Join in on the fun over at Saundra's Blog.
The weather in my neck of the woods:
It's really cooling off, still have leaves on the trees and I'm relishing that. Fall goes so quickly here. I'm grateful for all the trees, as always.
One of my simple pleasures:
climbing in bed an hour early to read. I love it.
On my bedside table:
A Claim of her Own
On my TV:
Can you guess? Football.
On the menu for tonight:
Something using up leftover chicken from a roaster I did yesterday.
On my To Do List:
Friends to visit from out of town today, Joey's first therapy eye appt. today, looking forward to a fun meeting for CC this week and the last week of soccer. Swimming starts next week. That's just the basic stuff.
New Recipe I tried last week:
New? Um, nothing new. Lots of "fall" cooking though.
In the craft basket:
Don't you mean laundry basket?
Looking forward to:
End of soccer, Ralph being off the super-drug that keeps him so quiet. ;) The boys are making their own costumes this week, so I can't wait to see how that turns out.
Homemaking Tip for this week:
I read this in a magazine and plan to do it. Gather up all your decorating accessories and put them on a table. Then 'redecorate' your house with the same old stuff.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
The loss of a pregnancy or child is a sometimes kept-quiet affair, I loved this conversational entry from my doula-friend.
Favorite photo from last week:
this is the suitcase my Eli packed to go to Grandma's for the weekend. Full of toys and not a stitch of clothing.
Lesson learned the past few days:
I was reminded today that God cares us about us in the little stuff....He wants us to learn to bring them to Him.
On my Prayer List:
friends that need work, a friend in need, wisdom in mothering, patience, and an identity found in Him.
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Matthew 7: 7&8
Ask, and it will be given to you,
Seek and you will find,
Knock and it shall be opened to you.
Everyone who asks will recieve
everyone who seeks will find
everyone who knocks the door will be opened.
