I am Listening to
the kids with all their giggling and conversation making new Wii characters. Everyone is off today for Martin Luther King Day.
I am Wearing
Jeans, my new black belt, a black longsleeve t-shirt and bare feet.
I am so Grateful for
the fact that we have medical care and treatment so accessible.
I'm Pondering -
"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
I am Reading -
The Hole in Our Gospel by Richard Stearns ( a life changing book and oh, so good, so good that I don't want to finish it as I feel like I will forget about all the meat therein).
I am Thinking
a nap sounds good, but I will probably just end up reading my fiction book the rest of the afternoon instead.
I am Creating
Still thinking of what I will create next, maybe baby baby slings for the girl's dolls.
I am Hoping and Praying
*that I can go with Steve to small group tonight, its been ages since I have been.
*for no one else in the family to get Strep Throat.
*to be feeling better as Steve heads back to work tomorrow.
Around the House
a good cleaning needs to be done tomorrow once everyone is back to work and school. Not much happened over the weekend with mom being sick.
From the Kitchen
Thankfully, I planned our meals for the week and got out to the grocery store before I got sick on Saturday.
Monday - Tuna noodle casserole for kids as mom and dad hope to go out before small group
Tuesday - Tacos, refried beans and applesauce
Wednesday - Chicken and Rice Casserole, salad, veggies and maybe homemade bread
Thursday - Baked Potato Bar and salad
Friday - Sloppy Joes, french fries, and fruit
Saturday - Pizza night or out
desserts and snacks to include: homemade cookies and chocolate souffle
One of My Favorite Things
hearing the kids playing and getting along.
A Few Plans for the Rest of the Week
Getting the house back in order and still to work family goals and vision for the new year.
