Happy Homemaker Monday- 1/30/17
Welcome to another Monday! Time is flying by this year already. Here we are a month into the New Year. I have been busy so far but plan to slow things down soon. Hope you have an amazing week!
Well, it snowed here this morning (in Virginia) and then the sun came out and now it's cloudy. That is typical weather here. It is supposed to be VERY cold all week. I heard a rumor that there is a big snow storm brewing for next week...I am hopeful!
On my reading pile:::
The Daniel Fast
Love's Enduring Promise (Love Comes Softly Series)
On my TV:::
I binge watched Rick Steve's Europe over the weekend (it was on Create all weekend). I love history and it makes me feel like I am actually there. It is probably one of my favorite shows. I don't have anything lined up to watch for the week except the Love Comes Softly Series that a friend let me borrow.
On the menu for this week:::
Monday- Burgers and fries (didn't have that over the weekend)
Tuesday- Goulash with salad and garlic bread
Thursday- "Fried" chicken with mac and cheese and corn
Friday- Breakfast (scrambled eggs, pancakes, bacon)
Saturday- grocery shopping day
On my to do list:::
The usual: laundry, dishes, homeschooling, tidying up. I do want to get into a normal routine after I have surgery but that will have to wait. Until then, I do what my body allows me to do...which isn't much but at least it's something.
Looking around the house:::
There are two baskets of laundry waiting to be folded and put away. The lunch dishes and in the sink. All three boys are watching a few minutes of tv before I make them do chores. We already did school work so they will have free time this afternoon.
From the camera:::
Something fun to share:::
Next week I will start The Daniel Fast. It is something I have always wanted to do and I feel like the time is right. I have prayed about it and feel led to begin my journey to a healthier me. I will have scalene blocks (injections) next Monday in Maryland. When I return home, the fasting begins. I will do this for 21 days. I will spend that time praying for my health and the possible surgery (it is pretty major). I am looking forward to it.
What I'm wearing today:::
Well, black leggings (again), a long and flowing shirt, and big sweater...and fuzzy socks and slippers. I am toasty warm.
One of my simple pleasures:::
Drinking hot tea with honey. It calms me and helps me to feel warm.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
"Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body." (1 Corinthians 6: 19-20)
