enjoyed your very intelligent writing for a number of years (selkie) - your words on this blog have helped me with lots of kids/family/God thoughts! Thanks from a clergywoman,wife and mom in Northern Ontario!

I used to lurk, but I think I comment enough now that I don't qualify as a lurker. Saying "Hi" anyway. :-)

I don't know if I count as a lurker or not, but--hi! Hope you find your socks soon!

Did my last comment make it in? I don't see it, but I am suffering Pregnancy Brain...

Hi Jamie -
Delurking late...
I've read you for years - followed you here from your last blog. I had my third baby (who is now four) in the middle of my Ph.D. program (two months before comps)...I can identify with so much of what you write. I am inspired by your talents and enjoy reading about your family. Thanks for writing!

Hi! This post is a week old, but last Friday began the Week of Insanity Going Back to College, so...

The mention of college already tells you something about me, I suppose. I'm in the middle of my junior year of getting a B.A. in journalism and theology. I got here from a comment you left on Darwin Catholic a month or so ago, and stayed because I was highly amused.

Hello there. Delurking somewhat belatedly. Hi Jamie!
