I'm linking up today with Diary of a Stay at Home Mom and Happy Homemaker Monday.
The weather in my neck of the woods:
Cloudy and gray as it has been since last September. Very depressing.
Things that make me happy:
The occasional one-day-stand of sun we seem to be getting. Watching my garden grow.
Book I'm reading:
Working on a summer schedule that will factor in some time for me to actually take the time to read. Something I miss dearly.
What's on my TV today:
Must say I never take time for TV. Way too much to accomplish elsewhere.
On the menu for dinner:
I always keep frozen taco meat from our yearly supply of elk and venison on hand. Tonight's no-brainer dinner will be a taco salad.
On my To Do List:
Keep looking for the pullet hen that escaped yesterday. I can't imagine she'll survive long on her own. Tackle nine-year-old's bedroom with her.
New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
Nothing I can think of presently.
In the craft basket:
I did see a great tutorial for a prayer journal that could be used for most any type of journal that I would like to try...time permitting that is.
Looking forward to this week:
The weatherman's promise of some sun. Any stretch of sun longer than a day or two is something to celebrate this year.
Tips and Tricks:
So thankful for the laminator I purchased last fall. So useful for lists of repeating items.
My favorite blog post this week:
Haven't had too much time to go through my feed reader yet.
No words needed:
Lesson learned the past few days:
From my wandering pullet hen...do not be in such a hurry to leave the protection of the Father. His ways are perfect.
On my mind:
Reflecting on the fact that my second-born will be a senior in high school next year. His last year of football will be here before we know it. We're praying for a healthy season in which he can play his heart out.
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
The parables Jesus told of shepherds and farmers hold so many parallels to life. It is only a matter of time if you dabble in hobby farming to be keenly aware of how they specifically point to key areas of our lives.
Enjoy your week!
