Lemonade by the Gallon


Who am I?

I am a woman, a wife, and a mom, a daughter, a sister, and a friend.

I am thankful for what Jesus has done for me,

and I like my life.

I hope that I can be an encouragement to others.

Originally, I posted under the pseudonym, Mrs. Nicklebee*,

so if you see references to that, that’s me.

It has been a long time since I first began blogging here,

 and I took quite a long break.

A lot has happened in my life since I stepped away from here,

and I don’t really feel like the same person that I was then.

I don’t feel like being Mrs. Nicklebee* anymore.

I am just Esther.

  1. I was homescholed all the way through high school. My mom never did “school-at-home,” which I’m very thankful for, because since she didn’t, I enjoyed high school. The most important thing I learned while being come schooled was simply how to learn.


  2. I’m glad to hear you had a good experience in homeschooling, Kelsey.

  3. Guess how much my blog was worth… $50

    Sad but true.



  4. That’s funny, Lacy, because I think mine has gone down substantially since I put that gadget on there!

  5. I so enjoy stopping by your blog rarely when I have the time! So funny about the homeschooling word. It is how I usually do it and then I have had so many critics say it was home schooling (even my computer spell check) that I am confused and inconsistent! Thanks for clarifying. Made me giggle. I always appreciate your comments. Blessings and grace and giggles to you today!

    PS Have you read or seen Nicholas Nickleby?
    Presently on my son’s blog so that is why it came up as Eucharisto!

  6. Hi Sally!

    I have the same spell check issue with “homeschooling”. I just ignore it! lol

    No, I don’t think I have read N.N., though I have been meaning to. That question is why there’s such a huge gap between your comment and this one! Every time I think to look up N.N. to see if it’s what I’m thinking of, I’m doing something else and can’t get to it. I finally thought of it today while I had some actually free, clear-headed-thinking time! lol

    Thanks for stopping by. It’s always nice to “see” you. 🙂


    your blog came up when I did a search about gluten free communion
    I would like to prepare a booklet, to present to my bishop ( Episcopal), explaining gluten intolerence and advising how to present GF communion AND keep it seperate from wheat
    Do you know if anyone has done this?\
    I hate to spend time doing something that has already been done!

    Hi Teresa,

    Thank you for your patience! Somehow I missed your comment (several times) this week. I’m sorry about that!

    If you don’t already have your answer, I am sure something is out there on GF communion. The first thing I would do is contact another Episopalian church or three and see what they do. I noticed on this google search that there seem to be a number of them that are sensitive to the needs of gluten intolerant folks like us. They might be better able to address your specific denominational needs than I am. Also, someone else’s bishop may be willing to contact yours.

    God bless!
