Paladini Potpie

Adventures within The Crust!



Paladini Potpie

I discover this every few years, and each time I do I experience a kind of exciting serendipitous déjá vu. I realize I’m not drinking enough water. It might be because I get a certain kind of headache…or the skin on my face feels dry…or I just feel tired overall. But the interesting thing is, I don’t actually feel thirsty. I am thirsty. But I just don’t know it.

Of course I know water is good for me. (It “does a body good” way more than milk.) Besides quenching my thirst, it makes me healthier as it washes all kinds of impurities out of my body. But I forget.

So I discipline myself to drink more water. Okay, eight glasses a day – and I’ll make slash marks on the white board to keep track and make sure I do drink all eight of those glasses. The first one…

Welcome! My name is Andrena Paladini and this is a blog about family and love and faith and fun. I call it Paladini Potpie because a potpie is like an adventure in a crust. You never know what might come up, but it’s always going to be good! Think of the best potpie you’ve ever eaten…hot flaky crust holding a rich savory sauce and all kinds of pieces of meat and vegetables…and who knows what? As a family, we’ve chosen to live within the parameters of God’s love and protection. This is the crust of our Paladini Potpie. The crust never changes. Within this crust, the savory sauce of family love binds it all together. That is also fairly constant. But beyond the crust and the sauce we can add just about anything! Good ideas come our way and we’ve adopted and adapted them to add to what John calls our treasure box of memories. These stories and ideas from John’s treasure box of memories are the ingredients I’m putting into our Paladini Potpie. (Okay, so this ridiculous mixing of metaphors about treasure boxes and potpies is exactly what I’m talking about. Silly and ungrammatically correct. But both illustrations work… so we’ll mix them together and it’ll be just fine!) John and I have been married for 30 years. Our children have wonderfully doubled in number since David married Amanda, Monica married Dan, and Matthew married Sarah. And the newest little treats that have been added to our potpie are six adorable grandchildren - Ethan, Angelina, Nathan, Audrey, Maleia and Caleb! I hope you’ll subscribe to my Paladini Potpie blog, and keep up with all the fun new ingredients I add. Hopefully you’ll enjoy our stories and ideas, and find something you’ll want to put into your own potpie! Bon appétit!
