Monday Delight

Just a note (because I forgot last week) head over to Sandra's blog to hook yourself up. It's fun!!

The weather in my neck of the woods:

The weekend was wonderful, enough to work in the yard to tidy up for Winter, put up my new birdfeeders & take the boys for a long hike yesterday. But I just have to say, I love, love, love the changing of the leaves!

One of my simple pleasures:
Sleeping in. For the last 7 years I've been getting up with my kiddos at 6 a.m. This year they're old enough to play or read quietly while I sleep...sometimes until 7!!

On my bedside table:

Homer's Odyssey , A Change in Altidtude, , Wild Things, and a pile of sweet birthday cards to me,....& chapstick.

On my TV:

Yesterday, football, football, football- give me grace!

On the menu for tonight:

I think it's Eggplant Lasagna Mmm. Eggplant is a noodle substitute.

On my To Do List:

Nature Hike w/ CC today. Call our FSA to get some details worked out. Surgery for Ralph tomorrow. Hmpf! Wish my big sister a Happy Birthday!! Oh...and all those procrastination projects...painting, mailing a too-late birthday gift, you know.

New Recipe I tried last week:

I did a pork roast in the crockpot and when I came home it was G-O-N-E. I ate a hamburger that night. The house smelled so good, and everyone loved it.

In the craft basket:
Craft? This is not a priority.

Looking forward to:
Seeing Ralph through this surgery and recovery. I'm nervous.

Homemaking Tip for this week:

I've finally come to the conclusion that our home is a business and a home. We are here and using the place at all hours. This has helped me resign to the twice-weekly home blessings I need to do.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):

Not to brag or anything, but....peek here

Favorite photo from last week:

you'll have to wait for the story...

Lesson learned the past few days:

Sadness, despair, anxiety should be an alarm that I'm not listening to The Voice of my Father that calms, gives peace and hope. Listening for that alarm, and praying accordingly.

On my Prayer List:

direction for our family, as always that I would know that all the God has called me to is His perfect plan for me today, for tomorrow...the surgery, for a few friends who need marriage prayer

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:

Psalm 62:1-2
My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him. He alone is my Rock and my Salvation. He is my fortress I will never be shaken.

Eggplant lasagna sounds really good. I pray the surgery goes well. Have a great week.

Hey my friend. These little memes that you and I do are great (I really do love them!), but it doesn't measure up to a real face to face heart to heart.:)

Will be praying for Ralph tomorrow...and you! Is this for his foot? What time is it taking place?

Love ya.
